    It is the year 2005.

    A classic line from the Transformers movie. Where were you in 2005? I was single, living at home up here in ol Canada Land, collecting the Cyberverse line, but Im not sure where I was working at the time. I think a local grocery store, because walmart was a bit later. My mom had just sold the house and we moved to a new one a few years prior.

    I remember a lot of cool figures for Cybertron amd the unicron trilogy, they were some of my favorite figures. I think Binaltech/Alternators were out around the same year.

    At the start of the year, I was living in Australia (I had moved there in 2004). In March of that year, I met the woman that I would eventually marry. By October we had both moved back to Europe and had found a place together in Vienna. I think it's fair to say that it was a year that set the stage for my future - it was basically a year where good things were constantly happening in my life, and I've never looked back.

    In deep in my mental unstableness that made me refuses to eat because i hallucinated maggots and roaches in my food and lost a lot of weight so basically I was starving to death but that same year I finally got the help I needed.

    I was 21.

    I was about 9. The main thing I remember about 2005 was Revenge of the Sith. Specifically all the toys and displays at the store. That movie was everywhere, I'm not sure I've seen a movie marketed that heavily since. Aside from that, 2005 must have not been an overly important or memorable year to me.

    I was 26, living with my girlfriend in our first apartment. I had been working at Target for a couple years at that point, but was unhappy with it and started thinking about going back to school (which I did a year later).

    I was beginning to lose interest in (new) Transformers at this point and stopped collecting the new toy lines. I was still coming to TFW, but less often because I was spending more of my online time playing Star Wars Galaxies and EQ2.

    Revenge of the Sith had ended another Star Wars trilogy, but Batman Begins came along and pulled the Dark Knight out of the slums and kicked off the Dark Knight trilogy.

    I was 20. Working and partying. I did occasionally lurk on the message boards, but I was far more concerned with uh... other things at that time. I think my longest relationship at that point was 2 weeks.

    Haha. I do remember taking classes at the local community college only to drop out 2 weeks into the whole thing.

    I was 10. I that was the year my family went to Lego Land and SeaWorld. I wasn't that into Transformers at the time, but I was obsessed with Bionicle and Star Wars

    I was living in Chelsea, Manhatten with my future x-wife. Either heading to or in my last semester at college.

    That was a great time in my life.

    I was 7, and still religiously loved transformers and obsessing over them as I had done for about two-three years at that point.

    Not much has changed. :lol

    18 and a senior in high school. Which is about the time Transformers was really losing my interest. Just didn't like Energon or Cybertron much. Holy heck I didn't even know about TFW2005 and was still posting on TFormers.
