    Who needs sleep? Not me. Not at all.


    Seriously though. I’d murder the lady next to me that kept pushing over into my seat for a good 20 minute doze.

    @Arufonsa I've been there recently. What really helped me was taking a step back, looking at the things I liked about transformers, and trying to find the things not unique to this brand in my other interests. It allowed me to really focus on the parts of the franchise I enjoy (ie characters and story, as well as cool engineering tricks), while discovering other interests I never would’ve found otherwise. I’ll always have a soft spot for transformers, as this community was there for me at a time when I really needed it, but it’s no longer the singular focus of my life. I try to stick with the periphery of a given fandom now, and talk to generally positive people, unfortunately a lot of times the most toxic people in any community are the ones that proport to enjoy it the most. It’s the point when people start transitioning from “fans” to “fanatics”

    I'll admit, I was kind of hoping to hear what TJ would've had to say in response to my question. Still, it was great as always to hear you guys' response (and seriously, someone make that DC crossover happen. The ideas were just so amazing!)

    Should they bring back marvel crossover because Marvel celebrate 80th anniversary.

    Ayy! As to the fandom fatigue question, I think another part of it is the social circles involved in your fandom. If you still want to talk transformers and don't want to be with the people, hit me up on twitter or something. I like sharing pics and talking about the toys and media every now and then, but I'm not "on" about transformers all the time. And I like to think I'm not unpleasant to talk to/hang out with. I've been feeling the same way about... different forums on tfw2005 (or reddit), so would love to take those conversations elsewhere. I just don't know enough about social media to engage with people, I feel like I follow some good people and try to engage, but it feels like talking to a void sometimes.

    But I also think it's totally ok to step back from what you're a fan of if you're not feeling it anymore.

    Great episode! My childhood Decepticon team was Submaruder, Finback, Quake, an eraser Megatron, and some micro masters. It was interesting to say the least. Eventually I got g2 Tank Megatron, so he replaced eraser Tron, and I had action master Starscream. He always feel apart, just like the movie! ;) 
    I also remember getting a G1 Sandstorm at a yard sale and I thought he was Springer until I was like 10 years old.
