Absolutely! I wouldn't be caught dead with that weird-looking pink transformer either.

I've always been the tomboy type that played with toys like Transformers, my brother's He-man toys (the originals back in the day) and even basketball, football and soccer (with my female friends who were also into more stereotypical male toys)
I don't keep up with TF:Prime but from what little I've seen, I kind of like that Arcee. Other than that, I don't pay much attention to females vs males but like different characters for their personalities. My favorite bots: Optimus, Ironhide, Prowl, the Wreckers (in various incarnations), some of the beast wars (but that's because I love animals more than because I liked the show), not too many of the Cons altho Soundwave is always fun.
Big collection? Define big? I haven't counted but I'm guessing somewhere around 300. That's going to be the max soon because I'm out of shelf space.

I don't feel weird liking them but I find some people's reactions to my interests to be weird.
I buy whatever I like and don't pretend anymore. I'm 40 (yikes, where did the time go?) and don't think I owe anyone an explanation for my purchases. Altho I enjoy it when store employees get into conversations about games, toys, etc. Makes it seem like others are into the same things I am and that's often unusual.

On a side note, I'm a male brony.
I really should watch that. Everyone's talking about it. Love the new Thundercats tho and already have the 'Cats in the 4 inch line.
