Believe me, I don't curse on this site nearly as much as I do everywhere else. Except real life. I only curse to myself in real life.

Google image'd Armada Blurr in '07 and came to his gallery here. Then learned about the liveaction movie and the rest is history.

I can't remember, but I imagine it involved gigantic talking dragons, magical feathers, and lady dwarves. Oh, and questing. Yyyyeeeaaahhhh, the questing.

I don't remember, but it was sometime around 2009, when I first got into TFs.
I was into Animated back then, it was my first TF series. I get the feeling that I found Seibertron while i was either searching for Animated figure galleries, or trying to find reviews of TFA Shockwave and/or Blitzwing.

After that, Seibertron.com lived in my favorites bar for a few years up until now, when I joined the boards.

My buddy GEEWUN showed me the toy galleries here a couple years back, and I was immediately a regular visitor, especially in the kitbash section. After a year or so, I finally signed up.

Back in 2003 I was diggng for more news on the prototype pictures of the first Masterpiece Optimus Prime and Binaltech Smokescreen. Discovered the forums and that was that. Stayed a regular until the first movie came out.

It is actually kinda simple, my old forum was pretty much dead at some time, so I quit. But since I still wanted to talk with others about my passion, I had decided to find a new one, so I google it... :D

The usual story; watched the movies, got interested, googled, and found this little piece of transforming plastic paradise.

For one reason or other, I didn't actually sign up until just after ROTF. I suppose I just wanted a place to complain about Leo and Sam's mom.

Found this back in '07, just thought it was a news site, I only joined in 2011, got involved until 2012 when some serious s*** hit the fan, courteousy of my parents. Joined back up in 2014 and am planning on staying here for as long as possible.

I was reading Roger Ebert's review of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Roger referenced Seibertron.com in his review about how dissapointed some of their fans are at the movie. :michaelbay:

I honestly can't recall how I found this site specifically, if I had to guess I'd say it was something about looking up further information and/or images of new Armada toys since I wasn't too impressed with the small number of relatively low-res images available on bwtf at the time. I do remember lurking around for quite some time before actually joining. I think it was around the time prototype pictures of Armada Unicron were released that I got so excited I had to register and join in the conversations, since where I lived at the time, there was REALLY nobody to talk robots with.

Actually, now I remember that I was like to watch you galleries of action figures, back in time when I I really wanted to have one but don't have enough money. So I think I had discovered this site twice.

..I actually have no idea.

(This is the kind of thread bump that I can get behind, though!)

I remember lurking for a while, but am not entirely sure how or when I decided to get into the boards.
It was over summer, between my undergraduate and masters programmes, that's for sure. And it was when I started making lists of my collection. So maybe it was looking at what else was out there to add to mine, came across the galleries and joined in.

I just searched my posts, and found the first one in the Awesome pictures thread: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=80180&p=1285666#p1285666

:D

Back in the day I posted at TFormers, but I faded out of the hobby. When I came back the forum was a ghost town. So I looked around and landed on Seibertron because I liked the look and layout. Especially, with the forum posts linked to the news stories, it gave me a strange sense that I was a part of something (if that makes any sense).

I honestly don't remember how I found Seibertron. It was probably a link to one of the Galleries.
