October 29, 1990
I meet up with my first Transformer. This meeting was largely determined my future life. Before that I was fond of aircraft models, I liked the process of building model airplanes. And it all began? ..1990.
I was 9 years old. I was walking with my mother. Calm October evening, late and overcast. Burning street lights, small drizzling rain, fine - almost invisible. In the bright circle of light located near the girl, on a cot where lay the children's diverse stuff: dolls, key chains and so forth. Stopping to look at all this stuff, I saw a small white plane, sealed under a bubble on a blue planshet. The plane was unusual: his body is not like a sleek, streamlined body models, he had 2 tail, somehow stacked one on top of another, and a slit nozzle shape. When my mother and I began to consider it - we saw the fuselage with a HEAD and red eye, back under the body were beaten with fists, and the side below the aircraft cannon and rocket launcher lying. Finally, intrigued by the mysterious combination of mechanical - "Why did the plane head, arms and gun?" - We bought this strange machine. 6 rubles was worth it - not cheap by the standards of the time.
At home, we carefully examined the alien machine from outer space. It was enough to straighten the tail and landing gear - the plane has finished "aircraft" look. And then what?? Instructions on the planshet was not, only 3 photos, from which there was one clear - the plane. Have been able to understand, and I saw a wonderfully sight to see an expanded twice and a third folded, the aircraft has found his feet, hands and head, becoming a slender, graceful robot gazes at me. It was love at first sight, although I had no idea that Valkyrie will captivate my heart forever...More years later...
More has happened since. Valkyrie has long been on the comp-table, turned into transformers base. Yellowed, has not transformed an ancient relic of my Transformers. Ancient... and still a favorite. Looks like on that and the Valkyrie - "The Witch", queen of hearts.
