My favorite Transformers memory:

One Christmas in Buffalo, NY, my uncle hinted that I may be getting a Transformer from him. In the days leading up to Christmas Eve, I couldn't stop thinking about which one I'd be getting. The night before Christmas Eve, I dreamed that it was Soundwave, but when I opened my uncle's gift to me Christmas Eve night, it turned out to be Megatron, which was just as good.

I played with Megatron nonstop that night, went to sleep, opened my "From Santa" presents Christmas morning, but kept playing with Megatron until ...

I was showing some other family members how to transform Megatron, but I did the transformation in the wrong order, and his legs snapped off with hardly any effort. I was crushed. I hadn't even had the toy for 24 hours before breaking him. Of course, there were no more Megatrons at the store when we took it back the following day, so I had to settle for a G.I. Joe Dragonfly helicopter. Still a cool toy, but it was no Megatron.

Without a doubt, my best memory of Transfomers has to be the first time I saw the original movie. Everything about it was so amazing to me! Seeing a Transformer the size of Unicron on the big screen absolutely blew me away, being brought to tears when Optimus Prime died, even hearing my 1st cuss words spoken in an animated movie! And to this day, I still find myself singing "The Touch" and "Dare to be Stupid". From that point on, I was absolutely hooked!

When I was little I would spend a lot of time between my grandparents or great-aunt"s houses so I would try to teach them how to transform them. I think the first 1 got was either Rodimus Prime or the predacon Headstrong, and it only took 20 years to finally complete Predaking!

What I have isn't so much a memory as it is something that sparks a memory.

My very first Transformer was G1 Overbite of Seacon notoriety. I was maybe 3 when my Abuela gave it to me. I remember playing with that toy for endless hours, taking it with me everywhere I went. I spent time with friends, my grandparents, my cousins... and even if I wasn't necessarily playing with it at the moment, Overbite wasn't too far. I still have that very same figure years later, and while he's missing some parts, and he's got a rusty screw and loose limbs, he still holds a special place in my heart because he reminds me of simpler times.

I barely remember any of the G1 episodes growing up. All I truly remember was the two-part Return of Optimus Prime, and the second half of The Rebirth, Part II.

I used a tape recorder to record the audio off one of my cartoon video tapes, which included The Rebirth. The clip began with: "Ah-HA! HA! HA! Those Autobots are gonna be molten metal!"
"Alright, knock it off! And what of my weapon?"
"It's me, I'm Fracas! And if you think Blowpipe was bad, I'm worse!"
"And you're louder."

I memorized most of the dialogue listening to that tape over and over. Years later, I would play it back in my head and understand the dialogue at a level that I didn't when I was younger.

Ok, this one is pretty embarrassing, but here goes:

When I was 9, my parents went on vaction, and my brother and I stayed with my grandparents. I loved Transformers back then, and my grandmother knew that, so she took us to Toys R Us.

Never before had I seen so many Transformers at once. All I can remember is a giant wall of red and purple boxes...

Anyway, I was staring at the wall for so long, I forgot I had to go to the little boy's room. Needless to say, I ended up standing in a puddle.

Hmmm..maybe "fond" isn't the best word to describe this memory...but man, that was a great wall of toys!

My fondest memory wasn't one moment, but every moment as a child waking up every morning in the late 80's to early 90's to watch the transformers. I found the transformers at a time where it was on in syndication or what not and they only played at the earliest of mornings ranging from 3-5 am, so when i found them on, i would crawl over my siblings who slept on the floor in the living room of a small house to catch a glimpse of the g1 heroes that would stay with me for the past 20 years, especially Optimus Prime. for some reason he was just awesome, with his trailer and roller iono why but he stood out the most memorable over the rest HAHAHA.

I come from a family of 8, and at the height of the Transformer popularity, we were living in Puerto Rico. Both of my parents worked very hard to feed all of us, because having a big family is not that easy! Anywho, I knew that our financial situation wasn't that great, so I planned to get good grades in school to ensure that I would be able to get my Favorite Transformer (at the time!), which has G1 Devastator. I was so fascinated by the Constructicons and Devastator, that I would have done anything for it. They were my first intro into the combiners' team, and just the idea of combining other robots into a giant robot was awesome!

Getting close to the holidays, I told my parents what I wanted, and I had explained to them why I wanted it, and show them what I had done to earn it. Sadly, they would tell me, that things were looking very tight financially and that they wouldn't be able to get that for me. As it was, it seemed that none of the kids would get what we would have asked for, other than clothing.

So the day came, and we started opening our gifts. Again, it wasn't a lot, but everyone at least got something. But then my father brings to the living room where we were gathered a few more gifts. He hands them out to everyone, and it seemed that we all got the one thing we really wanted. I got the Devastator 6 pk gift set, to which I burst out into tears! I don't think I ever hugged my parents that hard before. It was the best memory of getting a Transformer...EVER.

My favorite memory involves a summer spent at my grandmother's house. She lives on a farm and gave me a task of collecting apples from her orchard. I would be rewarded with one penny for every apple I brought her, and I had just seen a commercial for the Insecticons, so I knew how many apples I needed to collect. I spent all day harvesting apples for her, and after she was finished turning them into applebutter and applesauce, she drove me to Hills so I can pick up Kickback! That was my favorite memory involving Transformers and my grandmother... :)

The best two memories of Transformers is one when G2 came out i had bought Longhaul and asked for the rest of the constructicons for my birthday. Well my parents could not find them but they got me all the G2 combaticons insted and i loved it. The other is when i decided to try and collect the marvel tf comics and my dad took me to a comic convention to help me try to find them.

My favorite Transformers childhood memory is probably discovering the cartoon one afternoon by catching "More Than Meets the Eye," part 2. I'd missed part 1, so the quick recap at the beginning of part 2 was like information overload: "... the Decepticons turn oil into Energon cubes ...." :) Cut to Huffer and Brawn under the burning oil rig -- and I've been a fan ever since.

Memory is what it is, but when I was 5 I think, I entered a coloring contest and won 3rd place. The prize was 10 bucks towards any toys. I saw Soundwave and Buzzsaw on the shelf and was so excited because either my Mom hadn't found him yet or only had got me Autobots for my birthday. He went on to being my favorite toy and I still have him today. :CON:

My most memorable experience? That's easy- the first time I Transformers on T.V.

It was on a Sunday morning, and I woke up disappointed that there was going to be no cartoons on. We had this 13 inch black and white T.V. that had those turn dials. I kept turning them both until I picked up a Pink Panther cartoon. I kept yelling, "hey mom, I found cartoons on channel "U"!" (the top turn dial had a U on it, but I was really picking up the early days of our channel 49- WDBD) I sat through Pink Panther, The Rocky and Bulwinkle Show, and some other nice cartoons, but at the end the first episode of my beloved cartoon came on!! I was glued to the tube the entire time. It was love at first sight. Subsequently, my first toy from the show was Optimus, which made me love the toys forever, but I'll never forget getting to watch the cartoon for the first time.

You know- I had posted this on the Geek To Me site, but I wanted to add one more thing. I didn't have the greatest childhood, as some of the members on here would also confess. My parents weren't the greatest in the world- and I'll just leave it at that. My grandparents did their best. My grandma new how much I loved Transformers and always got me one when I got to see her. The cartoon and toys helped me deal with the craziness back then. People can say what they want about how "weird" I am for that, but I'm glad that Transformers came into my life, and I know I'll never forget them......

I was born during the Beast Wars era, but my earliest and most favorite memory is when I received Robots In Disguise Super-Class Optimus Prime for Christmas when I was six years old. I have no idea where he is now, but he was my most favorite toy for the entire time I had him.

When I was a kid, my dad said yes when I bugged him to buy Transformers#1 by Marvel Comics back in 1984!

Also, back in the 80s like many, my parents would by Go-Bots instead of real Transformers because they were 1/3 to 1/4 the price. One day they got me a real one, the Insecticon Bombshell!

My favorite memory is when I first laid eyes on a Transformer. My brother and I were over at my cousin's house when he brought out this blue Walkman, or at least, what appeared to be a blue Walkman. He proceeded to twist and turn it until it resembled everybody's favorite Decepticon communications officer Soundwave. The best part was when he opened up the battery case, took out the batteries and showed my brother and I that even the batteries were not what they seemed.

From then on, by brother and I decided to start collecting TFs. He had Decepticons while I had Autobots. The rest is history.

My favorite moments of transformers was the episode of the aerialbots. Probably the second time that there was more than just one jet that was an autobot. And not just jet autobots but that they can transform into a huge robot names Superion. It was the coolest moment in transformers history for me. The look in my eyes just told my mom and dad what I wanted when I turned 12. The most badass of 80's robots.

My favorite memory was when I saw the first Transformers commercial and shortly after that, one of my friends got Prowl. He let me have his catalog that came with the toy and I was completely enraptured with what I saw. Two toys in one! I especially loved the Decepticons with Soundwave, Megatron, and the Cassettes being everyday objects. I went out the next day and bought my first: Soundwave and Buzzsaw. With that seed, I have become a lifelong fan and my collection now numbers in the thousands.
You'd have thought that being a Transformer fan for more than 25 years, and having the name Schiber, the internet handle of SCHIBERTRON would have been obvious.
For some reason, it wasn't.

I was 9 years old back in 1984 when the Transformers toys and cartoon arrived in the United States.

One of my fondest memories is going over to my friend's house to play with his Megatron and Optimus Prime toys. I did not have either of these two toys. To my 9 year old mindset, they were the most awesome and radical Transformers.

Another memory is for Christmas I got some Transformers (Soundwave and RamJet). I really did not want to go to sleep that night for fear that when I woke up I would find out it was all a dream. But to my relief, Soundwave and RamJet were still in my bedroom.

And of course, I remember coming home from school, always eagerly anticipating watching the latest exciting episode of the Transformers cartoon.

And at 36 years of age, I still love the G1 cartoon and the toys!

My favorite transformers memory must have been when I was about 9 or 10 when I got the G2 Optimus Prime with the voice-box trailer for Christmas one year. It was one of my favorite toys for years to come, I played with that voice box so much that the speaker got all distorted. I only wish I knew what happened to that toy. It vanished, along with many of my toys when I was in my mid teens.

My favorite memory is watching Transformers The Movie (1986) at a run down theater several towns away with my dad. I was just over 6 years old, and I had to beg my parents to take me because our local theater didn't have it. It was a nice treat because my dad was in the military and gone quite a bit, so it was a rare occasion that I got to spend one to one time with him.

I remember the theater being tiny (only showing 1 or 2 movies)and a little run down, but being REAAALLYY excited as we pulled in and I saw the theater marquee with "Transformers The Movie" posted on it.

Man, was I upset when Optimus died...
