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...

As a somewhat newer fan of the franchise, I was largely ignorant of Transformers until the Bay movies. But it all started when a commercial came on for the 2007 movie and the concept immediately caught my attention like none other. The clip of Starscream transforming in mid-air and flipping on to a bridge made me bound determined to see the movie, and from there everything just sort of snowballed into my current love for the entire franchise. : )

Coming home after school, I would line up the AUTOBOTS one side of the rug, and the DECEPTICONS on the other side. Dispersed in between them were my green army men. It was so AWESOME! I'd go on one side, lay down flat so as to be ground level with them, and take a bunch of rubber bands and try to shoot them down. The TF's didn't go down without a fight of course (especially Superion and the moving Trypticon!), and the green army men faced certain annihilation!

When I was ten (this was around the time of Transformers Armada) I was on a creative problem solving team for a competition called Odyssey of the Mind.
We performed a short playlet wherin the Earth was going to be hit by a meteor and it transformed into a giant robot to kick the meteor away like a soccer ball. One of the kids on our team wore an earth costume which really transformed.
And out space shuttle had an autobot symbol on it and I think we also had a sort of parody of the Transformers Theme song.
That scene won us the Odyssey of the Mind Provincial Finals in BC in 2003 and we went to the World Finals in Iowa later that year.

One of my favorite transformer memories is actually 2... First was the episode 87 only human where a new villan emerges that looks and talks remarkably like Cobra Commander, even though he and starscream share a voice. It was like wow two of my favorite shows at the time combined plus I felt very intelligent as a young child to put two and two together. The second is more somber it was me at 6 years old having to be dragged out of the original cartoon movie because I was hysterical that Optimus died. At the time I wanted no part of Hotrod they killed my hero.

Come to think of it waking up one Christmass morning with Omega Supreme, Metroplex and Trypticon all decaled up out of the boxes and with Omega in base mode it was just so much and they were so big at the time(in size to me I was 5). That one will be hard to beat.

My first and best memory is watching cartoons with my dad when I was 5 back in 1984. We were waiting for "He-Man" to start and all of a sudden, one of those 80's "This show won't be seen for the next few days for a special presentation" bumpers came on. Next thing I knew, "More than meets the Eye" part 1 came on and I was hooked ever since.

My favorite memories of the Transformers are ones of hours spent in the family back garden with both my brothers, recreating the plots of G1 episodes we had watched that afternoon with our own toy figures. Of course, any figurine we didn't have were replaced by some other miscellaneous 80s/90s character that we happened to have. There were some great moments. Not so much when I accidentally broke the leg off my brother's Grimlock, who happened to be his favorite character... but we all make mistakes.

My fondest memory of watching transformers as a kid was when we were introduced to the Dinobots. I loved dinosaurs as a kid and the thought of a transformer that was a dinosaur was awesome. Not to mention that the dinobots could rival the decepticons strongest combiner (Devastator), who by the way is my 2nd favorite character from the franchise. Robot Dinosaurs, every little boys idea of AWESOME!!!!!

My favorite memory is rushing home after school to catch G.I. Joe and Transformers back to back. It was the perfect amalgam of awesome. While G.I. Joe will always hold a special place in my heart, but you can beat giant transformers robots kicking butt. I never had many of the toys as a kid, because we were pretty poor. TV was always free and that's how I got my fix.

My father coming home and giving me a comic book, which happened to be 'based off' my favorite cartoon show...

Which issue? #7, "Warrior School". I was *SHOCKED*, dismayed, in tears(!) to learn that Optimus Prime was beaten by the Decepticons, left as *NOTHING BUT A HEAD*?!?!? -But even so, he had the calm, calculating nature to tell Hound that, in order to save them all; he *HAD TO FIGHT!*....

How was I to know that one of the most traumatizing moments from my youth (next to Prime's 1986 movie death) would be one of my fondest memories?

After several delays in picking a winner for last month's Seibertron.com/Geek To Me "Transformers Headmasters DVD Set" Sweepstakes (thanks to Comic-Con, a flood, and other craziness the end of July spawned), we have finally chosen a winner for this contest. Without further ado, we chose fellow Seibertronian Daddycon who shared the following favorite memory from his childhood which involved Transformers:

Daddycon wrote:My favorite memory would have to be the large Transformer battles my father and I had during the early days of Generation 1 (these replaced the Star Wars battles we used to have before Transformers came out). Most Saturday mornings would involve a big Autobot / Decepticon smackdown with one of us eventually pulling out my large Shogun Warrior (Getter Dragon) to wipe out the other side. This scenario now plays out between me and my 5-year-old son (and my wife) who has inherrited my G1 / G2 collections (along with various pieces from Beast Wars through Animated and the Bayverse). My father still joins both of us extending the fun across three generations. I get to relive my childhood, my father gets to be a kid again, and we pass the fun along to my son. Robots are cool in and of themselves, but the family bonding they have created in my family has been priceless.


This contest was merely about striking a chord with us. To me, Daddycon's memory is the epitome of what a hobby like this should be about. As a father of a 2 year old, I can tell you that there is a simple amazement that happens when you watch your child play with a Transformers toy and discover the joy of turning it back and forth between a robot and a car (thank you Hasbro for Playskool's Rescue Bots Bumblebee). Daddycon's memory also hit home with me because I remember the big battles my Grandma Betty and I used to have when I was a little kid. I would spend hours and hours setting up the battle landscape with Autobots on her side (she thought Optimus Prime was a "beautiful red truck" and liked Blurr because her initials were BLR) and Decepticons on mine. She somehow always "won".

Anyways, Daddycon's memory represents what should be one of the most cherished parts of this hobby as it is shared from generation to generation, something that is truly remarkable of a toy line that started out 27 years ago. Thank you for sharing your memory with us, Daddycon, and thank you to all Seibertron.com members who shared their Transformers related childhood memories with us last month.

Daddycon will be receiving a copy of Shout Factory's Transformers Headmasters DVD set, courtesy of our friends at Chicago RedEye's Geek To Me. Congrats again Daddycon!

Wow. I was so busy yesterday I totally missed this. I am so thrilled to have won the contest and I am touched that my story reached so many of you. It is great when a common bond runs between generations of family members and I feel that same bond with the members on this board. While I may not have been part of the forums as long as many of you, I have been a fan since the first days of G1, and I truly appreciate the common bond we all share here and the brilliant resource that Seibertron has been for me.

Cheers everyone,
