Motto: "Now that's what I call sensing an attack!"
Weapon: Dark Saber Sword
Because Transformers can be addicting and some of us can never get enough. ;)
That Nighlock is a big bully! He channels mental pain...& turns it into physical pain!

Motto: "When did I get this tattoo?"
Weapon: Thrust Gun
Because we are Transfans, and once a Transfans, always a transfan!

I collect cause it makes me all happy and warm inside, lol. I just love the concept behind the Transformers and the toys are just bad ass! Whoever came up with the world of Transformers was a genius! :CON:
Long live the Decepticons!! I love G1 Starscream!!

Don't tell Starscream, but I'm in love with movieverse Ironhide! ;)

I think I have an OCD of collecting stuff whether it be comics, toys, or other collectibles is that I'm tapping into the primal skill of hunting & gathering. Instead of using my hunting skills to kill a sabertooth tiger for food & clothing to be king of the tribe, I'm hunting down a copy of an out of print hardcover edition of Mark Waid & Mike Wieringo's Fantastic Four or the Takara 2003 reissue of Megatron to be king of geekdom.
