I guess you could say technically, since it carries the name TransFormers, has Optimus and crew...that liking it would make you a hardcore fan, etc. This also is not true, I don't think you can truly be a "True" fan other than to say you like TFs period. However, that can backfire in your face too, so it's best to just go with what you like. Screw the "majority". Plus, there's too many incarnations to link yourself to.


The fudge?

There is no "real" or "true" fans. There are Transformer fans, and there are non-transformer fans. Simple.

I'm sure everyone on these forums, and the various other TF message boards around the world, can list something about Transformers that they haven't liked. Something NOT movie related.

I for one could probably list a dozen. But does that make me not a "true real Transformer" fan?

If it doesn't ... then I don't know what i'm going to do with my 700+ figure collection or my near complete Marvel UK comic collection, or the G1, BW, and original movie boxsets, or all my kitbashed figures. :?
And no i'm not accepting offers so shut the fudge up and don't even bother asking ya damn vultures!

I'd like to see a few surprises. I love spoilers, but a few suprises (like a Meg Earth Alt Form) would be awesome.

I'm sure I'll feel like a kid at the theater the first time we see some real robot fighting.

Well you are CLEARLY NOT a real transformer fan if you say that!
My collection is at least five times the size of yours, therefore i'm a much bigger and better fan then you. Period.





ah, the joy of sarcasme :lol:

150? Who died and left you so much at the age of 14? Heck, I didn't reach 150 until is was 20, most of which I bought myself.

About 30 of them are mini-cons. Amazing amount for 3 years, huh? 8)

No, not really. I completed Armada, Energon, Cybertron, Alternators, 10th Anniversary Beast Wars, a good chunk of RID in 3 years. :P

Have they released all of that in only three years? Time has surely dragged for me.

I've never actually counted but I estimate around 800.

All BW and BM except for about half a dozen figures.
All RiD
Majority of Armada/Energon/Cybertron (skipped some repaints)
More Japanese stuff than I can poke a stick at. (Including all TCS, BT's and BT*, none of that KISS ****)
All Machine Wars
And a good chunk of G1 and G2. Including nice and near complete Wheeljack, Sunstreaker, Mirage and Omega Supreme from my days as a kid.

Plus a large box of Marvel UK comics from about issue 75 onwards with some holes and a near complete run of Marvel US plus a complete collection of DW books which i'm planning to offload.

SO yeah ... i'm not much of a fan.

You all are wrong. The measure of a true fan is counted by how many transformers you bought when they where originally released. And only G1 counts. (at this point we can probally rule out anyone who is....say...around 14 years old?) And only if they are still MIB. And only if you are retarded enough to think that the size of your collection, or your taste in Transformer movies has any bearing what-so-ever on your level of "true fan".
