Greetings fellow seibertronians!

Long time transformers fan here, newly registered user. I used to come here way back in the day to play the simulation game but never pooked at the boards until I recently rediscovered my love for all things transformers!

Here is my transformers story:
I was first introduced to transformers when I was 5. My uncles passed down some of their toys and I eas hooked. They were mostly small bots that I no longer own or can even remember the names of. The only ones I remember are the grasshopper insecticon and the McDonald's cheeseburger who i still own (cheeseburgertron is what I call him).

For my 6th birthday I got bw terrersaur and rattrap. Then for christmas I got ultra optimus primal. My brothers weren't into transformers like I was until I had quite the collection of bw toys. Eventually between the 3 of us we had a massive collection by a kid's standards.

Once beast machines started my brothers fell off but I continued collecting although at that point my main interested shifted to dbz and wrestling toys. I still bought bots all the way into energon. At that point I was 14-15 and my interest vastly changed lol.

Anyways, at that point I stopped buying toys altogether; although I did watch the movies and thought they were great (probably my 2nd favorite movies behind star wars).

Then, earlier this year I watched dotm and I had the sudden urge to buy a transformer. Idk why because the only transformers I owned at that point were transmetal optimus, armada wheeljack, armada thundercracker, armarda demolisher,and energon starscream.

I went to walmart and saw tr alpha trion. In fact he was the only one they had other than some of the smaller rid toys. Alpha trion reignited my love for transformers and since that time.only a few months ago I have bought quite a few transformers. Safe to say im hooked once again.

From tr I have picked up alpha t, megs, twinferno, skullcrusher, mindwipe, hardhead, and astro train. Other instore purchases include rid windblade, tlk voyaget optimus and barricade.

I got aoe slog, sharkticon megatron, bm dinotron, and bm triceradon from transformerland for a decent price

However, the best deals have come from flee markets. I found:
Dotm voyager sentinel: $2
Transmetal 2 prowl: $1.50
Transmetal 2 dinobot: $1.50
Dotm deluxe bee: $2
G1 broadside: $2

I also bought a few of the mars converters with the intent of customizing. I used to make custom dbz toys so not that much of a stretch and for $10 you get a decent toy.

Anyways, sorry for the long post but I'm.just so excited to finally rediscover my first passion as a toy collector. Also I have been putting beast wars and armada on for my soon to be 2 yr old son to watch. He already plays with the McDonald's toys and I plan to buy him at least one rescue bot for his bday. Suggestions for his first "real" transformer are welcome and appreciated!

Welcome to Seibertron! Nice to meetcha. Thought you meant a real cheese burger and then it dawned on me. Eat the food, collect the toy - not the other way round haha.

I like wrestling toys myself, I have a collection going.

Lol cheeseburgertron is still cool to this day.

My wrestling collection consisted of mostly the toybiz wcw toys. That nitro ring was probably my favorite toy back then, the one with the soft center and sound effects with the rafters and walkway. Sadly, I gave all my wrestling toys to my cousin when he came over because he kept asking me if he could have stuff and those were the only thing I was willing to let go at the time.

Also, how to I get stats under my name? Went to cp but didn't see anything.

That's a bummer. I am a newer fan so I only have a handful of mattel figures. TF's usually come first of course.

Got any favorite wrestlers? Undertaker is my all time favorite. I also like Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.

Honestly the benoit incident is what killed wrestling for me. He was my favorite :( Undertaker was always cool even in his biker days. Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, legend killer Randy Orton, Foley, the Rock, Brock Lesnar, Eddie Guerrero, Sting, and Triple H were also favorites. And who could forget Eric Bischoffs nephew Eugene and screaming Norman Smiley??!

Trish Stratus is still the GOAT diva

Edit: how did I forget Macho Man??? He was my favorite when I first started watching but he retired soon after

Sorry to hear that man. He was before I started watching.

Gotta agree with you on Macho and The Rock. HHH is awesome too.

He was an artist in his craft for sure. I haven't been able to watch his dvd since though. Lots of great matches especially the triple threat from wrestlemanie 20. He was slated to win the new ecw belt the week the incident happened. So sad. He wasn't the greatest talker but he had the moves. The crossface, the triple german suplexes, the diving headbutt, the sharpshooter given to him by the great Brett Hart.

A HUGE part of my childhood died when the details came out.

I knowits a touchy subject but that match between him Hhh and Shawn Michaels is legendary. The man had so many great matches but hate what he did. A huge part of my chilhood died that day.

High everybody!
I have constantly been lurking the boards on this site ever since i started collecting transformers. This would be about the time Combiner Wars just started. Grabbing the whole first wave with generations Trailbreaker. The articulation of the new line blew my mind. So I went on to collect as much of the g1 characters for a CHUG collection. I hope to be able to put my collection up in the collection showcase area as soon as I can.
Way back as a kid I loved watching the cartoons and the first few transformers I got where from my Dad a japanese Overdrive who I thought was Sideswipe for years til my late teens and from my Grandpa : G1 Optimus Prime, PowerMaster Optimus Prime and my favourite character as a kid Jazz (It broke my heart that he was an Action Master). The next few years I got Star Saber, Predaking set and Dai Atlas set with his two buddies and three mini cons.
I have previously collected the GIJoe vs Cobra Lines and the Anniversary GIJoe line. Completing the Former and having around 90 percent of the latter before I stopped. Also delving on Marvel Legends, Sota Toys Street Fighter and Final Fantasy 7 figures.
On the more recent I have gone crazy with two more collections the transformers masterpiece line (concentrating on post MP10 products)and Diaclone Reboot.

Hi everybot. I'm new here. I grew up loving Transformers since I was a little kid...now I'm 30 omg. I recently started collecting Transformers stuff again. When I was a kid I had several from Beast Wars. Now I have some newer ones including mini big-head Starscream and Bumblebee, Titans Return Hot Rod, Autobots Unite Wal-Mart exclusive Hot Rod, and The Last Knight Premier Edition Leader Class Optimus Prime. I have a G1 Starscream t-shirt on the way, I own every single movie including the original 20th Anniversary Edition, and I have the game TF Devestation on my PS4. I have my eyes set now on the new Toys Alliance Megatron coming in December and I drool over having the Hasbro Masterpiece Starscream one of these days. I also play TF Earth Wars.my username is Starscream and I have a Decepticon Alliance called Death Seekers, in case anyone is interested. I am a big RPer. Been RPing since 2001...so the forum RP here seems appealing but I need to read a lot more. I read several of the new apps. :) I'm happy to be here ^^.

Hello everyone, I'm a long-time lurker and a first-time poster! I've loved the news, forums, and galleries here for years, and can't wait to join the discussion.
I have a growing CHUG collection and possibly some customs in the future.
Looking forward to talking about the hobby with other fans! :D
