Great read. This part kinda hit home:

Wired magazine, in its current Transformers cover story, speculates -- with tongue only partially in cheek -- that because so many young boys growing up in the '80s were either latchkey kids or products of broken homes, the heroic Optimus Prime became their "mech-daddy." "He was our Allfather," writes Scott Brown, "at a time when flesh-and-blood role models were increasingly few and far between."


Not to get all "poor-me" here, but I did go through that as a kid. My mom was a single parent, workin' 12 to 14 hour days to take care of my bro and I. All he and I had were TFs and our Atari, and later Nintendo. But TFs were so much more important because there were not only toys, but the show as well. And Optimus Prime was the be-all end-all of heroes. Duke couldn't touch him, nor He-man or Lion-o, or another. Prime was it. That's probably why he and I are such fans to this day, with that kinda impact how could you not.

Sorry about the rant, just connected with that part of the article. Good read all around.
