So yeah I've been away from here for several years now until I just randomly decided to stick my head back in.

Wow a lot has changed here, glad to see the community is still large and talking here. I see Cliffjumper is still posting but gotta ask about a few other guys I used to chat with on here and posted a lot back in the day, Brendocon, StoneCold Skywarp, Dr Spengler, Bombshell (the originator of the term "home slice" if I recall ), Amarant Odinson. Well thats a few of the top of my head.

BTW what happened to the old TFArchive Wrestling Federation? That was a right laugh back in the day. sheesh, feel so old lol

How is everyone else? To all the new people I say "hello!!!"

Spengs is still around. The AWF is in the archives.

Bombshell died of terminal irony failure. Brend, IIRC, voiced Jetfire in ROTF.

E had a crack at restarting it a few times IIRC. Real life catches up with people.

The franchise is ticking over remarkably considering that the first generation of fans is now into its 30s, though.

The missing posters are all helping to destroy the Hive's machinery on Nebulos.

It's in better shape than I am.

I am from the old days too but only started actually posting here relatively recently. Can't say exactly why. Maybe a long-undiagnosed mental disorder cleared up. Either way, hello.

Transformers is everywhere these days. My favourite example of this is the story Bob Budiansky told about opening a door to a trick-or-treater dressed as Movie Bumblebee and him trying to convince the child's parent that he had, in fact, made up Bumblebee one weekend. That's probably the sort of thing that Alan Moore means when he talks about magic.

"Honestly, I created Bumblebee, I'm not just a scary old man who looks like the bloke from Ghostbusters 2. Why don't you come down into my basement and I'll show you the original paperwork?...


Oh, he ran off for some reason..."

Oddly enough, my mental portrait of Bob was always that of Dan Ackroyd from the first movie.

Viewfind/Transfans Reflector started the Homeslice thing. About the only thing Bombshell did that matters was get banned because mods thought I was an alt ID when I joined.
 


Wake up son of mine. Momma got something to tell you. Change has come; life will have its way.
