SS2- I can totally back up what Springer and Civ are saying. IIRC, my first few posts here resulted in pretty much all out war with the Mods and locals over something that I posted and didn't think through before hitting the "Post" Button. Most "newbies" go through that, especially if this is your first forum experience, as it was mine. However, I would like to think that whomever you pissed off through posting also has the human decency to forgive, forget, and give another chance, as the mods did to and for me. I think that once you get to know the distinct personalities here, you will feel more comfortable and be able to speak your mind. Also, on a personal note, I like to think of myself as "Newbie Defender of the Universe" so if you have a question about something and are unsure as to whether to post or not, shoot me a PM. I extend that offer to all Noobs. I might not be able to answer your question, but I will find someone who can. Forum Posting is the right of all Sentient Noobs.

The reason why I am here.. must be the free nachos at the unexistant table here in the forums. Seriously, back in '05 I wanted to do research and what toys I broke as a kid and try to learn as much as I could about the engineering behind the toys. I love how complex they are, and how good they are for me when my arthritic hands give me problems when I am forced to sit still (in a classroom, etc.). I have always idolized the ideals of both factions - there are characters who are psychologically stimulating! Like Gears! Who doesn't love that little, mean and ornery **ck!? I love the battle philosophies of Sixshot, who respects the defeated foes whereas most of the 'Cons don't. I love heroes who have few blemishes, and are self sacrificing in the line of duty on both sides. I remember what really drew me to Transformers was watching the Five Faces of Darkness mini series, and watching how Rodimus wanted to learn from the past. Then showing how Blitzwing had so much honor that wasn't shown thoroughly in the TF movie and whatnot. I liked how Springer seemed to whip everyone into shape along with Kup too. Wheelie even had some daring and blasted a Sweep out of the sky on Jupiter and nicked Galvatron. Long story short, I just love the stories for the most part - and hope when I have kids, they can learn from so many of the stories.

I found my way here from the IDW forums! I like the nature of the community here--fewer angry, angry TF fans, which I see on so many other boards, and more incomprehensible threads about UK topics. Also, the reviews of comics and the G1 cartoon are pretty fun to read.

Nice thing about the fandom as a whole maturing is that occasionally people dust each other off, apologise, and realise that very little is worth taking too seriously.

I think that was kinda the point I was trying to make, although without making myself look bad. Thanks a lot.

I'm here because I remembered this place existed, lurked a bit and recognized a solid dozen+ names, and got all nostalgic.

Why I was here the first time? I'm pretty sure I just kind of tripped onto the board, and never bothered getting up...

I came for the toy reviews to start with. Then after lurking about I decided I wanted to review Cybertron Unicron, which was my first post..me saying I would review it. Funny thing is I never got it done, I was for some reason thinking that with a newborn baby in the house I could have long periods of time to myself..funny huh?

Then I needed to ask a question about Korean releases and once I posted in the toy forum I was hooked. I just stuck around for the smart asses and all the lovable people here that never seem to fail to amuse me in some way or another.

Youtube, wiki and google. These are the only other sites I visit. Some of the posters here are genuinely funny -- much more enjoyable to read than an unfunny "comedy" site or some loser's "hilarious" blog.

See, if the Nazi's placed more importance on making porn no wonder they were the runners up in the war. You won't find any footage of Winston Churchill dressed as a plumber giving a bored housewife a good seeing to.
