MP Transformers: Not just for weirdo manchildren anymore!

Post by Clay » Sat Dec 05, 2009 12:52 am

My nephew came to play the other day. This just may be the cutest transformer-related picture I've ever taken.

That is cute. This is definitely reminding me of my experience at Botcon '07 with my MP Convoy and a couple five-year-olds.

I'm baby sitting my nephews tonight, and since a third of my TFs aren't particularly well hidden I'm somewhat worried they may take them out of packaging and 'play' with them (When I mean play I mean break, potentially), although it does save from opening them myself.
Destruction is my specialty

Aaahhhh... isn't it lovely to see the next generation catch the bug?

Seriously cute, especially Grimlock!

Awwwwww.

My little six-year old cousin visits my house to play with the transformers than me, I think. He loves to pretend he's killing me with my MP Megatron.

I still have a few Beast machines toys in the box and one or two beast wars in the box. I let my kids play with different toys, but they really have no interest. My son loves Star Wars and my girls don't really care for Transformers. I have a nephew who likes them, so I might give him some Transformers for X-mas.

So cute. :)

Also, I laughed when I noticed that I have the same weights as you (the one sitting in the background behind Prime's trailer).

My three year old nephew is in love with Trypticon. Whenever he comes over to visit, he just has to grab him and get him to 'chase' people (very, very slowly, but he doesn't seem to mind that), catch them and, apparently, eat them.

"Eat you! Eat you!"

Kids are awesome. :)

Ah damn, that picture only served in me wanting MP Grimlock and Prime, hah.

Whenever a kid drops by here I give him Activators Ratchet and Bumblebee to fiddle with. I believe that anything close to the recent complexity of deluxes doesn't warrant a transforming toy for a toddler.

I am looking forward to Grimlock. Being a bigger version of the original might not satisfy those who like complicated designs, but it's a winner in my book.

You gonna send me your address, BTW? Or is PayPal playing its usual trick of not bothering to notify of new payments?

My 3 year old cousin LOVES Transformers.

I got him FAB Sideswipe for his birthday.
No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

Ah, the picture does look cute... if you like kids.

As there are no own children or nephews in my life or any TFs in my home they could play with, do not know if I would do the same.

But even if my collection was in my home, I guess I would not let children touch it as I spent too much time and money to get it.

Might be different when the time comes...

:up: Win!

Yeah... I've let friend's kids play with some of my figs from time to time. Keeps them occupied and looks adorable.

Cute! How old is he? Looks like 3 or 4.

My 2 year old son loves the movie Barricade, 74 Camaro BB, and classics Prowl (all in car mode). Now their paints are pretty much off...............

My two nieces came visiting during thanksgiving. I asked them to pick one the most they want to see so I can show them how to transform. The 10 year old picked ROTF leader Jetfire. The 8 year old picked Primus (she is very curious how a ball can change to robot).

Nah, he's just a little over two years old.

Speaking of movie cars, we figured out that Jazz is the best silver movie car. He can support the weight of a two year old pushing down on him and still be a car that rolls well on carpet. Sideways and Sideswipe cannot do this.
