Yep, pretty friggen cool!

 

Transformers! 8) The best cartoon and toys ever!

 

My personal favorite Transformers were the Combaticons. They are five Destructicons which could join together to make one large Transformer named Bruiticus. The 5 individual combaticons were military vehicles restored by Starscream and turned into Transformers in an attempt by Starscream to take control of Destructicons away from Megatron. :green:

So, how many of you looked up at the Transformer profiles on that page and went, "I had that one and that one and that one..."

 

If I hadn't been so wrapped up in playing with my Transformers when I was little, I would have been smart and kept them in the box. I wonder what those toys would be worth today in mint condition.

Oh, come on. :D

 

You can't be serious. Even if someone tried to convinced you, at the wee age of 10 or whatever, that keeping these toys in their boxes would earn you thousands in the long run, there is no way you would have resisted playing with them. When I got my hands on new transformers, I couldn't even endure the car ride home without tearing the packaging apart.

 

Anyway, yeah, Transformers was huge for me as well. Starscream is just badass!

Believe it or not, I also bought a few of the new Beast War series transformers when they were first unveiled. You know, to reminisce.

 

This was just a few years ago. Some of them, like Optimus Primal, were pretty cool but it just wasn't the same. Optimus just isn't Optimus if he isn't a semi.

 

Animals?! What were they thinking?! I tolerated the Dinosaur ones but this is pushing it.

 

They might as well have vegetable transformers. Or garden tools.

UGH. I was so glad when that prick got his his ass fried by Galvatron in the movie. Now Megatron/Galvatron....thats a bad ass. ;)

 

Anyone else get the Tranformers Season 3 part 2/Season 4 DVD set? I have all of them so far and I'm damn glad too. Put them in on Saturday mornings and I can relive my youth :D (that along with the new GI-JOE Season 1 set that was just released).

They did. You don't remember the Gardenbots (led by the sass-talking Hoe) versus the Weedcons?

 

And all is revealed. That site says he was called Skyfire in the cartoons and Jetfire in the comics (and, I assume, in the toy line). He was identical to a Super Veritech.

The game is just gonna rock! I'm pissed its just coming out on PS2.

 

Theres a new cartoon in the works. It takes place after the retarded ass Armada series and before the original. I read it in Newtype USA.

I've got some Transformers floormats for my car. (bragging)

Beast Wars was a great cartoon. The toys sucked ass.

Oh, you're right. There's no way I could have resisted opening them up. I'm just mad my mom didn't buy me two of each one I had. :D

 

Just call me the Eric Cartman of the LCVG boards.

Anybody want an in the box, pristine condition original Optimus Prime with all accessories, papers and packaging? ;) I have one sitting in the closet right next to my Megatron, Metroplex and Scorponok figures. I'm pretty sure I still have Hot Rod, Cup, a Sharkticon and a Cyclonus sitting around in the closet as well.

 

*rubs fingers together in a Mr. Burns-ish manner*

 

EDIT: That was a rhetorical question by the way. I would never sell Optimus in a million years. :green:

I have Optimus Prime with all the accessories, too.

 

It's a well-played one, fully broken in and smoothly operational. Low miles, full service record (all done by dealer), fresh tyres, brakes, and laser rifle recently filled. It's been lady driven and one of a kind.

 

Any offers? It's arguably in better shape than Romier's, because mine has actually seen some action, instead of rotting away inside a box. :D

Oh this one wasnt mine. My actual Optimus Prime was missing his arm :lmfao: . My wife in her youth got alot of christmas presents from her grandparents and some of those were Transformers figures which she never played much with. Optimus was one of those. She played with it very little and the joints and what not when transforming him still have that brand new like "snap" to them. We keep him the closet. Not played but damn nice looking. ;)

And suddenly, all the members of the LCVG.com forums knew the reason Romier married his wife. :D

 

Going back to what Sam was saying earlier about me not being able to resist opening my Transformers when I was younger, I have to admit how right he is about that. In fact, I'll prove it to you with this little anecdote.

 

Over a year ago, I was out Christmas shopping, and my search for toys eventually lead me to a local Toys R Us. As I'm prone to do in such stores, I stopped off in the action figures aisle to see what they had in the way of Star Wars figures, and to also check out these new Transformers toys I had heard about. While browsing the selection, my eyes came upon a sight I could not believe at first. There, in front of my eyes, were several, brand-new Optimus Prime figures. When I say that, I'm talking about the real Optimus Prime. The one I grew up watching on TV. The one who died at the hands of Megatron. The one who immortalized the phrase, "Autobots, transform and roll out!"

 

Being in a store surrounded my numerous children and their parents I resisted the overwhelming urge to spew forth a string of obsenities (along the lines of, "Holy fucking shit!! It's Optimus Prime!!"). I reached out and grabbed one of the boxes for closer inspection. Keep in mind that the box itself was just like from when I was little, though not exactly the same. You see, these miracles I had discovered were part of a classic series of Transformers toys, which sought to reproduce some of the most famous figures in the history of the Transformers line. I should also mention that this series was exclussive to TRU, which is why you may not have stumbled upon these figures in places like Target or Wal-mart. Just in case you were curious, they also had Ultra Magnus and Hot Rod available, though I didn't buy them.

 

I did however, buy one of those Optimus Primes. I just had to have it. Ever since I was a little boy, I wanted an Optimus Prime figure, but I never had one. I had many of the greated Transformers figures ever made, including the previously mentioned Autobots, all of the Constructicons, several Dinobots, Rodimus Prime, and Galvatron, just to name a few. But I never owned the greatest Transformer ever made, the original Optimus Prime. This figure alone was $40 (:shock:) but I didn't care. This was an investment I was more than willing to make just for the pleasure of having it.

 

So, I purchased the figure, finished my Christmas shopping, rushed home, and the first thing I did was carefully remove Optimus from his box and start playing with him.

 

Some kids never grow up.

I often stop on TRU and shop in the same section just to see what's out. I too came across that Optimus Prime, the one I never was able to get when I was a kid too. Same reaction here in my head I said "holy shit" its the original designed O.P. and it was $40. Well, it being one month to my birthday I dropped about a million hints to my fiance who was with me at the time that the O.P. would be the gift to get me. Well needless to say all the hints flew right by. Always wanted Optimus :( and I missed out on him again just like I was 10 years old again. Can't complain too hard though she did complete my console collection by buying me a PS2!!!!! But you did hit it on the head, I'll never grow up. I just don't see the reason why I shouldn't still want these toys :D
