Nice to see the tower is still erect.

If the Ivory Tower is the brain of the board, and the Transformers discussion is its heart, then General Discussions is the waste disposal pipe. Or kidney. Or something suitably pulpy and soft, like 4 week old bananas.

Nice to see the tower is still erect.

It's kind of surreal when I think about how small the Transformer's fandom was when I first joined here over 14 years ago. It was near impossible to find anything Transformer related outside of secondhand shops or comic book stores. Eventually, thanks to a lot of us, dedicated fans, a very large resurgence occurred. I remember when there was a handful of Transformer fan websites. Three major ones come to mind. This website, and I can't remember the other, were the two major websites, with Seibertron slowly gaining ground. It's nice to see a lot of famliar names keeping things alive. Great job everyone.

1 month ago myself, Rob, Paul, Spencer, and my new bride Sarah (bazinga11) were standing in a toy shop in las Vegas laughing about absurd after market prices ( seriously, that skorponok with mindwipes head?).
Talking about our holy grail of toys and just enjoying true friendship.

I love this site.

So cool! It's still here. Transfans suddenly popped in my thoughts. Googling transfans and finding the site again after so many years. So cool! Not to mention actually remembering my password :o.

Thu Jan 18, 2001 12:00:am....joined 15 years ago. Before the euro >:( and Bayformers. Not to mention still under thirty :O I feel old.

About the whole tf prices...pfff gotten steep huh? I remember buying a minty sunstreaker for 30 guilders (15 euro's). Now you can tenfold that.
Thanks goodness I still have my collection. :D
I think the other big TF site was thearchive.

I also stlll exist apparently, or rather my account. Has been ages, the major draw of this site was its unrivalled expertise on UK marvel comics.

Or do one big poo in the morning and another one in the afternoon. I bet they weren't even excited by and then subsequently disappointed by Star Wars Prequels. Or have a glass full of spare change near their beds. That they don't have.
