Anybody Ever Been Dumped b.c of Transformers?


Recommended Posts

Thanks guys...you're helping a bunch...

And there ARE other reasons, PM me if you feel you MUST know (lol I don't mind nosiness)...

But in seriousness, it prolly was just an excuse...Transformers weren't ALL evil in our relationship:

-GAG alert!-

We even called each other "Sugar-bot" a la Quickstrike and "Soul of Delight" a la Silverbolt (in a light, joking sense of course)

Maybe I'm just taking it too hard cuz she was my first and it lasted so long?

Thanks again, guys

Quite simple, My wife let's me buy Tf's as long as our main priorities are done first(bills,food, clothes, etc) She even hepls me choose sometimes, but she is never trying to throw my hobby in my face. 


If someone loves you or wants to be with you, it must be cause of who you are, not cause of what you have or might give.  Anyone who breaks up a relationship and blame it on toys, has/ must check his or her mind.  Collecting is not a crime as long as it doesn't get too obsesive. 




After such an argument they just STFU and that's it, what i do with my life and my marriage is my business alone.  What you do with your life and your toys is your business and your fiance's.  NO ONE HAS A SAYING ON IT.

I've never been in a serious relationship. But most girls that i talk to, and have told them about my tf's think it is quite unique and cool. Just talking to a girl last night about it, she qouted "thats awesome"

Well, since I am the GF, I have no problems what so ever... he likes the collection, and doesn;t care if I blow money on it.... As long as we have gas money and whatnot (not like we will... He likes collecting videogames )


I think you guys are all finding the wrong girls :P (kidding.... )

I told her I collected them BEFORE I met her (note that I forgot to tell her initially - was only a casual collector then)


exactly. thats what i do. when i meet someone new, we start talking about hobbies.. then the question pops up.. oh what are you hobbies... there's no way to get around it so i just flat out say, i collect toys. and then they do something like  :eek 'omg are ru fawkin serious?'


lol. but thats not till deep in the conversation.. some reciprocate, some dont.. the ones that do are keepers. i have my alts/bts on display so when i bring people in and they see it for themselves they are blown away...'damn tf's come a long way since then' or 'i remember these!!!!' :tflaugh


my gf loves em. so much she stole my shockwave.

Allow me to play Devil's Advocate:  Transformers are children's toys, plain and simple.  If you are older than Hasbro/Takara's target market, you can rationalize your collecting all you want but bottom line is that your hobby involves collecting children's toys.  Furthermore, it's one thing to collect children's toys whose value is based on TRUE nostalgia and not existing playability; however, this is NOT the case for children's toys that have been/are in recent production. 


This is the perception of the overwhelming majority of people:  Are they being narrowminded?  Yes.  Are they wrong?  NO.  There is a difference between the two.  To try to rationalize and justify your habit to get others to "understand", is for the most part, an exercise in futility:  There is no rationalizing the collecting of children's toys by a "mature" person. 


In the end, like any other hobby people engage in, it's an activity purely of out of love and interest.  And that's all that matters.

    • @Joe Velez Just a guess, but the movie being delayed may be why Legacy is being extended. Which, if you look what we've seen from ROTB, it is more or less Generations again.
    • I'm not questioning the Generations moniker. I'm questioning the Legacy moniker. The series after Legacy will be named something else. Legacy is said to just be for this year only and they're going back to another trilogy. So it was the Prime Wars Trilogy with Generations: Combiner Wars, Generations: Titans Return and Generations Power of the Primes. Then it was Generations: War For Cybertron Trilogy with Generations: WFC: Siege, Generations: WFC: Earthrise and Generations WFC: Kingdom. During one of the livestreams or during a Q and A the Hasbro team stated that Generations: Legacy will only be going on for a single year and they haven't named the next trilogy yet. Again, Legacy will not be the name of the toyline for next year. Sure they could have changed their minds or even extended Legacy past the four waves it was supposed to be but the name of "Legacy" won't be continuing after the line is done. Legacy was inserted in between the trilogies due to all of the complaints about not having gotten Tarantulas and Inferno. So instead of shoehorning them into the next trilogy, they created a short run line to get out a few ideas that weren't completely finished or were cut from WFC. Some of the other figures were probably meant for the next Trilogy as well. But we all know Hasbro loves to reissue the same figures for multiple waves and even sublines like Wheeljack and Arcee. They gotta get those peg warmers back out there even though people want a second chance at Sunstreaker and the Battlechargers. So I'm not questioning authority...this time. I'm questioning the leaker and their knowledge of the information regarding the Legacy line as stated by Hasbro themselves. And still, this list just screams that it's fake with those choices. It's so not Hasbro. Just not enough G1. Other than the core class which don't really count, the only G1 figure in that "Legacy" line up was the Junkion and Needlenose. Needlenose has been on their minds for like five years now and they just haven't put him out yet. As for Velocitron wave two, not enough G1. Going by Blurr, the Hot Rod is most likely going to be IDW. Crasher doesn't count as G1 and neither does Shadow Striker. The rest would have to all be G1 characters then. It's just what Hasbro does. Again, I would love to be wrong though. I want all of them. Especially Crasher, Shadow Striker, Armada Megatron and Prime Skyquake. I love getting fembots and Skyquake and Megatron had such good designs. Oh and Tarn just because Hasbro has never done him before.
    • Time got away from me yesterday but "Friday"'s video was Transformers Animated Blitzwing and, funny enough, I feel like the way I feel about this guy is likely to be how my thoughts would fall for Legacy Blitzwing. Like, I am feeling potential parallels, at least for me.
