Anybody Ever Been Dumped b.c of Transformers?


Recommended Posts

A big problem I notice with girls I've dated (and I'm sure it can go the other way for guys, not meaning to stereotype) is that they tend to place the blame for previous breakups on concrete things rather than ideas.


For example, how many of you have heard a girl complain about being ignored for video games?  Internet?  Sports, work, hangin' with the boys, etc?  It's always the ACTIVITY that gets the blame, as though anyone who practices that activity in her mind does it to excess.  The real problem, though, is downright INCONSIDERATE behavior - the little part at the front about being ignored.


Anyone who thinks your Transformers are a reason to break up is being petty and irrational.  Pay your bills, reserve enough time and money to take your partner/family out and make them feel special here and there, and be responsible - if you do all these things, then no person has the right to criticize your interest.

I'm plenty old enough to understand it chief and yes I know thats what they enjoy buying, kind of the whole point of my response, maybe you should try reading the entire thing instead of looking for something to gripe about to make yourself feel important.


I stand corrected:  Your faulty logic of comparing women's desires to buy "age appropriate" things versus grown men collecting children's toys (my previous post proves I read the entire thread, chief) shows that you lack analytical and/or social (i.e., don't understand the opposite sex) skills.  Read your post again and ask yourself who's the one who came across as griping.


Don't worry, with luck you'll have a chance to kiss a real-live girl someday.




And I suppose making personal attacks on people you BARELY know because of a discussion about children's toys make you any more "mature"? How about making broad generalizations that collectors will never have any girl/boyfriends? Talk about hypocrisy :roll


On topic, I envy you guys who have girlfriends who support your collections. I'm the only person among my circle of friends (of both genders of course) who actually have an extensive Transformers, let alone toy collection, making the chances of a girl who'll be interested in them practically nil. :tfsad


I don't really mind if a girl have zero interest in my hobby, but it would just be so cool. :thumb

Ok, one last attempt here before we will lock this one down. Stay on topic and keep it free of flaming and/or insulting or warnings will be issued to all participating parties. This topic is for a Transfan in need of help. It's not for ego flexing. Last chance...

My Ex. knows that I was into TF's, but I just really got into them last summer, and that was after we broke up.  She was cool with it, though.  Then again, she was a drama queen.  :redface

Having a "your thing" also allows for a relationship to grow and be more supportive, because once you've established that you have an interest, your partner should also do the same (i.e. "her thing").  It gives both of you something to define yourself still as an individual, because a relationship where you're joined at the hip and do everything together is doomed for failure.


The other important thing is supporting and encouraging your partner to enjoy their own preferred activities, while at the same time expecting that same support and encouragement from them.

I haven't as of yet found a girlfriend in this lifetime however if i do I hope it's in the toy asle at Walmart or in Toys r Us. I'm a toy's R Us kid and nothing anybody does or says to convince me otherwise will make a lick of a difference any which way. :clap


Though I've been heavy into Transformers collecting since the start of Armada, I have been working to moderate my spending on them. When Cybertron hits I've already considered only buying Deluxes, and Basics because a paycheque can only go so far when it comes to expenditures such as rent, vehicle loan payments, phone/dsl and others. As far as my collection goes, having them all on display looks cluttered and uneven and the dust they collect is a bugger, especially in a basement. I've already cleaned up most of them however still display my MP OP, Energon Unicron, and a few others. Everything looks altogether cleaner, and more organized in my opinion. :thumb


Also in terms of a collection, the bulk of it is Armada, and Energon so I really can't think of them as anything other than childrens toys because that's what they are. I onbsess very little about Transformers,and I'm no rabid completest so I can't see it interfering with a relationship all that much.  Uh, huh. Famous last words. :lol

[RANT ;) ]You know what? Screw people who don't understand Transformers collecting. We can do what we want. If you're doing well enough to have some money left over after budget, you should be able to spend it on what makes you happy. Only self serving people would get pissed off about someone buying toys. Teh lame.[/RANT]

    • Studio Series Age of Extinction Galvatron Voyager figure.  Not perfect but so much better than the old 2014 shellformer!   
    • Look, I agree with you. The problem is not that he is buying stolen material/merchandise, which it is a problem, he knowingly engages in, it is that he keeps doing it, and that people keep viewing his content, knowing full well that they are watching stolen figures being represented to them.
    • Thnaks to TFND group who have posted a look at the last Transformers Wreck’n Rule release, G2 Leadfoot and Masterdominus. This completes the special exclusive Wreckers Hammer that a part of was included in each of the 5 releases. Read on to see the completed hammer now these sets are finally shipping out.

    • He definitely has an early prototype. But he just keeps going on as if this is 100% what we're going to get. How does he know? It's a factory test shot that was smuggled out of the factory before it was finished or had all of its accessories. It wouldn't be the first time he showed off things that were wrong. Wasn't Hubcap supposed to come with the small round silver cannon piece from Brunt? I mean, that's what his had right? Several of his were also missing stuff outright. So who is he trying to fool? We all know these are "stolen" copies. Yeah he might have purchased them which to him makes them legit but they were stolen nonetheless. Therefore you do did not get it legitimately. Just ask any Pawn show owner who purchased items they didn't know were stolen. I'm not trying to argue this point though, just that nothing about his copy means that it's what we should expect at retail. I think that the colors will be more uniform at retail. Or at least, from one piece to the other as seen on the roof that he pointed out. I also think that maybe they ran or assembled pieces from both tooling for this and that's why there's the two tabs on top of the van. Those might be pieces from the Ratchet version and were never meant for Ironhide. Also there's no way they can't or won't budget in the yellow stripe. If they managed to sell Earthrise Ironhide at deluxe then they can budget in that yellow stripe for SS86 Ironhide and maybe even another gun. But really though, Earthrise Ironhide himself should be a voyager due to that added roof. Siege Ironhide was large for a deluxe even if it was stretched out like Impactor was but then they put in the roof piece which added another 7 parts at least to the total as well as the additional paint that was required. Man that pelvic flap is a let down though. I will be modding mine to be separate pieces. There's more than enough connection parts to allow for that. I cut off the hood and the bumper piece from my Earthrise Arcee so cutting that skirt plate into three won't be much trouble. Just need a fresh single edged straight razor.
