"We bitch because a toy is made for children. Think about it. This is who we are. We are the Transfandom."
Years ago, that line was cynically spoken in content that as a fandom, we Transformers fans tend to be a rather unruly and insensitive bunch. But there is one thing we have that most other fandoms do not... We can learn from our mistakes. As a group, we can learn to realize that Generation One was not the end all be all of greatness and that the Movie or Transformers: Animated is not going to destroy the fandom anymore than Beast Machines, Action Masters or the Cybernet Spacecube did. We can learn to accept TRUKK can indeed be MUNKY and he can even have flames too. That both Hasbro and Takara can produce both good and bad toys and that they both do indeed care about thier fans.
We can learn. We just have trouble admitting it!
Years ago, there was an online eMag, one of the first in the fandom called the Matrix. It was a fun and rather well liked production that eventually fell apart due to creative differences. However the heart and the spirit continues to live on in all of us.
We are fans of Transformers. These are our words and our thoughts.
