T is for Transformers

"One shall stand, one shall fall."

The Transformers rocketed into my life with a commercial for the Marvel comics series. Then,  I remember my Mom buying me Blue Streak at our local Sears store and getting a bunch of them for my 12th birthday.

Those Gen 1 robots in disguise were not always the easier to transform and remember spending hours trying to memorize how each figure worked.

My favorite toy was probably Soundwave and my least was probably Megatron.

When I was growing up, I was lucky to see 1 movie a year at the local cinema, and Transformers the (animated) Movie was a movie my Mom refused "to sit through", so I had to wait for it to be on TV before I saw it (we had moved to Indiana which didn't have cable in our area yet).

It was a treat to sit through the Michael Bay's first film and share it with my kids, but I haven't seen the
other two films and really have no desire "to sit through" them.

Funny how life works, eh?
