Hi gang. Finally joined the forum... I like to visit the FB page everyday so I think some of you might have seen me there before. I'm Eugene Lee. from Batu Pahat, Johor. I'm currently studying at Institut Pendidikan Guru Kampus Ipoh, in my fourth year. I'm about to start my practicum tomorrow actually. Oh, I major in Teaching English as a Second Language, which is a pretty convenient excuse to sneak Transformers stuff into the classroom. Someone has to tell the kids the difference between a lorry and a truck (there is none, the first is British and the second American, though calling Prime a lorry feels disrespectful.)
I started my collection with the Prime line, collecting only Autobots because of financial reasons, and also because I didn't find the Decepticons (of the show) that interesting, besides Dreadwing. Recently expanded my collection with some AoE toys (the Dinobots and Voyager Evasion Prime). And... that's pretty much it for now. Small collection.
My favorite out of it all is probably the Beast Hunter Voyager Ultra Magnus. I didn't like him at first in the show, because he was a bit of a jerk, but his toy turned me around. I love his shoulderpads, even though they get in the way of articulation a lot... they're a cool design and really gives him a more bulky, menacing look. Personally, I think they're a great modern update of the traditional Ultra Magnus shoulder-stacks from G1, and I can't believe we've never seen him in the live-action movieverse yet. A lot of white trucks running around there though. A lot.
Anyway. It's great to be a part of this family... I don't have that many friends who are into geek stuff, whether it's superheroes (which I also collect) or Transformers, or Star Wars, or Warcraft... So it's awesome to have people to talk shop with. Thanks for having me. Till all are one.
Go away Rodimus.
