About Us

At TransMY, the very essence of our name encapsulates the spirit of our community. Let’s dive into the meaning behind TransMY and the purpose that drives us forward.

TransMY – Decoding the Name

The term “TransMY” is a fusion of two components: “trans” and “MY.” Firstly, “trans” represents concepts such as crossing boundaries, venturing beyond, and exploring new frontiers. It signifies the willingness to step outside our comfort zones, embrace change and transformation. Additionally, “trans” is also a nod to the renowned franchise “Transformers,” which has captivated hearts worldwide.

On the other hand, “MY” represents multiple aspects. It encompasses the Malaysian domain addresses, symbolizing our connection to the local context. Moreover, “MY” refers to both the Malaysian people and the sense of individuality, signifying that this community is for each and every one of us. By combining these elements, TransMY is born, representing a vibrant space where transformation meets the Malaysian spirit.

The Birth of TransMY and Its Meaning

TransMY was initially established as the “Malaysian Transformers Fandom Group” and later evolved into “Transformers Fans Malaysia” in 2005, showcasing the dynamism of our community. Our foundation was laid with a clear purpose in mind, aiming to provide a haven for fans to realize their childhood dreams, embrace a recognized hobby, and connect with like-minded individuals.
