How did each of you first discover Transformers?? for me it was when i was 6 or 7, i came downstairs and saw my 2 older brothers watching something with some giant yellow robot. it looked cool so i started watching, got into it, and have been ever since. It was Armada and the yellow robot was Hot Shot. whats your story?

Though I can't remember exactly how old I was, I'm going to assume that I was around 7-8 years-old when I began watching Beast Wars on WB on Sunday mornings right after/before War Planets(I can't remember). I remember when it started airing during the weekdays as well and I had my father tape the episodes for me while I was away at school. Good times. :)

But if you're asking when I had first discovered Transformers then it probably had to have been when my grandmother bought my cousin's and I a used G1 Jetfire and Optimus Prime from a garage sale that some people down the road from us were having to entertain us while we were visiting her. I loved Jetfire and Prime equally but I believe that my cousin's lost him somewhere when they were visiting. :cry:

So yeah, long story short, the first series of toys that actually got me into Transformers was Beast Wars. I still remember my first and second official figure's that were mine alone to own, Beast Wars Manterror and Retrax. I lost Manterror a long time ago after he had been viciously chewed up by our family dog while we were away. I was so sad.
