How did you imagine your TF character/toys as a kid

If its about Transformers, the toys, it's fair game.

How did you imagine your TF character/toys as a kid

Postby starry* *night » Sun Nov 13, 2011 9:20 pm

The only Transformer in the house that was mine when I was really young
was a totally broken Starscream
one leg -no arms- no nosecone - no wings
I knew he was a flier even though he had no wings but didn't recognize him as looking like Starscream.

I only got to play with another person using Starscream and another series robot once
(my friend made a lot of see you next fall jokes to Starscream - but I really remember that short silly game)


So what toys did anybody play with most a a kid and how did you play their characters?
Anything stand out that you remember?

The only thing I can think of at the moment is I used to like to build my own environments. Nothing fancy just couch pillows or whatever was available.

I used to watch the commercials and the kids on there would have bases built out of god knows what. I remember saying to myself, "they should sell more Hall Of Justice/Castle GreySkull type of playsets".

Well I used to create Transformers series in my mind, so the characters would be different depending on the series. Seeing as I grew up with the Unicron trilogy, almost all of them ended up with Unicron showing up or Unicron being revived :lol:

You seem to still have a very great imagination for that right?

Any of your ideas you remember and wanted to mention?

A few
1. My Deluxe Optimus Prime (came in The Ultimate battle two pack with G2 Megatron) and another Autobot (I think Energon Offshoot) were the last two Autobots fighting on a planet full of Decepticons

2. Megatron discovers the lost Decepticon warship, The Nemesis, is on Earth, so he goes to find it. Optimus learns of this so he follows. Sideways and Undermine were once Decepticons who now inhabit the ship. The series alternates between the hunt for the Nemesis on Post-apocalyptic Earth and flashbacks from the Autobots trying to take down the Nemesis back in the heat of the war on Cybertron. This one is actually recent and is incomplete.

Characters in this one are:
Modern Post-apocalyptic Earth
Autobots:
Optimus Prime (Cybertron Optimus Prime) Autobot Leader
Hot Shot ( Cybertron Defense Hot Shot) Upgraded Strongarm after being almost killed by Megatron
Red Alert ( Cybertron Defense Red Alert) Upgraded Signal Lancer after being almost killed by Galvatron
Wing Saber (Cybertron Wing Saber) new Autobot, was protoform aboard Autobot Ship The Vector
Override (Cybertron Override) New Autobot, was protoform aboard Autobot Ship The Vector
Bumblebee (Classics Bumblebee) Same as mentioned above
The Vector (Cybertron Vector Prime) Autobot Ship / Computer system
Decepticons:
Megatron (G2 Ultimate Battle Megatron) Decepticon Leader
Barricade ( Movie Mall Security Barricade) Former Crew of The Nemesis
Starscream ( Armada Starscream) Former Crew of The Nemesis
Wreckage (Movie Wreckage) Megatron's second-in-command
Laserbeak (Armada Minicon who's name I don't remember, was Dark Saber repaint of Sonar)
The Blurr (Cybertron Blurr) Autobot Ship stolen by Decepticons

Others:
Sideways (Cybertron Sideways) Aboard Nemesis crashed on Earth. Wants revenge on Autobots and Decepticons
Undermine (Cybertron Undermine) Works for Sideways
Shockwave (Bionicle created by me) Works for sideways

Past Cybertron
Autobots:
Optimus Prime (all some as listed above)
Signal Lancer ( Energon Offshoot) part of Prime's team
Strongarm (Energon Energon Strongarm) Part of Prime's team
Makeshift (Cybertron Sideways) Part of Prime's team

Decepticons:
All are the same as listed above except for:
The Nemesis (Armada Tidal Wave) Decepticon Warship, most powerful warship ever built
