"We Live On." - Transformers, 30 Thrilling Years

The Transformers! More than meets the eye!
Autobots wage their battle to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons!
The Transformers! Robots in disguise!
The Transformers! More than meets the eye!
The Transformers!

This is MY Transformers, the one I knew long long time ago (ok so now you roughly know my age hahaha!), that made me sat in front of the tv same time every week, joining them for yet another 30 minutes battle. It is a far cry from what we've been seeing now, never mind the flatten, uninteresting drawing, it still has a special spot in my heart. And yes I still hum the original Transformers song when I see them on tv.

DinoBoy was introduced to Transformers when he was about 3+ years old, he saw them from the cable and as with every one, he fell in love with them instantly. He was over the moon when he knows that he is going to meet his 2 favourite Transformers hero. You can read about it here.

Couple of months later he received his first Transformers toy, his favourite amongst the favourite; Bumble Bee from us. Truth to be told, he was the excuse for ME to get a Transformers toy since I did not have a chance to play with their toys during my time. So I gladly purchase the expensive toy to a 4 year old. You would think that DinoBoy will play it like having a car race with his other toy cars its in the Camaro state or fight the baddies when its in the robot state. Noooo~~~ He would not have ANYTHING like that, every 5mins or so he will bring the toy to me and said "Mummy, please change it for me.". Most of the times I obliged but sometimes I was in the middle of doing something and could not do it for him. He will try to change it or wait patiently for me to do it for him later.

On one fatal day, he tried to change Bumble Bee into Camaro and broke the door (can you feel my heart break into million pieces???) Like every kid, once the toy is broken he do not want to play with it and do not take good care of it, I guess Bumble Bee got mad and lost his head, no pun intended. *sigh*

Over the years his love for Transformers grew, he received some more Transformers toys & stationeries from us and friends, he even want to dress up as Optimus Prime on one of the Halloween party in his school. We are glad that he has learn to take better care of them after the Bumble Bee incident therefore no further "casualties" after Bumble Bee was decommissioned.

We went to Universal Studios Singapore in 2013 and the Transformers The Ride was the highlight of the day, we couldn't have enough of it and went on the second time.

We have also watched all of the Transformers movies, both in the cinema and reruns of the movies on the cable countless of times. We have the Transformers Dark of the Moon DVD, some nights we will prepare snacks like potato chips or popcorn, snuggle up the sofa and have a Transformers movie night at home.

I especially like Transformers: Age of Extinction; even the storyline is a little bit cheesy, because there are Dinobots! I have a soft spot for dinosaurs, hence the name of this blog hehehe~ My heart was pumping adrenaline when the Legendary Warriors appeared on screen, what a great sight for me!

This is one of my favourite scene of the movie, the leader of the two groups together, looking mighty, strong, invincible and magnificent.
