I remember watching Transformers when I was little, and playing with the toys at my cousin's house, as we didn't have any ourselves. Last Easter, we rescued my husband's old transformers from his mum's attic. We've given them a good clean, and can't wait until our son is old enough to surprise him with them! - Jenni, Berlin, Germany
When you think of kids toys in the 80s the Transformers have got to be in your top 5. They were so cool my little sisters wanted them. Between my brother and I, we probably have about 50 of these guys. The movie Toy Story made me feel bad for my old Transformer friends, So I went to my parents house, rummaged thru the attic, and gave all my old Transformer toys to my 2 boys. It's an absolute joy watching my boys play with my old toys. - Sean, Avon, IN
