10 years

Postby omegaprime » Sat Jan 12, 2019 8:46 am

Today is my 10th year on these boards.

The Transformers New Zealand boards is one of the best boards i have ever joined, i can only think of 3 moments when ive seen drama here, compared to other fandoms and boards thats actually rather amazing.

My journey here has been great and alot of fun, My toy collection has exploded over this time period and my knowledge of the transformers universe to boot.

But it hasnt just been all about the toys, from helping learn about what to say and not say, then there is helping me with my grammar, yes it can be better but its much better than it use to be :D

So heres to the future of Transformers New Zealand, be it on the forums or in another form, we have had some close calls.

I look forward to whats to come, this years reveals should be just as fun as previous years.

That’s a stunning collection!

I haven’t been a part of this community as long as others here, but am glad you are part of it. Your coverage of events and reveals is always greatly appreciated

Wow, didn't realise I had joined before you. I think I learned about this place through the old TradeMe forums.

Yes, your grammar has improved dramatically, and it has been great to see :D

2019 should be another good year for us TF fans!

10 years just flies by real quick.
I've been contemplating how much time has gone by in collecting.
I like how your transformer family has grown and displayed too.
Mine are still in boxes collecting dust.
No room at the moment.

That's the best thing about this forum: It's hard to quit once you're here. You may take a hiatus at some point, but we all find our way back too. lol.

Congratulations on your collecting.

There are a few of us that are in or around their 10 years on this board. A lot of special memories from around that time.

We certainly have a great community here! Part of the current revamp of the site is to backup the posts, as there are so many great memories and great people to nerd out with (A) (D)

I'm appreciative of the people I met through here and the great help they have been over the almost 15 years which feels weird coz it don't feel like anything close to 15 years. Losing 2 homes and having to store most of the collection was tough and there are a number of things I have that I wouldn't if it wasn't for the wonderful people here.

10 years on the 3rd of Feb...

Most memorable part is when I won the Lucky Draw Golden Optimus Prime thru TFNZ competition which was sponsored by Hasbro NZ

Only 88 were made worldwide.
