View Full Version : How much time do you waste on TFs?

8th February 2008, 11:27 AM
As the title suggests, I was wondering how many hours/day (etc) to you "waste" on Transformers?
My wife drove to our son to school this morning to find a decepticon sticker on her dash. She SMS'ed me to say she is sick of TFs taking over our life.
So how much time do people here spend on the internet; talking to others about; posing; organising; buying; selling; cleaning; mod'ing; kitbashing; reading related material (etc)?

first of all i DONT waste any time with transformers, the time i spent with transformers is like raising a kid, every second i spent with it we grow together. Lately i spent nearly 6 hours a day on transformers , mostly through research and watching episodes (because im still on holidays) , but gave up alot of time playing online games. But i reckon now that i learned alot and that i am managing my finances and time more better (i went to information overload when i first started)

t/f is really consuming, sometimes i cant help just walking into my room and staring at my awesome collection. But it does leave you bored sometimes, so i try to mix things up a bit...

it just sounds to me that your wife is frustrated at the attention you give to t/f and not her :o

during the working week, I would say 8hrs (forums is always opened, cross-checking images) during the day and sometimes a couple of hours before sleep.

during the weekend, maybe 4-5hours in total

yes, my wife also gets the peeved with me for spending too much time on TFs and too much money.

I don't want to talk about it...:(

I dunno, the forum is just part of my online routine, so I don't class that as TF time. Actual figures? Maybe 30mins-an hour a day. Shopping for them? Maybe 2-4 hours a week.

OMG - Hours and hours EVERY day!

wives always get peeved for every second you're not spending time on them. They have HADD - Husband Attention Deficit Disorder. Maybe we should introduce our wives to some of the G1 comics that were done in the way that they perceive their husbands - in black and white. :p ;) :D

...yeah, I'm on the couch tonight.

Plenty. Between checking the board during my work day, to looking at stuff on the net, trying to write fanfic, finish my game, toy hunts on the weekend... yeah there's a lot but luckily(?) no wife to annoy.

Maybe 2 hours a day. Which doesn't bother me - I don't have a wife to answer to, and it beats watching junk on TV like Big Brother.

In these holidays, probably close to 6-7 hours a day. I'm generally up for 18 hours of the day though. When I get back to uni probably closer to 2-3 hours a day.

About 3 hours a day during the week and probably double that on weekends/days off. I too like to just wander into the vault and stare for a while, until I get overwhelmed by choice and back... slowly... away... and lock them up for the night.
