While driving down Victoria road on my way home from work, I noticed a Cybertronian right in front of me at the light!

Sorry, can't say it's mine but I've seen a heap of cars lately with bot/con symbols. Is this all to do with the movie? How many of these people are true TF people & how many are jumping on the band wagon?

This has been happening for several years now, before the movie came out. I wonder how many of them are real Transformer fans and how many just stick TF logos on their car just for the sheer heck of it. At the last school I worked at I had a colleague who drove his son's car to school for a few weeks while his was in service or something, and it had a Decepticon insignia on the bonnet. I asked him if his son was a Transformer fan and he said no. (o_O)

I've actually yet to meet a Transfan who's had a TF logo stenciled onto his/her car. I've had stickers... that's about it.

Autonomous Robotic Lifeforms from the planet Cybertron. But you can call them Autobots for short.

I got a TF themed number plate!

I also have 3 Autobot insignias from when I was over in the Philippines (red, white and black) but cant decide which to use on my car (its a silver Lancer) and where to place it.

Any ideas where? They are a little big for my fuel lid, so am thinking to put it on the back window or on a side/rear panel

Autonomous robotic organisms *nerd.snort*

Or "Super Robot Lifeforms" in Japan. :D *snortsnort*

Same here.

A bloke round the corner used to own a Green Soft-top Jeep and had the Autobot Logo on the bonnet, ala Hound.

Been seeing a lot of Movie style stickers of late, I think Parklea markets must sell them cheap.

Well for those in the Blacktown area, keep your eyes peeled for a terrible driver in a lowered lemon yellow Suburu sportscar (not a WRX) with license plates: BUMBLB.

I mainly warn you because the guy is one of those idiots with the blue tint headlights who cannot stick to driving in a single lane, and is likely to drive you off the road.

In that case he should've customised his number plate as SWERVE. ;p

i'm in Quakers Hill, saw BUMBLB once and concur with his driving ability assessment....

I'm planning on getting a stencil done on my car, the movie autobot logo goes with my metallic black car the most so i'm going for that. my wife's already said yes, just gotta be bothered now..
