Transformers in dope
I had a geek childhood. Along with my favorite hobby with computer stuff was collecting manga style mecha assembly kits. And of course watching the Transformers animated series on SKY channel.

I remember I must have been about 10 years old when there was some assembled

models like there is in the new Transformers movie.
