So, all that stuff I’ve sold. Must have made a fair bit, right? Well, sort of. I’ve spunked it all on Transformers. Mrs Ben will be delighted, right?


In June 2010 my girlfriend and daughter bought me a Transformer for Christmas. Six months later, this is the result.

Was bickering with Mrs Ben about it earlier. She argues they’re “little plastic bits of tat” whereas I remain adamant that they’re “little pieces of art”. And they are. The imagination, the engineering, the feelings they evoke.

Nightmare to dust, though.
