Over the past 7 years I have amassed a good deal of desk junk. No, not papers and notes and things like that. Nothing “work related” per se. No I have probably one of the most elaborate desk set ups in the entire office. If you can’t tell the theme, let me give you a hint “More Than Meets The Eye”.
I’m moving my desk to another building entirely. The other building has an entirely different feel, not so, how should I say this “laid back”. So on Friday I’m bringing in two plastic “bins” to pack up all of my toys. Then they will spend some time int he attic until such time as I either have my own office at home or at work or just someplace to put them back out. There is so much there, my Harley Pins (Which I may take with me), all my Transformers (into the bin with them), and many other things. Here are some more high res photos so you can really see what is going on on my desk.
Andrew “Transformer” Bennett (yeah I actually signed that in my eighth grade yearbook.) If you didn’t know I was a geek by now then you haven’t been paying attention. This past year I went to the Ultimate in Geekdom Conventions. The Official Transformers Collectors Convention in Chicago, IL at the Hyatt Regency.
This year is a special year for Transformers, it marks the 20th anniversary of the line. There are some fantastic things happening in that little shop in Rhode Island. For one thing fans will finally get their ultimate desire. A Masterpiece Optimus Prime. The Masterpiece Optimus Prime is just about the best and most accurately constructed Transformer ever. Optimus comes with his signature plasma rifle, a “Megatron” in gun form, his Energy Ax from season one and the Matrix of Leadership. This year Hasbro is making the Transformers Alternators line which will feature scale model contemporary vehicles with distinctly Generation 1 themes. Already announced have been a Subaru WRX Rally Car (SmokeScreen), a Dodge Viper (Sideswipe), a Jeep Wrangler (Hound) and another Subaru WRX (SilverStreak). If you were ever a Transformers fan or want to tell your children about the greatest series of toys ever, now is the year to get these toys.
