    Benson Yee and I were two lucky individuals to be featured on this Canadian Television show: Fanatical.

    I got my DVD copy in the mail today, so I ripped it and uploaded it to youtube.
    I have to apologize to Benson. Between the second and third clip I cutoff Ben mid-sentence. This was done because the DVD had two VOB files which were spliced at that point. When I tried merging them using Vdub, the audio became out of sync so I decided to leave it as is. (Then again, videos on youtube aren't in sync anyway).

    Sorry Ben.

    I'll answer any questions you may have at my closest convenience.
    Until then, good night.

    Cool dude, I just saw that the other day. Congrats!

    Funny thing is, I saw it in the TV listings as I was flipping through and thought, hey wouldnt it be cool if they did one on a TF fan, but then I figured, 'nah, they wouldnt do that'. A couple minutes later, I flipped to that channel and what do you know, they're doing one on a TF fan. Sweet!

    Ah so you were the other guy. That's 1 HUGE ass collection you have there man and you and Ben came across very well :) 

    Were you nervous when being filmed or did it feel weird being shadowed like that?

    I actually had a blast that day. The film crew was not that larget, there was the director, a sound engineer and another individual who helped out.

    The filming began 9AM on a Sunday and finished 2AM Monday morning. You can tell in my interview at certain times that I was literally falling asleep while I was talking. My interview was first held at 1AM. I'm usually more lively :) , but since my wakeup time for a workweek is 4AM, I got two hours of sleep that night! But it was worth it. The crew was great and I had a lot of fun going back to Polytechnic University and hosting the meetup.

    My wife and I were skeptical the whole time thinking Ashton Kutcher would pop out any second and we would be Punk'd :) 

    We took only a handful of pics during the filming, which can be found here:

    Awesome show! I saw that last week when I got home from work and I was like DAAAAAAMN! So many TF's, I knew that display case with the larger robots looked very familiar :)

    thanks...

    Yes, I can't wait for the movie!
    I hope it does well. I'd hate to see the franchise get tarnished by a bad movie.

    Wow!! Great collection and great show. I'm happy both you and Ben are some of the voices for the Transformers Fandom. How old are you? Sorry to ask but you appear pretty young with that Brave Maximus, lol. You are blessed with a great wife!! :thumb

    If you have kids, would you sell off any of your toys to cover the cost?

    If the answer to this is anything other than; "Never!!! :mad " it's probably a lie. :p

    nope.. you saw right. Those are official Argentinian Green cliffjumpers. I gave out 1 MOSC free for every guy that came to the meetup (http://www.tfu.info/1985/Autobot/Carerra/carerra.htm)
