    I am sorry if this has been already asked. But out of curiosity, I was just wondering how far would you all travel for transformers ? And is it worth the drive?

    You mean to see AOE?

    The IMAX I go to is 135 miles from my town, and basically directly through metro Denver. Took almost 3 hours to get there.

    Worth it, IMO.

    I drove to Toronto (3 hours or so) to get G1 reissue Megatron.

    I'd probably drive as far as London, ON (about an hour and fifteen to hour and a half, depending on traffic) if I *knew* there was something there I wanted but couldn't get in either Kitchener-Waterloo or the Greater Toronto Area. Anything further then that? Eh...probably not.

    Toys? Out of town, but no more than an hour's drive. Doesn't matter the figure, just not worth it.

    Real transformers? I'd build me a spaceship and fly to cybertron myself.

    I would walk 500 miles. And I would walk 500 more.

    That second line was literally my first line of thought...then I realized they meant reality lol...

    Might do 3 hour drive because I live in Idaho, and Boise and Salt Lake City are both about 3 hours away from me...they're the only big cities within reach.

    Drove 4o minutes or so early in the morning to get MP Soundwave several times, only to end up getting him online during one of those 30 seconds he was available.

    Been to a few BotCons on each U.S. coast and I live in the central time zone, so I'd go far but not often.

    I'd go to my computer. I would go to conventions for the experience not to specifically buy things.

    If it's across town....perhaps though I don't drive. My mom's the one who does the driving, she probably would shoot that down.

    I've only driven about 30 miles. It was for a YOTH Optimus. Hell ya it was worth it.
