I really liked the Transformers as a child. The idea of stuff turning into robots (pronounced rowbutts) always intrigued me. Of course growing up money was tight so I never actually owned any of the rowbutts in disguise. It's okay because Cy-Kil and Leader-1 were just as groovy if not as impressive as 'ol Optimus here.
Campos fact #6249: My favorite Transformer as a child was the military Jeep Hound.
