    Hi there everybody! Robin here with the moment some of you have been waiting for (I know I have), the unboxing of my brand new Transformers Pro - a very special gift from many of you Pinsiders!

    It all started 7 months ago.

    "Ok. Here is what I suggest and you guys let me know what you think. If 325 of us donate just $20 each we can easily send Robin a NIB pin."

    When I first read this I remember going "What the..?" - And as I read all the posts beneath it (Pinsiders posting in, in, in, in) my eyes grew wide. I remember telling my Girlfriend that: "This is crazy, the Pinside are saving up to buy me a NIB Transformers pin".


    The rest is history. I'm not sure at this time what to say. The game is a blast - it's way better than I dreamed it would be! I love you all, Pinside!

    Thanks first and foremost to Coasterguy who initiated this crazy idea. Thanks to all of the Pinside for donating and for being part of the Pinside. Thanks to GAP for supplying the game and making sure it works overseas. Thanks to Ben to arrange shipping. Thanks to my friend Udo who helped me pick up and set up the game (as well as help me discover the rulesheet). Thanks to my girl for putting up with me putting too much time in that hobby website. Thanks to my label, the movie studio, my manager... Oh no, wait, that's another list. Did I forget anyone? Hope not!

    Check out all the photos via the link below!

    Friday is the "launch party" for all Koog gameroom visitors to enjoy this game with me!

    Me starting the very first game!

    Glad everything worked out. Ben is a great guy and I knew that machine was in good hands!!!!! If you ever need another machine shipped over to Netherlands let me know. Next container in November! Big thanks to Coasterguy. He earns all the props for pulling this off!

    I'm super happy for you Robin! You have worked so hard to make this site amazing, and you absolutely deserve it. Every Pinside member who contributed to this effort should give themselves a pat on the back. You did good, people.

    Glad to see you got it. I'm happy I could contribute, even though it wasn't much. Enjoy!
