I was recently contacted regarding an by a casting director in LA looking for Transformers collectors. They were looking for specifically Transformers collectors with “lavish” collections and who own their own home. I chose to pass this opportunity on to everyone and hope to find the biggest and best out there. Long story short, I passed the info on to TFsource in order to reach a broader audience and today they made the public announcement about the casting call.
The show is a new series and will be titled “Design Rescue.” It is of the reality TV vein and will feature a group of professional interior designers improving a displayed collection of Transformers. So essentially, if you have 2000+ plastic figures invading your entire living room, you might be the perfect candidate for this show. The way I put it to my friends was that they are looking to “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” your Transformers display. Personally, I fear that the producers may be underestimating the true volume of toys in some Transformers Collectors’ houses. Any extra interest in the hobby is welcome by me though and I cannot wait to see the finished episode!!!!
