Benson Yee, 31, holds Grand Maximus, left, at his home in Elizabeth, N.J., Saturday, June 9, 2007. At two feet tall, Grand Maximus is the largest in his collection of Transformers, "robots in disguise" that change into vehicles or other objects. After more than two decades of collecting, Yee has 3,000 pieces in his Transformers collection and is among the many men in their 20s and 30s anticipating the release of the "Transformers" live-action movie July 4.

DFO: OK, I've seen the Big 3 of this summer's trilogies so far this summer: "Shrek," "Spiderman" and "Pirates." I enjoyed them all -- "Spiderman" most of all. I'm a sucker for big screen special effects involving sci-fi, fantasy, comic book characters come to live. I'll see "Transformers" at the Riverstone Cinema.

Question: Will you?
