With a Transformer suit standing at 9-feet tall, it takes roughly a half hour to put on.

“It’s so aw-inspiring because you’re seeing something like watching a movie and now this guy is putting his arm around you and I almost feel sometimes, I feel like these kids feel protected,” Stumpf said. “That suit is a good representation of somebody who’s got your back, you know? A superhero.”
