Autobots, roll out!
Transformers started off as a comic series in the 1980s before evolving into animated television series that depicts a war amongst giant alien robots that can transform into vehicles and other objects. Set against the outerworld Cybertron and Earth, it centres on factions of the Autobots and the Decepticons in an endless struggle for dominance or eventual peace.
Since the first Transformers was adapted onto the big screen in 2007, its cinematography and special effects have captivated audiences from around the world – both adults and children alike. Now, Malaysians will have the chance to relive the Transformers experience live!
Organised by Hasbro Toy (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd, the robot-aliens will be making an appearance in 1 Utama during the next school holidays:
- Date: 25th May – 5th June 2016
- Time: 10am – 10pm
- Venue: Ground Floor, Centre Court (Old Wing), 1 Utama Shopping Centre
As an added bonus, the exclusive Chevrolet Camaro that made its film debut as Bumblebee will also be on display at the event on 26th May, 3pm to 6pm. Only 5 of these cars are known to exist in the country, making the car’s display in 1 Utama a rare opportunity.
Besides meeting their heroes and the opportunity to purchase exclusive Transformers merchandise, children of all ages can look forward to a host of exciting activities at the roadshow to keep themselves well occupied during the holidays.
Fastest Fingers Challenge
Children aged 8-12 years old can participate with a minimum purchase of RM120 in 2 receipts. The challenge will require them to assemble a complete Transformers combiner figure in the fastest time possible. The winner of each session of the challenge, which takes place over the weekends during the roadshow period, will take home a Generations Combiner Leader figure worth RM249.90.
Dynamic 5 Challenge
With a minimum purchase of RM80 in 2 receipts, children aged 5 to 12 will have the chance to bring out their inner Transformer character in the “Dynamic 5 Challenge”. Designed to promote teamwork and leadership, this activity is centred around Transformers characters Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Grimlock, and Strongarm. Everyone emerges a winner in this activity as participants will receive a Transformers gift upon completion.
They will also have the opportunity to have their photo taken with a live-sized 10-feet Bumblebee and Optimus Prime statues in front of a cinematic Transformers visual background.
Adult fans are also not excluded from the roadshow as there will be a special display consisting of collectors’ and limited edition figure over the course of the roadshow period.
On top of that, One Card members who arrive at the scene early can have their children participate in these activities and contests without a minimum purchase. However, these are limited to 50 children per day on a first come first serve basis.
The iconic Transformers is an action-packed fictional movie and animation series, featuring robot aliens armed with advanced weaponry and combat skills. The relationship between these robots and humans make up much of the essence of the Transformers story.
