The Autobots and Decepticons have taken over the Arena of Stars in Genting Highlands.
GENERATION One, Robots in Disguise, Armada, Energon, Prime, Animated, Action Masters, Galaxy Force ... name any character from any Transformers series, past or present, and chances are you’d be able to see its toy at the Transformers Expo Malaysia 2014 at the Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands.
“Wow, I used to have that Bumblebee!”; “I played with that Megatron when I was a kid!”; “Oh my god, the complete set of Dinobots!”.... These were some of the comments I overheard while lingering at the veritable treasure trove of nostalgia, toy technology, and childhood memories comprising more than 1,600 toys and figures from every single Transformers line ever released.
That impressive display of toys contributed by members of Transfans Malaysia (Transmy.com) is part of the largest showcase of Transformers ever held in Malaysia. Held in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2014 and the Transformers 30th Celebration (yes, Optimus Prime and gang are 30 years old this year!), it runs until Feb 16.
