TransMY was invited to Genting Highlands on the 9th January to witness the soft launch of the Transformers Expo Malaysia 2014 event at the First World Plaza stage, First World, Genting. Our team reached Genting with an 11-member team to witness that historical event.
A bit about the expo – it will be held in association with Hasbro Inc, to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Transformers, one of the biggest brands for pop culture in the world. The event will showcase, of course our prized collection of 1300 pieces Transformers action figures from Generation 1 up till the most recent Transformers Prime series.
TargetExposition will also bring along a life sized Optimus Prime and Bumblebee statues along with other smaller characters from Cybertron!
This event will be a walk down memory lane for those who have been immersed with Transformers during their childhood. The franchise which is know for their shape-shifting robots into vehicles will bring shock and awe to visitors especially with the array of the figures that we are bringing for display there.
Apart from figures, visitors will get to see augmented reality, 3D mapping, and 3D tunnel technology with planet-like décor along with the latest holographic technology, including the screening of the sneak peek and preludes to the new Transformers 4 film. For kids, there will be mascot meet-and-greet sessions, and exclusive merchandise to bring home for mementos!
