7 Things you do not know about the Transformer’s 30th Anniversary Exhibition

The Transformers have landed in Singapore! Come on down to the Science Centre and see them in the Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition!

Optimus Prime

Join the ranks of Optimus Prime and his Autobots as they battle against the devious Decepticons! Here’s seven things to slake your curiosity, a number of which were inspired from this larger-than-life exhibition.

  1. There are over 400 limited edition Transformers action figures being displayed in the Exhibition. We wonder if they are worth an estimated $40,000 altogether! Imagine owning them all!

  2. Nearly 40 years ago, some of the first Transformers toys were called Microman, which eventually evolved to the creation of Bumblebee and the other transformers that we know and love today!
  3. Zone 4 of the Exhibition features a radical 3D projection mapping theatre, which showcases the awe-inspiring evolution of our greatest hero Optimus Prime! Don’t miss that!
  4. Just like water having different states, Energon, the fuel of Transformers, can be stored in ore, crystal or gaseous forms, as well as raw energy! Wow! Talk about a versatile energy source! Find out more about Energon at the Secret Place in the Exhibition!
  5. While Bumblebee might be one of the smallest and weakest of all the Autobots, he is one of the most well liked Transformers by humans because of his warm hearted and friendly nature. Bumblebee sure doesn’t let his tiny stature conceal his giant heart!

    Here, Bumblebee stands proud and tall as one of our most lovable Autobots!

  6. Think that a T-Rex is scary enough with its razor sharp teeth? Well, that’s nothing compared to Grimlock, the dinosaur Transformer, which is twice as large as an adult T-Rex! Don’t mess with him!!! **shudders**

    Here, humans stand at a measly 6 feet, great for snuggling inside the jaws of Grimlock, who is almost 35 feet tall!
