Transformers 30th Anniversary Expo Malaysia 2014 - Review

Greeted by Optimus Prime
Hey yo, fellow Cybertronians,

Between 31 January 2014 to 16 February 2014, history will be made. The biggest Transformers Expo in Asia has finally come to our shores! In conjunction of the brand's 30th Anniversary, this expo is held in the iconic Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands.
For Malaysians, this is probably a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for them to rekindle their childhood memories and getting reacquainted with what they grew up with.
Unlike those in the USA, where conventions such as this, e.g. SDCC and BotCon are held annually, this expo is a one-off event.

There are so much fun and activities held. Visitors can interact with either Bumblebee or Optimus Prime and take photos with them. Visitors will also get the opportunity to take photos with a life-size replica of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, as well as the iconic Camaro Sports Car.

However, the highlight of the Expo has to be the 7 showcases of action figures, which spans across all toylines, such as G1, G2, Beast Wars etc. The showcases, which consist of personal collections of members of TransMY, has proven to be a crowd puller. Some of the highlights of these showcases has to be Generation One (which was where this brand began with), Masterpiece/ Alternators/ Binaltech (which catered high end market), the Exclusives and the Bumblebee corner.
The Action Figures Showcase
All of the figures in the Bumblebee showcase is actually owned by a female TransMYians, all of which consisted of a quarter of her personal collections.
