Transformers Cybertron Con 2012Written by administrator
Big boys play with big toys, and it doesn't get much bigger than a 22 foot tall, life-sized replica of the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime himself. For those of you who haven't gotten the heads up from our latest issue, Cybertron Con 2012, the first Transformers Convention to hit Southeast Asia, will be in Singapore from March 11-14th, landing on the shores of Resorts World Sentosa.
The biannual event last debuted in Shanghai in 2010, and will feature a retrospective look at the history of the franchise, interactive exhibitions for those who want to get up close and personal with their favorite Bots, panels with the brainiacs behind the series from both Hasbro and Tomy, and more exclusive collectibles and merchandise than you can shake an Allspark at.
Other concurrent events include a display of Singapore's top designers' and hobbyists' takes on the genre, with participants ranging from musicians Jack and Rai, and renown local film director Eric Khoo. Those looking to complete their Cybertonian experience should not miss the full-3D Transformers Ride at Universal Studios Singapore.
Transformers Cybertron Con 2012 will be held at Resorts World Convention Centre from 11th to 14th March. For more info, visit www.cybertroncon.com
