Transformers brought to life
From March to May 2017 Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee and the Rescue Bots will invade the African continent for the first time in Transformers Animatronics at Emperors Palace.

Transformers Animatronics is a unique event based on the popular Hasbro saga that has broken box office records for both movies and television. And now it will head to Emperors Palace with a spectacular display that has been enjoyed by millions of people on tour across the globe. This travelling exhibition of international standards will feature 12 animated Transformers, 9 sculptures scaled between and 2m and 11m made from car parts, and a further 20 statues varying in size. In addition, an impressive arsenal of weapons used by the Transformers characters will also be showcased. Young and old will immerse themselves in the incredible universe of Optimus Prime and his companions, from its origins in the world of comics to the television series and blockbuster movies. Autobots and Decepticons will also feature prominently, accompanied by the latest Dino Bots and famous Rescue Bots, the famed pre-school series that has expanded the Transformers fan base.

So long, Autobots! It's time for action with Starscream™, the power-hungry Decepticon Air Commander who considers himself the leader of the future. Fans of the classic Transformers® robots will relive the excitement of childhood each holiday season as they unbox this Christmas tree ornament.
Just up on iTunes, we have a three-page preview of the Optimus Prime #17 comic book. “The Falling,” Part 3: Onyx Prime sows the seeds of chaos and panic on Cybertron as he reveals dark secrets… but nothing will prepare Optimus Prime and his allies for Onyx’s darkest revelation!
Imaginarium Art reveals their latest edition in the Transformers G1 series to be Wheeljack. The Autobot scientist gets his day in this cartoon accurate edition. The uncolored computer rendering shows us the character's torso complete with his shoulder missile and highly detailed robot mechanics. No word on pricing and release date, yet. Read on to see the Imaginarium Art G1 Wheeljack image below.
It is only a matter of time till the fans step in and do things as we would like to see them. Sorry Robot Chicken, the jokes and potty humor are worth a laugh, but THIS is serious! Thanks to The Lazy Eyebrow Reviewer channel on Youtube in collaboration with OptimusTimelord's Masterpiece ReAnimated channel, we have a glorious look at the original Transformers Season 1 Intro. Re-made as a stop motion animation using actual toys! This is so delicious, you will want to watch the video below, again and again.
It's a statue day, evidently! Having shown off an early stage sample of Galvatron already today, Imaginarium Art has shared a photo on Facebook of a fully painted copy of their upcoming G1 Jazz statue. The post itself notes that there are refinements to be made - gun coloration potentially among them - but the sculpt work and styling for this statue looks fantastic even in its current form.
