Designser Alex Kubalsky To Show Art At 'Industrial Origami' Event Celebrating Transforming Toy & Prop Designs
RAC - Monday, September 21, 2015


The Jaguarshoes Collective, an art and design group, have announced an event called "Industrial Origami - Art of Transformable Design," and the guest speaker will be Transformers designer Alex Kubalsky! Kubalsky has designed quite a few Deluxe-class Transformers, including possibly the best entries in the Classics and Universe lines: Bumblebee, Mirage, and Hound. You can hear see an exhibit of his work, Transformers and otherwise, at the Shoreditch Station in London, UK, between now and November 1st. Keep reading for some sample images!
As part of London Design Festival and the Shoreditch design triangle 2015, Alexander Kabulsky will be showcasing an all new transformation design, a personal work for JaguarShoes.

Destined to be produced by a toy company later this year the new design will feature as part of Alex Kabulsky’s product showcase and talk during design week, titled ‘Industrial Origami’ at old Shoreditch and subsequently as part of an exhibition at DreamBagsJaguarShoes.

For more than 30 years transformation has been a staple part of the pop cultural landscape in the shape of ‘Transformers’ a toy and movie franchise, born in 1984 which grew from Japanese designed Takara toys, rebranded and distributed in the USA as Transformers.

However, the art of transformation design is an ancient practice, rooted in the well documented paper folding traditions of origami.

Today this highly specialised practice is permeating the design of both purposeful and frivolous objects in society. Since metropolitan living grows increasingly dense within it’s confined spaces, it is an art form that will continue to grow across all mediums.

JaguarShoes Collective believe that this design practice is long overdue some well deserved admiration and celebration. Therefore we will be hosting a talk and Q&A on 24th September alongside an exhibition of work by prop and toy designer Alexander Kubalsky.

An accomplished product designer Alex specialises in the art of Transformable design and is commissioned by numerous commercial clients inc. Hasbro, Warner Films and many other multinational toy and film franchises.

For anyone with a love of Transforming, a desire to introduce this art to their practice or to pursue and career designing transforming objects… we recommend that you book a ticket in advance.

Newsarama has published the full preview for the final issue of the First Strike miniseries. While this issue hits shops next Wednesday, we will still be getting a handful of tie-in titles coming out for a bit - and of course there's always the post-crossover-aftermath-restructuring to look forward to! War for the Core! Deep within Cybertron, the ultimate weapon to kill all Transformers is about to be activated! Meanwhile, Elita One plans to stop the weapon—by killing every human on Cybertron! Either way, looks like some species on Cybertron is going down unless Optimus Prime and Scarlett can save the day… Keep reading to see the preview pages!
You probably never thought you wanted a combiner version of Revenge of The Fallen Jetfire. But you would be wrong, and talented customizer @ChromeTyranno is here to demonstrate that! Starting with a Combiner Wars Cyclonus and incorporating parts from the Uranos unofficial Superion to help remodel it as a Blackbird, the end result is an impressively on-target looking interpretation of one of the few positively-remembered elements of ROTF - and it even has a movie Optimus torso mode! We have several exclusive photos of this project to share, click through to get a good look now!
Just to be entirely clear, as of the time of writing they are not in stock for purchase. But, Walgreens has added a listing page to their website for the exclusive two pack of Cloudraker and Wingspan, bringing the completion of Hasbro's Clone offerings that much closer. Canada has already seen these hit retail in some capacity, in their case via EB Games - though still with the Walgreens sticker on the packaging. This move puts the Clones on track to start hitting around the same time Brainstorm did last year. Keep reading for a link to the page!


With Optimus Prime trapped on Cybertron, the Autobots track down their missing friend, Jazz—and find themselves under fire from humans armed with Cybertronian weapons! Expected in shops Wednesday, November 1, 2017. Keep reading to see the preview!
