Transformers Animatronics Invade Africa With Show at Emperors Palace
BaCon - Monday, November 07, 2016


From March to May 2017 Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee and the Rescue Bots will invade the African continent for the first time.

Following a massively successful Latin American tour, visitors can look forward to breath-taking sculptures, made from wrecked cars, on display against the scenery of the legendary planet, Cybertron, that will be brought to life through eye-popping performance technology.

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 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.

Transformers Animatronics was created by Agosin Events, a company with over 20 years of experience in family entertainment, and Universal Exhibition Group Inc., a respected exhibition organiser which has been on the forefront of international entertainment business for the past three decades.

“The exhibition will appeal to fans and connoisseurs of this colossal brand, and to those who are looking for an exceptional eventing experience that is original and aesthetically appealing. The exhibition has been created to meet the highest international standards, and we are confident that South African’s will vibrate with Transformers”, comments Nick Dreyer, EXPO RSA Director.

The exhibition will be hosted from 3 March to 28 May 2017 in the Big Red Shed from 10h00 to 19h00 daily. Tickets are priced at R155 for adults, R100 for children between 5 and 17 years, and R95 for pensioners and students. Children under the age of 5 years enter for free and families of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) pay R440.

More RID 2015 News
The last of three known Team Combiner sets for the Robots in Disguise line has hit brick and mortar retail. Galvatronus, comprised of Cyclonus, Riotgear, Skyjack, Cyberwarp, and Treadshock was spotted at Toys R Us in Fort Wayne, IN by Rookbartley. Robots in Disguise is expected to be ending with the wrap up of the Combiner Force imprint, though there are still a few toys that have yet to reach retail, including two Crash Combiners. Whether any or all of these remaining products ever see distribution in the US is a big question mark right now. Keep reading to see a photo of Galvatronus on shelf!
Amazon has posted a new set of images for the Robots In Disguise: Combiner Force Legion-class Twinferno! This is the second toy of the new character, and it's looking pretty good! We don't have any info on expected availability of this version at the moment, but we do have the product description. Keep reading to see!
The last four episodes of Robots In Disguise: Combiner Force are now titled! Thanks to the website TWCC, we now know the titles - and one description - for the last round of RID. Oddly that one description isn't for the first episode in the list, but the second - but it should hopefully give a look at the direction that the series will be heading in for the home stretch. Keep reading for the details!
Via the McDonald's Happy Meal website, we've got the promo image for the next Happy Meal theme coming to McDonald's locations in the US. Robots in Disguise will be making its third appearance alongside a hamburger and apple chips, featuring character figures of Bumblebee, Optimus, Strongarm, and Grimlock, as well as small masks of each of the characters. As is the typical process, the promotion runs with a My Little Pony option for kids more interested in that than robots. We've copied the Transformers promo image, click through to take a look!
Imagine unleashing the power of multiple Transformers figures at once to create a single awesome Team Combiner super robot figure! Team Combiner multi-figure packs feature Autobot or Decepticon teams from the Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series.
