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.

More RID 2015 News
Amazon has posted listings with images for what are most likely the last two Crash Combiner sets! Primelock (a combination of Optimus Prime & Grimlock) and Saberclaw(Saberhorn & Bisk) are listed as being available in April 2018 - which is a date connected with a lot of Transformers listings of late. It's tough to say if these will ever show up at US domestic retail, but keep reading to see the images.
Robots in Disguise the TV show is over - the toyline isn't to be far behind, either - and it looks like as a closing bow, we're to be treated to some reveals of design and art assets from the development of the series. Artist Walter Gatus has posted quite a bit in his personal portfolio, featuring some early designs, and things going all the way through season 2 and the abbreviated "season 3" featuring Starscream. Fans of the show should find this an enjoyable experience to browse through, as there's lots of interesting stuff to be seen. Check it out mirrored below!
We're at the doorstep of a round of brand new toys, but before we get going on that, we have one more gallery to offer from a little farther back. Earlier this year with the Combiner Force refresh of Robots in Disguise came a new assortment of Warrior Class toys, and among them was Blurr - a crossover character from Rescue Bots! It also happens to be a really solid RID figure, if a tiny bit towards the "simple" side. We have 120 photos showing off both modes, transformation, poseability, and the accessory, and there's a race at the finish! Click through to find the complete gallery below!
Ronald McSanta has a little surprise for Transformers fans at McDonald's next month! We say "little" because there is just one Transformers item in what is a special holiday train set that features an array of popular culture properties including Toy Story, Despicable Me, My Little Pony, Hot Wheels and others. The Transformers toy offering is one from the Robots In Disguise series with Bumblebee sticking his head out a car-carrier type train car. See the image below for the full look.
Tonight we have a brand new gallery for you featuring what seems to be the final Warrior Class mold for the Robots in Disguise line, Twinferno. Distribution for this hasn't been great so far in the US, but it looks like it's starting to gain some traction. Sadly, Twinferno itself feels like a bit of a throwback to early RID toys. In my opinion at least, it lacks the improved feel that the Warrior Class molds have been developing for the last 12-18 months. But it's still got an interesting look in both modes, even if it's not super engaging beyond that. We have over 100 photos of it for you to check out, so click through and head to the gallery now!
