Closed Door Design and Animation Sessions
In addition, Cybertron Con will also present rare opportunities for aspiring designers to receive first-hand tips and lessons from TRANSFORMERS design and animation experts such as renowned lead TRANSFORMERS designer Hideaki Yoke; Jose Lopez, Art Director for Hasbro Studios best known for his work on characters and props on the animation series, TRANSFORMERS: Prime; as well as producer Mr. Jeff Kline, responsible for recent animation productions such as TRANSFORMERS: Prime, G.I. Joe: Renegades, Men in Black: The Series, et cetera.

Interested convention attendees are advised to register quickly during the Con due to the limited vacancies.

TRANSFORMERS Re-Imagined
Unique to this year's Cybertron Con is a display of 50 specially customised Optimus Prime and Bumblebee model kits designed by 50 renowned local designers and hobbyists who have put their own spin and design into creating models unlike any the industry has even seen. Amongst the big names included in the display are film director Eric Khoo, fashion designer Daniel Boey, popular local musicians Jack & Rai, as well as acclaimed local illusionist and magician J C Sum. The display has been touted to being one of the 'must-visit' sections of the convention.

KRE-O Augmented Reality Interactive Zone
The latest Augmented Reality (AR) technology will bring the KRE-O TRANSFORMERS to life - and meet the public. Attendees need only to stand in front of a big screen and they will see themselves captured 'live' by a video camera - just like on the big screen at a stadium, et cetera. Stepping into the interactive zone, the KRE-O toy, Bumblebee, would appear, standing beside them. Taking it one step further, Bumblebee will then interact with them - as if they are actually in a 'parallel world.' Apart from 'dancing' with the audience, up on the screen, Bumblebee will even give participants a 'high five' before transforming into a sports car and driving away.

Retrospective Display
To showcase the history of the brand, Hasbro will present an extensive collection of historical TRANSFORMERS items from throughout the brand's 28 year history via a visually stunning exhibit. The exhibit will take fans through the chronological progression of the TRANSFORMERS brand, beginning with the classic 'Generation One' era. As fans proceed through, they will be able to view extensive artwork and information about characters and stories from different eras of the brand from 'Beast Wars' to the most recent entertainment blockbuster movie and the current 'TRANSFORMERS: Prime' series.

Other special events and exhibits will include:
  • A 22-foot tall Optimus Prime character statue, one of the largest TRANSFORMERS statues ever;
  • Three-dimensional action figure dioramas capturing scenes from popular TRANSFORMERS entertainment including the blockbuster movies;
  • National 'Fastest Fingers First' Competition 2012, testing convention goers' skills at transforming toy figures from "robot" to "vehicle" mode and back to 'robot' mode or viz-a-viz.

Tickets for the convention are priced at $12 for day ticket and $68 for VIP 4-day package. To complete the TRANSFORMERS experience, a special 3D2N package - comprising hotel accommodation, a pair of tickets to 2012 Cybertron Con, Universal Studios Singapore, and the Maritime Experiential Museum and Aquarium (MEMA) - has also been rolled out. Day packages consisting tickets to these three attractions are also available at $77 (Adult), $62 (Child) and $48 (Senior Citizen).

Fans who wish to attend 2012 Cybertron Con are encouraged to reserve their packages and tickets fast through the Resorts World Sentosa website at http://www.rwsentosa.com, ticketing booths located at Universal Studios Singapore, RWS Ticketing and Membership Hub and MEMA, via reservation hotline +65 6577 8888, or through authorised travel agents now.

Perfect poster for any Bay`s film (not only `formers). Pretty detailed and kinda dramatic, but... What, the hell, are they doing there? Warming up for Sumo fight?

Motto: "If it's not fun and you can't win, it's not worth doing."
While I am quite excited to try and get 2 of the Convention Movie Primes, I think I'll hold off on the signed version, as Yoke will be there. It will be cheaper to try and get him to sign the toy at a later time during the convention.

The TF:Prime Megatron looks interesting enough to warrant a look-see. As do the tee-shirts. Expensive for those, though, but still... convention exclusive tee-shirts... it'll be like being at a Phish show again!

The luggage is brilliant. Bear with me. Some of the event-goers will likely be traveling from other countries - Thailand for me - and what better thing to do at a con than collecting loot? With this luggage, it's a way for unprepared buyers to stock up on loads and be prepared for the flights home. As to quality... well, we'll see. I doubt I'll get one, but still, I :APPLAUSE: the idea.
