Yet another exhibition celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Transformers franchise, and this time we're in South Korea
! Check out below more information about the public event, running until October 10th in Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, featuring life sized replicas, artwork and more.
Transformers turns thirty this year, and to celebrate, relevant artifacts and props alike have come to Seoul.
An exhibition at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza features life sized Transformer robot favourites, such as Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, as well as Bumblebee's automobile counterpart. Splattered on the walls are giant pictures of the newest movie in the franchise "Transformers: Age of Extinction," and original art musings.
This showing arrives on the heels of the franchise's fourth movie, directed by Michael Bay. The film features fantastic cinematography, as well as ubiquitous advertising by both American and Chinese companies.
Transformers began as a Japanese toy, and the American company Hasbro picked it up. There are the good guys, the Autobots, and the bad guys, the Decepticons. Even at the toy stage, these two species of the same kingdom were always fighting for glory. These toys have spawned generations of spin-offs, including comic books, animated television shows, board games, and the wildly successful movie franchise that debuted in 2007.
The white walls of the Design Plaza prove fitting for this Transformers exhibit. Between the artwork, the pictures, and everything else on display, so much talent is present. This showcase will be available for public viewing until Oct. 10.
