Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
The Children's Museum of Indianapolis have update their future events schedule, and our favourite transforming robots are taking over the exhibition space again! In honour of the arrival of animated series Transformers: Robots in Disguise, the Museum is hosting a collection showcasing different characters and their evolution from 1984 to the present day. It also seems to coincide with the currently expected air date of the series in the US - could this give us a more precise estimate? Check out their information below!

TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise™

March 7–July 26, 2015
As Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS franchise celebrates its 30th Anniversary, get ready for a museum exhibit that shows the fun and innovation that has gone into the creation of the iconic robots. This exhibit will showcase the heroic Autobots and villainous Decepticons, including favorites like Bumblebee, Optimus Prime and Grimlock. Since their introduction in 1984, TRANSFORMERS characters have converted from robots to vehicles, jets, dinosaurs, and animals. The excitement and fast-paced action of a brand new animated series, Robots in Disguise from Hasbro Studios will debut in 2015 and the exhibit will feature new characters that will be sure to inspire families to create even more new stories. What are the secrets to creating something that can move and twist and contort itself into an entirely different being? TRANSFORMERS fans of all generations can use their own imaginations and explore the design and engineering that goes into crafting these beloved characters.

Children's Museum of Indianapolis - Transformers: Robots in Disguise Exhibit Introduction

Postby Va'al » Fri Feb 20, 2015 6:18 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We reported a while back on the exhibition held by the Children's Museum of Indianapolis with everyone's favourite transforming robots, opening on 7th March. The museum has actually been in touch with us, and via Hasbro approval, shared images and designs for the event, which we've mirrored below to motivate people to visit what looks to be a really fascinating look at the Transformers franchise in a museum setting!

The exhibit design and social media teams at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, the largest children’s museum in the world, are excited to share these preliminary design sketches for the upcoming exhibit Transformers: Robots in Disguise™. The exhibit opens at The Children’s Museum on March 7, in partnership with Hasbro.

These sketches are used to convey the overall experience of the exhibit in the early stages of development. They help illustrate the relationship between the displayed objects and the hands-on learning activities. You can learn more at http://www.childrensmuseum.org/future-exhibits, or follow the museum on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see the latest behind the scenes moments. (facebook.com/childrensmuseum, Twitter @TCMIndy, Instagram @childrensmuseum, #IndyTransformers.)

Enjoy this sneak peek!

Welcome to the Transformers Universe! The exhibit’s entry will ask you to “Choose Your Team," with featured photo ops with Optimus Prime and Megatron.

Examine Transformers vintage toys and character images, which represent a sampling of the 6,000 characters developed by Hasbro over the past 30 years. This space includes a 10’ Optimus Prime statue from Transformers: Age of Extinction, an Autobot and Decepticon character display, and other interactives focused on the fantasy world of Transformers.

There will also be a display of full-size Transformers fan costumes, including The Children’s Museum’s own Bumblebee costume.

The Hasbro toy design area will allow you to participate in key phases of the toy making process including aspects such as conceptual design, engineering, and testing. Enter an immersive space emulating Hasbro designers at work and watch a 3D printer printing a grey model prototype.


Image


Autobot Central is a facilitated program space featuring hands-on workshops where visitors design robotic creations using some of the same skills used by Transformers designers. The space will also feature vintage commercials and cartoons.


Image


The Become Bumblebee interactive asks visitors to imagine if YOU were a Transformer as you virtually transform into a robot on screen.

Gee, this is half an hour from me, and mopst of that time is spent sitting in Indy traffic, not actual distance. I should probably go...

1) The kids don't mind nearly as much as we do. Megs is Megs.

2) I'm betting its a mirrored image. We've seen that artwork before.

I would travel across a sea of stars to go to this place. I'll try to at some point. Even though, I live nowhere near it.

I don't know exactly when I'll be there, owing to our crazy Indiana weather, but it will definitely be on the 7th. I can PM you when the date gets closer.
