Inspiring the imagination of kids and adults for generations The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis celebrates 30 years of these heroic robots in TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, opening March 7, 2015.
“Are you an AUTOBOT or a DECEPTICON?” will be asked of visitors entering this unique intergenerational exhibit through giant TRANSFORMERS masks. Inside, children and families will recognize all their favorite characters — from the evil DECEPTICON leader MEGATRON and his archrival, the wise OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOT army, to BUMBLEBEE and STARSCREAM. The exhibit will span the universe of the TRANSFORMERS brand, from Generation 1, which debuted in 1984, to the characters from Hasbro’s newest animated series TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE – giving every member of the family a chance to share favorite memories.
"TRANSFORMERS prove that ordinary things can become extraordinary with an active imagination and great engineering,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. “Just when you thought you were looking at a cool Camaro, you realize that underneath the shell is a giant AUTOBOT with a taste for adventure named BUMBLEBEE. We want families to explore how there really is more to the world than meets the eye and as they learn that together, they will share the joy of puzzle solving and discovery.”
It’s a jet, a car, a dinosaur! It’s a TRANSFORMERS Character!
Since the 1980s, the TRANSFORMERS brand has fascinated children and parents alike with heroic AUTOBOTS and villainous DECEPTICONS. Visitors will be immersed deep inside the universe of the TRANSFORMERS brand viewing rare and collectable toys, comics, memorabilia, film props and more!
Prepare to be transported to the future as the exhibit also features the all new animated series, TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, set to debut on the Cartoon Network at 6pm EST on March 14th. Visitors will discover all new characters and a fun action-packed storyline in which BUMBLEBEE must return to Earth and lead a rag tag team of AUTOBOTS who must capture a group of DECEPTICONS on the loose.
“We’re very excited to bring the TRANSFORMERS brand to life by showcasing the creativity and innovation behind a brand that’s been in families’ homes for more than three decades,” says Tom Warner, Senior Vice President Transformers Franchise Lead, Hasbro, Inc. “Bringing together fans of all generations, this exhibit celebrates how the franchise has evolved in both engineering and design, and in entertainment over the past 30 years.

Back on Earth, the DECEPTICONS discover that the key to Vector Sigma is able to transmute whatever it touches into metal. Knowing that they have this, and the might of MENASOR, the DECEPTICONS decide that they will turn the Earth into a new Cybertron.
Teletraan 1 detects the energy of the key being used to convert parts of the area around a major northwestern city into metal, and alerts the AUTOBOTS. The AERIALBOTS join their new allies and head there, intent on stopping the DECEPTICONS from destroying the Earth’s environment with the key.
The STUNTICONS, upon seeing their hated rivals among their newly arrived enemies, charge towards them, intent on turning them into scrap. An instant later, a mighty battle erupts around them and the AERIALBOTS, leaving members of both factions out of commission.
As the fight rages on, MOTORMASTER, DEAD END, and the other STUNTICONS combine to become MENASOR. With a mighty roar, he lumbers onto the battlefield, knocking combatants flying as he storms towards the AERIALBOTS. Seeing the giant approach, they merge to form SUPERION, surprising their rival. Without a moment’s hesitation, they take MENASOR on hand-to-hand.
Can SUPERION turn the tide back against the DECEPTICONS? Or will MENASOR finish off the AUTOBOTS’ newest warriors? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Key to Vector Sigma, Part 2”!

I had the chance to choose some of my favorite Transformers to include (and it was hard to narrow it down), and I hope you enjoy playing the game! Good luck and have fun!
