With two weeks left to Roll Out Roll Call, The UK Transformers, G.I. Joe & Action Force Show we still have many announcements to come and look forward to, including the first appearance at the show of Guido Guidi, flying over from Italy, Guido has helped contribute to many Transformers projects, including the awesome Transformers: Devastation game from Activision.
For more than 30 years transformation has been a staple part of the pop cultural landscape in the shape of ‘Transformers’ a toy and movie franchise, born in 1984 which grew from Japanese designed Takara toys, rebranded and distributed in the USA as Transformers.
JaguarShoes Collective believe that this design practice is long overdue some well deserved admiration and celebration. Therefore we will be hosting a talk and Q&A on 24th September alongside an exhibition of work by prop and toy designer Alexander Kubalsky.
An accomplished product designer Alex specialises in the art of Transformable design and is commissioned by numerous commercial clients inc. Hasbro, Warner Films and many other multinational toy and film franchises.
