Seibertron.com's tour of Universal Studios Hollywood's Transformers The Ride 3D
Part 2: Transformers stores, merchandise, and products


(Click here to view Part 1: "The Main Attraction")

Part of my experience at Universal Studios that I couldn't get over was the insane amount of Transformers related merchandise that was available throughout the park. Some of the stores were dedicated ENTIRELY to Transformers products and merchandise. Some of the stores were called "Transformers Supply Vault". I had the misunderstanding that there was only going to be a select amount of Transformers items available (i.e. the Universal Studios deluxes, voyagers, the Allspark cube, and some shirts). I had no idea that there was going to be an onslaught of exclusive products available as well as products that you can find at regular retail stores.

I also was surprised at the amount of merchandise that was G1 themed, not just Movie themed. The pictures below are just a sampling of the products that were available. You can click on any of the images below to view a full gallery of the Transformers stores at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Unfortunately, as one might expect with products and merchandise at a theme park, the prices were on the expensive side. All of the retail Transformers toys were double MSRP, which might explain why you could find so many Vehicons and other popular toys available. The items that were exclusive to Universal Studios I could understand being more expensive, but I didn't understand why everything else was going for top dollar.

Regardless, there should be something for every Transformers fan here. I ended up with an Allspark Cube and a magnet and my sister ended up with a cool NEST hat and shirt. I would love to go back with the intention of getting a few other items. With rumors that Transformers The Ride will be opening up in Florida as well, I'm sure we'll all have plenty of chances to get there while this ride is still hot and merchandise is plentiful.

Those Arcee shirts are pretty good. I also noticed there wasn't a million BB figures on the pegs there. :P

I'm heading to California at the end of August. I was debating going to Universal, since it would be out of the way, but this just convinced me.

Also, growing up in Northern Ohio, I was also spoiled with Cedar Point, though I did go to Orlando about 10 years ago and went to Universal. I wasn't really impressed. Cedar Point is a very fun place, not a lot of others can substitute.

gotta agree the ride was awesome!! and the 3d was truly incredible.

the main store just outside the ride also had some IDW novels and all 4 volumes of AHM in that big center display area in the middle of the store. even saw the new prime stuff and managed to snag a megatron pillow for my nephew. definitely a great show.

I was really tempted to grab those Megatron and Optimus Prime throw pillows, but decided that I really had no where for them to go and that they'd just look out of place ultimately. Maybe I'll grab them one day for my inevitable man-cave one day.
