Last minute! Last minute!!

Our crews had a very short sleep as everyone was either too excited or too busy preparing. Have left home only near the wee hours of the morning at 2am, and hurried to the venue just less than 6 hours after that to finalise the settings of the exhibit displays. Talking about spirit? This bunch have it all!

The event features a near 7 foot tall and 125kg Optimus Prime which was one of the largest of its kind to be displayed. Our members have the honour to assemble the model before the launch which was truly an unforgettable moment.

Optimus was then clad underneath a red cloth to surprise visitors and press people during the launch. The main partners then unveiled Prime followed by a roar of applause from all the attendees of the launch.

Some emotional fans get teary. Yes, guys get teary too. If you are an ol-skool fan who have some sort of attachment to this memorable ol-skool thingy, it can be touchy.

However Cinema Online gave an unaccurate info to disregard us by putting ‘Robotoys’ instead of TransMY as a way to deny promoting us. This was because Cinema Online was a proxy affiliated to another rival.

RIDZWAN A. RAHIM was there. WHEN was the last time you saw a boxy first generation Optimus Prime or the butt-ugly, kaki terkangkang (legs spread apart) Generation 1 (G1) Megatron? Fifteen years ago? Twenty years ago?

Or did you know it is possible to build an Optimus Prime using Lego blocks in a way that allows you to actually transform it back-and-forth between robot mode and truck mode?

Done by our guy. At least this one save our ass instead of a fictatious collector group called Robotoys. WTF.

Anyway, it has been a good start for something event bigger on the future with Transformers Movie franchise will continue to hit the screen and making more fans out of it. Hopefully our membership and activities will flourish into some much grander in scale and size to be able to cater growing fans.
