The special display of the collectors’ and limited edition TRANSFORMERS figures.

The iconic TRANSFORMERS started off as a comic series in the 1980s before evolving into an animated television series that depicts a war amongst the Autobots and Decepticons that can transform from robots into vehicles and other objects. Set against Cybertron and Earth, the series showcases the Autobots’ continuous battle against the Decepticons to protect the humans. It touches on teamwork and leadership, as showcased by the affinity they have with each other and the respect they show to their leader.

The event was in partnership with i2 Promotions.

It is exciting as 3 bloggers get the chance to experience this, it is quite scary as I wouldn't want to have my hands in the box. The three bloggers are brave to face the challenge.
