    I have a question about the Megatron Voyager class, is it his cybertronian form? or his Osprey/tiger chopper mode (earth mode that is)?

    Of course, a Transformers display wouldn't be complete without the character themes display of Optimus Prime, Megatron, Ultramagnus, Grimlock, among others.

    Even though the weather wasn't cooperating, it didn't prevent people from coming to SM Megamall to join the Transformers Animated Launch!

    A Transformers trivia was held, with questions ranging from G1 to Operation Combination, from Beast Wars to Beast Machines, from RiD to Galaxy Force/Cybertron, and from The Transformers Movie to the Transformers Animated. The winner was a 15 year old :)
