    Well guys, as some of you may know I am member of the Peruvian Transfan Community: Transformers Peru. We are a community which started as a group in 2003, and in 2008 we finally became a legal association, recognized by Peruvian law.

    It has been a long time, trying to become a serious and organized group. We have had tons of problems, friends who worked hard, some people who left, some who came back, in the end we prepared ourselves for this year since we knew DOTM would be a success here in Peru.

    Since we became a legal association we finally could deal with our local Hasbro representatives and we got support from them for our activities.

    As a result I wanted to share with all of you guys, some of the events that we were part or responsible of. We now have several ways of promotion, our good old forum in www.transformersperu.com (which recently got more than 100000 posts) and our facebook page with more than 1000 fans to date. We are far from becoming something as great as the good old tfw2005, but we hope you will like the work and effort of all of us in the pics below. I will post some pics and then I will post a link to the respective FB album with more pics.

    DOTM CONFERENCE IN PERU'S NATIONAL LIBRARY'S AUDITORIUM

    Our first main event, with more than 300 people . It was part of a round of conferences about science-fiction and super hero movies. I myself was one of the expositors together with my friend and president of Transformers Peru, David Buenaño.

    Some pics:

    The main entrance of our National Library.

    We had a great talk about all Transformers Movies and Comics, we gave away some toys and we even showed the classic Transformers The Movie from 1986.

    We also sold some tickets for our exclusive Premiere of DOTM, it was the first paid show in Peru.

    DOTM DEBIT CARDS PROMOTION


    Well, I shared this on the forums before. A local bank had a great offer for DOTM Debit cards. As you should imagine, they were a hit in Peru since it was the very first time a movie themed debit card was offered here. You could also participate in a contest for a Trip to Orlando.

    DOTM ROOM IN HILTON HOTEL

    This was also posted here before. The Hilton hotel brand here, prepared this cool DOTM Theme room, and it's still waiting for all of you guys who decide to spend some vacations in Peru in Paracas, a beautiful touristic resort at the south.

    DOTM EXCLUSIVE AVANT PREMIERE AND PREMIERE

    Some of you may have read this before, we were invited to an exlcusive 30 minutes screening of DOTM and Super 8 in May 13th. I shared on the forums how amazed we were all with the great scenes.

    Well, this was the perfect motivation to organize the premiere of DOTM in Peru. We were also part of the promotion and contest for the Avant Premiere in a local theater, sponsored by a local TV channel and some more organizations on June 28 at about 7 pm.

    A pic of the invitation, hold by me and DOTM Shockwave as special guest, you can see our logo in the lower right corner.

    The great metal statue of Optimus Prime at the entrance of the theater. It was a great party.

    After that, our premiere came. It was the first paid screening in Peru. We started at 11.00 pm.

    You can see our tickets, the screening was in the same theater as the Avant Premiere:

    Some happy people:

    And the full crowd!:

    It was a total party, at the mall where the theater was they had more than the OP statue. A real Chevy Spark was shown with a Skids banner, there was also an electronic panel where you could play an easy trivia game (if you had a ticket for a certain amount of expenses at the mall), and much more!

    DOTM EXPO AND OPTIMUS PRIME!

    We have an expo of toys in a local gallery. We had 2 before. They are usually hold in September, but we made this one before the movie started. Here you can see some of the displays. Most of the pics thanks to Kaisoku TV (a local fan channel here)

    Maybe this was the best display, Devastator's battle!

    Another great display, thank to the effort of our member Iejas!

    [​IMG]

    This one was a fan favorite!

    [​IMG]

    We also had some big banners of the articles written for a local newspaper for the previous movies. We also prepared another one for DOTM:

    You can see more displays here:

    But this was the Crown to all our efforts! Hasbro Peru customized a truck to make it look like Optimus Prime and it was rolling over our streets some days and we could make that the truck will come and stay in front of our expo the last day. It was great to see all the kids and people around looking for a picture:

    [​IMG]

    And a video of the great moment of Optimus' entrance:

    I hope you enjoyed the pics. I wanted to share this with all of you guys. As I said before, we are far from becoming a great community like tfw2005, but I am very proud of all what some great guys here in Peru could make with a lot of Energon and a lot of luck.

    Thanks!

    We have got a great group here. One of the best parts is that almost everybody knows each other personally and we are kind of a family here.

    I'd like to see where it ranks with inflation taken account of.

    PS. Anyone else find it sad that Spider-Man 3 is above one, and especially 2 on that list?
