    We'd all love to see an exhibit showing off upcoming stuff but it looks as though this show is focused more on either children or people that generally don't know much if anything about transformers. If that is the goal then it appears to do a decent job. For those of us die hard collector's and followers, it seems drab or things are wrong etc.

    Good to know, but nobody was questioning her fandom.

    I went to this when it was in Macau. I dragged two fairly unimpressed kids around on the basis that it was "30th Anniversary" and therefore I expected it to be G1-heavy. It was not. Very disappointing Bay-verse centric but even for fans of that it was pretty thin on content.

    Wow, I'm in Singapore at the end of January, gonna be heading to this for sure. Incidently, Jazzmeister, could you please let me know of a few good places to hit up for some toys (I'm from the UK, so anything would be better than whTs on our shelves :) )

    Thanks very much

    May I suggest another UKer who's currently residing (& working) in S'pore who might be of assistance for you? ;)

    I love China Square Central mall - loads of cool toy shops. Definately worth a visit and I buy stuff from there from Fat Toys Corner as the guy has helped me out sourcing stuff so I'm happy to support him. But because there is so much cool stuff there, the place is a bit of an attraction and draws plenty of customers, so maybe they don't have to be so competitive with prices and maybe you can find better prices at some of the other places dotted around. Falcons Hangar rings a bell and there's other places too. Singapore is awesome!

    Feel free to pop by the Singapore Sightings Thread closer to your arrival date and let us know when you'll be in town and we'll see if we can't arrange a meetup of some sort. Keep your Sunday(s) free. I think as someone said already, the China Square Central flea market on Sundays is a good place to start.

    I'd be a lot more forgiving of this Exhibition had it been labelled something like "Transformers: Live Action Movie Exhibition" rather than what it is currently called. Cos apart from the Bayverse stuff there is VERY LITTLE coverage on the other TF lines to be called the "30th Anniversary."

    As for the collection on display, the reason I didn't bother putting pictures up is cos most of it featured toys that I think all of us have at home. Some of us probably have better, more extensive collections with possibly rarer figures than what was on display.

    A little bit disappointed with the Science Center over this. I worked with them 10 years ago when they brought in the Lord of the Rings Exhibition and that was brilliant. I visited their CSI Exhibition which was also a lot of fun... This one... well... sometimes you miss.
