There probably were some sightings of some of the Decepticons around Penang... so the My Penang Tourism has roped in Optimus Prime and Bumblebee to stand guard at the Penang Esplanade to safeguard our heritage buildings... hehehe

Yours truly here was lucky to get to check it out while on my AirAsia Penang Takeover mission...

The famed sci-fi action Transformers duo will be stationed there on a specially enhanced platform at the promenade since July 10th and will be there until Sept 17

Anyway it is regarded as South East Asia's first ever outdoor Transformers exhibition and it is happening right in George Town, Penang! 

Be prepared to be amazed  and mesmerized by gigantic displays of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. 

Optimus Prime stands tall at 30 feet  and  Bumblebee at 20 feet in height will definitely be the target for selfies and photo-taking at the Esplanade. 

The best thing of all??? It is FREE of charge!!! And if possible,do not miss out on Optimus Prime and Bumblebee's performances at night with laser lights and sound effects.

Check out adorable FatinBella with a new version of the children on the bicycle mural... hehehe

Asia's 1st Transformers Street Art
Take some time to have fun with some adorable Autobots which has somehow found themselves in their first outdoor artsy adventure! 

With about half a dozen containers serving as the canvas for some pretty amazing and exclusive Transformers street artworks, you are bound to be thrilled... 

Be sure to get your snapshots and selfies with the autobots but don’t forget to spot famous Penang landmarks like KOMTAR, the Penang Bridge, the Ferry and many others too! 

There will also be a photography/selfie contest organised by the Penang Global Tourism where the best submitted creative shots taken with these artworks will stand to win special edition Transformers collectibles. Exciting isn't it....

I loved the street art loads.. See the above one where poor Bumblebee is carrying Optimus Prime around Penang on a beca... or trishaw... hehehe
