A new article in venturebeat.com provides information on a new upcoming Transformers VR experience happening in China.
"Hasbro and Dan Mintz’s Hollywood film studio DMG Entertainment are launching interactive Transformers virtual reality and augmented reality centers in China — a nation where the robots in disguise films have thrived in recent years.
The centers will treat guests to “digital simulation experiences” based on the Transformers universe in both VR and AR. The first center will open in Shanghai this summer, and the companies will add more in other Chinese centers over the next five years.
According to a spokesperson, these will have “VR battle-walk-through experiences, VR/AR rides [such as driving/flying simulators], interactive digital experiences, and more.” These Transformers will be based on the beloved Generation One designs of the original 1980s toy line, TV show, and comics, “but we will be applying a photo-realistic and real-world finish to it. It will resemble the original toys/comics/TV shows more than Bay movies.”
You’ll be able to battle the Decepticons on Cybertron alongside Autobot leader Optimus Prime, or climb behind the wheel of Bumblebee (another beloved Autobot) and drive it.
“We’re pushing the boundaries of creative storytelling by harnessing innovative, immersive and interactive technology that brings fans into the Transformers world like never before,” said Mintz, in a statement.

Have you been wishing your Titans Return Megatron looked more like his MTMTE Autobot Megatron self as designed and drawn by the amazingly talented Alex Milne? We sure have, and in typical Unicron.com fashion, we got to work fixing the problem! Now with the help of Shapeways, we're ready to share the spoils of our efforts with all of our fellow fans! Behold, the Titans Return MTMTE Autobot Megatron upgrade kit - part 1! (yes, we realize this these parts only fix the robot mode torso; if part 1 is a hit, you can likely expect part 2 eventually.)
Unicron.com Designed parts currently included:
Autobot Megatron Chest Piece - https://www.shapeways.com/product/2Q6BQAVCY/mtmte-megatron-chest-for-strong-flexible?optionId=62585951
MTMTE Style Megatron Chest Piece w/o faction symbol - https://www.shapeways.com/product/Q7PAPMJ2S/mtmte-megatron-chest-no-faction-symbol?optionId=62585461
Shoulder Cannon (which becomes tank mode turret) - https://www.shapeways.com/product/TU9U47MU8/mtmte-megatron-cannon-barrel?optionId=62583080
And MTMTE Shoulder detail (really does make an important difference to the silhouette) - https://www.shapeways.com/product/F89758B2P/mtmte-megatron-shoulder-detail?optionId=62576917
Finally, we have the beautifully modeled MTMTE face for Megatron's Titan Master designed by 3dprintron - https://www.shapeways.com/product/FK6KCCK4H/megatron-mtmte-for-titans-return?optionId=61002980&li=ostatus
*Fair warning while the Unicron.com designed parts were created with a minimal effort installation mindset (able to be very easily painted and installed), this amazingly detailed face requires an extremely steady hand to paint, but if you're willing to put in the time and effort, the results can be quit stunning. I would recommend Testers "Gull Grey" color to match the oddly warm grey metalic plastic of Titans Return Voyager Megatron.
Finally an official Sunstreaker to compliment your Masterpiece collection! New images from a scan of some as yet undetermined Japanese magazine, courtesy of
