The Outpost Movie Recon Team (M.R.T.) away mission this month rolled out to the Transformers Expo Malaysia held in the Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands. Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the infamous transforming robots from Cyberton, this expo is touted as the largest expo to date in Asia taking place from 31 January to 16 February 2014. Open from 10am to 10pm, tickets are priced at RM55 for adult and RM45 for child. More details at the official website and Facebook Page as well as feature article from TheStar.

Our online search for visitor reviews or experiences of Transformers Expo turned out few results, so the Outpost MRT recon report here will attempt to serve as a brief guide on what to expect at the exhibition. Admittedly this may come too late should one be motivated to head over to Transformers Expo which ends the weekend this report is published. But we do hope it still serves to enlighten everyone on what to have expected from the exhibition. So here we go with our walkthrough with quotes from the brochure of the various attractions (and fortunately no restrictions on photography).
