Autobots attack!

Well, not quite. These Transformers are sort of laidback.

Actually, they are part of the Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition. Yes, Megatron is 30.

The exhibition makes its third and final stop in Asia at the Science Centre Singapore in Jurong.

"We aim to unveil the omnipresence of the science behind the Transformers in our everyday life. Visitors will also find out in the exhibition that there is more to unearth to understand the inner workings of transformation," said Science Centre Singapore's chief executive, Associate Professor Lim Tit Meng.

Visitors will get to experience eight zones. Each visitor will get a card that will send them on a mission.

They will also learn the Transformers language, Cybertronian, so they can decode a clue.

They will come face to face with two 7m-tall figures - Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

More than 1,000 Transformers collectibles and fans' collectibles will also be displayed.

Mr Roderick Wong, who grew up watching the Transformers cartoon, said: "I would definitely go to this exhibition to relive my childhood memories as I've been a fan of Transformers ever since I was a kid."
