Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye!
Small exhibition featuring historic Transformers toys and props used in the major motion picture.
Since 1984, Transformers toys have been a part of playtime in America. Multiple generations have devoted many hours converting these complex creations from cars, trucks, and planes into robotic-shaped creatures of all kinds. No longer simply toys for young children, Transformers have a devoted following that bridges age boundaries.
Transformers toys were first released while Cold War frictions were shaping America’s political and military policies. The classic “Good versus Evil” story line so representative of the struggle between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. during that era has emerged in the character of Transformers action figures and the plot lines of their stories.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
The Paramount/DreamWorks film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, was filmed in part at the Udvar-Hazy Center. It features the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird as Jetfire, a wise, elderly, former Decepticon (an evil Transformer) turned Autobot (a good Transformer). This exhibit case included historic Transformers toys, aviation- and Jetfire-related characters, and props used in the film.
This exhibition is now closed.
