Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition Singapore: Optimus Prime and Dinobots Repaint



Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition Singapore celebrates 30 years of evolution of the much beloved and world famous Transformers series. Spotted in the exhibition held at the Science Centre Singapore is this showcase of repainted Transformers toys by Sang Zhong.

Sang Zhong has built great interest in toy models and figures since childhood. After he graduated in fashion design from Donghua University, he still kept the passion for models and figures. He began working on Transformers DIY work, and gradually fell in love with repainting the toys.

Upon the release of the Transformers movie, a series of toys was released in the market. However, due to mass production, the toys were not quite satisfying and their look - especially the colours - appeared quite different from the movies. Some were also disappointed with the plastic texture of the toys. To solve this problem, Sang Zhong started his re-painting project on Transformers toys, hoping to give the toys a rebirth.

Sang Zhong's project is to repaint the original Transformers toys with an ornate metal paint to give texture. The toys had to be completely dismantled and each part was repainted. Paint is applied in multiple layers to ensure the colouring is in perfect condition.
