Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye!

2009 – Indefinitely Case

Museum: Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center

Location: Boeing Aviation Hangar

Since 1984, Transformers toys have been a part of playtime in America. 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.

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). See toys and props from the film.
