The Transformers Building unveiling

The Transformers Building is doneTomorrow morning is the official “unveiling” of the building, even though it’s actually been done for several weeks now. I was too lazy to give an update until now, so I’ll also give you some news:

The unveiling of the building wrap! Be first to see exclusive footage and tour the Sector 7 Mobile Command Unit. Pick up advance screening passes to see TRANSFORMERS (while supplies last). Get your very own TRANSFORMERS action figure courtesy of Hasbro (available to the first 50 people who attend). Meet Tattoo from the Big Boy Morning Show on Power 106

Where: Behind TRANSFORMERS Building
1440 N. Vine (Kinko’s parking lot)

When: Thursday, May 10th – 7:00AM – 9:00AM

I’d reported a month ago here on blogging.la that this building was being wrapped and provided a photo. I had reported that when it was done, one side would have an eye which would glow red at night. I was right about this, as I found out the other night… I could see the red eye beaming at night toward the east (Decepticon side). What I didn’t know was that that Autobot side of the building (west side) had a BLUE eye beaming at night. Kick ass!

Little did anyone know that the day after my original post, the winds would pick up and rip off one of the two completed sides of the building at the time (the Autobot/west side), as reported by Defamer here.

I’d been hoping to keep the unveiling tomorrow a secret so I could get there early enough to get tickets and a toy, but since the whole world seems to know about it anyway, I’m going to wish you luck if you decide to go.

If I’m not mistaken, I’ve already been inside the Sector 7 Mobile Command Unit (at ShoWest, back in March), so if there are any publicists for this movie who would like to send me some screening tickets and a toy directly so I can bypass the insanity of people waiting outside at 4am, I would love that.

  1. i was gonna go after work. good thing i work until four in the am. i’ll hopefully get a jumpstart on the folks who weren’t already camped out from the night before.

  2. Sorry to be lame re: the movie (not interested in it…), but what the heck is the building under the wrap like? Will there be another restaurant bar up top? I loved going to 360 and getting a great view at night.

  3. Markland: If this is the same “Sector 7 Mobile Command Unit” that I saw at ShoWest, then people will see about 10-15 minutes of footage. But the event listing says “Pick up advance screening passes to see TRANSFORMERS (while supplies last).” I’m taking that part to mean they will give SOME tickets away.

    Julia: Right now the building is just a skeleton (see the defamer link for a peesky inside). It’s my understanding that this building is being redone into luxury condos. Though I’m not completely sure about it, I don’t believe there are plans for a “360” restaurant on top.

  4. Got there around 5pm to be the 21st in line. Yup. It’s about a 10 min footage (scorponok scene) with live actors (federal agents warning of NBE’s – non biological entities) inside the truck. First 50 got toys (protoform of either starscream or optimus, which really sucks since we all expected some kind of limited/exclusive figure). First 200 got passes to advance screening of the movie. All in all, it was ok. I, including other fans expected a lil bit more:)
