Footage of Transformer toy assembly and production in Veitnam – how Transformers are made

Ok, so it’s been almost 2 months since I said I’d be updating more frequently, but I don’t want to just post fluff.

I’ve been doing some deep diving into some topics and I came across this hardly viewed (as of this post less than 1000 views) videos from a company in Vietnam that is assembling some The Last Knight and Robots in Disguise series Transformers! This footage is awesome for those that have been wondering how the process works.

No, transformers are not completely manufactured by machines. Actual people do the assembly.  The parts are far too delicate and difficult to assemble for complete automation.

I must say, the factory looks very well-kept, clean, and modern!  I’d love to take a walk on the production floor! Specifically you can see The Last Knight Leader Optimus Prime and deluxe Squeeks being assembled along a conveyor with dozens if not hundreds of assembly line workers.  See for yourself!

The channel is named GTF Group HK.  It’s been a few months since they’ve posted anything new, but let’s hope for more!

Leader Dark Spark Optimus Prime Revealed at Hong Kong Toy Show

Guess who’s back, back.. back again, gain…

The second toy from the upcoming “The Last Knight” toyline was revealed at the Hong Kong Toyfair along with Masterpiece Movie Bumblebee. This time it is Shadow Spark Optimus Prime! We can surmise that this represents the evil Nemesis Prime version of Optimus that we’ve seen battling Bumblebee in the trailers thus far.  The color scheme is a little… weird, but the more depressing thing is that this is our first repackaged redeco from a previous movie line popping up.  We have a redeceo of Age of Extinction Leader Optimus Prime on our hands, complete with bizarro non-canon sword!

Holy box art, Batman

Also revealed is the massive change in packaging which is focusing on box art instead of the toy! I guess  the robot characters were finally deemed to matter? Also notice that stupid logo for “Transformers: The Last Knight” is still in effect and this is also dubbed as part of a “premiere line.”
