HK Toy Museum @The Link Presents Robot Alliance Show

Since its grand opening in March, HK Toy Museum @ The Link has captured the attention of toy fans in Hong Kong, and Lok Fu Plaza has become a prime destination for toy lovers. The Link has partnered with well-known local robot collectors as well as Toysdaily, a popular online toy forum, to present a series of robot-themed events this summer. Highly collectible classic robot collections which have never been exhibited will be showcased to the public at the HK Toy Museum @ The Link for free, making Lok Fu Plaza the place to be for robot lovers and heightening public interest in robot toys. This is definitely an event that toy lovers should not miss!
 
Drumming up interest in the Robot Alliance with an exclusive selection of classic robot toys
As part of a partnership with Toysdaily, online voting on its Facebook fanpage and online forum was launched in late June, allowing the public to vote for the most classic and representative robots. In total, around 3,000 votes were received. The robots that received the most votes constitute the Robot Alliance, including Mobile Suit Gundam, Macross Series, Transformers, Mazinger, etc. Over 100 robot collections from toy collectors of Toysdaily, together with exclusive selections from well-known local robot collectors including Transformers robot collector Jackie Fung and Jumbo Machinder robot toy collector Raymond Wong, will be showcased in the Robot Alliance Show.
 
The media tour of the Robot Alliance Show was held today (17 July) at Lok Fu Plaza, with guests including Hilda Wong, Head of Marketing of The Link, Transformers robot collector Jackie Fung, Jumbo Machinder robot toy collector Raymond Wong, and Vince Chan, moderator of Toysdaily. Toy collectors introduced the highly collectible classic robot collections at the media tour, and cosplayers dressed as classic robot characters took part in a spectacular parade as well.
 
“I want to thank The Link for inviting me to share my collections with the public at Lok Fu Plaza. I believe this will be a very good activity for parents and their children to join,” said Raymond Wong, Jumbo Machinder robot toy collector.
 
Vince Chan, webmaster of Toysdaily, said, “This event, which serves as a platform for showcasing collections from different members of Toysdaily, also offers a great chance for robot lovers to exchange their views. Replica editions of many classic robots have been marketed in recent years, arousing interest in robot toys among the younger generation.”
