After their successful Monkey Show (and opening), Rotofugi are continuing to build up a solid inventory of designer toys (a Kinsey set anyone?). They've got a new show in the gallery starting today with an official opening this Friday by Chicago artist Jeffrey Lacson: "Titled Transfigured Transformers, the show will exhibit several of Lacson’s large format prints and constructions based upon Transformer toys." and "Think Transformers turned into religious icons and mandalas." Details here. Umm, I hope there's no The Passion of Optimus Prime in the works...
