Marvel Studios : Ten Years Of Heroes Exhibition in Pavilion Elite, Kuala Lumpur
The Marvel Studios : Ten Years Of Heroes Exhibition is held in Pavilion Elite, Kuala Lumpur from 28th June until 27th October. I wasn’t invited to the launch though (huhu!) that was attended by both Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia’s Prime Minister and his wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohamad Ali on 27th June.
Alas, it doesn’t matter (the only way I know to console myself). What matters is that I visited the Marvel Studios : Ten Years Of Heroes Exhibition with my husband and enjoyed the 10 immersive galleries of our beloved Marvel characters – on a week day, where there are not many visitors! 😛
Of course, you would have to purchase an entrance ticket before entering the exhibition. My husband and I bought ours through Klook and paid the purchase using Maybank Credit Card (Debit and Charge cards accepted too) to get 5% discount (by key-ing in promo code MARVELEXHMB5) from the RM48 ticket price. On top of that, we also get free Klook credits after completing an “experience”. So, click this Klook link here to purchase your tickets now.
Getting to Pavilion Elite is fairly easy. We went there via MRT (Bukit Bintang) to skip the traffic jam but if you’re into driving, there are ample parkings in Pavilion too (parking fee is a little stiff though).
Worthwhile Experience at Marvel Studios : Ten Years Of Heroes Exhibition Galleries
If you choose to purchase the Pass (with your photo on it), you will first have to take your “passport photo” near the Entrance. If not, you can proceed to the Entrance straight away.
Upon entering, you will be welcomed with LCD panels of lists of all the Marvel movies throughout the past 10 years. It would be a walk down memory lane. After the lists have jogged up your memory of all the Marvel movies and characters you loved (or hated), you can start exploring the galleries.
Gallery #1 – Iron Man
It is only appropriate to start the first gallery with the first movie that started it all – Marvel Studios “Iron Man” (2008). Honestly, back then I didn’t like Tony Stark’s pompous character. I didn’t like Robert Downey Jr very much either because he is the epitome of Tony Stark: pompous, conceited and arrogant. 😛
In this gallery, visitors can take full photo of the Hall of Armor (but only if you used a wide-lens camera) like Samsung Galaxy S10+. I used my Samsung Note 9 and phew, I managed to capture the whole thing – albeit not 100% fully.
Visitors can also see Tony Stark’s Lab and the evolution of the Iron Man suits!
Oh, and don’t miss the The Arc Reactor from “Avengers: Endgame” (2019)!
Gallery #2 – Captain America
Tony Stark is always bickering with Steve Rogers so what better way to have Captain America’s gallery right after Iron Man right?
I loved the poster at the background but mostly I just love the Captain America Stealth Shield on display that was from “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014). I always thought the silver colour was wayyy cooler than the blue and red. But of course, there’s also the blue and red Captain America USO Shield from “Captain America: The First Avenger” (2011).
You can also see a mini version of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.
Gallery # 3 – Thor
“Heimdall! Open the Bifrost!”
Walk on the “bifrost” from Captain America’s realm to the God-like realm of Asgard. Or maybe, just Thor’s bedroom. If you’re a fan of Thor, you would love seeing his Mjølnir and Stormbreaker from “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018) being kept neatly in their cases.
But, it was Loki’s Scepter in Thor’s room that gave me joy, although it was the only thing that belonged to Loki in the whole exhibition area. Whyyy weren’t there any more Loki???
Gallery #4 – Doctor Strange
The Doctor Strange section is a really cool, interactive section. I loved the upside-down-floating-around world in the giant LCD panel on the wall depicting the Mirror Dimension.
As I walked ahead, I came upon interactive panels where visitors can “Create a Portal”, “Bend Reality” or just experience the “Mystic Art of Time Manipulation”.
The setting in this section is probably my favourite. Visitors can see the Eye Of Agamoto from “Dr. Strange” (2016) and his costume from the same movie.
Gallery #5 – The Guardians Of The Galaxy
Even from Dr. Strange’s chambers I could hear the song “Mr. Blue Sky” by Electric Light Orchestra, indirectly telling me that the next room would belong to none other than The Guardians Of The Galaxy.
The display room here is smaller than the earlier sections but what’s important is that visitors will be able to see the Gamora Sword and Star Lord Blasters, both from “Guardians Of The Galaxy” (2014).
And then if you’re in the mood, you should dance with Groot to the “Mr. Blue Sky”‘s song.
Gallery #6 – Black Panther
It’s not hard to guess what the next gallery is about when you hear the song “BagBak” by Vince Staples blasting from the speakers. The Black Panther greets visitors in that cool crouching pose before visitors can enter his cave in the Kingdom of Wakanda.
Visitors will get to see a small part of Shuri’s lab and her formulas. But the attraction of this side is definitely the Black Panther costume worn by Chad Boswick in the movie “Black Panther” (2018).
Gallery #7 – Ant Man
Scott Lang was not my favourite amongst all the Avengers character so I wasn’t so excited to see his section but I do have to say that seeing Pym’s Lab in that luggage-size does bring back memories to the movie “Ant Man and The Wasp” (2018).
And just like in Thor’s gallery, there’s also a life-sized sculpture of Ant Man in his gallery, all suited up and ready to go!
Gallery #8 – Captain Marvel
Another character that wasn’t my favourite. I liked the idea of a strong woman superhero but in the last movie, “Avengers: Endgame” (2019), she was too snobbish for my liking, yet with all her superior demeanor (and supposedly super powers), she was slapped by Thanos with just one stone and couldn’t save the day. Whereas Iron Man, who had no power whatsoever managed to kill Thanos and restore peace and semblance to the universe. Pfff!
For fans of Captain Marvel though, make sure to see the costumes worn in the “Captain Marvel” (2019) movie. VIsitors can also customise different Captain Marvel suits at the interactive display powered by Samsung Galaxy!
Gallery #9 – The Avengers
In this gallery, it’s all about the stones. There are panels with headphones that will explain to visitors about each of the Infinity Stones: Mind, Power, Reality, Soul, Space, and Time stones.
There’s a very large Thanos in the corner and right after that section, visitors will be able to take photos of themselves at the LCD screen and see themselves be decimated by the power of the Infinity Gauntlet.
Oh, there’s also the Infinity Gauntlet (or Nano Gauntlet, in this case) like from “Avengers: Endgame” (2019) for visitors to ogle at.
Gallery #10 – The Collector’s Museum
It wouldn’t be complete to leave the Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes Exhibition without seeing The Collector’s Museum and what it has in store for the visitors.
If you recall, The Collector’s Museum was first introduced into the Marvel Studios screen in “Thor: The Dark World” (2013), that is located in the Knowhere mining colony, The owner of the museum, Taneleer Tivan stores many artefacts and specimens including the Aether and Orb.
In this gallery, you might notice Howard The Duck from “Guardians Of The Galaxy” (2014) too.
After a few hours immersing oneself in everything Marvel, it is not uncommon to find visitors enjoying shelves and shelves of merchandises and checking their wallets before purchasing their merchandise of choice.
If I had much money, I wouldn’t think twice to buy some of the cool Iron Man stuffs (even though I was not a super-fan). I just wished they had at least SOMETHING on Loki (even though he was a villain).
But alas, a Marvel T-Shirt worked for me.
