A really good post about Penang.

When it comes to massage chairs, OSIM is certainly one of the biggest names out there. A few years ago, the company started to expand its reach into the gaming world by launching the uThrone Gaming Massage Chair and it has recently launched the new Transformers-themed models into our market.

Officially launched in Malaysia earlier this week, the new uThrone V Gaming Massage Chair Transformers Edition can be obtained in two different designs that represent two well-known Transformers characters: Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. As you can see, each of them is draped in the characters’ signature colourways.

In case you are not familiar with the Transformers characters, the Bumblebee’s uThrone V comes in a predominantly yellow and black paint job. On the other hand, Optimus Prime’s version is mainly in red and blue.

There is also glow-in-the-dark caricatures of the characters on the back area of each chair. With recline angle of up to 145 degrees together with adjustable armrests and 9.5cm height travel distance, OSIM has also included the uThrone V Transformers chairs with a memory form headrest alongside a lumbar cushion that has Autobots insignia on it.

In terms of their massaging setup, it seemed that uThrone V still utilizes the same V-Hand Technology from the original uThrone. The apparatus which includes 360 degrees massage rollers was apparently designed to mimic the masseuse’s hands to help untie muscle knots and provide relief to one’s neck, shoulders, and lumbar.


Unlike the original model, the remote control for uThrone V is not concealed on the chair’s armrest though and there are no built-in Bluetooth speakers too. OSIM has also equipped a side hook on the chair for users to mount their headphones or other accessories and they can also neatly arrange their cables using the clips that are located underneath the chair.

Meanwhile, OSIM has also launched the Transformers edition for the lower-end uThrone S gaming chairs. In case you missed or didn’t remember our report from last year, this particular model is a more rudimentary release as it does not come with the full-fledged neck, shoulder, and lumbar massage feature.

Instead, it offers a vibrating massage with three adjustable intensity levels. The chair also comes standard with recline angle of up to 155 degrees, adjustable armrests, a side hook to mount gaming accessories, and a charging port for the optional uCozy 3D neck & shoulder massage pillow.

The new OSIM Transformers uThrone V and S Gaming Massage Chairs are currently on display at OSIM’s roadshow in Mid Valley Megamall KL.

When it comes to pricing, the uThrone V Transformers Edition is currently being offered for RM3,088 instead of its standard price tag of RM4,988. As for the uThrone S Transformers Edition, it is currently available for RM2,088 as opposed to its normal pricing of RM3,288.

If you are not a fan of the Transformers design, you can still obtain the uThrone V in a plain black colourway for the same price. As for the uThrone S, OSIM is still selling last year’s Marvel Edition as well as the plain black option for a much lower price of RM1,788.
