I’m going to keep the introduction to this one brief because it’s a long press piece with a LOT of images to go along with it. Just the other day Hasbro Toys released the images for the upcoming film ”Transformers: The Last Knight”. All the images and copy came from their press channels, but I’ll return at the close with a few editorial notions. Here we go. Maybe I should have said “ROLL OUT” (that works better right?).

I just received this bit of press about an awesome new collectible Transformers figure of Optimus Prime and I couldn’t wait to share it with you. As you know, we’ve been hitting Toy Fair for seven years now and just love to present these kinds of items for our fellow collectors and geeks. Dig into the provided press copy and images. I’ll close up with some thoughts at the end of it all.

I’d say that it feels like only yesterday that I was sharing some visuals about an awesome set of action figures from those folks over at Hasbro Toys but it was yesterday so let’s move on. The interesting thing is that this information was circulating around the same time as the low down on the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” action figures for the film that opens in July. This news is a right surprise because its coming only a couple of weeks before the “Guardians Of The Galaxy” Vol. 2 film which we’ve also been discussing here and sharing some trailers like THIS ONE on the website for a few months. Hasbro has just unveiled the Second Wave of action figures for this film and I’ve culled the images from Amazon.com to share with you below. Let’s take a look.
