Fans of “The Transformers” franchise will love the idea of this brand new miniseries from IDW Publishing who’ve been offering up stories about the famous robots in disguise with “Transformers: Unicron”. Take a look at some art and the full press release down below. I’ll return at the close.
The Press Release:
The fate of all worlds are at stake, as the world-eating menace Unicron has set his sights on Cybertron, home of the TRANSFORMERS robots, and next in line… EARTH! A bi-weekly six issue event titled TRANSFORMERS: UNICRON arrives this July and will bring about the end of the TRANSFORMERS universe as we know it. As Optimus Prime gathers his defense against this monstrous threat, it might be too little too late.
The first annual HasCon has come and went and while we didn’t attend we’ve been keeping a close bit of scrutiny on any reveals from the event and with that being said there were several brand new action figures from “The Transformers” line. To say that this is a mega-popular license for Hasbro Toys would be an understatement so what I’ve done is shared the images of the figures along with their awesome artwork. I will not be saying much since you don’t need your “oohs” and “ahhs” interrupted. Here we go.
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.
The Press Release:
One of the biggest TRANSFORMERS products of 2017 was just revealed at the Beijing and Guangzhou Midnight Sales Event-the OPTIMUS PRIME MPM-4 figure, the latest figure from the MASTERPIECE MOVIE SERIES line! The figure is enclosed in a special glass window display, and fans are given the opportunity to take photos with it at this exclusive unveiling.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of Paramount and Michael Bay’s first Transformers blockbuster movie. We’re celebrating this milestone with the release of the OPTIMUS PRIME MPM-4 figure which is inspired by the iconic OPTIMUS PRIME character in the original 2007 TRANSFORMERS film. Co-created by Hasbro and Tomy, the figure converts from robot to classic truck mode and features eye-catching detail, articulated fingers and an interchangeable mask – perfect for fans and collectors alike.
Fans of the Autobots will be ready to roll out as the latest film for the franchise opens today with “Transformers: Age Of Extinction” – are you excited about this news? Or are you a Decepticon? Check out the poster.
