Hasbro’s biggest showing this year went to the Transformers! With Transformers Prime currently airing on the Hub Channel, and Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon revving up to hit theaters on July 1st there was just no escaping the draw of those shiny, metal alien overlords… errr, protectors. We meant, ”protectors”. The biggest surprise from the show didn’t come from the toys however, because parked outside the Times Center was none other than Optimus Prime himself, complete with trailer!
Granted, it did take an actual Transformer being present to pull away any excitement about the toys which are really a step above what was seen with the previous 2 films. There are two lines of figures: the Mechtech, and Cyberverse assortments and look to be what most collector’s desire from their Autobot and Decepticon toys. The Transformers Prime figures, which MTV Geek has previously reported on, were also present and look even better in person. It’s really amazing just how show accurate they are able to get the figures and still allow for articulation and proper transforming. This is definitely shaping up to be a huge year for Transformers fans, and we are right there with ya! Most of the toys are scheduled to start hitting stores in May, while larger items like the Ultimate Optimus Prime and The Ark playset will be released soon after the film.
Let's first take a look at the Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon Cyberforce sets:
