Hasbro’s Studio Series of Transformers figures is finally moving on from the Bay films, and into something a little more animated. And from 1986.
Arise, Rodimus Prime
If you’re a Transformers action figure fan, then you know that the toys have gotten to be pretty great in recent years. The main line, which is now in a phase dubbed “Earthrise”, has been telling its own story about the Transformers’ escape from Cybertron and arrival on Earth.
But there’s another line of toys that goes right along with that one, called the Studio Series. It’s there that Hasbro aims for accuracy in delivering movie-themed figures. Of course, that’s meant all Michael Bay-influenced Transformers. But now, we’re seeing a big departure from that with 1986 animated movie figures.
And man, do they look great.
The above were just announced today, as a part of toy-maker Hasbro’s livestream on YouTube. The wave is the first to play off of the classic animated flick, and is set to ship in April of 2021.
As usual, a good chunk of the pre-orders have sold out already via Hasbro’s own online storefront, Pulse. They are however, still ready for order from numerous other online outlets, including Amazon, BBTS, and our pals at Entertainment Earth.
