Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Preview Optimus
I returned to Preserve HQ this evening to discover a surprise package from our press buddies at Hasbro. What was inside? Why, the first and only preview figure from the imminent new Transformers line to support this summer's third live action movie!
The first wave of figures will be hitting stores in a coordinated blast on May 16th, though some stores have gotten this limited preview Optimus Prime ahead of time (as they were supposed to). Since my lame local stores have not, it was a welcome surprise to get to see this figure at last! This version of Prime is from the new Cyberverse label, and is 'Commander' scale, which is sort of what 'Scout' is becoming going forward. Conveniently it even comes with some great 3D glasses, so you can see exclusive content on transformers.com
- or feel like you're at a screening of Freddy's Dead in 1991! I think for the upcoming Dark of the Moon movie, though, I'm going to spring for the Optimus Prime 3D mask
- pictures of me wearing that at the preview will follow in the fullness of time.
I'll open him up soon, but wanted to get the post done as soon as possible. Also Hasbro wanted to remind you all about their 16 Weeks of Cyber Sweeps
contest which will keep the excitement high until the movie hits theaters on July 1st!
