First reveal from Transformers: The Last Knight. Revealed the recently unveiled Optimus Prime Voice Changer Helmet.
Peter Cullen did the voice for the product.
Warden stated that the helmet has signature lines form the movie. He pressed a button on the side and the speaker (on the top of the helmet hidden behind the Autobot Logo) stated the following:
- “Autobots, engage the enemy.”
- “Knowledge is the pathway to….”
The helmet is very durable.
Optimus Prime will have an epic journey in this movie. He’s going to be huge.
Presenter asked something on the lines of whether we’ll see Hot Rod. Answer: Hasbro is in the middle of the Prime Wars Trilogy. Hot Rod is a prominent character.
Introduced Preceptor and Twinferno.
Preceptor is first time in Microscope form since the 80s. Twinferno has dragon heads for hands.
Sixshot next – Bringing him back in leader class scale. Super posable than the original.
Sky Shadow next – This is a transformer with an added layer of puzzle to it.
TRYPTICON‘S LEG REVEALED! Stated that this is voted by Transformers Fans.
Very sturdy. Very very sturdy.
So fun to hear the team talking about 80s Boombox. So cool.
The representatives from Hasbro are so proud of the fans they have. G1 to Movie… best fans ever. What’s powerful is the bond with the toys. Working at Hasbro for Transformers is being the coolest dad in the world.
Two more Transformers Live Action Movies in 2018 and in 2019 after Transformers: The Last Knight next year. Hinted that fans may see Cybertron.
