As some of you Back to the Future fans may know, the 35th anniversary for the iconic film franchise is coming up tomorrow, July 3rd, and to celebrate 35 years of time traveling in a souped-up DeLorean Hasbro is making and has fully revealed their crossover Transformers figure, Gigawatt! We recently learned of the name and a bit more about the figure, but thanks to Mashable we now have plenty of images of the highly-anticipated blast from the past!
Gigawatt seems to be a complete overhaul of the Siege Sideswipe mold (primarily the engineering) and features a flux capacitor with times and dates on his chest, goggles mimicking those of Doc’s, and a slew of other details that just ooze nostalgia. In addition to a faithful recreation given Cybertronian life, Gigawatt comes complete with G1-style packaging much like Ectotron. However there are two different versions of this figure. There are Pulse and Walmart versions, the latter of which is apparently limited and comes numbered with sequences of “0001 of 1985” on a graphic that replicates a California license plate. Additionally, a new special 4-issue comic miniseries crossover comic by IDW has been announced for October 1, 2020.
In addition to the figure reveals, we also have a couple pieces of artwork commemorating the reveal! And possibly teasing some hijinks down the road with Doc and Marty?
Check out the pics after the jump, and be sure to share your thoughts and excitement in the discussion!
