Meet Gigawatt, The Back To The Future x Transformers Crossover Action Figure

Great Scott! Hasbro, Universal Brand Development and Amblin Entertainment today revealed the first-ever Transformers-Back to the Future Collaboration, starring the all new character Gigawatt. This new time-traveling Transformers Autobot commemorates 35 years since the groundbreaking adventure film, Back to the Future, took audiences back in time.

When fans of the iconic Back to the Future Time Machine look a little closer at this nostalgic interpretation of the car, they will be treated to a new “robot in disguise” named Gigawatt, a converting time machine robot. The figure stands at 5.5 inches in Robot mode and can convert to Time Machine mode in 17 steps, plus it includes a blaster and whip antennae accessories, and features movie-inspired details from the film, including Doc Brown-style goggles, a flux capacitor chest piece, and time circuits. In time machine mode, the gullwing doors open and wheels rotate from vertical to horizontal to produce a hovering effect as seen at the end of the film.

In addition to the collectible figure, from IDW comes Transformers / Back to the Future – the four-part, comic book series. The first issue cover is being revealed today, along with the story synopsis: Marty McFly has just returned to his home sweet home, Hill Valley 1985, and everything’s looking up… that is, until Marty and his friend Doc Brown’s time machine attracts the attention of the Decepticons! With one small mistake, Marty finds himself thrust into adventure to stop the Decepticon plot in the past, present, and future… all with the help of a new time machine: the Autobot, Gigawatt!

Transformers robots have always been more than meets the eye, but now, through the Transformers Collaborative, fans can experience these larger than life characters as they team-up, mash-up, and meet up with other characters, teams and people who share this same special quality. It is a world of constant change where things are not what they seem.

The Gigawatt figure is available now for pre-order at walmart.com with only 1,985 pieces available that feature an exclusive, limited edition numbered package in honor of the 35th anniversary of the first film’s release – July 3, 1985. A second variant release of the figure will be available starting October 1, 2020 via HasbroPulse.com and select retailers around the world; part one of the comic book also will be available October 1, wherever comic books are sold.

Todd McFarlane Launches First-Ever Masterworks Spawn Kickstarter

In 1992, the very first Spawn comic book hit the shelves setting a sales record for an independent comic book. A few years later, in 1995, the first Spawn action figure was released to critical acclaim and helped usher in a whole new way of giving you detail and ‘art’ to your action figures.

Now, twenty-five years later, Todd McFarlane is joining forces with Kickstarter to deliver an updated version of that original 1995 Spawn Action Figure and Comic release. The new Original Spawn Action Figure and Comic Remastered (2020) figure will be 7-inches tall and come with a huge folding cape and weapon. The articulation in this version will be more than double what the original action figure had, and the included comic cover will be remastered by the international award-winning artist and creator of the Spawn character, Todd McFarlane.

This newly remastered Original Spawn Action Figure and Comic (2020) version will come in a collector box with a slipcover to help preserve the condition of the figure, comic, and packaging. And speaking of the actual blister packaging, it will mimic the original design from the classic action figure of 1995, though upgrades will be all across the final product. 

A new resealable shell will be used so that you may take out your Spawn Action Figure and Comic for display, but also be able to return them both into their packaging as you have never opened it in the first place!

Finally, if you choose, you can get an autograph by Todd McFarlane himself. Todd will be personally signing a nameplate that can be used for display with your Spawn Action Figure and Comic. And each autographed item will also come with a bonus weapon: A reimagining, hyper-detailed updated version of the wooden plank weapon from that original Spawn Action Figure from 1995.

To simplify this offering, there will be only four levels: A Classic costume version. A Modern costume version (with new head), an Artist Proof (what we’re calling the ‘black & white), and lastly, the 3-Pack bundle which will include a Classic, Modern and Black & White figure. The latter two figures are getting new head sculpt! The first three levels will be offered with or without an autograph while the 3-Pack will only be offered with an autograph. And each of the single figures will have a new never-seen-before cover remastered by Todd McFarlane himself. The backing levels range from $40 to $160 based on the offerings.

This is your chance to get in on history as it repeats itself in this remastered version of the action figure and Comic that helped changed the industry of action figures itself. 

The Original Spawn Action Figure and Comic Remastered (2020) Kickstarter campaign is now live HERE.
