Do you feel the need… the need for speed! Hasbro and Paramount Pictures have finally revealed the first-ever TRANSFORMERS-Top Gun collaboration, starring the all-new character MAVERICK.
Clearly named after Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise), this new Autobot takes the form as the iconic Northrop Grumman F-14 Tomcat jet from the original Top Gun film. This nostalgic Top Gun mash-up MAVERICK robot marks a celebratory moment ahead of the highly anticipated sequel to the iconic original film, Top Gun: Maverick, releasing 23 December 2020.
MAVERICK stands at 7 inches tall in robot mode, and can convert from robot to classic Grumman F-14 Tomcat jet mode in 25 steps. He includes a screen-inspired miniature motorcycle accessory and 2 alternate hands that can hold the included volleyball accessory (but of course).
The figure also features folding jet wings, movie-inspired details, including a helmet design inspired by the 2020 Top Gun: Maverick film, and includes 4 missile accessories that can be mounted on figure’s arms in robot mode and under wings in jet mode.
Even the packaging is inspired by the aircraft carrier!
Pre-orders are already up on Hasbro Pulse for US$49.99 and expected to ship on 7 October 2020.
We’ve got to admit, the poster visual looks way better than the actual toy’s look.
