With the upcoming Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, toy brand Hasbro knows how important it is for fans of the almost 40-year-old entertainment franchise to see an upgrade in a whole range of Hasbro figures for collectors, but the company hasn’t forgotten about the young ones about to take their first steps into the world of Robots in Disguise.
From the usual transformable action figures, kids can take on the role of their favourite Autobot or Maximals with the new 2-in-1 transformable masks, challenge friends with 3-step smash changers, or fight against evil with a transformable 2-in-1 NERF blaster.
We took a deep look inside Hasbro’s vault of all things Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, and have picked out the best toys for your child, be it a blaster, wearable mask, or traditional action figure.
In addition, Hasbro Singapore is also running a social media contest to give away four tickets to Universal Studios Singapore to five winners per month, across May and June. All you have to do is spend a minimum of S$30 on Transformers products from participating retailers from now till 30 June 2023 and submit your entries online for a chance to win each month. More details of the contest can be found on Hasbro Singapore’s Facebook and Instagram posts.
