Tag Archive: Fall of Cybertron

As has become the standard for major releases nowadays, Activision has announced a pair of exclusive retail offers today in regards to the August 28th release of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.

Fans who pre-order the game at Amazon will get a unique code for the G2 Bruticus skin that you can use during his single-player campaign mission and that should instantly be recognizable by his iconic hodgepodge color scheme.

Fans who pre-order the game at GameStop will get the bigger bundle though as they get the full G1 Retro Pack that features G1 weapon designs for Megatron to be used in the single player campaign and full G1 Optimus Prime skins that can be used in both the single player and multiplayer modes so you can transform and rollout in classic retro style.

THE BUZZ: This fall Hasbro plans to release a series of Transformers based on the highly anticipated Fall of Cybertron video game, starting with the Combaticons.

EGM’S TAKE: Considering how much merchandise Hasbro loves to stick the Transformers logo on, it is surprising a move like this hasn’t been done sooner. If anything though, this just show how strongly Hasbro supports this game and story that High Moon Studios is crafting. After all, the Transformers originally started as action figures so it is as if the series is coming full circle since this is shaping up to be the greatest Transformers game of all time from what I’ve seen of it. I just hope the next group of Fall of Cybertron action figures features the Dinobots, Metroplex, or maybe even an Insecticon, especially after checking out that awesome metallic finish, which you can see in the pictures below!

What do you folks think of this move? Are you excited for the new action figures? How do you think the Combaticons look? What other Transformers do you hope will be part of this series? Let us know with comments below!
