A look at Has­bro’s Trans­form­ers: The Last Knight toys.

HWM (Malaysia) - - SPECIAL - by Ian Chee

The Trans­form­ers fran­chise has al­ways been one to go hand in hand with toys, be it the an­i­mated se­ries back in the 90’s or the block­buster movies of to­day. And with the lat­est film – the fifth in the se­ries – com­ing to cin­e­mas on June 22, it’s as good a time as any to put your own imag­i­na­tion to work as you re­live – or even reimag­ine – the in­tense ac­tion and nail-bit­ing mo­ments with Has­bro’s Trans­form­ers:

The Last Knight toys and mer­chan­dise.


Op­ti­mus Prime Voice Changer hel­met It’s one thing to have mem­o­ries of a char­ac­ter’s per­sona in the film, and an­other en­tirely to em­body it. And for that, there’s the Op­ti­mus Prime Voice Changer hel­met. Put on this First Edi­tion Col­lectible hel­met, and speak with the voice of Au­to­bot leader Op­ti­mus Prime, lead­ing them onto a vic­tory march of your own.

The hel­met fea­tures a voice chang­ing de­vice that lets oth­ers hear the voice of Op­ti­mus Prime in­stead of your own when you don it, giv­ing you his voice in ad­di­tion to his vis­age. Voice changer aside, there are also 21 button-ac­ti­vated Trans­form­ers sound ef­fects and phrases. You don’t have to worry about size ei­ther, as the hel­met comes with ad­justable straps to let you find the best and most com­fort­able fit for you.


Of course, a Trans­form­ers fig­ure would de­serve the name only if it can trans­form be­tween two forms just as its sil­ver screen coun­ter­part. And Has­bro has got you cov­ered, on both sides of the war. Some are re­turn­ing char­ac­ters that you’ll rec­og­nize from pre­vi­ous films, while some are mak­ing new ap­pear­ances.

The Premier Edi­tion fig­ures in­clude Bum­ble­bee, Drift, Sqweeks, Grim­lock, and Op­ti­mus Prime rep­re­sent­ing the Au­to­bots, as well as Barricade, Berserker, and Megatron for De­cep­ti­cons. Each of th­ese are metic­u­lously de­signed with de­tails to match their in-movie look, and are ar­tic­u­late enough for you to pose them ac­cord­ing to your fa­vorite bat­tle scenes, or even some that you’ve come up with in your imag­i­na­tion.

With Op­ti­mus Prime play­ing a greater role than ever be­fore in Trans­form­ers: The

Last Knight, he is avail­able in two vari­ants – one in stan­dard col­ors, and an­other in his Shadow Spark look.

Trans­for­ma­tion be­tween their two forms are sim­ple and quick, rang­ing from 10 steps for the sim­plest, to 30 for the most com­plex, which isn’t re­ally all that dif­fi­cult ei­ther. Each comes with ad­di­tional ac­ces­sories in the form of weapons that they use in the film.
