July 3rd marks the 35th anniversary of Back to the Future and as a token of celebration, we’re getting an epic crossover!
A brand new Transformer action figure called Gigawatt is launching – fans would identify this as the vehicle from Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown’s flying Delorean time machine. The set includes a pole which Doc utilized to aid Marty in getting back to the future. You also get a clear view of Mr. Fusion which is none other than the garbage-into-fuel machine that we first meet in the first movie.
Fans would be delighted to know that DeLorean’s gull-wing doors are still intact and you can open and close it. You also get to see the Flux Capacitor once the Gigawatt transforms into a robot body.
The action figure will most likely release alongside a comic book run from IDW. The storyline outlines Marty deceiving the ones caught on by the wind of Doc’s time machine. It will hopefully run four issues. In fact, you can view the first issue with a copy of the original Back to the Future poster.
You must know that only 1985 boxes will be disposed and the limited edition will be available for pre-order on Walmart’s website from July 2nd. However, in case you miss it this time around, you can get it on Oct 1st – anniversary of the first time its comic was released.
