Transformers Generations x Back to the Future Gigawatt from Hasbro


Fans of 1980s pop culture have a new object of desire: Transformers Generations x Back to the Future Gigawatt, from Hasbro.

Since the original movie’s release in 1985, Back to the Future has gone on to inspire sequels, books, comics, a musical, a theme park ride, and arcade games. Now, thanks to Hasbro, Back to the Future crosses over to another pop-culture juggernaut: Transformers.

Transformers Generations x Back to the Future Gigawatt marries two beloved properties from the 1980s. In just 17 movements, the classic Delorean that transported Marty McFly and Doc Brown through time shape shifts into the Gigawatt Transformer, complete with weaponry. This transformer will delight fans of all ages, and classic aspects of each franchise are hidden in the details, just waiting to be discovered.

Revisit Transformers through this classic commercial on the Toy Tales YouTube channel.
