Transformers and Top Gun Crossover for Maverick Autobot from Hasbro

Transformers is getting a lot of crossovers lately. We recently saw a collaboration with Back to the Future with the Gigawatt Autobot. Well, this time we are looking to the skies as Top Gun arrives in the Transformers world. That is right, the iconic Grumman F-14 Tomcat Jet is back and with a little Energy magic, he becomes Maverick. The new Hasbro collaboration robot features move inspired details, folding jet wings, and multiple attachable missiles. For accessories, Maverick will get a miniature motorcycle figure from Top Gun. The 7" figure will be able to convert from Transformer to jet in 25 steps. One of the coolest accessories this figure comes with is a volleyball. This perfectly can capture those slow motion games on the beach.

This is a very interesting crossover for Transformers to be a part of. Of course, Top Gun is quite iconic for its jets so joining with one of the biggest transforming robot series is simply a logical step. Top Gun and Transformers fan alike will get a kick out of this figure and pre-orders are already live. The Transformers Generations Top Gun Mash-Up Maverick Robot is priced at $49.99. he is set to fly on over in October 2020 and pre-orders are located here. Will you be flying high with this figure or will it never leave the ground?

Transformers and Top Gun Unite!

"Feel the need… the need for speed! Hasbro, Inc. and Paramount Pictures today revealed the first-ever TRANSFORMERS-Top Gun collaboration, starring the all new character MAVERICK. Not to be confused with Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, this new TRANSFORMERS robot makes an ideal wingman, taking form as the iconic Northrop Grumman F-14 Tomcat® jet from the original Top Gun film. This nostalgic Top Gun mash-up MAVERICK robot marks a celebratory moment ahead of the highly anticipated sequel to the iconic original film, Top Gun: Maverick, releasing December 23, 2020."

"After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy's top aviators, Pete "Maverick" Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: "Rooster," the son of Maverick's late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka "Goose." Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it."

"TRANSFORMERS Autobot MAVERICK stands at 7 inches in robot mode and can convert from robot to classic Northrop Grumman F-14 Tomcat® jet mode in 25 steps (The F-14 Tomcat is a registered trademark of Northrop Grumman, and is used under license). He includes a screen-inspired miniature motorcycle accessory and 2 alternate hands that can hold the included volleyball accessory. This bot is always ready to go vertical in jet mode or dominate a slow-mo volleyball montage in robot mode. This MAVERICK robot figure also features folding jet wings, movie-inspired details, including a helmet design inspired by the 2020 Top Gun: Maverick film, and includes 4 missile accessories that can be mounted on figure's arms in robot mode and under wings in jet mode. Even the packaging is inspired by the aircraft carrier!"
