In celebration of the long-awaited sequel film Top Gun: Maverick, Hasbro has announced the retro of their Transformers crossover figure. The popular jet, Grumman F-14 Tomcat, is back, but as a from the Transformers bot. This is a simple reissue, but to make things more interesting, Maverick will be updated with new packing as well as new accessories. Hasbro has not revealed either the packaging or what the new accessories are so stay tuned, as either way, this will be a great figure if you missed the first drop. The previous accessories included a screen-inspired motorcycle to show the size of this beauty. As for features, the Transformer x Top Gun will turn from bot to jet in just 25 steps, will stand 7 inches tall, move inspired deco, and equitable missiles for bot and jet mode. Hasbro has stated that Maverick will be a Walmart exclusive (insert rolling eyes) and will be priced at $44.99. Pre-orders are set to go live on July 21, so be prepared for him to go up anytime before that here.
