Just went you thought that the Back To The Future franchise cannot get any wackier and then BOOM...Hasbro dropped a new collaboration that will see the Delorean Time Machine transforming into Gigawatt. Now we know why the car could burn tarmac and travel into the future or past! Hasbro has embraced the eccentric nature of Back To The Future Franchise and roll out this Transformers Generation X Back to the Future Gigawatt! What a fitting name huh!
This latest Transformer can of course transform from the iconic time travelling car to its massive robotic form. So far there is no further details whether this latest giant robot will be an Autobot or a Decpticon. We are still unsure about the power and weapons that it will wield. However one thing we know for sure is that it could time travel which makes it one really sick, formidable, omnipotent Transformer for sure! Sounds like this is a robot which will create a balance in the universe to me.
The Delorean Time Machine can transform into a robot
Essentially, Gigawatt is the Iconic Delorean Time Machine car that Marty McFly and Doc used to drive and turns into the robotic form that we are familiar with such as Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. When Gigawatt is in the automobile mode, it looks like the exact carbon copy of the Delorean Time Machine vehicle. Everything looks surprisingly identical from the mainstay energy reactor to the flux capacitor inside the car. The lightning rod is also present on the top of the car just like in the movie!
Gigawatt Transformer is from Back To The Future
Just like the famous Back to the Future vehicle, this Gigawatt Transformer can also spread its gullwing door in car mode. Want to turn it into a hovercraft? Simply turn the wheels inwards into thrusters and add the Mr. Fusion generator at the back! Voila~it can now hover *imagining* This transformer is not merely for display purposes only. The wheels will allow Gigawatt to roll freely on any surface, making it a fun toy car to play with just like your other Hot Wheels car. The best part is it can be converted into an alien robot!
The 3 dates and times that Marty & Doc time-traveled!
In its robotic alien form, the Transformers Generations X Back to the Future Gigawatt can transform into a robust beast with the unmistakable flux capacitor sticking prominently on its chest. Here's something really, really nice that Hasbro has added: There are 3 different dates below the flux capacitor which each of them indicating the exact time and date that Marty and Doc traveled through time in the movies. I mean these 3 dates alone make this Gigawatt a highly collectible merchandise for the Back To The Future Franchise!
I am going to travel back in time to undo all your mistakes!
Gigawatt will be equipped with its very own giant blaster to shoot any Autobots or Decepticons into pieces. Its lightning rod can actually double up as a whip to strike its opponents. I wonder if the whip could catch lightning and direct it as a beam to zap other robots. Standing at 5.5-inch tall, Gigawatt can convert from its robotic alien form into the Delorean Time Machine car in 17 steps. I am flattered to know that it comes with a relatively affordable price tag of US$29.90 (RM128).
