TF SDCC 2014 Exclusive: Knights of Unicron!

06.05.2014 – The 1980s was the advent of glam rock and it was also the era where Transformers was first introduced.

You put two together and it might come out something outlandishly insane at the same time breaking out the normal routine.

Hasbro’s design team must have been the kids who grew up listening to glam rock.

Maybe it’s also that the soundtrack from the 1986 Transformers: The Movie might also have something to do with the release of the exclusive for this SDCC 2014.

Indeed glam rock has taken over and turned your favorite Transformers characters into something you’ve never imagine before. They became rock stars from that particular era and Entertainment Tonight Exclusive Report has the exclusive first look on the famous robots in disguise.

With the height of the latest live action film in Transformers Age of Extinction to be shown in Philippine cinemas on June 25, 2014 this will be something for the uber-Transformers Fan who will be heading to San Diego Comic Con in July.

The craziest concepts that Hasbro unveiled via ET Online certainly will give hardcore fans something to take home with this Exclusive Comic-Con Edition.

Dated September 17, 1984, imagine you were there for the band's "One Night Only" reunion gig at Iacon Stadium on Cybertron. Sold Out, of course!

In honor of the 30th anniversary of the Transformers brand, this Special Edition collector's set transformers your favorite characters -- Optimus Prime, Megatron, Smooth Jazz and Soundwave -- as you've never seen them before: hard-rockin' robots in the universe's greatest band, the Knights of Unicron! Also joining the tour are Laserbeak, who converts into a note-shredding electric guitar, and Ratbat, who converts into the funkiest keytar this side of Cybertron.

The Transformers 30th Anniversary Tour Edition Action Figure Set is packaged in a concert-cool "roadie case," packed with special edition posters, stickers, a concert ticket, All-Access VIP pass, and tell-all history booklet depicting the journey of the Knights of Unicron, from their humble beginnings and formation to their stellar hits and "look" (glam rock deco, metal band hair), band infighting (the titanic egos that once tore them apart), and triumphant return to the stage.

With KISS and Iron Maiden-inspired album art (and perhaps a little Spinal Tap thrown in for good measure), the Knights record Look What the Bot Dragged In features such smirk-inducing tune names as Circuit Breaker, Laser Phaser and Rust Without You. (Ages: 8 & up/Approx. Retail Price: $184.99)

The set will be available at Booth #3329 at Comic-Con International in San Diego, as well as after the event on Hasbro Toy Shop.
