Hasbro, Linkin Park Release Special Edition Transformers Action Figure

soundwave1_1024x1024In celebration of the Transformers’ 30th anniversary, Hasbro Inc. and rock band Linkin Park have collaborated to create a special edition Linkin Park Soundwave Transformers action figure, available at the SURU store in Los Angeles to mark the brand’s first celebrity-designed Transformers figure in history.

Given the name ‘Generation 1’ or ‘G1’, the fan-favorite, Soundwave Transformer, now features a gold deco treatment and is packaged in a unique cassette tape-inspired box. The band, who has provided songs for three Transformers movies, chose this particular Transformer for its ‘retro-appeal’ and because in the original animated ’80s series, Soundwave converts into a tape deck, has cassette tapes as minions, and battles the Autobots with blasts of sounds, according to Joe Hahn of Linkin Park who grew up as a fan and collector of the brand.

SURU will be the exclusive retailer for this special edition action figure at the SURU store in Los Angeles and online at through October 3. To keep up with more news for the Transformers’ 30th anniversary, check out its Facebook.
