Hasbro’s ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ Press Kit Rolls into CA HQ

A number of awesome packages come off the mail truck at the ComicsAlliance team’s respective headquarters, but Hasbro’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon (in theaters today) press kit is the first I’ve gotten that actually was a truck — or a truck’s trailer, at least. Optimus Prime’s trailer quickly transformed from mere box to a portal of toy goodness in my clutches after it arrived, revealing a MechTech Sentinel Prime, an Optimus Prime Robo Power Cine-Mask equipped with 3-D lenses and other goodies including a t-shirt. Check out the unboxing after the jump.Sentinel Prime’s got a pretty hardcore transformation process between his robot and fire truck modes, while the smaller-scale Bumblebee and Optimus Prime toys demonstrate concepts new to Dark of the Moon including a “Mechtech” weaponized vehicle function similar to the “Stealth Force” component in Activision’s videogame prelude and Optimus’ upcoming flying capabilities.

Even though I would need a version roughly three times its current kid-friendly size to actually take advantage of its tech, I think Hasbro’s Optimus Prime Robo Power Cine-Mask that uses RealID lenses is a lot of fun. I’ve felt pretty burned by what’s gone down in the Michael Bay Transformers films up to this point (despite digging a number of the toys), but for those earnestly entering the franchise, a mask like this is a cool example of toy form meeting movie function. Since I can’t wear it myself, however, I’ll be introducing Sentinel Prime to my pug while she shuns my enthusiastic, but completely awful Leonard Nimoy impression.
