They're back! After two years, TRANSFORMERS re-emerge with Generation II figures. While some of these figures are re-releases of older figures with new paint jobs, there are plenty of new characters as well. And some special features, too: the new OPTIMUS PRIME comes with electronic sounds and phrases; the small AUTOBOT Cars and DECEPTICON Jets come with engines that serve as weapons in robot mode; and Color-Changing Cars do just that - they change color when you dip them in water!
The animated TV show, complete with computerized enhancements, returns to the airwaves and creates excitement for the next generation of figures. Also hitting the stores is a new 12-issue comic book series, in which the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS team up to fight a hoard of Cybertronian villains, as well as a mysterious galactic entity bent on absorbing everything in its path!
Also released: Laser OPTIMUS PRIME, a large figure with light-up weapons and air-powered rocket launchers.
