The struggle between good and evil never ends, and this classic conflict continues with the return of the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS! A new animated series returns the action to Earth in the near future; MEGATRON and his evil cohorts arrive with only one goal in mind - destruction! But hidden in the guise of vehicles is a powerful force of goodness determined to defeat the DECEPTICONS and protect the planet - the heroic AUTOBOTS!
The ROBOTS IN DISGUISE line also marks the return of the recognizable vehicle to robot mode change that made the TRANSFORMERS brand so popular in the '80's. This TRANSFORMERS fantasy adds to the possibility that any car on the road, car transport on the highway or fire truck in the station could be a real robot in disguise. The wildly popular line includes COMBINERS, figures that combine together to form larger robots. The figures come in several different themes, including military, construction and trains.
Some of the figures released this year include MEGATRON, with 6 modes; AUTOBOT brothers SIDE BURN, PROWL and X-BRAWN; Military, Construction and Train COMBINERS; and the awesome electronic OPTIMUS PRIME Fire Truck and ULTRA MAGNUS Car Transport, which combine to form OMEGA PRIME, a massive robot!
