Living in Australia and not feeling the love of Hasbro Pulse and their offering of Gigawatt?

Well, you can save yourself the hassle of ordering from overseas because EB Games have just listed Gigawatt for pre-order!

Transformers News: Gigawatt Australian Preorders Live

But wait, there's more!*

Continuing with tradition, Zing have also listed Gigawatt for pre-order.

Both EB Games and Zing are offering Gigawatt for sixty-nine dollary doos with a $10 deposit.

Both sites list Gigawatt being released this coming December, hopefully in time for my birthday.

EB Games and Zing's listings follow a brief appearance by Gigawatt on Amazon Australia which quickly sold out.

Thanks! Now I could snatch that preorder. It's the same price as Ecto-1 so I assume it will be roughly the same size. Too bad I can't use my EDGE Platimun card to get the 10% off in the online store. It only work in physical stores.

Regardless, better safe than sorry.

I just canceled my preorder for Maverick -- the volleyball was really the only reason I wanted him in the first place :P

But I feel lucky I checked HasbroPulse the other morning for Gigawatt! But I see he's actually still available (to the US) online at Target and Walmart (for ~$30). I immediately canceled my reservation with tfsource once I got confirmation from Pulse he was on-order. Those tinted windows make him look perfect, to me. I can't wait to have him alongside Ectotron -- as far as I'm concerned, there aren't any other 80s vehicular icons that I need to satisfy for this particular itch. ;)

Gigawatt's a Deluxe, retooled from Siege Sideswipe. Ectotron was a Voyager, taking partial engineering from CW Hot Spot.

Well, it make him way more expensive then. It's 60$CAN plus taxes. At least it's free shipping and it make it ironically way less expensive than if I'd ordered it from Pulse.

I find Gigawatt way better than Ectotron because he transform properly, unlike Ecto who just wear the whole car as a backpack.

Cancelled my TFSource preorder to grab it from EBGames. Good tip, it came out to be a little cheaper.

That exchange rate and shipping price is not very forgiving when ordering from the USA.

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, Omegatron, has been on touch, letting us know that a reddit user has not only gotten their hands on the forthcoming Transformers x Back To The Future collaboration figure Gigawatt, but also uploaded a video review of the figure!

The figure uses the engineering of Deluxe Class Siege Sideswipe the same way that the Transformers x Ghostbusters Ectotron used Combiner Wars Voyager Class Hot Spot as a base.

This was the image posted on Reddit by user Soraboo.

This is then the video review they uploaded to YouTube, using the username Matt in Japan.



What do you think of Gigawatt? Have you secured a preorder for him? Or are you leaving him alone? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

The reviewer spend almost 10 minutes on the box and paper, but he completely skip the transformation.

Is it just me or does it look like it was 3D printed. The horizontal lines on the hood look like 3D printed toys. I kind of hope the release does not have that. I would be kind of bummed. Still waiting for mine >:oP

Out of curiosity, have you seen a DMC DeLorean in person before? It has an stainless steel brushed metal look to it, which is what this toy is replicating. You want it to have that look.

I have only seen the one they staged at the Puente Hills Mall (AKA Twin Pines Mall) on October 20,2015. I was only hoping he did not get taken by someone at a flea market. The review from Mr Stan said the same thing. Kind of a bummer for me, but nothing I can't fix with my mill to smooth out every surface. I can't wait :BANG_HEAD:

For once, Prime VS Prime was not the first.
But his video review is definitely better than the "Reddit guy".

Greetings Seibertronians! We've got more brand new video reviews of the forthcoming Back to the Future x Transformers crossover figure, Gigawatt! Which appears to have started to turn up in collectors hands.

The first new review was shared by fellow Seibertron user, -Kanrabat-, and was created by fellow Seibertron user, and YouTube toy reviewer, PrimeVsPrime.



The second comes to us from another Seibertron user, and YouTube toy reviewer, Chuckdawg1999, who also has this to say about the figure:

Chuckdawg1999 wrote:I really dig these collaborations between Hasbro and other pop-culture entities. Gigawatt celebrates the 35th anniversary of the first Back To The Future film, yes it's been that long. Utilizing the core of Siege Sideswipe Gigawatt really encompasses the heart of Mr. DeLorean's modified automobile. I highly recommend the figure for Transformer and Back To The Future fans.




What do you think of these reviews? Did you manage to secure a preorder? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I'd love for the next transformers collaboration to have four teenage mutant ninja robots that transform into turtles

That would actually be brilliant since they could just repaint the same mold 4x with a set of weapons.
