Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, Sabrblade has let us know that Takara Tomy have shared some new pictures of the forthcoming Transformers x Back To The Future collaboration figure, Gigawatt! Accompanying each image was a tweet of information. This is leading up to the moment preorders open for the figure in Japan.

Of course the biggest change that is most noticeably is that the windscreen has been tinted, while in the images seen before, it was clear.

What do you think of this change? Has this improved the figure for you? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Definitely an improvement! The windshield fixes what was probably the only issue with this guy. So where is this pre-order happening? Since we've yet to hear any information on the North American release.

Nice to see they fixed the only downside to the figure. Much better

Looking forward to Gigawatt! BTTF is one of my favorite movie series and like the overall design of him (even if I feel like he should have a hood chest like the Datsuns).

So no word on a release date yet?

Definitely looks better than the so called Walmart release...'nuff said! :VEHI:

For all we know the Walmart limited edition could be the exact same as the standard edition. The only difference as far as I know is a different box and a sticker based on the California license plate it had that says “X of 1985”.

Not crazy about the way the painted on "brushed steel" effect looks, looks like someone hand painted it with clumpy silver paint (and maybe they did and the final figure will look better). Just a regular, good silver coating would be fine.

That does look a bit better. As Emerje said, the attempt at a brushed steel paintjob doesn't look great, but it's better than grey plastic.

YEEEES! So glad that they fixed that windshield! I absolutely loved this concept when it was first revealed, but the initial photos really turned me off.

100% gonna ick this up when it hits canada! :michaelbay:

Greetings Seibertronians! I come with good news and bad news. Good news: fellow Seibertron users LOST Cybertronian and Sean Nolan, have sent us word that preorders for the Transformers x Back To The Future collaboration figure, Gigawatt, have gone live over at Hasbro Pulse! Accompanying the listing is new stock photos, again with the tinted windows.

I said there would be bad news however, and that's the fact that at the time of writing, the preorders are sold out. It is unknown whether more stock will be made available to meet demand or if that was it. Other places also have preorders, such as RobotKingdom, TFSource and for UK fans, InDemandToys have preorders live.

Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, Sabrblade who identified these listings, and Walmart still has preorders available.

Walmart - https://www.walmart.com/ip/154588355

Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B085JRK7T1/

GameStop - https://www.gamestop.com/11102590.html

Are you trying to track down a preorder for this figure? Have you managed to secure one? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

The Pre-orders on Pulse were sold out hours before this post even went live. <.<

Unbelievable.

Well, not really. Whoever handles distribution at Hasbro needs to be beaten with a bat. Repeatedly. :HEADHURTS:

Any clue as to why the hell Amazon is trying to charge $50 when everyone else is at $30?

Thanks Sabrblade! I've edited the article to include these.

They have been informed and are adjusting the price. Question, are there any differences between the toy in this release as opposed to the Walmart exclusive that sold out in 5 nano seconds?

The windows are tinted darker instead of clear, better hiding all the windshield greeble.

Some have also said something about the silver paint on his robot mode chest too, but I can't see what's different about that.
