It's not everyday you get cross promotion of this level. For this holiday season, McDonalds has put together a twelve part connecting train set where the wagons showcase different brands. The train set is called the Holiday Express and here are some of the brands showcased on the wagons:

Transformers Robots in Disguise (with Bumblebee in Robot Mode peeking above the wagon)
Sing
Jurassic Park
Hot Wheels
Minions
My Little Poney
The Life of Secret Pets
Despicable Me
Barbie

Each Happy Meal will come with one train part that can be connected to the others to form a twelve part train once fully collected. It appears that each wagon will have a particular feature activated when the train is rolled on the floor. This promotion will start in December for the US and it is unknown if it will be appearing in other countries at the same time.

Here is an image of the set.

This is the coolest thing that Mcdonalds has come up with in years.

That's quite the variety, but it only represents three companies: Hasbro, Mattel, and Universal Studios (with Illumination Studios).

What about McDonald'a themselves? (Their creepy mascot is in the engine.) For that matter, I'm not sure who the animals on the ferris wheel car belong to, and the caboose doesn't seem to have anything at all.

I thought the McDonald's one was a little obvious since it's their toy. ;)

I think the animals are from Littlest Pet Shop, looks like them, also Hasbro's. They've had a Happy Meal before.

Transformers Cyberverse is rapidly approaching and the promotion has now reached McDonald's.
From the unlikely source of a My Little Pony fan site, we have an image of a Russian ad for upcoming Happy Meal toys. It shows that next month, certain countries will give kids the choice of having an MLP or a Transformers character for their Happy Meal toy. Of course, the Transformers toys do not transform, but with it being now a decade since the last transforming McDonald's toys (Animated in 2008), we are well passed expecting that. Instead, what they will offer is a chibbie/cutesy version of the following Transformers Cyberverse characters:

Optimus Prime
Bumblebee (in vehicle and robot mode)
Starscream
Windblade
Megatron
Grimlock
Shockwave

For those curious, here are the Cutie Mark Crew themed ponies that will be offered as well:

Starlight Glimmer
Applejack
Spike
Twilight Sparkle
Pinkie Pie
Fluttershy
Rarity
Rainbow Dash

These will be available next month in South Korea, Italy and, of course, Russia and may come to other countries later this year.

I can understand the cute ponies somewhat but the Transformers look cringey. Makes me think that most of the older Happy Meal toys I had dimissed probably weren't so bad. And that in itself is bleh

Hey look, the first toy of Cyberverse Windblade, and it's not even in the show's main line.

I guess you are not a fan of the "chibi" craze that plague geek shops for some years now?

Thanks to our very own Survivefan23 we are aware that McDonald's is going to be having Transformers toys in their Happy Meals soon. At Happymeal.com under the 'next happy meal' tab there is an image of Bumblebee: The Movie and My Little Pony toy options. We did see images of Transformers and My Little Pony toys from a Russian fan site. It is worth it to note that in those pictures it shows us Cyberverse toys. They are advertising Bumblebee: The Movie toys rather than Cyberverse right now. We don't know for sure what the new McDonald's toys will look like. It is a mystery right now since neither the Cyberverse TV series or the upcoming movie have haired yet. Have a look and tell us what you think the toys will be like.

Seems a little early doesn't it? These will be out in September I'm guessing and the movie doesn't hit until December. I can understand not releasing these in December when they're more likely to do something Christmas themed and something Halloween themed in October, but what about November? Thanksgiving isn't exactly something they celebrate normally. Then again these were probably planned for May or June for when the movie was supposed to hit, but had to be plugged into the latest available slot.

The next Happy Meal theme in the US was said to be the Transformers: Bumblebee movie, at least for the "boys" toys. As it turns out, fellow Seibertronian xRotorstormx has found these Happy Meal toys today and it turns out these are not specifically for the Bumblebee movie. They are instead Cyberverse themed toys, the same previously found elsewhere in th world. However, for their distribution in th US, McDonalds chose to rebrand them under the Bumblebee movie.

Here are some images below alog with a video (mute it for the sake of your eardrums).

Enjoy!

Here is the line up
Optimus Prime
Bumblebee (in vehicle and robot mode)
Starscream
Windblade
Megatron
Grimlock
Shockwave
