Via Mashable we have the first images of the Transformers Collaborative Back to the Future crossover toy, Gigawatt. Gigawatt looks to share many parts and have similar engineering to the War for Cybertron Siege Sideswipe molding, similar to how Ectotron shared elements with Combiner Wars' Hot Spot (among others.)

Another version of Gigawatt, for which there are no images thus far, will be made available on October 1st through Hasbro Pulse and other unspecified retail channels.

Additionally, a four-issue crossover comic from IDW Publishing will indeed be happening. No details other than its existence and a pair of cover images were available at this time. Those and more images of the toy are mirrored below.

That all chest look isnt great and inside the windshield mess but kind of like it, definitely feels like a Mr Men cross over due soon.

*what's the price on this? Half expecting it to be the price of a titan.

Yes!! Bring on more crossovers, I seriously cannot get enough. I really hope this trend continues with more 80's/scifi franchises. Jaws, Predator, Aliens, Men in Black, the list is nearly endless. Any franchise involving any kind of iconic vehicle/machinery.

That windshield looks a bit messy, but it looks like a small price to pay for all the movie-accurate things this guy can do. The paint deco is perfect though. The figure just wouldn't have worked if they used a basic grey plastic, that airbrushing looks great.

Also, his face looks distinctly like Maccadam from Cyberverse interestingly enough.

At first I wasn't 100% sold on this (granted it was like 99% sold :lol: ), then I saw it had the hover mode and Mr. Fusion and now I'm totally not risking not getting this guy. I hope we get more crossovers, because this line is doing a lot of weird and fun stuff

"You built a time machine out of an Autobot?"

I definitely seem Sideswipe in the mold and the wheels look a bit Cliffjumper-y.
Since Hasbro owns MASK how about a few transformers with MASK functionality. Switchblade, Thunderhawk Rhino and the rest. You can make it the Battle of Boulder Hill or something.

I love how this can be both versions of the care from the first and the second/third movies. I also like how the mr fusion plugs onto the back of what looks like the siege optimus prime gun for his weapon.

I'm on board with this and the comic I've got faith after the Ghostbusters crossover. As for gigawatt being a Sideswipe retool, it works for me, I've got no problems. Though I'm curious as to what's going to be different with the other version in October :-?

Get your Astrotrain out and play Part 3 :lol:

Great stuff. Was expecting a retool but this is awesome.

The movie dates are listed on his chest, lightning rod, Mr. Fusion, flight mode, Flux Capacitor...fluxing...Someone hand me a towel I’m covered in fanservice....

They say in the article at the bottom that they had the wrong date before, and today is the new correct date.

My body is ready!

I'll try for the limited edition, whatever it is, since I'm a big BttF and TF fan. Maybe I'll get a regular release too to take out of the box. I usually don't do MISB, but this time I may.

The chest is really wide. But the flux capacitor being there is fantastic.

Now, how many are gonna fight over whether it should be spoken like the more movie-accurate "Jiggawatt" or the more-widely-used-in-real-life "Ghiggawatt"? :P
