The image mirrored below is of a "Limited Edition" version of Gigawatt, with 1,985 pieces available starting today at approximately 1 PM EDT on Walmart.com. The link for this currently returns an error page, but is reported by the Mashable article as being here: https://www.walmart.com/ip/TRA-GEN-PROJ ... /504056937
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.
Good luck to all the Seibertronians looking to score a preorder for the limited edition Gigawatt this afternoon, and keep it here at Seibertron.com for all the latest Transformers news!

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

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.

Well, we know there's also a Top Gun one coming.

"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 am guessing just a second general run maybe? They state sold at hasbro pulse.

They say in the article at the bottom that they had the wrong date before, and today is the new correct date.
...still not live though

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.
