Hasbro has pulled out all the stops for NYCC this year, with a ton of reveals across their brands. Earlier in the week we got a preview of War For Cybertron: Earthrise…but now we’ve seen a ton more.
Earthrise is the second part of the War For Cybertron story that started with Siege. Now the Autobots and Decepticons have left Cybertron in pursuit of the Allspark. With the highly advanced A.I.R. (Adaptable Interconnection Retrofitter) Locks system, the fighters don’t head to the battlefield — they become it. Bots capable of converting into Modular Battle Stations can A.I.R.-Lock together in custom configurations to fit the needs of battle. As
the battle rages through space, success depends on who can best adapt to the battlefield beyond. But it’s not just the battlefield that commands adaptability. Allegiances can shift just as rapidly, with a new Mercenary faction introduced into the Earthrise world alongside the Autobots and Decepticons.
Joining the previous teased Optimus Prime, Grapple and Micromaster Hot Rod Patrol, today Hasbro shared the Battle Masters Soundbarrier, the Micromaster Military Patrol, a deluxe Hoist, a deluxe Cliffjumper, a deluxe Wheeljack, and a new Earthly alt mode Starscream. All of these will be on shelves around March of 2020, but are availble for pre-order now on HasbroPulse and other retailers.
