*Sings*Transformers… (Oom-oom-ah, Oom-oom-ah) more than meets the eye (Oom-oom-ah, Oom-oom-ah).  /end awesome Transformers music. One of our greatest pastimes has to be sitting in front of our bulky wood-colored TV sets watching the Transformers, singing along to the song, while holding on to dear life the very toys modeled after our robotic idols.

We all know that another Transformers game is coming this year. Transformers: War For Cybertron takes the Autobots and the Decepticons to their home planet where it all began. However, it wouldn’t be “cool” not to release a “great” Transfomers game without the addition of a toy line inspired by it, right? And if anyone grew up with me in the 80’s, we all know just how amazing those toys were.

Hasbro has confirmed to Game Informer that a range of figures based on War For Cybertron’s characters will go on sale later this year. Excuse me while I wipe drool off my face.

No further details, aside from the images provided below depicting Bumblebee and the almighty Optimus Prime, have been provided by Hasbro.  Bumblebee looks awesome… Optimus Prime, though, looks like Fisher Price pimped him out. Whatever the case, it’s Transformers… you know, robots in disguise… Oom-oom-ah?
