    I'll be considering him a 2.5-changer, like Tracks & Wheeljack Robot/Car/Flying Car.

    i got this from Trnasofmrers Wiki show mr fusion also too back end of the gun comes apart and become mr Fusion.

    The third figure released in the Collaborative line, Gigawatt is an extensive retooling of Siege Sideswipe that transforms into a heavily customized DeLorean, representing the iconic vehicle from the Back to the Future film trilogy. In his vehicle mode, his gull-wing doors can open and close, plus a "lightning rod" can be added to the back to replicate the climax of the first film. He can also be converted to the hovercar mode from the first film's ending (and how it appeared in much of the second film) by adding the "Mr. Fusion" generator to the back and folding his wheels down. The car windows and windshield are translucent dark blue, though initial stock photography specimens depicted these parts as being clear plastic.
    In robot mode, Gigawatt displays a chest-mounted flux capacitor, as well as time circuits which display three dates, each corresponding to the time periods Doc and Marty visited in the first two movies. His knees also feature molded-in (and unpainted) flux capacitors to boot (ha ha). The lightning rod becomes a whip weapon, and the Mr. Fusion can be plugged into the back of his rifle, which bears a distinct resemblance to Siege Optimus Prime's rifle, but is an all-new sculpt.

    That's a pic from back in July when they first showed off the limited run version, @Thundershot was saying he wanted a new pic to confirm that the non exclusive version has Mr. Fusion

    No. Siege Prime could tuck his wheels under the truck for a "hover mode" and that was in no way a triple changer. It's a flight mode. Similar to the Transmetal BW figures who would reveal wings/thrusters but never looked like more than a flying cat or rat with wheels.

    Look forward to taking the 5mm peg on that Mr. Fusion and plugging him in to various other alt modes.

    I just realized that if Kingdom Megatron comes with rubber duckies you can have Giggawat go back in time to the Beast Wars and use his rod-thing to fish for ducks at a fair :lolol

    See now I'm picturing that big Kingdom mural but suddenly Gigawatt pops in like "Oh...uh....excuse me." before peacing out back to 1988.

    With all the time travel shenanigans it would be such a missed opportunity not to see Gigawatt appear in any Kingdom fiction

    Honestly I think Hasbro should make Kingdom all Gigawatt's fault.


    -ZacWilliam, I doubt they'd tie in a special licensed thing that much to a main line but it'd be great timing to do it.

    I'm glad to get the windows fixed, but I can never agree with the sense of entitlement that so many fans have. We SHOULD be happy to get anything at all....

    Are you happy with cold food at a restaurant? Is your boss happy if you just show up?

    There's entitlement and then there's expecting people to do what they're supposed to do.

    I agree with your main point. I don't agree that it applies to toys.


    But let me take a step back for a moment. It's one thing to wish things were better, and even to advocate for it. What a lot of fans do crosses a line.

    It's too bad we can't see into a parallel universe to compare how much of a difference tinting the windows made. All I can tell you is for me it went from "maybe if I'm depressed and need retail therapy" to "when is BBTS putting their listing up so I can order two."

    Edit: Many of Hasbro's design decisions as of late seem to be like an auto dealer putting a really nice car out at the front of the lot and then purposely denting/scratching/breaking some part so you don't get exactly what you want.
