Ever since first hearing of it in a product info dump from a retailer computer system, the Energon Igniters line coming up as part of the general toy tie in offerings for Bumblebee: The Movie
has been a big question mark - and even Toy Fair came and went without further details being revealed. Via the unexpected source of Amazon India, we have some product copy that sheds a little light on the matter. Keep reading to find out more.
The lifeblood of transformers robots, energon fuels the epic action on cybertron and beyond. Now, imagine harnessing the transformers energy source with energon igniters figures. Convert this energon igniters power series megatron figure between robot and tank modes in 9 steps. Then plug the energon igniters core (not included) into the vehicle and push down to unleash driving action. This megatron figure stands at a 5-inch scale with eye-catching detailing. Look for the energon igniters core sold with power plus series and nitro series figures (each sold separately). Megatron rolls his optics at the autobots slowing down to protect the humans. With gladiator speed, he converts into tank mode and barrels through obstacles that stand in his way. Harness energon igniters tech and unleash the power within.
Based on this text from the Amazon listing page, it sounds like an iteration of the same concepts as Allspark Tech, The Last Knight
's feature gimmick assortment. In this case, it sounds like the Core accessory will unlock action features in a manner similar to a Mini-Con or Powermaster - a step down from the electronics-focused behavior of the Allspark Tech line. We still have no product images to go along with this info, but we can reasonably expect they won't stray far from what you can currently go look at on shelves everywhere right now.
