Who better, indeed, to work with the brand that gave us Robots in Disguise than a company called Disguise, Inc.?
The costume-making brand recently announced that they have secured the global rights to produce costumes and accessories based on Hasbro’s newest live-action film, which hit theaters earlier this month. The company has years of considerable experience in designing officially-licensed Transformers costumes and gear, and will bring that expertise to producing costumes, masks, and such for new and old faces alike, from Optimus Prime to Cheetor to Rhinox to Optimus Primal.
President and GM Tara Cortner is eager to see the company once again with the toymaker, saying, “Disguise is immensely proud of our long-standing relationship with Hasbro, having collaborated on Transformers for several decades and achieving consistent success at retail year after year.”
Cortner adds, “I’m confident the success of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will make the costumes a must-have for dress-up this year around the globe. We look forward to continuing to work with Hasbro and bringing these beloved characters to life for years to come.”
