Maverick is back! Specifically, the Transformers Collaborative Top Gun mash-up, Maverick, who returns to store shelves ahead of the long-delayed release of the Top Gun remake (now a 2022 film!). Today is Top Gun Day, and along with that comes the official announcement of this Walmart exclusive, reissued with updated packaging and accessories.
More info in the official product description below:
Transformers: Collaborative: Top Gun Mash-Up, Maverick Robot
(Ages 8 and Up/ Approx. Retail Price: $44.99/ Available: October 2022)
Worlds collide in this TRANSFORMERS-Top Gun mash-up pack! The iconic Grumman F-14 Tomcat jet from the original Top Gun film is a TRANSFORMERS robot, called MAVERICK (not to be confused with that other guy)! Who makes a better wingman than a TRANSFORMERS robot? MAVERICK stands at 7 inches in robot mode and can convert from robot to classic Grumman F-14 Tomcat jet mode in 25 steps. He includes a screen-inspired miniature motorcycle accessory. This bot is always ready to go vertical in jet mode. This Maverick robot figure also features folding jet wings, movie-inspired details, a helmet design inspired by the 2022 Top Gun: Maverick film, and 4 missile accessories that can be mounted on the figure’s arms in robot mode, and under wings in jet mode.
TRANSFORMERS robots have always been MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE, but now, through the TRANSFORMERS Collaborative, fans can experience these larger than life characters as they team-up, mash-up, and meet up with other characters, teams, and people who share this same special quality. Available for pre-order July 21 exclusively at Walmart.com
