The seven-inch-tall, Soundwave-inspired figure converts into cassette player mode in six steps and features deco and details inspired by J Balvin – including packaging inspired by his rainbow color scheme and iconic smiley face icon with lightning bolt eyes. He comes with two mini cassette figures, with deco inspired by the albums
Buzzsaw converts to condor mode in four steps, and
Stripes converts to tiger mode in three steps. The figure also includes a blaster accessory and two rainbow blast effects.
Balvin, a “Transformers” fan who watched the classic G1 animated series as a child, had a huge part in making this unique collaboration happen, from his love for tigers, which inspired one of the mini-cassette figures with a strong big cat resemblance, to naming the figure J Balvintron.
The J Balvin collaboration is the first music partnership
The figure will be available for pre-order beginning July 13 at 12 pm EST on the
platform during a live episode that will feature members of the Hasbro design team.
