Optimus Prime is Now a Rock Star

Rupinder forwarded this news about the Transformers 30th Anniversary Tour Edition which features Optimus Prime, Megatron, Soundwave and Smooth Jazz as members of a glam metal band called Knights of Unicron.  Yes, “Unicron.”

I quote: “Also joining the tour are LASERBEAK, who converts into a note-shredding electric guitar and RATBAT, who converts into the funkiest keytar this side of CYBERTRON. The entire set is packaged in an amazing “roadie case,” including special edition posters, stickers, and tell-all history booklet depicting the hardest-rocking band in the history of CYBERTRON!”
