Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a film which has an associated toy line released in 2011 by Hasbro (Takara Tomy in Japan).[1] The film, and thus the toy line, is based on the original Transformers media franchise. The first toy in this line is Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime, which was released on March 2011. The official launch date of the toy line was May 16, 2011.

The toy line was followed by the Movie Trilogy line in 2012.

Mech Tech Weapons System[edit]

Mech Tech Weapons System is a gimmick available on selected Deluxe, Voyager, Human Alliance and Leader Class figures. Each figure comes with an oversized blaster that transforms into a different weapon using a spring-loaded mechanism. Only the Voyager Class, Deluxe Starscream's, and Deluxe Laserbeak's weapons have locking mechanisms to keep their secondary forms in place. In addition, the figures have multiple hardpoints on their body panels to place their weapons anywhere or add more weapons for enhanced customization.

Cyberverse is a new sub-line in this toy series.

A replacement of the Scout Class line, the Commander Class toys are small-sized (about 4 inches tall) figures; many with simple transformation.[3]

Human Alliance consists of a figure with a poseable 2.25" driver figurine that fits on the figure's seats or can be posed to man the figure's auxiliary weapons. The Basic Human Alliance figures are triple-changers, wherein they transform from vehicles to robots or large weapons that can be held by Voyager or Leader Class figures. In the case of Thunderhead and Crosshairs, they transform into power suits that their driver figurine can pilot and in case of Drag Strip, he transforms into a shield that his driver figurine can pilot.
