The Transformers will once again grace the screen later this year in Transformers: The Last Knight, but kids will also have a chance to see them at Build-A-Bear Workshops around the country.
Build-A-Bear Workshop has announced the new Transformers collection, which features a Make Your Own Optimus Prime and a Make Your Own Bumblebee. There are also Bumblebee and Optimus Prime costumes for your existing bears, but the coolest features come with the Make Your Own versions. Both of these include a feature that allows you to change them from Bear to Bot by flipping the face. Even better, the Bears have joints so you can pose them in more robotic poses. The line also includes Transformers PJs, a hoodie, slippers, and a 6 in 1 sounds chip. You can find the official descriptions and prices below, and the line can be viewed in the gallery. The Transformer Bears are in stores now and available here.
