J Balvin And Hasbro Team Up For New Music Themed ‘Transformers’ Figure

by Gary Catig

It’s looking like Jurassic Park isn’t the only collaboration Hasbro has for its Transformers brand. The toy company is working with NTWRK, North America’s premiere livestream shopping platform for a music themed item.

The J Balvin Mash-Up, J Balvintron 3-Pack is on its way. J Balvin is a Reggaeton star and one of the most influential and successful Latin artists. This collection has a big Soundwave feel to it including Ravage and Buzzsaw inspirations. It makes sense because of the musical connection. Check out the description below.

“Sound waves combine in this Transformers-J Balvin mash-up pack! “Reggaeton’s global ambassador” joins the Decepticons as the Transformers robot, J Balvintron. This Decepticon wields the power of rhythm to crush his enemies! The 7-inch-tall Soundwave-inspired figure converts into cassette player mode in 6 steps and features deco and details inspired by J Balvin – including packaging inspired by J Balvin’s rainbow color scheme and his iconic smiley face icon with lightning bolt eyes. He comes with two mini cassette figures, with deco inspired by albums “Energia” and “Vibras”. The Energia Buzzsaw converts to condor mode in 4 steps, and Vibras Stripes converts to tiger mode in 3 steps. The figure also includes a blaster accessory and two rainbow blast effects.”

The J Balvintron 3-Pack will retail for $69.99 with an expected release date of October 1, 2020.
