What do you call a Glam rock band mixed with your favorite Transformers characters? Well its called Knights of Unicron featuring your favorite Transformers dressed as an iconic Glam Rock bands in the '80s.

The official images first revealed on Entertainment Tonight and I have to admit this is one of the weirdest sets that Hasbro have come up with in celebration of Transformers' 30th Anniversary and the set will be released as a San Diego Comic Con exclusive.

This out of this world exclusive features recolored figures from War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron figures such as FOC Optimus Prime, FOC "Smooth" Jazz, WFC Megatron and WFC Soundwave, all featured with some wild pimpin' Glam rock paint accents. Accessories include Laserbeak and Ratbat figures, both came from TF Animated line with Ratbat was first time released in US (originally exclusive in Japan as Ratbat was cancelled along with TFA Soundblaster in the US market), and rock accessories like microphone, long hair attachments and armbands to make them more GLAMorous, get it?

Here's a little info about the set:

Dated September 17, 1984, imagine you were there for the band's "One Night Only" reunion gig at Iacon Stadium on Cybertron. Sold Out, of course!

In honor of the 30th anniversary of the Transformers brand, this Special Edition collector's set transformers your favorite characters -- Optimus Prime, Megatron, Smooth Jazz and Soundwave -- as you've never seen them before: hard-rockin' robots in the universe's greatest band, the Knights of Unicron! 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 Transformers 30th Anniversary Tour Edition Action Figure Set is packaged in a concert-cool "roadie case," packed with special edition posters, stickers, a concert ticket, All-Access VIP pass, and tell-all history booklet depicting the journey of the Knights of Unicron, from their humble beginnings and formation to their stellar hits and "look" (glam rock deco, metal band hair), band infighting (the titanic egos that once tore them apart), and triumphant return to the stage. With KISS and Iron Maiden-inspired album art (and perhaps a little Spinal Tap thrown in for good measure), the Knights record Look What the Bot Dragged In features such smirk-inducing tune names as Circuit Breaker, Laser Phaser and Rust Without You.

This exclusive will be on sale at Booth #3329 at San Diego Comic-Con International, and also will be sold via Hasbro Toy Shop. The SDCC Knights of Unicron is priced at USD184.99 Thanks to TFW2005 for this ROCK ON news.
