This will be Hasbro’s first-ever 3-3/4 inch action figure from the Transformers cartoon. And she’s a special one:
Fans of the Transformers franchise will recognize Marissa as the Earth Defense Command (EDC) pilot from season 3 of the original Transformers cartoon. What G.I. Joe fans will recognize is the name, “Faireborn”. As Season 3 of the Transformers series took place a couple decades AFTER G.I. Joe, this crossover character was in fact, as intended by Story Editor Flint Dille who worked on both Transformers and G.I Joe, the daughter of G.I. Joe members Flint and Lady Jaye!
Marissa will come with Autobot Afterburner, and be available for club members to order in spring. This feels like the start of a good trend – who should they do in this format next?
