More On: Transformers: Fall of Cybertron
Back before videogames were the preeminent force shaping the entertainment tastes of young minds, it was cartoons and actions figures, and if you were between the ages of 5 and 13 in the mid-80's, it was probably the Transformers specifically.  

Today, just for those of us that never outgrew that stuff, Hasbro and Activision have announced that a line of action figures will be produced to accompany Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.  The toys will include Blast-Off, Vortex, Brawl, Swindle, and Onslaught, and, and just like in the game, they will be able to combine into the towering Bruticus.  You can check out the pics below.
