Hero Collector and Hasbro Join Forces
To Bring Transformers Chess To Kickstarter
(London, UK – 13 August, 2021) Hero Collector – award-winning designers and publishers of
high-quality collectibles from across the worlds of pop culture – is joining forces with Hasbro
to launch their first ever Kickstarter campaign: an all-new Transformers Chess Set!
This epic chess set will feature 32 unique game pieces – 16 for the heroic Autobots and 16
for the villainous Decepticons – created specifically for the Kickstarter and modelled on the
classic 1980s Generation One (G1) Transformers animated cartoon! Each model is digitally
sculpted, then cast in metallic resin and painted by hand. The sculpts, which show the
Transformers in their robot form, were developed with Hasbro and are based on the original
animation designs and careful study of the animated series.
