Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

Just when you thought the best pairings of films and toys were behind us, [not you, “Battleship,” we’re still holding out for “JENGA,” a film more wooden than the actors in it] Hasbro announces this little gem. Meet new Autobot Maverick!

You can see the full gallery of the new Transformer over on IGN’s website here.

Maverick is based on a classic F-14 Tomcat, and even comes with a damn volleyball. Seriously, we can’t make this up!

If you think it’s odd to have Transformers and “Top Gun” do a joint release, let us remind you that Goose’s son was playing with Starscream in the original film, and that Miles Teller is playing the grown-up version of him in the new Paramount Pictures release film.

Starting at 10am PST July 13th 2020, preorders for Maverick on the Hasbro Pulse website go live.

Top Gun Maverick” is currently slated to hit theaters on December 23rd, 2020.
