In what promises to be one of the least-subtle events at South by Southwest Interactive, Hasbro will bring a Transformers-themed event to Mashable House at this year's festival.
The event, which will include a full-sized Bumblebee Transformer, will be an RSVP event taking place Saturday evening with a performance from Mount Holly, performing a song from a Transformers-inspired new music album, "Roll Out." (None of that is made up.)
There will also be themed drinks including the "Marg-a-tron" and the "Bumble-tini."It's all to promote a new game, "Transformers: Earth Wars," which chronicles the ongoing war between Autobots and Decepticons, which as of this writing shows no sign of letting up.
If you're interested in attending, you can RSVP for Mashable's events at this page. It's not clear if these RSVPs will get you into the Transformers party, but it's worth a shot if you're a huge fan.
And in case you're wondering what a Transformers-inspired song sounds like, here's the video for "Roll Out."
@omarg how do we gauge their impact on Friday's downtown traffic? Do they walk over cars? Can uber arrange one for me? So many questions.— Andy Langer (@Andylanger) March 9, 2016
