NIKE LAUNCHES CALVIN JOHNSON'S CJ81 COLLECTION INSPIRED BY MEGATRONNike celebrates a long-standing weekend of football and an athlete that has truly transformed the game.
NOVEMBER 21, 2012
In celebration of Thanksgiving weekend, Nike celebrates a long-standing weekend of football and an athlete that has truly transformed the game. The Nike CJ81 Collection Inspired by Megatron speaks to WR Calvin Johnson’s rare combination of physical talent and mental toughness. This menacing combination creates a prototypical specimen that undoubtedly deserves a moniker like Megatron. Much like the fictional character, Johnson relies on his uncanny ability to pull out an arsenal of physical strengths or “weapons” based on anything he encounters on the field.
The collection, inspired by the Hasbro Transformers character created in 1984, features iconic Nike silhouettes across lifestyle, training and performance including the CJ81 Nike Air Max Flyposite, CJ81 Nike Huarache Free Shield, CJ81 Nike Vapor Jet Glove 2.0, CJ81 Nike Vapor Football Sock, CJ81 Nike True Adjustable Hat, and the CJ81 Nike KO Hoody.
Merging the old and new, the traditional Transformers grid pattern and colors of black, silver, purple and blue from the original Megatron packaging, help highlight the CJ81 logo design.
The limited collection will be available starting November 23 at several Nike retail locations as well as Nike Yardline at Champs Sports and Eastbay online.

Weird. I mean good on TF/Nike for the effort, but it's just done in such an odd way. It's almost like a knock-off collection instead of a licensed collabo piece.

I know there are people on here who like to whine and complain. the faction symbol is actually a a football helmet with the facemask and eye shield. I think that it serves it's purpose and actually looks fine if you know about sports and know what you are looking at!
