Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff?

The Planet Iacon facebook page has shared an image that reveals a new upcoming Transformers line from Takara Tomy, K-On Crossovers! Transformers characters that transform into various musical instruments. The image reveals silhouettes of a guitar, bass guitar, drum set, and key board, along with four robots. The text mentions Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ratchet, and Ironhide, but doesn't specify who transformers into what. There will also be an associated anime called Hen-K. Image mirrored below.
They're transforming accessories for K-ON! called Hen-K!, but you probably knew that already. The print in the boxes showing the silhouettes is too small for me to read properly, and my ability to read Kanji is junk.
so do they get an instrument instead of a weapon? because I would love to have a prime playing a bass guitar.

Oh, that explains why I recognised HftD Brimstone's legs in the drumset. Now that we know it's a fake, it's easy to recognise DotM Legion Bumblebee as the keyboard, RotF Legend Optimus as the guitar and Legion Topspin as the bass
