seriously though they are well designed and look like they accomplish what they want.

Just doesn't do anything for this collector though.

I just noticed that they've got the movie symbols on them instead of the old school Autobot and Decepticon symbols.

The Prime one isnt bad but Megatron isnt that good. His head looks weird.

I'm actually really excited about these. This is the kind of thing that people who aren't into Transformers will think are awesome. It's a whole new take on the "objectformers" aspect of the Transformers. Yes, these are most certainly some oddball items but that's what I like most about them. I most definitely can see why these wouldn't be appealing to a lot of fans. It should be intersting to do galleries of these weird guys.

Wow. And I thought the Transformers line was whored out to the deepest extent in the 80's... if you had told me when I was 8 years old that they would make Transformers shoes that actually transformed into Megatron and Optimus Prime there is no doubt they would have shown up on my christmas list... fast forward 20 years though and somehow at 28 these transforming shoes don't seem very cool... at all.

Not only do they transform into the shoes, but they're wearing them as well! How cool is that?

I gots to get me some Nikes! ;P

They're not horrible, kinda fun looking actually, but I think I'll stick to getting the last of the Classics line I'm missing and the new movie toys instead of these.

From marketing perspective, I agree. From being a big fan/collector, I feel "repeatedly violated" especially after even darth vader or his jet could transform, and the same thing with the pathetic power rangers. I dunno know.

Of all the useless pieces of.......well you get the drift. Why on Earth would someone want to make let alone buy these?

"Transform and Run Out!"

HAHAHAHAHA!!! That's absolutely hilarious! My Big Brother will love these. He's really into Nike Shoes and Transformers... And his B-day is in June these'll be Perfect!

I'm failing to see how these things are even wearable. Wouldn't they just fall apart after running around the block? I can't see how they would be very comfortable either.

I just hope that anyone who buys them are satisfied with their purchase... it will be hard to sell a pair of these USED after a transnerd has put their feet in them. :p
Re: New images of TakaraTomy's Nike Megatron and Optimus Prime (65908)
Posted by Agamemnon on March 27th, 2007 @ 12:01pm CDT
I'm guessing that they are not actually wearable, though I guess I haven't seen it stated one way or the other. Just the practicality alone would preclude these being molded in, what, 12 different sizes?

I like them. They may be stupid and weird, but I like them all the same. Smoooooooooth.

You make perfect sense, although I was going by the shoe size shown on the image. *shrug* I haven't heard one way or the other either.

Posted by Counterpunch on March 27th, 2007 @ 12:27pm CDT
Well, I'd get them, but I'm not allowed to have shoes with laces in them...




nah, I'm just not getting them because I can't buy every piece of TF shit out there.

transformers that wear sneakers, haha. I'll keep them on a show rack and ppl will be like "why do you have unmatching shoes?" i'll lol.

those laces are sweet energon whips. S&M megatron anyone?

What a waste of plastic! Utterly. Puts the SWTF into a new light.

since nike and ipod are teamed up (nike free), and transformers and ipod are teamed up (music label), why not finish the love triangle? The best things come in 3's ;-)

may get prime just to have it but not impressed

I like the way they are both wearing the very shoes they transform into.

makes you wonder if some sort of crazy gestalt has been planning for years - you have rid megatron turns into a hand, megabolt into a head and these new two into shoes.
What disembodied parts coming next?

Wow, these are all kinds of suck. When I saw the initial pics I thought they looked cool, but after seeing the finished product, they make me :SICK:

The Megatron isn't bad for a Megatron figure, although a shoe is an alt mode of questionable use.

What would be amusing is a G1-styled episode produced featuring these shoeformers.

will these be availble at shoe stores like foot locker,etc?

From pics, the boxes look fantastic. The figures leave me cold though. They're the same molds with different colors and heads. Robot modes seem pretty poor to me. I know there are people who are excited about these and all the power to them. These are not up my alley though. I DO want the boxes though. Go figure.
:BOT:

If you could wear the shoes that transform, I wouldn't think twice about buying them. However we cant wear Prime on our feet, so I'll Pass on this grass :P

So I guess that makes Prime a goody one shoe
