Those are cool. But I'm not paying over 300 bucks for some shoes. Miami is full of shoe scalpers who wait in front of malls at 5:30 AM to buy limited edition sneakers and flip them on e-bay.

They should be made of die cast metal that tarnish easily.

Where are you getting $300.00 from? These shoes are $130.00 per pair.

I remember not too long ago nike's website had this option on that would allow you to customize your own shoes and pick the color for every single part, and I remember I made one that had Tripticon colors but it came up to almost $300 and off course it did not have any Decepticon insignia,,

So, a transfomer painted like a shoe, with littels hoe feet, and now shoes painted like a transformer. Gee, if only TakTom had the designs ((That they'd share)) for a transforming shoe figure...

I live in Miami where urban shoe culture is big business. Scalpers camp out at malls and buy Limited Edition sneakers in any size they can find, then they flip them on e-bay for double or even triple the price. I got friends who are into Jordans, Lebrons, etc. Half of the time, they can never find the hot stuff at retail prices. Im sure there are some less urban areas in middle America where limited edition sneakers are shelf warmers, but not Miami.

The shoe aftermarket is ridiculous. I worked for Footlocker for years and it would drive me nuts when people would scalp shoes when a new one was released.

Why does a Megatron themed shoe have so much red on it?

NikeInc.com have uploade a press release to describe the recently shown Nike Air Megatron Trainer, and the Calvin Johnson Jr Megatron action figure by Hasbro, based on the Generations IDW Deluxe Megatron toy. Check out what they have to say below, including an extensive promotional gallery of the two items!

Nike Football champions the TRANSFORMERS “More Than Meets the Eye” qualities of Calvin Johnson, Jr. by teaming up with Hasbro on the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max. As a special addition, the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max is sold with a first ever Hasbro TRANSFORMERS action figure designed for an athlete in conjunction with a shoe release.

Calvin Johnson, Jr. has redefined the wide-receiver position and become an un-guardable force with a powerful nickname - MEGATRON. Like the fictional TRANSFORMERS DECEPTICON leader, Johnson taps into his superhuman-like skills to push the limits of his position, and the game, in a relentless quest for dominance.

Designed to amplify Johnson’s powerhouse athletic ability when training in the gym and on the turf, the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max features adaptive traction, lockdown support, and Max Air cushioning. In true MEGATRON form, all core attributes of the shoe are energized in a design that marries Johnson’s on-field persona with his human side.

The Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer’s purple upper gives the shoe a robotic, armored look, while the red accents refer back to the secondary color of the action figure. Under the forefoot strap, Johnson’s favorite MEGATRON quote, “Show no mercy,” appears. It’s a reminder of the athletic mindset needed to succeed at the highest level, and the perseverance required to rise to the top. The metallic silver heel of the trainer carries a classic TRANSFORMERS grid pattern as well as a bold, iconic DECEPTICON logo at center.

Produced in collaboration with Hasbro, the 5-inch purple and red TRANSFORMERS MEGATRON action figure inspired by Calvin Johnson mirrors the cues of his signature Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max. The distinctive red cruciform pattern found on the toebox and upper of the trainer are utilized on the arms and feet of the figure. Johnson’s signature appears alongside the iconic DECEPTICON shield on MEGATRON’S chest. In robot mode, the MEGATRON figure is designed to be broad yet agile, and the iconic “wing” jet conversion is meant to mirror Johnson’s speed and power.

Complementing the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, the Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II draws more muted inspiration from the TRANSFORMERS character. A tonal, reflective circuitry board pattern is featured on the medial and lateral quarter panels, and like the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, the DECEPTICON logo appears welded at the heel. Premium Nubuck is used at the overlays, and a glow-in-the-dark outrigger punctuates the sole tooling. The final TRANSFORMERS inspired flourish is a removable strap across the upper.

In further celebration of Johnson’s athletic achievements, the limited edition Megatron Rises 3-Pack incorporates the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, the Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II, and a special edition Nike CJ81 Megatron Elite TD Cleat. Inspired by the ALLSPARK from TRANSFORMERS lore, the box of the Megatron Rises 3-Pack is a unique, converting cube-shaped design. Decorated entirely with original artwork, the lines of the box mimic robotic surfaces and are augmented by triangles, hash marks, x’s, and o’s in reference to the football field and offensive passing plays. The effect is, like Calvin Johnson, “More Than Meets The Eye” - a package that opens to reveal all three shoes and the Hasbro action figure.

Exclusive to the Megatron Rises 3-Pack, The Nike CJ81 Megatron Elite TD shares the same MEGATRON-inspired design as the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max and celebrates Johnson’s true dominance of the receiver position. The cleat combines natural motion with superior lockdown to allow Johnson’s full athletic ability to flourish.

In honor of Johnson’s number, 81 Megatron Rises Packs will release exclusively at 21 Mercer in NYC, select Nike Yardline doors, and Nike.com. The CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max and the Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II will be available at select Nike retail locations and online at nike.com.

I knew this figure would come with the shoes. And man, those shoes may be tacky as hell, but they still appeal to me.

Not only no, but HELL NO.

Madness. This 3 pack and the accompanying figure are going to go down as one of the rarest TF releases in history.

The sneaker-looking one is actually pretty cool, but I wouldn't touch the other two.

Welp, guess I'm not getting the Megatron. I want it, but I can't justify spending as much as they'll end up charging for shoes(not even 3 pairs) that I'll never wear anyway(mostly cause I don't wear closed toe shoes unless I have to).

The 'runner up prize' (which is just the figure) is valued at $40. It's a safe bet that will be final retail cost before taxes/shipping.

Check out the details below, and make sure to check out yesterday's news story for the full gallery!

-- All "Megatron Rises" items will be available as of November 26 with the "Megatron Rises" Box set available a few days earlier in limited quantities only at 21 Mercer in New York City.
-- Outside of the "Megatron Rises" Box set, the special edition Megatron Transformers figure will be sold as a promotional item with the CJ Trainer Max Megatron (Calvin's signature shoe) ONLY. It is only available with purchase of that particular model.

I don't know who Calvin Johnson, Jr. is ,but I will bet you he "WILL BE " the "MVP " in the 2014 "SUPER BOWL" ,NIKE and HASBRO will make sure of that . Yes I am saying that the "SUPER BOWL " will be "RIGGED " to make sure he "WINS " on the celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Transformers ,also the "Age of Extinction " trailer will be played during it . Since I live in Las Vegas I should go to one of the many Sport Books in town and make a bet on it ,I am that sure . I mean unless you are a moron you know that Pro Football (NFL ) is as fake as Pro Wrestling ......what you didn't ....that is so funny :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
But now on to the shoes and figure ,I really like them ,but I doubt I can find them in my size . Last time I went shoe shopping the place I went said that most shoe companies have STOPPED making shoes my size and I would have to buy a women's shoe or a kids . The only brand still doing my size is Converse ,do you know how that made me feel ....well like the small footed ,short ass I am . Now if they make an Acree :BOT: version I will be happy :grin: :lol:

Per that exact quote, the toy comes in the box set *AND* with the regular pair of shoes, the "not sold separately" appears to apply to the cleats and the other shoes in the box set..
