Since it's Super Bowl weekend, I thought we'd have a little fun with all of the hype by launching two new NFL related galleries done in typical Seibertron.com fashion. You know how that goes: hundreds of highly detailed photos, a multitude of poses, comparison shots galore, excessive amount of package shots, extreme close-up shots ... basically the end-all-be-all most comprehensive Transformers related galleries you'll ever need to see. Calvin Johnson is getting the Seibertron.com gallery treatment!

Late last year, a special edition "Megatron Rises" Nike Air CJ81 Trainer and Action Figure were released around Thanksgiving 2013. The "action figure" was none-other than a Calvin Johnson inspired redeco of Generations Megatron which came packaged in a box shaped like a small shoe box.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with American football and are wondering who this "Calvin Johnson" guy is, Calvin Johnson is an American football wide receiver who plays for the NFL's Detroit Lions. Apparently Calvin Johnson was given the nickname "Megatron" by former Lions wide receiver Roy Williams and the name caught on with fans.

So here we are at the weekend of Super Bowl XLVIII. While the Detroit Lions and Calvin Johnson didn't make it to the Super Bowl, you can enjoy your chances at Super Bowl Squares while watching the Seattle Seahawks take on the Denver Broncos instead. We're still going to have a little football fun this weekend right here at Seibertron.com courtesy of a couple of fun and light-hearted galleries of Calvin "Megatron" Johnson. So before you watch the game this weekend, make sure you check out this photos of Hasbro's Nike CJ81 Calvin Johnson Megatron in all of his purple glory alongside the amazing Playmakers Calvin Johnson action figure from McFarlane Toys.

Without further ado, fellow Transformers and NFL fans alike, Seibertron.com is proud to present galleries of Nike CJ81 Megatron and Playmakers Calvin Johnson!

Let's see if *anyone else* (hint hint) out there notices them, too. :D


Is the anyone else Fran Dresher?

I'm surprised they didn't give Megatron a Lions paint scheme.

They probably didn't because that would (I assume) require paying licensing fees to the team, and maybe to the NFL as well.

I'm sure they would have had to, but they could have just passed the cost off to the consumer. It's not like these were inexpensive to begin with.

This is a better Galvatron than Classics Galvy is... and its my favorite from the mold so far.

I'll probably never see this mold at all in my local stores, but one can hope.

Nice to see this posted in time for the Super Bowl, considering how many times the Lions have been. Oh, WAIT...

Great galleries Ryan! :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

I have to admit, I'd love to get my hands on that version of Megatron. Darn nice color scheme. I actually like it better than any of the other paint apps for that mold which is saying quite a bit since I'm usually a sucker for anything dark grey or black.

Nice choice in releasing this right before the Super Bowl. Here's a thought though. Even though I'm from the Seattle area and a somewhat serious Seahawks fan (may they soundly kick Denvers ASS!) howsabout we raise a little bit of a fuss over Lynch copyrighting the term "Beast Mode". Much as I love my Hawks, I have to call BS on that stunt and think the TF community should file a formal protest and hand the term over to Hasbro and keep it associated with the Maximals. Pisses me off every time I hear it used in conjunction with Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks. Just my little quirk though but I had to throw that rant out there since we were half-way on the subject of the big game.

Too bad these had to come out when Calvin Johnson had a rough season.

P. S. I'll back you up on that, T-Max.
Copyright a Transformers thing. The audacity!
