The Playstation might work better as Ultra Magnus with those shoulder pads.

They should've did this with Soundwave and Blaster, and then made individual games their cassette agents.

yeah that would have worked better. i have the USB hub they made with Blaster where he turns into a toshiba laptop. and also have the Soundwave MP3 player.

Problem is, blaster and Soundwave are recognizable, they're not the faces of the brand. Prime and Megatron are.

But they may make a blaster vs Soundwave set down the line, maybe out of the gamegear and gameboy.

It's interesting (to me anyway) that Prime's the very first PSX model, only released in Japan, with an S-video port built in.

We've seen the upcoming Playstation Optimus Prime from Takara Tomy in multiple images, but not in the official stock photos! Check them out below, mirrored from the Planet Iacon Facebook page, showing off the Sony Playstation PSX from 1990 alt mode as well as the transformation and robot mode.

this is what we have so far:
Genesis = Megatron
PlayStation = Optimus Prime


what i am wondering is what characters would be used for these consoles (and handhelds)
N64= ???
SNES / super Famicom = ???
HMM who would be the SNES : Starscream possibly due to coloration
NES/ Famicom=???
Game Boy family ( original, Pocket, color , advance, Advance SP, Micro, NDS, NDs lite)= ??? ( though who ever it is will have the best alternate mode)

Stupidest concept I have ever seen in my life. Im under the assumption that these things actually work and play vintage games available for download. With that being said, why not make an electric toothbrush that transforms into Bumblebee ?

Sorry these things are stupid looking and kinda ugly. Pass. #-o

Another good example of letting Takara involve too much in this franchise? :roll:

NO.

Ehm, not that I'm buying any of this, but would it not have been better to have Shockwave incarnated in this?

The cable to his armcanon would have made more sense IMHO.

Also, that chest is primed for Shockwave!

its definitely a retarded idea but i love that they actually included the A/V outlets on there. guess they wanted to be acurate!! lol

It's kinda cool TBH. I do love the attention to detail on the PS1 mode. Not sure I'd buy it, but I like it.

The gray plastic color of OPSX vs the black of Megatrondrive really hurts the alt mode, as you can see so much better all the "cracks" where parts line up. Still hella cool, tho.

It would be really neat if these were emulator devices that could play Sega and PSX roms/disc images, but no, they're just straight up high end, expensive transforming action figures. Although, I do recall someone saying Megatron has a working USB port and is probably another Device Label Blaster kinda thing.

Either way, too expensive, too silly for me.

Here's something a little different: a Vine 'review' clip by セガ・サウンド・ターミナル featuring the upcoming Transformers Megadrive Megatron figure, showing off the toy's transformation in full colour and some of the posability in the process. Check it out embedded below!

It's getting hard to resist buying Megadriveatron. His botmode looks to be bigger than I thought.

I want both of these, but the asking price is really, really steep. Not sure I can justify it. :sad:

It might be the small Japanese hands, but despite being a little over seven inches tall (about Voyager size) he looks really big here. I was all ready for him to come out this month but he's been pushed back to November now. :(

i can just imagine the people who work at Sega get fooled by this machine. 8-} i think i would buy it with play-optimus-station-prime and reenact the console wars back in the 90s. or just have them transformed into console mode and put it near my TV.
