El Duque has found an interesting new line of figures on site sponsor BigBadToyStore: Device Label Transformers, which appear to be working computer accessories which transform into iconic Transformer characters.

Blaster turns into a USB Hub
Tigatron turns into a USB stick
Ravage turns into a USB stick
Overkill turns into a laser mouse
Dinobot turns into a laser mouse

Depending on how big and how well done the final products turns out these will probably be my Classics/Universe Blaster and Ravage. Pre-ordered both those guys as well as Overkill.

somebody buy me Blaster & Ravage, I don't think I could convince meself to pay close to $150 bucks for a usb hub and 2 gig flash drive even if I was a millionare. But I really like Blaster & Ravage. :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: damn me being a cheap broke redneck father :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: And the really crappy part is I build and repair computers professionally and Transformers are my only vice now. I gave up drinking, smoking, racing & drugs and I still can't afford my TF hobby. Thank you for listening to my economic whining, I shall repay the favor. :grin:

Woohoo! Now this stuff is worth spending on (ROTF toys look like they can be skipped)! Preordered them all. I should have money by september (probably like december before they actually release these). :grin: :grin: :grin:

And here I thought the Allspark and Optimus Prime USB hubs from 2007 were cool items. These blow those devices out of the water. Man it sucks being broke. Wish the housing market would turn around so I could land some work and piss away, er, um, support my TF habit again.
I'd buy Blaster, Ravage and Overkill in a heartbeat.

I really think that Tigatron looks very slick, and hope that he'll see a repaint into Steeljaw at some point.

Blaster looks equally kick ass, finally a classics Blaster!

Of course all we're seeing right now are the concept sketches. I can't wait until pics of the real figs get leaked.

Blaster, Ravage & Overkill ordered.

I like Blaster's bot mode a lot, but I'm not too keen on his alt mode.

Ravage kicks serious booty!

USB sticks would be sweet for all the old tape bots.
If they got a US release they'd be a lot more affordable.

Must... Get... BLASTER!

OMG, that's awesome! I preordered Ravage straight away. I really hope he's in scale to ML Soundwave too.

Blaster looks realy great too, but I don't collect Blasters so I passed.

Looks very nice to me. My only concern is regarding functionality with the laser mouse types and capacity with the USB types.

Good to see Takara still wants my money!

Blaster looks good, and I'm hoping for a Steeljaw. Interesting choice of characters initially though.

They got my money...A really cool looking set of bots.

Saw this coming...

Now they need to make the Laserbeak, Buzzsaw and Ratbat as Micro SD cards for Soundwave.

Not sure I'll be using these for their intended purpose, but it does say the USB sticks are only 2GB.

Ravage and Blaster look interesting. Shame Ravage is only 2GB, I've already got an 8GB and even that's pretty old.

I'll wait for some proper pics before diving in.

Oh my god these are epic. Not only do they look awesome but they're actually useful items. Im deffinatly getting Ravage and depending on the prices maybe Overkill. Come on what better way to back up my PS3 save data then with a transforming USB drive. Why cant we ever get cool crap like this in america?

Posted by Diem on April 22nd, 2009 @ 7:09am CDT
Yeah, I think I'll have me a Blaster and a Ravage. Not so sure about the laser mice, won't they get all fingerprinty and dusty?
Re: New TF Line from Japan works with your computer - Device Label (913452)
Posted by El Duque on April 22nd, 2009 @ 7:51am CDT
I went ahead and pre-ordered all but Dinobot. These aren't scheduled for release until September, if for some reason these don't turn out that great I have plenty of time to cancel the pre-order. I agree 2g is a bit small, but I doubt I use any of these for their functional purposes. Just like I've never used Music Label Soundwave as an mp3 player. For that matter I've never even put a battery in him.

2 GB is more than enough for documents and such, and I'm that kind of guy. If you're looking into photography, however you'll need a lot more.
