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.
