New TF Cuff Links make formal wear More Than Meets the Eye

Motto: "Til All Are One."
Weapon: Dual Laser Cannon
It appears that no venue or product in known creation is capable of avoiding being part of the Transformers phenomena. With the myriad of products that bear the TF logo or representation on them, this should come as no suprise.

Australian hand bag maker Fink Studio has taken it upon itself to create the ultimate in formal wear accessories: Autobot and Decepticon cuff links.

If you like these new additions to TF lore, you're far from alone as all sets of these cuff links have sold out. No word on whether or not these will be available again at this time.

Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more information on this story as it becomes available.

The link doesn't show anything (as they're sold) but you can see them in the seller's sold items list here: http://www.etsy.com/shop_sold.php?user_id=6639642

Damn, I would dig a pair of Decepticon cuff links too!

The next big question is...where is the tie tack to go with the cuff-links. Considering that my usual attire is black anyway, I happen to have an all black suit that would look sweet with a deep purple tie and a matching set of Decepticon cufflinks AND a matching 'Con tie-tack. B-)
Likewise, a red tie with the matching 'Bot trio would look cool but I would hate to have to buy 2 sets of each of the cufflinks just to mod 1 piece of each set into a tack. Shame on these guys for failing to properly accessorize. :P

Oh, and the red striping on the 'Con cufflinks is a definite no-go!
Purple or no accent on the stripes like in the first pic. but no red on the 'Con links. Otherwise, all I can say is these accessories rock!

They look pretty sharp Mr OP. They are in fact on ebay and I just nabbed a pair of Decepticon cuff links for my next formal occasion 8)

Decepticon (4 left at time of posting): http://cgi.ebay.com/Transformers-Decepticon-Autobot-superhero-CUFFLINKS_W0QQitemZ140298849665QQihZ004QQcategoryZ108895QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262

Autobot (4 left at time of posting): http://cgi.ebay.com/Transformers-Autobots-Decepticon-superhero-CUFFLINKS_W0QQitemZ200305603027QQihZ010QQcategoryZ108895QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262

And there are some variations on the theme if you check the sellers other items.

Says multiple different versions are in stock with 2-3 left of each, though they won't be shipping out for another week to 2 weeks. $20 each, before shipping.

however, they are all over ebay, and they are cheaper, even after shipping.

Those pictures of you wearing the cufflinks in the wedding look awesome. and Congratulations also!

If you want the red ones, these are 4.99 with free shipping, but they are coming from China, so it might be 2-3 weeks+ before you get them.

http://cgi.ebay.com/US-transformers-dec ... .m20.l1116

I'm not sure why these are so cheap compared to the other ones... makes me worried. Chinese ebay sellers always scare me.

Also, they have gold-colored looking stainless steel ones as well. If these $20 cufflinks are the same as the $4.99 ones I posted, I'm tempted to get a pair of each color/material, for both factions, (12 total) and have a nice looking stand of cufflinks. Hahahaha. omg this addiction is getting out of control.

Someone please tell my why it is that when I made a 2 drawer Transformers nightstand for my sons I was able to find the perfect shade of Decepticon purple, in a spray can no less, and when it comes to detailing the Decepticon cufflinks and other such stuff, everyone is using Autobot red? If I get something like these the rest of my outfit will be black. I'm not a "red" kind of person and I want to accesorize with the silver Decpticon cufflinks and a nice tie. While I do have a silver tie, I think the silver cufflinks with purple detail would go well with a purple tie provided it is in a decent shade.(non-frilly or "metrosexual", I do have a bad-ass image to uphold B-) )

I guess I'm fussing too much over nothing. I should just shut-up and be happy that someone took the time to make such cool accessories in the first place. Whoever made these, thanks! :APPLAUSE:

Sir, not only is that a fantastic tuxedo that looks even MORE awesome with TF cufflinks (kudos on wearing those at your wedding, your wife must be pretty badass) but that's a really really spectacular ring you've got there too :)
