With a bit of a slow news weekend, we thought we might direct your attention to a fun little project brought about by Bamloff, who are creating a line of thinly veiled Transformers homages... out of wood! Little vehicles transforming into humanoid robots, made out of tiny blocks of wood and elastic - a perfect, if slightly expensive, stocking filler. Check out some of the images below, and the full story over here, including pretty cool GIFs for each figure.

They’re robots. They’re vehicles. They’re kindling. I guess that makes Bamloff’s line of wooden transforming robots triple changers. Either way, WooBots are very cool.

[...]

What I think these really are is an unofficial sequel to the Transformers: Beast Machines cartoon, which ends with Cybertron being changed (back, so they say) into an organic world and Rattrap hooking up with a tree. These are probably his children.

Whatever the true origin of these wooden robot beings, WooBots are a very cool idea, and unlike many cool Kickstarted ideas, they’re supposed to begin shipping as soon as the Kickstarter is over. That means (based on Canadian dollar conversion rates) an entire set of five could potentially be under your Christmas tree for something like $99, with single figures running around $26.

I've seen toys similar to this concept at Cracker Barrel restaurant gift shops, only not this complex.

A quick Google Image Search brought two of them:

The orange one even has Bumblebee's face.

There's also a red one, but I couldn't find a pic of it via Google. The result brought up a different red one with the wrong face.
