You must surely remember the purple Calvin Johnson Megatron figure that Hasbro released (and in case you don't, check out our gallery!). It now looks like as though they're supporting another player, from the New England Patriots: Julian “Minitron” Edelman. Check out their tweet below, featuring a custom job of the Warrior class Robots in Disguise Bumblebee (work by Mister Etips).

Best of luck to Minitron/@Edelman11 & the @Patriots in today's playoff game! Roll out! #PatriotsNation #TRANSFORMERS

Fun trivia - the guy that painted this (who's one of Hasbro's professionals that paints test samples) has his name on MP Acid Storm under the cockpit as an Easter Egg.

Another football themed Transformer? When are we going to get a James "Optimus" Reimer figure? Heck, I'd settle for a simple repaint of DOTM Icepick with a goalie stick.

It would be super awesome if they decided to sell this like the Calvin Johnson figure... This one, I would totally buy :grin:

...and maybe the support helped because that was some killer play that Edelman was involved with throwing that touchdown pass to Amendola.

AFC CHAMPIONSHIP HERE WE COME!

On January 10th Hasbro tweeted at Julian Edelman of New England Patriots for their playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens while revealing a new Julian “Minitron” Edelman figure reported here. A Custom deco of Transformers: Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Bumblebee, on February 4th Hasbro has applied for a new Transformers Trademark "Minitron". A nick name Tom Brady gave Edelman for being basically smaller version of the physically dominant NFL wide receiver Calvin Johnson whose nick-name has been Megatron since 2007 when the first live action movie came out that very same year.

Check out the Trademark ID 86512239 and it's description below.

I'm actually wondering why they didn't use this name for "Mini-Cons" to begin with, since all faction-related names back then that ended "con" referred to someone related to the Decepticons (Constructicon, Stunticon, Predacon, Terrorcon, etc.). For "Mini-Con" to use the "Con" suffix and not be wholly Decepticon-affiliated struck me as being bizarre back then, whereas a name like "Minitron" would have evoked the more neutrally-aligned-sounding feel that the Mini-Cons were meant to be.

What I'm wondering is if the NFL is involved in this little deal. for the Calvin Johnson Megatron the colors is purple which is inline with his Nike sneaker release (I think it came with the sneakers) but it's not the colors of his uniform which is silver and blue. This deco is in the color of Patriots uniform... so the NFL is probably involved in this..

An even better question is, if the NFL IS involved in this, are there plans for one player on each of the leagues 33 teams to have some sort of figure associated with them. Personally, I think it's marketing gold and they'd be fools not to jump on this possibility. Having a Seahawks colored Marshawn Lynch Rhinox figure ready to go "Beast Mode" on any opposition would just thrill me to death. I'd actually dump obscene amounts of money towards something like that and I know I'm not the only collector out there that would do likewise to have an official Hasbro/NFL collectible representing their favorite team.
I had always thought they should have done the same with NASCAR and, in fact, it was an idea that one of my brothers and I had talked about long before they came out with the Wreckers figures for DotM. Yeah, it's a niche market and the figures are going to cost a small to moderate fortune but that's true of all the merchandise associated with the NFL or NASCAR so it's not like it would come as a shock to any collectors.
