Here's one for you fans of wacky crossover figures! Site sponsor Robotkingdom has opened a pre-order for Takara Transformers GARIGARI-kun Robo (Cola), a figure based on Garigari-kun's (an frozen treat producer in Japan) mascot that transforms into a popsicle! Apparently he will come in two flavors!

Oh god Optimus, what happened to you? :shock:

I'm horrified and yet strangely amazed.

lol, weird. I wonder how much it will cost and if my girlfriend would be interested. Probably not, if it doesn't transform into a recognizable character.

It turns into Optimus Prime cosplaying as that mascot, or the mascot cosplaying as Optimus Prime, not quite sure what.

It's too bad that popsicle doesn't transform into Prowl. It would be awesome to own a figure of Prowl with a literal stick up his...

I totally didn't notice the Prime colors in there... suffice to say, the original character is far too creepy anyway. :lol:

I do believe this figure gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'More than meets the eye' :P.

I'm actually kinda impressed by the engineering here. That being said, no, it's not for me, thanks :).

Oh god I just realised, this gives the creepy kind of fan girls a whole new excuse to say that they want to suck on Optimus Prime.
