For most National Basketball Association players, getting your own shoe or action figure is a dream come true, but it seems that one very popular NBA player is upping the ante.

Chinese born basketball player Yao Ming has, apparently, gotten his own Transformer! Taking the form of a basketball, this Transformer changes into a super hero type figure that resembles the NBA hoop star.

Replace the head, add some paint and you have a cool niche market Tformer. It would go well with my shoeformers and Music Label Soundwave.

Being a Die hard Rockets and Yao Ming fan, I might considering picking this up if its not too expensive.

That thing has to be a bi*** to balance with all that back kibble. Still, a very interesting transforming toy. I'd hesitate to call it a Transformer though.

I agree. It makes me think of the Super Globetrotters cartoon from the 70's.

Oh, what the heck. Call me a sellout, I'm buy him.

That thing creeps me out. By the way, the Dr. Mareaux reference was hilarious.
