The fascination with robots and or metal humanoid beings has been going on for some time now. However the interest goes away from time to time, but With the buzz the upcoming Transformers Movie is creating there is a re-kindling in the interest.
I Mean whats better than a robot that transforms into a big red firetruck??
I Guess a whole bunch of Robots that transform into everything from Cheetahs to Cross-trainers.
So lets look at a few examples.
Optimus Prime has been shown to transform into a lot of things, and everyone has some kind of creative way of docking your ipod, and someone always finds a way to combine ideas. Well, here he turns into a fully licensed ipod dock. For $145 you can push your ipod around on the living room floor while playing Alter-Ego because Tyrese Gibson is in The Transformers Movie. Be sure to pre-order it here!
Convoy & Optimus 7.0
This one is a "Manformer", The result of a google image search. This by far is the coolest one, meaning its the most exclusive. I could not find a place to buy this one.
Original Optimus Prime
And last but not least, this one actually turns into a toy Firetruck!! This is the first form of Optimus ever made, and seems to be the primary type of Optimus used in multiple seasons, movies, and series of Transformers.
