Optimus And Megatron Classic Console Transformers

Toys: Takara Tomy has found the best way to suck the cash from our wallets save for some kind of reverse-ATM tractor beam. First teased earlier in the year, you can finally pre-order the toymaker’s homage to robots and classic gaming consoles with these updated Optimus Prime and Megatron figures that transform into the original Sony Playstation and the Sega Genesis respectively.

Both are available for pre-order from the BigBadToyStore for about Australian $110 each, and while the Megatron variant is expected to be available sometime this month (which is pretty optimistic at this point) the Optimus Prime figure won’t ship until February 2015, which is probably a far more accurate — and agonizing — ETA.
