File under ‘Rather cool’ and/or ‘TC is abusing his position as news editor again’, but it has been revealed that Sega and Takara Tomy have teamed up to create a Sega Megadrive that transforms into the leader of the Decepticons, Megatron.
The partnership is part of a sub line called the Takara Tomy ARTS range, but it is unclear if this is a one off model or part of a larger series of robots that transform in to consoles. TFW2005 note that “OptiSNES Prime” would be a great addition.
It looks like – and this is just me hypothesizing – that the Megadrive Megatron has as USB stick built in as his arm cannon. There have been a couple of USB enabled Transformers in the past, most notably a USB stick that turns in to the robotic pather, Ravage, and Blaster who was a laptop that became a USB hub.
Anyway, Megadrive Megatron rather cool so I thought you might want a look, I’ll go back to writing about patches and release dates now.
