Some people are obsessed with Disney. Some not so much. But the makers of this new Transformer toy from Japan clearly love both Mickey Mouse and Transformers. I admit, when we first spotted this toy in the prototype phase, at our robot sister site Botropolis, we weren’t all that impressed.
Then when we saw the first pics with some color, we still weren’t that thrilled and figured it was geared toward chumps who would buy anything Disney. However, now that we see the final product, I have to admit that it looks cool. And I’m no Mickey Mouse fan. It was on display at this week’s Tokyo Toy Forum 2009.
Robo-Mickey actually folds up into a vehicle just like normal Transformers. It goes on sale in February for just $38.57. We still think it’s all merchandising BS, but since we love robots, we now want one.
