These Canon cameras are secretly Robots in Disguise

Don’t you simply hate it whilst you select up your trusty Canon EOS R5, handiest to find it’s in reality a sneaky Transformer? Well dangerous information, as a result of this nightmarish long term spotted by TFormers is in reality changing into a truth subsequent 12 months because of a collaboration between Takara Tomy (the Japanese corporate at the back of the Transformers toys) and Canon (the Japanese corporate at the back of… smartly you get the theory).

The collaboration has resulted in a couple of Transformers collectible figurines that are in a position to fold away into unusually life like taking a look Canon mirrorless cameras. I say “surprisingly realistic” as a result of to start with look I in some way mistook those for functioning cameras. But in case it wasn’t obtrusive from their ¥ 19,800 (round $147) pricing, they’re non-functional replicas that are handiest 80-percent of the dimensions of the true factor. (The concept that this can be a functioning digicam isn’t so wild taking into account Takara Tomy has prior to now produced working MP3-player Transformer toys).

Probably my favourite element is the lens cap, which in each instances grow to be into shields for the Transformers to wield. But an in depth 2nd is the miniature cameras each collectible figurines seem to be preserving in probably the most promotional photographs, which is a delightfully foolish addition. One figurine is in line with Optimus Prime, whilst the opposite is Decepticon Refraktor.

Both Transformers are scheduled to liberate in Japan subsequent 12 months on February twenty fifth, and TFW2005 reports that preorders are open from now till September twenty eighth. It’s unclear in the event that they’ll see an international liberate.
