With an enthusiastic nod to the original 80’s TV show and toys, Takara will soon release the Transformers Device Label line of functional tech gadgets that transform into heroic Autobots and evil Decepticons. Fans will recognize Ravage, the panther-like Decepticon who originally transformed into an audio cassette (remember those?), and has now been updated to transform into a 2Gb USB memory stick ($42.99). There are 5 total in the Device Line, which also includes Grimlock, the robot T-Rex who now changes into a laser mouse ($59.99), and perhaps the most impressive is Blaster, whose updated alternate form is a mini-laptop that is actually a USB hub ($59.99)! All are available for preorder from BigBadToyStore, ToyWiz and other e-tailers. Transform, and geek out!
