Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Exclusive Japan Robots!

Expect lots of exclusive Japan Transformers toys in the upcoming months featured here on the blog! Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen hits movie theaters on June 24th and Japan already has churned out an exclusive!

Takara Tomy are releasing Optimus Prime & Bumblebee Robo Qs- the tiniest walking robots!
They stand only 1.3 inches high (think thumb-sized) and are remote controlled (the remote control is HUGE).

Although Optimus Prime & Bumblebee may have issues with being considered kawaii, we cannot resist these cute little robots!

Speaking of kawaii- check out the Mickey Mouse Transformer!

4200 yen each- pick up yours through Rinkya Stores!
