Highpants-transformer-console-wars-004-megatron-megadriveTakara have a long history creating incredibly detailed Transforming toys, the latest generation will see Optimus Prime transform into the Original Playstation while Megatron will transform into a Sega MegaDrive. Standing 19cm tall the new models transform down into miniature consoles that sadly aren’t functional, that would have been too cool.

Takara Tomy Arts T-Arts also has a series of historic PlayStation models being prepared for the birthday celebrations. The 1/6th models cover the rest of the family tree from PlayStation 2 to 4.

Due for release in February 2015 and costing 10,000 yen, around $90, the Transformers are ready to go to war once more, but this time it’s a console war.
