If you’re like me, and love the idea of Transformers figures transforming into retro consoles, this is pure bliss.  Among miniature models of classic Playstation consoles and accessories from the very beginning to the PS4, the Japanese manufacturer Takara Tomy announced the release of an Optimus Prime that transforms into the first Playstation. All this is part of a 20 years anniversary celebration of the original Playstation. The figure is slated for release sometime in the beginning of 2015 and already a sought after item.

Did I mention this news got released shortly after they announced a Sega Mega Drive Megatron? The all black figure even includes a miniature cartridge of Sonic the hedgehog. More infos supposedly to come in September.
