You probably didn’t know that you canon camera EOS R5 could become Optimus Prime of the transformers. Well, technically you can’t cross-dress that easily, but in Japan they’re making it happen.
This future was discovered by TFormers and it’s becoming a reality next year thanks to a collaboration between Takara Tomy (the Japanese company behind Transformers toys) and Canon.
The collaboration has resulted in a pair of Transformers figures that can fold into surprisingly realistic-looking Canon mirrorless cameras. It’s worth noting that for their prices of ¥19,800 (about $147), they are non-functional replicas that are only 80 percent of the actual size of the camera.

Both Transformers are scheduled to launch in Japan next year on February 25, and TFW2005 reports that the pre-orders are open now through September 28. It’s unclear if they’ll see a global release.
