Fans of the original Transformers cartoons will be very excited to learn that Optimus Prime and Megatron are being reimagined as toys that transform into vintage Transformer gaming consoles  Playstation and SEGA Genesis.

According to Japanese website Radio Kaikan Press, to mark the 30th anniversary of the Transformers and PlayStation’s 20th anniversary this year, Sony Computer Entertainment and Takara Tomy have teamed up to release new toys of the iconic robots in their first generation forms (known as G1 to fans).

Although the new robot toys will only be released in Japan next year, they were on show at the UDX Summer Festival held in Akihabara last month. The Optimus Prime PlayStation Transformer is expected to be out next year in Japan.
