Optimouse Prime

mickbot98723

By Luke Anderson

Mickey Mouse is one of those icons that will probably never die. You can stick those black ears on just about anything and people will recognize them. Even on a Transformer. It seems that someone over at Disney thought it would be great to cash in on the renewed interest in the Transformers by turning their most beloved character into a robot in disguise.

I’m not sure whether or not Hasbro (or Takara) is in on this, as I don’t see any official Tranformers markings on this toy. Either way, Mikey turns into a red semi that bears a striking resemblance to Optimus Prime. I can’t recall the last time that I owned something with Mikey Mouse on it, but for $40, I might just have to pick one of these up.

    It's actually being put out by a company called “Tomy”. I remember seeing this a few months ago when the pics of the Masterpiece Grimlock figure were leaked.
