Mickey Transformers

Say hello to Mecha-Mouse!

Going on sale next month in Japan are a pair of Mickey Mouse Transformers toys. One in shimmering black and white (Steampunk Willie?), the other in glorious multiplane Techincolor. No word yet on a Pluto-bot, Goofytron or Decepta-Duck.

More cool pictures of robo-Mickey below and here.

  • Fantastic. I love the look of these. This is a stroke of genius. In fact, every cartoon license should look at doing Transformers.

    Japan only. Not coming to america.

  • When you flick between the first two images on the gallery page of that second link, it looks like he’s doing a little dance!

    That’s pretty cool! Now if only the exchange rate was better…

    Reminds me of those battle robot comics stories that Don Markstein wrote and appeared in Gemstone’s Disney comic books line.

    One hopes there’ll be no “Silly Symphonies Unleashed” tv series from this.

  • Paul N

    Sweet!

  • I like the B&W Mickey Transformer !

  • Justin

    Heh, excellent! The design is awesome and the black & white version shows they were into the project! I wish I could get one!

  • Opti-mickey Prime?

    So weird.

  • Trademark infringement? Is this a Disney-authorized product?

  • Ohman

    Hasbro…

  • GlueEater

    Wow! This looks so much better than it sounds. Great idea.

  • Pedro Nakama

    As long as Disney doesn’t make it into a movie with Shia LaBeouf. No, No, No, No, No!

    Nina Paley, are you kidding?
    haha

    Of course this is official, Tomy makes Transformers for Japan.
    They’ve been licensing for Hasbro and Disney for a while now.

    Hey…I’ll put this one on the shelf right next to my Cinderella waistpaper basket I bought in Tijuana while I was sitting in my car at the border inspection station….

  • Much better than the Star Wars Transformers.
