For an 80′s kid like me, Takara Tomy’s transforming Optimus Prime iPod dock can’t be described by words, only by phonemic abstractions meant to convey the most transcendental surges of consumerist joy. Words like SQUEE! and WOOBLEWOOP! But being an 80′s kid, I’ll simply fall back on a term burned into my language banks by a thousand hours of animated half-hour toy commercials. To borrow an expression from the common argot of our youths, this is just totally awesome.
$145 bucks, which is crazy, but fuck it, I’m getting one.
