A regular LED flashlight, infused with an Energon cube, becomes the most bitching torch ever. It not only transforms into a little anthropomorphic robot, but also a spider and Decepticon-style scorpion. $20, and I desperately want.
Transforming Flashlight [Meritline via Nerd Approved]
I have been waiting for those who manufacture, anticipate, and rarely satisfy my consumerist urges to make gadgets that transform for all of my adult life. Much of the tragedy of puberty was that my stuff didn’t transform any more. I hope this is the forerunner of a major and revolutionary trend. More! More I say!
I want my toaster to transform and my desklamp to transform (check!) and it’s not a multitool if it doesn’t also turn into a robot and I want my flowerpot to transform and of course my cellphone should transform into like three or four different awesome things and ye GODS why can’t my car transform yet!?
Are you listening, soulless corporate lurkers? I may be broke, but I SWEAR TO FUCKING JEBUS that I represent a huge freaking chunk of Males Under 40. Satisfy me!
It’s on sale for $9.99. Get it, John, get it.
Shipping is over $50 to Canada…why…WWHHY!!!??!!!
I don’t see how it could transform into a spider with only six legs. Scorpion all the way though!
Spheniscidomorphic, I’d have said.
