Famicom Transformers!

(No, not the shitty Transformers videogames by Takara...)

I picked up the two little toys above from Yahoo Auctions on a whim. They're Famicom Cartridges! And they transform!


Oh, below, we can see one of them transforming now! What will it look like? Will it be a roguish Ataribot? A litigious Nintendicon?


Wait for it....




Ahh! Oh.....

Well, anyway, I'm speechless.

These look like official Nintendo products, released long ago (1985-86, obviously), probably as some sort of cheap toy inside a Gachapon machine. They stand about 2.5 inches tall, and 2 inches wide, so they're really small and simple transformers. Too bad they're so simply (and goofily) designed. Nowadays, one could probably make an actual transforming, working Famiclone if there were actually the market for such a thing.
