Yes, it's a Transformer that turns into (a Japanese brand equivalent to) a Popsicle.

Does this beat out "a shoe" and "1/3 of a camera" as the weirdest and most impractical alt-mode in the history of Transformers?

Certainly the most terrifying. Optimus Prime's head should never be 2/3rds mouth.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

I've had these on preorder for a while and wondered what they heck they were. There are two versions apparently (Soda & Cola).

Japan is certainly a weird place. And I thought the whole "Bathing Ape" Prime thing was really odd...

Except BAPE is a high-end fashion brand and retro-chic is one of fashion's current love affairs, so it totally makes sense.

Anyway, this is the stupidest thing to come out of that country.
There's only room in here for one,
And I've decided it's not you.
I had to do what must be done.
YOU WOULD HAVE DONE IT TOO!
Suddenly I'm feeling strange...

The gari gari transformer was featured in the extra section at the end of the most recent episode of transformers prime in japan. In the section the idol band play rock paper sissors to see who gets the ice pop as they're all feeling the heat. To their surprise its a Transformer


The figure also has a demonstration video on the takara tomy youtube channel

That thing still terrifies me.
Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.
