Be@r Brick Optimus Prime and Megatron Released in Japan, In-Hand Images

For Transformers fans who like the weird, bizarre, or just plain cute, you should know that the first two Transformers Be@r Bricks have been released in Japan! Optimus Prime and Megatron (Bumblebee and Starscream will be released at a later date) convert from a Be@r Brick sporting their likeness into an actual robot mode. Yes that’s right, converting Be@r Bricks! Each figure stands at around the height of a smaller Deluxe Class figure, although they have a bit more bulk than the typical Deluxe. Retail price is 4800 Yen (about $47.43 USD) and online import shops (like Big Bad Toy Store) have them listed at around $55.
