Transformable Tomas Mixes Thomas the Tank Engine With Transformers

Transformable Tomas has successfully reignited my love for Thomas the Tank Engine. The classic children's toy features tame trains solving a variety of problems but never transforming into giant robots -- until now.

Thomas and Transformers are such a natural fit. Transformable Tomas seriously looks badass. Transformable Tomas was spotted in Japan and there is no word yet on pricing and availability. Children need this toy, now.

Implications - Not just children, expect attention from collector's and grown-ups who aren't necessarily ready to let go of this part of their childhood. Can you really fault them for that? I can't. These are well designed and sharp. Perfect for any mantle, desk top, or bookshelf.
