Optimus Prime is no longer just a crime-fighting robot that can turn himself into a vehicle, as he now comes in a speaker format as well.

This robotic home entertainment is called the Optimus Prime USB Speaker Set, which comes with a helmet that folds out into speakers.

If you're not into the whole good robot thing, there is also an Ultra Magnus version of the speaker set.
