Blaster Transformer Disguises as Laptop, USB Hub

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 13 comments

Another one to add to the Transformers USB collection.

While Soundwave the Decepticon definitely had cooler mini-cassette minions, Blaster the Autobot had way more style.

We don’t see people carrying boom boxes around with them these days, however, but laptops are commonplace – which is exactly what this new Blaster transforms into. Keeping with the USB theme, this one functions as a four-port hub – for your other Transformers Ravage and Grimlock USB gadgets, naturally.

Like all the other gadgets before it, this one is pricey at $60 and won’t be shipping until September.

    This is the last one that I could find, so I think that'll be it for now. I still find the Ravage USB stick to be by far my favorite -- and I actually have a real Ravage mini-cassette Transformer... and a very very old Soundwave. Ah, memories!

    They should have made it look like Soundwave. Decepticons are cooler than Autobots.

    No way. A huge transformers movie coming out this summer this is a perfect time to launch this product. Michael Bay loves to make a movie around explosions so you can expect another transformers movie as well.
