Dinobot Transformer Goes From T-Rex to Mouse

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 18 comments

Me Grimlock... mouse.

Yesterday we brought you images of awesome Ravage Transformer USB drive. Today we bring you another melding of Transformers and computer technology with the Trypticon Decepticon command base and Grimlock Dinobot, which both transform from Tyrannosaurs into mice.

While both look far less like their classic Transformer counterparts than Ravage, it’s still more than enough to tickle the nostalgic parts of us.

With three buttons and an 800 dpi sensor, it’s not a lot of mouse for the money at $60 – but if you’ve gotta have it, it’ll be shipping in September.

    Damn you Marcus. My savings account hates you!

    Keep this up and my entire computer will soon be made of transformers. Any word on a transformers case by chance? If not I see a void to be filled.

    Trypticon was an awesome robot. I remember seeing it at Toys R Us and desperately wanting it.

    I did have Grimlock which was awesome too.

    The USB Thumb drive was really cool. I don't know about a mouse...

    The Ravage drive is cool and "useful, at a certain point. However, this mouse seems awfully akward to use. I can,t imagine holding that thing for hours.

    That doesn't even look like Grimlock. BOOOOOO........

    I know that in order to transform into a mouse the dinobot form can't look like the original, but that doesn't even look like they tried. If you're gonna make a transformer mouse, put a little more effort into it.

    Exactly what I needed. A transformer mouse. Now someone needs a mouse and coffee cup combo.

    This thing would be KILLER if it transformed at the push of a button.

    Leaving the desk, hit the button... BLAM transformation begins to dino. When you come back, hit the button... BLAM you got a mouse again.

    dude - I still have my Grimlock! And Snarl, and Sludge, and Swoop, and Slag! I still have Jetfire to and quite a few other Transformers. (I still cringe when I remember how my mom made me throw my Jetfire box away. at the time I had no idea I should have kept it but I had and it had been in my room forever and of course mom thought it was junk since it was just the box)
