In a partnership that’s much More Than Meets The Eye, Transformers brand owner Takara Tomy and leading Japanese professional camera maker Canon have combined their forces to design and create the most name-accurate Prime – Optimus Prime, the leader of the Autobot that can transform into the Canon R5 DSLR! Enter the Transformers x Canon Optimus Prime R5.

Non-working of course. This collaboration by Canon and Takara Tomy certainly took us by surprise, by bringing us the best of both worlds into one wild and hard-to-get exclusive that’s only available in Japan!

Sadly, it’s not a 1:1 scale creation but it’s close and of all the licensed Optimus Primes out there, some of which are weird (we’re looking at you Pepsi), this is one of the strangest that actually makes sense. Optimus Prime and Prime Lens – Till All Are One!
