Chrono Label: Auto Ceptor and Time Limit Transforming Wristwatches
Jay - Friday, January 09, 2009


Big Bad Toy Store has just announced it is taking pre-orders for the following new Transformer items: Chrono Label: Auto Ceptor Transforming Wristwatch and Chrono Label: Time Limit Transforming Wristwatch. Glad to see Takara's not giving up on making Transformers into functional electronics much like they did with Micro Change and Kronoform toys made back in the 80s.

There were a whole line of robo-watches from the Micro Change line. Kaltor was a Kronoform toy made by Takara for the USA market. That Megatron one, X-KALIBOR, is too cool. (link) I am pretty sure I have a Kaltor. Let me check around for it and I will PM you if I do.

...$280.00? For a transforming watch? (and a crappy looking one, at that.) A WATCH? You could buy a nice Rolex knockoff for that price and feel better about yourself in the end, even if you were living a lie. lol

.... GAHAHAHAHA. When I was a kid, I bought these watches in Chinatown for $5 ($4 of which probably went to the middlemen). And these things're the wrong form factor--the watch guys had the chest component arranged laterally like Soundwave. Best o' luck to them sellin' these... read more

I already own TOKIMA, by Bandai, which was about 50-80 pounds I think. It wasnt waterproof though and got eroded a little by my own sweat! Mind you, they are still cheaper than Takara's version and they have special messages for you about the date, historical facts, etc in Japanese as well... read more

Years ago my Uncle gave me a figure named Kaltor. It was a watch/caluclator/TF and I loved it. Sure enough my sister borrowed it for 2 minutes and it was gone forever... To this day I still search for one, and a reissue would just be the sh!t!!!! These on the other hand... ...... read more

I saw those when I checked out Encore Bruticus. I could believe the price that I was seeing. What kind of watches could these possibly be for $300? For that much these should miniaturized masterpiece Transformers.
