Generation 1
Calvin Johnson's Nike CJ81Transformers Megatron Collection Officially Launched

By Jack on Thursday, November 22, 2012



In celebration of Thanksgiving weekend, Nike celebrates a long-standing weekend of football and an athlete that has truly transformed the game. The Nike CJ81 Collection Inspired by Megatron speaks to WR Calvin Johnson’s rare combination of physical talent and mental toughness. This menacing combination creates a prototypical specimen that undoubtedly deserves a moniker like Megatron. Much like the fictional character, Johnson relies on his uncanny ability to pull out an arsenal of physical strengths or “weapons” based on anything he encounters on the field.

The collection, inspired by the Hasbro Transformers character created in 1984, features iconic Nike silhouettes across lifestyle, training and performance including the CJ81 Nike Air Max Flyposite, CJ81 Nike Huarache Free Shield, CJ81 Nike Vapor Jet Glove 2.0, CJ81 Nike Vapor Football Sock, CJ81 Nike True Adjustable Hat, and the CJ81 Nike KO Hoody.

Merging the old and new, the traditional Transformers grid pattern and colors of black, silver, purple and blue from the original Megatron packaging, help highlight the CJ81 logo design.

The limited collection will be available starting November 23 at several Nike retail locations as well as Nike Yardline at Champs Sports and Eastbay online.

More Generation 1 News
User Chobedear has posted photos of the packaging for Year of The Goat Optimus prime, the gold and colorless-clear plastic edition of G2 Laser Prime. Chobedear is also the original source for the Platinum Insecticon set, and has provided some new information. These are both available in Singapore right now, with the Insecticons running the equivalent of about US$100 and Optimus is $155. Let's hope when these eventually reach a retailer in the US, it's at a much lower price! Keep reading to see the new pictures.
Via an anonymous source, we have packaged photos of a Platinum Series three pack of the G1 Insecticons. These toys were reissued several years ago exclusively at Toys R Us - largely featuring replacement names due to trademarking issues, something this set corrects. We have no information on pricing or intended time of release, however there's a cross-sell on the box that shows the "Seeker Squadron" of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. Click through for the photos, and keep watch for future updates on these sets!
These days, invariably, you will find good condition factory sealed vintage Generation 1 Transformers preserved, immortalized, imprisoned, desecrated (delete as appropriate) in an acrylic display case, with a grade attached. The AFA – or Action Figure Authority – grade toys like Transformers be they factory sealed, opened and unused or even loose.
Planet Iacon has posted images of the next assortment of Kids Logic's 9cm SD minifigures! Largely the assortment is recolors of existing molds - Skywarp, Thundercracker, Soundblaster, and Ultra Magnus are recolors of Starscream, Soundwave, and Optimus Prime. But we also add the Insecticon Kickback to the mix! Keep reading to see the photos! UPDATE! These figures will be available at Toy Soul 2014, a Hong Kong toy convention happening this weekend. Link to Kids Logic's page added for more details!
Gothamist reports that Transformers Generation One will be taken out of circulation on Netflix on January 1st 2015. If you've yet to (re)watch the series and have a Netflix subscription, you've got two weeks to get some friends together and catch it while you can! GI Joe is also on the chopping block, so consider setting aside some time to recreate your weekday afternoons before the turn of the year. Keep reading for the full list of shows and films leaving Netflix next year!
