With the new Transformers: The Last Knight coming our way. I thought it would be interesting to share something rare and likely unseen from the first Transformers (2007) movie where it all began, 10 years ago. Behold, one of the fanciest Transformers press-kits you may have ever seen. Those who attended the Toy Fair 2007 - special preview event, were given one of these press kits that actually transforms!
Yes, you heard that right. There is more than meets the eye to that exotic looking red box with the now familiar Autobot symbol reformatted in a dark gray metal insignia over the battle charred red that adorned most of the Transformers products packaging made for the 2007 film.
The first thing you'll find is a somewhat puzzling sort of puzzle box in the box that fits snugly into the top. It pulls out to form a multi-sided folding box with the Transformers logo and symbols, but doesn't appear to have any further than than what you see. This is where the lower-half of the Autobot symbol comes into play with a lower section that tilts outwards to reveal a hidden compartment with a secret device inside. Why, its a transforming pen, of all things, that bears the classic G1 Transformers logo with Autobot and Decepticon symbols.
So there you have it. A blast from the past to remind us of how far we have come 10 years later. When the men were boys and the robots were packaged as awesome press kits.
