Spartans in Disguise
March 3, 2009 28 Comments
Because of the complete and utter badassery involved, I spent just as much of my childhood playing with Transformers as I did My Little Ponies. For some reason toys that morph from a robot into a vehicle or an animal were, and continue to be, entertaining as all hell. While there have been previous endeavors at creating a Spartan Prime Transformer, manipulating the numerous extremities disappointingly exposed a not Halo-related item. Those days of inefficacy are a distant memory as the latest Halo-themed Transformer transcends all prior expectations. Crafted from a McFarlane Master Chief figure, an Action Clix Warthog, and an Autobot Hound Transformer, this plaything starts as a Spartan supersoldier and converts into a battle-ready Warthog LRV. Current bid sits at $26 but considering there are nine days left in the auction, there is plenty of time for it to hit a more than pretty penny. Is this the part where I’m supposed to say queer eye for the Spartan guy? Or there’s more than meets Arby’s eye? I’ll try to remember the line while you look at more pictures located conveniently after the jump.
