Few toys have become so identified with the culture that created them as Transformers have with Japan; the fact that the franchise was originally a joint venture between a top American toy maker (Hasbro) and a top Japanese one (Takara Tomy) is beside the point, since for most people Transformers are synonymous with Japan. The reason is the country's national passion for robots, especially for the notion that there's a robot potentially hidden in any machine, including, as in the case of the Canon Transformers Optimus Prime EOS R5, a Canon EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera!
Created in collaboration with the camera maker itself, the Canon Transformers Optimus Prime EOS R5 looks like a smaller-scale replica of the company's flagship model with a staggering attention to detail. It even comes with a detachable 24-105 zoom lens. But start sliding, twisting, and clicking the parts and you soon end up with an approximately 20 cm (7.9") figure of Optimus Prime, one of the leading characters in the Transformers franchise. And he evens comes with a Matrix of Leadership banner to confirm he is the leader of the Autobots (or perhaps that should be the Camerabots)!
