Last month, Kotaku first reported that Optimus Prime was getting a special PlayStation Transformer. But that was concept art only! Now, we get a look at the actual toy. It's wonderful.

Website Radio Kaikan attended a figure event in Tokyo's Akihabara where the 19cm-tall Optimus Prime PlayStation Transformer was on display.

The back of the Optimus Prime is... the back of a PlayStation. Brilliant!

The Optimus Prime PlayStation Transformer is expected to be out next year in Japan.
