Transformers coming out of our ears

Literally, with these earphones

Tokyomango

So you think the likes of Spider-Man and Pirates of the Caribbean have saturated the market with merchandising? Wait till the Transformers juggernaut gets into full gear as the movie's July 4 opening nears.

We've already seen an " Optimus Prime " helmet, GM cars and, just yesterday, some Transformer Nikes . Now, Tokyomango says Takara Tomy is assaulting our auditory canals with the "Transformers Music Label Frenzy and Rumble" earphones. With a name like that, can there be any doubt that they're from Japan?
