Voltron-transforming camera takes real pictures

Just like Transformers, the Star Shooter is more than meets the eye because the point-and-shoot uses the old 110-format cartridge film and the big, protruding lens is just a decorative element with no practical use.

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" won't hit theaters globally until June 24, so for now you just have to contend with the Voltron Star Shooter camera if you're into shape-shifting robots.

Flickr user John Kratz collects old and weird cameras, but this SLR-like snapper stands out among his other antique shooters. Just like Transformers, the Star Shooter is more than meets the eye because the point-and-shoot uses the old 110-format cartridge film and the big, protruding lens is just a decorative element with no practical use.

You probably won't be able to see this camera in stores now as it was first constructed in 1985. Let us know how much it costs these days if you do manage to find one for sale online.
