Photo gallery: More than meets the eye: New gadgety Transformers
The Transformers are hitting the big screen this July 4, and that means a whole lot of merchandising going on. Among the hordes of Transformers toys are Hasbro's Real Gear Transformers, a series of toy electronics that turn into robots. Remember Soundwave, the Transformer that became a tape deck? This is the next generation. As a bonus, we've picked out which real electronics these toys remind us of the most.
At about $7 each, the Real Gear Transformers don't actually work like the devices they mimic. On the other hand, it's probably a better idea to give your kid one of these instead of the new $400 gadget you just picked up at Best Buy.
This Autobot camera actually looks like it would be a pretty good compact camera. You can press down on the shutter release to make a clicking noise, but that's all it'll do.
Reminds us most of: Canon PowerShot SD750
