Calvin Johnson Gets His Own Transformers Figure

It’s stories like this that make me hate cross-company, sports-related synergy.

Calvin Johnson, aka “Megatron,” now has a Transformers action figure of his own, courtesy of Nike and Hasbro.

Nike, which sponsors Johnson’s shoes, and Hasbro, which created the Transformers, collaborated for the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, a purple-and-red shoe that has a matching Megatron Decepticon action figure.

This is a first for Johnson. He said he had action figures as a kid, but never any Transformers.

Now, after sharing his nickname with one of the characters, he has an action figure too.

“Never thought that would happen,” Johnson said.

The transformer is actually part of a three-shoe package for Nike, which will have the Trainer Max, the Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II and the Nike CJ81 Megatron Elite TD Cleat.

Nike is selling a limited edition Megatron Rises 3-Pack, featuring all three shoes and the action figure. There are 81 of them being made available for sale.

“They are coming out with a little package or something like that,” Johnson said. “It’s going to be cool. It’s a cool little deal.

“I think kids will like it. I think everybody will like it. It’s cool shoes, plus you get a little toy.”

For those who know and remember their Transformers toys, the toy is not the classic “Megatron” you may recall from your youth.  Panic from adults over thirty years has eliminated any chance of the evil leader of the Decepticons being a gun from his “G-1” glory anymore.  This one, which you can see here, appears to be able to turn into a B-2 Stealth Bomber.
