image

iPods in disguise? BigBadToyStore.com is offering an imported iPod speaker system integrated into a Convoy (the Japanese equivalent of Optimus Prime) Transformers toy. “Two iconic products have merged to create the new Convoy iPod Docking Bay,” says the online store. “Convoy is presented in an entirely white iPod color scheme and fully functional iPod Docking Bay with Speakers. The trailer holds two speakers and all standard size iPods will mount in the center of the trailer to play your favorite tunes.” The Convoy iPod Docking Bay is priced at $145 and will ship in July.

Actually, there are also transforming MP3 players, resembling the classic Soundwave tape player. One is in iPod-ish white, the other is in classic Soundwave blue.

The “tape door” is now a slot for a memory card.

They also appear at BigBadToyStore.
