The Swoosh’s latest outside-the-box collaboration is imminent; the Nike CJ81 Trainer Max Megatron release date is set for tomorrow, November 26, at stateside accounts. And like the best cereals from your childhood, there’s an added bonus in the box. (Metaphorically speaking. I can’t guarantee how the packaging will look, so it’s entirely possible it won’t actually be inside the box.)
An official collaboration with Transformers-maker Hasbro, the shoe features not just the familiar mix of purple, silver and red for which the other Megatron is known — the Decepticons’ leader, not Calvin Johnson — but even features the Decepticons logo on the heel and insole, the latter also boasting digital “MEGATRON” script.
But wait, there’s more. The shoe will also come with an actual Megatron action figure, complete with the usual colors and branding and Calvin Johnson’s signature printed on the character’s shoulder. This is as Megatron-y as it could possibly get.
In addition to hitting physical retailers tomorrow, alongside the Air Trainer SC II Megatron, you can also buy the shoe-and-figure pack online at the usual retailers, starting at 8a EST. Buy it here on Eastbay.com.
