Casio G-Shock releases news of a collaborative watch with the Transformers franchise. As both names are set to celebrate their 35th anniversary, garnering a cult-like following in the ’80s, the joint watch sees an impressive display from both brands. It wouldn’t be a Transformers collab without a fully-transforming figure, and from this limited release we see a transformable Optimus Prime collectible that uses the G-Shock DW-6900TF-4 watch as the Matrix of Leadership chest piece; when the watch is transformed, Optimus Prime converts into a watch stand — there’s also a Matrix of Leadership piece included to fill the space in the figure when the G-Shock watch is being worn.

The actual watch shares a similar color scheme to the Optimus Prime figure, where red and navy make up the majority of the watch case and strap, while a grey face contains the Transformers logo and Autobots symbol.

Unfortunately for those living stateside, the Transformers x Casio G-Shock DW-6900TF-4 watch is only available in Japan, where it will be sold in a lottery online at Takara Tomy November 19 for a price of ¥29,000 JPY (approximately $260 USD).
