Razer and Hasbro Launch Transformers 3 Gaming Peripherals

Earth will soon shroud in the dark of the moon as the great war between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS explodes, threatening to tear our planet apart. Razer, the world leader in high performance gaming hardware, under license from Hasbro, Inc., will unleash a unique Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon Collector’s Edition product line to prepare you for the metal on metal battle of epic proportions now available on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, and Shockwave: four legends crafted and transmuted into four uniquely designed Razer DeathAdder mice to give you unparalleled gaming performance while evoking the heart-pumping excitement and robot wonder of the Transformers universe.

Also included in the product line is a dual-sided Razer Vespula mouse mat. One side represents the Autobots with a speed-enhancing surface, the other of the Decepticons with a control-enhancing surface, to showcase your favored allegiance as you annihilate opponents with your preferred style of swiping. And finally, an exclusive laptop case designed by Razer, available in the four iconic Transformers brand colors, delivers a sleek and eye-catching storage solution for your gaming on the go.

“The Transformers franchise has never been more mind-blowing. Especially now with the Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie, a blockbuster hit across the globe,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, President, Razer USA. “Fans, whether long-time or newcomers thanks to the films, will love the Transformers product line we’ve designed. It’ll give you our best gaming-grade peripherals wrapped up in the designs of the famed robot universe.”

“Powerful technology in spectacularly designed hardware – that’s what both the Transformers franchise and Razer have in common,” said Joe Keane, VP Brand Licensing for the Americas, Hasbro. “And that’s why this collaboration is something fans of the brand and gamers alike will seriously enjoy.”

They could include a rat 7 "transformer themed" in a Transformers BR Deluxe Edition Collection, if they'll ever make one (...and they probably will :rolleyes:).
