Transform Your Sneakers with the PUMA x Transformers Collection

PUMA and Hasbro have unveil an exclusive Transformers-themed collection. The PUMA x Transformers range celebrates the two iconic Autobots, Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, their super powers and remarkable built, reimagined into PUMA’s latest RS-X silhouette.

This season, PUMA launches the RS-X sneaker, a reboot of the RS-0 which was built on the classic 80’s Running System (RS) line. Pushing boundaries in futuristic design with retro vibes, PUMA extends their RS range by partnering with exciting brands that take reinvention to the extreme, from the toy, television, telecommunication and motoring worlds.  With its bulky design, bold color palette and material mixes, RS-X Transforemrs pushes reinvention further and explores collectibles in and beyond the sneaker culture.

Equipped with PUMA’s patented RS technology on the midsole, the upper is decked with mesh, textile and nubuck overlays. The RS-X Transformers Bumblebee in Quiet Shade – Cyber Yellow and the RS-X Transformers Optimus Prime in Dazzling Blue – High Risk Red are nods to the signature colors of the two protagonists. The RS PUMA branding appears on the molded sockliner while the shoe tongue features the collab logo. The Transformers Autobot symbol fitted on the heel piece accentuate the style.

For the ultimate head-to-toe Transformers look, the collection also features apparel and accessories. Bumblebee and Optimus Prime’s vivid colors continue to appear on the T7 Track Pant and Track Top while the tees feature various iterations of the PUMA x Transformers graphics and all-over prints.

The PUMA x Transformers collection for Men and Kid’s drops exclusively at Foot Locker stores and PUMA.com in Europe on November 22nd and mid-December in the U.S.

Review: Transformers: Optimus Prime #23

The battle against Unicron forces Optimus Prime’s colonist soldiers to contend with a brutal reality-they have no homes to return to. But when they make a move against Trypticon, the human-controlled home of the next generation of Cybertronians… can the end be far behind?

Transformers: Optimus Prime #23 could have been an interesting tie-in to the current “Unicron” storyline. Instead of exploring the concept of the end of the world and what you should do, the issue devolves into a typical battle due to misunderstandings. Like the “Unicron” main series, it also has no problem killing characters off, indicating the end is near in multiple ways.

Writer John Barber gives us a pretty typical story of things getting out of hand due to misunderstandings. It all escalates in expected ways and of course there’s that moment of no return. In all of those ways, the comic is pretty lackluster for what’s presented.

What’s interesting though is the exploration of the Cybertronian history and their true nature of destruction. Even though they think they protect, they destroy. It’s a cycle that seems to play out in numerous ways over and over. It’s even manifested in the character Jazz himself. Unfortunately, the protector/destructor duality is spelled out for us. Jazz reminds us multiple times in his dialogue. So, even the interesting aspects stumble in this issue. Add in those who reject Optimus and decide to attack, it all just comes together in a comic that throws a lot into the pot but doesn’t quite make the case for any of it.

The art by Priscilla Tramontano is also a let down. The G.I. Joe characters look a bit too cartoony and their style doesn’t mix well with both their vehicles and the Transformers that surround them. It feels like two different stories mashed together in that way. Tramontano’s style would work really well for a younger reader Transformers/G.I. Joe series, or if the Cybertronians had a similar flow in their style as the humans. The color by Josh Burcham is cool and reminds me of the comics from the 80s that I love so much.

The issue has an interesting idea and set up but never quite lands things. It has to spell things out for the reader or falls into a story that we’ve seen too many times before. As far as a tie-in, this issue falls flat when so many others have been so good. It feels like a wasted opportunity to explore more of the Hasbro universe before things wrap up.
