Casio G-Shock’s 35th anniversary celebrations carry on from 2018 into the New Year with a new collaboration that commemorates another fellow Japanese-turned-global brand’s 35th anniversary: Transformers.
Following through their first collaboration in 2017 – a movie with a new original character named GT3 Prime, drawn in a motif inspired by G-Shock’s metal watches G-Steel, the new collaboration is the DW-6900TF-SET, which includes a G-Shock watch and a Transformers figure that “transforms” from a robot to a pedestal for the watch.
The Master Optimus Prime figurine integrates the G-Shock watch into its chest and converts back and forth between the Master Optimus Prime Resonant Mode, and the Pedestal Prime Mode.
The G-Shock watch that featured in the DW-6900TF-SET is the matching red and blue DW-6900 watch, which is widely popular in Japan and around the world. Turning on the EL backlight showcases the Autobot symbol – the camp of righteousness and justice to which Master Optimus Prime belongs.
