Transformer gets steampunk makeover

Many of us of a certain age will remember the joys and wonder of playing with Transformers, as unlike the usual offerings created by toy manufacturers of the time - these were actually robots in disguise.

Yes, you heard that right, what could be better than a robot that turned into an every-day object; such as a fire engine or a car, and then after a yank here and a twist there turn back into its robot form? We'll tell you. This Optimus Prime steampunk edition.

Built by Encline Designs, this fully functioning boss-Transformer gets fully pimped and has the ability to turn into a very retro Steam Engine. Aesthetically its great, but we can't help feel that the necessity for Primey to move around on the rail network might place him at a disadvantage in the war against the Evil Decepticons.
