No doubt you’ve all seen the Chevrolet Camaro in the movie Transformers. Some of you would have also wished for a car transforming into a robot, let alone ponder building one yourself.

Then you should totally check out this video where this Japanese toy maker has built a miniature scale Camaro transforming into a Transformer!

[Head to YouTube if you cannot watch the video above.]

Japan is hosting it’s annual Tokyo Toy Show where you get to see everything and anything from a teddy bear to an advanced soccer playing robot. Even Toyota has presented a two-door sports car concept which allows you to build it yourself! We know what you’re thinking, Sunday afternoons will never be the same again!

This Camaro was presented by Japanese toymaker Takara Tomy. From a two-door American muscle car, this Camaro can be transformed to a full fledged robot within a few seconds. And the best part is that your smartphone has the controls for it!

Takara Tomy has not revealed the prices of it yet.

This video reminds me of this commercial I saw for the Citroen C4 in UK. This ad is nearly 8 years old as far as I can remember. It came a few years before the first Transformers film itself. The message is simple: The C4 is alive with technology.

Which car (sold in India) would make a good Transformer?
