Toy Porn: Super Mecha Disney Team – TRANSFORM!

Japan, birthplace of all things Transformers, has once again proven that there’s no concept that they can’t Japanify into a total conglomeration of “What the holy fuck?”

A couple years back, they introduced Disney Transformers. There was a Mickey that turned into…something?  Maybe there was a Donald? I have the vaguest of recollections because it didn’t appeal to me on any level. While I love Transformers, the classic Disney characters have never been my bag.

So news that Bandai (creators of Gundam, not Transformers, incidentally) was revitalizing the line didn’t do much for me until I saw what the they were revitalizing it into…

What you’re looking at is a full-on combiner team (similar to the Constructicons or the Protectobots); but with Mickey, Goofy, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Pluto, and…the boat from Steamboat Willie…seriously? The aesthetic is different, more mobile suit than sentient robot (which, considering Bandai’s lineage, makes sense) and, God help me, but I’m intrigued by this unholy conglomeration. It’s like an epic car crash in a world where the only vehicles are robotic Disney characters. I just can’t look away.

UPDATE: Added a gallery of pics care of GetNews.

UPDATE 2:

We now have an image of this unholy union from the back. TNI.com says that Minnie is acting as a “backpack” in this configuration…but that’s Mickey making up the waist right below her. Looks more like Disney armored-suit reverse cowgirl to me.
