Oh look, a real-life Transformers BMW car, and you can apparently buy one



WATCH | The Letrons Transformers car Transformer-ing

A robot car in disguise 

What's better than a life-sized, fully-functioning Transformers car made out of a BMW? A life-sized, fully-functioning Transformers car made out of a BMW that Michael Bay had no part in producing!

As spotted by Gizmodo, Turkish company Letvision has unveiled an exciting demo video showing off its Letron, a real-life Transformer (though not branded as such). It goes from car to robot in about a minute and seems real-deal enough to make any '80s kid want his or her own.

The good news: The company says you will be able to buy your own.

How does it work?

The Autobot wannabe is remote-controlled and fully electric, according to Letrons' website. This first version of the Letrons can't be driven on the road, but that will "be possible in the near future," the company says.

Letvision can build shape-shifters from non-BMW cars and will be doing so in the future.

How do I buy!?

Letvision has not yet listed any pricing info for its blown-up robot car and, in fact, says Letrons is only for sale "if the buyer's project and their reasons for use meets the criteria of the Letrons team." So it doesn't sound like you can run out and buy your very own right this second.

No big deal, though. If you're a proper, old-school Transformers fan, you've probably been waiting 25+ years to get your hands on a life-sized Optimus Prime or Swerve toy, anyhow.
