Last year, Takara made an amazing Transformer out of a pun, mashing up the big bad guy, Megatron, with Sega's 16-bit Mega Drive. And while it was nowhere near as punny, they followed it up with a Playstation-based Optimus Prime. But they stopped there. Fans are picking up where Takara left off, though. This badass t-shirt design features a Transformer based on Nintendo's Famicom Disk System, the attachment for Japan's version of the NES. This add-on was home to The Legend of ZeldaMetroid, and many more classics that made their way west in cartridge format.

This design has been available for a while in Japan, but westerners can now grab is easily from Attract Mode for $30.

    Sanrio had a booth at NYCC but it was pretty much empty. There were a few pieces under glass, such as their collaboration with Chocolate Skateboards, but didn't have anything for sale.
