Nike Air Max Flyposite ?Megatron? | KicksOnFire
Nice use of the G1 box gradient in there!
Would have been better to have the real Decepticon emblem on the shoe.
Come on, Nike, you're a billion dollar shoe company, you could have paid for the license.
YES YES FANGANSM ALL OVER AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!..............................Just a huge con fan REALLY WILL GET AND KILL for em!!!
Worst. Merch. Ever.
I actually like those. They look pretty slick and are a nice blend of G1/Transformer references and athletic shoe designs. I think I want these, I just hope they're not too limited.
Very Interesting to see the use of a football helmet facemask and visor into the design of the logo. Pretty well done if you ask me.
So does Hasbro not have a trademark on the "Megatron" name or something? It's not like he is, or has been, "Decepticon Megatron" on packaging. There HAS to be something preventing Nike from using that name on Merchandise. Perhaps the split words "Mega" and "Tron" imply two different words (Lawyer friendly) and thus create the illusion of one?
Disney would probably have an issue w/ Nike using "Tron".
Wait- they don't transform?! PASS!
It kicks the ass of Sports Label easily. You can wear these.
I'm guessing they're pushing the limits of what's acceptable before they need a license. I mean, it has the name Megatron (okay, its Mega Tron, sure), and a pseudo-faction logo on it!
Haha, you must have not seen the most recent Optimus Prime and Grimlock hoodies! Those were WAY worse!
usually i dont care about Sports Athletes nicknames, and I'm not gonna say that Calvin johnson should stop being called "Megatron", but either they need to change the origin of how he got that nickname, or stop telling it because it makes him just sound really stupid
Size- sure is a head or so taller than most Transformers
Speed? -not really known for that
leaping ability? -Not really
Body control & hand-eye coordination? I dont know if these aspects have ever been examined in Transformers. I guess if you took into account that some continuities reveal him to be a gladiator but still, I think thats grasping its straws
Meh i'm satisfied with my current running shoes.
All I see is Megatron in name only.
Wow, nice clearly cheap-knock-off Transformers knock-off shoe there, Nike. Couldn't even go for an acceptable attempt at a 'Con logo.
these megs from a few years back were pretty hot. sadly I wear sasquatch size 16 and they weren't made that big so I had to pass. much better then the new calvin ones though, imo, and a helluva lot nicer package deal for TF fans.
Nothing resembles Megatron, so Nike can get away from being warned by Hasbro for this one.
I think it was more of a "Megatron is a destructive, imposing force...like Calvin Johnson" bit and not a strict "Holy crap, Megatron is physically so similar to Calvin" bit.
Well, this is a Calvin Johnson shoe with Transformer references due to the nickname. I actually like that the logo approximates the Decepticon logo without it being the Decepticon logo itself. They're not trying to make an actual Transformer shoe, just a Calvin Johnson shoe that plays on the Megatron nickname.
I don't see what the big deal is with the logo. I'm sure if they really wanted to do a Transformers shoe, connected to Calvin Johnson or not, they could if they wanted to (why would Hasbro say no, if approached).
Any Corner Back who totaly owns him in a game shoudl be called Optimus Prime heh...
If I see these I might actually consider picking them up.
Separate names with a comma.
