    Haha...I always knew I was meant to work at Casio!

    When I was in college, I worked at a Casio Outlet store...and I loved it! It was one of my favorite jobs...and they always had the most creative watches.

    I remember there was a digital camera watch, an mp3 player watch, and all sorts of G-Shocks. There were even Titanium G-Shocks in japan called Mr. G's.

    Its nice to see Casio jump in on the Transformers bandwagon, because they can probably make some other great stuff.

    This might explain why that Real Gear movie-bot resembled a G-Shock?!

    Very cool! Nice find.
    I hope these will see a release outside Japan as well. Could go for one of these.

    Appear to be 15,540 Yen each, so US$128. Not sure what they do to make them worth that.

    I'm puzzled why everyone seems to like these so far, but the innovatively designed Seiko ones received mostly jeers. These look like every digital watch made since the early '80s to me.

    These are older designs and just add in some transformers design on them. Kinda of expensive for these old version of the watches.

    Because these won't make you look stupid wearing them.

    I've gotta say that I think a big honkin' black plastic digital watch looks pretty dated. So I disagree.

    Oh crap, you're right! Deal breaker. Maybe it was just a lazy error on the concept art. Hopefully someone will fix that on the final.
