    CoreGamer.com has three Transformers Movie PS2 wireless controllers for sale. They are Megatron (black), Optimus Prime (blue), and Bumblebee (yellow). Each has interchangeable tops with either robot mode or vehicle mode. They are $24.99 except Megatron which for some reason is $26.99 (probably because it looks the best) but I'm sure Megatron's price will go down at some point.

    The description says something about "Robotic Chrome Components" and "Car Vehicle Metallic Finish" so at the very least it looks like they will have metallic paint. The links to the controllers are listed below. I couldn't find a post about these in a search so I thought I would post this for anyone interested. Sorry if this has already been posted.

    Too kiddie for me, if there were no pictures and just the character's color scheme, I would've liked it better. Maybe you can leave the tops off? The wireless seems good, but I have enough PS2 controllers

    I totally dig the Megatron controller. But I'd probably get one if they had it for the Xbox.

    I'm kind of surprised there isn't some for the 360. Seems like it would be the perfect fit with the faceplates that they made.

    Pray the damn buttons work well. Some 3rd party makers use these curved contact pads inside under the bottons and you have to mash the button down hard to get it to respond. They look like they might be funny to hold though. I'm guessing NO RUMBLE FEATURE though from the lack of mention.

    At least most retailers will carry these and $25 isn't a bad wireless price. Pray they can compete witht he $40 Logitech controller.

    Wonder why Megatron costs $2 more?
