Toy News: atmos Teams up with Takara Tomy for Exclusive Lebron James Optimus Prime Masterpiece
atmos is an apparel store that features limited edition clothing sometimes in partnership with celebrities. Via their atmos Tokyo blog, atmos has announced a partnership with both Lebron James and Takara Tomy to launch both a pair of shoes and a redeco of Masterpiece Optimus Prime exclusive to their stores!
According to the atmos blog, these products will be available on Saturday March 2, 2019. The Optimus Prime, officially called the "atmos safari LEBRON JAMES Ver." has a yellow and silver deco modeled after the Air Max 1 Safari shoes that will be released at the same time. The shoes will be ¥17,500 (about $159.00 USD). Optimus Prime himself will be ¥20,000 (about $181.00 USD).
Both items will be available in-store in Japan and on the Japanese online store. Shops in the United States will be carrying the shoes, but not the Optimus Prime figure. Previous exclusives of this kind were sold via Bathing Ape and sold out very quickly and go for high prices on the secondary market, so if you want this piece, start contact sources in Japan now!
