In the first team up between Nike and Hasbro, the sneaker company announced the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, inspired by both NFL player Calvin Johnson and the robotic leader of the Decepticons. Also, the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max is accompanied by an exclusive toy of the Decepticon leader.
Produced in collaboration with Hasbro, the 5-inch purple and red TRANSFORMERS MEGATRON action figure inspired by Calvin Johnson mirrors the cues of his signature Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max. The distinctive red cruciform pattern found on the toebox and upper of the trainer are utilized on the arms and feet of the figure. Johnson’s signature appears alongside the iconic DECEPTICON shield on MEGATRON’S chest. In robot mode, the MEGATRON figure is designed to be broad yet agile, and the iconic “wing” jet conversion is meant to mirror Johnson’s speed and power.
Nike is making the most of the collaboration, also announcing a limited edition “Megatron Rises 3-Pack,” which features the CJ81 trainer alongside variants, the Megatron Nike Air Trainer SCII and Nike CJ81 Megatron Elite TD Cleat.
