Looks like Optimus Prime may have a new ally with this real life Transformer who goes by the name of Brave Robot.

Brave Robot is the creation of Japanese designer Kenji Ishida. Kenji, who is working with a company named JS Robotics, looks to be on the verge of something really cool. The robot is remote controlled and can change into a car and back again into a robot with just the touch of a button.

This “toy” is no joke. It changes all by itself and does not need any help from us earthlings. This is the eighth version of the robot and it looks as though JS Robotics is now working on version nine.

Check out the videos below and prepare to relive your childhood dream of owning a real Transformer.

Thankfully Michael Bay was not asked to shoot footage for these videos.
