Predestined to become the greatest ever, ESPN named him “Super Freak” during the 2007 NFL Combine while former Detroit Lions team mate Roy Williams labeled him “Megatron”, as in the leader of Decepticons from the film Transformers. But just how “uncanny” is Calvin Johnson Jr.‘s abilities on the football field? The records he broke during the past six years in the NFL speaks volumes. Elected to the Pro Bowl three consecutive years, Johnson had the most receiving yards per season in the league during the last two year, including a record of 1,964 yards, the most by any NFL player since Jerry Rice in 1995.

Still unimpressed? Maybe this will change your mind. Introducing the Megatron Collection from Nike Football and Hasbro, the toy maker that created the Transformers franchise.  Featuring the Nike CJ 81 Trainer Max, Nike Air Trainer SC II and CJ 81 Elite TD, each now carries a new Decepticons-theme colorway and insignia. In addition, for the first time, Hasbro created a special action figure inspired by Johnson’s machine-like physiology. As latest The Game Plan initiative by Champs Sports, the Hasbro x Nike Football – Megatron Rises Pack will be available at Nike Yardline in Cherry Hill (New Jersey) on Tuesday, November 26. Champs and Nike will also give away the much sought after limited edition Hasbro action figure with the purchase of the Megatron CJ 81 Trainer.

Complementing the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, the Megatron Nike SC Trainer II draws more muted inspiration from the TRANSFORMERS character.

Nike Megatron Rises Box – $550.00
Inspired by the ALLSPARK from TRANSFORMERS lore, the box of the Megatron Rises 3-Pack is a unique, converting cube-shaped design. Decorated entirely with original artwork, the lines of the box mimic robotic surfaces and are augmented by triangles, hash marks, x’s, and o’s in reference to the football field and offensive passing plays. The effect is, like Calvin Johnson, “More Than Meets The Eye” – a package that opens to reveal all three shoes and the Hasbro action figure.
