Hmmm, I would have thought that with summer blockbusters well behind us now, no one would want to continue flogging the Transformers movie franchise with tie-in products. Apparently I’m wrong, or someone over at Razer must have gotten their calendars all mixed up. Razer has teamed up with Hasbro to commemorate the release of the third instalment of the Transformers movie on DVD and Blu-ray releases by offering a collector’s edition peripheral line.
Folks who have been eyeing a mouse from Razer all this while but never really got to it might be pleased to know that the Razer DeathAdder mouse will now come in four special versions that feature Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, and Shockwave, where all four legends are crafted and transmuted to deliver unparalleled gaming performance with a Transformers slant.
What’s the whole point of a mouse if there is no proper surface for it to glide across? This is where Razer’s got your back as well, with the dual-sided Razer Vespula mouse mat that features one side representing the Autobots alongside a speed-enhancing surface, while flipping it over will reveal a control-enhancing surface that showcases your favored allegiance. After all, don’t the Decepticons love to control the situation?
You will be able to pick up the special edition Razer DeathAdder: Transformers: Dark of the Moon Collector’s Edition Gaming Mouse for $59.99 or €59.99 if you happen to live across the pond. Of course, the hardware specifications will remain the same as that of the stock DeathAdder mouse, including a 3500dpi 3.5G infrared sensor, 1000Hz Ultrapolling with 1ms response time, 5 Hyperesponse buttons, and On-the-Fly sensitivity adjustments. Bear in mind that if you are a southpaw like me, clearly we are discriminated against since Razer’s special edition DeathAdder mouse is clearly meant for right handers only. Sniff!
The Razer Vespula is not going to be that cheap either, retailing for $34.99 Stateside and €34.99 in Europe.
