We’ve gone a bit Transformers mad at Stuff Towers lately. In fact, world famous Podline host, Andy Madden, has started coming into work in a dustbin and then ‘transforming’ into his normal self when he gets to his desk.Andy is, of course, an Autobot, a force for good, but a specialist American website, TFsource.com, can now supply you with a real Decepticon – only this one plays MP3s.Soundwave (pictured) appeared in the original ‘80s cartoon as the Transformer who became a tape deck. Of course such technology is now about as cutting edge as a satsuma, so he’s been dragged into the 21st Century with the inclusion of an SD card slot where his tapes would go.Available in either traditional blue or iPod white, Soundwave’s die-cast parts are fully working, meaning you can transform him from robot to tape deck in a matter of seconds (with a bit of practice). More than meets the eye? You better believe it.Essentials Takara/Tomy Soundwave Price: US$90 plus $16 shipping On sale: Now Contact: TFsource Related stories: Transformers Scalextric – a dream come true Robots invade PC World Gadget of the Day – Music Box
