Detroit Lions Wide Receiver Calvin Johnson is widely regarded as the best player at his position in the NFL. His superstar status earned him the nickname ‘Megatron’. With a nickname like ‘Megatron’ it was only a matter of time for Transformers collaboration. Nike has increased their marketing efforts for Calvin Johnson lately. Johnson was recently featured in a television campaign with Diddy, and now he is set to release three signature shoes along with a Transformers action figure.
The CJ81 Transformers Megatron 5-inch action figure is available exclusively in the Nike CJ81 ‘Megatron Rises’ 3-pack. The 3-pack features the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II, and the Nike Megatron CJ81 Elite TD cleats. The ‘Megatron Rises’ pack provides a performance football cleat, an off-field performance shoe, and a casual sneaker. Nike will only be releasing 81 of the ‘Megatron Rises’ pack in honor of the Wide Receiver’s number. The Nike CJ81 ‘Megatron Rises’ 3-pack will release online at Nike.com on November 29th in limited quantities for $550. Look for this pack to sell out quick, so if you miss out try ordering through resellers on eBay.com.
