Razer unveils licensed Transformers 3 gaming peripherals

By Posted 30 Jun 2011, 16:08

Computer peripheral manufacturer Razer USA has introduced some pretty impressive gaming accessories over the past few months including the Dragon Age II-themed limited edition DeathAdder mouse, the Star Wars: The Old Republic peripheral range (which includes a keyboard, mouse, headset and mouse mat) and Battlefield 3 / Mass Effect 3-themed gaming accessories.

What makes the Dragon Age 2-themed DeathAdder mouse stand out from the others is the fact that it comes with a red dragon and a red II etched onto the top. What’s impressive about the Star Wars: The Old Republic gaming accessories on the other hand is that they all come with interchangeable Sith Empire and Galactic Republic faction icons (you can read more about them here).

Today however we have news that will interest all you Transformers fans out there. According to Andrew Freedman over on the pcmag.com website, Razer has just unveiled its new Transformers 3 Collector’s Edition gaming peripherals. The new Transformers lineup consists of three different products: a laptop case, a dual-sided Razer Vespula mouse mat and a series of Razer DeathAdder mice.

First up is the series of DeathAdder mice, which come in Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Shockwave and Megatron-themed color combinations, each being branded with the Decepticon or Autobot logo. The Transformers mice – which can be purchased for $69.99 from the manufacturer’s website – are designed for ergonomic, right-handed use and include a response time of 1ms and 3500 dpi.

Meanwhile, the Transformers-themed Razer Vespula mouse mat – which costs $44.99 – features two sides that gamers can choose from: a speed-increasing surface that features Autobot leader Optimus Prime and a side with a surface that is meant to increase control. The second side features an image of Decepticon leader Megatron. It also comes with a gel-filled wrist rest for added comfort.

The final product on the list is the Transformers laptop case, which holds laptops up to 15-inches. The cases feature a hard plastic shell, with padding on the inside for added protection. They come in exactly the same color schemes as the mice: yellow, red, purple and silver, and come with either the Autobot or Decepticon logo. The cases aren’t available at this stage, but do carry a price tag of $49.99.

Unfortunately the Transformers 3 Collector’s Edition gaming peripherals are only available in North America. Would you buy any of the Transformers-themed accessories?
