One Shall Stand, One Shall Take a Seat on This Papercraft Transformers Couch
When they’re not ripping out each other’s circuits or trading histrionic catchphrases back and forth, even the mightiest of Autobot and Decepticon warriors enjoys kicking back and letting all their troubles and PTSD melt away on the comfort of their living room couch. Sadly, never has this piece of home furnishing been made in the same scale as Transformers figures of our youth, forced to remain standing and never experience the simple pleasure of reclining back or laying their metallic heads on an armrest — until now! Takara Tomy, the Japanese manufacturer of Transformers toys, has finally heard our incessant pleas for a practical, yet stylish, couch fit for Optimus Prime and is currently offering printable papercraft furniture on the their official website. So if you’re handy with a pair of scissors and tape, this is something you owe it to yourself to check out.
Technically, the couch was designed for the Arms Micron mini-robots that come packaged with the larger Transformers Prime series of figures, but, if one looks hard enough, there are plenty of ’80s Transformers toys just the right size for parking their die-cast derriéres onto a seat. But why stop there? The couch can just as easily accommodate any Star Wars or G.I. Joe figure. Heck, invite them all over for an insane — and largely implausible — crossover event where Cobra Commander clashes with Darth Vader for the TV remote!
Takara Tomy has two versions of the couch in Autobot and Decepticon colors, so it’s up to you whether you want your couch to uphold the freedom of all sentient beings or subjugate the masses.
