Autobots insist upon waging the battle to destroy their evil forces, but the Decepticons are actually quite desirable in certain contexts. The sneakerhead world is a place where the Transformers villains have turned in as many memorable efforts as their red-crested counterparts, and Michael Bay being on board for at least a fifth film in the series ensures we’ll get more cross-promotion in the years to come. Pictured above is a mysterious ‘Decepticons’ Nike Lunar TR1, a design with no apparent big screen tie-in whose Detroit Lions base colorway has us thinking more of Ford Field’s ‘Megatron’ than anyone from Tarn. These don’t appear to be headed to retail which could stand as further evidence of a PE build for superstar wideout Calvin Johnson, and either way you’ll want to get an eyeful below because these probably aren’t going to be up for grabs.
