Refraktor Returns! Decepticon Transforms Into Canon EOS R5 Camera

Recently we covered the upcoming Optimus Prime figure that transforms into a Canon DSLR. So naturally, many people wondered why Refraktor wasn’t also present since being a camera was that Decepticon’s gimmick. Wonder no more as Hasbro Pulse announced that Refractor would join Prime as an officially licensed (80% scale) EOS R5 Camera.

Sadly, Refraktor does not combine three transformers into one camera. Instead, Refractor is just one robot. However, the Decepticon comes with a camera accessory split into three pieces, but the parts do not transform into robot mode.  Refraktor is priced at $144.99 and is expected to ship on the 25th of May, 2023. Pre-orders are open until September 9th.
