Nike, which sponsors Johnson’s shoes, and Hasbro, which created the Transformers, collaborated for the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, a purple-and-red shoe that has a matching Megatron Decepticon action figure.
Johnson is in disbelief that he has his own action figure.
“Never thought that would happen,” Johnson said.
The transformer is actually part of a three-shoe package for Nike, which will have the Trainer Max, the Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II and the Nike CJ81 Megatron Elite TD Cleat.
Nike is selling a limited edition Megatron Rises 3-Pack, featuring all three shoes and the action figure. There are 81 of them being made available for sale.
“They are coming out with a little package or something like that,” Johnson said. “It’s going to be cool. It’s a cool little deal.
“I think kids will like it. I think everybody will like it. It’s cool shoes, plus you get a little toy.”
