Transforming Robot Toys Are Sushi in Disguise

Tuna. Shrimp. And salmon. These aren't pieces of fish but rather transforming robots. Meet Osushi Sentai Sharidaa. They are robots that transform into sushi. Holy mackerel!

Osushi (お寿司) is the polite way to refer to "sushi," "sentai" (戦隊) means "squad", while "sharidaa" (シャリダー) is a pun. "Shari" is the rice used to make sushi; adding the "daa" is a pun on "it is" ("da" or だ) and makes it sound like kind of like "ranger" (レンジャー or "renjaa") in Japanese. You know, like Power Rangers.

As you can see in these photos courtesy of GetNews, the sushi robots are pretty neat:

Takara Tomy, which has been key in creating the Transformers toys, will release the sushi robots this July in Japan, pricing them at 850 yen each. IT Media reports that Takara Tomy hopes to eventually releasing these abroad.

    They're very reminiscent of those Maccas transformer toys that came out in the mid 90's. Those things were the best Happy Meal toys ever.

      Had the exact same thought. Think we've still got ours kicking around somewhere, although one of the fries went missing at some point.
