Three kids are destined to own the competition in their functional Transformers costumes. Twitter user @MrBoak shared a video of the costumes in action with the caption "Seriously any other kids attending this fancy dress competition have no idea how badly they're about to get owned" on Sunday and it's already been shared 136,000 times.
Since the video was posted, Twitter has blocked the video possibly on copyright grounds but Japanese account @floren_word reshared the video on Monday. That tweet has been shared over 53,000 times while the video has been viewed over two million times.

The kids are dressed as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Starscream.
Parents have tried their hand at creating at-home Transformer costumes before. Les Railton shared his kids' Optimus Prime costume in 2016. The website Grey House Harbor has a how-to blog post to make your own kid-sized Optimus Prime costume out of cardboard.
Transforming cars aren't too far into the future. J-deite Ride LLP, Asratec Corp., Sansei Technologies, Inc., and Brave Robotics Inc. unveiled a prototype of their "ridable transforming humanoid robot" J-deite Ride last month. Anime mechanical designer Kunio Okawara (Mobile Suit Gundam, Yatterman, Armored Trooper Votoms, Time Bokan 24) collaborated on J-deite Ride's designs.
