VIDEO: Calvin Johnson Presented With Customized Megatron Action Figure

Back in December, TSN's Cabbie Richards stopped by the Detroit Lions' facility in Allen Park to chat with wide receiver Calvin Johnson. The interview was only uploaded last week, and I just discovered it in the last few days.

During the interview, Johnson talked about if there is a respect factor that comes along with being double teamed, if things have slowed down now that he has such good chemistry with Matthew Stafford, if he would embrace the role of the villain and how his "Megatron" nickname came about. At the end of the video, Richards presented Johnson with his very own Megatron action figure, which was customized with a Lions No. 81 jersey. Check it out:

Johnson has been seen wearing a Transformers hat in the past, although it wasn't customized for him. I'm a bit surprised we haven't seen something like the customized Megatron action figure sold in stores, because it seems there would be a market for that among Lions fans.
