A lot of fun to build, but less to play with,
This review is from: KRE-O Transformers Sideswipe Toy (Toy)
My son is an avid transformers collector and a new range of transformer-like toys caught his attention just prior to his birthday.
First impressions are that there are a huge number of pieces considering the size of the car/robot. My son is fortunately also a keen builder of some reasonably complex lego, so this did not put him off. However, the instructions and the pictures were not as clear as they could be and as such, there were many requests for help from Mum and Dad.
Once final made, the models look good, however, they are quite unstable. For example, I would have imagined the car at least would have been stable enough to push around, but because of the intricacy, bits tend to fall of. The chassis also tends to come apart (which is quite key to being a successful Autobot I'd imagine!)
The models do look good and my son is happy with it, but I feel unlike his other transformer toys, this one will be confined to a shelf.
Good fun, educational to build, but not long lasting appeal.
