Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Class Optimus Prime
(We received this action figure from Hasbro for the purposes of conducting a review)
When Optimus Prime showed up at our house, my son was pretty excited. He loves when packages come for him once in a while, so this was a treat. He was eager to get it out of the box right away (who wouldn’t be!). I was pleasantly surprised that you didn’t have to cut any of those little plastic ties to get it out, it was just the twist tie ones that make it really easy to get the toy out and played with right away.
Once we had it out of the package I set him loose. He took off with it and I didn’t see him or the toy again for quite a bit. I actually had to go check on him in his room to see what he was up to, but he was busy playing and having fun. Eventually he made his way back downstairs because he wanted help transforming it into the vehicle.
To be honest, I don’t know how any kid can accomplish this task by themselves. The directions are really long and complex, but I found that we could not figure out how to transform this at all without using the directions.
The recommended age for this toy is 5 and up, which I agree with since my son is 6 and does enjoy playing with it, however, I think the directions for transforming it need to be easier for little kids to use.
Pros: Fun to play with, great action figure
Cons: Difficult to transform, can lose pieces easily
