Hear the clank of metal against metal. See vehicles transform
before your eyes into awesome robots. Feel the incredible
power of good against evil. Transformers, the original robots
in disguise, have arrived with a new line up and brand new
storyline. The quest for Energon, a rare energy supply that
the opposing forces of Autobots and Decepticons have been
battling over for eons, continues on Earth...
new Energon range of Transformers toys will
take most of us 30-somethings back to our childhood. Although,
sadly, we never had anything quite as cool as these. Sure
the old Transformers range was great... but this new
collection of toys gives even greater value for money.
Powerlinx Combiners range of Transformers toys consists
of a whole range of vehicles that can transform into robots.
Each is one of a set of five which, when purchased together
can be joined to build a giant Transformer. Wideload
is one of five collectible vehicles with a construction theme
(models in this range include cranes and diggers) which can
be fitted together to build Constructicon Maximus.
collection of five vehicles will set you back around £35
(each one is priced £6.99). That's not bad value for
money when you add up what you are getting here - five vehicles
that transform into six (if you include the mega Constructicon
Maximus) different robots.
the downside, it would have been more impressive if the developers
had made all of the vehicles different. As it is, you get
two diggers and two cranes in this range. Also when all of
the individual Transformers are stuck together to build Constructicon
Maximus it does indeed just look like the robot is constructed
of two cranes and two diggers. If a little more thought had
gone into making the robots look more like robots then these
would have been much better.
vehicles are still great value for money and will certainly
appeal to Transformers fans.
