I grew up with three brothers. I now have three sons. I know ALL about Transformers. My brothers loved them almost as much as my kids do, which is why I was so excited for my boys to try out the new Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Delux, made by Hasbro. We got our Transformer in the mail and, after a brief but awesome wrestling match, Casey came out the victor, and the badass toy was now his.
Fortunately for the other boys, the Transformers Website has some pretty awesome stuff for them to do while they waited for their turn.
…Their turn to cry. Transformers are uniquely frustrating in that once you get them to “transform” one can never get them back to whatever else they were supposed to be. My son cried. I growled…HARD…my husband eventually threw it against a brick wall in frustration. And you know what happened? Nothing. Those are some strong mothereffers. It didn’t break! So we tried it again. Nope. No breaking. So, while we couldn’t get the piece of shit back into the form of whatever it was supposed to be in the first place, we now have a “frustration toy” that we can throw against brick walls without having to worry about having to pick up the pieces. And that, my friends, is worth the $14.99 to $19.99 you would actually have to pay for these if you weren’t just sent them like me.
