This is our first experience with Transformers, well my husband remembers them from when he was small but me and the children have never played with them before now, but from the look on their faces they were very happy.
The Transformers Mechtech range start at £12.99 and go right up to £69.99 so a good variety for all budgets.
They have 3 different levels 1 being the easier and 3 being advanced, the recommended age on them is 5+ we received levels 2 and 3.
The boxes they come in are a good size and have a clear font so you can see you transformer, some of the larger ones have sound effects and light up.
The boys really enjoyed this and could not wait to get started on another one.
The second one the boys opened was the Optimus Prime Autobot which RRP is £21.99, this is also level 2 age 5+.
Thomas gave up transforming this one after a good try, and asked Dad to transform for him, I have to say it took dad a good 40 minutes to do, so I decided to ask my brother who is a massive transformer fan in case my other half was just a little slow and it took him a good 30 minutes.
I think this is a great Transformer for collectors but the children found it a disappointment that they could not do it, although they had lots of fun playing with it as a figure.
The fourth and final one the boys played with was the Ultimate optimus prime which retails at £69.99, this is a stage 3 and is a really good size.
Lights and sound effect takes 2aa batteries
