Ben 10 Toys Review

Recently I got sent two Ben 10 toys to review: A wind-up Crashhopper toy and a “Rook’s proto-truck” playset. I’ll start with the Crashhopper toy.

It’s fairly small and disappears pretty quickly, and it’s pretty hard to wind up. But…

It jumps really, REALLY high, just like in the show.

Wheeeeeee…

Ahem. Also it’s pretty well proportioned towards the other character toys, which is proved by the (exclusive) character toy of Rook Blonko in the proto-truck set. But it’s only exclusive because it’s all one colour and is kinda transparent. HOWEVER…

This makes it look good AWESOME when held up to the light.¬†Except the eyes. I don’t see the point of making the eyes look normal. The actual truck is interesting because, when you press a button on a handle in the back of the truck, it quickly appears to fall to pieces awkwardly TURNS INTO A SPACESHIP! With a little intervention from that point, it can turn from¬† a normal plumbing truck to a fully-fledged battleship. And remember the handle? You can use it to prevent the need to hold on to the top of the spaceship and to give a much better play experience. Also Rook fits in the truck’s front seat, and the truck has a back seat which you can put other toys in. So it’s compatible with the other action figures, including the one of rook, which COMPLETELY ELIMINATES the need to make an exclusive toy with it.

Really. Why’d you even bother to make it in the first place?

Also, It’s in a huge box, which I don’t see the point of, as when put together every last bit of it would fit comfortably in a shoebox.

*Sigh*…

Well, they’re still pretty good toys and if you like Ben 10 I’d definitely recommend you get them. Out of 10, um… 9. Yeah, I could have done it out of 20, but it was an even number so I simplified it. [Insert sign-off phrase here]!
