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.
Sky Shadow is one of five collectible vehicles with an aviation
theme (models in this range various types of planes) which
can be fitted together to build Superion 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 Superion
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
several very similar looking aircraft. Also when all of the
individual Transformers are stuck together to build Superion
Maximus it does indeed just look like the robot is constructed
of several planes. 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.
