As a Dad to two daughters, I get plenty of chances to play with toys. Of course, the majority of them don’t look like the toys I played with as a kid. So, I was excited to help out MommyB by reviewing the new PredaKing Transformer.
I was impressed with the amount of detail on PredaKing. The dragon heads have skin like spikes and extensions. There’s some hieroglyphic-like lettering on the wings, and Overall, he’s one of the best-looking Transformers I’ve seen. Admittedly, I only have a handful from the last 4 or 5 years. He’s very pose-able in his robot form with joints in his legs and arms. Also, his claw-like hands open to hold his weapons. As a robot, his weapons are two of his three dragon heads that turn into working rocket-launcher like guns.
It’s rated a 2 out 3 on the difficulty scale and I would say that’s probably accurate. I had trouble changing it from robot to dragon mode the first time as the instructions were good, but not great. I may be a little rusty though and Transformer fans used to playing with the current generation of these toys might not have any problem at all.
I’m partial to vehicle-based Transformers, but the dragon mode looks pretty good. The guns turn into the other two dragon heads and just as when they were guns, they shoot fireballs. So parents, be aware that this toy has projectiles! Overall, Predaking is a great-looking Transformer that I’d imagine kids would have a lot of fun with. Again, I’d say it was a little difficult to transform, so I’d recommend it for slightly older kids or those with lots of experience.
How many of your kiddos play with Transformers??
I received a Hasbro Transformers Prime Beast Hunters action figure in order to give you my honest thoughts on this product. The thoughts and opinons above are my own, yours may vary.
