We’re currently reading book 11 in the How to Train Your Dragon book series written by Cressida Cowell. It’s fair to say that since we began the first book last September, that my son has been captivated by all things dragon related. He also loves watching Transformers on tv, so I just knew that the Transformers: The Last Knight Mega 1-Step Turbo Changer Dragonstorm Figure from Transformers: The Last Knight Mega 1-Step Turbo Changer Dragonstorm Figure, was going to be a sure-fire hit here.
If you’ve watched the Transformer: The Last Knight film you will already have come across the Dragonstorm figure, who changes from a knight to a dragon. We’ve not watched the film but that hasn’t stopped my 7 year old son playing with this toy a lot since it arrived.
The Transformers: The Last Knight Mega 1-Step Turbo Changer Dragonstorm Figure is aimed at children aged 5 years and over and requires 2 x AAA batteries to work (demo batteries are included). The battery casing is on the side of the dragon, and the red on/off switch sits between the dragon wing fixings. The dragon wings and tail/weapon are provided loose, along with the main body of this toy, and an instruction leaflet.
This toy is quite a beast, with his three dragon heads. The wings and tail clip into place, and are easily removable. In fact, my son found that the wings detach a little too easily for his personal liking. But he has loved playing with this toy in dragon mode.
By holding the handle on top of the dragon and moving it backwards and forwards you can make the central dragon head move and all three heads light up. It will also talk and the dragon wings flap up and down. It’s really rather cool apparently.
There are 20 different phrases and sounds that the Transformers: The Last Knight Mega 1-Step Turbo Changer Dragonstorm Figure can make. Also if you happen to have one of the 1 Step Turbo Changer figures you can activate Cyberfire and reveal hidden symbols with the lights of the dragon. We don’t have one of the figures so haven’t been able to try out this feature.
In a few easy movement you can transform the dragon into the knight and the tail then becomes a weapon that can be placed in either fist.
(Or left as a tail!)
He’s rather a tough looking figure once he’s transformed.
By pressing the button on the knights chest you activate the lights and sounds feature again.
Priced at £79.99 the Transformers: The Last Knight Mega 1-Step Turbo Changer Dragonstorm Figure (Amazon Affiliate link below) has a number of features which have kept my son entertained. The toy is well constructed and should withstand a lot of play. It’s been a roaring success here.
