Transformers Age of Extinction Figures {Review}

dino

Transformers fans everywhere! Check out the new line of Hasbro Transformers Age of Extinction figures. We received the Scorn 2-in-1 and Grimlock Flip and Change figures to try and my son loves playing with them!

Scorn 2-in-1

Scorn has the jaws of a dino and the personality of a tank. He’s a rumbling, thundering war hammer on legs.

This 2-in-1 figure converts from robot mode into dino mode and vice versa.  It comes with a sword and its tail becomes a spear in robot mode.

The package comes with illustrated instructions that allow you to change the dino into robot in 19 steps. I had to do the changes for my son but I can see how older children (8 +) can do that themselves by looking at the diagrams.

I like that the figure has some soft plastic/flexible parts and a pretty intricate design. I also like that it is small enough to fit inside his backpack and it’s light and easy to carry.

Transformer Age of Extinction figures are available as Bumblebee, CrossHairs and Dinobut Slug and you can find them at your local ToysRUs store right now for $16.99 or online for $12.67.

Grimlock Flip and Change

The Transformers Grimlock figure has robot and dinosaur modes like the Scorn.  This one is a little bit larger than the Scorn figure but it is a good size for children to play with.  My son really likes that he can easily switch between the dino and the robot without our help, you just have to follow a few easy steps and the figure is in the robot mode and back.

At his age (almost four) this is his favourite figure out of the two. I believe because it is easy to change it on his own, he struggles getting the Scorn figure to change because of the many steps and it makes sense since it is a toy for way older children. This toy is advertised for children ages 5 and up.

  • 2-in-1 Grimlock figure.
  • Figure converts from robot mode to dino mode and back.
  • Flip to change from one mode to the other.

The Transformers Grimlock figure is available at ToysRUs for $19.99.

    Transformers sure have changed over the years! These look great. I don’t think I’ve ever met a boy who doesn’t love tranformers. We’ve got a ton of them here that my boy used to play with all the time. He’s a lot older now and still won’t part with them, even if they sit on a shelf collecting dust or in a box in the closet.

    My son would love these, he loves watching Transformers Rescue Bots, and he is 5 now! His favorite character is Heedway ? I think that’s how you spell it

    One of my grandsons is a huge fan of both dinosaurs and transformers so this would be right up his street. 🙂
