My son discovered these yesterday and spent just enough time with them that I could tell he wanted them but not more than the legos we had intended to get.
I'll probably pick him up a set or two this weekend and see how it goes.
From what I can gather these are kinda like battle beast meets bakugan meets transformers, right?
You bump the car into something and it pops open, then you rub the "magic symbol" to see if it is an Autobot or Decepticon (duh?) and what its power is. Highest number wins, right?
There are stickers on the chest and it rotates on impact I think. One side has a sword, the other a laser gun and the third side is a fist I'll have to double check. I'm thinking its more like rock, paper, scissors kind of game.
There are two sets at Target which were selling for 8.96 at one point. They come with 3 of the bot shot toys. The Autobot one has Bumblebee, Sentinel Prime, and Prowl. The Decepticon one has Acid Storm, Nemesis Prime and I think Megatron.
