Now some collectors might be horrified to see Eva with two Barbie dolls fresh out of the packages from 1985 and 1987. I’m not a doll collector and it gets me a little nervous too, but no matter, toys are meant to be played with and because of that she’s going to play with them. My mom gave Eva these toys this past Saturday at Eva’s Plaster Plus birthday party. Eva loves her dolls and she was so good with them today. That is not to say that eventually they will get played with and worn but that is what toys are for, for kids to enjoy them. Someone remind me o fthat when Eva find my stash of Transformers toys fresh and in their boxes and decides to rip them open. Just remind me I said this. I’m probably not going to listen or like it but remind me anyway.
Speaking of Transformers, yesterday I took a photo of my latest Transformers and let me tell you, I am disappointed in them. I thought I would enjoy the Power Core Combiners but I was wrong. This line has such potential but the toys are not good. the combiners were some of the more popular sets from the original Transformers because they were sets of 5 guys (the original one was 6 guys but subsequent teams only had 5.) This new series of bots now comes with a main robot and 4 drones that don’t even transformer into anything other than hands and feet and they are only either hands or feet, which is to say that if this guy is supposed to be the left hand that is all he’s ever gonna be. What I thought would be great was that in this series there are some two character sets with a main transforming robot and a mini-con. You can thank series like Transformers Energon, Armada and Cybertron for those guys. I thought this would be great because the bigger robot in the two robot sets could swap out for the main robot in the 5 robot sets. That would be fun but it isn’t.
The sets are shoddily made and the limbs don’t even stay in place or hold the robot up without some serious manipulation. I figured that with connector pegs on the main robot that had magnets at the end you would at least get magnets on the limbs to hold the limbs in place, but no the don’t. I’m pretty sure that I’ll get a few more of the two packs but may hold off on the five packs. The main robot in each set is actually pretty decent, at least in the two packs, haven’t been impressed with them in the 5 packs. I should just stick to the Classics line anyway.
