EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Battle just like Optimus Prime in the new Transformers movie with the Transformers: The Last Knight Optimus Prime Battle Blaster Sword. And just like the transforming Autobot robot, this roleplay weapon also has a transforming feature. It goes from blaster to sword in just a few steps. 

As a sword, it has a motion sensor so that every time you swing it around, lights and sound effects will play. You can also press the Transformers logo button to extend the tip of the sword and activate more battle sound effects and Optimus Prime phrases, such as "I’ll take you all on!"

To transform into a blaster, push the sword tip back in until it clicks into place. Fold down the top hand guard to reveal a pretend scope. Pivot the bottom hand guard back to create a hand grip and reveal a trigger. Every time you pull the trigger, the blaster will light up and play sound effects and Optimus Prime phrases, such as "Autobots, roll out!" (It doesn't actually blast anything.)

Is It Fun?
Transformation is what Transformers is all about, so we really like that this roleplay toy incorporates that important aspect of the Transformers storyline. Kids are going to like getting two toys in one and that it's easy to go back and forth between the two. This gives them everything they need to fight whatever Autobots versus Decepticons battle they can imagine. The lights and sound effects help bring the action and Optimus Prime to life, really helping kids feel like they are taking on the role of this classic Transformers character. It's going to be fun not only for fans of the new movie, but also for any young Transformers fan.
Who It’s For
The Transformers: The Last Knight Optimus Prime Battle Blaster Sword is for ages 3 and up. It will be fun for imaginative kids who like all things Transformers and who want to pretend to be just like one of their favorite Autobots.
What To Be Aware Of

This roleplay toy includes two AA batteries. Those are for the in-store try-me features, so we recommend replacing them before we play for best results.

Make sure you open up the entire package to find the instruction sheet.
