Transformers Age of Extinction Construct-Bots Dinofire Grimlock & Optimus Prime Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

The Transformers Age of Extinction Construct-Bots: Dinofire Grimlock & Optimus Prime from Hasbro is a 77-piece set that builds a 10-inch Dinofire Grimlock figure and an Optimus Prime figure. Grimlock has a light-up Firebreath Launcher feature that makes his head light up and launches a missile when the gear on his back is turned. There are also two shoulder mounted cannons that fire three missiles each. The smaller, Optimus figure can ride Grimlock by snapping him onto Grimlock's back.

The figures in this Construct-Bots set come in pieces and it's up to you to build them in either robot or dinosaur/vehicle modes. Whichever mode you choose, the figures can be transformed into the other mode. Transforming Grimlock from robot to dinosaur took us about 10 minutes the first time we tried it. Optimus took about five minutes.
