Hot Wheels Ballistiks Combat Cannon Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Ballistiks are new Hot Wheels vehicles that can be folded up into balls. To transform the vehicles back into cars, crash the vehicles into a hard surface and watch it pop back into car form. There are 24 Ballistiks vehicles to collect (Each sold separately.) and several Ballistiks playsets that let kids launch the Ballistiks cars to transform them. The Combat Cannon is easy to use. Place the included Ballistiks vehicle onto the launcher. Pull back on the handle and the vehicle fold it up into a ball, drop into the launcher, and then shoot out of the long-range barrel.

Is It Fun?

This is a fun new line in the Hot Wheels collection. It's easy to fold up and transform the Ballistiks cars, but the Combat Cannon adds some action and excitement to the play. Kids will enjoy shooting their Ballistiks cars and seeing just how far the cars can go.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels Ballistiks Combat Cannon is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Make sure that before you play you remove and discard the try-me tab.

Once in awhile the car will get stuck in the cannon. The top and bottom of the launcher can be taken apart so that you can remove the car. Just slide over the orange switch on the bottom of the launcher and the two parts will come undone. Make sure you slide the orange switch back when you're ready to play again so that the launcher stays together.

Don't pull back too fast on the handle or you might have problems transforming and shooting the car.

The Combat Cannon is not for use with some Hot Wheels vehicles, according to Mattel.
