My son loved putting this together. I was worried when the box said 7 years and up and he is only 5. He does really well with following directions, so he finished putting them together in a good amount of time. He loved that he was able to transform it after building it. Loved the toy!

When this campaign became available, my almost seven-year-old son and I were THRILLED to be able to partake! My son is a HUGE Lego fan (loves to create and customize), so this seemed like an awesome way to incorporate the Lego aspect to his interest in Transformers.
When the kit arrived, I was SO pleased to see that it had a case to store all of the parts in. Although it is made of very thin plastic, it is still a selling point to not have them all over the table/floor. I was also surprised at the amount of pieces that came with the kit! There were way more than I had anticipated. My son was very eager to dive right in, so that's just what we did… unfortunately, that's where the excitement ended.
Although directions were provided, my son had to ask for assistance multiple times, as the pieces were very hard to "snap" together. Once something was created, it was very difficult to "transform" as well. Even my husband (lover of Transformers, I might add), said that it was a touch challenging. He also commented at how the quality of the Transformers seemed much cheaper than what he was used to growing up. Since it took a long time to create a "bot", and then was challenging to transform, my son lost interest fairly quickly, and went right back to playing with his Legos. Unfortunately, this kit has not been played with since… even when asked if he wanted to play with it, he has refused.

Pros:
1) The instructions are very well illustrated, and easy to follow… even for my almost seven year old. My son was able to find the correct pieces and begin assembling.
2) Comes with plastic storage (wonderful feature).
3) Decent value, as there are several pieces included in the kit (can create two "bots").

Cons:
1) Pieces were very, very difficult to snap together. My son was constantly asking for assistance. Great for fine motor skills, but terrible if the child wants to do this "on their own".
2) Very difficult, and almost impossible to transform. In my opinion, needs a higher age rating.
3) Cheap material. Does not seem sturdy.
4) Even when transformed, the "Bot" never looked quite right. Seems like you have to alter it to make it stand.

Overall, this is not a kit I would invest money in. I will stick to Legos, as they are easier to put together, and give the child the sense of accomplishment. We received this product for free, as part of a BzzCampaign (from BzzAgent), in exchange for giving our thorough review.

Comments about Hasbro 1001119 Transformers Construct - Bots Optimus Prime vs. Megatron Construction Set:

I received this toy for free to test. I think I was more excited than my son when we received this in the mail. The size of the box alone was enough to impress my son, not to mention that it came with not one, but TWO robots he could build and customize as he saw fit. The packaging was very appealing and peaked my interest straight away.

My 7 year-old son went to work straight away on constructing his bots. With no assistance, or even supervision, he constructed Optimus Prime and Megatron in a short amount of time. He only had one issue constructing his bots. He reported that in some instances, he had a hard time connecting the pieces together (pushing the balls into sockets.) Though it aggravated him, he still managed putting them together on his own. He said the directions were easy and had no issue following them.

Others have mentioned difficulty transforming the bots and that it takes too long to manipulate the pieces. While I agree that these transformers take longer than the ones we played with back in the day, I infinitely prefer these bots to the "new" regular transformer toys being sold to kids today. About a year ago, we bought one of the "new" transformer toys for my son. It was $44 - a big expenditure for one toy in our house. Once he transformed Bumblebee from a car into a bot, we NEVER got it transformed back into a car. It wound up broken before it was ever made into a car again. While the time spent transforming these bots may irk some of the old timers, the kids will be pleased as punch that they can at least get them to actually transform!

My son is still playing with the ones we received and is looking forward to getting new sets to construct.

    Comments about Hasbro 1001119 Transformers Construct - Bots Optimus Prime vs. Megatron Construction Set:

    When my boys (6 and 4) laid eyes on this Ultimate Set of Construct Bots, their eyes lit up like a tree on Christmas! They dug in immediately. The colorful pictures in the instructions helped my six year old to be able to put together his Bot almost entirely on his own. Our four year old was able to pick out many of the pieces as we followed the directions, but he required a little more assistance to snap them together. Both boys really enjoyed watching their Bots come together and they will play happily with this set anytime it comes out. Now that they've made Optimus Prime and Megatron, they're having fun mixing it up and customizing their Bots. As a mom, I love that the set not only has well written directions and allows for lots of creativity, but that they come with a container to house all of the pieces! This is a great toy and I highly recommend it. My family received this set courtesy of BzzAgent, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Comments about Hasbro 1001119 Transformers Construct - Bots Optimus Prime vs. Megatron Construction Set:

    Note, my son and I received this from bzzagent to evaluate. My 6 year old son and I are very familiar with Lego and Transformers.

    Son's take:
    "I liked the Transformers toy. it was fun to Bild. it it was easy. I like it bicus it cod chas form. I dont haf to brac it apart to chas form it."

    Son's pros:
    Familiarity with Lego Hero factory made assembly easy, though he needed occasional help.
    He liked the fact they could transform them *without* having to take them apart (like Kreo).
    He liked the amount of extra accessories that came with each figure and the amount of customization that could be done.

    Son's cons:
    He only made it through halfway of the transformation instructions before needing my help.
    Rubber ball and socket joints were a challenge for him to snap together.

    Dad's take:
    Solid enough toy that can withstand mild rough play. The instructions were difficult, but not impossible to figure out. There are parts that do interlock in vehicle mode that prevent the pieces from moving from their intended place.

    Dad's pros:
    Separate stowaway containers for both figures, however they only can store them disassembled.

    Dad's cons:
    The plastic doesn't feel as durable as Lego Hero Factory.
    Even I got confused with transforming from robot to vehicle. It took me about 15 minutes to figure it out correctly, but once familiar with the steps, it only really takes a few seconds.

    Bottom line:
    This toy is great for kids who love building toys and everything Transformers. Unless your child is older (9-10) range, expect to help younger ones in assembly and transforming. Overall, I'd buy this as a gift and recommend it for kids in the age range.

      Comments about Hasbro 1001119 Transformers Construct - Bots Optimus Prime vs. Megatron Construction Set:

      I spent some quality playtime on a Saturday morning helping my son put together & play with the Transformer's Construct-bots. Overall, we enjoyed the toy. It kept him occupied and interested because he likes to "help" do things. (He's a little younger than the 7 year age recommendation) While the directions were clear & easy to understand, I did need to help him in assembling some parts because they were hard to snap together. It seemed like a disadvantage at first but I have noticed that the toy stays together better than some building toys since the pieces fit snugly. He doesn't really care to "transform them" because it seems a little more confusing but enjoys making them battle. It is an enjoyable toy and one that helps him work on his cognitive skills and instruction reading and has introduced him to the world of Transformers which he hadn't really played with before now.

      (I am a Bzzagent and received a free product in exchange for my honest opinion.)

      My six-year-old loved the creative design play in making his own Transformers, characters his dad and teenage brother both enjoyed years ago. Overall, these were a big hit. I love that the basic construction is laid out in easy-to-follow illustrated instructions, yet still giving the child some freedom to customize them to their liking. The pieces also stay together nicely when supposed to. I also appreciate that this toy comes in its own container!! I can't tell you how many toy sets with small parts we've gotten rid of because pieces get scattered and lost. No complaints at all, really. We will be buying more of these toys in the future!

      Comments about Hasbro 1001119 Transformers Construct - Bots Optimus Prime vs. Megatron Construction Set:

      I received this set for free as a BzzAgent to try and review. My almost 6 year old son was so excited to give this a try. I will say that he enjoyed putting it together and did so without too much help from my husband or I. The instructions seemed easy enough for him to follow. I love the fact that each one has it's own case to keep all the parts separate.

      However it is a nightmare to transform! He gets very frustrated that he can't do it himself and the parts are always coming off when trying to complete this task. Even my husband has said it is difficult.

      Not sure if I would by another to add to his set. :(

      Comments about Hasbro 1001119 Transformers Construct - Bots Optimus Prime vs. Megatron Construction Set:

      I received the Transformers Construct-Bots for free from BzzAgent.

      The set-up was quick and easy. My 5yr old handed me the pieces and I snapped them together. The instructions are just that simple. The rubber stoppers on the connector pieces are a fantastic idea because it keeps the Bots from coming apart. Do not be puzzled by the extra pieces like I was. The extra parts are there to encourage your child to customize his/her Transformer.

      Constructed, the Bots look and feel fragile but so far they have lasted hours of play.

      Each Bot comes with a storage case. My son can place the entire constructed Bot inside the storage box. No deconstruction required.

      I do believe the price is too high.

      Comments about Hasbro 1001119 Transformers Construct - Bots Optimus Prime vs. Megatron Construction Set:

      We received these toys for free from BzzAgent, and my 6-year old son was thrilled about these toys the moment we received the Transformers Construct-Bots package in the mail. Almost immediately, he began begging my husband & I to let him put it together.

      He's very good with little pieces & parts, so although he asked for a bit of help assembling the bots, if he'd had to, I'm pretty sure he could have put them both together on his own, so the toys were definitely age-appropriate. After putting both bots together, he has literally spent hours playing with them, switching out all the pieces, and transforming them. And after a few weeks of having them, he shows no signs at all of growing tired of them!

      As a Mom, I'm IN LOVE with the included red & purple cases that came with the bots. Unlike most of his legos and other toy sets that get put together and then put away, these cases will work perfectly for holding & storing all the little pieces when he decides he's done playing with the bots for awhile, so I won't have to worry about him losing the pieces.

      My son has also really enjoyed the Construct-Bots mobile app. As soon as I told him that the app was available, he couldn't wait to get on my phone and try it out, and it's been a great accompaniment to the real-life bots.

      Overall, I'm thrilled with these toys, and I'll definitely be looking for more of these for him in the future!

      I received this toy free from BzzAgent. My husband grew up with Transformers, so when I told him this was coming, he was very excited. This turned out to be a great toy for my son and husband. My son is 6 and it was a bit hard for him to put some of the pieces together, especially the ball joints. The instructions were easy enough to follow and working together my husband and the kids got them both put together in about 30 minutes. I don't know if that is good or bad. It is a bit hard for the kids to transform them from robot to vehicle and back again. They had a ton of fun driving them all over the house in vehicle mode. Since the pieces don't lock into anything, it is hard to keep them in the form they need to be to drive. Especially with Megatron, his front wheels just kind of hover in front of him. I like Optimus' vehicle better. They had fun trying to put all of the weapons on them at once so they were ultra-destructive. It is very nice to have the cases for each of the Transformers, but it would be nice if they were a little deeper so you didn't have to take them apart to fit them in the case. My husband would like to get some of the other construct-bots and see what he can do to merge them together. Overall this is a fun toy, but I still don't know if it is better for my 6 year old or my husband who is still a kid at heart.
