Like any well built robot, Transformers are the toys that refuse to die. Transformers first started making their way under Christmas trees in 1984 and they are still going strong. New for 2013 are the Transformers Construct Bots from Hasbro. The line includes a number of different Transformers that you construct, transform and customize.

Build, Transform and Customize – What is Not Too Love?
This is a pretty easy review to do. If your kids like Transformers and enjoy building toys like Lego, they will love the Transformers Construct Bots. The video really shows it all. The building instructions are clear and then once completed we loved all the moving joints on the Transformers. Here is the full info on the two Transformers Construct Bot Action Figures we reviewed –
TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT-BOTS SCOUT Action Figure Assortment
Build YOUR Bot! Each TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT- BOTS action figure includes a robot frame, armor, a weapon and accessory parts so you can construct, customize and convert your favorite TRANSFORMERS characters—each figure can convert from robot to vehicle and back without taking it apart! Plus, all the parts are interchangeable between all TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT- BOTS figures (each sold separately), so there’s almost no limit to what you can create! Choose from your favorite AUTOBOT or DECEPTICON characters. Eight figures in all to collect, including STARSCREAM and IRONHIDE. Each sold separately.
TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT-BOTS ELITE Action Figure Assortment
Build YOUR Bot! Each TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT- BOTS ELITE action figure includes a robot frame and lots of armor, weapons and accessory parts (50-55 pieces!) so you can construct, customize and convert your favorite TRANSFORMERS characters—each figure can convert from robot to vehicle and back without taking it apart! Plus, all the parts are interchangeable between all TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT-BOTS figures (each sold separately), so there’s almost no limit to what you can create! You can also store your figure in the included re-sealable case! Choose from 10 characters like WHEELJACK and SOUNDWAVE, each sold separately!
Of Course They Make An App
I think it is now required by law that every toy made must have an app. Okay, maybe that is technically not true, but it definitely feels that way. The Transformers app will allow you to customize your Transformer and then battle. While there is no real connection to the physical toys, it is a fun app for those who are very into Transformers and battles. The one plus about the lack of connection to the physical toys is that the kids can play the app when you are traveling and don’t have the Transformers.
Go Elite And Save Your Feet
Moms and Dads, what do you think of our new Transformers tag line? Okay, might need a little explanation. The Elite Class Series comes with a storage case, so you can at least try to get the kids to put all those little Transformers pieces back in the storage case. We all know if they don’t go in the case, they end up on the floor and us Moms and Dads end up stepping on them in the middle of the night. So, our pick between the Scout Class series (no storage box) and the Elite series – go with the Elite…and save your feet.
