Ethan’s collection of Ben 10 toys, distributed by Prima Toys, has powered up with the addition of the Deluxe Omnitrix. Now he can transform into one of 10 different Alien Heroes, by activating his Omnitrix device. Let me give you clue as to which is his favourite alien – his catch phrase is “smell you later”. Boys!
Benjamin Tennyson has got to be the most famous 10 year old boy in cartoon history. The Ben 10 franchise is Cartoon Network’s longest running-franchise to-date, spanning 12 years. The series has won 3 Emmy Awards and had phenomenal retail success.
I think the success of the Ben 10 collection is not only due to the cool characters, but how interactive the toys are. With the Omnitrix, Transform-N-Battle sets, RustBucket Playset, figurines and backpack, children get to transform and allow their imaginations to take over.
Benjamin Tennyson moonlights as Ben 10, a superhero with special powers that he discovered from a young age when his signature Omnitrix device miraculously attached itself to his wrist. The Omnitrix gives Ben 10 the power to alter his genetic makeup and transform into 10 alien creatures that help the world and prevent disasters, save people from alien invasions and fight off the bad guys.
Ben just dials in the Alien he needs to get the job done and slams down on the Omnitrix to activate it. The Deluxe model allows you to turn and press the dial to select an Alien. Press button to hear 100+ Alien phrases, and move your arm to motion activate Alien sound FX.
Ethan now has all 3 Extra Large Battle Figures in his collection. The figurines stand 25 cm tall, and are fully articulated.
There is Diamondhead, Heat Blast and Four Arms. Diamondhead’s body is composed of extremely thick organic green crystals. He has the ability transform his limbs into diamond weapons such as blades and bludgeons. Heatblast is Ben 10’s go-to alien when he needs to melt or burn anything in a flash, because Heatblast is made up of live volcanic magma. Four Arms is known for his incredible strength and his ability to break through most objects.
One down, and two still standing.
Diamondhead still going strong …
… but ends up in the pile.
Each figurine is available in a variety of sizes including mini, basic, large and deluxe.
Take it to the next level and transform to battle it out as Heat Blast or Diamondhead. Check out Ethan in our other Ben 10 review as Heat Blast, with the extending fireball. Here he is transforming into the Alien superpower Diamondhead, complete with extending battle blades.
