Name: Megatron
Function: Tyrannical despot
Subgroup: Transformers Prime
Size Class: Kinder Surprise

The Kinder Surprise is a chocolate egg which has a tiny toy in it. This was a huge part of my childhood; back in the day, it would be a random toy and you've no idea if you were going to get a lump of plastic moulded into an animal, a little aeroplane or car you had to put together or, heaven forbid, a crap little jigsaw. More recently, there are specific ranges which plaster the packaging and tell you you're going to get a certain toy. And this year, there was a range of Transformers toys. The paperwork says “Transformers” but the pictures and the characters make it pretty clear the range is based on Transformers Prime.

Robot Mode:

Megatron has quite a chubby, square look about him. However, you can't see the weird cog on his back and the arms and that are well-articulated.

Marks out of ten for the following:

Durability: 10 Solid, sturdy pieces and easy-to-pop-out limbs.
Fun: 7 No transformation to speak of, but stands up well and is only small. I could easily imagine good little games with a set of these.
Aesthetics: 5 Quite weird and not particularly Megatron-looking.
Articulation: 5 Not a huge amount of articulation but manages to stand up no matter what you do.
Value/Price: 10 Cost me 85p and came in a chocolate egg. Amazing.
Overall: 10 Comes with a chocolate egg, guys. Get involved.
