Summerhayes' Review: Kinder Surprise Starscream
Backstabbing one with a whiny voice
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.
Weird and pointy.
Marks out of ten for the following:
9 Unbreakable and made to pop apart and back together again easily.
8 Small enough to play nice big games with; it wouldn't be unreasonable for a kid to get a nice set of these and have adventures on the bedroom floor.
7 Pointy and skinny like a Prime Starscream should be but the weird cog on the back is overly visible
5 The legs on this one are one solid lump.
10 Came in a chocolate egg and only cost me 85 pence. Less than that, actually, they were two for a pound.
9 Kinder eggs, like most kinder chocolates, is a layer of milk chocolate over a layer of white chocolate. Both chocolates are quite sweet, but its nice.
