What to Be Aware of
More Transformers: Dark of the Moon toys will hit store shelves on May 16, 2011.
The 3-D glasses are for the online content only; they are not for use in cinemas. Parental supervision is recommended when kids go online.
It's listed as a Level 1 on the transforming scale, but it took us a while, though that's part of the play. As with many of the Transformers toys, the picture instructions only give an indication of how to do this. It takes a lot of trial and error, but, of course, that's part of the play, too.
