Are we not toys! We are Chargertron! As a big Devo fan I cannot help, but appreciate the “Chargertron” theme music. It could have been a track on “Oh, No! It’s Devo” Great stuff.

The toy itself is just OK. Kind of a hybrid launcher/transformer. Now when it comes to the launcher toys, the thing that matters is durability. Because as soon as you get it, you are going to launch it into things. If your buddy also has one you are going to be playing crash up derby until one of your toys breaks. With the Chargertron – the popup action was not your friend. After only a couple of dozen wall smashes it was pretty much done for. It was certainly no match for my hand cranked Evel Knievel Stunt motorcycle. Still its a pretty awesome commercial
