WHAT THE KIDS SAY
I like how easy to convert from the ball to the wagon, it only comes with 1 car but having more would really be better. By itself it's OK but it would be more fun to have it with other types of Ballistiks attack force. The car doesn't come out with enough force to make it come out of it's ball so pretty much all it does it launch the car and can be turned into a ball. It doesn't really do anything else. The ball when it turns into the wagon doesn't roll really well, the handle that you can hold on to when it's a ball, drags on the floor slowing it down, and the middle part of the wagon is to heavy so it too drags on the floor. I just looked at the skull design and after a few minutes of play it is already scratched.
This wasn't a lot of fun. I liked that you could hide small ball-cars inside the big one and that the big ball opened up into another, big, car, but the pieces kept coming off. And, we didn't have enough cars to play. I need more of those cars. When I'd touch the catapult button, it wasn't the spot where my car was that went flying, so that was no fun. If my car was in there, then it was pretty cool.
I liked the look of the wagon at first but then it wasn't much fun to play with so I haven't really touched it. it is still better than the Full force rapid fire launcher , which is basically lame.
I'ts preaty cool but it dosn't do what it sais it does

It's cool because it turns into a car. You're supposed to buy more guys [vehicles], but it should start with at least four. We used a diffrent toy but still only had two.
WHAT ADULTS THINK
If you use this toy as a carrier for the small cars, then it's a really entertaining way to take them along for a play date. As a toy on its own, it doesn't seem to do as much as it appears it should from the way it is described and illustrated.
Originally I thought the game was a bit strange that it didn't offer a lot of excitement for a child but I was wrong. My son picks up this toy quite a bit and he is on a mission to see how the toy opens up and the distant the car travels after he opens it up. He is forever investigating and experimenting. He simply has fun watching the toy blast out to the wagon and seeing what happens.
I wouldn't recommend the Battle Wagon unless you already have a full assortment of Ballistics vehicles. This playset only comes with 1 vehicle. Luckily, we had another Ballistic vehicle at home, otherwise we would not have been able to play any of the games found when the large ball transforms into a wagon. Even with the 2 cars, we found that we needed more. You should have at least 4 Ballistics vehicles, possibly even more, to get the full play value out of this playset.
The wagon holds quite a few ballistics and closes up well so none fall out. The sides pop off fairly easily, but they do reattach. The wagon pops open and most of the cars have exploded open, so it works well.
The boys ( 9 & 11) had fun for the first part of an hour playing iwht the Battle wagon, checking out how it works etc, after that it basically bacame a container to put the Ballisticks in, there wasn't much play involved. The cars when they come out of the wagon don't always have enough force to open the balls into a car.
Roll into battle with a wagon that’s both a target and a launcher! This transforming vehicle folds up into an oversized Ballistiks ball but opens to reveal the ultimate offensive weapon. The set includes one Ballistiks vehicle but can carry up to five vehicles (additional ones sold separately) for maximum firepower. Strike the center launcher or side target to eject onboard vehicles — enemies won’t know what hit ’em! If an opponent hits the wagon’s front or rear bumpers during battle, they detach from the body. But don’t worry! You can easily put the three pieces back together and roll the vehicle into a ball. With so many ways to play, how will you roll?
Features a cool, futuristic design with multiple launch points
