Get the scoop on the new NEO Shifter transforming robot toys and the battle between the Paladins and the Templars with our toy review!

The latest toys from MEGA Bloks, the NEO Shifters are transforming alien robots from Hydraxx-Tor and Skandar. The good guy Paladins and HTS-infected bad guy Templars are on their way to Earth to battle for water, which is the source of their power. The NEO Shifters are two-part robots - a small NEO and a big Shifter that the NEO controls like a mech. Both can transform into rolling balls but the big Shifters also have light-up faces, launching weapons and a button that makes the NEO robots pop out of their chest. Unfortunately, the kits are a bit hard to build and the rubber-band that makes the wing-discs pop out is flimsy. But, once they're built, NEO Shifters are awesome toys that pose really well and have terrific gripping hands. Plus, they're identical except for different colors so you can mix and match parts to make all kinds of freaky combos.

There are four NEO Shifters right now, two Paladins and two Templars and their battle has just begun. You can follow their story with online webisodes, and get involved in the battle, at their official website. There are also thousands of NEO Shifter events that will be held across the US with secret info, challenges and exclusive NEO Shifters being given away!

    Yeah the gameplay can get kinds stale. For the first two nights just keep the door closed all night and the power will go out 2 seconds before 6 am. I don't really have a strategy for the 3-7 nights.

    The gameplay does tend to get a little stale after a while. The camera itself is virtually useless unless you just want to see the layout of the restaurant. The only time it's helpful is when you watch foxy. If you don't check him regularly, he'll come at you. If you manage to close your door in time he'll bang on it, draining more and more power each time. Other than that, the camera is basically useless...

    It's not scary. And I don't understand it.
