A very quick guide to buying Ben 10 toys

A very quick guide to buying Ben 10 toys

Looking to buy toys for a Ben 10 fan? Not sure where to begin? Do you know your Omnitrix from your Omniverse?

Stop. Don’t buy a thing until you’ve read my very brief guide to Ben 10 toys, to help you avoid the unforgiveable error of buying the wrong toy.

The Lingo

There have been four TV series featuring Ben 10, they are:

  • Ben 10
  • Ben 10: Alien Force
  • Ben 10: Ultimate Alien
  • Ben 10: Omniverse (current series)

All toys should give an indicator of which TV series they relate to, so all the newest toys include ‘Omniverse’ in the title.

The Omnitrix is a watch like device that Ben uses to select which alien he will transform into. This is the toy that holds the most potential for getting it wrong. Each TV series featured a different Omnitrix toy, so if your boy asks for one, you need to double check which one he means – he could be referring to the newest model as advertised on TV, or maybe he likes an older version he has seen at a friends house. Use YouTube to show him the adverts for the different models, or even show him the pictures from toy websites so you know which version he wants.

Cheap Ben 10 toys

If your lad is a relative Ben 10 novice you can pick up some bargains by buying toys from the previous series. Discounted action figures make a great stocking filler. But be warned, a die-hard Ben 10 fan may not be impressed by last year’s toys.

These are my favourites from the new Ben 10 Omniverse range:

Transforms from Max’s plumbing truck, to sky-bound flying thing.

I was sent this little fella from Bandai. My boys would rather have half a dozen action figures than a playset. They then use the entire house as their make-believe world. Figures are available in two sizes, 10cm, and 18cm.
