One of the biggest and most powerful Bakugan yet, the Maxus Dragonoid will have your Bakugan opponents quaking in fear. It includes one Bakugan warrior and six traps that, when transformed, can be assembled into a giant dragon robot. These seven pieces are unique and can’t be found anywhere else, making this set essential for any Bakugan player/collector.
This game combines skill (aiming your Bakugan) with strategy (placement of the cards). Players also enjoy the way the warriors pop open on the magnetic cards — although sometimes they do it even when they don’t land on the cards. Players unfamiliar with the TV show, may feel a little lost at first in the world of Bakugan. But with the help of the colorful, animated Bakugan Web site, they will get what the game is about and how to play.
Even without the official strategy game, Bakugan toys are enjoyable and can be played with like regular action figures. Fans of the show will like role-playing as one of the various characters, such as the fiery 12-year-old leader “Dan” or the wise “Marucho.”
