Do you know what I think of when someone talks about Dungeons and Dragons? Transformers! OK, this line we’re looking at today isn’t officially connected to the Takara Tomy toys in any way, but it’s hard not to make the comparison. These are literally twenty-sided dice that transform into various D&D creatures! So how and why did this idea even come to pass?!
OK, I know why. The 2023 Honor Among Thieves movie needs merchandise; these toys are affordable filler figures. At $13.99 a pop, you can bring home transforming versions of the White Owlbear, a Beholder, a Black Dragon, and a Red Dragon. These figures are due to ship out in March. Oh, and Hasbro is again taking away your ability to display the actual product on yourself without opening the package. Yup, more windowless boxes.
Out of the lot, the Beholder is the only one that looks like it belongs in the world of D&D. If it were not for the branding, I’d have mistaken all the others for generic gimmick toys you’d find on the endcap at a Target. I get why they transform into d20s in a general sense, but as a play feature, it feels awkward. What is funny is that Hasbro specifically tells you not to use the toys as d20s in your game:
PLAY OR DISPLAY IN EITHER FORM: Just don’t use this d20 for your tabletop game!
With Dicelings, now you can collect a whole new type D&D action figure: one that you can change from a giant d20 to a monster and back again!
What do you think of the new Dungeons and Dragons toys? Will you be buying up the entire collection of Dicelings? Let us know below.[Source: Hasbro Pulse] [Source: Hasbro Pulse] [Source: Hasbro Pulse] [Source: Hasbro Pulse]
