When I was a bit younger, I used to love the Mega Bloks Dragons line. I collected most of the Plasma dragons, and its nice to see Mega giving a nod to one of their older lines. In comparison to the old line, these are much bigger, much sturdier, and they swapped out the old singular piece of rubber plastic for play slime.
However, the way they included the slime is the only thing holding this product back to me. I was kind of surprised to actually have to fish out the parts from the play slime, and while it was neat at first, it grew kind of tiring pretty quick. Moving on to the summary of the product with pros and cons
Pros:
Excellent molds and creature designs
Clear stand pieces for display
Some have FX pieces like fire breath
Reusable packaging doubles as a display piece and has studs for attachment of blocks
Really great way to bring back the spirit of a line long since forgotten
Cons:
Play slime gimmick (really only a con to a collector, kids would probably love it)
possibility of messy paint applications
Overall: Its a great product for adults who grew up with mega bloks, kids who are into fantasy or gross things, or anyone who wants a little something to put on your desk.

These breakout beasts are great. There is much detail and are very posable. The material feels great and the slime is a nice touch. I didn't notice the slime leaving any residue/color on surfaces.

On the downside, the price is pretty steep for a blind pack. I ordered 10 items at $100 and I didn't get the one I really wanted.

I bought three of these for Christmas for my 7 year old son. He LOVED THEM!! I was impressed with the outer shell, it is a strong plastic with a rubber seal so it fits together nicely. we kept ours. inside we found a booklet and a plastic "sac" that we opened which contained slime and parts to our beast. my son was ALL about this. I gave him a bowl to put the slimy parts in, and while he played with the slime, I washed the pieces with a toothbrush. just a bit of water breaks it up nicely. I was impressed with the quality of plastic used for the beasts themselves too. they are interchangeable too, so he can create different monsters. slime didn't leave a mess, clings to itself well. we saved ours in a plastic bag. I honestly felt we got our $10 worth per toy. and lets be honest, little boys don't have many "surprise" toys like girls do (LOL DOLLS) so this was perfect and he was totally engaged. he's already asking to earn a new egg. (has his eye on a fire breathing beast apparently)

If you want to be the coolest auntie/uncle in town, buy these bad boys. The kid in your life will love the gnarly beast that is birthed from the ooey gooey insides of the Dino egg. While he’s running amok enjoying his other presents you get to pick through the gunk for all the dragon bits and assemble one badazz monster. Once fully assembled the kid will enjoy picking at the goo, flicking it into your hair and encapsulating other presents within. Only after he’s exhausted the potential of the dragon goo will he appreciate the toy you lovingly labored over, by dismembering it.

This egg combines the best of the two most wanted toys of my 8 year old: slime and dragons! The egg comes with a sealed package of slime and separate dragon parts with instructions to put it together. A little tricky to clean each piece but part of the fun. My boy is so happy! Will update later with durability.

First off, I should note that I have many other figures from mega construx with this gimmick. I love them! I have an entire series 1 set and half a series 2 set of breakout beasts. The slime for those sets was not very runny and actually was really easy to peel off. I even have a procedure I go through to ensure I don't have to wash any of the pieces in water.

But I dont know what they did different, but this slime was a lot more runny. Like snot runny. My technique for removing the slime did not work. But honestly, as long as you play around in a paper plate or bowl, you should be fine. Yes, you do have to wash your hands and heaven forbid it gets in any cracks or crevices in furniture, but overall, if you watch your kid play you should be fine.

The figure overall is simply gorgeous. I got Rubywing, the golden dragon one. The soft rubbery plastic and light sparkling sheen made her really stand out with my other beasts. Speaking of standing, she easily rests on her hooves on the table, something I was very surprised about. I will say that any of the parts you have for breakout beasts will work on these and vice versa. So the armor and body parts can be switched around to make some pretty cool creatures.

The only issue I had was with the stand pieces. Normally, all my other stands were fine from this line but for some reason the hole on my base piece is blocked by more green plastic, as if the stamping machine malfunctioned on this one. So unfortunately I cannot rest her on her included stand piece. This upsets me only because I know that if a kid got this they would be dissappointed. But luckily I do have a bunch of stands from the breakout beasts line so I can still pose her!

Overall, this is a cool toy for both and girls alike and I honestly would love to review a whole set if given the chance. Quality control might need to watch the machines though.

3.5 out of 5

I own all the wave 1 beasts and half the wave 2 beasts. (all purchased at Target or Gamestop). I couldn't find any wave 3 beasts locally, so I chose to buy some off Amazon. This product line is cool, but a few caveats if you choose to buy online:

1.) You are virtually guaranteed to get duplicates if you order online, so if you want to avoid that, I suggest only buying a few that way. To the uninitiated, the last two numbers of the code engraved on the bottom of the egg indicates which beast is inside, so for example, you see two codes ending in "76T" that means those eggs contain the same monster. I ordered my first three beasts here, and I already ended up with a pair of duplicates in that order.

2.) DO NOT OPEN THE BAG YET IF THE INSIDE IS FOGGED UP! The slime will be extra clingy and very difficult to remove! Normally it slides off easily as long as you keep it together. I think this problem arises when the items are left in the sun's heat for too long. I recommend leaving the bags in a cooler environment before opening

This was really cool. My son liked it. The egg doubles as storage space for the slime, an has a rubber band on the inside to seal it shut. Now that was awesome. We got the wolf figure. I actually wanted him to have the dragon, but that was super neat, we will be our chasing more. Hes 9 years old, an enjoyed searching for each pieces an even the small pieces the same color as the slime! Lol an putting it all together. The mouth really opens am closes.

I got this for my 5 year old for a non- candy Valentine's day gift and it was a huge hit. He loved building it and playing with the slime. All the pieces were in ours. My 11 year old daughter asked for one too.

My son loves these. The slime is a good consistency and the dragons are so neat!
