Review: DS Lite Transformers kit from PDP


Short Version: Friends, this is the nerdiest and coolest Nintendo DS Lite case that a Transformers fan could ask for. What kid (12-year-old or 35-year-old) wouldn’t want their DS to look like Bumblebee or Megatron? Do you see the stylus that each set comes with? Pick one up for your kid or yourself. They’re only $20.

Long Version: I’m not entirely sure what to tell you in the long version of this review, but I’ll give it a shot.

The case is made of a rubber material ensuring any bumps on the top case are absorbed by Bumblebee’s armor. The bottom case includes a slide-out game cartridge drawer made of a heavier plastic so you’re covered where it matters most. But the hinge can be vulnerable to scratches or a drop.


My particular review unit was the Bumblebee kit that includes the portly stylus. The DS Lite recognizes it as if it was any other stylus, but it’s a little too big for my tastes. If I could hook it onto the case itself for transport than I might feel differently.


Again, for only $20 (the stylus or case alone retails for $13) the Transformers themed case from PDP is a welcome addition to my Transformers collection. The stylus is big, sure, but it looks cool and I never really just carry my DS Lite anywhere.
