Ben 10 Coming To Your Home


Get ready to defeat villains alongside the coolest alien-powered kid hero when Ben 10: Omni-Tricked is now out on DVD. Fans can revisit the adventures from Cartoon Network’s hit animated series with 16 action-packed episodes and a 44-minute special. Following Ben and his family as they go on a cross-country road trip, fans will embark on a fun, extraterrestrial animated journey.

Ben 10 follows the story of ten-year-old Ben Tennyson, who, on a seemingly endless summer vacation with his Grandpa Max and Cousin Gwen, discovers an alien watch, the Omnitrix. This amazing device gives Ben the ability to transform into any one of ten spectacular and powerful aliens. Throughout the series, Ben, Gwen and Max travel the country in their motor home, affectionately known as the Rust Bucket, seeing the sights, stumbling into adventures, and beating down would-be villains while generally having a blast.

To go along with the DVD release there is a cool playset that is from Ben 10. The creation chamber allows fans to create their own custom three-inch alien figures by mixing and matching different parts from their favorite characters. With the twist of a knob, the chamber creates a different custom Ben 10 alien creature every time and also serves as a storage unit. The set includes: four figures with interchangeable alien parts and a special key to unlock figures once they’ve been put together. The Creation Chamber happens to be listed as an Amazon Choice product. If you watched the Geek Show on our Facebook page this week you saw that you had a chance to win this set. Congrats to John S. for winning this playset. He said his kids will be so psyched to play with it.
