I had quite a unique opportunity when Time To Play invited me to their Time To Play Holiday Showcase two months ago. At that time it was really hard for me to start thinking about Christmas but here I am now ready and already feeling a bit behind in Holiday Shopping. Ben 10 is a special treat for our family because it’s the most memorable time our family had as a family as far as blogging trips go. My kids still talk about the trip D3 took us on to introduce us to their Holiday Christmas Line Up a few years ago, and that included Ben 10. So I had to share the Ben 10 Toy Line up for 2011 along with the newest D3 Video game Ben 10 Galactic Racing.
Bandai’s new line of toys based on BEN 10 ULTIMATE ALIEN, the hit boys action property which, now in its sixth year, continues to grow and find new fans each year and here is this year’s highlights.

Now kids can have all their favorite alien voices at their command with the new Ultimate Chest Badge. With a turn of a dial and a smack to the badge like Ben, they can hear the voice of their favorite characters from the Ben 10 Alien Force or Ben 10 Ultimate Alien series. The Ben 10 Ultimate Alien Chest Badge features 14 alien voices and spikes eject when the unity is pressed indicating Ultimate Alien mode.

The Ben 10 Galactic Racing Game, this time featuring the Nintendo DS
So all of the basic information is the same about D3’s Ben 10 Galactic Racing video game as the previous post I wrote. It’s the same premise, but made smaller and was harder for me to play. The Kids had no problem with it.
- Become a Champion! – Select a character and compete against opponents in a circuit of action-packed, high-speed races in increasingly challenging tracks filled with offensive and defensive pick-ups, where players earn awards along the way.
- Enjoy a BEN 10 Multiplayer Experience Like Never Before – The first BEN 10 racing game allows players to compete against up to three friends to become the champion racer.
- Race as Your Favorite Characters – Players can race as Ben, who can transform into aliens mid-race, or as other characters from the BEN 10 universe, each of which can use unique attacks themed to that character’s abilities. New alien hero Fasttrack makes his video game debut and as a DS exclusive, play as popular alien hero Diamondhead.
- Fun and Challenging Grand Prix Tracks – Players can burn rubber on more than 12 distinct race tracks on three massive worlds. Players can also race in 12 fun karts, some based on vehicles seen in the BEN 10 series.
- Exceptional Level of Authenticity – The game is based on the phenomenally-successful Cartoon Network original animated BEN 10 series and the game’s art style, sound effects and music are 100% authentic to the show.
