Kreon Micro-Changers In-package pics plus how to identify blind packaged Kreons

Motto: "Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly; the ill deeds along with the good, and let me be judged accordingly. The rest ... is silence."
Weapon: Twin Shock-Concussion Missiles
The all-new-just-announced Kreon Micro-Changers which Hasbro unveiled last week at SDCC, have already begun showing up at a couple of comic book stores. Thanks to Fishformers for figuring out how to match the stamped numbers on the packaging of this blind packaged toys to the product numbers of the toys themselves.

With a case in hand, Seibertron.com can confirm that the numbers do indeed match up for all 6 figures which we provided proof with via the pictures below.

Crankstart - A1010 (214510)
Galvatron - A1008 (214518)
Scorponok - A1011 (214511)
Spinister - A1007 (214517)
Sunstorm - A1009 (214519)
Waspinator - A1012 (214512)

Happy hunting!

The instructions also show how to convert the Kreon Micro-Changer from robot to alternate modes. The figures do not transform. Instead, you will need to "rebuild" the figure much like you do with the larger Kre-O Transformers sets.

Is there a reasonable spread across the case or does it appear completely random?

It's great that they can be ID for those looking not to splash out on a box/multiple packs. But like Lego they will be alerted, and come up with another coding/hidden bumps. Stuff like this should be kept like a dirty secret (people know about it but do not say it out aloud). That's if buyers do wish to be able to ID them easily.

"Product Does Not Convert"

....yes it does. That's the whole point of these Kreons... Traditional conversion? No. Conversion, period? Yes.

Some of them might be identifiable by feeling the pieces inside. For example, Sunstorm's wings would be easy to feel through the package.

I don't think Hasbro really cares if people can ID them. The IDs on their other franchises blind bags have been deciphered ages ago, and yet they haven't changed them. Kids won't know the codes, and collectors will probably buy multiple anyway, so they aren't really loosing out by us knowing the codes.

Pft. Who needs codes when you have fingers? :lol:
Just feel the bags for the specific pieces. If you collect the lego/mega blox ones you would know. Furthermore, Lego has 16, Mega blocks has 10-ish different figures in a case, while this has only 6.

Pieces to look out for : Sunstorm's wings, Crankstart's pipes, Spinester's rotors...

As for the rest, do the "elimination" method where if it has a piece that does not belong, it's not it, and try to guess the rest of the parts. This could be harder than lego due to the amount of pieces, when lego only has hat+head+body+leg+weapon ... But hey, 6 figures opposed to 16. :lol:

Codes are nice too... I'm sure hasbro deliberately put em on there, seeing how each has a specific instruction manual.

Yep, it all works. The only issue I could foresee with the "feeling" method though is that some parts might feel kinda similar. But yeah, codes, fingers, either one.

Now we just need to get these guys showing up in stores and we'll be all set.

Megabloks has yet to come up with a new system of identification. They use number codes as well that are easily cracked. It's more sophisticated than this, but still useable for the determined.

We'll have to see how hasbro approaches this.

I'd be really surprised if Hasbro cares that people have figured out the numbers
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Really? I've just been fondling them looking for the weapons. Is there a site that tells you how to decipher the code?

Also, can't wait for these to show up in other stores, my local comic stores suck.

whats the point of doing blind packs if you can ID them, i guess its a good thing so you dont have to waste money looking for 1 figure but still it defeats the point of doing blind packs.

If I had to guess, I'd say it has something to do with there being a certain number of each item in each case (or perhaps a certain range, like 1-2 of item A, 1-3 of item B, etc.). Otherwise, they could end up shipping entire cases of only item A. That could result in a drop in sales of the product if people don't think they can get anything other than item A, which is the point of blindpacks.
