It seems like it would be a pain to design the female-plug on the inside of the helmet...not to mention making sure one left enough room for the face to peer out.

Please hire Wulongti immediately, as they have very obvious talent, and then please market these designs as soon
as possible. Every Transformer/mech/giant robo fan that also
collects lego'esque building blocks will want as many of these
as possible, Lego, don't hire him, you make your kits to expensive these day.
P.S. In all honesty dude, those are amazing. I would love to own a bajillion of each, in many many colors. I already have custom transformers ideas spawning using those and the mega bloks need for speed and halo lines. Rest assured, come next pay day, I will be ordering atleast one set, if not 5.
Tresob wrote:On a side note, while you are entertaining requests, there is a particular kind of brick I've always wanted to see but have never found.
It would really be handy to have a small, right-angled, one-stud piece with the stud on the hypotenuse and a female bottom face. This brick could then be attached to a plate and the kreon's foot attached to the angled brick so as to make the kreon look like he was running or jumping.
In other words, imagine if the little vent piece that they use for Skorponok's stinger had a stud instead of the vent.
Without such a piece, my kreon's always have to have one leg perpendicular to the ground.
Make that piece in clear plastic, and you would be a mini-fig hero.

Now you just have to redesign a waist, legs, arms, and hands, and you've pretty much made yourself an entirely new building toy mini-fig.
Actually, slightly shorter limbs might work really well with your slightly shorter torso to make mini-bots.

I was a little skeptical, but I took a chance and I'm glad I did. I just received two of these kits last night, a black and a white, and I couldn't be happier with them.
I'll post pictures of my best creation so far later on when I get the chance, but... wow. Keep up the good work!

A thought popped in my head. Previously, you had asked whether you should remove the pegs to make it look more streamlined...I recommended against it, because I liked that it stayed true to the building toy look.
But have you thought about making your own panels to plug into those pegs? You could make panels that evoked Omega Supreme...or a panel that evoked a stunticon car or arielbot jet...
