The Kreons were the best part of Kreo IMO. So from a sales viewpoint I can see what they are going for here. But I've learnt my lesson from last year. No Kreo or Kreons for me thanks.

Gotta ask, what kind of issue did you have?

Its a personal issue of sorts and nothing to do with the designs, characters or Kreo brand. I purchased the entire run of Transformer Kreo last year excluding the smaller Prime. I had a ball building Jazz and then Mirage. Then Optimus. But after that they all became incredidbly repetitive. So much in fact that Starscream is still MISB in the garage. I just blew a lot of coin on a lot of playsets that I didnt enjoy. So I will be passing on these. But like I said the Kreons themselves were actually quite good, so I hope people enjoy these smaller sets.

I think they look pretty cool. I'm a big fan of Kreons, not so much a fan of the actual building sets though. The only series 1 sets that have not ended up in a box in the closet are Prime and Movie Bumblebee. I think these combiners are pretty cool though. The alt forms are silly at best, but the bot modes look good, and the combiner modes could use some work. They aren't bad for the price.

My fiancee loves lego figures.She doesn't collect transformers, but even she asked why they didnt sell these little guys separately. I have a feeling I will be picking up a few of these sets for her.

They look fairly decent for the price; I’m not really a Kre-O fan but I’m sure I’ll pick these up if they ever show up in UK stores.

I’m slightly baffled by the amount of bile being directed at them actually. Even if they aren’t your thing, it’s not as if these getting a release mean something in the pipeline has had to have been sacrificed.

More Transformer stuff is more Transformer stuff.

It's a Combiner thing mostly and Hasbro's inability to make one "proper".

Ah, gotcha. Perfectly understandable. The way you wrote the original post, I thought you meant you'd had some serious qc issues or something.

If it was LEGO the whole thing would be better, and the builds would actually TRANSFORM, instead of being rebuilds to the alt mode.

And there would be much rejoicing.

We have some additional information regarding the recently revealed Kre-O Transformers single pack Kreons courtesy of Entertainment Earth. Wave one with feature 12 randomly blind-packed characters including:

  • Waspinator
  • Sunstorm
  • Spinster
  • Galvatron
  • Crankstart
  • Scorponok

The other six character remain a mystery.

Kre-o Transformers Minifigures Series 1 Case:
Battle for the future of Earth and Cybertron with the Kre-o Transformers Minifigures! There are 12 different blind-bagged minifigures in this first series… which ones will you get? Characters in this assortment include weapons and spare parts to change into a vehicle mode, and may include Waspinator, Sunstorm, Spinster, Galvatron, Crankstart, Scorponok, and others. It's a fun surprise in every box with the Kreon Micro Changers!
NOTE: Figure selection is random. Figures are in blind packaging. We cannot accept requests for specific characters, nor can we accept returns on opened figures. You may receive duplicate figures.

This case includes 32 individually packaged Transformers Kreon Micro Changers figures.

Yeehaw, HASBRO got on the bandwagon with the blind packs Ryan mentioned awhile ago as an idea.

Be cool when we get pictures.

I suggested this to Jerry Jivoin at Toy Fair! I doubt my suggestion had anything to do with this, but I'm totally taking from for it.

I'm not a huge fan of blind packs, mostly because I don't want to end up with multiples of the same figure, but oh well. Kreons look fun!

Learn to feel the pieces. Sure, you might get odd looks as you stand at the boxes near the check out counters feeling the packs, but I do that all the time for legos. :lol:

No matter which one it is, i'm curious as to how they'll pull off him having a tail behind him in robot mode, as G1, BW, Energon, and Movie Scorps all do (TransTech Scorponok hasn't been visually seen yet, and Animated "Scorponok" is... well, he's a whole different topic).
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
