Kreo Micro Changer Wave 1 sighted! (The OTHER wave 1)

Found these at a ToysRus in Singapore a few hours ago. Pretty easy to miss, they look almost the same as the preview wave.

Edit: There IS a code! I need to buy more than 1 to confirm, but on the back, the red flap has a string of embossed numbers. Springer is 22981 42.

12 figures this time (as revealed in SDCC I think). No codes as far as I can tell.

Image
Warpath, Singe(Who?), and Hook on the boxart. Same white background.

Packing... All appear to be A2200, no codes for you. :-(
Image

All 12 of them.
Image

Used the conventional "packing rape" method to get a Springer. Hint: Look for the figure's unique parts. Like Springer's rotor, or Dirge's helmet, or Airachnid's spider-legs. You get my point. Lego minifig collectors should have no problem. Nice and distinctive parts here.
Image


Loving that embossed stand! Halo Mega Bloks have to learn from them! And that the chests have colour printing! :grin: Yes! Hasbro has listened! Love the multi-coloured chests!

They cost $6.90SG ($5.60US) here, same as the preview wave.

Good news Kreon fans, the next wave of Kre-O Micro Changers have been spotted at a Singapore Toys"R"Us. These little guys was spotted by Seibertron.com member gavinfuzzy.

He tells us that there is an embossed code on the back of the red flap. Springer is 22981 42. Hopefully we can get more confirmation to see if this code is unique and identifies Springer, and perhaps a comprehensive guide to identify all the figures. We will let you know as soon as this information is available.

Hopefully these will hit retail near you soon. If you find them in your neck of the woods, let other Seibertronians know by posting your finds in our Toys Sightings Forum.

This wave features the following 12 kreons.

  • Autobot Springer
  • Inferno
  • Quickslinger
  • Rampage
  • Insecticon
  • Singe
  • Decepticon Hook
  • Warpath
  • Dirge
  • Blast Off
  • Decepticon Bludgeon
  • Airachnid

Singe I take is supposed to be Scorch. Kre-O loves their crazy homages.

Can't wait to get these guys. Hopefully Target carries them; they did NOT carry the "preview" wave...

Airachnid looks great, Bludgeon burns my eyes in a good way, and definitely looking forward to snagging me a little Warpath! They did a great job with Springer there, and I'm hoping the same for Inferno and Slingshot; I need a better look at the two of 'em.

Erhmahgerd, I need them all! Most of them, anyway. Hopefully there's a code guide soon. Much better than the truly blind-packed Lego minifigures.

Warpath's helmet makes him look more like Ironhide. Oh well.

On the contrary, I think true bind packs are better, as it takes skill to get thoes you want. :lol: Or you could buy the whole case.

Besides, I thought lego was expensive at $4.... till Kreo came along.

If I'm only missing one figure, I don't want to still have a 1 in 12 chance of finding it. I'd rather be able to just get the one I want. If you want to go true blind, just ignore the numbering. :P

Nice use of rape in the opening post. Really approprite stuff - made me laugh.

Up next: 'kristalnacht', and how to use it in the context of children's toys.

Looks like these one has some improvement than the last wave. A base stand, more Kreons. Quite good.

I really hope the Kreons will be improved more in the next wave. I think next wave is the time to actually have distinguishable helmets for the characters. No more of these reuse other character helmets on the Kreons. Some worked well, like Sideswipes on Scorponok's, but others like Warpath and Galvatron...they really need a more defined head. We can't keep trying to squint our eyes trying to please ourselves.

Also more paint apps on the Kreons would be nice in the future.

Just hope Kre-O take notes on these suggestion. Yeah, you can't get everything right on first try. Good start anyway. Hope they'll do better.

I'm looking to get Airachnid anyway.

So this list is confirmed by more than one source? Can't wait to start hunting for these. :D

Yup. Blame trademarks for this one. "Slingshot" can't be claimed for whatever reason, so "Airazor" was used instead for Universe/RotF Superion set and now he's Quickslinger. That name suits him better I think.
