Lugnut is truly glorious!

I'm glad Kreons are relatively cheap, because there are a LOT of wants on my list. Wish they invested in some more helmets, but at least they're not using those dreadful flack jackets anymore.

What are those ones with the 'armor rack' sprues, similar to the Halo minifigs. Looks like thye've all got chrome helmets and a bunch of extra parts.

And that (I'm assuming ghost form, what with the pale face) Starscream with the translucent pink helmet is something else.

EDIT: And now I can't find the pictures, what's the deal? o_O

At three bucks a pop, I pretty much plan on gobbling all of these guys up...assuming they generously continue to include ID numbers on the packets, and I get to the shelves in time.

But I really agree that the helmets are a bit disappointing. And the choices aren't always the best either (they should pay more attention to your pictures!). For example, why give Powerglide a Megatron helmet instead of a Conehead? That seemed like an easy call. I don't find G1 scourge particularly convincing, and Soundwave would have made a much better choice for Hoist. And the Sharkticon is a little too literal. I could go on.

I'll still probably by them, mind you, but I'll love them just a little less.

Of course, if I thought someone really, really wanted more diversity of helmets...I would direct him or her to the links in my signature...

Motto: "If you don't believe me, just ask me.....I'll tell you all about it."
With the current standard of four kreons to form one of the combiner sets and the fifth team member being in the blindpacks......I'm assuming there making a computron also since it said kreon nosecone will be in the blindpacks in the write up. (crosses fingers)
New pics added as I find time.
