Woah, is that an actual BLUEstreak next to Skywarp, or did someone slap the wrong color pants on Smokescreen?

Di-a...CLOnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnne.

In addition to the BotCon Souvenir figures already seen, lucky BotCon 2011 attendees are eligible to receive an exclusive Kre-O Optimus Prime figure in commemorative packaging.

According to Seibertron, the figure is given away at the Kre-O booth for registering to win a Kre-O Bumblebee set and contains an exclusive "Matrix" deco.

If they release all the mini G1 figures as a multi-pack, I'd be all over it like a rash.


My thoughts exactly. Shame that such a multi-pack is so unlikely.

Holy Jesus, Can those things get anymore adorable. :x Also is it just me or does it apear that we're getting more classic characters in the Kre-O than the actual classics line?

FYI ... the little figures are called "Kreons".

The Kreons are great i love them. But the giant kre-o counterparts suck. Oh well what are you going to do. I agree with you guys i would love just a pack of the kreons.

For some reason I want that Kre-O Prime item.

So far, these have proven to be better than the BTR stuff. I'm still waiting until I see them in person to make a judgment.

To anyone actually at BotCon, do the pieces and figures feel as solid as Lego, or more like one of the knock offs?

Really only interested in the 'Kreons'

Huh I'm more interested in the "Kre-Os" rather than the "Kreons" though I gotta say...These kreons does look nice and I bet my sister going to like it more than I do lol.

Yaay. In truth I was worried he'd look a little naff like Starscream does, but this puts all my worries to rest. I might have to order two of those Prime sets so I can have one for play and one for display.

Woo, $120 worth of legos I'll never use. ~_~;

Sell all of the kreons in one set and I'll buy it straight away.

Love these lil guys. Just missing a wheeljack and once again, the Cons are short handed.

These Kreons would work well with a Unicron.

Sad to say... that particular batch of G1 characters is about when I -STOP- caring about TF's. :P

Give us the entire grouping of 1984 - 1985 TF's as Kreons, and then I'LL care. :D

I think I might end up buying all of these sets as gifts for my nephew and niece, but snagging the Kreon for myself.

the minifigures are super neat, but of course, the big lego like toy is what they're pushing and I'm not much for that.

I find it funny that most people in this thread want the Kreons more than the figures that are actually being sold.

Seems to me like Hasbro needs to cash in on Minimates.

I think the disaster that was BTR is also partly to blame for the lack of love towards the larger figures. Seems like everyone is afraid.

I honestly looked over the bigger KRE-O's and There doesn't seem much like playability for kids there. Look at Starscream for example. In Jet mode, yes, kids could have fun, but in robot mode, it looks like they would fall apart and you would spend more time putting it back together often. In robot mode more of a display I'd say.

They do seem to be pushing these cause many people would want the KRE-ONS and you have to buy the bigger guy to get them. Well played I'd say.
