Also posted on the BotCon facebook page, we get a look at the BotCon 2013 exclusive Kre-O Kreon Machine Wars set. Mirroring the character choices in the official Machine Wars Box set, we get Megaplex, Hoist, Obsidian, Skywarp and Strika in Kreon form. Check out the image below.

Those things are just adorable! Clever that they even included Megatron's fusion cannon for Megaplex, further reinforcing both characters' connections to one another.

Kreon, my one weakness!


... I'm actually kinda apathetic towards these five. Strika's alright, but Obsidian's face is all wrong, and I don't really care all that much about the other three. Depending on the aftermarket price, I may get the two Generals, and figure something out for Obsidian's face (maybe Bombshell's?).

I think this is an awesome idea and hope we get more convention exclusive Kreons in this vein.

Think I'll wait for the hype to die down a bit then buy that adorable Megaplex.

Funny thing, like a week ago. I suddenly though: Hmm, it would be cool if they made a kreo boxed set of the regular sized souvenir set...

And they did. Albeit a bagged one. :shock:
Still looks really cool, probaby out of my pricerange.

Also, the clips holding the rotors to Obsidian are new, I belive. And Strika's helmet is a new piece too.

Really cool concept set; if this is a decent price on the TFCC site after the Con, I might snatch it up.

Obsidian's rotor clips are actually HANDS! While Strika's helmet is from the divers from Battleship and GI Joe.

Take a little bit of Starscream, a dab of Knock Out, and a whole glob of Megatron, and you get MW Megaplex. :lol:
