Do you love Combiners? Do you love Kreons? Well do we have news for you, because as MTV Geek has just reported, Hasbro has combined the two things, meaning we now have Kreon Combiners!
As they state there will be 4 sets at launch and each one of these sets included 4 figures than can be assembled in bot-mode, alt-mode, and combined Gestalt mode, and will sell for USD 10.99, not just that but Kreons are now to be sold separately from the Kre-O sets and will retail at USD 2.99 in Spring 2013.
So far only 2 sets have been revealed, Combaticons and Predacons!

Oh Hasbro, why do you always get so close to the goal then fumble?

Not bad for a bunch of Kreons. And only $11!

I'd have preferred Cyberverse, though. And 5 team members.

Hey, Tantrum and Headstrong, just sit there and let me step on your head. :lol:

Looks not bad and the price seems good, too.

That Bruticus looks better than the Fall of Cybertron version.

What th- oh man these things are hilarious! I think I'll give Bruticus a pass, but nights have to snag a Predaking. XD I hope they do Computron and Superion. :D

Okay, now, I don't collect Kre-O, but THESE sets I just might consider getting! These are cool! :APPLAUSE:

This is pretty good news. I'm glad they decided to do the scaled-down versions, instead of the Devastator-size, only because I'd be on the fence about purchasing more expensive sets that removed the 5th member from these teams.

Glad there are more Kreons as well. I will definitely pick these sets up.

And now I believe we know about that "Combiners" copyright from last week. Can always hope that Classics/Generations will get some of this love as well.

Now that's awesome! I might just have to start collecting Kreons.

yeah hasbro really has no idea how to do combiners anymore, Didnt think they could do worse than energon or PCC combining but obviously i was wrong.
Re: Combiners are back, in Kreon form! (1398611)
Posted by JelZe GoldRabbit on July 9th, 2012 @ 12:40pm CDT
Just speechless, that's what I am. So what we have is 4 members per team, and the combiner mode is more kibble than Kreon. Heck, one arm is all kibble. And still, no hands.

Why "better than PCC and FoC"? >:oP

These are made out of lego men there just tiny bits of fun i don't think there's much point in comparing them to other combiners or what kibble they carry :lol:

Now this I can get behind!
More of this, less of that other crap, and you will succeed! These look fun, intuitive, and cute all at once! Not to mention how awesome each respectable mode looks, once you see how small these guys are. good job hasbro. I thought it would be years before I said that again.

These are basically just KO Lego men with funny hats having an orgy.

Christ, that's the first lol I've had all day (bad day at work)

Why they bother with this crap is still beyond me - and yes, the fact that they are KO Legos just astounds me....

Bruticus made my day, with the LEGO "O" face.
Will buy, especially for 11$, those are fantastic.
Maybe not for TF fans, but for TF fans, that also like LEGO, this is :lol:

Some fans, like myself, just like different Transformers stuff. Diff'rent strokes, and all that.

Pft, Predaking has fabric on him?
Give us the real Predaking! :HEADHURTS:
I know I don't speak for everyone but seriously, F*** kreon. Tired of all these retarded deviations from the real Transformers.

For that price, I'll buy both of them. They're not going to be centerpieces of my collection, but they look like they'll be fun to play with.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned that the single packed Kreons will probably include the fifth member to each team. I think that's a pretty simple genius kind f marketing strategy. The combined robot can be built out of only four members and their Lego bits for the left arm. The fifth member is unnecessary, but of course, gotta shell out an extra $3 for the whole team.
I won't fault 'em for it, but I'm not a completionist, haha. I feel like I'll be buying the fifth member for the Aerialbots for sure if they do nice wings for them. The Technobots as well, depending on who gets cut.

Posted by Tigertrack on July 9th, 2012 @ 3:34pm CDT
I do love these, except there's only 4 not five of them... :sad:

I'll certainly grab them, a couple of each I would say.

And maybe, just maybe, this indicates Predaking is on the way elsewhere...

How far the mighty have fallen. I suppose that if these don't sell like hotcakes topped with cocaine Hasbro will decide that "buyers aren't interested in combiners".

Posted by Sodan-1 on July 9th, 2012 @ 5:39pm CDT
I won't pretend that these things aren't in anyway remotely cool, but Kreo is completely off my radar.

if these are what that 'Combiners' solicitation referred to; oh dear. :BANG_HEAD: Hercules isn't going anywhere. (Not that I ever thought he would be.)

glad they are finally doing loose Kreons; hopefully the BBees will be kept to a minimum

i completely agree with you.. i wish they'd do something super cool like these third parties do.

it's just a shame that 30 years go by.. and we still can't have a really good, well put together combiner.

Eh, Hasbro can never achieve what (some) fans want, anyways. We're getting a full Scramble City 5-man Combaticon Combiner team --no extra kibble or repaints-- and many are still not satisfied.



You'd kinda think Vortex would be the one Combati-Kreon left out, since he's got his own set.

I'm pretty excited for these, totally sold. Will work well in my minifigure collection.

I just hope that our chances aren't blown for more combiners because of this Kre-O stuff and the side that don't like FoC Bruticus being more vocal about it.

Though it's hard to be vocal when you're accused of just wanting to argue about it when you are vocal about it...
