Thanks to the HK-TF forums we have in-hand images of the Kre-O Transformers Micro Changers Combiners Devastator and Superion. Each set is comprised of four transformable and combinable Kreon mini-figures, the fifth member of each team below comes from the individual blind packs. Check out the images mirrored below. In addition to these two there are also Predaking and Bruticus sets on the way.

Neat! Looking forward to these.

Re-using one of the individual bot's head wholesale for the Combiner's head is disappointing, makes it look like a super-mode for them rather than a distinct identity. Swapping helmets or faces should fix it good enough, though.

Hard to tell what exactly is going on, but it looks like the Combiner's arms are attached to where a basic Kreon's arm would be, i.e. you pop off a set of arms every time you rebuild it. Don't think I like that.



Also, each set is comprised of 4 Kreons, not 5. The 5th man on both teams are from the blindpacks.

So very much looking forward to these! Devastator looks fantastic...I think Superion might need a custom head somehow though.

Nice catch, thanks.

So the 5th figure doesn't combine with them at all?

I'm sure it can. :) I suspect they may include instructions on how to add the fifth member or something.

OK, thanks! I may just get them after all! My first ones.

And there you have it. TFC, MakeToys eat your hearts out :P!

Seriously though, these guys are kinda cool and would make great desk fodder for tinkering with.

Being all interconnecting parts, I'm sure you can at least stick the 5th bot's parts on somewhere. Probably wouldn't be very elegant, though.

Hopefully somebody comes up with a build that incorporates the 5.

for those interested I'm working on replacement hands and unique helmets. :)

Also should be able to deal w/ the double torso stack and the extra set of arms sticking out of the middle.

True, but still their best effort.

Nice! Yeah even if there aren't official instructions to incorporate the 5th member, I'm sure it would be easy to do.

Do the little bases come with the sets as well? If so that's great because I can use the extra ones to display the preview Kreons when these are in combiner mode.

I wish I had a personal work desk to display these on. Sucks having to share a workstation. #-o

They look "meh", but it's really stupid that if you want to complete their combined form, you have to hunt down the right blindpack. Seriously, what the hell? They should all come in one box, not four in a box and one found in a little packet. :BANG_HEAD:

Well, I thought the Energon 5-man teams were pretty good. If it wasn't for how their arms are formed, then yeah, they'd be better.

I'm pretty sure you can still combine them without the 5th member. Much of the combined mode seems to be made up of additional pieces. Which is a bit annoying if you want to display them as separate bots, but being a building toy I'm sure there's something you can do with the pieces.

I also forgot to say, I'm always impressed with the ingenuity of their little vehicle modes. Gotta love creativity with building toys.

I'm not sure but I think they've posted galleries of Bruticus and Predaking on the HK-TF forum, but I'm not a member so I can't see the posts.

All of the combiners require 4 kreons to form, not 5. The fifth member is the odd-man out and included in the blind packs to appease the fans that would likely scream in protest that there are only 4 of the team members.

So in short, you don't have to collect the 5th member to complete their combined form. Just if you want the full team in non combined form.

Except in the case of Long Haul of course. Is there a Kreon of him at all?

Is that so? Well, that reduces the dislike to "meh" level.

No, I don't think there is one of Long Haul.

Prodigiously cool. The level of creativity involved in the Microchange Series seems to improve with every wave, these combiners are sheer excellence. Looking forward.
