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.

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.

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.

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.

Posted by kirbenvost on December 18th, 2012 @ 10:46am CST
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.

I don't know. I like the concept, and the fact that it's a combiner pack of the kreons, however it's kinda inconvenient the fifth member is blindpacked. Ah well, I think still looks great any way :D

Kreons seriously have to invest in more faceplates. Or paint them or something.

The choice for Onslaught's helmet is rather... unrelated. >:oP

We now have in-hand images of the Kre-O Transformers Micro Changers Combiners Bruticus set. The set comes with Onslaught, Swindle, Brawl, and Vortex. If you want to have a full five man team you'll have to track down Blastoff in the blind packs. We got a look at Superion and Devastator yesterday, which just leaves us waiting for images of the Predaking set. Enjoy the images courtesy of HK-TF mirrored below.

Devastator and Superion looks convincing, but I can't say the same for Bruticus.

I think it's the head of the Combaticons and Bruticus. I think only Vortex looks okay. The rest, you gotta keep telling yourself they're combaticons. Guess they really need to come up with unique head molds.

I like it. I think the combined mode has a good, bulky balance to it. Superion looks awful to me mainly because all Kre-O planes seem to look bad.

That looks awesome, especially the Onslaught. My only nit-pick is that Brawl is smiling. If anything he should have a snarl on his face, even though he has a face-mask in G1.

The beauty with Kreons is you can swap parts around. Skorponok has an orange visor and a snarl, so he'd be perfect for Brawl. Same can't be said for Swindle, however, as nobody has purple eyes. Well, Waspinator and Airachnid do, but they're obviously not appropriate for Swindle.

I have a feeling the photographer (or Hasbro) got the heads mixed up. Brawl's head looks more like it should belong to Swindle, aside from the purple eyes. I'll just give 'em the switcheroo.

Aside from that... F YEAH KREONS!!!

I am seriously in love with these new line of Kreo figures.

I can't throw my money at the screen fast enough. Now if only I could find a store that carries the new wave of kreons I'll be set.

It's kind of messed up that these are probably the best-looking (non-third party enhanced) combiners that Hasbro has EVER released. If I was into the Kre-O stuff I'd totally be buying these, they look fun.

We now have some in-hand images of the Kre-O Transformers Micro Changers Combiners Predaking set. Like the Superion, Devastator, and Bruticus sets, you only get four Predacon Kreons, Razorclaw, Torox, Headlock, and Divebomb with the fifth team member, Rampage, in the blind pack assortment. The fifth man isn't necessary for the combined form, but will allow collectors to round out their team. Images mirrored from Fatguy's Blog below:

yeah I thought that too, I guess cause the helmets are so tall compared to the size of their heads. and Dive Bomb has a Megatron helmet 8-|

I've said it since we first saw these that Predaking is the best set. And that's saying a lot, since Devastator looks amazing and Bruticus came out pretty well too! My issue with Superion lies mostly with the lack of a decent gestalt helmet but the rest of him looks good.

Well, you don't need all five members to form the gestalt and it keeps the price down, I suppose. They're marketed as being $12, so 12/4 members = $3 a piece. Same as you'd pay for the blindpacked Kreons.

These little guys look great. I think I'll actually try hunting down the 5th member to complete the full group after I pick up Predaking.

Also, I'm totally going to snap off thd front of those vests they all are wearing. Those tampos look great! It's a shame to cover them up!

Found all 4 sets at Meijer today in Michigan. I picked up Bruticus and Devestator. Really like the kreons. The decos keep getting better and better with each release. I think I might have to go back for the other 2 sets. They were $10.99 each.
