Good news Kreon fans, the next wave of Kre-O Micro Changers have been spotted at a Singapore Toys"R"Us. These little guys was spotted by Seibertron.com member gavinfuzzy.

He tells us that there is an embossed code on the back of the red flap. Springer is 22981 42. Hopefully we can get more confirmation to see if this code is unique and identifies Springer, and perhaps a comprehensive guide to identify all the figures. We will let you know as soon as this information is available.

Hopefully these will hit retail near you soon. If you find them in your neck of the woods, let other Seibertronians know by posting your finds in our Toys Sightings Forum.

This wave features the following 12 kreons.

  • Autobot Springer
  • Inferno
  • Quickslinger
  • Rampage
  • Insecticon
  • Singe
  • Decepticon Hook
  • Warpath
  • Dirge
  • Blast Off
  • Decepticon Bludgeon
  • Airachnid

Singe I take is supposed to be Scorch. Kre-O loves their crazy homages.

Can't wait to get these guys. Hopefully Target carries them; they did NOT carry the "preview" wave...

Airachnid looks great, Bludgeon burns my eyes in a good way, and definitely looking forward to snagging me a little Warpath! They did a great job with Springer there, and I'm hoping the same for Inferno and Slingshot; I need a better look at the two of 'em.

Erhmahgerd, I need them all! Most of them, anyway. Hopefully there's a code guide soon. Much better than the truly blind-packed Lego minifigures.

Warpath's helmet makes him look more like Ironhide. Oh well.

On the contrary, I think true bind packs are better, as it takes skill to get thoes you want. :lol: Or you could buy the whole case.

Besides, I thought lego was expensive at $4.... till Kreo came along.

If I'm only missing one figure, I don't want to still have a 1 in 12 chance of finding it. I'd rather be able to just get the one I want. If you want to go true blind, just ignore the numbering. :P

Nice use of rape in the opening post. Really approprite stuff - made me laugh.

Up next: 'kristalnacht', and how to use it in the context of children's toys.

Wish all the other Kreons had block stands.

Well, there goes my fun with raping the packs to find the figures. :-(

Or I'll go codeless and still rape all the packs. :lol:

Looks like these one has some improvement than the last wave. A base stand, more Kreons. Quite good.

I really hope the Kreons will be improved more in the next wave. I think next wave is the time to actually have distinguishable helmets for the characters. No more of these reuse other character helmets on the Kreons. Some worked well, like Sideswipes on Scorponok's, but others like Warpath and Galvatron...they really need a more defined head. We can't keep trying to squint our eyes trying to please ourselves.

Also more paint apps on the Kreons would be nice in the future.

Just hope Kre-O take notes on these suggestion. Yeah, you can't get everything right on first try. Good start anyway. Hope they'll do better.

I'm looking to get Airachnid anyway.

It's not funny, it's not big, and it's not clever. It just makes you look like a creeper.

Nice, they come with blocks to stand them on! I wish the preview wave had, but oh well.

So this list is confirmed by more than one source? Can't wait to start hunting for these. :D

Perhaps you prefer the term Feel up?

Is Quickslinger supposed to be the 5th Aerialbot?

You fool! :michaelbay:
It's Slingshot. Just because the poor guy once crumbled to nothingness doesn't give you the right to forget he existed. :-(

Yup. Blame trademarks for this one. "Slingshot" can't be claimed for whatever reason, so "Airazor" was used instead for Universe/RotF Superion set and now he's Quickslinger. That name suits him better I think.

Slingshot will never die, he'll just be in pieces here and over there...and over there....

I wonder if they'll play off his G2 toy's fate in his bio like they did with Masochistinator. :lol:

Ehm... Apparently Slingshot has done more than just change his name. Or HER name rather. Yup, I did some looking and found out that Quickslinger is a fembot's name :shock:

I knew I should have been suspicious when he went with "Airazor"
