The reveals just keep coming this week! Our German friends at NTF-Archive.de have posted images from a catalog that was at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, and among these images is our first look at the Kre-O Devatator that we first heard about from the UK Toy Fair. Kre-O Devastator is a 9 in 1 playset with four G1 style robots/vehicles in ROTF colors that can be reassembled into Devastator. The set also comes with multiple Kreons and a construction environment.

Check out the combined form below.

Last try before throwing in the towel?

Important to note that neither Devastator nor the little Kreons are painted. Devy's head appears to be that black chunk below the yellow claw that's grabbing someone.

Can't wait for this guy or FoC Bruticus. Year of the combiners!

I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt as that appears to be a prototype, all the Kre-o stuff has been pretty good so far IMO.

Well it takes after ROTF Devastator, not exactly prime material right there..

A part of me wants to believe Hasbro are paying a team of experts lots of money to design these things.

A part of me wants to believe Hasbro have imprisoned a group of smart children, seeing what they make from kreo and then stealing their designs.

After seeing Devastator, the thought of Hasbro giving grown men money to design it, doesn't seem plausible.

Now if you excuse me I must find out where these kids a being held and free them! *Jumps through window and runs off to save the day*

I think a rainbow Pony barfed and Devastator spawned out of it...

Well, he's got the drill, that's a part of G1 Devastator's design that we all know and love... if you watched Zone as a kid. :oops:

I think it would make more sense to make 6-7 $11.99 Sets ,Like Jazz or Mirage, of each Constructicon with 2 corresponding Kreons that could combine. I Say my idea's better than this shit

Well that's terribly disappointing. I thought it might be closer to the G1 version.

Will reserve judgement till after I see a correctly colored prototype. It is giving me a Scorponok vibe with the digger arm behind him. Also the small green Constructicon, no way of telling which Constructicon he is supposed to be, yet.

This was shown in the UK catalogue too, but as the person who got the catalogues had to sign nondisclosure agreements for the Kreo products the pictures could not be shown and the other Creo could not be discused. Kreo is now so much more than Transformers, you could say that that TF Kreo is less than half.

Still wish they'd just sell the Kreons separately. Anybody figure out how to liberate one of these displays from Target yet? I want one!

Of particular interest is the "Coming 2012" sticker behind the Ironhide.

like it. though it looks like a prototype.

He better come with some cool Kreons, or I will pass on this. I bought all the original sets, and thought they were ok. Besides the Kreons on my desk, they are all packed away except for Movie Bumblebee.

the face looks like a bunch of mashed up legos...

It is. No paint aps at all yet, not even on the little Kreons. Everyone's faceless.
Devastator's head is almost certainly NOT the arm, but the black piece right below.



Out of curiosity, was anyone really expecting a "G1" Devy? None of the other Kre-Os are "G1" at all, rather a mix of several continuities.

Sorry to this since you're other Kreo sets are awesome but your Devastator looks like shit. Back to the drawing board. G1 or no deal.

I never understood the point of "themed LEGO sets". As a kid, LEGO sets consisted of a bunch of multi-colored bricks to build whatever you wanted. That's what made them fun. If I wanted a Millennium Falcon, a pirate ship, a castle, or Optimus Prime, I would just get the real toy and screw the whole "I built it myself" concept.

When I heard it was 4 pieces, I was prepared for it too look unique.
Here it seems to be like, a next step in the evolution chart of ROTF devastator.

Really, I'm more interested in any constructicon colored kreons

I've bought all the others, even bought a random DrWho mag to get the special matrix prime.

I think i'll be buying this, but may be waiting depending on the price.

Now that is impressive! :APPLAUSE:

It's a shame no one at Hasbro has done any research into what fans have made from the humble plastic brick. They could learn a thing or two.

With the badassness FOC Bruticus is bringing, Hasbro told themselves, "One more crappy design, and we'll quit cold turkey."
