the minifigures are super neat, but of course, the big lego like toy is what they're pushing and I'm not much for that.

I find it funny that most people in this thread want the Kreons more than the figures that are actually being sold.

Seems to me like Hasbro needs to cash in on Minimates.

I think the disaster that was BTR is also partly to blame for the lack of love towards the larger figures. Seems like everyone is afraid.

I honestly looked over the bigger KRE-O's and There doesn't seem much like playability for kids there. Look at Starscream for example. In Jet mode, yes, kids could have fun, but in robot mode, it looks like they would fall apart and you would spend more time putting it back together often. In robot mode more of a display I'd say.

They do seem to be pushing these cause many people would want the KRE-ONS and you have to buy the bigger guy to get them. Well played I'd say.
New pics added as I find time.
