Now THIS is gonna garner some attention!

Lots of toy-accuracy going on with these. Blue Bluestreak, visor-eyed Brawn, face-masked Bumblebee, visor-eyed Gears, gray-eyed Hound, visor-eyed Huffer, silver-visor Jazz, blue eye-masked Mirage, mouthplated Perceptor, silver-eyed Rumble and Frenzy, yellow-eyed Skywarp, yellow-visored Soundwave, red-visored Trailcutter, red-eyed/blue-mouthplated Ultra Magnus, visor-eyed Wheeljack, visor-eyed Windcharger, and a lot of other odds and ends. ;)^

Very cool to get a proper Shrapnel. The one out now (red diaclone homage) just doesn't count.

Also at $2 a Kreon, that's a fantastic price.

This set doesn't make sense. If it were the class of 84 it should be the original 18 autobots and 14 decepticons.

Nice price point thought. Too bad it barely makes up for the admission and the rest of the costs associated with going.

Aren't Arcee and Magnus technically "Class of '86?" Nonetheless, I WANT THIS.

If it were the class of 84 it should be the original 18 autobots and 14 decepticons.


I would have gone for that as well. But Magnus and Arcee are pretty cool additions.

yeah, that shrapnel is getting the red one's parts, since they're inexplicably going with something other than those pincers. the improved seekers look great, skrapnel and sideswipe are mixed up, but that's not a major issue. my only real complaint is that they dont seem to have included a red pair of the pieces they're using as piledrivers, so we could use rumble as rumble instead of frenzy :P I'm not saying I'm right, just that the choice should be up to the user!

My god, that is a beautiful set! All those Kreons, mini-Rumble and Frenzy, original toy accuracy, mullets, floppy discs, rubik's cubes, brick cell phones, VHS tapes, and at an absolute steal! Too bad it'll no doubt sell out long before I could possibly even think "buy."

On the flip side, there are a LOT of repeat characters...

To be fair Sabr, if you look at the accessories, Buzzsaw, Laserbeak and Ravage *ARE* included in cassette form.
Also the only thing *REALLY* confusing me is why Shrapnel is using smokestacks instead of pincers. I hope they fixed this for the official release

I hope that some versions of the characters that are seen in this set makes it into some of the main line toys. I would love to get some cassette pals for my Kreon Soundwave.

SDCC exclusives, if there are any stock left after the convention is over, is put on Hasbro Toy Shop usually the following Monday. I imagine this and the Dinobots set selling out really quickly.

If they're anything like the regular retail Kre-Os, then they should. I mean, they actually fall apart and you have to put them back together into their alt modes, but it's still changing from 1 form to the other.

They look to be the regular non-transforming Kreons rather than Micro Changers, due to a lack of a noticeable amount of excessive kibble parts that enable transformation.

that's not of course going to stop me from replacing the micro changers that have corresponding figures in this set with these. Because that arcee and shrapnel at least are much better than the blind bagged ones. Brawn... might be? I dunno. Trailcutter probably is better than his set figure, but isn't there another one of him in series 6?
