ugh. look, i'm sorry but, Unless these actually transform, (they don't)then I just can't get behind these.
If they had more of a transformable bionicle feel.....
Maybe, I mean I made a brimestone (Blue motorcycle) Bionicle, trike style, and it transforms into a bike, no disassembly required, same goes for my silverbolt, who is much bigger, but far less impressive for some reason...

Everyone needs to buy the set that has Kreon Skywarp to make sure that Tekka doesn't get it.

(Yes, I have now officially beaten this joke to death and will continue to do so.)

If anyone really wants to waste their money on these, TRU appears to have them available as well.

It was only yesterday that we received word from Hasbro that the new Transformers Kre-O sets were available for pre-sale, and today the sets have already been sighted at retail! Allspark member TSM-in-NY found the larger Optimus Prime set at a Toys'R'Us in Brooklyn. HISS Tank member sharky found the same set also at a Toys'R'Us in Atlanta. If you've been looking forward to these sets, or just lusting after the Kreon mini-figures it might be worth your time to check out your local Toys'R'Us.

Gee, I didn't realize this was news. We've been stocking and shipping out Kre-O from the Amazon warehouse I'm in for a few days.

Probably wont buy any cause it's freaking expensive. I heard the biggest Kre-O costs 60 dollars...That's 17 dollars more than a frickin leader class~!

Technically you had to disassemble parts and reattach them, so they're more like parts-formers.

what i find funny is that hasbro said something about parents complaining about kids having difficulty transforming rotf figures. yet they release 100-300+ piece lego sets for them to put together and take apart to make the vehicle.


this wont end well and you can quote me on that.
