That actually made me hate it even more.

I want to like these, I really do, because it's the melding of TFs and building blocks, but I just can't get into it. At all.

UGH.

Not sure what the reviewer found so appealing about him... Still thought he looked sh*tty and that there are so many left over pieces between modes is even lamer than my initial assessment on these.

This is parts-formers taken to another level. If he could easily disassemble and reassemble to vehicle mode I'd have bought into this stuff, that would be a decent compromise. Requiring to be completely taken apart however is just not acceptable. I refuse to actually believe that Hasbro couldn't figure out how to make the conversions simpler.

That said, I like the little guys (the kreons).

And people thought BTR sucked, at least those could transform without having to completely take it apart. Maybe next time theyll actually take the time to figure out how to make them real transformers or partner with lego cause we all know they could do it. On a side note the little lego like guys are kinda cool.

Lego minifigures cosplaying as Transformers is pretty sweet. As for the main figure itself, it does look pretty solid. Too bad it can't transform without completely reassembling it. Could these be the only Transformers figures that require constant reference to the instructions? Perhaps.
Hmmm . . . Wonder if the missile fires. The review kinda sucks btw. It did not show off all of the aspects of this toy.

You guys complain too much -.-...Do you think it's easy to make a robot lego with articulations and transform to vehicle without tearing it apart? Not to mention both modes actually look almost like the real thing...

And besides this Kre-O is a SUBLINE. That being said they cant focus on it too much on the engineering...After all they still need to do more Cyberverses,Deluxes,Voyagers,HAs,Leaders and the Basics...Well maybe not Leaders but who knows?

Seriously you guys complain too much, Hasbro isnt some kind of super computers able to create anything you all whine-much-fans desires -_-...

That being said, this Kre-O are actually decent. If god forbid there's no more cool figures in like 3-4 months I might be able to buy one...For now I cant since I am broke >.>

Pot calling the kettle black, really. You're complaining about the complainers, but here's the problem...

We have legitimate complaints.

Kre-O is a good example of TINO. (TransFormers In Name Only).

They have to be disassembled to form both vehicle and robot. STRIKE 1!
They are ugly. STRIKE 2!
They don't even look like TransFormers, or the characters they're named after. STRIKE 3!

If it weren't for the heads, logos, and the adorable Kreons, we'd have no idea these were meant to be TransFormers based. They look like a Lego Technic mishap gone horribly wrong.

And they're rather expensive for what you get!

These are reasonable complaints, and we have every right to voice them.

If it makes you feel better, I'm actually quite glad they're not impressive. There's so much coming out that I can't in good conscience buy all of it...so the more that's an easy pass (especially when it's movie related crap), the better. That said, is it complaining or simply stating one's opinion? 'Complaining' would imply I'm in some way upset with the product...

Soooo....
yet ANOTHER Bumblebee...
AND they have yet to add his most obviously missing components!
Am I the only one here dissapointed that hasbro hasnt givin us a bumblebee with all four wings? they could easily turn all that kibble into wings with a few choice cuts and some ball joint work....
at leat you could add them to that building block one, but it doesnt transform!
I JUST CAN'T WIN

2007- 70's bee and 2008 Camaro bee and 2008 Camaro bee premium version retooled battle mask head.

2009- 2007 retool with arm cannon. Shoulder cannon bumblebee and battle blades

2011- DOTM Bumblebee turbo bumblebee and (BLANK)

how is disassembling legos from one form to another a strike.. THAT"S THE WHOLE POINT OF LEGOS, to take them apart and build something.

i can't argue with you on strike two because that's your opinion. some of them are, some of them aren't/

as for strike three.. prime doesn't look like a a big red and blue truck? bumblebee doesn't look like a yellow sports car? prowl doesn't look like a police car? sideswipe doesn't look like a red sports car? mirage doesn't look like a blue and white indy car? oh wait.. they do. they all look like who they're supposed to be.
