Here's some sudden news from a line that most may have forgotten: Transformers Kre-O Battle Changers have been spotted at Dollar General store (the actual location is not given by the source, user Eddie of Talk Transformers)! And not just old figures again, but two new sets entirely: check out below images of Shockwave and Grimlock, plus newcomers Ironhide and Megatron!

Interesting. My local DG has had repacks of older stuff for a long time. If it would have been the proposed Blitzwing & Drift Triple Changers, or the BB and Optimus Combiners we never got I would have been all over those....

Maybe then there is a sliver of hope those unreleased 3rd wave of warriors kreons might show up there?

These are really interesting. I guess Hasbro sees a viability in market 6 stores. There were also RID sets that apparently were never released.

We have some brand new images of some Transformers RID Kreo sets. While the original post is in Japanese, we can gather that several characters from RID will become Kreo figures. Optimus, Bumblebee and Grimlock and Sideswipe will get three different colorations making a total of 12 figures to collect. The actual source is Eddie Mendelez, snakas just showed the images.

Also upon translating this article it is important to note that these figures were found at Dollar General. So if you are around Japan it might be worth it too have a look.

The same poster as the discovery report of Kre - O battle changer the other day, this time also found shops in Dollar General.



Let us know which Kreo figure is your favorite on the boards.

Looks like they'll have knee articulation. Neat.

"Sideswipe" looks more like Knock Out in my eyes.

And elbows. These are based off a China exlusive line that was made for a kids show.

Good to see Kreo-O is not entirely dead. I was not aware Dollar General existed in Japan. Should I eve bother checking my local store? They had many of the repack sets, but haven't seen anything new like these. See my want list, I'm still looking for the unreleased Series 3 Warriors... :(

Awww, yeah, more Kre-o! Can't wait for these to show up.

WreckerJack: Sideswipe's resemblance to Knock Out is no coincidence; that helmet was originally made for a Knock Out Kreon. They didn't seem to make Sideswipe quite as red here as he usually is, though, so the similarities kind of add up.

From article:
Also upon translating this article it is important to note that these figures were found at a Dollar General store, and not Japan - so keep your eyes peeled for your next visit.

ok, so when I read things before 7am, I see them as

:lol:

OK, that's good, makes a lot more sense. Also on my recent vacation I was able to visit many a "small town" USA, and noticed many of them had a Dollar General, kind of cool.

So glad I found this (hopefully not dead) thread. I've recently acquired the Class of '85 set and I want to know: once opened, can it be resealed?

What I found from a review was that is claims to be resealable...... I never opened the one I own so i can't speak from personal experience although I am sure someone on this site probably has that actual answer. Great find though. I Loved this line.

Thanks! I honestly never expected anyone to reply to this.

I am a huge Kreon fan, unfortunately I didn't feel qualified to respond because I never opened my class of 84, or 85 set either. For the longest time it was my goal to collect all the individual TF Kreon mini figures (not counting humans).

The last time I counted, I had everything released from 2011-2015, and it was 354 unique individual TF Kreon's. Of course I never got the unreleased "Warriors" series 3, or the Soccer BB, or some of the later customs that started showing up in family dollar/dollar general stores. Also i was really saddened that we never got a class of 86 set, but by that time, the writing was pretty much on the wall.

Well, looky what we have here. A 9-pack of Kreons that were previously only available in the 2015 Robots in Disguise Kre-O building sets, with one exception of a unique Kreon never-before-released outside of this set: Polarclaw!

From what I can deduce, this 9-pack seems to have been exclusive to parts of Europe and Asia.

The set contains Springload, Optimus Prime, Polarclaw, Fracture, Sideswipe, Strongarm, Ped, Hammerstrike, and Underbite.

Nice. Fortunately I was able to get all the RiD sets as they showed up at Ross/Marshalls etc.. I'll have to dig out my old list. I was quite obsessed with catching em' all for a time, before Generations really got me back into things.

I actually considered selling my collection for a bit, to which my son was resoundingly against, so we still have them all.

I'm eyeing a fairly inexpensive Soccer BB and Summer Drift on eBay I my pull the trigger on. Other than those two I think the only ones I never obtained was the Optimus that was a Free TRU giveaway in Canada (cant recall it's name at the moment), and the Unreleased 3rd Kreon Warriors assortment.

All the re-releases that showed up at Dollar General later, even with minute differences, I didn't bother with.
