The Kre-O display at Toy Fair 2015 was small but not without its own reveals. We get a nice look at the Kreon Warriors and Sideswipe Roadway Rundown set. Also on display at Toy Fair 2015 were new Kre-O sets including Battle Changers Drift, Blitzwing, Hound and Shockwave. Blitzwing and Drift are triple changers.

No pics of the Bumblebee and Optimus combiners?


Blitzwing coming with 3 heads sure is handy since I have a regular custom Blitswing that'd love a crazy face. But a metallic gold helmet? Odd.

Looks like they combined just about every Drift into that one. Colors/chest based on MtMtE, triple changer like Movie, minions like RiD.

And those "Warriors" are getting a second wave. Too bad most of them are repeat characters. Looks like some of them have hair. Uh...



Kreon are going weird and totally away from what got people hooked on.

I think the only one they missed is Shattered Glass Drift, and since he's a FunPub character who never appeared in anything anyway, and trying to include him would probably make things confusing, I can see why they skipped him.

I'm just surprised they picked Drift, with those modes I'd have expected Springer.

I was hope for an announcement for at least one more line of micro-changers with the new combiner characters, Alpha Bravo, Rook, Offroad and such to mash into our existing Kre-o combiners.

That said trying to push an 8th guy onto Superion may be hard.

Hmm, weird, thought I had sent those through. Sorry about that! The connection in there was a bit rough.

Yeeeess!
I think this if my favorite reveal. It's just plain absurd, the kind of thing people joke about, but I got a list of Kreons that could use those very same helmets (which won't be used in combined mode), so inexplicably it's both a stupid novelty and a highly useful set.

Now the trouble is can I even find it.

3 out of 4 of those heads on Bumblebees limbs seem to be in a great deal of pain..... But that one leg is having a blast.

You have any idea how hard it is for me not to imagine them screaming with pain/joy every time I look at the image, now..?

Holy crap, what is even this? :lol: I saw the Optimus made out of tiny Optimii before I noticed the GIGANTIC Bumblebee with little screaming heads for limbs! #-o

To be fair...it is Bumblebee...

Me too. It's cracking me up, it's like it's saying "Heeey I'm a leg!"

Those Battle changers look really good. The two I have were solid builds and fun to transform back and forth. One complaint I have from them is I wish there were a few more locking points in vehicle mode. I think Drift will have those, at least I hope it will.

No Chuck, he's saying "Heeey i'm a leg!!!... o" :P

In all seriousness, I picked up a few more warrior packs, and may review opening those in the thread I made for the first few packs.

LOL! Bless your soul in buying those Warrior figures. I gave up on blind bag Kre-O when it became legit blind bagged. Thankfully it looks like Joe is done so I don't have to worry about missing Zartan and Buzzer, just Zartan... On a positive note, Battle Changers!

Hey at least you had a chance at those Joe Kreons.
TRU Canada only brought in the first wave of sets and series 1 and 2 of the character packs.

It sucks that they have dropped the codes, as I ended up buying way too many AOE2 packs just to get Skalor so I could finally build my King Poseidon (never cared for the name Piranacon for that gestalt.)

Fellow users Editor and Samsonator both confirm the purchase, and have shared images with us of these themed Kreon minifigure reimaginings of established Transformers characters.

Hah. I spotted these last week when I picked up Strongarm from Toys r' Us. Didn't think they hadn't been spotted yet though! Didn't bother buying any since I think they look stupid. :P
