Tformers sponsor Big Bad Toy StoreThe preview wave of Transformers KRE-O Kreons Micro Changers that were first teased earlier this week
will be blind packed in a case of eight (8) with twelve (12) figures in total, according to retailer Entertainment Earth.
Wave 1, or as Hasbro billed it, the Preview Wave, will release in August 2012 with twelve brand-new figures including Waspinator, Sunstorm, Spinster, Galvatron, Crankstart, and Scorponok.
The set is available for pre-order for $23.99, which is in-line with purchase eight Micro Changers at retailer at $2.99 a piece.
Oddly enough, the information released by Hasbro earlier this week along with the MTV reveal specifies six figures in the preview wave, so we are unsure where the discrepancy lies or the identify of the other six characters
Entertainment Earth warns that since this case includes eight figures and are blind bagged, there may be duplicates.
IMAGES OF MICRO CHANGERS
Tformers sponsor Big Bad Toy Store has posted images of Galvatron, Waspinator, and Sunstorm in robot and alternate modes.
BBTS has put a caveat that these are representational only.
KREON ONLY SETS
The Kreons were packed along with the larger Transformers sets when the KRE-O line first debuted last year and have been favorites ever since.
So popular in fact, some have stooped to outright stealing them from the larger sets in the stores.
Since then, many have been lobbying Hasbro to offer these little guys on their own.
At BotCon 2012, it was evident Hasbro was listening, displaying a couple of Kreon-only sets
that are out this Fall with a price of $11.99.
These Micro Changers will begin with this preview wave with the line launching full force in 2013. The Micro Changers Combiners teams will debut next year at $10.99 for a four-figure combiner set, with the Predacons (combining to become Predaking) and Combaticons (Bruticus) being the first announced combiners sets.
