By Ender on Monday, June 13, 2011
Tranformers KRE-O figures are now shipping. I just got my confirmation that my order for the Kre-O Transformers Optimus Prime truck and trailer set is now being shipped. With over 500 parts, 4 Kreon mini-figures and 4 motorcycles included, this is gonna be one fun playset. Check out the time-lapse video showing Optimus Prime being built brick by brick after the jump.
With 542 bricks and other construction pieces, your child can build Optimus Prime in robot form or vehicle form with just one set! In robot mode, Optimus Prime's launcher brick gives him blasting power against his enemies. Build and rebuild him so he can best serve the Autobot cause! In truck mode, the 4 Kreon mini-figures can go in the cab or in the trailer with the 2 included motorcycles. But your child can also disassemble the truck's removable cab and build a mini-command station, and the trailer can be converted into a command center! No matter what mode Optimus Prime is in, you can use his powers against the Decepticons!

It's taken a while and we've had some interesting side-trips - wouldn't give up Kreons for the world - but we're finally getting the Transformers building product we all dreamed of: buildable brick Transformers that change modes without having to be rebuilt. Keep reading for the first promotional images of the upcoming Kre-O Battle Changers!
The Hobbybase has reported via Facebook that the series 2 2014 Microchanger assortment has updated packaging that no longer includes the individual codes that so far have been able to be used to quickly and accurately identify the contained minifigures prior to purchase. Hobbybase has advised that sets they sell will be opened to ensure full assortments, but in normal retail situations, it appears you're now on your own!
The Taiwanese Facebook page for Kre-O has posted images of an upcoming bagged set, Elite Optimus Prime. This 43-piece set allows you to couple a Kreon body and head with longer, more articulated limbs. The proportions are a touch wonky, but the Kreon's gigantic, childlike melon of a head balances things out nicely. It also comes with a 3mm-compatible version of Prime's Ion Blaster, which should go nicely with your Big Lots Legends Prime. Click through for photos!
