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!

From SamsungHK we have a batch of new photos showing off Soundwave, part of a two-pack coming up in the new Kre-O Battlechangers series of transforming figure kits. While we don't have photos of Ratchet, the other side of this set, we do see Soundwave comes with a full set of little buddies in the form of Ravage and Laserbeak mini-builds, and Rumble and Frenzy represented by the smaller scale Kreons. The photos even show a way that they can all incorporate with Soundwave in both modes. Keep reading and check it all out!
YouTuber chuckdawg1999 has posted his video review of Battle Changers Optimus Prime! Chuck reports that Prime is fun, but some parts may pop off in transformation- which is certainly what happened when Grimlock kept transforming poor Bumblebee in the spot we posted earlier. Keep reading to watch!
"ROBOT! CAR! ROBOT! CAR! ROBOT!" Hasbro has posted a new 15-second TV spot to their YouTube channel showing off Kre-O Battle Changers! In the spot, Grimlock is extremely excited about the idea of fully-transforming brick Transformers - which, let's be honest, is what Kre-O should've been from the outset. Keep reading to see the ad!
Japanese retailer Red Mercury has added a number of product pages for imported Hasbro products. Besides wave 1 Combiner Wars and RID figures, they've offered up some surprise Kre-O listings. Besides the transforming Battlechangers seen in promo materials in 2014, we've got package pictures of Custom Kreons and construction sets based on the new RID series designs. With dwindling retailer support it's unclear how available these will be in North America, unfortunately. But Kre-O seems to keep pushing on, so there may still be a chance! Click through to see all the pictures!
Thanks to Hobbybase who have posted an image of the 2015 Transformers KREO figures that we saw last October at the New York Comic Con.
