KRE-O
Transformers KRE-O Website Launches Today July 1, 2011

By BaCon on Friday, July 01, 2011



Hasbro have updated their official web site with news that an official Transformers Kre-O website will be launching July 1, 2011. KRE-O brings quality and innovation to the construction aisle. Each KRE-O Transformers set is ‘More Than Meets the Eye,’ with two types of builds: create a robot and then disassemble to build a vehicle, disassemble the vehicle to build a robot. Packed with play, most sets come complete with themed accessories and a poseable KREON mini figure in robot or human form.



Highlights from the KRE-O collection include:

KRE-O TRANSFORMERS OPTIMUS PRIME set

‘Roll out’ and get hands on with the biggest building set in the KRE-O line up: the KRE-O TRANSFORMERS OPTIMUS PRIME set.


Complete with more than 500 pieces, the largest amount featured in any of the 2011 KRE-O sets, builders can assemble the popular OPTIMUS PRIME character in 'vehicle' mode as the notable semi-hauler or in 'robot' mode to create the leader of the AUTOBOTS. When in 'vehicle' mode, the truck's removable cab converts into a mini-command station and the trailer opens to fit the two motorcycles and four unique KREON mini figures included with the set. The trailer can also be disassembled and built into a command center playset for the KREON mini figures. When in 'robot' mode, builders can blast into action with a projectile launching brick! The KRE-O TRANSFORMERS OPTIMUS PRIME set includes orange traffic cones and cool decorative decals. Available at most major retailers nationwide and HasbroToyShop.com.


KRE-O TRANSFORMERS BUMBLEBEE Set


The 2-in-1 KRE-O TRANSFORMERS BUMBLEBEE set allows fans to create and recreate their favorite AUTOBOT character in ‘robot’ mode or in 'vehicle' mode. In 'robot' mode, builders can convert the wings on BUMBLEBEE into a glider for KREON mini figures to balance on. In 'vehicle' mode, open up the driver's door and take up to two KREON mini figures for a spin. Set includes two KREON mini figures and more than 300 pieces. Available at most major retailers nationwide and HasbroToyShop.com.


KRE-O TRANSFORMERS STARSCREAM Set


Builders can construct the KRE-O TRANSFORMERS STARSCREAM set to form the STARSCREAM character in one of two modes: 'vehicle' or 'robot.' In 'vehicle' mode, builders can open this DECEPTICON 'jet's' canopy to fit a KREON mini figure into the cockpit, blast off removable 'rockets' and 'turbo thrusters,' or use the retractable wheels to pretend they're taking off the runway. Comes complete with more than 300 pieces and two KREON mini figures. Available at most major retailers nationwide and HasbroToyShop.com.

Check out these and more on July 1, 2011 at KRE-O.com!

Optimus Prime doesn't get a lot of downtime. He's usually either fighting the Decepticons, or dead. But Kre-O Optimus Prime has taken working as a hibachi chef in his spare time in this commecial from Stoopid Buddy Studios (Robot Chicken), a simple life he seems to enjoy... when Megatron lets him. Keep reading to see the video!
Entertainment Earth has listed a new series of Kre-O sets. The "Small Cubes" are shown in this instance as vehicle mode builds based on Ratchet or Prowl, with each kit including two Kreon figures. While the building portion may not necessarily appeal to everyone as you're simply building cars with no robot option, Kreon collectors will surely love to hate this new method for feeding their mini-figure addiction. Click through to see the picture and a link to the product.
Thanks to the TFCC on twitter who have posted an image of the Toy Fair 2015 exclusive Transformers Kreon Optimus Prime figure in the package. We're not sure what the repaint refers to, but it looks like a winter colors theme. We will post more details and images on this soon!
Youtube user chuckdawg1999 is back with a video about Kre-O Battlechanger Bumblebee. Following on from Optimus Prime, we get a good look at another of these builds that take the more positive qualities of Kreon Microchangers and bring in more brick involvement. Between these two and the Soundwave we showed you photos of yesterday, the Battlechanger line is looking like a strong move in the evolution of Kre-O. Click through to check out the video!
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!
