Lego Launch Creator Transforming Toy Line - Can Habro's Kre-O Win The Building Block War?

By Jack on Sunday, October 21, 2012

May of us wondered what Lego would do about about Habro's foray into building block territory with their Kre-O line. Lego indeed taken notice and responded with their very own Transforming toy-line effectively stealing back their stolen ideas, Touche Lego! They have listed a Creator figure on their site that shows a new kit for the "31007-1: Power Mech" that appears to be a "3 in 1" triple changer robot, to helicopter, to construction vehicle in modes and green colors you may recognize.

I've been collecting Lego products since 1994, but I'm sorry lego...I gotta give it to Kre-O between those and the Power Mech here Why? Articulation. I KNOW you could've easily made his knees bend too. Exo Force, anyone?

Lego would own Hasbro, as Lego has been doing this a lot longer than Hasbro. And all of Hasbro's have been crap since the get go, and Kre-O has been on the clearance shelves for months almost a year and still Hasbro thinks they can bring a profit
