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!

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!

The official Transformers Facebook page has updated with official looks at the first wave of Kreon Warriors. This assortment features Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream and Shockwave in various "costumes", themed as ninjas, gladiators, soldiers, pirates and more. Each figure has deco elements implying vehicle attributes with some connection to their setting, like military Shockwave having main battle tank details or "Wiseguy Bumblebee" looking vaguely like a 40's gangster car.
