KRE-O
What Are Your In-Hand Impressions of the Kre-O Transformers Building Sets?
puma - Monday, June 20, 2011


I was looking at the Kre-O figures on TRU.com and was wondering if anyone else has already picked these figures up? What do you guys think? I'm wanting to get Prime and the Autobot cars. Also, why do Sideswipe and Bumblebee both come with Red Alert Kreon's? Share your comments about the Transformers Kre-O action figures after the jump.

I've picked up the small Bumblebee & Prime and the Jazz set, but have only assembled Bee so far. A lot better than the BTR sets, even if it's the smallest set. A good representation of Bumblebee with an impressive headsculpt. Is it based on Classics `Bee or maybe WFC? Prime is obviously... read more

I am an avid Lego fan, as well as a fan of transformers, so this was a match made in heaven for me. I picked up optimus and megatron, and have to say, I have fallen in love with these kreo sets, Prime especially! I was honestly very impressed with the engineering that went into this building set... read more

I do want Jazz and Prowl but i'll wait for now and see if i can find them on sale in the future...or get them for my birthday.

Well, I would think most of us here buy our plasti-crack because it transforms w/o having to part them out(call me silly on that..). I've had my run with lego's and still think they are very neat, however, speaking for myself, if I want parts formers or lego-formers, I'll buy them or bu... read more

I grabbed Prime and Bumblebee for my son, cause he's a lego nut, but they're okay at best. Especially, when you see the transforming stuff people have already done with Legos: (link) (link) (link) (link) (link) (link) (link) But obviously, the big selling point are the... read more

They look neat I will give them that, however, with the non transforming and the fact that these seem like a wasted vein for money where so many other better, TF's(Third party, Re-issues, ETC.) are coming, gotta say no with a vengeance.

so far i love them.. the G1 homages are what sold me on them. It really doesn't bother me that they don't transform.

More KRE-O News
By way of Autobase Aichi, Facebook user Eddy Melendez has shared a series of photos of Robots In Disguise Custom Kreons! The characters available are Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, and Grimlock, and appear to be available in Regular, Blizzard Strike, and Night Strike color schemes. Each of the four characters comes with their own unique weapons, but the armor pieces seem to be repeated across all 12 variants. Keep reading for the photos!
At the very tail-end of the Kre-O line came the Kreon Battle Changers, which... honestly should've been the idea since the start! Thanks to Autobase Aichi, we know that these built-up, transforming versions of the Kreon minifigures have been spotted at a California Dollar General by Facebook and TFWiki user Eddy Melendez, who posted these photos to a private Facebook group. This seems to be one of the first US sightings of the Collection 3 Megatron and Ironhide. Keep reading to see!
Greg "M Sipher" Sepelak has made an interesting discovery about the reissued blind-bag Kreon Micro-Changers appearing at US dollar stores - they're not reissues at all! They're entirely reversioned pieces using the updated 2015 Kreon body and entirely new tampograph applications. Keep reading for an example photo as well as more info on the differences!
You haven't seen the last of Kre-O in the US yet! Engledogg reports spotting two new $12 sets at his local Dollar General store. One features a repackaging of the Beast Hunters sub-branding Beast Blade Optimus Prime now as Beast Hunter Optimus Prime, and the other is a grouped set of the micro combiner Superion, Bruticus and Menasor, packaged as Combiner Robot Mega Pack. While for the remaining fans of the line this may not be the news they would hope for, it may still be promising that the branding is being kept going in some way in the US. Click through for box photos of the sets!
TFW2005 user Hollywood Hoist has found a nifty novelty: a new plush Optimus Prime that is clearly based on his Kreon minifigure! The plush is marked with a price of $19.99 and was found in a Washington-state Target store. Keep reading to see the photo!
