    Walmart, Kmart, Amazon...almost everyone has them on sale now.
    Picked up Prime for 30 & Starscream for 20 at Walmart.

    The Prime deal is a steal since it's larger than the Sentinel Prime set that's also $30 now.

    Not sure if Kre-O is dead yet , it seems they're selling well with these new prices. It's also a good deal for Lego fodder.
    You could bould some cool stuff with Starscream's parts.

    I just bought Optimus for $30 as well...

    out of 5 walmarts, 2 kmarts, 2 tru's, and 2 targets around me, there is only one walmart with them on clearance. I'm hoping the price will go down further for me to get the rest of them, but as long as I have Optimus I'm good.

    I bought Sentinel for $20.

    Prime for $30 is tempting, but... honestly, anything bigger than Sentinel is sort of unwieldy. Plus, the Kreons Sentinel came with are excellent, Soundwave and Thundercracker being two of my favorite Decepticons.

    I would if they ever went on sale where I live.

    That said, I love Kreo and am generally perfectly happy with paying full price for them. As it is, I recently bought the USS Missouri set from the Kreo Battleship line, and despite its hefty price tag, have loved it more than any Lego set I've bought this year.

    Definitely not dead. It was one of hasbro's more successful products in the last report they put out.

    There's also new battleship kreo's hitting stores now, along with new TF kreo's hitting in the fall. So yeah, I think they're just trying to create a bit of shelf space now to make way for the new stuff.

    Glad people are able to get into kreo at these great prices though. If I see prime or sent go under $15 I'm buying more sets just for the parts :lol

    I'm tempted to snag a Kre-O Megs for $17 at Kmart, just haven't pulled the trigger yet. I would buy Sentinel, but really I just want the Kreons from his set...

    Not really interested in Kre-O anymore.

    I got a couple of the smaller kits and was not at all impressed (someone said that the larger kits are better but still.) Looking forward to doing more Lego kits with my kids though.

    With the coupon a while back, I got a Starscream for $16. Not a bad set at all, but the ankles were very weak in robot mode.

    I'll likely not get any more Kre-O, because SS was the only one I really wanted.

    Waiting on Sentinel to drop under $20 :eek: . I did pick up a second Optimus for $30 though. I think Ratchet is the only one I've paid full price for so far :lol

    Definitely do it! I picked up a second set because there is no way I'm going to tear this thing down again just to put him into his alt mode :lol

    Nope, I'll happily buy Kreons, I have no interest in Kreo though.

    I even picked up Ratchet and Mirage put them in my trolley and they put them back as a frivolous waste on money.

    Starscream's jetmode is my fav so far, it uses almost all of his pieces and just looks cool. There's a bunch of pieces left over from his botmode.
    Prime had enough pieces leftover to make a stand for his trailer.

    I have 2/3 kreon seekers now, crap, now I gotta buy Sentinel to get Thundercracker.
    So many red blocks he has, can build a house for a 3rd alt mode.

    Kreons cool. Kreo Transformers that don't actually transform, not so much. That being said, I own every one of this first line of them. During holiday season Amazon had huge sale on them. I thought for sure this meant they were not doing well and Hasbro was gonna pull the plug. Got Jazz, Sideswipe, Prowl, Ratchet, Mirage, and Sentinel for $63, free shipping.

    I dig the Kreons so I might buy a few more of these on sale.
