    How to get the Kre-ons without buying the 20$-40$ box sets? I see that there are ones coming out in small bags, but I can't find them at the stores. Is there a release date for them?

    Thanks,

    I clicked on the News button at the top of the page.

    From there I clicked Kreo.

    From there I found that wave 1 Kreo Microchangers are already out, 3rd post down.

    From what I've heard, apparently "buy the boxset, remove the Kreon, then reseal and return the boxset" seems to be a fairly popular solution amoung some less ethical folks out there.

    Actually, the fact I can't buy Kreo's individually cheeses me off, they should have blind packed varients of the ones released with the sets like Lego Minifigures and stuff.

    Microchangers is all well and good but... eh.

    The only non set Kreo I have was Matrx Chamber Optimus Prime which came with a UK comic, I wish there were more available like that.

    its strange that the kreons were the ones to hold the actual value. I've seen some go for $10 each. lots of people on the boards selling the kits super cheap sans-kreons so I think alot of people bought the sets on clearance just for those little buggers. I actually really like the building kits more than the kreons themselves.

    I know two people who did just that. It seems to be fairly popular among TF collectors who don't necessarily care for building sets.
