    Apologies for any vagueness but here's something resembling confirmation that the blind-bagged Kre-O Micro Changers are at least intended to be released in Europe - I picked some up on eBay and they're in multilingual packaging.

    The European bag on the left, US on the right. The code numbers, though changed from the US ones, still work so once these babies are on shop shelves, picking out 6 different codes will get you a full set.

    The instruction leaflets are also multilingual and there's the usual bit of paper with the regional Hasbro contact details.

    I neglected to note which code went with which figure in my haste to tear the bags open BUT the codes did end 0, 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, just like the US ones. I can't say for certain but it would make sense that they relate to the same figures. That would work out as:

    Crankstart - 221910
    Scorponok - 221911
    Waspinator - 221912
    Spinister - 221917
    Galvatron - 221918
    Sunstorm - 221919

    Same packaging as the ones I found here in Mexico, my guess is you will get them eventually.

    We got the preview wave packed with the TF: Prime magazine here in Germany. I have official word, that the Kre-O blindbags will see a release in January:

    (List not complete)

    The Kreon Microchanger sets will be released in January
    The Quest for Energon Sets in February
    Beast Hunters Sets (and I guess the mainline) in May

    I actually found these in a store on Friday in Farnham (Surrey, uk) called gamespod they are a small independent video games company. They sell some action figures but only get things wholesale, they don't sell imports or exclusives. So I assume that these are the general release uk stock. They're pretty good little figs, scorponok is a stand out

    I really hope those in Europe do get these soon, because I want them to enjoy these Kreons as much as we are in the States! :D

    We have had these in Slovakia (in Alltoys stores) for like a month now. Upon their original release, they had a special price "only 1.99 EUR!", now they are 2.49 EUR.

    After skipping the whole PRID wave 2, we also got voyager Dreadwing which was a nice surprise too.

    Yes, we've had blindpacks in Czech Republic for about a month already. Fingers crossed for the new wave soon.

    And voyagers Dreadwing, Thundertron and Ultra Magnus are here too. Who would dare to expect that.
