    Possibly only good for UK residents but.....

    Doctor Who Adventures comic issue 240 comes with a FREE Kreon Optimus Prime minifigure.

    To the newsagents ! I'd rather pay £3 for a comic I don't need rather than however much the Optimus Prime set is.

    That's pretty cool, does the Kre-O come attached to the magazine or do you have to claim a slip or whatever?

    Attached to the magazine. I don't know which version it is yet. Edit a friend tells me it is the open chest version.

    Of course it is. They apparently made like a million units of it. Was SUPPOSED to be only given away at botcon from what I gather, but over production led to them being given away a few times after. This is about the 50th thing Ive seen them being given away with now.

    Wow. Hasbro must be sitting on a TON of those Kreons, given how many ways they're looking to give them away....

    Hasbro made enough of these Kreon Primes that Scrooge McDuck could swim in them.

    You think with Character having their own Lego-style Doctor Who figures they'd be giving one of those away instead of a Transformers product :lol

    Hey, at least this time it is being offered in the UK, we never got a chance to get it before this. Might have to slap down the £3 tomorrow just for the kreon :lol , I hope to get the big prime at some point anyway but at the moment the kreon will do just fine.

    This is extremely relieving thanks for the heads up! :) 
    Does anyone know whether it will be packaged in the SDCC box or just a baggy? Thanks
