What would you suggest?
Optimus and Megatron are a little large for my tastes, but I'll consider em.
You can pick up the larger Prime for ...$30 (?) at Walmart right now...
I recommend it, though I've only had mine in vehicle mode since I got it... (I have the smaller one in bot mode next to it.)
I would get Starscream, but then again, I'd only do It because I like Jet aircraft.
SS and/or Sideswipe. IMO Sideswipe has a better bot mode but SS jet is just killer
For the price, Starscream is a good kit. The jet mode is great, and the bot mode isn't too bad. Also, do a search in the Radicons section as someone there made his bot mode look much better using only the parts that came in the kit...
Found the link...
wait for Vortex. he's the only worth-while looking figure
EDIT: Prowl is also a great one. especially his vehicle mode
The large Optimus Prime set is awesome and well worth the clearance prices he's currently at in most stores.
Dude, I didnt buy any of those at first. I went to kmart, and right now all of em are on crack head clearance price, but it only shows up on the price scanner.
Big Op $22
Got $5 kmart rewards, Used rewards, it was so cheap it was sick.
I bought em all except sentinal prime, $18
Looks like the Kreo line is continuing, So When I seen em on clearance I bought all those less than what that big op sold for.
Just go to kmart and get a few. Once I really started lookin at that Big Op I cant wait to build it with my boy.
umm.. it may be hard to believe but i own every kre-o figure so far and bumblebee is my favorite
The big Optimus is a really good set especially if you can get it for those clearance prices that people have been finding him at. The only drawback on the sets are the stickers they use. They're not very high quality.
I just bought mirage for $1.90, I have a couple others that I bought at regular price, but honestly, mirage is perfect for a one and possibly only kreo, reason?
1, Clarence or not, he won't make a dent in a wallet
2, his alt mode is awesome
3, he is a small box but comes with 2 kreons
4, he won't waste part of a day putting together
All this will give you a satisfying taste for kreo. He will show you all aspects of what they have to offer, and if you like, then you know to buy more. But because of the low cost and reasonable assembly time, you definitely won't say you hate kreo, you would simply say, it's not for me.
The Little Bumblebee or Mirage.
it's cheap so if you don't like it you won't feel completeley ripped off.
sentinel prime, it is literally the best set so far
I would wait for the Battle for Energon Optimus VS. Megatron two-pack. That way you can get Optimus AND Megatron AND Prime Kreons in one set.
Get Megatron,he is one cool fellow.
I find Optimus more fun. Especially his chest.
But I would still suggest the two pack that's coming out.
Big Bumblebee is awesome IMHO
Vortex. #1 priority with the upcoming line. He's an assault helicopter with Kreon seating and Missile launchers.
The Robot Head is perfect. Its got the retro vents, Visor, and faceplate combo. So many interesting colors.
Its also a battle pack. One of the nice things about these newer Kreo sets is how much more involved the Kreons are implied to be. Like there is some media that could support this somewhere. With Little Kreon NEST agents and MECH agents (I guess that works)
and I guess I could go all anime and just call the small transformer Kreons the Master forms of their Transtector bodies.
as for the current line. I have all the sets that are'nt Optimus or bumblebee.
Sentinel Prime is an Epic and satisfying build. But if you want something you will want to build in both forms comfortably. I'd say go with Mirage or Ratchet.
The one I suggest is Megatron. There is an alternate way of constructing his robot mode in his feedback thread here that is pretty good. Otherwise I also suggest to wait and get Vortex. He looks really good.
starscream is my favorite from the original releases. just an awesome alt mode and a bot mode that can look pretty sweet by using the leftover parts. personally, that was my pick for biggest bang for your buck.
