    Got 2 Megatrons (one in truck mode, one built following Split Lip's robot moc), Starscream, Sideswipe, Sentinal, Jazz and Mirage. That said, Jazz and Mirage have been cannibalized for parts, and Sideswipe will likely suffer the same fate.

    I'm also thinking of getting some Battleship Kreo, the alien strike set looks sweet.

    2 big Prime sets, 1 big Bumblebee, 1 Megatron, 1 Starscream, 2 small Prime sets and 1 small Bumblebee set to do 1 big transforming Prime, 1 big transforming Megatron, 1 big transforming Bumblebee, 1 small transforming Prime and 1 small transforming Bumblebee. I want to do a transforming Starscream but I've been procrastinating lately.

    I've got big and little Prime, big and little Bee, Megatron, Jazz and Prowl so far. I'd like to add Sentinel Prime, Starscream, Sideswipe and Ratchet to the mix. I really want the new Wheeljack we saw at Toy Fair and am kinda/sorta tempted by Devastator.

    My biggest wish is that Hasbro would get more creative with the human Kreons. Maybe instead of giving us a generic driver or soldier we get Spike, Carly, Dr. Archeville or even the kids from TF Prime.

    2x of all sets except the small prime and bb. I like them that way so I can display both modes without spending hours rebuilding. I'll probably do the same for any future sets I like.

    but this is my baby...

    all parts are included in the optimus kit for this build.

    I have Sentinel Prime, Megatron, Mirage, Jazz, Little OP, and Little BB. I've only messed with the small ones though.

    I'd love to get the Kreons, but dunno about the Kre-Os, mostly because I don't currently have room to display them. :(

    I have the Optimus Prime set, which I freaking love, and I have the Megatron set on its way right now after I saw it on Amazon for $21. Can't wait.

    I'm thinking of getting a couple of the smaller sets while I still can, since it looks like Target and TRU are trying to clearance them out.

    I have to admit I was pretty meh about these sets at first but they've really grown on me mainly for their alt modes. I'm not that impressed by the robot modes but I chalk that up to new concepts for Hasbro designers. Lego has a very large lead on them as far as set design is concerned. I've got Optimus, Sentinel, Starscream, Bumblebee, Jazz, Mirage and Prowl. Megatron is next whenever he goes on sale. And like many I think the Kreons are awesome!

    Is he going for less than $30 yet? WM had him on sale for $30 but I was hoping to pick him up for $15-20. Apparently some Targets around town were clearancing him off for like $10-15.

    I know it was below $30 or I wouldn't have bought it. Sorry I don't remember the exact price. I want to say $19.98 but I think that was Starscream.

    That sounds about right... I just pulled him up on the TRU website and it looks like he's going for $20. TRU is pretty far away from me so we'll see :eek: . Thanks for the heads up though :D 

    Oh and I randomly found Starscream on clearance at Shopko for $10 :lol

    The local TRU (the one that still had him) here was clearancing Sentinel for $20. And they also had a 'Buy one Kre-O, get one half-price' deal going on, but that might be over.

    I like the Kreo sets, I have Megs and the big Optimus sets, and If I where a wealthy man I would probably have several more but being that I'm not a wealthy man I find it hard to make room in my budget for them especially with all the canceled stuff that I'm having to get from over seas and what feels like Takara pushing out a new MP every 3 months.
