    Where are the Kre-O coupons people keep referring to? I've Googled, but all I find are references to old stuff from January that aren't current now. I know one of the posts in here was just from April or May saying he was going to use a $5 coupon...

    Nice! I can't wait until Devastator comes out (and maybe Vortex too)!

    Not sure about other Asian countries, but I think Stealth Bumblebee was released last week (haven't been doing any toy hunts until last weekend) in the Philippines, along with the following sets:

    - Optimus vs. Megatron (Battle for Energon)
    - Knockout vs. Wheeljack (Street Showdown)
    - Cliffjumper Kreon with 3 Vehicon Kreons (Decepticon Ambush)

    Greetings fellow building block fans, I was wondering if someone here might be able to answer a kreo question. Does anyone know why the kreo website shows different build photos in the products section than what we are given in the instructions?? I went to download some instructions that I lost and noticed that some of the robot mode photos (Sentinel Prime in particular) look much better than what's in the book. I've spent hours rebuilding the bot modes to make them look half way decent, but would have gladly built what is pictured for Sentinel. Just curious I guess...

    Click the link to see what I mean.

    noticed this a long time ago too. it's possible proto builds vs finalized instruction builds. most of them can be done with the supplied bricks though, so maybe they altered transformations along the way.

    as for building what the build photos show on the website, you're just going to have to wing it. afaik, there's no documented instructions anywhere on how to obtain those builds, so good luck figuring them out yourself.

    Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking, but I figured I'd ask here before letting it go. I doctored up my Sentinel with his leftover parts though I still hate his legs, and used Split Lip's instructions for Megatron. Sideswipe was taken apart and rebuilt using his own parts, and Starscream is getting some help from my Lego bin. Prime is the only other large one I need to build yet, but he's still a truck on my Optimus shelf...

    I'll try and get some pics up as soon as I'm done with Screamer.

    Wow, had to go all the way to page 6 to find the thread again... Anyway, I just wanted to put some photos up of how I "fan moded" some of my Kreo sets.

    Megatron was done using the "how to" by Split Lip, I just added a couple panels, and the fusion cannon. It's made with parts from a Lego space police set.

    Sentinel just got a little chest work and some new shins, while Sideswipe was almost completely rebuilt using both Kreos & Legos.

    Starscream has lots of Lego in him, mainly for filler though. His shoulders are the engines from the Lego Airport passenger jet.

    I still have to do Prime, and I want to clean up Jazz, Prowl, & Ratchet as well before the new sets start to show up. We'll see how far I get...

    My most recent Kre-O set, "Deception Ambush", I love this set since it contains Kreons of Cliffjumper and 3 different Vehicons, as well as an ATV, etc.:

    Cliffjumper with this crystal gun, there is a also a crystal torso included, but I haven't used it yet:
