    Are you talking about Cybertronics? Or the scattered Kre-O releases like Battle Changers? Was there news about Kre-O specifically making a comeback?

    Kre-O sort of "officially" returned around January last year with those Trolls sets at TRU.
    Other than that, yeah scattered releases like Battle Changers.

    That is unfortunately what I thought. Nothing new on the Transformers end. I wish we had a better idea about Cybertronics and whether or not it's just a Kre-O rebrand.

    Re-releases are better than no releases.
    I am hopeful though that the Cybertronics is Kre-O reborn.

    KREO is Alive and Well ...But I think Hasbro’s trolling us. (ba dum)
    Saw these yesterday at TRU.

    I bought the bug because it looked the best “thing” to build. The other sets are just miscellany objects, scenery to make.

    I didn’t put the stickers on.

    It's a bit odd because if you go to the official kre-o website these are in fact the only things Hasbro features. huh!

    I bought half a case of Kre-o Micro Changers Transformers series 2 tonight. I ended up getting all 12 figures in the series. I am loving it and will look for series 1,3, and 4 tomorrow. I am late to the game just wished I knew about Kre-o earlier. I had lots of fun building all the figures and I loved the diversity and the accessories the figures came with.

    ^ ive never found a single Kreon battle changer in person, which sucks, because I loved the concept. I really miss Kreo, but I remember that, in my area, we didn't really have that many Kreos show up...

    I’ve stopped by a handful of Dollar General here and there over the years and I’ve never seen any Kreo-o. I’ve only seen Kre-o at a couple of TRU (not the one closest to my house)and Walgreens.

    I've seen a couple of them once before. I ended up getting Shockwave online. I like Megatron as well.
    They're still around in most of the Dollar Generals I've been to.

    The one closest to my house only has the big boxes of Prowl, Wheeljack, and Jazz with the big non transforming cars.
    This is the one down the road, and I hadn't seen the RiD Kreos before. Or that many Battlechangers.

    I picked up Nightstrike Sideswipe, since I don't have Sideswipe and I like the character.
    Also grabbed 3 blindbags. Ended up with Thrust, Kickback, and Nosecone.
    No doubles so I'm pretty happy with the outcome.

    Here’s my collection of Kreo-0. I have 50 of them from series 1, 2, And 4. I have lots of duplicates. I’m still searching for series 3 since I have 0 figures from that line.

    Nice. Maybe find someone who will trade duplicates with you or something.
    Have you tried eBay? I remember someone here mentioned a guy on there who sells them. I picked up a few there.
    The majority of mine came from Dollar General, 3 came from Walgreens, Combiners were bought online. Oh and a couple came from the Toy Federation.

    Here is my collection, not displaying duplicates (except the two Vehicons because Vehicons). There are 49 on display.
    Preview series, Collections 1, 2, 3, and 4, AoE Collection 1, Combiners, Battle Changer, and now RiD.

    It's funny, I never paid attention to these until my gf bought me a few (she knew I liked Transformers), now I have a bunch.

    Bludgeon, Nemesis Prime, Springer, Lugnut, Guzzle, Shockwave, Bulkhead, Vehicons, Onslaught, and Motormaster are some of my favorites.
