    I never even know about Kre-o until last week. Previously, the only small mini Transformers I knew about were the Tiny Titans and Transformers Tiny Turbo Changers lines and I have dozens of each series there. My son picked up a bag at Walgreens randomly and I found out that it was Transformers. I bought one bag and instantly fell in love. Next day started to stop by every Walgreens and Dollar General in my area. I have so much catching up to do and still have 4 collection lines left. I am looking forward to picking up collection 3 hopefully soon.

    Right now I have all of collection 2 and am missing Iceburg from collection 4, which sucks because I bought 28 bags of collection 4 (goal was to get two of each figure in the collection) and still didn't get one of each of the 12 figures.

    I've never seen those 'power suit' packs here at all.
    How are they -- do they look decent without the power-up armor? Are the arm ball joints the smaller size, like on the Battle Changers? And do the inside of the body pieces have that peg that goes down into the hollow waist piece peg?

    I'll try ordering them from somewhere if I figure they're display worthy, or have enough decent parts to use for custom characters.

    I have doubles of each combiner, and all of the microchangers from each series, except:
    -preview series Crankstart, Scorponok, & Spinister;
    -series 1 Singe, Warpath, & Insecticon;
    -series 3 Ramjet;
    -& series 4 Iceberg

    I think he looks fine powered up or not.
    Added some vehicon parts in bot mode plus a bulkhead front bumper in alt mode.
    Unsure of ball joints but they look the same to me.

    Aaaand the armor makes a badass Warpath.
    Though he doesn't know the meaning of the word stealth.

    Where can I find online the Kre-o Cybertron class of 1984 boxset ? I can easily find the Cybertron class of 1985 on sale online but can't seem to find the 1984 box set available anywhere.

    I don't know if there were just less of them made but that's been the case for a while. Could be that people found the '84 set to be superior and bought more of them over time.

    That sucks but makes sense. Looking that the roster list the 1984 has all the icons and fan favorites like Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Hound, Mirage, Ironhide, Sunstreaker, Jazz, Sideswipe, Megatron, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, etc....

    Thanks for the offer. I'm in Taiwan though, and figured I'd check the local buy-sell sites again to see if anything pops up to save some hassle. Found a Crankstart, Spinister, Singe, Warpath, and Iceberg for NT$60ea! (CAD$2.65; US$2.05).
    With convenience stores here all having postal service, the sites are all set up to send to your nearest one -- super slick. Five more Kreons for me will arrive at the 7-11 just outside in a few days! Yay!

    My little Cousin is asking for a Lego Optimus Prime. But the only Lego Optimus Prime I can think of is Kreo. Is there any other?

    Except for Kreo Optimus and “Built
    to Rule” (from the 1990s) Optimus I
    don’t know if any official ones.

    you might find fan built
    ones online. Try searching on BrickLink.com. If you find one there you can actually buy the exact parts you need using their “crowd sourced”
    lego parts reselling community.

    But Built To Rule was for Armada. There was none from the 90s except a G1 Optimus by Bandai(I think)

    That sucks.
    I went back to DG and picked up 3 more.
    Huffer was missing the black windshield from truck mode. It's just a plain orange block. Fine for bot mode though.
    Got Seawing as well as a duplicate of Cheetor.

    Saw these again today and thought of your post:
    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg
    And here's the current state of my Kreons right now... all bagged up or in mid-custom limbo: image.jpg
    I'm gonna need about three 2-meter (6.5 ft) long shelves to display them all!
