    I was searching youtube to see if there were any reviews of the free botcon prime kreon and found this video interview with the Kre-o brand manager. At about 1 min 47 seconds in she states that they will go on sale at midnight online only and be released in stores in july.

    Has anybody at botcon heard any information confirming this or maybe know which online stores are gonna have them? I know toysrus just put the kre-o listings back on their site but they have a ship date of june 16.

    UPDATE: Just checked toysrus again and sentinel prime and starscream are for sale. The rest are still preorders.

    LMAO! Ordered Sentinel Prime because I like his firetruck mode. Just want him, Bee, and Optimus. Might get Megatron later.

    I'm going to order Sentinel also but I'm waiting to see if the others go on sale at midnight. I really want that mirage and ratchet.

    If you go to Amazon they have this page on there site Amazon.com: Transformers: Dark of the Moon and if you scroll down you will see Kreons are coming 6/6. If you click on it though it doesn't take you to any Kre-o toys though. Maybe they will be added later today.

    I hope they change their mind and release Minifigures separately. They would sell like crazy.

    They could even do like the LEGO minifigs and sell them in mystery bags to get people to buy more.

    Bumblebee is up now for ordering Kre-O Transformers Set - Bumblebee - Hasbro - Toys "R" Us. Damn was hoping they would put Optimus up. I bet he is not going to coming until like July or August.

    UPDATE: Amazon.com has most of the Kre-o's up but they all are for pre-order and have a release date of July 1. Here's the link http://www.amazon.com/b/ref=amb_link_356149802_8?ie=UTF8&node=2944648011&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-5&pf_rd_r=0329ZZV6AB97GB0DA7M8&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1299359022&pf_rd_i=337344011

    UPDATE: Seems Target's website now has them up. You can currently order Sentinel Prime, Starscream, and Bumblebee. The rest are up for pre-order with a release date of July 1st. They had them all listed except for Optimus Prime with trailer. http://www.target.com/s?keywords=kre-o&searchNodeID=1038620&ref=sr_bx_1_1&x=18&y=17

    Well It looks like I'll have to order mine from target. Toysrus put everything back to preorder. At least target has free shipping on a 50 dollar purchase though.

    Agreed. I have zero interest in the Kre-O's but would absolutely love a collection of Kreons.

    Come on Hasbro! Make it happen! I'll even do blind boxes if I have to

    I plan on buying a few of these sets both because I like lego sets and mostly because of the Kreons. I hope a few fans that went to botcon brought up the idea of blind packs to the Kre-o workers haha. Both lego and megabloks do it so I hope hasbro will too.

    Has anybody read the little bios that amazon has for some of the sets? They are pretty funny especially Starscreams favorite book haha.
