    Can't wait to get these guys, particularly Bruticus (especially since I've found Blast Off). Though the Walmart and Target I went to don't seem to have a Kre-O section anymore. Target has the Microchangers in the back with Valentine's crap, but nothing, not even a space open, in the building set toy aisles. Strange...

    I want these just for the individual Kreons...the combiner and vehicle modes do nothing for me.

    yeah those "5th members" aren't easily integrated with the combiner sets. I've seen a few pics on chinese blogs and they look horrible shoe-horning them together

    These things look like just OODLES of fun.

    $10.99 price tag surprises me. Why? Well, I added the set of four for $37.99 to my POL on BBTS the other day. I kept checking our resources and looking back at their page to see if I was getting a good deal. The price since, has gone up to $39.99.

    It's not a huge difference, but it's rare to SAVE a few bucks on BBTS. I should have mine in hand on Friday. Excite!

    It was actually cheaper through TFsource for all 4. Sure they are 10.99 but once you figure in the shipping it evens out.

    Well, I through them into a POL at the last minute. Cost like a buck and some change. STILL. BBTS had something availlable less than retail. I'm sure that's happened at one point or another, but this is the first time I've taken advantage of it. :) 

    What was the price at TFSource?

    Yeah I am pretty sure WM is getting rid of Kreo, I don't know if it's all but out of the ones in my area and all the way to Georgia it's gone.

    WM seems to be not carrying anything these days in any section of toys.

    I need those all though looks like this will be something I will just get somewhere on line.

    Also, when TRU had the buy one get one 50% off the other day it does not include Kreo since it's not a Transformers action figure.

    I am sure if you argued you could get it, but I am assuming its on the action figure skus and not the kreos.

    Ok, just ordered from TF source, man I don't think I have bought anything since the WST Dinorobots from them.

    $10.99 for these is a good price. We're paying $3 for individual Kreons and we get 4 plus some extra pieces.

    Tried that, but they're considered Building sets and not action figure or role play so they didn't qualify. Otherwise, I would have gotten a heck of a lot more.
