    Okay, so I collect L sets as well as being hopeful for snagging a few Kre-O sets (Mirage, Prowl, Sideswipe, Megs and Prime, plus quite a few of the upcoming ones), and have this to ask:

    Since I have quite a few of the L Construction sets and pieces of the same size and/or theme (the Cement Mixer isn't in the Construction theme, WTF?), should I mix them? A few ways I'd do it:
    Front-End Loader+The Backhoe 'Con to make a full Front-End Loader
    Drill 'Con+The Drill from the upcoming Mine set
    Bulldozer 'Con+some random bricks I have, to make it bigger, but otherwise unchanged
    Wrecking Crane 'Con (Scavenger)+Technic Excavator I have to make his vehicle mode correct. I'll change the boom arm to be a claw, so he's a scrap handler.

    If I can snag a second Devs, I'd add these:
    Make the second 'Dozer a Dump Truck
    Make the second Drill a tracked Drill with a boom arm
    Make the second Backhoe a Cement Mixer
    Make the second Crane a Forklift

    Mind you, these are just some ideas, I would appreciate your input.

    I'd do it. Kre-o bricks are labeled, and they're really close quality.

    Okay. I'd have to use the upcoming Quarry Truck set from L for the second 'dozer (who'd become Long Haul) but otherwise I have all the set aside from the two that haven't been released from L.

    Finding the funds will be somewhat difficult.

    Never planning on it.

    Not sure how I'd do an eight-con devastator, other than having Dirt Boss be the head like in Digilaught's design.

    Plus comparatively Lego mini-figures are crap.

    The weird thing is that this is true.

    Both companies blow Mega Bloks out of the water though.
