    If you've been waiting for the Kre-O sets to get a little cheaper like I have, your moment is now.

    I don't know if this is nation-wide, but I just got back from my L.A. area TRU, and they have Kre-O Optimus on clearance for $39.99 down from $69.99

    None of the other sets were discounted, but that was the most expensive anyway, and the main one I was waiting for.

    Thanks for the heads up. I picked this up online with my $20 Google offer Gift certificate. Plus I get 2 day shipping with ShopRunner. :)

    yeah :(  They do some sale sometimes though, I think Sentinel was going a bit cheaper now.

    Kre-O Optimus is also on clearance at some Wal-Mart's, at least in NC for $20, and no, I'm not kidding.

    Geez, if I saw it at that price, I would buy a second one. I'm loving this thing.

    You could buy a second one, since with more pieces you can custom build a way better Optimus. I've seen incredible custom-built KreOs, these bricks are pretty cool.

    Just finished putting it together in truck mode. Holy crap, is this thing magnificent. And I'm very pleased with the quality. I was afraid the plastic wouldn't be up to the quality of Lego, but if there's any difference, it's small enough to be negligible. And did I mention rubber tires!

    I got SS for $19.99 a couple weeks ago at TRU. Best deal ever. Now I have to find the time to build it. This could very well take years. :/ My Kre-o Mirage is still sitting in his package, and I got him in August.

    This is easily my favourite thing about Kre-O. Of all the clone brands, it and Oxford (which manufactures Kre-O bricks anyway) are the only ones that match the plastic quality and clutch strength of Lego. And at cheaper prices too!
