    If people like them so much why doesnt hasbro release Kre-on packs like lego does minifig packs

    Heres some ideas

    Kreon basic pack - 1 human and 1 transformer (£3 - £5)

    Kreon bonus pack - 1 human 3 transformers (£4 - £7)

    Kreon ultimate pack - 2 humans 5 transformers (£7 - £10)

    This would balence out the people who want the kre-ons and the people who want the actual figures with the kre-ons

    [Edit]

    The kreons that come with the transformers would have a better look/look diffrent then the pack ones to also make sure people buy the sets

    I believe Hasbro has already stated that they plan on releasing Kreo blind packs later down the line.

    As to why they aren't now, they probably found through testing that people were largely excited about the Kreons, and wanted to use them as a selling point for the Kreo sets. Immediately releasing the Kreons on their own would likely have cut the growth potential of Kreo as a whole.

    Furthermore, unlike the bricks, the Kreons use entirely new molds and body types created specifically for Kreo. There is thus a lack of elements that can be used as accessories to make new characters. That will eventually come with time, but for now, there simply aren't enough to create much variety.

    Finally, unlike the bricks themselves, the Kreons still have QC issues. Unlike the Lego and even Halo Mega Bloks minifigs, the Kreons suffer from joint issues, stress marks, inaccurate tolerances and poor printing. Those need to be addressed at some capacity as well.
