    I picked up the preview wave today, and the alt-modes are not very good. That's a golden oportunity to make some fan modes though! I'll start with galvatron. He's the one I was looking forward to the most, but his alt-mode is the worst of the bunch. This is a big improvement:

    He actually looks like a cannon now as opposed to Wall-E's creepy cousin.

    But yeah, great job with the redesign. Maybe I'll go fiddle with some of my kreons now and see if I can make some alt modes for dudes like Wheeljack, Knockout and the Vehicons.

    How come the cannon is so badly bent?

    I think kreons look horrible as a "transformer" but good play feature I suppose. I just like the figures as they were meant to be.

    Thanks:)  The alt-modes were a neat addition to the kreons. You can still have them look like the older Kreons by leaving off the extra bits in robot mode, so the alt-modes are pure gravy. The execution so far is not where I want it, but hopefully fans can improve the worst ones.

    It came that way out of the package. I'm not too worried, I remember hearing about techniques to straighten out bent plastic that involved heating it. So I just have to search the radicons forum.

    The alt-modes are a neat way to bump up the kreon lines that makes them feel more like Transformers, but they will never look great. It's more about making sure the gimmick is good enough that you don't just ignore it. I think I'll display them in alt-mode once in a while.

    Kreon Powered Convoy

    Okay, it's official. I'm having more fun with Kreons than with the main line. I was experimenting with some parts from an extra Sentinal Prime and after swapping out some parts for more acurate ones I came up with this.

    A pic for those that don't look at diaclone

    He retains all the posability of a normal Kreon

    And fits in perfectly with other Kreons

    To build him you need these parts

    Of course Ultra Magnus is just a color swap away. If Hasbro release these parts in the right colors.

    Thanks:)  The only downside is that I can't make an alt-mode out of those parts to make him a microchanger. I do have some ideas for making a larger build that would be more like the G1 toy(but with better articulation), but that definately would not fit in with other Kreons. I need to lock down a good alt-mode for Optimus first though. I want the build to use all the parts in both modes.

    Nice to see someone joining in on the fun. That's good way to use all the parts.
