    Kre-o Transformers Minifigures Series 1 Case - Hasbro - Transformers - Construction Toys at Entertainment Earth

    The news yesterday said 6 figures in the initial wave. This link says 12 figures, but it only lists 6 names, so who knows...

    Anyways, the 6 figures are:
    Waspinator
    Sunstorm
    Spinster
    Galvatron
    Crankstart
    Scorponok

    Hopefully the actual name will be Spinister, but you never know with trademarks these days.

    Suffice it to say, I never would have guessed these characters in a million years!

    Galvatron = awesome
    Waspinator = simply unbelieveable!

    boy I'll say. the Kreo line in he last week has gone from something wholly uninteresting to me personally to full on "got my attention"

    And all bad guys.

    I'll assume the other six are all Autobots / Maximals.

    Spinster? Don't you mean, Spinister? Or we are getting an elderly Con femmebot who still didn't manage to get a husband? :D 

    At any rate, looking forward to this. Kreons were the only good thing to come out of Hasbro's Lego knockoff line. Just wish they called them something else - the name Kreon to me, will always bring up memories of King Oedipus. :D

    Blind bagging isn't an issue unless there's something in there preventing you from feeling the contents.

    Us LEGO CMF collectors are pros at this by now :D

    Crazy choices are what Blindbagged minifigures should always be about. Awesome.

    Given that Con line up I'm hoping for some out there Heroes too.


    -ZacWilliam, Blaster or Fort Max, sure, but give me Scrounge and Swerve, and RUNG!

    They'll be cheap. Plus you can always buy opened specific ones on ebay.

    Indeed, my blindbag-feel-fu I accumulated during 7 waves of lego bags shall serve me well. :) 

    I hope these come with weapons and accessories too. Like, Waspinator should have wasp wings and a stinger rocket.

    Will be interested to see if this ends up as BW Waspinator or if it could possibly be a Green-Bumblebee repaint inspired by Animated.


    -ZacWilliam, it's cool either way and I wouldn't be surprised if we saw either way tonight or tomarrow at Comicon. So we'll know it all soon...

    They basically flip down to become the alt.mode.

    Can't believe that Waspinator is up there but I'm grinning so much right now.

    Give me an entire cast of Beast Wars and some Grimlocks please, my wallet is not ready but that's too damn bad for it. :bay

    They're Kreons. The cute little miniguys that come with the Kreo sets. And they come with clip on accessory stuff that lets the sorta-tf into a rough vehicle mode (that's the Microchange part).


    -ZacWilliam, we havn't seen the individual ones yet but they should be rather like the Combiner teams reavealed a day or two ago.

    Exciting character choices definitely a few thoughts though:
    1. I'm certain that an outside team is handling the Kre-O toyline (Outside from the usual mainline ala Titanium or Crossovers) as the kind of stuff we're getting like Auto Troopers, Predaking and now Waspinator! are the kind of thing Hasbro would never give us.

    2. These are going to be a pain to get ahold of. I imagine the price will be higher then LEGO's own minifigure series or Megabloks which is of course unhelpful but the case ratios will likely be awful as well. 12 different characters and 32 to a case? Hopeful it will be 2 of each character but we all know what Hasbro is like...

    3. I do hope this picks up, this might be a chance to get new figures of characters that haven't had the treatment in ages while the mainlines keep plodding on with their Optimuses and Bumblebees. Personally I'd like a Rattrap to pit against Wasp.
