    That's rather insistant, "Build our dream" and not "Build your dream".

    Those poor kids... "Go on children, it's all right. Use your imagination..." **Smack** "YOU ARE NOT USING OUR MODEL GUIDELINE! YOU MUST CONFORM TO OUR PREDETERMINED STANDARDS FOR IMAGINATION!"

    The worst part is that this one doesn´t even look good as robot like Kre-Os, and retain the same flaw which is not being able to transform withoutr rebuild everything up... I can take somne parts forming but as far as either this or Kre-Os go, I am better stocking on Lego parts and making my own transformers, better engineered, just need tiores now actually XD

    Star Diamond has three new not-Kre-o sets out. These are larger sets than their first wave, and sell for about $25 each.

    I also learned that their earlier not-Bumblebee is actually called Hornet! Nice name. Can anyone translate the other names?

    Those look much better than the smaller ones, and the tank one looks really good.

    Here is something interesting. Seems the larger sets were sold already as just vehicles. They then added the a few parts and came up with robot mode.

    One reason they might look familiar is that many of the Star Diamond transforming sets were once released in sets as just vehicles. They took several existing military sets, added heads an some joints, and came up with robot modes. SO if you are the kind of guy who buys Chinese brick sets, you may already own them!

    I'd be interested in the head castings for the larger sets.

    I recently found some instruction scans for three of the larger molds.
