ok , someone needs to make one of these look like a 3ds !!!! and then make it out of plastic and SELL IT TO ME !!!!!!! lol
but seriously 3rd partys/customizers , this is a good idea ! you all need to try this ..... btw sonicron IS HORRIBLE !!!!
What are you gonna get mad at Mega Bloks too?
Lego.probably didn't want TF legos so hasbro decided to make KRE-O
Wow! This is really cool!
Power Up VT6 - Transformers Wiki
The blindness inducing shade of green on the screen is perfect. I still have my Old Ass First Gameboy!
That. Is awesome.
I still say slap a new head, a fresh coat of paint, a couple 5mm holes in the shoulder and arm for a new, included weapon and he'd make a kickass Universe 3.0 Soundwave. Maybe include Snarl and Dreadwing Minicons repainted as Ravage and Laserbeak.
Get to it Hasbro.
They dont make Bionicle anymore
You probably mean that damm Hero factory.
This looks awesome, I wish hasbro would make TFs of game systems/portables. (Though due to copyrights that might never happen)
VERY COOL! The graphic on the cartridge is a nice touch too.
Hate to break it you you buddy, but Lego does not holds the monopoly on construction sets.
Front page of TFW? Slow news day.
The details on this guy are fantastic, even if the overall aesthetic is pretty boxy/clunky. I love brick Transformers... I always find it sad that only the independent creators every seem to be able to do it "right".
Exactly, so I guess you should get rid of all your Lego, because of their questionable appropriation of another company's brick designs, right?
In this case, Lego's claim to that design has been legally disputed. There is no longer a "pure" Lego morality, if ever there was. If you don't like Kreo, fine... but make sure you're not boycotting them for the wrong reasons. Studded plastic locking bricks now belong to the world.
I don't consider any of those things "transformers". They're peripheral merchandise. Arguably, so are Kreo... but the fact that they don't transform, and don't generally look all that good in either mode is pretty much an indisputable design fail. It's actually pretty unreasonable to expect people NOT to be disappointed with Kreo's non-transforming sets. It's such an obvious oversight.
Lego lost any pity I might have had for them since they continue to refuse to evolve their product past what it has been for ages, especially when set quality has decreased by leaps and bounds lately. They are taking so many shortcuts in design of their construction sets some of them are becoming straight out flimsy.
There is 0 excuse for Lego Minifigs to still be as backward as they are, even Megabloks is beginning to surpass Lego in quality and design, not only in the Mini-figs but stability and and set aesthetics in general. MB Halo sets have went far past Lego Star Wars sets in my eyes at least.
Oh, i totally agree that its a huge oversight, but i also think half the fun of lego and other brick toys is building and rebuilding your creations and coming up with your own builds. Its a fantastic customizers playground. And the robot modes are kinda crap but i keep everything in vehicle mode and just have my kreons run amuck.
If he owns missing out, he can't be really, can he?
The turning point was when they realized licensed LEGO lines were far more profitable than evolving their own brand and put all their resources there, from a design standpoint.
