Apologies for any vagueness but here's something resembling confirmation that the blind-bagged Kre-O Micro Changers are at least intended to be released in Europe - I picked some up on eBay and they're in multilingual packaging.
The European bag on the left, US on the right. The code numbers, though changed from the US ones, still work so once these babies are on shop shelves, picking out 6 different codes will get you a full set.
The instruction leaflets are also multilingual and there's the usual bit of paper with the regional Hasbro contact details.
I neglected to note which code went with which figure in my haste to tear the bags open BUT the codes did end 0, 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, just like the US ones. I can't say for certain but it would make sense that they relate to the same figures. That would work out as:
Crankstart - 221910
Scorponok - 221911
Waspinator - 221912
Spinister - 221917
Galvatron - 221918
Sunstorm - 221919

Same packaging as the ones I found here in Mexico, my guess is you will get them eventually.

We got the preview wave packed with the TF: Prime magazine here in Germany. I have official word, that the Kre-O blindbags will see a release in January:
The Kreon Microchanger sets will be released in January
The Quest for Energon Sets in February
Beast Hunters Sets (and I guess the mainline) in May

I actually found these in a store on Friday in Farnham (Surrey, uk) called gamespod they are a small independent video games company. They sell some action figures but only get things wholesale, they don't sell imports or exclusives. So I assume that these are the general release uk stock. They're pretty good little figs, scorponok is a stand out

I really hope those in Europe do get these soon, because I want them to enjoy these Kreons as much as we are in the States!

Were they not supposed to get released in Europe?
