Probably a dumb question - do they have LEGO in Japan?

And is it as popular as it is in the states?

There's a popular Lego-styled construction system in Japan called Diablock, which does all that Kre-O does and more. Diablock made some sets for TF Animated as well as a G1 Optimus Prime set, and those ones I believe could transform without being disassembled. Got some information on those in our Resources if you want to take a looksie:

A quick google search tells me they get Lego to some extent. I don't know how popular it is, but they have gotten exclusives in the past, like this beauty: [Links are hidden for guests. Please Register.]

The Japanese will probably laugh at the kreo designs and replace them with something way way better.

I mean check the images which come out when you Google "japanese lego mecha".

Oh god, I hope there are no variants. Otherwise I'm going to feel obligated to buy them.

Not only do they have it, as of 2010 it was distributed by TakaraTomy!

I don't know if that's changed since though.

I wonder if takara tomy are gonna do fishing line animations with these.

I know it probably won't happen but it would be funny if it did.
