Toy Fair 2014 Age of Extinction Kre-O Official Images

Posted on 02-17-2014 at 05:13 AM by Sol Fury under Kre-O
Obsidian More Transformers toy goodness coming to you now! Hasbro has sent us official images of the not-cancelled-after-all Kre-O Transformers series. These Age of Extinction Kre-Os are now moving in a different direction to the earlier Kre-O sets and are focusing primarily on Kreons - the build sets, for example, consist of Kreons with buildable Dinobots or smaller bases, with the Lockdown Air Raid set giving us a buildable spacefighter craft that seats a Kreon.

That's not all though as these new official images include a look at the four new Age of Extinction custom Kreons, the four new Age of Extinction combiners, and the fifth wave of Kreon blindbags - which, while advertised in the files as movie sets, are very much still Generation 1 inspired and include Kreon minifigures of the likes of Jetfire, Mindwipe, Nightbeat, Dead End and Highbrow!

The full listing of what we have for you here is as follows:

Kre-O Build Sets - Cell Block Breakout, Dinobot Hauler, Dinobot Charge, Galvatron Factory Battle, Lockdown Air Raid, Grimlock Street Attack, and Street Chase

Movie series Custom Kreons - Drift, Lockdown, Optimus Prime and Ratchet

Movie series Kreon Combiners - Grimstone (Mollox, Ironeye, Crackback and Iquanox), Lazerbolt (Freezeout, Bullhorn, Floodgate and Roadhound), Obsidian (Freefall, Hemocron, Bullwark and Stronghorn), Volcanicon (Farside, Power Surge, Liftoff and Lugmutt)

"Movie series" Micro Changers - 12 different ones shown, some of whom may be new characters to go with the new Kreon Combiner sets. The names have been confirmed as (left to right) Wingspan, Fangwolf (based on Cybertron Snarl), Jetwash (based on Generation 1 Jetfire), Silversnout, Misfire, Mindwipe, Nightbeat, Trypticon, Jarugar (from Transformers Victory), Highbrow, Torosaur and Skrapnel.

Rumor - Possible Kreon Tailgate on the way?

Posted on 11-29-2013 at 12:50 PM by Sol Fury under Kre-O
TailgateSig_zps3e61a93e This one is another rumor for the rumor mill, so take it with a pinch of salt.

2005 Boards member Moroni Prime noticed that on the Kre-O Nation site, when creating your username you are offered a list of Transformers names, all bar one of which are existing Kreons. The one who is not? Tailgate.

Does this mean that a Kreon Tailgate is in the works, or does it just mean whoever was tasked with picking out the list of Transformers names just like the name Tailgate and put him on the list (we should point out the list draws heavily on characters from Transformers Prime, the movie series and the War for Cybertron game - and Tailgate was a character in Transformers Prime). That being said, there is a Windcharger Kreon out there, so a white redeco may not be beyond the realms of imagination.

For now though, take this with a grain of salt.


Image attached to this story taken from the signature of 2005 Boards member SPLIT LIP, because More than Meets the Eye Tailgate is awesome.

Kre-O Custom Kreons Wave 2 Revealed

Posted on 11-17-2013 at 06:21 AM by Sol Fury under Kre-O
_--5_1 The next wave of Transformers Kre-O Custom Kreons has been revealed, by way of a new listing at our sponsors Robot Kingdom. The second wave of custom Kreons adds in some characters who have not been available outside of larger sets before, like Cliffjumper, and some all-new characters, including Autobot Hound, Beast Hunters Predaking, and Generation 1 Dreadwind. The full assortment lineup is:

Galvatron
Cliffjumper
Hound
Jazz
Dreadwing
Beast Hunters Predaking

Each comes with an assortment of accessories, and optional clear and chromed parts. They're stated to be released in late November 2013, so they are not far off a release in Asia (where Robot Kingdom is based) so we might see these stateside before the holiday season is done.
