Good news, everyone! We have reports that the highly-anticipated Kre-O Micro Changers Wave 1 is out in Singapore. The official wave 1 includes Generation 1 characters like Quickslinger (Slingshot), Inferno and Hook, alongside other characters like Airachnid and Singe (Generation 2 Scorch!) This assortment is not to be confused with the "preview wave" currently out in the US which includes Galvatron and Waspinator.

With the assortment out in Singapore, hopefully they'll make it to the US in time for Christmas or if not, to give us all something to look forward to in 2013.

Can't wait. Gonna try and get all of them in one go if the codes are still the same for each figure.

I still haven't seen wave one at retail...hopefully stores around here start getting them before it's too late to get Bludgeon...
Dudicus
This is awesome, but I still haven't seen the preview wave anywhere. If someone could tell me what stores and, more importantly, what aisle you can find the preview wave in, I'd very much appreciate it.

Ooo. This must be the wave that BBTS solicited.

Looking at these too, I'll wager that the preview wave's origins were somebody getting an idea and making proof-of-concept mockups using off the shelf parts and quickly made one-color tampographs.

These ones on the other hand... LOADS of new parts - the tank treads, Hook's helmet, and most importantly a piece of armor that ONLY covers the back, and NOT the chest.

Is it me or does Blastoff's shuttle mode look perfect? I mean, some of these vehicles suck.

This is what annoyed me most about the preview wave. They all have cool decals on their chest to homage their G1 design but it's covered by the chest piece holding the kibble. So glad they changed it for this wave.

Oh god the tiny Bludgeon and Airachnid.

Why are those things so damn neat?

jackgaughan

Grimlock_13

I second that! already own the whole preview wave Got lucky at my local TRU they put them in the tf aisle. Hopefully it won't be long before these hit U.S. shores and the code remains, there only seem to be 24 per display box so it might b a bit more difficult.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!!! Happy days!!!

Those tricky kreo people! I see what they are doing! In the combiner packs it only comes with four kreons, so those who want a complete team needs to get these! the constructicons need two more, so I'm pretty sure that they will come out with a long haul in the next wave. Blast-off and the other combaticons are an easy pickup. too bad none of my stores get them.

I actually saw these at the counter of the Transformers: The Ride shop in Singapore last week, but as there was so much awesome on offer didn't really think anything of it!

Seriously, that shop was collector heaven - MP12, Arms Micron Dreadwing, Reissue soundblaster, Deluxe Evac. Could have blown all my holiday money there and then!

I saw the preview waves in large quantities in both Kmart and TRU, but you have to check the lego isles, at TRU they were hidden all the way on the top shelf in the Kreo corner.


While these look super awesome I have to ask what wave Knockout is in? I need like 6 of him, I really hope these will be easy to identify like last time.

Good news is they will be, there is an easy code to follow, literally numbered from 40-51

bad news, knockout is only in the knockout vs wheeljack set, which i'm dying for my local stores to get in stock, i want that kreon

I hope more stores carry these things this time around. Didn't see any of the preview wave guys in any of the stores I frequent (Target, 5-Below, TJ Maxx, TRU Express, local toy stores) and had to get them online.

Haven't seen the Wheeljack/Knock Out, Vortex, or Devastator sets either.

I know wal-marts have them in the lego section, that's where i got mine, sadly my wal-mart only has carried the troop builder sets, the kreon packs, and the optimus and megatron set

Aw man I think I saw that set too, but I figured he was also getting a single release as well. I hate having to buy that whole set for just one single little Kreon but he may just be worth it.

I want them noooooooooooow!!!!!!

Agreed. Scorpononk and Spinister have very nice chest detail which helps set them apart, and it's covered up. Spinister was a big letdown for me. I mean, if you're going to do a super-obscure character only a fraction of the audience is excited for, like, get it right. There was a square helmet available... and the lack of a faceplate makes him some other purple copter. Though then again, maybe they figured not enough people would care. But I <3 Spinister (thanks, Furman and random swapmeet toys!).

New wave does look like there is a lot more detail. Given how nice LEGO minifigs look, and the detail put into most of them, Hasbro should try to compete. Springer looks like he gets the same lame copter chest piece that covers up details... but Blastoff, Warpath, Dirge, Bludgeon look terrific. And YES to the new armor piece for back only!

Yeah, I've seen Kre-O sections set out in the building set aisles in most stores, but there's such a limited selection. At most it's the new BB and Megatron/OP sets plus the troopbuilders, usually it's just old stock at full or inflated price.

Incidentally, I keep finding weird stuff hidden behind the Kre-Os. One of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, some Disney Princess castle thing, etc..

Hell, my closest Walmart doesn't even have a Kreo corner but I was able to get all six at a better one.
