Great news for Kreon fans! Site sponsor Robotkingdom has update their Facebook page revealing a new upcoming Kreon 5-pack. If you have always been a fan of the Kreon figures, but not the Kre-O building sets, these new five packs will have you covered. Both of these sets include the Kreons that were included with the first series of Kre-O building sets. Set A consists of; Optimus Prime, Sentinel Prime, Megatron, Soundave and Starscream. Set B consists of; Mirage, Jazz, Bumblebee, Red Alert and Skywarp. The packaging of these figures show art work for four of the figures with the fifth being a question mark. But as the image shows, both mystery figures are revealed. Both sets will be available for preorder tomorrow, March 22nd on Robotkingdom.com.

Check out the image after the break.

A link would help, especially for some people who don't want to go through the hassle of searching them on FB.

Sorry, just uploaded the photo. I'll post a link too.

Cool, thanks!

Glad to see I won't need to go through the hassle of hunting down the original sets to get the older Kreons.

I was wondering when we would see more of these sets. I was hoping they would include the extra pieces like the Microchanger Kreons do, so you could "transform" them. I still might get the set that has Optimus and Megatron in it, but I'm less interested now. Sentinel being in the set doesn't help either. Not sure why they have Starscream and Skywarp pictured there. I thought the whole idea was that the fifth Kreon was a mystery. Skywarp does kind of make the otherwise all Autobot set tempting. He's my favorite Seeker, and the Autobots in-question aren't bad choices either.

Custom fodder!
Too bad they spoil the surprise figure, not that mystery Kreons stay that way for long. Skywarp's kinda out of place there, given the Autobot car theme that pack had going; was expecting/hoping Bluestreak or Sideswipe.

Hopefully they keep doing this for the newer Kreons that came in big sets (Wheeljack, Knock Out, Ripclaw, Capt. Fanzone), even if it means waiting a few more months.

I kinda want to get each series as they come out. I'm more interested in the Kreons than the construction sets.

Series 1:
Optimus, Sentinel, Megatron, Soundwave, and Starscream (supposedly)

Series 2:
Bumblebee, Red Alert, Mirage, Jazz, and Skywarp (supposedly)

The preorder price is $15.90 for both sets.

That's a very good price? How much are the packs right now each?
Galaxy Convoy
The shadow in the first pack doesn't resemble Starscream though. It has horns. SS doesn't.
Starscream Gaga
So I bought all those crappy first wave sets to get the amazing Kreons and now their being sold separate?
Argh. How frustrating.
Noobicon
This is exactly what I was looking for! I missed out on the originals. Thanks for the link!

Cool, as much as I don't really care for the sets, it will be nice not to have to knock these out (if the pictures are indeed true). Was really hoping it wasn't some weird clear variant that I needed or something.
Sean Whitmore
Are these an RK exclusive? I can't seem to find them anywhere else.

EDIT: Whoops, never mind. I misunderstood the 3/22 preorder date.
updatedude
These guys?



Pics here.

Btw, the secret character is Starscream.
Shark Jumper
Sad they didn't re-release Sideswipe, he's a bit rarer than the others.
But I guess a set with Sideswipe, Prowl, Ratchet, Shockwave, Thundercracker, and some others might happen one day.

I really need a second chance at getting Knockout and Wheeljack without having to buy the set.

I am SO buying that first pack if I ever see it. I really wanted that Soundwave Kreon! I love Soundwave! And I also love Kreons!


Ah, I took another look at the picture in the original post. You can see white legs with a red waist which does support it being Starscream. A part of me wishes it were Shockwave despite my being a big Starscream fan.

Well, I'm not sure about in the US but here the microchanger bags are $3.50 each.
jbz
that should piss off a lot of people who bought sets or overpaid on ebay just to get those Kreons. I'm one of them
Niv3k
Yeah cool but I want them to be able to "transform" just like the Micro Changers.

Same here, I bought the sets specifically to get the Kreons. Once I saw how much the Kreon were on eBay, it was more worthwhile to spend the money on the full sets.

[SIGH] Guess I'll be buying these Kreon sets for display when I see them.
Lody666
Well that sucks for those that bought the sets

But where are the rest like Skywarp and Shockwave
bigkid24
And I just bought a bunch of sets to get the Kreons....granted they were dirt cheap but still. While I appreciate this effort they've pretty much shot themselves in the foot in regards to Kreo set prices. Now I'll never buy another set for them and just wait for these kind of packs.
clonemanager
I hope to see these at clothings discount stores soon...

I'll second this. If they'd mentioned this earlier though, I'm sure the sales would have been even worse. I didn't buy any until they went on clearance. lol

BTW, am I the only one that thinks the shadow in set one looks a LOT more like Shockwave than Starscream?

No, I thought the same too. However, in the first picture you can see white legs with a red waist on the box picture and to my knowledge the only Kreons from the Kre-O sets with those are Ratchet and Starscream. Neither helmet shape really fits the sillouhette but I think Starscream fits the overall theme better.


Then again, a Seeker goes completely against the Autobot car theme in that second set.

Where's the list with all kreo bagged numbers? I'm going check out my Tru in a bit

There you go. Good luck with the hunt. Bludgeon is awesome by the way.

Well, more food for thought is that in the bigger picture later in the thread (where it shows the first 5 pack clearly), there are NO wings behind the mystery fig....hmmmm. lol
updatedude
The shadowed picture seems to be more of a generic silhouette than a clue.
DPrime
Surprised they didn't include a new figure as the surprise, in order to entice those of us who bought the sets.

I don't mind. I got mine for really cheap, and now that they're doing GI Joe stuff, I'm glad to have the pieces. Gonna build me a Pit one of these days.

An Ark would be a good project too, but we need more orange...
starscream-99
Awesome! Been trying to get the ones from the sets individually on eBay but they're like $10 a pop. This is great news!!!!
korpen9999
Someone shall be picking these up... ME!

I was thinking Shockwave, but then if you look at it closely there's more of a resemblance to Soundwave because of the head crest. Which makes no sense. Why would they have Soundwave AND Soundblaster in the same dang set.

I'm kind of glad that I missed out on the original sets. Only really wanted the kreons anyway. Now it's just a matter if any other place will have them other then RK.
Niv3k
Ill want those characters but they would be more awesome of they were able to transform like the Micro Changers.
Bountyan
I wish they announced these 4 months ago BEFORE I bought entire sets and went on ebay just to get old kreons.

At least it's good fodder for making new characters. I need an extra Bumblebee so I can make Sunstreaker.

I wouldnt be surprised if we saw Sunstreaker later this year...

Speaking of Kreons, a little while back someone posted a pic of a huge version of one that supposedly would be on sale at some point. I wonder whatever happened to those.

* found it:

Kreo is better than Lego. I would p,ay with kreo's than watch Super Why. It stinks
Onslaught24
Sweet! Definitely getting this
Matrixbeast
Well, now I can get a Megatron Kreon without him having an energon sword for a hand, so that's nice.
Mildly peeved that I picked up a Sentinel set for the Soundwave Kreon and now it's being released like this, but considering I got it on clearance for $20, I'm not that angry over it.

That's true. I also hope they release that Hound kreon they showed at a convention some time ago but never released.

Just was at Khols today and they had the 5 packs for just under $5 each.
O.Supreme
Thanks for the tip. My local Kohl's had the add displayed but no product (only HALO Megablocks). But they said they were getting another truckload in today. I'm checking again on my way home.
