That ad was absolutely FANTASTIC!!!! Now I really have to buy Starscream!! D'oh, Megs too, so he can be smashed! Bee thinks he's the fastest muscle car...hee hee.

Loved a relaxed Prime in the end, celebrating his win with a trophy!!

Bumblebee and Megatron were racing, Starscream tried to squish Bumblebee with a rock, but BB stopped, leaving Megatron to be squished instead. Bumblebee went on to cross the finish line, only to find Optimus had already won and was kicking back while they were dicking around.

Oh ok, I didn't know who BB was racing (I thought it was Prime) and I didn't get how Optimus got the trophy. Thanks.

THAT, was fantastic...IMHO, That is exactly the kind of marketing they need to saturate with. that makes even ME wanna buy those Kreos

They'd better make more of these shorts. It's first-class advertising.

I love the Ker-O advertising, it's inspired! This is my favourite of them so far... The ending had me cracking up!
ediblesteak
that's adorable
Paradigm-Shift Prime
Too bad you can't actually race several of them because of stupid wheel design...
Chris McFeely
The Kre-O ads have been the best bit of Transformers marketing in years.
Gilgamesh
So creative. These are great!
Ceasar121
What's sad is that that commerical gave Starscream more character in 1:45 seconds than he had in 3 movies.

I can't lie, that commerical made me interested to get some of these, when I was a kid legos and Transformers were my favorite toys, and now we have legos that ARE Transformers?! Pretty awesome.

Your signature killed me! Everytime I LOL it's just a short, normal laugh, but when I saw your siggy, I've bursted outloud, and heartily laughed!!!



Good job.


P.S.: I love the Kreo's commercials. LEGO should have jumped on this. Their loss.
Ironhidebot
Wow, that ad was really well done! I like the sets they use for the race...this makes me want to get more sets
Feralstorm
That was fun. Wish they'd adapt these shorts into regular TV commercials, but trimming-to-size and advertising copy would probably rob them of all their charm.
Dolza_Khyron
damn, starscream totally did that on purpose!
Infosaur
I still have no desire to buy Kre-0s but these have to be the funniest, coolest TF commercials ever.
SMOG
Wow, nicely done. Cute, quirky and funny advertising that seems like someone actually put a bit of originality and effort into it. Nicely done Hasbro.

Of course, the ad sort of highlights what I consider to be the main "fault" of the Kreo transformers line, being that any time you want to transform your character between modes, you have to totally disassemble and then rebuild them. Hasbro kind of dropped the ball on that one...

GENIUS!! I love how Bee tiptoes thru Megatron's remains. Absolute instant classic piece.
Torque
Fantastic
Rayzilla Prime
Lol at Optimus at the end. LIKE A BOSS. :
Snark
Love the ads, love the toys.

OR you buy TWO of your faves, one for bot mode, one for alt mode. I've noticed some folks have done that--I know I saw the large Optimus and some of the smaller guys in the toy forum pics.

He tends to succeed more when he isn't trying.

I've seen at least one on TV. I think the one showing off at the stoplight.

I'd hardly call it a fault. BTR was like that, and they sucked.
TFW10
That was too funny.

I don't know what was the funniest; bumble bee tip toeing over megatron, starscream holding his head because the idea didn't work, or optimus in the lawn chair with the trophy.

It would be irony if season 2 would have a similar scene in prime.
HeroicC300
Again, the very silly ads prove to be entertaining. 'Tis nice to see that Whimsy has not left Transformers.
Eric
Poor Megs.
Gilgamesh
Oh, it also reminded me of the great car rally! Needs more smilin' Optimus though.
AshleyCuadra
man its so funny at the end

Kind of defeats the purpose, I guess. I mean, if it feels like you should be buying TWO of the same toy, because its gimmick (transforming) is too awkward and time-consuming, then maybe that's an indication that the gimmick isn't handled very well.

But I'm not comparing them to BTR. I'm just saying that there's no reason why brick transformers should have to suck and/or not transform. It's just a sad truth that the paid designers for these types of sets never seem to come up with as impressive results as one sees on websites that showcase the work of brick-art hobbyists (in particularly those who specialize in 'mecha' creations).

Frankly, most of the Kreo sets don't look all that impressive in terms of their robot OR their vehicle builds. That would be forgivable if there was a compromise due to allowing for a transformation... but since you have to disassemble and rebuild these completely every time you want to switch between modes, I'm pretty unimpressed.

Still... nice ads.

And why would I need to go with Kre-O anyway? If I've got a 30 year collection of Legos amassed, I could probably build anything I want.

*time to put on my cranky old man hat*

(speaking of which as much as I admire the increadibly overpriced Licenced Star Wars Lego sets, when I was a boy, the whole point was to make our OWN ships out of Legos and insert them into the SW Universe. I tell you, that Skywalker kid would have never gotten near the Death Star without the assistance of me and my friends Foxbat squadron!)
KEM39
That was hilarious. When are they coming out with an Elita-One Kre-O set, most notably as the Jem Rockin' Roadster?

Anyway, they need a Jem-themed Kre-O set!

Kenny :-)
Seripa
LOL!! hahaha I love it!!
specially Optimus in the end, now I want to buy those kre-os x3
