    I really don't see how it's a rip-off. It's not like they're making a whole new sub-line of sets like this. It's one set in a sub-line of theirs that started up before Kre-O did. It's also not the first set like this they've ever done. I can't think of any specifically, but I'm pretty sure I've seen similar sets before Kre-O started up.

    Is this a response to the success that Hasbro has supposedly seen with the Kre-O line? Most likely yes, but I don't think that makes it a rip-off.

    Sorry I couldn't think of a good title.

    And it was news on other Transformer sites.

    I don't think this is as much of a Kreo rip-off, as it is a Bulkhead rip-off.

    Seriously, it has elements of every Bulkhead, but it's not.
