    Is he a Micro-Changer or did you just come up with that?

    Some recent TF customs that I posted in my thread.

    -Jet Wing Prime, G1 Outback (using same BP as wave 4 Brawn and my custom Gears), and a spy-type Jazz (dunno what to call him)

    -New seekers: Starscream version, black and orange (Halloweenscream?), and a black and white cookie seeker

    -G1 Treadshot and an upgraded super-Bludgeon

    -Drift (blue windshield didn't show up well due to flash and no red paint), Beast Wars Megatron, and Counterpunch

    For Jazz, perhaps Special Ops Jazz, or Stealth Jazz? Or even Cyber Ninja Jazz.

    These customs are fantastic, especially love the Beast Megatron!

    Yes, I got them at Chula Vista TRU, & more in San Francisco. My full case came from the Philippines, though, and I got the AOE Series 3 Custom Kreons (Dinobots) in Taiwan a few weeks ago.

    Weird Question.

    Has anyone tried to make a bat kreon?
    Not just Ratbat, but Sonar and Mutant Soundwave.

    Want to try and do the Toxitron combiner mentioned in the Allspark Almanac II.

    Disney is leaving Mattel for Hasbro. I'm wondering what, if anything, this could mean for Kreo. On the surface, it seems like Hasbro will have a TON of new working capital. However, Disney blocks (Princesses, Cars, Marvel) are made by Lego. If part of the deal is for Hasbro to do all Disney blocks, Kreo would become HUGE, and we can have new sets/Kreons for years to come. The flip side is that Disney says no, we shouldn't be having building blocks competing other than within product lines, and the plug gets pulled on Kreo. Thoughts?

    I was thinking something similar when I read that article too but then I started thinking that Lego really doesn't have anything to do with Mattel. I would think that Disney/Marvel would rather go with Lego then Kre-o for their brick products due to the power house that Lego is. I'm starting to think that the same thing happened with the Kre-o Jurassic Park line, not enough juice to hold the licence. My guess is we wont see anything other licences from the Kre-o lines except for Transformers and GI Joe.

    Ugh...this TRU BOGO40% off sale is killing me. Usually, BOGO40% off is like a 20% off sale...but without any micro-changers or combiner sets at my TRU, it doesn't pan out. Why? Because almost every other set at my store has a staggered price scheme...so let's say I go with the scorn ($15) and slug ($12) sets...I save less than six bucks on slug. It's something, but it doesn't even add up to 20% off. I could have used it on custom sets...but those translucent helmets kill me.

    building block toys actually fall under diffrent agreements then action figures and dolls so mattel probably had the action figure licenses but not the building blocks which lego has.

    As for the price staggering if u want buy a kreo dnd blind pack and use the 3 dollar off manufacture coupon u get spare parts and 1.50 extra off. As long as the set is 15bucks

    I was going to experiment with torso decals. Anyone know what size they shoukd be. 1.55cm x 1.3cm seems a bit too small.
