    I started collecting these based on a single character but I really like them. It's prompted an interest in possibly collecting these little guys. Only have 1 base so I had to improvise. Here's what I have:

    Bought multiples because I plan to repaint them at some point. If anyone has any tips, please share because I'm new to customizing.

    Awesome Prime!

    I have a bunch of Customs in the works (even experimenting with paint!) and a bunch of unopened stuff, but here is how the shelves look now:

    You got some great stuff in there. I really dig that Skylynx


    Thanks Boltax. The Kreo version lost a little weight since his Energon days LOL. Let me know if you need a parts breakdown.

    Looking at the picture made me realize his repurposed-ramjet-helmet-face fell off. I fixed it. There are a bunch of photos of him if you go back in this thread a ways.

    Threw them up in my custom kreon thread too.

    I checked it out in your custom thread. It looks really good, much better with ramjets helmet. Great job.

    Another way to get Rumble and Frenzy, plus our first Ravage.

    In lieu of microchangers, they seem to be doing some crazy ass Kreons of Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream, Shockwave, and either Ratchet or Jetfire.

    I'm sure the general consensus will be "WHY?", but I can't wait to own Bank Robber Bumblebee and Seinfeld Puffy Shirt Starscream.


    That looks sweet.

    That Soundwave battlechanger:jawdropper:  also, the rest of them. I hated them when I first saw them, and I won't buy many of them, but one or two will definitely find their way onto my shelf...

    I see Laserbeak on Soundwave's chest. And Optimus has a new maskless helmet. I may start collecting Kre-O again.
