    I really hope so. I have them all minus the as of yet released blitzwing and drift. not sure they are even out in Asia yet? I got all mine from Canada some even 50% off minus shockwave and hound I got from Asia.

    I got Shockwave and Hound via Wicked Warrior Toys & Collectables out of Hong Kong. I didn't know they were so limited. I had thought they would be in abundance in Hong Kong.

    Having finally seen an episode of Gobots I can see why they lost out to our Transformers. Still, Crasher's a fun little addition to the Fem-Con team.

    Very nice work on the fembot both of you! Really like it!

    As for the battle changers, hound and shockwave are limited and only avaliable in Hong Kong. Havent heard of any news about triple changer drift and blitzwing yet.

    So it's been a while since I posted in here. I was lurking a bit, though. I was specifically lurking on the discussion about a 'Class of 1986' set. Personally... I wouldn't want another "class of" set. If we're getting more SDCC sets of 30 Kreons I'd like them to be more diverse, or represent a more underrepresented era of Transformers.

    To that end, I've drawn up my idea for a 30-part Kre-o set. My first idea was a "Ladies of Transformers" sets. Clearly one of the most underrepresented aspects of TF in Kre-O is also one of the most underrepresented aspects of TF in general. The ladies.

    I've attached the sketches.

    I've divided the girls into 5 loose categories (just to make it easier to process where they're all from) and ALL of the accessories for the set are alt-mode pieces for other female TFs -- plus a build for the Forge of Solus Prime.

    Boltax, those are some pretty good designs. I found that a Cliffjumper torso makes a passable Road Rage:

    Anyone catch TJ's new Blindpack Blitz video? I've never seen the Kreo series he's opening up, but some of those minifigures are so odd they slide right across into cool - just such eclectic mashups! Rail Baron Soundwave (with hair?!), Samurai 'Megatron', and Ninja Starscream...so odd I almost want to find a few.

    Lots of cool photos of the class of 85 set. Good stuff. Very sad they changed the kreo bodies, though.It will stop me from purchasing any new sets :( 

    In other news, Now that I've moved across the country to sunny CA, I've had a few minutes to work on something thats been brewing in my mind. Obviously I haven't finished Star Saber yet (did I post some pictures of tha?), but I decided to crack on with a concurrent project. Unfortunately the light box was a victim of the move, so I will have to build another one at some point.
