    Browsing kreos on bbts and saw the takara tomy aoe wave 1,2 set and I was wondering besides brig the Japanese version is there any other reason why you'd buy them

    Thanks! Have no printer so I can't do the chest decal for Overlord, and I still have to paint a helmet for Starsaber, but they're coming along :)

    TBH I initially didn't want to want the Class of '84 set last year, as I owned pretty much all the other characters in one Kreon form or another. And had I gotten my hands on that Custom Kreon G1 Hound I would've called it a day. So here I am...

    Even with the small tweaks, felt I got suckered in doing a lot of double-dipping two years in a row (but still love it). Not so bad on the '85 set this year since we got a bunch that never saw a release ie. Omega Supreme, Astrotrain, Dinobots-not-named-Grimlock...

    I was playing with my custom Kreons, specfically I wanted to give Galvatron some big upgrade legs, using only the parts in the set.

    Laughs.. very interesting for the many who missed out. Though getting them all may pose a frustrating problem and a lot of searching .
    When I first heard this news I had thought maybe Drift and Blitzing may have been released.

    Nice. I never noticed it before, but you're right--they do look a lot like Oreo-bot!

    Thank you! :D 

    Custom Junkheap from Age of Extinction. Well, 1/3 of him.
    Also made the other two (older pic, obviously since Junkheap Yellow's got a different helmet):

    I've seen a bunch on eBay ( battle changers and rid sets for rather good prices) so if I can't find them at tj maxx or other stores like that then I'll probably go to ol faithful

    Funny enough, I didn't really have many until the recent findings at TJ Maxx and Marshalls. Now I find myself wanting even more than I've found so far.

    Hey there, everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster.

    I didn't give Kre-O that much thought when I started getting back into Transformers, but after going onto this site and seeing a lot of creations and displays, plus the occasional comic or so, I figured I'd be a part of it.

    Let's start off with a bang with a big base. I had these pictures originally posted to my FA account but I figured I'd post them here. This isn't all the pics though so I may end up making a new thread. Granted, I have gotten many more Kreons after this picture, but it's a start.

    http://d.facdn.net/art/dawnbreaker128/1442386967/1442386967.dawnbreaker128_img_2695.jpg

    What you see is the front gate. I tried to have a bit of a medieval castle/military base kind of feel for it, what with guards manning the posts. The design is very similar to that of the old Fort Legoredo set, except you have Transformers instead of cowboys and not-Union soldiers. In this case, we have three Autotroopers; two on each side, and one, the commander, manning the station that opens the gate. To give the place a bit more atmosphere, I added a couple of brick-built trees at the front and around the sides, and you will see those in upcoming pictures. You can see a couple more Autobots in the back, but we'll cover those later.

    http://d.facdn.net/art/dawnbreaker128/1442387469/1442387469.dawnbreaker128_img_2696.jpg

    On the left side, or right, we see some more foliage nearly against the wall, which is mostly white with some red and blue reaching the bottom. You see seasoned veteran Kup and upscaled Mini-Con Iceberg defending this particular side from any Decepticons that reach the area.

    http://d.facdn.net/art/dawnbreaker128/1442387706/1442387706.dawnbreaker128_img_2697.jpg

    This is my least favorite part of the whole thing, so let's get it out of the way quickly. I ran out of white pieces quickly so I ended up using grey, blue, and red pieces to make up the back wall. There is a gap that was meant to be a secret passageway, but it got butchered thanks to some uncooperative parts or just the overall design. The back of the communications tower is okay, I suppose.

    http://d.facdn.net/art/dawnbreaker128/1442387958/1442387958.dawnbreaker128_img_2698.jpg

    This is the last side of the wall. It too features a few Autobots standing guard at the walls, notably Brawn and Warpath, some of the more gutsy Autobots you would ever find.

    http://d.facdn.net/art/dawnbreaker128/1442388238/1442388238.dawnbreaker128_img_2699.jpg

    A bird's eye view of the whole base. Maybe from Laserbeak or any of the Seekers?

    Starscream: See? We can shoot them from above right from our base!
    Megatron: Pictures don't work that way, you metallic moron!

    The interior is what we will cover next, and maybe you'll find a familiar face or two. We already have Kup, Brawn, Warpath, and...Armada fans will know who Iceberg is, but who else is there?

    Tell me what you think.
