    Not sure how many I own, but definitely two lots of each of the waves of Microchangers and two of each of the combiners, plus the custom kreons and a few other ones from the ultimate packs. Hopefully this pack eventually :) 

    Oh yeah, and two packs of last years Botcon ones...

    This is actually pretty cool. I think it's the best of the SDCC exclusives we have seen so far. And a reasonable price too, that really helps.

    The perfect class of 84 would be to remove Arcee, Perceptor, Schrapnel, and Ultra Magnus. And replace them with Reflector (Spectro, Spyglass & Viewfiender) and perhaps

    Bumper (the only 84 toy not to make it in the series) OR Hauler -The Crane Truck from the Pilot episode that didn't transform or have any dialogue, but most fans feel eventually became Grapple

    Cheaper than buying 30 blind-pack TF Kreons.

    That is awesome! :D 

    I may actually look into getting this set, since I love the Kreons. So far this is my favorite SDCC exclusive set for TF. The others are nice, even the Knights of Unicron set for how unique it is, but since this is Kre-O, I feel tempted~

    hmmm. 60 dollars for 30 kreons at sdcc or 50 dollars for 6 kreons at botcon.... botcon really gouges the crap out of us in the pricing.

    The markup probably isn't as steep as it sounds. FunPub only made 1500 sets of their Kreon 6-pack, while Hasbro surely made a lot more of the 30-pack for SDCC, I'd guess somewhere in the 5000-10,000 range. FunPub paid a higher price-per-unit due to the lower production numbers.

    I would love a set too if anyone is going and can pick up more than one. I know this is my first post here. I'm trying to get back into collecting and am trying to start with the Kreo line. I already have a nice collection going and would love to add this to it.

    Please PM me and discuss if you are going and don't mind picking another up.
