    To answer some of your questions.

    All kreons to my knowledge fit inside the bots alt modes. Minus Small bee and small Prime.

    OP and Megs trucks I would say are on scale with each other.

    Can't help you with the third question.

    I picked up Megatron and Optimus . I just finished building Megatron into truck mode and I think it looks great. The Kreons can go inside or clip onto various spots and you can make some cool action scenes. Not too many extra parts, I did like the weapons and accessories for the Kreons , some guns a walkie-talkie and an ammo box. I did have trouble with the various shades of grey parts when using the instruction manual and I am not thrilled about the stickers either but I haven't tried them yet.

    Here are some mods I did to my kre-o sets.

    Bee has no mods. To Prime I just added leftover pieces. Jazz and Megs have a few mods.

    Jazz mod is inspired by another member of the boards. Tried to give him less derpy proportion ( I might buy a second set for additional mods)

    I modded Megs Upper Torso, Back, and the arm proportions. I added a lame hobo shotgun as well.

    seems the torso on these figures are a bit elongated.

    I really like Kre-O Optimus Prime.

    I liked it so much, I made some power-up armor for him.

    So I finally put all the sets together (in Vehicle mode at least) and I have to say I am very pleasantly surprised by how fun and creative these are. Im loving the little Kreons and Im sure Hasbro (if they are smart) will release blind packs of these after wave 2 or 3. Also, I can honestly say that I was not missing a single piece in any of the sets I built. That's pretty good QC IMO

    I bought Jazz and Ratchet and I have to say, it's addicting putting these guys together. I just bought that big Optimus set from another TFW member so I'm really looking forward to putting that one together :bowdown:

    How is everyone finding the distribution for these? I remember hearing July 1 and these things should be everywhere, though I have yet to really find them en masse. I found them only at TRU's up until about a week ago, and then found a couple of Ratchet and SP sets at one Walmart, but only that Walmart. I still have yet to see any at Target. Anyone else experiencing a similar situation?

    So far I have Mirage, Jazz and Bee. I haven't built BB yet, but I really the other two. The mini figs are awesome and I like how you can customize the bot modes if you wish to.

    I've been on the fence about picking Megs up. He looks pretty sweet, but I'm not sure if I'm willing to cough up $30 for him.

    I've yet to find any, and I honestly have no clue where they'd even put them...there's no space in the building blocks aisles.

    Found them at the local Walmart last night. Wasn't there last week. A whole bunch of them piled in the middle of the floor like an island. Can't miss it in the toys section.
