Kre-O impressions?

Recommended Posts

i was looking at the Kre-O figures on TRU.com and was wondering if anyone else has already picked these figures up? What do you guys think? i'm wanting to get Prime and the Autobot cars. Also, why does Sideswipe and Bumblebee both come with Red Alert Kreon's?

I was initially crazy about them, but then I thought about how lousy it was that they did not transform. The robot modes look nice and the alt-modes look nice; a kind of "what if you mixed G1 and Bayformers?" But, they still don't transform. Fans like Alan Yap have shown that one can make transformable Transformers out of Legos. Knowing that just makes Kre-O disappointing. So I won't buy any Kre-O toys.

I was disappointed to find they didnt transform. I thought they would at least break down a bit into pieces to transform. But the fact that you have to take the thing completely apart to rebuild it kind of sucks. They still look fun though, and I want the Kreons. All of them!

They look neat I will give them that, however, with the non transforming and the fact that these seem like a wasted vein for money where so many other better, Real TF's(Third party, Re-issues, ETC.) are coming, gotta say no with a vengeance. :tdown

I grabbed Prime and Bumblebee for my son, cause he's a lego nut, but they're okay at best. Especially, when you see the transforming stuff people have already done with Legos:

But obviously, the big selling point are the little Kreons. =)

my god.. what is with people and transforming.. jesus. whenever i put these together.. i think to myself.. wow it must've been difficult to use most of the pieces in both modes and still have them look half decent..

 

plus. what the hell is the point of having lego transformers.. if all you have to do is build one mode.. and that's it. these are fun because you can build one mode, then break it down and build the other. if you just want a transformer.. then get one of the main line figures.. wouldn't that make more sense..

 

anyways, i've picked up the megatron and the large bumblebee. they're both great. but i like bumblebee more. his robot mode looks awesome in person.

Well, I would think most of us here buy our plasti-crack because it transforms w/o having to part them out(call me silly on that..). I've had my run with lego's and still think they are very neat, however, speaking for myself, if I want parts formers or lego-formers, I'll buy them or build them. If the kids like them, so be it. I just think they are a money sink IMO.

i think i'm going to just pick up Prime for now since he is my favorite character. I do want Jazz and Prowl but i'll wait for now and see if i can find them on sale in the future...or get them for my birthday. My GF is already bugging me to stop buying stuff so she can buy something i want for me.
