Today we have Megatron leader of the Decpticons. This Kreon was part of an KRE-O Ultimate Kreon Collection ( A46417 ) of Generation one minifigures.
Welcome back to Robot Tober. Last year I challenge myself to do a post a day for October. I decided to continue the challenge. The theme for the month is Robots. Each day I plan to post a pic of a robot, mech, or power suit action figure.
Today we have Optimus Prime Kreon. This Kreon was part of an Ultimate Kreon Collection ( A46417 ) of Generation one minifigures.
Target finally carries the Minion surprise blonds bags. In fact there are on sale this week. You can also get one free if you purchase the Despicable me dvds.
Walgreen has the KRE-O micro changer Transformer Kreons for $1.99 each if you have the Walgreen’s loyalty card.
It’s saturday so today might be the last day for both sales.
KRE-O now has Dungeon and Dragon building sets and mini figs. The Kreons are sold on blister cards and not in blind bags with a small vignette for the character. The KRE-O site list army building packs for $2.49. I did not see these in store. What I did see were the Kreon sets and some of the larger sets.
I picked up a Drizzt set because it’s Drizzt! He comes with his scimitars, a bow, and a tree. The figure has detail on his torso and legs. The elf ears are molded with the hair pieces. The cloak has three tabs with neck holes. I like the way it makes the cloak drape over his shoulders. There are two display base included as well a typical KRE-O block and a flat round base. I prefer the round one but guess they included the block for constancy with other Kreons. There’s also a card with character stats. This sets was $3.99 for 22 pieces.
I will look for the army builder bags and may get some if I see any interesting minis. The KRE-O page won’t let me zoom in to see what all figures are available. It looks like they have the basic character classes and some monsters. KRE-O blind bags are usually coded with numbers so you can tell what character you are getting. Until the list is published online, avoid duplicates by looking for numbers on the bags and making sure you don’t get duplicate ones.
Look for them at places that carry KRE-O sets. I tried the where to buy feature but think it just list where Hasbro stuff is sold. Every store listed said call store foe availability.
See sets and figures at Dungeon & Dragons KRE-O.
So do you plan on adding any of these to your collection?
Today’s toy is the Bender of Futurama. I never saw much Futurama merchandise. This is an unopened pack of metal figures.
Today toy is the Kreon version of Sunstorm. He’s from the preview KRE-O Micro changers series. The Micro changers let you build either the robot or vehicle version of the characters.
Yesterday’s Robot was Generation 1 Huffer. Today toy is the Kreon version of Huffer. He’s from the series three KRE-O Micro changers. The Micro changers let you build either the robot or vehicle version of the characters. I like the grimace on his face. The torso paint is better than the Prowl Kreon. When the Micro changers were released I said I liked the parts but wanted more painting details. Huffer has more details and I still love the helmets.
Both Figures together for comparison , 1984 and 2013 versions of Huffer.
Today’s Robot is an imaginex Robot Police figure. This is my son’s toy. The arms move up and down and the turbines spin if you push a button on top.
The city placed a Speed Calming device in my Neighbor hood. It is a movable radar with a speed display. As you approach, it shows you how fast you are driving. I knew when I saw it, Prowl would be the perfect robot to stop speeders. The Prowl Kreon was part of the KRE-O Transformers Prowl set (30690).
