Default Kreo Microchangers & Combiners

No specific details yet... just two words, and the note that they are "yet to be seen".

Microchangers & Microchangers Combiners, are said to be revealed at SDCC next week, along with their new Star Trek Kreo line.

If these are new concept sets, they aren't likely to be part of the current Second Series (now being released globally), so are probably our first looks at Series 3.

KRE-O TRANSFORMERS KREON MICRO CHANGERS
(Ages 6 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $2.99/Available: Late Summer 2012)

For the first time ever, the KRE-O line launches TRANSFORMERS KREON MICROCHANGERS! Each TRANSFORMERS KREON MICROCHANGERS character features a popular TRANSFORMERS KREON figure robot that can be built and then rebuilt into their alternate mode. For a completely new and never-been-done before building experience, these KREON MICROCHANGERS have 2-in-1 capabilities! KRE-O TRANSFORMERS KREON MICRO CHANGERS launches this fall with a Preview Wave of 6 figures and will introduce additional unique figures next year.

KRE-O TRANSFORMERS KREON MICRO CHANGER COMBINERS Assortment
(Ages 6 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $10.99/Available: Spring 2013)

Taking cues from classic TRANSFORMERS lore, the KREON MICROCHANGERS COMBINERS sets are being introduced for the first time into the world of KRE-O products! Taking the KREON figure multiple builds to the next level, each set contains 4 TRANSFORMERS KREONS robot figures that can be built and then rebuilt into their alternative mode, or combined to form 1 larger super robot! There will be 4 sets available at launch and each will come with approximately 75 pieces. Collect them all, with fan favorite Generation 1 styling and look for more next fall!


These are so bought on the standard KREON form alone

I honestly doubt they will old timer as the first wave shelf warms every major department store and hit clearance prices that retailers would not be proud of

I wonder what the other 2 combiners at launch will be

Devastator
Superion
Defensor
Menasor
Abominus

Do you think Ha$bro got the point that alot of people only want the Kreons? =oP These do look great, but I fear KP is right on the money. Even though they are slowly disappearing at clearance prices, the stores will be quite wary second time round. If they do end up here though, Ha$bro have near guaranteed themselves double sales by many fans wanting the combiner and combinees on display simultaneously.

These look crappy, but in an inexplicably awesome way. Bought on sight.

Well previous waves have kind of sucked. It's really 'half assed' for you to need to rebuild the robot mode into the vehicle mode and despite that, the robot modes often were kinda mediocre. They should of added some transforming aspect and kept parts forming at a minimum once you built the robot mode.

On the other hand, these combiners are really cool and worth buying. They should have released these first to introduce the line.

I usually go nuts over combiners, but I don't know exactly how I feel towards these?
