Transformers is my all time favorite line of toys, comic books and cartoons. I also liked the movies but let’s not push it. The one thing that we can thank the movie for is the resurgence in interest in the Transformers franchise and that means more Cartoons, comics and toys, so in that vein I certainly appreciate those movies. That and they were fun to watch. Out of the movies comes a new line of Transformers toys called Transformers KRE-O. KRE-O is a link of brick based building toys that are used to create Transformers like Optimus Prime, Megatron, SideSwipe and BumbleBee. Some of the sets have characters with G1 (Generation 1 from the 80’s) like styles and others are from the movie. I received an Optimus Prime set and it was awesome to build.

Each larger KRE-O set comes with little characters called Kreons. The Kreons do look like G1 versions of the Transformers and there are also human figures as well. The Optimus Prime set came with three Transformers and two humans. The three Transformers are Optimus Prime, BlueStreak and SkyWarp. The humans are motorcycle stunt drivers because in this set Optimus has a couple of motorcycles that he hauls around in his trailer.

The style of this Optimus Prime is a cross between the G1 and the movie Optimus Prime. The cab of the truck is more like the movie but the coloring is more like the G1 cartoon but in robot mode Prime looks much more like the movie version of Prime. I do like that the Kreons are G1 though because G1 is my favorite series and that is because I started my collection in 1984 when the Transformers were released in the USA.

Putting together the set was a good experience. I poured out all the bricks and tried to organize them but didn’t and Eva was with me when I built this. She pretended that the Kreons were building Prime and so I’d add a few bricks and then put the piece down so the Kreons would work on Prime too. Prime also came with a set of Kreon sized tools like a drill, wrench, hammer and more. The one thing that I wish was included in the set would be some sort of tool organizing spot inside the trailer. There is no place to put the tools so I had to improvise. I also liked that almost every piece was used when I built the Truck and trailer.

I also took the whole truck and trailer apart and created the Robot. I was impressed with how I was able to use most of the pieces to complete the robot and a N.E.S.T. base of operations. There were a lot of pieces left over but I used them to enhance the base.


The Robot was decent. It stayed together well and was poseable. I’m pretty impressed with the whole KRE-O experience and would love to build more sets.

    The movies were fun… like I say to friends who complain about the story, I say, listen, I don’t go to the Transformers movies for a deep plot. I go to see optimus rip off megatrons head on the IMAX screen! In that regard, they are fun movies!
