The Kre-O Transformers line might be on the backburner right now, with no new releases planned, but for Kre-O collectors, we can report what might possibly be the next best thing. The Kre-O Microchangers Wave 1 and 2 have been reissued, and with the new issue comes a host of alterations to the base figures. These alterations include changes to the moldings of the parts, along with changes to the tampographed decos.
The new issue of the Microchangers, found in Family Dollar and Dollar General, use the new 2015 Kreon body style, which is completely different to the body used on the original release of these figures. Changers include featuring raised hands like a Lego Minifigure, shorter height, flat arm ends, shorter arms, shorter legs, and maybe even smaller heads. In other words, the figures seem slightly smaller overall.
If you missed these guys originally, this will be a great way to pick them up. If you’re a completest, this will probably be a nightmare – since none of the new blind bags have ways to identify the contents.
