More Transformers toy goodness coming to you now! Hasbro has sent us official images of the not-cancelled-after-all Kre-O Transformers series. These Age of Extinction Kre-Os are now moving in a different direction to the earlier Kre-O sets and are focusing primarily on Kreons – the build sets, for example, consist of Kreons with buildable Dinobots or smaller bases, with the Lockdown Air Raid set giving us a buildable spacefighter craft that seats a Kreon.
That’s not all though as these new official images include a look at the four new Age of Extinction custom Kreons, the four new Age of Extinction combiners, and the fifth wave of Kreon blindbags – which, while advertised in the files as movie sets, are very much still Generation 1 inspired and include Kreon minifigures of the likes of Jetfire, Mindwipe, Nightbeat, Dead End and Highbrow!
The full listing of what we have for you here is as follows:
Kre-O Build Sets – Cell Block Breakout, Dinobot Hauler, Dinobot Charge, Galvatron Factory Battle, Lockdown Air Raid, Grimlock Street Attack, and Street Chase
