That is 100% pure JaAm
Shouldn’t he have wheels on his legs?
Hot Shot doesn’t have wheels on his legs, he has wheels in his legs.
Now, Sideswipe should probably have wheels on his legs, but Hasbro decided he shouldn’t, for whatever reason.
I guess ideally he’d need wheels sticking out his back at the height of his shoulder. Probably using the ‘flak jacket’ piece like the Kreo Microchanger do and some clever use of parts to hang the wheels there.
Oh my god! That Kreon Hot Shot is actually completely awesome! The face he chose when putting the figure together has a fantastic “wide eyed” expression, too. Freakin’ sweet!
Objection! That’s clearly a LEGO helmet.
…wait, why am I objecting?
I like how none of the other Kreautobots seem happy to see him.
I dunno, Tracks seems happy.
Because he has evil plans, apparently, but he seems happy.
In other news, how crazy is it that we have a Spinister Kreon before we have a Grimlock? And isn’t the first blind-bag lineup completely insane? (Naturally, since it has a Galvatron.)
And that no name Crankstart who uses Hound’s helmet even though Hound never saw the light of day.
But we DO have a Waspinator and Scorponok, which is just fantastic.
Galvatron is a bit badly designed though, I gave him an alternate transformation (put the wheels on his hands and lay him mostly on his stomach, held up at an angle by the wheels with the canon assembly pegged on the back) that works way better and looks more lean.
I guess this is just the preview line as they call it. They just grabbed whatever pieces they had and figured what to do with some clever repaint. Maybe they didn’t want to annoy fans by making the really popular characters too hard to track down once the line took off?
Crankstart is awesome because he’s a guy who got his first toy in 2010. I like that.
Gotta admit, the KRE-O guys know how to make use of the FULL history of Transformers, unlike the actual Transformers toy. I can’t wait to see what other Micro Changer they’ll come up with in the future! I’m really digging this first wave and fiddlin’ with ‘em and can’t wait to get more.
Agree. It took about a year of Kre-O sitting on the shelves before I realized how awesome it was. It helps, too, that the quality of the plastic is pretty close to Lego. (MegaBloks, by way of comparison, always felt really cheap to me.)
Megabloks minifigures are just plain horrible. At least for the basic kind like they use for the Power Rangers stuff. The concept of blind bag power rangers dude is fun, they even let you army build the mooks, but the executing on those guys? Augh. I got a tiny War Machine from them that isn’t bad though, so that style of figure work. Still the blocks themselves are no match for Kre-O. Kre-O is really the first block brand that I feel is a real match for LEGO.
One thing about Crankstart that is bothersome is how boring and dull his color scheme look. Especially considering the bright colors of his wavemates. The grey parts could have used a more interesting color scheme.
I kinda want to see him recolored as Beachcomber though.
He looks so pleased to exist!
