Toy Fair 2013: Hasbro Kre-O Report

By junior - February 9, 2013

Hasbro’s Kre-O series is “building” like never before in 2013!  Check out what’s in store for the building toy versions of Transformers, GI Joe, Star Trek and more this year.

Transformers Kre-O will continue in 2013, under the Beast Hunters banner. We will see a new round of Kreon Micro Changers– these LEGO style minifigures will be blind bagged and there will be 36 to collect.  There will also be MicroChanger Combiners, which combine together.  The Fall will see the release of the Autobot Command Center, a Kreon-scaled Transformers playset.

Star Trek Kre-Os are set to be on shelf 4/29, just in time to support the new film Star Trek Into Darkness. Sets will include the USS Enterprise, a Klingon Bird of Prey (from the new movie) with Uhura, Spock’s Volcano Mission with the Vulcan, Sulu and an exploding volcano, and Transporter Trouble, with Scotty and a Klingon.

A Micro builder ship assortment will include the Klingon D7, Jellyfish, Enterprise and USS Kelvin.

Kirk’s Space Dive set will include the first light-up Kre-O, with the Captain in his space suit with a light-up helmet!

There will also be a wild assortment of Star Trek Kreon minifigures, including multiple genres of the Trek universe– including The Next Generation!

Wave One will include six figures– Captain Nero, Gorn, Grasia, Sprog and a Klingon.

Wave Two will see Khan, Andorian, Borg, Spock, Worf, Ferengi, Salt Vampire and Locutus

GI Joe Kre-O’s will include nine building sets from the movie and a total of 28 Kreons.  They will be available exclusively at Toys R us this Spring.  Wave One is starting to trickle into stores already, and Wave Two of the blind bagged Kreons will include more great new figures, including:
