Transformers Kre-O Toys R Us Exclusive Ironhide w/G2 Devastator Kreon
After all the 2012 Transformers Kreo sets came out, Toys R us got an exclusive version of Devastator. It included a building set Ironhide and instead of the green G1 Devastator Kreon, it included a yellow G2 Devastator Kreon.

I really don’t know what to say about this. Though it does make me wonder something. In the G1 cartoon, when Spike went to Cybertron, what did he use for a toilet? On second thought, I don’t want to know.

While it is a nice repaint, nothing really special here.
Ironhide Building Set
Ironhide has a great head sculpt. In robot mode he is pretty well proportioned, though his arms are a bit long. His vehicle mode has a lot in common with the new Transformers Prime Kup (who was originally supposed to be done in red as Ironhide). Very nice, but since I had already bought three Devastators, having to buy two more really sucked.
I’ve seen very little of the 2012 Kre-O on the shelves, as opposed to 2011 when the shelves were packed until Christmas when they sold. Since they first came out, I don’t think I’ve been in a single store that has had all of this year’s sets in stock. I’m thinking these newer sets have a lower production run, or were at least less was ordered. TRU has had them at buy one get one free for a while. I keep expecting to hear Kre-O is canceled, but it looks like they are sticking with it. A teaser image was seen online for GI Joe A Real American Hero Kre-O. These should be seen at NYCC.
