Transformers: Age of Extinction Toys R Us Exclusive Kre-O Scorn Street Chase

Scorn

Scorn looks really awesome, but unfortunately, he has one major flaw.  His knee joint is a simple clip on, no ball and socket.  The result is that you can’t get him to stand up with his knees bent.  You have to keep them straight.  It’s a really obvious problem, and I can’t imagine how this was screwed up.  Other than that though, he’s awesome.  I especially like the dinosaur heads which are not built, but come painted and with movable jaws.  All the Dinobots also include “Dino Force Technology”.  This is a fancy was of saying that Dinobot mouths and some feet include a magnet and some Kreons have a piece of metal on their back.

Sign

It’s a Chinese Sign.  No, I don’t get it either.

Kreons

Kreon Crosshairs is pretty cool.  He’s got his goggles, which we know from recent trailer, he actually wears in battle.  Also included are a couple of Vehicons.  It’s really kind of crappy how many Vehicons are in these sets.  There are so many characters they could do, and it’s not like Kreons require a lot of engineering and design.

Overall: It’s the only way to get Crosshairs, so I can’t really not recommend it, I just wish Scorn’s knee joints were properly designed.

Thanks for reading!
