    This review is from: KRE-O Transformers – BUMBLEBEE (Toy)

    I’ve been collecting Legp’s since I was five years old and after about thirty years, I have seen a lot of changes and improvements. I’ve also had Transformers toys as a child and enjoyed them a great deal. Now we have KRE-O Transformers and frankly, this is a neat combination of the two. Although KRE-O is not LEGO, they can be used with them. The KRE-O pieces on my figure seem to lock together a little bit tighter than with LEGOs but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. To help separate the bricks, LEGO has a brick separator that you can buy at their sight that will help tear your KRE-Os and LEGOs apart.

    The Good:

    1. The toy is nicely packaged and is in plastic bags inside the box like LEGOs are.

    2. The Instructions are well done and for the most part, easy to understand. There are a couple spots that are not as well illustrated as it could have been, but can still be figured out.

    3. The pieces feel pretty good in hand. The quality is good.

    4. The pieces hold together well.

    5. The robot is very impressive and satisfying to build.

    6. The little “Kreons” are awesome.

    7. The robot is good articulation and stands very well.

    The Bad:

    1. The vehicle mode is not all that impressive.

    2. I can’t help but feel that LEGO would have done a better job with more sophisticated pieces at their disposal.

    Despite its few flaws, this is a very fun building toy. Expect about an hour to build either car or robot. Some may complain that it does not transform. I am glad it doesn’t because the figure is a lot sturdier this way. If you want a transforming toy, buy a regular Transformer. This is specifically a building set and it delievers. Not all KRE-O sets are good, but this one is definitely one the better ones to say the least. This particular set gives you a rather tall robot which I like. Even though I mentioned that LEGO would have probably done a better job in designing these, this is still a very nice set. The small figures included are Bumblebee, Red Alert, and a regular KRE-O figure. These are also very nicely made and have slightly better articulation than the LEGO minifigures do. I consider this toy to be educational as I also do with LEGOs because it teaches children to think, be creative, follow instructions, and get a sense of how things go together. It also gives children a great feeling of accomplishment once the toy is assembled.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    This review comes from my adult friend who is a longtime building block and Transformer fanatic, and he is raising his children to be the same. Understand that some of the review, such as build time lengths listed, may need to be adjusted for younger ages, especially 7-year olds.

    Packaging
    =========
    The box shows the product in both build modes on the front and back, but the images seem to be computer generated. LEGO boxes show actual photos of the product. Also the included KREONS (figures) are shown clearly both the front and back. The box does clearly state that the kit is a “2in1″ build which means that even though it is a Transformer it does not unfortunately transform. The box, which can serve as a storage container, does have a cardboard carrying handle. Neither the handle nor the box, however, seem like they can take much abuse. Opening the box is very easy, cut two pieces of tape and it opens right up. I was presented with four bags of blocks, three bags of figures, two decal sheets (only one is used), and a hefty instruction book. Oddly enough, the manual was bent (but not creased) because it wasn’t placed lengthwise in the box where it would have clearly had enough room.

    Assembly
    ========
    Figures are in four pieces head, helmet, body, and legs. Very easy to assemble.

    I built the robot first and it took about an hour. Fairly straight forward using the instructions. Only a few minor gripes: several small pieces were stuck in other pieces and hard to get out, the shading on some the images made it difficult to see the orientation, and there were a few steps that would have been a lot easier working if the manual showed the bottom of the pieces for these cases.

    In order to build the car I had to disassemble robot which took about 10 minutes. The car took also took about hour to build. The car was also a straight forward build using the instructions.

    Quality
    =======
    For the figures, the limbs are on a ball like MEGABLOCKS figures so the limbs have a good range of motions. The hands turn in circles and the hips turn. On two of the three figures the legs did not have enough clearance so they would get stuck in position. One nice feature: the legs have a hole on the side where accessories can be attached.

    The robot was surprisingly solid and could easily stand on its own. The range of motions on the legs was very good, although there was a piece at the bottom of the torso that would constantly fall off because of the pressure from the legs. The range of motions on the arms was ok. The elbow joint on the arm was at a weird angle so the arms did not move up down, they move out to the side. The instructions clearly show the arms being straight down on side of the figure. But because of the wheels and design of the arms there is no way to get the arms straight down on the side.

    As for the car mode, very solid. The doors open and the missile launcher moves up and down. The wheels are hard plastic instead of rubber and two of the wheel hubs were too tight for the wheels.

    Overall brick quality is good, fit together well, and are easy to separate. The bricks work well with LEGO with no notable difference. Because this is a “2in1″ set you will end up with extra pieces that are used by the other build. I am used to building a set and then displaying it, knowing that all the needed pieces are in the model. For this set you will have to store the extra pieces somewhere.

    Price
    =====
    With a piece count of 335 the price is approx. 25% cheaper than a comparable basic LEGO set and 20% more expensive than a comparable basic MEGABLOCKS set. Hasbro is likely saving costs here in part because they own the rights to Transformers so they don’t need to pay a third party.

    Product Support
    ===============
    LEGO is legendary in with there support and very friendly missing piece policy, so how does Hasbro compare?
    I called Hasbro support to find out. I got through quickly and the representative was very friendly. For a missing part, if there was indeed one, the representative offered to send me a prepaid label to ship the product back and they would send a replacement. This solution works if the original set was an anomaly, but if manufacturing process was wrong all the sets could be missing the piece. The representative did say that because the product is so new they do not have a parts list yet, so there is hope.

    Recommendation
    ==============
    For any child that loves robots and construction sets this is a must buy. If you are a construction set collector, most pieces were standard but there was couple specialize pieces for the joints that make robot building much easier. With know-how and extra pieces, you can add pop-up missile racks, giant cannons, wings . . . As a Transformer toy lover and a LEGO lover this set seems…

    Kre-o Bumblebee — Frustrating for all ages, April 7, 2012
    By

    = Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
    This review is from: KRE-O Transformers – BUMBLEBEE (Toy)

    Kre-o is incredibly frustrating for all ages. Here are my main concerns:

    1. The Kre-o Bumblebee — both robot and car — fall apart over and over again (even as you build them) because the pieces aren’t connected firmly on both sides. When it is picked up it will fall apart because the section touched will totter (like a see saw). HUGE frustration as it’s being built and as it’s being played with.

    2. Many times you need to place a Kre-o flat brick on top of another flat brick that is the exact same size and colour. Why not have a standard height brick instead of two flat ones on top of each other?

    3. The instructions are unclear. There should be arrows with each picture so you don’t have to try to figure out where the new piece was placed by comparing the picture to the one before it. It’s like a “Find the Differences” challenge.

    The difficulty level of this toy is stated as 4/5. I’m okay with that, but when I spend all that time building something I want it to stay in tact and certainly want my son to be able to play with it! This would work as a decoration on a shelf so long as no one ever touches it.

    After it was built my son set it aside and went to play with his Lego — including a helicopter he constructed on his own that stays in one piece while he plays with it.
