  • Build 4 Kreon figures in robot or vehicle mode
  • Includes 78 pieces

  • Works with major construction brands
  • Includes 78 pieces and instructions

Numbering 78 pieces, the KRE-O Kreon Micro-Changer Combiner Series 01 – Decepticon Bruticus forms miniature robot/vehicle mode versions of Swindle, Onslaught, Vortex and Decepticon Brawl, and can be combined to create Super Warrior Bruticus with a head sculpt reminiscent of the Gen 1 Bruticus. Already an unmanageable threat on their own, the Combaticons combine to form the mighty Bruticus, a Super Warrior who towers over Autobot and Decepticon forces alike. The disembodied sparks of the Combaticons are originally liberated from their prisons on Cybertron, transported to Earth and infused with the ruins of WWII military vehicles, and used to comprised Starscreamâ?TMs Brigade, however the Combaticonsâ?TM mutinous demeanor, combined with Starscreamâ?TMs maladroit leadership ability, quickly undermines the alliance and ultimately places the mighty Bruticus under the command of Megatron. Though hindered by small brain circuits and resultant near-nonexistent intelligence, Bruticus indiscriminately destroys anything in his path.

    This review is from: Kre-O Transformers Micro-Changers Combiners – Construction Devastator Set (Toy)

    When Hasbro first came out with the Transformers Kre-O sets, I was both excited and a little hesitant, because I figured it would be hard to make a Lego robot that would actually “Transform”. In theory, it’s great. In practice…well, having to take apart and re-assemble a figure in order to get it into vehicle mode kind of takes the fun away a little. So I wasn’t a big fan. I DID really like the little mini Kreon figures though, but didn’t think it was worth paying full price for a whole set when all I would want would be the Kreon, which did’t even transform.
    Flash forward to present day, and we now have the Kre-O Micro-Changers, which, even though not perfect (you are left with some extra parts when you go from Robot to Vehicle mode and vice versa), is definitely an improvement over the initial offerings. Having Combiners was just the next logical step.
    The first release Micro-Changers Combiners consist of Devastator, Superion, Bruticus and Predaking, and all four sets are made up of four Micro-Changer figures. Even though I think Bruticus looks the best out of the four, Devastator will always hold a special place in my heart, since he was the first in the old school series, and he was also the only combiner set I had as a kid. If you are familiar with the character, you know that there are actually six Constructicons that combine to form Devastator, so your set is missing Long Haul and Hook (I was lucky enough to find an individual Hook).
    Each mini figure is in a separate bag, so when you initially put them together, you don’t have to go searching for which piece goes with what mini figure. The instructions are your basic Lego type instructions, with detailed pictures showing you how to assemble the figures into their robot mode, their vehicle mode, and finally, how to combine all four into the Mighty Devastator (well, in actuality, your basic 4″ GI Joe figure could probably beat him up).
    If you are familiar with Kre-O figures, you know that there are some slight QC issues when you compare them to Legos. Wrists have stress marks where they are attached to hands, some blocks don’t fit quite as tight as they should while other are a little too tight and other minor issues like that, but that’s really being nitpicky.
    All in all, the four mini figures look pretty good. Good old school florencent green and purple coloring really reminds you of the original Constructicons. And they all transform in a very simplified go-bot style. For the most part, you just ley them flat on their faces (or in one case, his back), add a few items, and you have a vehicle. Actually kind of cool.
    The combination gets a little tricky, since you have to take two of the four figures totally apart in order to form the upper half of Devastator (the body portions of those figures actually forms the torso and the legs end up being the arms). The legs are basically two figures sans their heads. When you do get him formed, he has pretty good articulation, and even though he’s tiny, he actually looks pretty good.
    If you’re really not into the skinny arms and legs, the beauty of it is that they are building blocks. You can add to them if you have other Kre-O sets, or even if you have Lego sets, so you can use your imagination and add to him till you come up with a creation that suites you.
    As far the age listing on the box, Ages 6-12 seems kind of high for something like this. I can totally understand the need for a higher age bracket for some of the other sets, which have thousands of pieces, but for a 76 piece set, I’m figuring a 4 year old, with some help from mom & dad (or an uncle who likes spoiling them) would have a field day with him.
    Great for those who like Legos or Transformers, AWESOME for those who love both! Solid 4.5.

    Cute Little Bruticus, February 17, 2013

    This review is from: Kre-O Transformers Micro-Changers Combiners – Decepticon Bruticus Set (Toy)

    Cute and Bruticus don’t seem like they would belong in the same sentence but with Kre-O they work.

    Bruticus is one of 4 Kre-O Micronchanger Combiners along with Superion, Devastator, and Predaking. Each consists of 4 Kreons that can form individual robots or combine together, finally each robot has an alternate mode.

    One thing you may notice if you are a Transformers fan is that 4 is an odd number for combiners, especially these teams which classically have 5 (or in Devastator’s case 6). However, here it works out nicely, and a fifth member of each team is available via the blind bags from Wave 1.

    Now onto Bruticus himself. The team consists of: Onslaught, Vortex, Brawl, and Swindle leaving Blast Off in the blind bags.

    Onslaught is the leader and becomes the biggest vehicle of the team, though he more closely resembles a semi-truck cab than his classic cannon truck. In combined mode he forms the: head, lower torso, and right arm. A bit weird but they are building blocks after all.

    Next up is Vortex who’s transformation is probably the weakest of the team, you essentially push him over onto his stomach and call it a helicopter. Still, he looks pretty cool. In combined mode he forms the upper torso and left arm.

    Swindle comes next transforming into what looks more or less like a dune buggy. A fun alternate mode and somewhat related to his classic jeep look. In combined mode Swindle becomes Bruticus’ right leg.

    Finally, there is Brawl, he still transforms into a tank and has a funny little smirk on his face. Like Swindle, Brawl forms a leg in this case the left one.

    All in all this is a fun little set to build and rebuild. The closest thing I have to a complaint so far is that his waist keeps popping apart in combined mode but its a minor issue as the parts just slide back together with no issues.

    I guess the fact that you wind up with a bag full of kibble could be seen as negative but even the original Bruticus had that. In fact I think the Fall of Cybertron version is the first version without a bunch of extra parts.
