Kre-o Transformers (Lego Like Toy)
Kre-O Transformers - 2 in 1 building sets
Are you looking for Kre-O Transformers? Some people think they are Lego Transformers but they are in fact made by Hasbro. Each set allows you to build a transformer in its robot form and then transform it into its vehicle form. The sets also include small KREON figures to play with.
It's just a brilliant idea to have a building set that you can transform in this way. Many Lego sets just get built once. But Kre-O transformers will be built many times as kids want to switch between the robot and the vehicle form.
The Kre-O Transformer are available for the popular autobots (good guys) and decepticons (bad guys) from Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon. You'll find Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream and more.
KRE-O Transformers - BUMBLEBEE
We'll start with Kre-O Bumblebee because he's my younger son's favorite. He loves the color yellow.
Kre-O Bumblebee includes 355 KRE-O construction pieces and 3 KREON figures: RED ALERT and BUMBLEBEE (pictured) plus a driver. Two KREON figures can fit into the Bumblebee vehicle.
You can build either the Bumblebee Robot or the Vehicle and then disassemble and make the other one. Note that you do have to take the model apart to make the other one - you can't transform from one to the other. I think this is good as it means kids will take the time to make the models over and over.
I was a bit skeptical about these sets initially. We haven't had much success with other Lego-like toys, but the reviews are very good. Hasbro have clearly done their homework.
This set should take around an hour to assemble into one of the models, possibly longer at first attempt and obviously this will depend on the experience of the builder.

But not perfect.
KRE-O Transformers - OPTIMUS WITH TWIN CYCLES
Optimus Prime is the autobot leader and the Kre-O Optimus Prime is the most impressive set in the range. It's a 3 in 1 set that can be made as a robot, a semi-hauler truck, or as a battle station.
The set includes 542 KRE-O blocks, 5 KREON figures (SKYWARP, BLUESTREAK, OPTIMUS PRIME, 2 x
Stunt Drivers), 2 motorcycles for the KREONS, orange traffic cones and decorative decals.
Again this set gets good review on quality - the bricks and models stay together well. A few reviewers note that this set would be very challenging for the average 8 year old so unless you have a future engineer or are willing to help out with the building then it's better for older kids. This does mean that older kids will get plenty from the set.
A time estimate for disassembling one model and assembling the other is around 2 hours.

Not Lego Transformers!
Easy mistake to make.
KRE-O Transformers - MEGATRON SET
MEGATRON is the leader of the evil decepticons. KRE-O Megatron has 310 pieces to build the Megatron robot or truck.
You also get 4 KREON figures: MEGATRON, SHOCKWAVE, a Specialist and a Police Officer. Two of the figures can fit in the cab of the Megatron truck.

KRE-O Transformers - STARSCREAM
Starscream is another decepticon bad guy. Kre-O Starscream has 316 KRE-O construction pieces that can be used to make him in his robot or Jet Fighter forms.
You also get two KREON figures: STARSCREAM and a Pilot. You can fit a figure into the cockpit of the Jet Fighter.
