Kre-O from Hasbro?

Postby Hoboman » Fri Feb 25, 2011 11:14 pm

Did anyone else see this info about Hasbro going into the "Lego Knock-Off" market?

Huh. Maybe there'll be a few unique pieces to make them worthwhile.
Anyone remamber the Built To Rule Transformers? Those were awful :lol:

Yeah, it looks iffy-ish. But definitely a step-up from the built to rule line back in 2003.

Shiver me timber even today.

I doubt it... look at the Transformers set, pretty much every piece is an exact copy of something LEGO has made except for the head. It's not just a rip-off, it's the least creative ripoff I've ever seen barring the made-in-China direct copies. Even Mega Bloks had a couple pieces (well... one piece) worth hanging on to.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

Which? Just curious.

Btw yes, the only parts that make me slightly interested are the heads, as they're quite well-done.

I agree, I can just see a squad of the Mega-Tron mini-figs punching it out with a squad of Vinx troopers. :lol:

One Megabloks piece he might be talking about is the 2x2 plate with studs on both sides...

I don't know, I like the pieces that are like one of these cut in half.

I'd say these don't look too bad, but I still won't be buying any.

Either way, it's still using the classic "compatible with Lego" as a fallback for failure, so they're obviously not too sure about it themselves. Even more reason not to get any.
