Ok, so I know that everyone here talks about Lego, and that Megabloc suck (or that is the common perception anyway).
What about Kreo? This is "brickset", not "Legoset"... Kreo are bricks...
Is there any interest in Kreo?
I finished 7181 (UCS TIE Intercepter) today, looks really nice, and figured I needed a change from Star Wars for a few days as I built 7675 (AT-TE) yesterday...
So I opened up my very first Kreo set... I'm about 70% finished with it, not too complex, 335 parts in Bumblebee, overall the quality is much higher than Megabloc, but not quite to Lego standards. They do have more interesting mold designs, such as what appears to be 1x1 flat plate, but is 2 plates tall (don't know how you technically call that one), and a 1x1 round, that is 3 round tall, so you get the same effect if you had stuck 3 1x1 round plates on top of each other.
The instruction book is very good, detailed and high quality printing... My first complaint is that the two models (robot and car) are in the same book, I would prefer them apart, but whatever)... My real complaint is that for the most part, every page has 4 sets of instructions on it. Ok, the one time I take a picture, it has less, I'll take another one later, but most of the time when you have the book open, you have 8 seperate steps looking you in the face.
The build is good so far, I would compare it to a Creator set so far in terms of how sturdy the model is, a few parts need reinforcement, but Creator has that problem as well because it has to build 3 three things.
So, am I going to get run out of town for even allowing this into my home? ;) Does anyone want a review at the end of this? With Kreo coming out with Star Trek soon, maybe it is worth considering adding it to the database, or is that just evil?
*flame away* :)
ive never considered buying them, but i often think about trying to moc an optimus prime...but then i realize i dont have enough spare pieces (especially in blue and red)
I have nothing against kreo but I don't think this is the right site for database additions due to the purist nature of collectors
