Here is our newest episode of our collection videos. We've been going in a three part cycle: Lego Licensed. Lego unlicensed. Non-Lego. This is the second of our non-lego videos. I've never liked K'Nex toys. The models are always so skeletal in appearance. I was pleasantly surprised at how good, (if a little fragile) these figures are. I was thrilled that their hands and feet are compatible with lego studs. I think the K'Nex Mario figures are pretty great, and there is a wide range of characters in the line.
For some reason, the only Next Generation character that Hasbro made in the Kreo Line was Worf. My hopes of getting more in future waves disappeared with the announcement that the Star Trek license is shifting over to Mega Bloks. They are most likely going to make characters in the style of the Halo line. They are cool, but they won't fit in with more blocky figures. So, I ordered a bunch of customs from buygofigure.com to fill out the rest of the Enterprise D bridge crew.
The yellow shirt color is different, but I can live with it. The customs are cool. The shirt collars even have the rank pips on them.
I just acquired an unopened Kreo set from last year's Comic Con. I can't decide if I'm going to open it or not. Who am I kidding? Of course I am! There are 30 figures in the set. I have earlier versions of about 24 of the characters. 6 are new to this set. The only ones that I think were better in their original retail release are Bumblebee and Perceptor.
