Default G.I. Kre-O, Kre-O, MegaBloks CoD and LEGO discussions

I assume everyone's seen the teaser announcement?

I don't know anything about Kre-O, but are the figures compatible with the Lego ones? Because if they are....:




or this erector set thing:

News to me. Cool!

Don't they have compatible Halo figures, too? Could make for some cool stuff.

Megablocks does Halo. Hasbro does Kre-O, so these will be "compatible" with Transformer ones, I guess.

You're not missing much, Obi - it's just the cover to the first GI Joe issue from Marvel drawn with Kre-O style figures.

Yup. Mega Bloks makes those. They also do some Marvel sets. And used to do some Pirates of the Caribbean sets and TMNT sets.

Though LEGO does Marvel, DC, Now does Pirates of the Caribbean, Spongebob, Cars, Toy Story and I think they're going to be making some TMNT soon as well, as it seems they have the Nickelodeon rights.

There's always this debate of who makes the better minifigs. I'll always stand by LEGO, but what do you guys think?

I think Lego wins on shear breadth of subject matter.

Define failing. Does it have to last forever to be a success, or can it have a good run and put out a few dozen sets and still be a success. Or if it runs for two or three years but ends, is it considered a flop?

I'd rather they make some cool sets for a couple of years and quit while they are ahead. I don't want or need them to run it into the ground. I don't think it will be something they're still making 10 years from now, but I still think they will make it successful enough to be worth the time and effort.

I need something new to collect like a hole in the head, but I'll likely be all over these. I like the TF ones ok, but I mostly like the Kreons and couldn't care less about the actual building block sets. With Kre-Joes, I think I'll like the vehicles as much as the little characters.

Doesn't sell well and ends up on clearance or Ross.

You could include the 25th line in this definition, then.

By this definition, Kreo transformers were a flop too, yet they came out with a bunch of new sets and are expanding into other properties. Doesn't sound like H is THAT disappointed...

After making Star Wars figures that don't bend at the knees and selling them for ten dollars, I'd say they don't care about anything anymore so long as they have money. I mean they are allowing Hollywood to make a Hungry Hungry Hippos movie. Excuse me for being a little cynical.

Of course they're interested in making money. And the way to tell them the SW figures sucked was to not buy them. You'd think that battleship would have taught them that HHH wasn't the best movie idea... But all of that has little to do with whether or not the kre-joes will be successful. If they're cool and we buy them, and they make more... I suppose that's a success, right?

I bought every TF Kreo set my kids have on clearance at WM. But they're making more of them, so it's not a flop, right? All I'm saying is that not everything has to sell like a Furby circa '98 to avoid being a failure.

I don't think Hasbro risks anything by licensing HHH for a movie. They don't put any money into the production costs, so if Paramount or Fox or whoever the fuck had the bright idea wants to do it, so be it. It's their money to throw up a wild hog's ass.

Will it tank faster that C. Thomas Howell's carreer? Probably, but there may be the off chance that it becomes a mild family hit.
