SDCC Exclusive Kre-O Reveal
Wow, this was a surprise! If you thought Kre-O was dead, you’ve got another think coming, in the form of Slaughter’s Marauders vs Iron Grenadiers at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. I’m not only very surprised, but also very impressed. Hasbro really knows how to pull out all the stops when it comes to the presentation of their SDCC exclusives. This set looks to be one that will please the retro fans as well as the brick fans. I’m digging the references to classic packaging as well as the throwback VHS slipcase look. It will be interesting to see if this set makes it to online sales on Hasbrotoyshop next month.
By the way, if anyone’s going to SDCC this year and wants to help a Joe Bro out, drop me a line. I’d love to work out a hookup for this year’s Joe items. I’m not begging, just asking. 🙂
Here are the particulars:
