Kre-O Devastator: The Toy Review

Sometimes my wonderful son can be a big pain in the ass so I've found it's good to have a few cheep toys stashed away in case I need to bribe him into doing something. With that in mind I bought the Kre-O Microchanger Devastator for around $5 on closeout at Target. Long story short this thing blows. As far as I can tell it's main feature is to blow apart on any kind of contact. The pieces aren't as hard as legos are so there's a lot of inherent springiness to every piece (especially the small unique shapes). You can't touch the thing in Devastator form without the chest piece popping off. The mini robots look like garbage and the vehicle shapes are even worse.

This hurts because on top of the Transformers license Kre-O has Star Trek and the GI Joe licenses. I really wanted to give them their fair shake but man they are terrible. I guess it was worth the 5 dollars to get my kid to sit still for his haircut but as far as actual playable toys go, stay away.

On a scale of Wheelie to Optimus Prime the Kre-O Microchanger Devastator doesn't even rate. It's like a Gobot, but not even the cool first series Gobots like the terrible modeled after the tv show Gobot.
