I’m really not in the mood to write anything today so here are the pics.
These kinda played me.I thought they were going to look like your normal everyday Kre O figures but was a bit let down after finding out that these guys are half the size.It turns out this line is based on a downloadable app/game called Cityville Invasion.I didn’t know this until after I cracked these suckers open.I tried the game out and it’s surprisingly fun,although I hate idea of having to pay for things like coins and power ups after downloading a game for free.Habro did a great job on the packaging as the shot of Sgt.Drill going up against Zombie soldier was what drew me in.
Much like any other block based figure,these will have to be put together.The head,arms and waist all move while the legs are basically just one stationary piece.
The one accessory that left me puzzled was the motion brick.After doing a little digging,the motion bricks are a surf board of sorts that the figures are placed upon.You’ll only be able to test it out on the motorized playsets that vibrate and cause the figures to move around the board,bringing the set to life!It’s actually pretty cool looking.Check it out on Youtube if you get the chance to.All in all these aren’t that bad and may be worth checking out.
Initially i was going to hook up a real cool background to snap some some extra cool pics of Law and Order dueling it out with Firefly but i wasn’t really feeling it.So i opted for the simple “toy-on-the-shelf” pic and added a couple of Best-Lock military figs to fill out the checkpoint tower.I’m still not crazy about Lego figs but the fact that these are representations of Joe figures that were super popular when i was a kid make these Kre-O sets all the more appealing.Enjoy the pics!
Pretty psyched about this little set.I remember when i first started up this blog,it seemed like everyone was heavily into Lego figures and sets.I never got into them much but always said that if a G.I. Joe LEGO-esque set/figure was ever released that i would quickly jump on that band wagon.I’m not sure how many more ore of these sets i’ll pick up ,but i’m definitely looking into picking up some of the single figures.I got another Ninja post to publish this week but after that i’ll be sure to post some pics of this set assembled.
