FamilyMart Exclusive: KRE-O TF Optimus Prime!

10.13.2014 – KRE-O Transformers has been popular recently in the Philippines that most of the sets and micro figures are the ones sold in the country. There have been previous brands too like Dungeons & Dragons, G.I. Joe, Star Trek and Battleship.

But there is no other property that Hasbro ever produced in collaboration with Oxford Toys that definitely quite as interesting as Transformers, which is why the Battleship, Dungeons & Dragons, and Star Trek are currently on clearance…

For Transformers with the exclusive micro figure design is exclusively for KRE-O never seen even produced under Oxford Toys’ on brand.

The popularity of KRE-O Transformers now that a new film was released last July has made it more known in other countries, and with that FamilyMart had released exclusive Micro Figure keychains of Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, Starscream, and Sideswipe which also have a light-up gimmick.

The exclusive collectibles from FamilyMart also released a jumbo micro figure of Optimus Prime that has four USB slots on his chest. This figure stands approximately 7 inches tall (20 CM) as advertised in their TV ads, which was only available in selected store chains in Taiwan in 2012.

Its impressive to know that there’s an jumbo version of a Kreon in Taiwan that was released almost two years ago that will never see it released in FamilyMart stores in the Philippines. If they do bring it here expect it to be sold out and probably be seen re-sold in the secondary market for a premium price point.

Special acknowledgement to Jagnus Design Studio for giving us the preview looks of the jumbo version of the KRE-O TF Optimus Prime USB released exclusively by FamilyMart in Taiwan.
