Have to say, Kreo is really doing justice to the ARAH brand.  The price is pretty damn good for an exclusive as well.  $50 for 12 figures and the Triple T!!!!

Anyone out there still collecting Kreo, or has the piss poor availability in Canada all but killed it for you?  Love how well the Triple T turned out though.

I have everything but the Night Force con set but I can't get excited about this set since they're no news on more upcoming stuff. What's with having pimp daddy Destro in there? Why not IG Destro? I might pick this set up if the price doesn't get jacked up too much. Is it gonna be on the Hasbro site for sale?

I love the packaging. I wish all the vehicles were done this way. That being said, by the time any of us imports this it will probably be well over $100. That puts me out of the running, unfortunately.

I picked this up at sdcc this year, both kreo and 3 3/4 set were still available by shows end.  The 3 3/4 set sucked and the box was waaaay too huge to transport though the packing was nice.  But the Kreo set was nice and compact and had great packaging.

I bought the Gentle Giants Mico 2 pack off ebay. It was $35 (USD) so the price didn't seem bad. After import, shipping and currency conversion it cost me over $70.00.

It was not worth it.

I was unimpressed by the micro figures. The don't have an articulation. I didn't find out about that until after I purchased them. I was thinking it would be funny to have micro Joes invade my wife's Assassin Creed sets she has over her PC but nope. Boring statues.

So the Kreo set is available on HTS. $93.74 to Canada before exchange (including shipping and tax). I don't think I can do it.

I looked more closely into those since they didn't seem to have weapons and discovered they weren't articulated either and passed. I'll likely pass on the big ones as well. Kinda pissed they sell a Grunt at SDCC and haven't shipped the other ones on preorder for months. No thanks.

I couldn't resist.... I bought the Cobra Scythe Skystriker :-) It was $65 (USD) on eBay + shipping. I can't wait to get it!

Just the jet, or the whole set?

I was meaning to do a review on the Crimson Strike set but it never happened. The short review in the AVAC pilot feels like he should be part of the Canadian Convention sets. It's all black with some well placed highlights. I totally fits in with the Cobra Troopers.
