Story-comic

A page only starring existing kreons. Don't get used to this.

Premiering in August of 2013 on the Kre-O website run by Hasbro's Japanese partner company Takara Tomy, the Webcomic (written on the site as WEBコミック, or WEBkomikku) is a humorous series starring the existing Transformers Kreons as well as an ever-increasing cast of background kreons based on characters from the Transformers franchise but which lack actual toy representations. The comic's creator, Hayato Sakamoto (坂本勇人), is known for his work as a deeply devoted fan artist and his contributions to official Transformers fanclub media, which means his choices for background characters are sometimes really obscure.

NotesEdit

Some of the Kreons depicted in the webcomic have been produced by Hasbro and Oxford, but were not yet available in Japan at the time the comics premiered. These include kreons from the first wave of Kre-O Transformers building sets, which TakaraTomy has not yet imported for the Japanese market. Many others appear who did not have actual toy representations at the time, but are always (with the exception of the hair on some of the human kreons) drawn to use existing bricks, weapons, and helmets. This should not be taken as an indication that a kreon of that character will become available: Rodimus and Kup appeared together in a panel in Episode 3, but the actual Micro-Changers that were released later in the year used different parts and colors from what Sakamoto drew. The is so far no evidence that Sakamoto has any knowledge of what kreons will be released.

The actual Kre-O construction sets appear in the comics as ordinary vehicles that are changed into giant robots by the Transformers kreons, using an ability called Block Transform. The resulting robot is the robot mode of the vehicle from the construction set, referred to in the comics as a "Mega-" (巨大, meaning extremely big, gigantic, or used as a prefix like the English mega- or giga-) version of the kreon who transformed it. For example, Bumblebee can Block Transform a black and yellow car into Mega-Bumblebee. So far, this is the only piece of Kre-O fiction to offer a reason for why the giant block-built versions of Transformers cooexist with the smaller kreons.
