Kre-o landed in Belgium

Hi all,

I’ve had some trouble getting the G.I. Joe kre-o sets in Belgium, but eventually I succeeded in getting all the sets. If anybody can help me get the bagged kreons… just post a reply or send me a mail or a tweet 🙂

Bitten by the building bug, I’ve been looking at other (building) toys to add to my G.I. Joe collection. The first obvious choice is LEGO, but I didn’t really find something that would fit. So the second brand is Kre-O itself. The Transformers sets are pretty cool, but I’m not into that reality, so my choice fell on the Kre-O Battleship sets. I had been looking around, but the prices were still quite high (min. €20 – $26 per box). But then… I walked into my local Action store (it’s a store that sells office supplies, kitchen aid tools, toys, food, … you name it, they probably have it) and I browsed past the toys section (they once had some Joes on sale). My eyes fell on these sets:

Chopper Air Assault Stryker

 

Each of these were on sale for a little €6 ($ 7.5)! They will make a great addition to my collection. The aliens are not exactly B.A.T.’s, but hey, the vehicles are quite cool and the generic humans can be used as Greenshirts 🙂

All I need to do know is get them build and find a place to create a great dio or display… Keep you posted!

  1. Hi Fellow European GI Joe collector !!!!

    I am also looking forward to buy some GI Joe KRE-o sets in Europe ….. you say you bought them directly from Toys’r’us in US ? did you pay taxes and customs in Belgium ?

    Regarding the Battleship items you mention for €6 in a Belgium Store … are there still available ?

    Thanx and kind regards,

    Paulo

    1. Hi Paulo,

      I had to pay taxes and customs, but Toys ‘R US automatically adds them to the checkout so you don’t have to pay anything extra upon delivery.

      The Battleship toys were available at Action, but they don’t sell them anymore now 🙁 They sell Top products for low prices, but with very limited stock and availability differs from store to store…

      Best regards,
