Hasbro Kre-O Sgt Slaughter’s Marauders Set Brings Back Saturday Morning Memories [Review]

Hasbro Kre-O Sgt Slaughters Marauders Set

In 2011, Hasbro started releasing its own building block sets under the Kre-O brand. GI Joe made its debut in the line in 2013, and Hasbro has slowly been rolling out sets based on the classic Real American Hero brand. This year at San Diego Comic-Con, Sgt. Slaughter and the Marauders make their debut in grand fashion. Not only that, but he'll be joined by Destro and his Iron Grenadiers.

Unlike this year's Transformers Kre-O exclusive, this set is more than just a collection of minifigures. The GI Joe set will also include a Tag Team Terminator vehicle to build. Yes, the Sergeant's Triple "T" single-pilot tank is here in all its Kre-O glory. It's quite a little set, and one that brings back incredibly fond memories of sitting around watching GI Joe with my cousin and being jealous he got all the cool vehicles. Who's laughing now, Steve? It's me because now I have the cool things.

Toy Fair 2014: 50th Anniversary ‘G.I. Joe’ 3.75″ Figure And Vehicle Sets And A Huge KRE-O Cobra Terror Drome

Terror Drome Cobra KREO Hasbro Toy Fair 2014

G.I. Joe turns 50 this year, which means Hasbro's comprehensive toy plans may be just a little too big to simply tack onto the already sprawling Toy Fair 2014. In leiu of launching every single detail of its pending half-century milestone, for now it has comparatively conservatively unveiled a few new Toys "R" Us exclusive 3.75" action figure and vehicle assortments -- essentially redecos of iconic characters like Destro, Baroness, Snow Job and others -- plus new KRE-O building sets. The standout of the official image rollout so far is definitely the KRE-O Cobra Terror Drome, which recreates the 1980s G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero playset in loving, blocky detail, right down to all of the play features. You can check out some of Hasbro's upcoming G.I. Joe toys, along with official product info, after the jump.
