As building blocks, the Kre-Os are the sturdiest non-Lego I've encountered. They're not quite as hardy as Legos, but they're the closest anyone has come yet.
As for the Car and Robot that you can build. They both look great. But I'm REALLY disappointed that both modes fail to use all the bricks that come with the set. When I finished the car mode I had six or seven pieces left over and when I finished Robot Mode I had sixteen completely different parts left over. And some of those parts were freaking huge. You know, like the windshield, and the doors, and two of the wheels. It's like every excuse Michael Bay had was true. You can't fit all the pieces of Vehicle mode into Robot mode.
Which sucks, because why the hell not?
But minifigures based on the Transformers? Awesome.
