Toy News: Official photos of SDCC 2015 KREO Boxed set

In all the excitement generated by San Diego Comic-Con 2015 I had neglected to upload these fun images of the KRE-O "Class of 1985" boxed set being sold at SDCC 2015 for $60 at the Hasbro booth! This set also features several extra pieces that pay homage to the film "Back to the Future" (which came out in 1985) including a record called "Jetfire Be Good" and an extra "hair" accessory that looks like Doc Brown's wacky hair! This is definitely one of the highlights of the convention exclusives.
