    Have you never seen a Watch Mojo video before? All they do is shallow.

    I've seen a few. *shudder*

    I wish they only stole 5 minutes from me.

    I was looking at the Kingdom poster and I think we will be getting a new B’boom figure

    I’m not sure if you can make it out maybe there’s a better picture but you can make out the distinct features of a mandrill/baboon

    The speculation is that it's Arcee.

    However, keep your fingers crossed for an Optimus Primal redeco/retool into B'Boom.

    I don’t see why it can’t be it’s own mold but that’s an interesting idea too

    Unless they're a redeco or retool, I feel that non-show characters are going to struggle to find their way into this line. Space is very limited.

    I figured they put him into this line anyways as crazy as that sounds, but a beast is a beast and I guess nothing never stopped them from including someone like spinister who I don’t think ever appeared in the g1. Besides bboom was a pretty cool figure and getting an update would be pretty unexpected but who knows we’ll have to wait and see. But seeing him with the same body type as Primal would is kind of interesting now that you mention it.

    B’Boom might have a better chance at getting a new figure than most, if Hasbro was willing to include characters from the Beast Wars anime anyway.

    I’m all for including toy-only characters though. Especially if it means I could get a modern interpretation of Wolfang.

    On the topic of getting toy only characters from the Kingdom BW molds it'd be great that should we get a BW Grimlock from Dinobot he'll be retooled to look like his design from IDW's BW the Gathering book.

    I just came back from viewing the picture again and I think that it is most likely Arcee. I find the prospect of G1 and beast era characters together in the same line rather jarring so Arcee didn’t even occur to me as it wasn’t even on my mind. Especially when machine and organic were pitted against one another in Beast Machines and that show really captivated me with its ideas and concepts. However I can just as equally imagine the ambition and unifying vision that Kingdom has and I think I’ve simply muted my hype as not to have my expectations too high, and maybe I’ve viewed the beast era in my own imagination for too long as something separate. Either way I am grateful for what is happening with this line. I was a decade late for beast wars after seeing episodes on YouTube in 2007 and was the only kid my age who knew about it, so I’ve kind of waited most of my life for it to return. I might actually buy a figure for the first time in a few years.

    Oh, don't worry. It won't be organic. They'll be robotic beasts, once again. -_-

    They look organic to me, the only thing I’m really concerned about are the voice actors they choose for the Netflix show now that it’s announced. If they don’t get most of the old cast back I will not have the same enthusiasm to watch it. So I have my suspicions and am keeping my standards low despite the reputation and expectations that Beast Wars coming back has. They they do mess this up I’ll just wait until the movie comes out.

    Could that little thing be our Megatron in T-Rex mode but far off in the distance? I can make out the open mouth and general form of his body but, at the kind of resolution, you’re gonna see whatever you want to see.
