    Don't get me wrong, Beast Wars and the Fossilizers are in general the highlight of Kingdom for me and I am SO excited for them.

    That said, out of all the G1 re-dos being done over and over again, to get what (I assume) will finally, FINALLY be a new-mold, G1-accurate Huffer and Pipes. If you didn't get Botcon '07 Huffer, these will be the first decent update of either of these characters since... well, their original toys. YEAH!

    Sorry if I missed this: (lots of info flying around) was there information/confirmation besides Prime having the PR code that all of these characters (Arcee/Wheeljack/Starscream) are "packaging refreshes" as opposed to repaints/remolds or even new versions ala all the characters done in both Siege and ER?

    Yeah, I can't say no to either of those two.... or Warpath, since I actually prefer the minibots to all be legend class sized in my collection.

    Slammer, heck yeah. Hoping he's a weaponizer and not a fossilizer, whatever those are gonna be. It'd be neat if they were armor, but, just gotta wait and see.

    I understand that in Primes case because he was coded as such, I was wondering if the others had codes or something that indicated as much?
    (Just by way of examples: instead of Arcee, say, being a Black Arachnia repaint ala Botcon years ago, or Wheeljack getting a new less sucky mold then ER, like so many Siege guys did in ER)
    this!!! and stop with the Sunbow scale nonsense and just make them proper Deluxes please. We're adding BW, we don't need to be beholden to almost 40 year old ideas of scale.

    This entire thread reeks of us being crusty old manbabies desperate to recapture our youth from the '90 and 2000, G1 and BW fans alike. Its a little sad and a tad silly, considering I'm pretty much someone from the Beast Era of the fanbase who ended up becoming a fan of Generation 1 characters through Beast Wars' connection. Can we just stop with the 'boomer' shit? We're both old foogey of this fandom at this point, a mere decade-ish apart. We are the first few 'generations' of this fanbase and have long been replaced as the 'new kids' by the Rid2001-UT, Movies, Animated-Prime and now Cyberverse generation and we'll keep getting older.

    Lets all sip our monster energy drinks in peace and shake hands as the old farts we all are.

    I think it's really likely Slammer is just a repaint of Warpath.

    I bet it's because the new beast wars molds are really expensive and thus they need to have a cheap repack to offset the cost, I'm pretty sure our beast wars fans are in for a real treat.

    I’d love to see a Cybertronian Wheeljack and Bumblebee get released somewhere. I was really hoping to see them in Siege.

    Out all the ER package Refreshes of siege toys only the battle squad included the “PR” code in their listing. So even though Deluxe Arcee and Wheeljack Don’t have it, there is still a chance they are just package refreshes.


    Also according to Apollux Optimus, Arcee, Wheeljack and Starscream are all just package refreshes and Apollux has been on the money so far.

    Ultra Magnus earth mode, Tracks, and Huffer/Pipes adds to my excitement for kingdom.
