17 BW and 14 G1, I'm assuming all the fossilizers are BW
Damn! It’ll be nice to toss those Legends Pipes and Huffer. Hopefully these deluxe minibots do stick to thy holy scale chart.
Also hope Huffer took design cues from that MP that never got made and can pull Prime’s trailer like that one episode.
There was a 4chan rumour list floating around for Kingdom Gen Selects but I can’t find the screenshot. I mean it’s a 4chan list but there’s now some stuff that could check out thanks to these new skus. One was Road Rage, a Powermaster Megatron from Double Dealer and a Leader Class figure and Diiiiiacrone was the hint. Come on Delta Magnus!!!!
With Kingdom Wheeljack confirmed. I just hope this means we will get a SS Que too
This is beautiful.
You know, I think I've been kind of casual about the possibility of updated Beast Wars figures, but now I'm finding myself actually getting excited. I definitely want the entire Season one cast. We're still missing a few, though. I hope they make it.
Shadow Panther - So, Cheetor repaint, or is he really a panther this time round? (In any case I hope they give him a new (well, his old ) head.
Huffer, and Pipes - more mini-bots for the collection. All good.
Tracks - Hope that means an Road Rage repaint, remold (She's a girl, Hasbro, don't forget that. Don't just settle for a new paint job and call it a day.)
Slammer - At long last, Metroplex gets his buddy back.
Leader Galvatron - Expected (But now I want a R.E.D. Galvatron, too.)
17 g1 (counting rodimus)
If we assume that the Earthrise cartoon is released either at the end of this year, or early next year. The Netflix toy line will run in concurrent with the Kingdom toy line, and since there is no need to reissue Kingdom toys in that toy line like in Siege, Hasbro will have to put some Beast Wars characters in it.
Given that Bumblebee, Soundwave, and Elita 1 are remoulds, I think that there is a good chance that we would see Tarantulas, Terrorsaur, and Inferno. The only major problem that I can see is that Inferno should be in a Voyager Class scale, so it is not as simple as splitting Waspinator's ass.
Terrorsaur could have been an off limits name because of the terror in it. They can't even say "gun" anymore so... :shrug:
Well as long as he's a Predacon I'm good.
There's a rumor that the delay of the movies shuffled things around.
While I agree with the sentiment...Road Rage was Tracks before Tracks was Tracks. A straight redeco with the toy head would be best. The only reason Road Rage is a she is because someone back in the day wanted more Fembots when there were few to go around.
So everybody just assumes Kingdom is the end of BW instead of the beginning?
I think the bigger takeaway here is you guys wished on a monkey's paw for scale and "accuracy" so the end result is limited slots and those only going to faces and names you recognize. Because if we were still in the world of Prime Wars it's entirely possible our big BW line would have included G1 names and faces with all new and exciting beast modes.
Good to see Waspy's name in the listings.
Yeah when the did the Fan Friday with Lenny and he showed off the weapons pack he called all the guns "blasters" until he got to Megatron when He said gun mode, then quickly corrected himself and said blaster.
Isn’t that a type of boneless chicken wings?
So all we're missing is Terrorsaur, Tarantulus, and BW Inferno correct?
Hopefully they just haven't been discovered yet is all.
A few surprises here. Don't know what the hell Wheeljack is doing back, but maybe he serves as a kind of end note for returning to Cybertron and has his space van mode? I would rather have had Skids, but that's cool too. Beyond jacked for Huffer and Pipes. I almost thought new versions would be too good to be true.
Probably. I wish we had the other 3 s1 characters, but I'll take what I can get.
So far I'm looking at picking up:
Deluxe Shadow Panther
Voyager Optimus Primal
Any other Fossilizers
If we get any Fossilizer or BW Exclusives or Selects, I'll grab those too.
I love G1, but I'm done with adding it my collection after Netflix Bumblebee, SS 86 Jazz and any SS86 Dinobots we get. Only because Netflix Bee finally is a VW, while Jazz and the Dinobots haven't had a good mainline toy since the 80s.
I don't follow.
The bare minimum most BW fans are asking for is the 14 season one characters. I don't see how them scaling with each other and looking accurate has bearing on a certain number of them seemingly getting pushed aside by the random Fossilizer gimmick and G1 guys that are retools of each other.
I'm having a SUPER hard time believing that Core Class Starscream is going to be the only use of that mold. When was the last time Hasbro/Takara created a seeker mold and didn't immediately repaint/retool it into five others or more?
And if it's a really GOOD smaller scale Starscream, I'd want them to.
