    Hey ho all, just heard from my mate that wave 4 was actually never a thing for ER, and the plan was always to launch Kingdom in Dec.

    Seems a bit weird, but apparently Kingdom will be 4 waves, with the last wave coming in Oct 2021.
    Looks like we may be back to Xmas being the launch period for new lines.

    So that being the case here's a teaser for a potential wave 1 character K4P0W!

    Hmm, Warpath confimed! I hope he is Deluxe akin to CJ, BB, HC and authentic to G1.

    Well, looks like the Core class will fill up nicely with some missing names.

    I am hoping Core Class is more than an exact redux of Legends Class, I wouldn't mind paying $15.99 usd for Core Class if it gives us minibots / smaller figures akin to Deluxe Class CJ/BB/HC etc

    So long as he's not a Voyager. There's already too many bots fighting for those limited spots.

    Seeing how legends sized figs are being sold in deluxe packaging now i could see Warpath being a deluxe with a few accessories and still being in scale with the other minibots instead of core class. Btw sorry if this has been asked but @Apollux I was wondering if the new titan is air lock compatible?

    Here's another question: do you guys suppose the leader class figures will be leader sized, or will they still be voyager sized with extra components? Because I'm having a hard time thinking of what extra components they would give Beast Megs. A giant rubber ducky that turns into battle armor, maybe?

    He could well be a straight-up Leader class. His tail/weapon, t-rex head, legs and backpack will take up a lot of bulk, so he may not be vastly taller than a Voyager, which would work well going forward if we're to see his TM and TM2 designs down the track.

    The core class Optimus and Megatron pretty much confirm the Ark as the next titan.

    I have a feeling it's actually the masterpiece since that's coming out in around a month, so I'm taking it with a grain of salt

    If your hint is Warpath... I can actually see him being released as a deluxe since WFC keeps to the old cartoon scale and Warpath was always one of the larger minibots. I believe a lot of times he was shown to be around the same size as the shorter Autobot cars. He'd work as a deluxe like his Generations figure.

    But if that's coming out in around a month, it should probably be all manufactured already. Given someone in the know has said Kingdom Tigatron is being manufactured at the moment, I'd say it's more likely these parts are for that.

    Yeah, it doesn’t look like how CHUG figures are constructed either. It looks like these are thigh-sections for beast mode. If this was CHUG, it would only be two sticky-outty bits on each piece for a pin to go through.

    Working with the idea that Kingdom is roughly 50/50 G1/BW and has 4 waves, that could give us 16 Deluxe figures at retail.

    Here's my take:
    1. Cheetor
    2. Tigatron
    3. Airazor
    4. Scorponok
    5. Blackarachnia
    6. Waspinator
    7. Tracks
    8. Skids
    9. Wreck-Gar
    10. Warpath
    11. Scourge
    12. Shrapnel
    13. Bombshell
    14. Kickback
    15. Landsaur
    16. Seasaur
    6 Beast Wars (3 Maximals, 3 Predacons), 8 G1 (4 Autobots, 4 Decepticons) and 2 Fossilizers.

    For those wondering where they are, in my mind Tarantulas and Inferno will get some kind of "Predacon Patrol" 2-pack, like Earthrise Ironhide and Prowl's "Autobot Alliance".

    If they have Rattrap, Blackarachnia, Tarantulas as Core, Primal and Dinobot as Voyagers, Megatron as a Leader, that leaves eight s1 characters. Easily fit into the Deluxes at two per wave. We know there are 3 Fossilizers, that leaves 5 spots for the G1 bots.
