    Yup. COVID probably screwed up all the timing.

    They couldn't reveal the SS86 stuff because people would have flipped out wondering where Galvatron and Rodimus were...and they can't reveal those without first announcing Kingdom.

    Damn, I didn’t think much of those RED figures, but that TFP Arcee is sweeet. Kingdom really is shaping up to be the apex of the WFC trilogy. And gimme that giant Airwave nao!

    I wonder how the new Kingdom figures scale with the Thrilling 30 Beast Wars figures?

    Skipping Rattrap, so far out of all thats reveal I’m in on Primal, Megatron, Blackarachnia, & Cheetor. Going to find a way to sneak in an order for Breakdown while at work as well.

    1. I love absolutely everything shown off for the most part. (Except continued WalMart exclusivity for R.E.D. though ha. And ok, Primal is admittedly kinda rough..)
    2. But how the hell was there no Studio Series update?? Guess it wasn't in the panel description, so fine, shouldn't have expected it... Had I actually read that... But still a let down to not talk about that at all.

    Yeah. Image was probably cropped, so maybe he's off screen and ready to impale Scorponok.

    It’s a real bummer Breakdown and the Jet Vehicon got leaked. It would’ve been such a major surprise to see them and Voyager Megatron get reissues.

    Theory: we are getting Core Optimus Prime so he can pilot/interact with the Ark Titan hinted at in the Kingdom artwork.

    Yup. But it looked like the image was cropped to fit since only BW Scorpy's claw was visible on the edge by Polar Claw.

    with all the leaked listings and copies put online leading up to this event i think it was fair to assume they might've showed ss86

    Not really. They've never shown both at the same time even at the live conventions. They like to focus on one at a time from what I've seen over the years.

    Looking at Primal's Gorilla mode, it looks like he's wearing a Loincloth.

    The panel didn't mention Earthrise toys, so why did people expect it?

    I also think that the scheduled time wasn’t enough to cover live action and 1986 Studio series figures. Once I saw the scheduled times I was thinking we might not have enough time to see everything we wanted.

    Disappointed that Hades Megatron isn’t all new. The base voyager Megatron mold from TF Prime tends to get loose at the torso and ball joint connections. Also the lack of bicep swivel was very limiting. The sculpt I had no issue with but I felt both the Prime RID and FE voyager Optimi were better figures than Prime voyager Megatron.

    Itching to see voyager Polar Claw and Scorponok! I’ve regretted passing on the originals since 1996 but most likely won’t anymore. Though I know I’ll miss that launching bat drone, that was cool.
