    I wouldn't be too worried about it. Windblade's still among Hasbro's top Transformers to use in general and I can't imagine them not bothering giving her a new figure that fits into the current direction they're taking with Generations nowadays. It may be for a while true but still never say never. I mean for crying out loud a lot of us didn't think we'd see Beast Wars ever get any attention again but Kingdom came along and proved otherwise so you never know.

    1. I’m not offended by shellforming, I’m offended by how Arcee’s transformation is just her knees being dislocated and that’s it, as well as the hideous alt mode. It’s frustrating to see after T30 Hasbro just seems to become increasingly incompetent at making a good fembot.

    As for Airrazer I’m definitely interested in how they execute her. Hell, considering Appolux’s praise for BA, I am VERY interested in how they execute some of the molds.

    I mean Airrazor's body's isn't as curvy as a G1 fembot while also not being very bulky like Strika or Strongarm. So I can't see how hard it would be to make a figure out of Airrazor that isn't a backpack former. I mean sure she'll have the Falcon wings but really that's expected out of a lot of fliers in general.

    and the wings could easily condense with the use of multiple hinges

    I don't mind shellforming either. I do agree that earthrise arcee transformation is rather lazy and not as involved as the t30 arcee tho. I mean I'm still gonna get ER arcee tho because I want HasTak to keep making fembots.

    Blackarachnia and Airrazor are some of the hardest transformers to make screen accurate. With their cartoon robot mode models, it's difficult to make a toy with both modes looking alright. Can't wait to see what they did with blackarachnia and airrazor.

    Airrazor's only problem will be how big her wings are, the show had them shrink for boy mode, and her falcon head to B cup, but I'm sure they can pull that off with a fake falcon head for her bot mode chest. Blackarachnia is just a nightmare and I don't thing the could just down size the MP toy, so expect her to have a spider butt shield.

    Airrazor is a good candidate for Core class. Hopefully Quickstrike will be updated too!

    Possibly an unpopular opinion, if Kingdom Warpath's alt mode doesn't look like a mini armored vehicle either vintage or modern such as the PAV1 Badger I'd prefer his size be closer to ER Ironhide than ER Cliffjumper.

    I'm under the impression that whatever comes after Kingdom will be less G1 and more interpretations of other characters. They've run out of most G1 characters to reimagine to a modern take. Kingdom and some of the selects are a test to see if there's interest in these other franchises. The Armada Prime hasnt been released yet as well.
    I would not be surprised if whats after Kingdom is either primarily Beast Wars or a mix of Beast Wars, Machine Wars, and Unicron Trilogy with some comic characters and left over G1 sprinkled in(Still waiting for a Tarn and I want a Leaderclass Thunderwing, and where's my Deathsaurus!?).

    how do you update quickstrike though? That’s my problem with so many names being dropped for new toys. Season one I get. They’re like season one of G1. Huge deviations from the toys but by season 2 the characters were literally their toys on screen especially quickstrike. I had him and him in the cartoon and his toy were practically identical

    Yup, BW Quickstrike is pretty much perfect as is.

    So if Cheetor is a Deluxe and Tigatron is a Voyager...there's precedent for characters who would have nearly identical transformations to show up in different size classes.

    And I'm not saying this as a complaint. I think that's perfectly fine. If they can use the same transformation scheme but still deliver two otherwise identical characters at scale to one another, more power to them.

    If Kingdom does well enough and is received well, at that point the doors are open and there's nothing stopping them from doing new toys of those characters again. There's also the opportunity to do non-show characters who got toys (like from Awakening).

    I also think, in general, you're not going to get "superior" toys in Kingdom. They'll look more accurate, but there are things about the original BW toys that you likely won't get in these.

    I wouldn't be so confident. They did give us two nigh-identical G1 Optimus and G1 Megatron toys two years in a row. They'll find an excuse to keep repeating the G1 cast with negligible deviations from the source material.

    So identical that his robot mode head was often visible, if miscoloured, beneath his alt mode.
