    The rebirth... he beats them on earth, takes cybertron, almost destroying both cybertron and earth, if it wasn’t for those pesky humans/Nebulons. In His last statement he planned on rebuilding Unicron... so Yes he’s Crazy Sane.

    Galvatron wanting to rebuild unicron never happened in rebirth, in headmasters he wanted to take cybertron as his own body and become comparable to unicron, maybe that's what you're thinking of?

    2- I’d reeeeeeeally like a CC Star Saber!!! And I woulda been way more excited for him.

    Alright, I haven't done a countdown for Kingdom yet, so out of what I own, here we go:

    14. Deluxe Warpath: Why does Warpath have to be a parts-former? The tank mode front end doesn't hold together without the "shield". Except for waist and ankle articulation, the old Generations version is better, IMHO. Unfortunately, I'll likely end up buying this as Slammer for Generations Metroplex.
    [​IMG]

    13. Core Vertebreak: Interesting figure, but not sure what the point of a Fossilizer is that doesn't break apart to form weapons?
    [​IMG]

    12. Core Megatron: Neat little Megatron includes a weapon of his G1 gun alt. mode that can also be used to simulate his G1 back kibble. Would have been better if the shoulder articulation wasn't so limited.
    [​IMG]

    11. Deluxe Paleotrex: Robots turning into dinosaur fossils? That's really weird. Using him to equip other figures is challenging since the parts are obviously bones.
    [​IMG]

    10. Deluxe Huffer: Robot mode is a nice G1 Huffer. Accessories are cool, and the ability for him to tow Leader Optimus's trailer is appreciated, but the vehicle mode has issues holding together, especially without the shield as a truck bed.
    [​IMG]

    9. Core Optimus Prime: Nice little Prime to use with the upcoming Titan Ark.
    [​IMG]

    8. Leader Ultra Magnus: Earth mode truck and trailer? check. Cab becomes a white pseudo-Optimus? Check. Missing paint and accessories, as well as exposed hands in truck mode keep Leader Magnus from ranking higher. Still, the armored robot mode looks spot-on, so I'm glad I found him.
    20210426_093945.jpg

    7. Core Starscream: Best Core Class that I've gotten yet. Neat, involved conversion. May we please get this as a Voyager?
    [​IMG]

    6. Voyager Dinobot: The robot mode is good and the dino mode is decent, but just like Leader Megs below, getting there is a headache. I don't know what the heck that tail is supposed to be in robot mode, but being able to leave it on his back is nice.
    [​IMG]

    5. Deluxe Airrazor: Another surprise that I wasn't expecting to like. Both modes look good and conversion isn't too much of a headache. More fem-bots are always welcome.
    [​IMG]

    4. Leader Beast Megatron: Got this guy for the T. rex mode, but robot mode is really cool too, and they even gave him a proper hand on his claw arm. Getting from one mode to the other is a pain in the aft, though, at least for me.
    [​IMG]

    3. Voyager Cyclonus: Finally, a good Voyager-sized representation of Galvatron's loyal second in command. Neat conversion into a cool purple space fighter!
    20210426_094012.jpg

    2. Voyager Inferno: The better remold of ER Grapple, and the peghole problem seems to be fixed.
    [​IMG]

    1. Voyager Optimus Primal: A big surprise that he's my overall favorite Kingdom figure, since I'm not a Beast Wars fan. The conversion isn't too bad, and he's got some neat gimmicks like his pop-out weapons.
    [​IMG]

    I have Ractonite but I still haven't opened it yet. :rolleyes:

    It's a shield. In the show and original toy it spins to deflect attacks.

    Got Cheetor yesterday on discount when I went to the mall. It was between him and Blackarachnia. I must say I enjoyed this figure way more than I thought I would, I'm very happy that I picked them up. I still plan to get like Blackarachnia eventually but I'm glad this guy was my first beastformer ever.

    Got dinobot but the two fold out leg flaps that are supposed to peg together in dino mode don't stay together on one side. Is this a common issue? Bad tolerances on my copy I guess.

    Though, how about we talk about where on the BW/Fossilizer Kingdom figures are the Faction Symbols? Specifically, where are they in robot mode (unless Beast Mode is simpler to place)?
    ??? means I can't find it. If you can provide images of where they are if you have it, that would be great.
    ?? means I can't find it, but it hasn't been released yet so I don't know where it is.
    WFC-K2 Rattrap: The Forearms
    WFC-K3 Vertebreak: The Chestplate
    WFC-K4 Cheetor: The Forehead
    WFC-K5 Blackarachnia: The Front of Her Collar
    WFC-K7 Paleotrex (Fossilizer): The Chestplate
    WFC-K8 Optimus Primal: ???
    WFC-K10 Megatron (Beast): The Forehead
    WFC-K14 Airazor: Right Forearm
    WFC-K15 Ractonite: Front Right Styracosaurus Flank or Lower Right Robot Torso
    WFC-K18 Dinobot: ???
    WFC-K21 Dracodon: Same Place as Mold Mate Vertebreak
    WFC-K23 Predacon Scorponok: ??
    WFC-K25 Wingfinger: On the Forehead
    WFC-K27 Rhinox: ??
    WFC-K39 Tricranius: On the Cheek
    WFC-GS25 Transmutate: ???
    Their redecoes, including Skelivore, in the Netflix Toyline, were in the same place as the originals.

    Though, I really see the 2 Different Positions of the Styracosaurus Head for Ractonite in Robot Mode represent an "Attack Mode" and a "Defense Mode". The one where the Styracosaurus head is facing down is "Attack Mode" while the one where the Styracosaurus head is facing up is "Defense Mode". To show you what I mean, look at the Thumbnails for reviews of Ractonite. PrimeVsPrime, Larkin's Lair, TonTon Reviews, and JTMitchell87 all show Ractonite in "Defense Mode" while Emgo316, Kremzeek Reviews, optibotimus, and Notomus all show Ractonite in "Attack Mode". Here are some screenshots. Don't mind my Bookmarks or my Taskbar.
    Screenshot (8230).png
    Screenshot (8231).png
    Screenshot (8233).png
    Screenshot (8234).png
    The reason why I call them "Attack Mode" and "Defense Mode". I call "Attack Mode" that because I can see Ractonite suddenly swapping his shoulder and his Forearm to grab hold of his opponent because he has no real hands. Meanwhile, I call "Defense Mode" that because it covers more of his body. Also looking at the Thumbnails, Kremzeek Reviews attached the other shoulder differently. Though surprisingly, it doesn't look wrong. This just goes to show how the Fossilizer Gimmick makes even a weird difference work. Meanwhile, I really like the whole Weaponizer/Modulator/Fossilizer Gimmicks. They really ought to continue that gimmick after the WFC Trilogy Ends.

    are you properly tabbing warpath's leg-panels together in tank mode?
    the front holds together fairly well if you do.
    the panels have 3 interlocking tabs, and the middle one has nubs that can "lock" it between the other 2 tabs.
    this is an easy step to miss because it takes a lot of force to make the interlocking tabs "click" together, and if you skip the step everything still appears to sit properly when held together by the shield panel.

    I always did like how physical the combat in Beast Wars could get, even when 75% of the original toyline and show cast were toting enough firepower to level a mountain. It's fuel for the imagination.
