    Sorry all, double-checked and it looks more like SS Hot Rod. Pictures are a little low res for my failing eyesight.

    It was mostly an unflattering grey proto of the beast mode. Colour images and properly posed on box-art she looks good.

    Sorry, my bad, he is.

    I feel most are their own thing so far apart from BlackArachnia. Maybe Leader Megs but that's more down to the transformation choices being limited due to beast mode.

    Wow. Hot Rod looks great. Too bad when the crowd of people that hate fake parts wake up, this thread will turn into a bitch fest.

    I was planning on getting all of the fossilizers anyway (I love unique characters) but man this guy looks pretty cool.

    I remember when people were complaining that ER Sunstreaker WASN'T using fake parts for the chest!

    I hate to be a party pooper, as I was super looking forward to Hot Rod, but I hope the vehicle mode is mistransformed so the spoiler is sitting higher up than it should in that photo. Otherwise it looks like the vehicle mode cockpit is cut in half, it looks like it should be twice the length it is there.

    I do really like the robot mode (I’m glad the spoiler is visible on his back), & accept I’m being super picky but I love Hot Rod’s car mode, and here it looks like the PotP Hot Rod car mode actually looks superior (if not much simpler & more angular)

    I’m hoping this is just a case of early prototype photos & it being mistransformed / looking better in person, but quite disappointed here :(

    Oh, thank you so much! Are you allowed to tell us the "pose" of the falcon? Like is it in a sitting position, head looking 90° down or a flying position head looking forward. Ooor is it super articulated in beast mode and we can do whatever we want with it?
    No need to answer. Thankful either way

    Wooosh leak time. Finally a look at a fossilizer. I already dig it and did you notice:

    The cheetahs hind legs are FINALLY in a proper neutral stance giving it a nearly perfect look

    I can understand if MP, BW, and Movie figures use faux parts, it’s getting kinda lazy to bring it G1 figures though, I guess the Commander Rodimus will transform more traditionally.

    I can't wait for all these figures! I may be a completionist for Kingdom!

    But seeing that we are back to armor with the Fossilizers, I wonder if we may get another siege Red Alert situation. For those who don't know/remember, When Brunt was first showed off, one of his stock photos was him combined to Siege Red Alert, but Red wasn't revealed till the next show and Hasbro didn't acknowledge it till the next show.

    Hot Rod looks a little boxy. Reserving judgement for now.

    I had a dream about Lio Convoy when I was a kid once. I haven't even seen BWII.

    Both seem they would have been in the WFC line with Blaster as a Soundwave retool. Surprised there not in the Kingdom line. Im hoping because of the BS that happened this year they will continue Kingdom for another year, like a two-part deal to make up for ER sales. That way we get any remaining G1 and BW characters like Blitzwing and Terrosaur.

    I think it's Paleotrex. Ractonite is the styracosaurus.

    I've seen two poses, a resting/roosting and a flying pose. Flying pose looks much better and more natural.

    So the wings don't fold well? I guess that's fine. Most would pose her in flight anyway, don't want too many joints in the wings breaking the sculpt.
