Me too... still have OG BW Buzzsaw, but also the blue/gold deco and Gen's Waspy. If the Generations Waspy is acceptable to you, the 4 BotCon Waruders are cheap enough (for exclusives) on eBay still.

You want more news today? OK here you go… Hasbro has officially revealed several new Transformers items over on IGN, leading into Friday’s Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest. And these are some biggies. Titan class Autobot Ark, Leader class Galvatron, and Deluxe class Beast Wars Scorponok. Read on for the pics and stay tuned for full product details!
Quick run down:
Titan Class Autobot Ark
— 19 Inches Tall
— Comes with Sky Spy Accessory
— Teletraan-1 Computer Station that transforms into own bot
— Optimus Prime micro figure similar to style that came with Unicron
— MSRP $149.99
— Leader Class
— Comes with Matrix & chain
— MSRP $49.99
Beast Wars Scorponok
— Deluxe Class
— MSRP $22.99
All are due to be available in July 2021, with pre-orders going live this week during Fan Fest.
We have new official images of Leader Galvatron and official images of both the Titan Class Autobot Ark AND Deluxe Beast Wars Scorponok
They look amazing. ≈ $150 for the Ark, ≈ $50 for Galvatron, and ≈ $23 for Scorponok.
So we have got the First Course in Rodimus Prime, this is the Second Course, the Third Course will be the remaining Deluxe Figures and Voyager Rhinox, and the dessert will be the Core Class Figures.
The Ark is looking pretty damn good. My only complaint is those ugly wide open spaces on the sides of the ship mode toward the rear. Hasbro couldn't put some kind of panel to cover it up?
Other than that, looks great. The Last Autobot headsculpt is spot on from the 80s comic.
Scorponok looks nice, but i hope the ark is somehow able to store something bigger than a core class, so i could display it as a transport ship for my diaclone army.
Judging by the engineering it seems it has very limited storage space in ship mode...
I guess my dianauts will have to wait more before being able to perform deep space trips.
Is there a thread for the ark figure?
Figured I'd share this tidbit over here since not everybody follows the UK toy discussion thread. But Apollux has confirmed that Terrorsaur is indeed an Airazor retool.
Terrorsaur being an Airazor retool doesn't bother me, nor does them compromising on the bot mode since his wings literally shrink to fit nice on his arms in the cartoon (leave them on the back and folded in), but does he still look like Terrorsaur in bot mode? I don't care if he's a bit sleek, Terrorsaur was always a smug pretty boy type.
My main interest is: is the Pteranodon head on the back, and Pteranodon tail on the chest. Even if they're using faux parts to fake it does he still over all look like Terrorsaur?
I always felt that gave him a distinct look from other beast warriors who usually had the beast head on their chest.
Liking how he sounds so far. Figured he'd be an Airrazor retool so I hope they did a lot to make his robot mode look as accurate as possible despite being retooled from Airrazor.
If it's to my expectations I can die happy!
I just hope it’s a solid retool and not a lazy one. I really can’t wait to see Terrorsaur.
Not specifically just the Ark, but yes, IGN Reveals Kingdom Ark, Galvatron and Scorponok! is for the Ark reveal (as well as Galvatron and BW Scorponok).
I mean it, I really hope they reveal it this Friday.
Do we know if Rhinox and Waspinator will be new molds?
Yes they’re new molds. Why wouldn’t they be?
Because Hasbro excessively reuses their molds to save money.
No matter it's flaws. I love Kingdom for the fact that it combines G1 and Beast Wars figures into a single cohesive toy line. A crossover I always wanted since I heard about Transtech being cancelled.
