Oh, and Galvatron, but weve already seen a lot of him.

"That must weigh heavily on your soul. Let me purge it for you."

So the Ark seems to become The Last Autobot?

And is this the first physical representation of Teletraan 1?

I hope Galvatron's treads can fold away a bit better in robot mode, but he looks great, except maybe his little hooves.

I got this title for free due to my proximity to an idiot who wanted to save $5 on an avatar by having someone else spend $9.95 instead.


And Scorpinok! Yay!

only Inferno and Rhinox are left out from season 1 figures in Kingdom. Oh well. The Generations Rhinox is good, but I wish Inferno got some love. For the colony!

Rhinox is coming, I believe leaks have indicated. The only S1 BW characters being left out are Inferno and Tarantulas.

I suspect they will be along next year. Two Infernos in one line could be seen as confusing.

Also the Kingdom Inferno slander can stop because that figure is fantastic.

STOP BEING EVIL.


Honestly the Ark seems kinda bad. The robot mode is kinda dorky, and then the spaceship mode has exposed knees (how's that gonna look when it's buried in a mountain?) and it seems like a weird choice to dot it with turrets all over the place when the original Ark was decidedly less armed, from back when there was a theme of the Autobots still being more civilians and not fully militarized. Might've liked that rear tower painted.

I love the Teletraan One guy though. I hope the satellite transforms into something as well.

There will definitely be some kind of third party filler add-on, I'm sure.

Will buy in hopes of encouraging a Nemesis. Also because I like big bots and I cannot lie.

Rumors for the next series are some kind of timeline or multiverse collapse bringing random characters from all over the various lines together, which sounds vaguely TransTechish.

Keldroc posted:

Normally I'd think so, but that would be a huge add-on, way bigger than the little gap fillers they normally make. I'm not sure if it's within their capabilities.

I'm intrigued for sure. When I say "Do TransTech" I'm not really making any sense because aside from the draxhall jump concept art and those early protos I'm not even sure what the premise behind the line was supposed to be, aside from bringing G1 and BW characters together.

"multiverse collapse" sounds like a great thing to kill off my remaining shelf space and call it a hobby for awhile though! Normally I'd be pickier about my choices but everything's been excellent for so long I'm just out of places to put robots now.

Dude there is a full extra set of scorpion legs for Titan Scorponok and new hands and feet for Metroplex. I promise fillers for those gaps are small potatoes for modern third party work.

I got a couple of Fort Max sets, new hands (full articulation), hip guns, new hip springs, replacement crotch, sandals for his feet, and new guns.

Cerebros got new legs too.


Cost more than the original toy did.

He looks GREAT though!
