Video Review for WFC Kingdom Huffer

Postby william-james88 » Mon Jan 18, 2021 2:19 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
Huffer seems to be the breakout star from the Transformers Kingdom line, especially for G1 fans. Now we have a video review of the little guy. While he is indeed a very small deluxe figure, he goes come with extra accessories. You can watch Kremzeek's review below along with still images. This toy is expected to be at retail between April-June 2020.

Huffer looks real great. It's too bad his head is static during transformation. I thought it would flip back into the space made by flipping out the wheels. The reviewer didn't seem to have converted the torso correctly since the front wheels in truck mode didn't seem to touch the ground.

Yea kremzeek review tends to just rush the transformation process, and in result can miss some step in the process.

I hope that's not Huffer's finalized hand color. Supposed to be gray like his arms, not black.

He is a great looking toy for sure, and if my son showed any interest I'd have got it. But I passed, better to let someone who really wants it have it. If he ever goes on sale maybe....But even me, with my relatively small collection am starting to see space become an issue, gotta save it for what I really want.


Definitely, same here. I saw 86 Hot Rod and a lot of Netflix bots in my hunt for Bumblebee, but decided not to get them, because even with my small collection I’m running out of room. Plus my display is a mix of a lot of different eras. The only Kingdom figure I saw was Rattrap. Everything else was Cyberverse.

Finally got Kingdom Leader Megatron at Target! Every time before, all I could find for the Leader Class was the Optimus Prime repack. Now I just need Optimus Primal and Cyclonus and I'll have the entirety of what I want from the first wave of Kingdom product. :)

It's funny, by the way, how we've all been hyped up for Kingdom for MONTHS, and the product is only slowly trickling into retailers. However, the "Buzzworthy Bumblebee" line that no one knew about before is just flooding the shelves at Targets in my area with mostly rehashed products.

I'm so on the fence about Kingdom Magnus. Magnus is one of my favorite transformers. I really like the Siege mold. It's highly G1-esque, with the armor up gimmick I love, but adds its own flair. He hits all the points I like. I also like the detailing a little more than the Kingdom mold. Since I have MP Magnus, I don't think I need Kingdom Magnus... But those "glasses" on the Kingdom Magnus are so slick. These decisions are so hard...

So I came across my second QC issue with Kingdom yesterday when I was finally transforming BW Megatron. One of the 2 spring loaded neck flaps with the plastic base and the rubbery skin material didn't have the skin material fully attached. Each part has the rubber skin material push through the black plastic part in 2 spots. One one of mine it was only attached in 1 of the 2 spots allowing the outer skin piece to rotate. I actually got him all the way transformed before I noticed when the black plastic part was showing through.

I didn't think to take a photo before finding another this morning and making an exchange, but somethhing to take a look at once you get yours.

I definitely want Huffer.
The scaling is nice, & even if that’s not accurate, I appreciate that he’ll add a bit of variety.
After seeing more photos, I’m actuallly tempted to get Ultra Magnus.
I’ll wait on him for a while though.
If I don’t end up finding Netflix Bee or Bluestreak I’ll definitely get him.
I like this Kingdom version quite a bit more than the Siege one.

So, I got Cyclonus in habd yesterday anf this is right up there with one of the best Voyagers ever. I love everythinf about this figure with no complaints other than some too-stiff joints. But am I alone in wishing they had done something to make use of the 5mm wrist port, like a peg on the back of his gun so it can attach that way, lime the Universe Cyclonus and Nightstick could? The peg hole is already there for Vehicle mode, I want to see them carry it across the finish line.

My gut tells me we might see an SDCC set of Targetmasters where Cyclonus will come with Nightstick, so that hole might be of use then.

It's been a little time since I received Cyclonus from Gamestop, and still I really agree with this-- he is easily one of the best mainline figures I've ever bought...
The hinged knees don't bother me at all, and just overall he looks at least a bit better in person than in any of the product shots, which were all pretty decent.
There are some tight joints, but when you consider the opposite possibility, it's not really a true problem, but rather a small inconvenience.
I don't like 5mm ports in general, so for me, there are plenty of those as is.
This is the type of figure that plays into me being picky and knowing that Hastak has the capability of making outstanding figures... Cyclonus is one that pushes that bar of expectations up substantially.
Yeah, Hot Rod and Scourge are really, really good. The ER seekers are all awesome... I dig the Datsun bros ER mold... But Cyclonus is the best imo.
He also confirms why I've held off on Kup and Blurr up to this point. Until those guys go on a good sale such as buy one get one 50% off, I can wait, and may pass altogether.

I'm really thinking SS86 Grimlock, (hopefully Galvatron and Slag), and Cyclonus will be the stars of these most recent lines.

My advice to anyone is don't skip Cyclonus. He's phenomenal.

Okay bot mode is fine, but not since I already have Siege. Truck mode is awful. They're supposed to be in disguise remember? I want originality not bad retools. Hasbro wants me to buy 15 different versions of Magnus they need to bring their A game.

Images of Variant Headsculpt for Kingdom Beast Wars Megatron

Postby william-james88 » Sat Jan 23, 2021 11:21 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
We now have pictures of a different headsculpt for Transformers WFC Kingdom leader Megatron. This headsculpt is more remeniscent of the original Beast Wars Megatron toy with the ninja turtle type mouth. These iamges come to us from Tungg who posted them on the TFW2005 boards. It seems this is a variant they found on the Megatron toy they purchased. Most molds are designed with more than one headsculpt and it seems this particular variant made it onto final products. It is probable that this is the headsculpt we will see on a redeco of Megatron, like T Wrecks, as was the case with Starscream's screaming headsculpt found on Skywarp.

My guess is that this alternate head sculpt is for a different release of this mold later on, but on the production line, someone cast the parts with the wrong gate open for the head, and we got the alternate one. However, since this run is supposed to be the closed mouth version, the people painting probably had no directions for any teeth, because they shouldn't be there, so it was painted as if it was the closed mouth version.
