It was only revealed less than a week ago, but Seibertron himself was able to get his hands on the new Buzzworthy Bumblebee Worlds Collide set. This 4-pack is set to be a Target exclusive this summer, and includes the Predacons Nemesis Primal, an Optimus Primal retool and redeco; and Blackarachnia, a retool and redeco of Kingdom Blackarachnia in her original Beast Wars toy colors. Also included is Bumper Bumblebee, a retool and recolor of Siege Cliffjumper with the appropriate Bumblebee head, though sadly not his elusive VW Beetle mode.

But the star of the set is none other than everyone's favorite winged wolf, the Decepticon Fangry! His original toy was released near the tail end of the G1 line in America, as a small Headmaster toy, along with his partner Brisko. Fangry's first update actually came during Titans Return in the form of Titan Master Fangry. He came as a small robot modeled after Brisko who could turn into the head of any compatible toy, and also included a small toy he could interact with in different ways, turning into either a dragon, a blaster, or when he combined with it, his original beast mode. While a cool little toy, it didn't quite satisfy those looking for a full sized update. But thanks to a heavy retool of the Titans Return Grotusque toy, we now get Fangry in all his Deluxe sized glory! Being faithful to the G1 toy, we now have an update to Brisko, Nebulos' most infamous cartographer, as well. Seibertron has been hard at work creating galleries for all of Fangry's most recent toys, and you can enjoy the fruits of that labor by checking out these three new galleries!

Take a look at the preview pictures below, and click on any one of them to be taken to that toy's specific gallery. You can also confirm the UPC and DPCI (Target specific inventory codes) codes below as well, which are DPCI 087-16-8265 and UPC code 5010993854783. Most Target stores are expecting the set in the next couple of weeks.

That sure didn't take long Seibertron. I'm so in love with that Blackarachnia, the colors just make it look like one helluva scary, venomous spider. It's what a younger me saw when I would squint at her toy to make it look like her show self.

Besides that, I'd maybe like Fangry, but that's it. It goes without saying for Bee and his D20 die, but I would almost really want Nemesis Primal if his fur wasn't black. I already have Kingdom Primal. I think stark white fur would look great, really kind of accentuates that evil clone counterpart concept they were going for.

I think the white fur would look awesome on Nemesis Primal also. Though I could totally go for an Ultra Primal or Primal Magnus or something along those lines in Ultra Mammoth or (preferably) Ulta Magnus colors.

Now you’re talking! Maybe we could finally get that Rodimus Primal I’ve read about before on the Wiki. Basically, if black is the main color for a character, and that doesn’t change for their evil counterpart, it’s like eh? A little purple and turquoise isn’t quite enough.

The original concept for Rodimus Primal was the Optimal Optimus mold in Rodimus Prime colors.

Ah damn, at this point only the PotP mold would work huh. That reminds me of how much of a shame it is we may never see new Transmetals or Fusors for a looong time. I still have hope for a new Silverbolt and Quickstrike.

I *think* I have that? I get confused with those black repaints in the Robot Masters line. I really need to figure out which ones I have and which ones I don't and knock out their galleries after all of these years.

Coming in hot on the heels of Decepticon Fangry, Seibertron brings us a gallery of another figure from the same Worlds Collide 4 pack, Blackarachnia! Her deco and new head might leave some of you scratching your heads, because this is not how she looked in the Beast Wars cartoon. But that's what her regular retail release in the Kingdom line was for. This release of the Predacon femme fatale is an homage to her original toy that was released in 1996. That figure was a simple redeco of Tarantulas, which looked nothing like her show model. But many Beast Wars fans may like this version of of Blackarachnia if it reminds them of the toy they had as a kid.

Seibertron captured some fantastic shots of this soon-to-be released Target exclusive, including some comparisons to the figure she's decorated to look like, shots with her Predacon brethren, her regular retail Kingdom release, and the rest of her packmates. Those hoping to do a spider leg switch with the Kingdom version will be happy to see that Seibertron has done it for you, so you can see what that'll look like.

Nope, can't really see the resemblance. In terms of paint/colour choices, it looks like a cheap Knockoff. They should have just painted it in "Fox Kids/Halloween" colours, and then called it a different character?

Grape Ape... Grape Ape

just needs a green shirt, ball cap and a bowtie.

as for the Blackarachnia, she is garish, hideous, with something of a "lady of the night" look to her, which just adds to the over all look of foogly

I love it!

Cant wait to get this set.

I was gonna say, I don't remember the original toy having a leopard print bra on, but this makes SLIGHTLY more sense.

Still looks terrible, though. The original toy is kind of ghastly colored already, this pushes it way over the top.

If you really think about it, it actually makes brilliant savage sense. The maximals are birds or mammals, with more than a few being large cats. She's wearing the skin of her enemies, as a bra.

Savage, and I must have her.

I mentioned this elsewhere in the forum, but I would have liked to have seen a little gold added to Nemesis Primal's chest to go all in on looking like Grand Scourge.

Then again, UW Grand Scourge didn't have any purple (aside from his guns) so maybe it's fine as is.

Seibertron brings us a gallery of another figure from the same Worlds Collide 4 pack, Nemesis Primal! This deco seems to be inspired by several "evil" redecos of autobot and maximal leaders. The purple is similar to Grand Scourge and Galvatron Lio Convoy. The teal however is remeniscent of the standard Scourge/Nemesis Prime colour scheme which results in something rather unique.

Seibertron captured some fantastic shots of this soon-to-be released Target exclusive, including some comparisons to his regular retail Kingdom release and the rest of his packmates. Click on any picture below to be taken to this gallery.

We also included at the very end the product code to help you find it at Target when it finally releases properly. This specific toy was found at Walmart, which is most likely a mistake as the box did not scan.

Looks like sh#t. Unfortunately, it looks too similar to the original version, due to the black ape mode. The choice of colour-mapping seems lazy/uninspired (not the actual colours, as they are par for the course with this character). Some use of metallic purple, or clear parts, etc would have been much better. In fact, this really should have been the obvious clear "Burning" (red) or "White" repaint.

With some actually well thought-out repaints, this whole set might have convinced many fans (who really just wanted Fangry) to have bought it.

It's a good set. It is obviously set up to appeal to some, and not to others. The set is literally called "WORLDS COLLIDE" meaning it's bringing in different aspects of the Transformers into one set. If I had anything to do with the set, I would have made it more bonkers.

I love Fangry. He's one of my all-time favorite Transformers characters thanks to his (unfortunately) brief, yet memorable, appearances in the Marvel Transformers comics. He's also pretty awesome in the Masterforce cartoon. Yet, because of his brief comic appearance, lack of American cartoon exposure and primary characterization coming from Japanese cartoons, he's not for everyone. I get that. He's also unique that he has a partial organic beast mode which was unusual for G1 characters (is he the only one?). I get that Fangry is not the biggest selling point. I clearly get that he's a winner for me, but not for all.

Transformers War for Cybertron: Trilogy Fangry Gallery

Then there's the recolor / remold of Netflix Bumblebee. So many fans want to get the elusive Netflix VW Bumblebee. Not gonna happen for whatever crazy reasons. Demand, corporate politics, supply chain, COVID-19, whatever. It was awesome Hasbro made the VW "Generations" Bumblebee finally after all these years and it's a bummer that so many fans weren't able to get their hands on that version of him. So here comes another version, in more expected colors for Bumblebee, but in Earthrise Cliffjumper's car mold. Ugh. I get it. I think it works for Bumblebee. The orangish-yellow of the Netflix VW Bumblebee I find hard to photograph, so I'll probably be using the Worlds Collide version mostly going forward. We'll see. I do love that Beetle mode on the other one though. Regardless, I get how this version of Bumblebee is divisive as well.

Image
Transformers War for Cybertron: Trilogy Bumblebee Gallery

On to Blackarachnia. It seems a lot of folks don't know from where the inspiration for this version of our favorite femme fatale is derived. It also seems that many fans have forgotten or are unaware that Blackarachnia didn't start out as the gold and black version with the unique face plate that we all know and love from the Beast Wars cartoon. Nope, she was just an alternate colored version of Tarantulas folks. I never thought we'd see her original color scheme ever again. And now here I am wanting to see her Masterpiece toy done in her original colors with an alternate head after her Worlds Collide release. I get that this unique version of Blackarachnia isn't for everyone.

Image
Transformers War for Cybertron: Trilogy Blackarachnia Gallery

Which leaves me with Nemesis Primal. The inevitable evil "Scourge" recolor of Optimus Primal in the Beast Wars world. The black fur is not quite right, as some of you have stated, and I agree. It'd be liked Nemesis Prime being red instead of black. To be fair, the Kingdom Optimus Primal toy isn't truly black, it's like a light black (or dark gray), but it's close enough that Nemesis Primal's black fur is a little too close to set him apart. I keep thinking a gray gorilla or even a white gorilla would've worked better to have "inverted" colors to Optimus Primal. Or they should've scrapped the whole Nemesis idea and just gone for an Ultra Primal or Primal Magnus or something along those lines and done an Optimus Primal recolor in Ultra Magnus colors (or even the dreaded, to me, "Ultra Mammoth" color scheme). Either way, I get that Nemesis Primal isn't for everyone. I like him, but I'm not sure he's even right for me when I think too hard about it.

Image
Transformers War for Cybertron: Trilogy Nemesis Primal Gallery

So there it is. It strikes me as a typical 4 pack of figures. There's a little something for everyone and a little something NOT for everyone. If there's something in the set that you don't like, just sell the damn figures you don't want. No one is forcing you to buy the set nor keep all of the figures in the set. It's a perfect set to flip certain figures if you don't want some. Regardless, it's been a few years since we've had a Generations styled multi-pack like this (I think those Titans Return sets were the last ones), and those were pretty damn cool and go for silly money now.

You win some, you lose some. I'm just happy that we are getting such crazy things that we are getting sets like this currently. Sure beats the days of seeing just one or two pegs of new Transformers Beast Wars figures at Toys R Us circa 1997 and only getting about 25 to 30 new figures per year. We are extremely spoiled currently!

Weren't the other Decepticon Headmaster Juniors done in the same style? Otherwise I think you're right :-?

Same style as what? As Worlds Collide Fangry (aka Titans Return Fangry)? No, the others were done as Titan Masters but not as regular Transformers figures unfortunately.

This whole set is a big fat pile of fail for me. The main reason, I think, was that Hasblo wanted to sell Fangry, and wanted to squeeze as much money from fans as possible, while milking existing molds in the shortest and most convenient method possible. Each and every one of these figures could have been repainted in a better and different way, and I'm sure it would have sold better. Primal, like I've said, could easily have been made as the excellent clear read "burning convoy" or the clear white version (or the other ideas mentioned above), BB could, was others have said, been that Cliffjumper (or painted in gold with a remolded head as Goldbug), or Glyph, etc.

As it is, it's a jack of all trades and master of none.

I'm not going to waste my money buying all of these figures just to get one. I shouldn't have to and I shouldn't have to go through the hassle of trying to sell the others and throw away the box (which is important for me).

An EXTREMELY easy pass for me and I'll be getting the inevitable single re-release of Fangry when it comes out.

I meant organic Beast parts of their original G1 toys :)

You do you Primalxconvoy, I think all those that buy this will be happy with their purchases :)

The galleries just won't quit this week, but boy are they nice to look at! Seibertron has been up to his photo magic again with not one or two galleries, but this time, we get a whopping FOUR galleries of recent and recent-ish figures: Worlds Collide Bumblebee; Bumblebee's highly sought after Netflix figure, in his classic VW Beetle mode, and his mold mates Hubcap and Bug Bite.

For those not familiar, Hubcap was a G1 figure released in 1986 as a simple retool of the Cliffjumper mold, with a new head and no spoiler. To add to the confusion, Cliffjumper had also previously been released in a yellow version. Bug Bite was a retooled version of G1 Bumblebee with a cartoon accurate head, released in 2004 in a set with other recolored G1 minibots in a set intended to represent the Transformers' biggest competition in the 80s, the Gobots! Bug Bite would also receive another toy at Botcon 2007. Long story short, Bug Bite, Hubcap, and Bumblebee have long shared a toy history, and now do so again in these latest galleries. You can click on any picture below to be taken to that figure's specific gallery.

For those looking for any of these toys, Hubcap can be ordered via Seibertron's own store, Bug Bite is still available at a handful of online retailers, and the Worlds Collide four-pack should be released in U.S. Target stores sometime in the next couple of weeks. Netflix Bumblebee, however, was a Walmart exclusive, and seems to be the only way we'll be getting Bumblebee in his VW Beetle mode. That Wave 2 of Netflix figures has been gone from stores for some time, and seems unlikely to be reissued any time soon, if at all. For those of you who plan on tracking down the Worlds Collide pack the UPC code is 5010993854783, and the DPCI code (Target's internal stock code) is 087-16-8265. Happy Hunting!

He's also unique that he has a partial organic beast mode which was unusual for G1 characters (is he the only one?).


Double cross also has a partial organic beast mode with his furry arms. He's the first transformer to ever have organic features.

I just thought of another group with semi-organic beast modes: the Firecons Flamefeather, Cindersaur and Sparkstalker.

Fangry is the highlight of the set for me. I think they should have given Bee racing stripes like his classics and movie toys, it would have helped set him off more from Hubcap.

Sure, even Pretenders could qualify by this, especially the ones with transforming shells.

Preadacons, TERRORIZE!

When the Beast Wars cartoon debuted in 1996, no one really knew what to expect. As the season went on, however, many were drawn in by the story and strong characterization, especially for the two characters in Seibertron's newest galleries: Predacon Leader Megatron, and Maximal protoform turned complex Predacon Blackarachnia.

While attempts have been made over the years to make more show-accurate models, this is probably the closest we've gotten, at this price point, to toys that look like they've stepped off the screen, some coloring issues aside. Both Megatron and Blackarachnia showed up in Wave 1 of Kingdom and have been among the most popular figures in the line, not staying on store shelves for long.

Now you can feast your optics on this incredible set of galleries, taken by the man himself, Seibertron. Each of the high quality galleries gives us a thorough look at the these figures, with plenty of comparison shots to relevant figures.

Check them out by clicking on any individual picture, and let us know what you think of these figures below!

Y'know, I'm a horrifically pessimistic cynic when it comes to how Hasbro decides and executes new Transformers lines. I never thought they'd deviate from G1, let alone give Beast Wars another look in. Its a good time to be a Beast Wars fan.

I find it humorous that when the Legends Blackarachnia came out, I thought it was incredible and a great representation of her. Fast forward past the Masterpiece and Kingdom version and she now looks like an easy pass. Yet I keep looking at that version of her thinking how much I used to really like that version of her.

Ah, the passage of time!

Agreed. Definitely a great time to be a Beast Wars fan. Here's hoping that a new Masterpiece Beast Wars toy is announced soon!

I look at all four of these and find each of them charming in their own ways.

That image in particular makes me think a lot. I bought a MP Blackarachnia, and really enjoyed it and thought it was worth it. I also won a free one, and sold the one I bought, essentially ending up with a free BA. Then the Kingdom one came out and honestly owns it far more than the MP, much better bang for the buck for me. So I sort of regret owning the MP despite winning it and not spending anything on it as a net result.
