With the release of Transformers War for Cybertron Kingdom toys just around the corner, I thought I'd try to finish up a few more galleries of figures from the first wave this past weekend. Special thanks to the Transformers brand team at Hasbro for sending us early copies of Kingdom last month.

Next up to get the Seibertron.com extensive gallery treatment is none other than Kingdom Voyager Class K-8 Optimus Primal. The Maximal leader gets what might arguably be the best representation of him released at regular retail to date. Hasbro and Takara Tomy really outdid themselves with this amazing action figure. While keeping with scale, Optimus Primal is a tad smaller than most Voyagers. However, what he lacks in size he more than makes up with features and posability. In addition to his iconic shaped swords, he also features his shoulder cannons and forearm cannons as well. While his robot mode harkens back to his Beast Wars cartoon look, his beast mode is a more realistic gorilla appearance this time around. It is a fantastic update to a much beloved character.

Optimus Primal and the rest of War for Cybertron Kingdom are due to be released in the near future at retail. Some of these products should arrive at the Seibertron Store later this week. You can also pre-order Kingdom products at online stores like Amazon.com as well as our various advertisers.

Will you be adding Optimus Primal to your collection? Are you a big fan of Beast Wars and are excited to see the Maximals and Predacons return to the main retail line? Share your thoughts about Primal and the other Kingdom galleries on our forums here.

Never collected Beast Wars, so these particular remakes don't really tempt me. More for other collectors!

Oh, so the sword grips, DON'T have to stick out in gorilla mode, contrary to every pic of this toy I've seen until now. Maybe I should have just cared enough to look harder before, but still, thanks for clearing that up, Seib!

Not that I needed any persuading to buy this entire line, possibly twice over to give to my younger relatives...and maybe kids of longtime friends I bonded with over BW...

Just got Warpath, Cheetor, Blackarachnia, and Paleotrex today.. first thing that hit me was the lack of the plastic shell that Siege and Earthrise had, instead they were just plastic tied to the cardboard backing; wonder why that is.

The figures themselves are decent, with Warpath being the best of the 4 imo. They just don't fit well with each other, and that's a shame after the previous 2 lines of WFC figures

That makes sense, thanks!

Does that mean Masterpiece are going to get the same treatment?

Nothing has been said that he can't be there later in a darker color. But that would be even stranger. A toy accurate purple over the animation accurate lavender? A non animation accurate re-deco in an animation accurate line of so far new molds?


I would disagreee that that color is accurate. Just watched some G1 Season 3 last night while cropping photos. It looks darker to me. It seems to depend on which episode you're talking about and even which scene. I'm not a fan of the lighter lavender and prefer the darker coloring.

In the movie, though, which is what you're trying to shoehorn him into the toyline it's being repped by, he was the lighter purple.

Now, that said, while I don't see them putting him into Studio Series, I can certainly see them rereleasing this mold at some point in some other capacity. One of my favorite shots in your gallery was the one with Nightstick (where he was also the darker purple in Rebirth). There's a possibility right there for you.

It's interesting to see many of the more prevalent Youtube reviewers are getting the wave 1 deluxes at the same time as some of us who pre-ordered them (it's nice to feel more even availability for once). Of course those who are waiting for retail stores, are still going to have to wait, I get it. But the odd thing is, they all seem to be doing the same thing. If they favor the original series they review Warpath First. If they favor BW they review BA & Cheetor first. But Poor Paleotrex.... Probably a mix of both because he is the highest numbered (K7), and also because he is a Brand New character he is getting relegated to last review for pretty much all of them. I guess it is all about views... But for me Paleotrex was the ONLY toy from Wave 1 I picked up. I really like the others, but they just don't quite fit into my collection, and every once in a while something new and fascinating comes along and Paleotrex is it. I hope he becomes a breakout star (no pun intended) of the first wave despite the fact that a real personna has yet to be developed for him.

The next toys from the upcoming Transformers War for Cybertron Kingdom line to get the gallery treatment are WFC-K7 Paleotrex and WFC-K3 Vertebreak.

Deluxe Class Paleotrex is a Fossilizer, similar in functionality to the Siege Weaponizers (which become accessories and weapons that are compatible with other Transformers). His alternate mode is the fossilized bones of a Tyrannosaurus rex. Core Class Vertebreak, while her alternate mode is a fossilized dinosaur that resembles a Dracorex, is not a Fossilizer.

Both figures are part of first wave of War for Cybertron Kingdom products which will be available at brick-and-mortar retail soon and have already begun showing up at online retail.

Are you thinking of adding these two unique Transformers to your collection? Share your thoughts about Paleotrex and Vertebreak as well as the rest of the Kingdom toys in our topic here.
