Fellow Seibertronian Wonkothesane has told us of some nice new images of the anticipated Beast Wars figures we are getting soon:

The 'Hobbymizer Studio' Facebook page has posted new stock photos of the upcoming Kingdom Optimus Primal, Cheetor, And Rattrap figures. Optimus Primal is shown close up and from multiple angles we haven't seen before.


Fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade shared that those photos are found on the TTMall product pages where they can be preordered for Japanese fans. We learn there that Paleotrex is a TTMall exclusive in Japan.

Arm cannons on BOTH arms? Nice.

Definitely picking up Prime and Cheetor, they'll go great with Generations Rhinox. Will probably skip Rattrap just because I already have the Generations version, but he looks like a decent version if you didn't pick that up earlier.

Now I just need to see a new Dinobot to complete the original five...

I like the figures well enough, and Primal's robot mode is great, but is it just me or is the face on the ape mode just too off? Like he has a pout/defiant look that I don't remember him having in the entire run of the show?

Eh, he's just tired of Rattrap and Dinobot being at each other's throats.
I'm more concerned about the lower abdomen on Boss Monkey as I still can't tell if it is supposed to be a mis-transformed rump, or he's taking a few design ques from Heinrad. The furry portion there just seems so out of place and hanging down awkwardly.

I am going to find a way to get the big purple dino though. I'm loving how realistic they're making him. I'm also curious on how the rumored Dinobot will look.

It's trying to be more like a realistic gorilla face instead of based on the cartoon model.

That Cheetor is an easy pass for me. I don't really like his beast head's moustache. That Primal and Rattrap though I need.

I had similar concerns about Primal, but it seems it's more realistic/accurate once I viewed real photos of gorillas. It's not exact, but it's not the King Kong style that the Beast Wars cartoon had.

Which it appears that his lower adbdomen hair is absent from his character model and subsequent toys, but I can't find a real world precedence for that yet, which I've never known until now.

But why? Isn't the toyline supposed to be accurate to the onscreen characters? (Even if apparently the character model isn't accurate.) Does the MP figure have the hairy torso?

Kingdom's goal is realistic beast modes, accurate robot modes, unlike with the G1 guys where it's accuracy for both modes

See, even Takara Tomy can mistransform things every now and then (bot hands are exposed).

And am I the only one that finds this a little horrifying?

Image

Something about a robot covered in bones feels a little gory, even knowing it's a robot in the shape of bones. I wonder how parents will feel about it?

Feels more like Hoist is trying to join/start a heavy metal band...Which I'm down for (hey hasbro how about another whack at the Knights of Unicron band include enough Fossilizers for the whole band to get dressed up!)

Rattrap and Cheetor are a huge "meh" for me. The hollow parts that are in-your-face aint doing any favor. But that Optimus Primal, now what a beauty! I'll be sure to get him and Megs.

No, the goal seems to simply bring the beast characters back for a new generation.
And the MP did not have hair on its belly, since the goal of that line is screen accuracy.

Lol, see, you can learn things from playing with toys.

Question for the forum: how would you compare contrast purchases / preorders / memberships between TFsource and BigBadToyStore? Prices look the same, I see this Pile of Loot feature on BBTS, I see "source points" on TFsource, but it's not obvious to me which might be "better" or which one I might prefer over the other. Does anyone on here have a preference for one over the other? (Am I asking this in the wrong thread btw?)

I use BBTS more because they have good costumer service and use tfsoure as back up if I can't get from BBTS

I use both and have had good experience with both. The Pile of Loot feature at BBTS is very helpful and TFSource has their own equivalent called the Stack that basically functions the same way. The one thing I prefer with TFSource over BBTS is that TFSource has free shipping on orders at $150 or higher, while BBTS has a $4 flat rate shipping option that still charges me extra on the order's tax since I live in a state that BBTS charges tax on orders. So with TFSource's order stacking, I can get free shipping if I bundle together enough purchases in my Stack to equal $150, whereas with BBTS they add the tax cost to the $4 shipping cost so that I always end up paying more than just the $4 shipping price.

I just realized: None of the listings say that Black Arachnia comes with an alternate faceplate. Which means that it's designed for a different character, but who else could they get from that mold? It doesn't look anything like Tarantulas' headsculpt, so is it for a SELECTS figure?

Of course, the tax doesn't apply with every state. Users on here have mentioned that they aren't charged any tax and get to pay only the $4 shipping on any and all of their BBTS orders.
