Greetings Seibertronians! YouTube reviewer PrimeVsPrime is back at it with another video review, this time for the Generations: War for Cybertron Deluxe WFC-K39 Tricranius Beast Power Fire Blasts Collection pack!

Tricranius is a retool of Kingdom deluxe class Ractonite, with a new frill and horns to make the dino mode resemble a skeletal Triceratops. The figure also sports a fiery, molten lava-themed deco. The main draw for many fans, however, are the many blast effects that Tricranius comes with. 19 total blast effects are included in red and blue colors. Fans have been clamoring for a blast effects pack ever since the start of the War for Cybertron trilogy, so there has been considerable excitement for this release. The pack is currently available on Hasbro Pulse for $29.99.

PrimeVsPrime's review is embedded below for your convenience.



What do you think of Tricranius? Is he cooler than Ractonite? Are you excited to finally be getting a blast effects pack? Let us know in the Energon Pub forums!

I picked up Huffer the other day, and I have to say he's pretty nice. Not perfect, but still really fun to mess with. Hoping the Pipes retool gets different accessories, but honestly if he doesn't I'm fine with it. I know that part of his leak was he'd have two fusion cannon style weapons like the cartoon/comic, but I hope we get more weapons than just that

Amazon is playing musical ship dates again. After the wave 3 deluxes were moved up to arriving today earlier this week, Airrazor is now pushed back to May 7-12 and Ractonite pushed back to May 14-21. Huffer says he's arriving today, but hasn't shipped yet, so who know on him.

If it wasn't for the $16.99 price, they would just be cancelled.

My Ractonite says it'll be here by 10pm today, but hasn't actually shipped out. My Airrazor and Ultra Magnus actually have shipped out and I got a notice from UPS that they'll arrive today. No idea why they're so inconsistent.

Yep, who knows, Huffer did finally ship, which was odd since he was ordered later than the other 2 that were delayed. In any case, I'm just waiting for all 3 to arrive so I can return them to Walmart for full price.

I got Huffer today. I've been getting a deluxe a day since yesterday. Raconite is tommorow.

Nice, my Ractonite is in Pulse limbo. Hopefully he'll come soon

Man you guys are getting these late. Sure, I havent seen some of those 86 deluxes in stores, so I have my own issues, but man I thought these were out for everyone for a while now.

Anyways, Wheeljack being a wave 3 repack made me remember something I keep thinking about. My kids are watching the g1 show and I listen to the covid news and.. Wheeljack sounds just like Dr Fauchi.

Well, I did just order him like 2 days ago after he'd been in stock for a while (though I've been waiting for him at BBTS for a while, so I guess it still counts)

Ah that makes more sense :) Well, let us know what you think. I feel I'm in a minority on thinking Ractonite blows but I find that odd. I think he's objectively a really weak design with being the first deluxe in the WFC trilogy to not have proper hands with fist holes.

Many others were simple waiting on Amazon taking their sweet time delivering wave 2. Due to Gamestop's weird pricing and Amazon's price match policy, many of us got them at $16.99.

As for Ractonite, I don't think he blows, but the hands are definitely a bit disappointing. Fore some reason, I just love his chunky bot mode (aside from the hands). I sort of feel the same way about Ractonite as I did with Siege Megatron when he was first out (way before the mold was used to death). Not bad, but could/should have been better.

I was amazingly able to see wave 2 deluxes at Walmart about a month ago, so I cancelled my Amazon pre-orders. I've seen mixed opinions on Ractonite, I see several who are disappointed with the seemingly unfinished hands. I don't mind, it's a pretty solid toy. But if I'm being honest, now that I know that a combiner mode exists, once I get them all, that is now they will stay displayed. Since the demonstrator was holding the figure, I just hope it holds up under it's own weight/proportions.

Do you think Wheeljack will become a dark horse thirst trap just like Dr. Fauci? :lol:

Normally I order the figures from an online store and would've had them already. They were sold out so I had to wait for Amazon, who has been getting everything late lately.

so anyone with huffer, is he just poorly designed or what? his cab section seems perpetually stuck looking up, I think it has something to do with the slots that tab into the arms being to big, whatever it is, it really lets the figure down, his bot mode is ok, but it doesn't really save it for me, since I'm not really attached to him at all

The cab on my Huffer looks pretty straight to me...

maybe you lucked out, but if his legs tab into his pelvis, then the truck mode gets scrunched, I've seen several reviewers have this problem, chefatron addresses it the most

The slope of where the grey truck bed/foot panel meets the yellow shin creates an optical illusion that makes the truck look bent when viewed from the side. Having the gun railings attached helps some, but the illusion is still there.

no there's definitely a design flaw with the tabs for the arms, if you hold the cab parallel to the ground, the rear wheels don't touch the ground

I didn't experience that flaw in the design. My main issue was the visible hands that the renders hid.
