Welcome Seibertronians! Today, we bring you a video review of Kingdom core class Dracodon from YouTube reviewer [IdArmed].

Dracodon is a neon-green redco of the previously released Vertebreak, transforming from a robot to a skeletal Dracorex. It is worth noting that Dracodon is being released as a Maximal, whereas Vertebreak was a Predacon. The deco is the only change between these figures, as there is no new tooling. Dracodon is part of Kingdom's wave 3 assortment of core class figures, and will release later this summer alongside Soundwave.

The video review is embedded below for your viewing convenience. Check it out!



What do you think of Dracodon? Is the mew deco good enough to get you to double dip on this mold? Let us know in the Energon Pub forums!

It's just Starscream.

What show is that meme from? It's on the tip of my tongue.

There are parts of this that look good, but overall, not enough for me to get him.
I'm a little surprised they didn't make the sword fit under the vehicle pointed in the other direction...
Not that the handle looks that much like an exhaust pipe, but that's better than a random silver "fin" sticking out from the bottom.
And I get it, the trailer will cover that up when combined. But still... Seems a little odd.


Hot Rod/Rodimus even in the MP line has never had a face that suits the character. Give me something that's a little more "Jubliant."

But Rodimus Prime wasn't a very jubilant character...even in the end speech of the movie, he wasn’t that happy. Hot Rod was happy go lucky, rodimus has the world on his back


First episode of season 3, when he opened the galactic games? Ultra Magnus had to scold him a little.

It was peacetime. The war had finally ended so he had a brief moment to relax and be happy... until the war started right back up again when the Quints soon showed up and Galvatron returned. His happiness in that moment was circumstantial.

On a tangent, I can't believe nobody noticed this:

Look at the bottom two languages. Something's missing...

Right??? How did the packaging designers not realize they were using a font that's missing special characters? The last language is portuguese, and the second to last one is spanish. The missing letter on both is "ú". It's driving me crazy, it HAS to be a problem with the font because it's like that on every package.

Emgo has mentioned it on a few of his videos. Some of the languages had a special character that didn't print for some reason on some of the package descriptions

I wouldn't say "some reason" as there is a very specific reason lol whoever created the font did not include special characters.

you think they're afraid of... getting called out on Twitter for... including accented characters in the font used for the size class designation on the side of the box?

A Japanese gamer was banned from the Apex Legend tournament for saying the word "run away" in Japanese: Nigero.
Like I said the activists and easily offended love to look for anything "offensive" everywhere to get power and clout. So the "censored" word on the side of the box could have been left like that on purpose to avoid any backlash from those idiots.

I sincerely hope that's not that and it's instead the usual laziness of including accents in non-english languages. We live in a society after all. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm pretty sure it was an overnight. I mean I'm not technically savvy at all, but I do have a respect for language. Just because my keyboard dosen't have accented characters from other alphabets, I know how to look them up online. Such as Peña (a common Spanish name). Just a copy/Paste.

I'm sure Hasbro could have picked a font that recognized any character. As hard as it is to believe an oversight like that made it all the way to final product, I find it even harder to believe it was done purposefully.

The "ñ" character can also be typed by pressing the "Alt" key followed by "164" on the number pad, just in case anyone was curious haha

What you're proposing is patently ludicrous and absurd. "Núcleo" neither looks nor sounds anything like the word you're talking about. It probably is, as many have already said, just an oversight. The proof for this lies in the fact that the same error happened to the Leader class packages, which in spanish and portuguese would be "líder". A word which was properly spelt in the previous WFC lines.

On a less stupid and more graphic-design-interested note, this points to them having used a font that had no special characters, then just photoshopping the tildes in, right? Because the font hasn't changed from subline to subline.

less about rattraps packaging and more on Rattrap. I bought my son Rattrap, soon as I took him out of the packaging his left arm felt really loose compared to the right arm. Anyone else notice this? Other than how loose it is, it's on there well enough to not fall off.

If Dracodon had been done more like Skelevore and Tricranium with black and translucent parts, I'd be down for it- toxic sludge dino? Count me in! As it stands, eh. Looks a bit monochromatic and I'm fine with my Vertebreak.

Hey Seibertronians! What's up! Today we got some new shots of the upcoming KD-13 Rhinox from the WFC:Kingdom line courtesy of Dengeki Hobby! If you missed out or passed on the previous release in the Generations line, you'll soon get a second chance coming up! We've got a couple of shots of both his robot and rhino modes!

He looks like a nice update and honestly like a better version than the previous generations release from a few years ago, so this October you can pick up a replacement or get him for the first time if you missed out before!

Sure it had its Emo moments, but overall I remember Rodimus Prime being a little lighter in personality.
