Greetings Seibertronians! Thanks to fellow Seibertron users, Dominus Prime and -WonkoTheSane-, we've learned that Takara Tomy have shared new images, and new uses for Deluxe Class Fossilizer Paleotrex!

The first tweet shows off Paleotrex's robot mode and it's alt mode.

The second tweet shows Paleotrex's mask gimmick, harking back to the mutant masks of the first Beast Wars toys (while also referencing Optimus Primal's skull mace from his Ultra Class incarnation)

The third tweet, shows off all the components that make up Paleotrex, and two combinations, done with Voyager Class Optimus Primal and Netflix Transformers Deluxe Class Impactor!

These are only the tip of the iceberg regarding the combinations that will be possible using this Fossilizer, something that is multiplied if you factor in Sieges Weaponizers and Earthrise's Modulators into the equation.

Paleotrex's Japanese number is KD EX- 01 as he will be an exclusive on those shores, despite being regular retail everywhere else.

What do you think of these new possible combinations? Are you adding Paleotrex to the ranks of your Predacons? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Looks like Primal is ready to play some Guitar Hero. :lol: Paleotrex is quickly becoming one of my most anticipated for Kingdom, but I think he'll work much better as armor/weapons for BW than original series bots.

As I stated a few pages back, the Knights of Unicron beg to differ ;) they'll look proper metal wearing Paleotrex and his friends!

"i'm going to beat you with a dinosaur corpse" is a pretty brutal sentence.

I didn't get Weaponizers or uhh, Rampolizers but I might get the Fossilizers. I'm liking the way they turned out.

SDCC 2014 Exclusives Knights of Unicron.

Thinking about it, you started collecting again during Combiner Wars? Which was the year after these debuted. So thats probably why you've not heard of them :-?

Paleotrex is one of the few Transformers that I'd but at least two. I could make some WILD things! :michaelbay:

I can't believe I only just now saw the similarities; anyone else remember this short-lived Kenner toyline?

And now I just keep hearing Headmaster screaming, "BONEAGE! TOTAL BONEAGE!"

It might be just me, but even since the first time i saw paleotrex, i always feels like his robot legs looks a bit too short compared to his overall body proportion.

Yes! Though I only remember it for the commercial, I don't remember ever actually seeing them in stores.



And yeah, definitely see the similarities now that you've brought it up.

Not sold on robot mode...and a skeleton as alt mode just seems creepy...

But oh man, that sword mode will look KILLER on Volcanicus. Could even be used as armor of some sort I bet...sorta like the Prime Beast Hunter armors.

As long as the figures have the right 5mm ports, then as long as you can imagine it, you can do it! :D

I think Beast rib cage = bot legs is a strange design choice. Makes the proportions of the legs look odd. I like the head sculpt though and the appropriation of Primal's mace design.

I was thinking the other day about such characters as Ironworks and how they represent the best utilised potential of this WFC line. If only Beast Wars had an equivalent for Kingdom to likewise refine :-?

Meh... I mean, I had that spider thingie as a kid and I had a blast with it at that time. From a certain point of view, this whole Transformers thing is a gimmicky kids toy concept that they somehow sprinkled magic dust on and it all "worked". I think someone creative enough could at least do a brand new concept and homage these crazy items. Very creative, mind you.

Tut, tut, tut.

In the case of Orcanoch, they don't have to get that creative. As a Killer Whale adaptation already exists...

As I said, if they can make a decent figure out of Ironworks. They can for any of the "bases".
