Thanks to several Seibertronians for sending in this news, we now have official confirmation and reveals of Kingdom Puffer and Road Ranger!

The description given with these two has some very interesting information. It says the Golden Disk has the power to reveal past, present, and future. In alternate timelines, the quantum surge that turned Beast Wars characters into Transmetals caught up Road Ranger from his timeline, specifically calling him out as a GoBot, and describes Pipes and Huffer being caught up in another wave of quantum energy and arriving on prehistoric Earth fused together as Puffer!

Transformers News: Transformers Kingdom Golden Disk Set 1 Revealed to be Puffer and Road Ranger

These two are coming in the first of four Golden Disk sets exclusive to Amazon, with the others yet to be revealed. This set can be preordered at Amazon now, but it's currently sold out on Hasbro Pulse, though it may be restocked at a later point, as Red Alert was.

What do you think of this set? Excited to get it? Going for more GoBots to show up in the Transformers line? Hoping for more highly obscure decos to show up as new toys? Let us know what you think by sounding off in the Energon Pub forums.

Amazon and Pulse say there are 4 packs, and we had 4 listings (Terrorsaur, "Ranger/Puffer", Jackpot, & Tigatron) but this one was the only one to mention multiple figures in the listing, so if they are all multipacks then we only know at most half of each set's contents.

As did I, although the line-up we know of for these sounds way more solid to me that the GO sets were (considering half of those were either straight rereleases or new mold versions of characters I just bought in Siege).

Thank you ;)^ . But "coming soon" is a pretty generic name for the other chapters. ;)

Aren't Shattered Glass Pipes and Huffer colored like these fellas?

At least in the original Shattered Glass universe.

Road Ranger actually looks really good, I like the black and orange deco and the red windows. I am slightly annoyed that Puffer has been officially revealed before Pipes, and while Puffer is a stupid name, it's cute how they've made a fan nickname official. I won't be buying this set, but I'll definitely be getting the Terrorsaur one when the pre-order goes up. If they are all two-packs it'll be exciting to see what Terrorsaur comes with, and these sets could also potentially be where we get an Earth mode retool for Hound, wild speculation of course but I could definitely see it happening. At this point though I really really really hope that the standard retail version of Tigatron is revealed and goes up for pre-order before the Golden Disk Tigatron...

That is true, but Hasbro may choose to go a different way with Shattered Glass Wheeljack. The SG figures released so far tend to eschew the alt modes they had in the Fun Pub stories and toys and instead repaint the G1 character. SG Megatron is the exception so far with his extra kibble and alternate transformation scheme. SG Ratchet’s colors are very different too from that 2-pack last year. Who’s to say that Hasbro’s SG Wheeljack will or won’t be identical to G1 Slicer? Remember, we already have Kingdom Road Rage on the way soon. Will Hasbro skip SG Tracks altogether just because the colors have already been used or will they come up with something different? I figure Hasbro would be happy to give us new SG decos so as not to lock out other potential uses of any given mold.

It's possible that the Wheeljack silhouette in the part 2 teaser is just a placeholder so not to give away what the actual figure is. When the Galactic Odyssey sets were being revealed, the unrevealed ones all had the same generic silhouette of Bumblebee, and I think the same thing is happening here.

I like Puffer's lipless faceplate. But knowing the issues with the Huffer mold, I doubt I'll go out of my way for this set. Those hollow legs at the back, and the wafer-thin 'feet', make him a one-time-only purchase in the form of Huffer.

Nice try, Hasbro. But how about making more of the rare figures you DIDN'T produce enough of (like Siege Greenlight, Sky Lynx, etc.) instead of repainting the ones that are still choking shelves?

Actually, I think this reveal along with the packaging show us the other 3 may end up being single figures, or figures with extras. Look at the photo of the 4 packages making up the golden disc. This set is by far the largest box by area on the side they are using. I would expect the others to be single figures, but possibly with extras.

Interesting though awkward. If he's supposed to be Gobot Road Ranger, then he should have a red cab. I never had G1 Prime asa kid, so I always used Road Ranger as my Prime.

Anybody got any pre-order links for these?

Unfortunately, looking at them altogether now I fear you may be correct. I've ordered many Selects, and the size of the deluxe box has been the same since the first 2 (Riccochet & red Swoop) in 2019. However with the Cenution Drone last year, and Tricranius this year, we see they can add a whole accessories pack, and still not change the size of the box. The box for deluxes could *technically* be smaller. I would not be surprised if we saw that change occur starting with any future Selects after WFC is done.

But the first box (bottom right) is defintely the biggest. The 2 on the left will be deluxes, and the one on top-right will be the Voyager. Oh well...so much for these all being multi-packs :(

What if Tigatron is actually our missing Nightprowler? We know from the Amazon AU listing that at some point Nightprowler was meant to be paired with Sideswipe and the price was originally the same as the Mirage and Grimlock until they corrected it meaning it was priced for one Deluxe and one Voyager so it's possible that Nightprowler was meant to be a Voyager Tigatron repaint instead of Deluxe Cheetor. And honestly I'd rather have a new character than an old character in different colors any day. I'm probably wrong, it'll probably be orange, but I really want to be right this time.

Ratchet was a Selects though, not part of the proper Shattered Glass line. Everyone in the SG line has had accurate color schemes down to Blurr's lightning tats, just on the mold of their G1 self, so I'd be surprised if Wheeljack was the one deviation from that.

Wolfman Jake wrote:Remember, we already have Kingdom Road Rage on the way soon. Will Hasbro skip SG Tracks altogether just because the colors have already been used or will they come up with something different?
I think they're gonna skip SG Tracks because of not only that, but also the fact that SG was basically just a panel-filler goon for Magnus that never did anything notable or memorable. Wheeljack, Blurr, Ratchet, etc. at least got to do stuff within their various appearances that would drive interest in new ones, Tracks seems a bit too unimportant to be considered for this (especially when compared to some of their other remaining options like Grimlock, Rodimus, & Sideswipe).

It really comes down to which is more accurate, that picture (which could potentially be a placeholder like the Wheeljack pic) or the fact that all of the language in these set descriptions matches how they described the GO sets, which were all multiple figures.

As someone who also wants you to be right: why would the listing just call it Tigatron then?

Name recognition? I mean they couldn't even let Puffer be his own character without a convoluted back story. Plus there's also the negative connotations of "night prowler" which is often synonymous with murder and rape.

...but if they could use the Nightprowler name in the listing for the Sideswipe one, shouldn't that mean that connotations aren't an issue? And even though yeah, they came up with the fusion backstory for Puffer, it's not like that's on the box anywhere, you'd only get that info if you read that description. To the uninformed Amazon shopper who sees the listing, it's just a new character named Puffer. Having one of the exclusives be called "Nightprowler Tigatron" or something as it's name in the listing and on the box, on the other hand, would eliminate some of those potential customers who would see the listing and say "Whoever I'm buying this for already has a Tigatron, don't need this", as opposed to if they just named it Nightprowler and then had the product description say he used to be Tigatron or whatever.

In other news, someone figured out where the Wheeljack silhouette is from, and wouldn't you know it it's the same image the Bee and Sideswipe ones were from:
Placeholder source.jpg
So Wheeljack confirmed to be a placeholder, in case that was still in question.

the Gobots rights are fickle but hasbro have like 90%

but they don't have rights for the challenge of the Gobots tv series that's warner brothers and they don't have rights to the original toys they still belong to bandai

which is one the reasons the 2004 gobots are different colours etc

oh the quagmire

Using Nightprowler on a listing so early the figure didn't even show up in the box doesn't necessarily mean they were going to keep the name to the end either, it just means the character was planned at some point. I'm not saying it'll happen, just saying don't be surprised if it does since everyone seems to think Tigatron will either be orange or pure white (or a Ravage repaint, but I don't think he alone fits the price point).

I preordered the pair, they look neat! Road Ranger has sharp colors, and Puffer's story plus an IDW Pipes head just add icing to the cake. Puffer will gladly chill with Tigerhawk!
