We have two pieces of Transformers WFC Kingdom news for you today. Firstly, Ton Ton's review of deluxe Blackarachnia came out. While some are equating this to a budget masterpiece, it can also look like your standard deluxe with your standard amount of paint and a beast mode that looks worse than the Masterpiece version. You'll let us know which way you gravitate when describing the figure.

We also have what could be our first glimpse at the Titan Class ark toy that will be released in the Kingdom line. We see it in ark mode and we see Teletraan 1. The image comes from Marco Madrys.



We thank fellow seibertronians Wonko-the-sane, Sabrblade, Dominus Prime and Sol magnus for informing us of these two awesome pieces of news.

i think an ark would be cool but i think it would be hard to display on a shelf with the other figures
maybe hang it from the ceiling and also they should do the nemisis as well

In TonTon's review, it seems that Blackarachnia has a swappable(?) facemask:

based on the standard face of the Blackarachnia/Tarantulas mold that was never used in media, since the show gave Tarantulas the mutant head and made up a new head for Blackarachnia:

I hope the Ark can transform. But dang it’s a bit of a let down compared to other titans so far

Black Arachnia looks incredible. I especially like the mutant mask (and hope it stays for the final figure).

Conversely, the Ark will need to be INCREDIBLE for me to get it. At this poiint I've accepted that it won't be Animated Omega, so hey, at least the $150 that would have gone to the titan can go to the Beast Warriors :lol:

Ah god that Spider mode is a tad too realistic for me, I have a major Spider phobia so I can't add her to my collection, as much as I like how the show and how these Beast Wars figures look I'm thinking of skipping them anyways and I don't want to start a collection and not finish it, to me there is no point in having a Beast Wars collection based off the show but not having Blackarachnia and Tarantulas (if he comes out) in said collection.

I might still get Cheetor if only because of Cyberverse since I didn't get the Cyberverse Cheetor figures.

The current rumor is that the Ark will have a Last Autobot/Vector Prime-inspired robot mode.

For anyone wondering why Blackarachnia doesn't have the well known hourglass-shaped marking on her alt mode, it is accurate to the real-world spider. Black widows have some variation of a three spot pattern on the topside of the abdomen, just like this toy. The hourglass marking is instead on the underside of the abdomen, where you'll only find arms on BA.

Pretty much confirms that real-world accuracy is the priority for the beast modes of Kingdom, if it wasn't obvious with Rattrap and Cheetor.

Definitely digging that blackarachnia. I actually digging the spider mode, and the robot mode looks good too, with a pretty wide range of articulation. Also, her backpack seems the most compact among wfc fembot molds so far.

Wow! It's a good thing that Kingdom Blackarachnia comes with a second face, because she's just blown mine clear off! :lol:

That is a great looking figure in robot mode, though more paint apps can always help. Maybe they'll sneak her into the Netflix line too like Cheetor? The spider mode is good for a Deluxe Class toy. I accept the yellow robot parts just hanging out under the abdomen. The Masterpiece version didn't do any better (and may have done worse, in fact). I can even overlook her butherface her butt face in spider mode. I can't wait to see Optimus Primal now.

Have we had any rumors of a new Scorponok? I know Tarantulas, Inferno, and Terrorsaur haven't had anything, but I can't remember if Scorponok's had anything

He was among the Deluxe listings when JTprime17 leaked the rest of the Deluxe listings back on like August 20th or 21st.

Not sure why real world animals are the focus for kingdom when wfcs vehicles weren't realistic for the majority. Black arachnia def looks better in some ways over the masterpiece but the fangs don't quite work and it's a bit of a let down the gun not contributing to her beast form or being a functioning Grapple. The paint on the gun kinda looks similar to what some of the paint she is lacking on her bot mode so dunno if they will netflix it or another telemocha version at some point. The mutant head wooop very happy and it's kind of weird that they include it for her and not cheetor (maybe just the predacons will have them? or just her). Her lower waist in bot mode looks better than mp too. Def buy, just a shame cheetor won't be and not having a complete team is going to be noticeable :(

The only way to display the Ark is by papermacheing some mountains to have it sticking out of. Robot mode will be wasted on it for me (unless it was animated omega).

This actually isn't the mutant head Blackarachnia has, it's the "normal" head of the original BA/Tarantulas mold; the mutant head is what they used for Tarantulas in the show, and Blackarachnia's show head was made up.
