Lots of Transformers War for Cybertron Kingdom news out today, most of which came from Hasbro's PulseCon 2020.

One of the big highlights is a poster for the War for Cybertron Kingdom toy line showing the Titan Class Ark transformed into robot mode (which appears to have the Last Autobot's head design from the last issues of the Marvel Transformers comic books! You can see the images below, it was shared in Seibertron.com's screen capture gallery of the Hasbro PulseCon 2020 videos.

I wouldn't take the entire poster as a proof that all these characters are coming out though since this is probably concept art, before the toyline was finalized. Polar Claw, for instance, is not said to be part of the line, according to those who know what's coming.

We also have new packaging. while the boxes retain the same shape as the previous entries in the trilogy, the window component is made smaller, to minimize plastic. Of course, we can still see the figure inside though.

Rumor has it that his figure was cancelled so I wouldn't get too excited.

No [listed] Rodimus or G1 Megatron in that image either. Curious :-?

That's a nice piece of artwork, I'm tempted to set it as my desktop background. The inclusion of Polar Claw had me excited, but it'll be a shame if a new figure of Polar Claw has been cancelled like a few have said. I hope those sabre-toothed tiger and crocodile Fossilizers haven't been axed too. Also, can anyone tell who the pink and blue robot is in the far background behind Polar Claw and Vertebreak? It looks like Micromaster Barricade.

So Cheetor has his Quasar Cannon in the artwork but not with the actual figure? :roll:

Oh man I am so hyped for Galvatron! The Universe figure is ok, and don’t get me started on the Titans Return Galvs, but this is what we’ve been waiting for! That and the fact he’ll have a proper Cyclones and Scourge FROM THE SAME LINE. Oh man :DANCE:

The Ark's shoulders and head remind me of Cybertron Primus.

Is it 100% confirmed that Gears and Polar Claw were cut? It'd be a shame.

Well Scourge will be in Studio Series 86 but yeah, thats on purpose that you'll find all three on shelves in a movie Anniversary year.

Gears! I have been waiting for a proper Gears for over 30 years, as he was my very first figure ever given to me by my parents as a small child. Man, I hope this artwork signals what is coming. That titan class Ark looks interesting too.

It will be interesting to see how the smaller/core fossilizers work (if they demonstrated it in the live video my apologies I missed it). Also Titan Ark in the splash page looks great. I know some people are saying it looks like the Last Autobot, for some reason I am getting Cybertron Vector Prime vibes (and this from someone who really wasn't into the Unicron trilogy, I'd be ok with it). It would explain the time paradox after all ;).

Still no hints or tease at the Commander Class?

What was revealed overall looks good. I'll definitely be buying less toys this years than in previous ones, but that doesn't mean they are bad toys, just not in my wheelhouse of collecting at the moment.

As far as today's reveals, Kingdom is looking good so far. I'm definitely buying Optimus Primal, Megatron, Cheetor, Rattrap and Blackarachnia, but I'm not completely sold on the Fossilizers and I'll probably skip Warpath and Cyclonus. I'm surprised Studio Series 1986 wasn't officially announced here, and that nothing has been officially said about Earthrise Bluestreak, Runabout or Thrust, but all in all I'd say it was a good reveal.

Thanks for featuring my pics! Though sheer happenstance, I somehow ended up with those first three figures... Honestly, I'm just as surprised as you guys.

Here's a video review of Blackarachnia, in case anyone's inclined! (^.^')



Here are some pictures of the Kingdom figures compared with their vintage originals:
