We thank Nuclearxpotato for letting us know that there is a video review for Transformers Kingdom Wingfinger made by Tonton. This is a deluze figure from the third wave due on shelves in around 3 months from now. This is the final fossilizer mold we are getting for this line. It has a combiner head, different from the robot head, meant to be used in a combined mode with the previous two fossilizers. Let us know if you will be getting him.

He should be skinny. He's a ninja, after all.

When has something like that stopped a reviewer from complaining? I'm glad they're a thin bone being. The rest of the Fossilizers have added some much needed body-shape diversity.

Also I hadn't noticed until now that Wingfinger reuses the robot legs of Paleotrex.

If we're being anatomically correct, Wingfinger is actually female. As I understand it, females of the pterosaur species (or pteranodon, I forget which is the correct word) have noticeably smaller head crests than males, so really, she is a ninja.

The problem is that Hasbro said he was a he in their product bio but, that's only an issue if you stick to what they say ;)

It's not the thinness in robot mode that bugs me...I just can't figure out how Wingfinger can fly with those "wings!"

When the Earthrise line was launched, I confess that I was disappointed that they did not launch any Dinobot. But since the first Fossilizer was shown, I loved the concept. The fossils are directly linked to the origin of the Dinobots (in the episode SOS Dinobots, in the cave and in the museum) as to some characters from Beast Wars (who scan buried fossils), in addition to the fact that the Fossilizers are extremely creative, allowing for several different combinations and assemblies . It was a big hit by Hasbro, which went beyond the conventional and gave us something really new and interesting. ;)^

Tigatron and Waspinator scanned female beast modes too, yet they're both still male.

It's also a nice nod to the early days of paleonthology, when scientists barely knew what they were doing when rearranging the dino bones.

Although the field has made some advancement, any honest Paleontologist will admit they STILL today barely know what they are doing.

Greetings Seibertronians!
Once again, Prime VS Prime deliver with an early Kingdom video review!

This time, it is for Deluxe Class Scorponok from the classic Beast Wars series! Scorponok is part of Deluxe Wave 3 that will be hitting store shelves along with Fossilizer Wingfinger, a repack of Earthrise Wheeljack and Tracks!

He come with a look that closely resembles the original show but with a modern interpretation of it.

Are you planning to pick this guy up?
Let us know!

way too short for my liking and something just looks off about the robot head. Could see it being reused for seaclamp or ciccadon but doubt they could work combining into it.

I think after watching the review I'm leaning towards passing on this guy. He's mostly solid but I'm just not sold. Maybe if they retool him into sandstorm with the mutant head later on.

I wish there had been a core class comparison, since he's so short maybe he'd be a good opponent to rattrap

Wow - how do some people get these things so dang EARLY? Do they have access to the factory floor or something? The rest of us casual reviewers have to wait for general release - there is no justice! ;)

Pretty sure we’ve gotten several confirmations that this kid does NOT steal these, he’s partnered with Hasbro.
