Greetings Seibertronians! Thanks to the hard work of fellow Seibertron user, and toy reviewer, Chuckdawg1999, you can now feast your eyes on a video review of the first three releases in the new Core Class, hitting store shelves next year as part of the Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Kingdom line! The first wave includes, Rattrap, Optimus Prime and Vertebreak!

Here's Chucks take on the wave:

That's not all, fellow Seibertron user, Bone Age has shared a separate video review of Core Class Vertebreak that they found by YouTube toy reviewer, Tef Tef. Again we have embedded the review below for your convenience:

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, Sabrblade, has informed us that Takara Tomy have taken to Twitter again to share some new photos of the forthcoming Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Kingdom Leader Class Beast Wars Megatron figure! Contrary to the images we last seen from Takara Tomy, these new ones show Megatron in the correct colours. While the first two photos just show Megatron on his own, the last two show a throw down between the two leaders of the Beast factions: Megatron vs Voyager Class Optimus Primal!

Check out the images below!

Both Leader Class Beast Wars Megatron and Voyager Class Optimus Primal are set to be released next year as part ofbthd first wave of Transformers Kingdom toys. Alongside Primal, we'll see a release of Cyclonus and alongside Megatron will be a re-release of Earthrise Leader Class Optimus Prime (now sporting Kingdom packaging).

What do you think of these new images? Did you breathe a sigh of relief that the colours before weren't correct? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

So... Vertebreak is not really a Fossilizer then. He cannot be taken apart, nor is he a weapon for other Transformers.... pre-order cancelled.

Wow!! Wtf!! I feared that Kingdom was going to bring down the quality that we saw in Siege (especially) and Earthrise, but these things are awful!! :SICK: Why did they have to ruin such a good line of toys?

Each to their own, i think these are fantastic and I'm eagerly awaiting the coming Beast Wars

Yeah, same, even as someone who grew up on BW as a kid, I'm definitely most excited for the new fossilizer additions to the ranks, they all look sick; generations is finally starting to earn the 's' at the end of its name

core class has meant to be cheap and cheerful -except ewhen paying £13 for a $10 figure. Vertebreak seems cool (and reminds me of potp slash for some reason) but going with out a fossiliser gimmick for it seems odd.
Rattrap is okay but I'm still undecided if I'm going for MP's (mostly KOS) over Kingdom as Cheetors pretty bad and Im hoping eventually one of the fossilizers gives black arachnia her show style mouthy bits otherwise I might have to wait for a RED version of her as neither spider modes work for me at the mo.

I am loving these! There is one thing that kinda bothers me about Megatron though: his shins. They're all bent and contorted looking due to being comprised of the t-rex ankles. A simple hinge at that joint would have done wonders to fix the look. As it stands now, he looks like he's in excruciating pain.

You were expecting Masterpiece quality from a pint-sized $10 Scout class figure?

Straight to MP? That's quite a leap :lol: lol
No, but given that we've had some neat little designs in the Micromaster class, I was hoping for something better in the Core class than that junk. In the review, OP's head cover couldn't even stay closed :shock:

One bad apple? No. However an entire line (Kingdom) of junk kiddified toys.. perhaps?
Seriously, Siege was fantastic, Earthrise was good, but these Kingdom characters look awful in comparison

I'm not saying Earthrise is Junk by any means, we've got a lot of great toys, but it's more than early run. More recent toys such as Arcee and Bluestreak still have QC issues.

While I won't deride the entire line, I do have to admit that so far the only Kingdom figure I want is Cyclonus. I mean, I'm not saying the others aren't good, but I just don't have the urge to get them at first chance like I did with Siege and even more so with Earthrise. Personal preference, I guess. Maybe having them in hand will change that.

I agree 100%. I'm surprised he didn't go into the SS 86 figures though. It'd seem a better fit, unless there's something about Kingdom that I've missed

Why characters specifically from TF:TM are getting spread across two lines for the 35th anniversary is anybody's guess (Remember there is still Galvatron and an Earthmode UM coming in Kingdom). The prevailing fan theory is "not enough room" in one line or the other, which to me makes no sense, and I'm still not sold on. Of course while Hasbro does come up with some impressive ideas, they have had their share of headscratchers as well. I love TF:TM, but I'm not into collecting characters specifically from that movie. Still, I know hardcore fans are not going to be phased by the different look and aesthetic of the two lines (Kingdom vs SS86), after all, they've been piecemealing and upgrading their TF:TM cast together from whatever line releases a character since Classics/Generations began.

Not that I know of. May be we'll find out in the Earthrise show from Netflix. And yeah I thought he would be in SS 86 as well, same with Scourge.
