The War for Cybertron trilogy is coming to a close with the last part of the Kingdom line currently on pre-order. However, one release that has been the subject of curiosity is Kingdom Red Alert. The figure was originally slated to be a Walgreens exclusive. Rumor was that its street date was meant to be October 2021, but to date there have not been appearances in store in the same way as other Walgreens exclusives from the past. Hasbro Pulse
War for Cybertron: Kingdom
As 2021 comes to a close as will the Kingdom line with its final wave due out in early 2022. While information on this wave has leaked here and there for months now (including some partial reveals by Hasbro itself) they have finally confirmed the final wave of the end to the War for Cybertron trilogy. Thanks to a reveal on its Facebook page, we now have the final roster for the end of Kingdom. Here's the breakdown from Facebook:
Earlier today Hasbro held a Q&A with several online venues including Ben's World of Transformers. At the very end of this session it was revealed that there would be a fifth wave of "Kingdom", the final chapter in the War for Cybertron story. One of the figures in this line? Blaster! Fans have been wanting Soundwave's Autobot adversary for years now and this figure represents the first original sculpt for the character in decades. Check out the official product information and images (along with screen grabs from the session) below:
Once upon a time he was Beast Wars Megatron's most loyal warrior. In another timeline he is one of many troops who guard the Predacon base. Either way Scorponok is part of the Beast Wars inspired Kingdom era! Check out my review and gallery of this Deluxe Class figure from the Generations line.
Without any official announcement, Kingdom Wave 4 news has been trickling out over the past few days thanks to online listings by Amazon. You can pre-order this wave now on BigBadToyStore.
The fourth release in the "Golden Disk" series has been revealed! This time out it is the Predacon Terrorsaur! This power hungry character was one of the few to stand up to Megatron in the Beast Wars series before his unceremonious death in the second season. This version of the character imagines a different fate where the lava did not kill him but instead enhances his power!
The fourth wave of Kingdom Deluxe Class figures has been a bit of an oddity. Unlike past waves which received some level of promotion (even if it was just from retailer listings and newsletters) this wave was first hinted at back in July but to date there has been no official announcement. However, retailers have begun listing the wave for pre-orders.
Yesterday Hasbro Pulse and Amazon unleashed a new release in its "Golden Disk" Collection: Jackpot with Sights! Who you may ask? Jackpot was a G1 Action Master released at the end of that era. While the figure did not transform, it was clear form his design that he once could transform into a car. He was partnered with Sights, a bird-bot who transformed into his weapon. Now Jackpot has returned in a transformable body (a redeco/retool of Studio Series Jazz) with a redeco of Pteraxadon as Sights!
