The 1/4 scale action figure features the likeness of actor Danny DeVito, whose memorable performance as the twisted Oswald Cobblepot in the 1992 movie still defines the character. Bumblebee from the Transformers film of the same name is the first in the Transformers DLX Collectible Series! Bumblebee stands 8 inches tall, and features a whopping 55 points of articulation, LED illuminated eyes, interchangeable Stinger Blaster, and die-cast metal parts.
It was impossible to take and edit these photos without humming the cartoon’s theme song to myself! ~ Always have been a fan of the X-Men (comics, the cartoon series and films). and not to have a Transformers figure that turns into their iconic SR-71 Blackbird is the bomb! Although this isn’t my favorite collab figure to date, I do like the design of the robot mode with nice touches such as the Cyclops visor, Wolverine claw, Psylocke blade. I like to think they developed this tech with the help of a Cybertronian partner to help them battle the Sentinel robots of the future!
Grindor w/ Ravage In Package and In Hand! #StudioSeries #Transformers
More than just a straight re-issue of Blackout it appears designers added some improvements such as hand swivels, articulating fingers and a little more sand-weathered deco... as well as the me Ravage...
#Transformers War For Cybertron: Kingdom w4 In Package
We get our first look courtesy of unknown author in Singapore. This round includes some eagerly anticipated figures such as Leader Class Galvatron, BW Scorponok, Tracks, Wingfinger, and Core Class Soundwave.
Special thanks to @Hasbro for passing along the additional images and info from this #Transformers Tuesday reveals. Love’m both, though I’m not sure I like the name “Maximal Skywarp?!” Of course, his design is based on the Maximal combiner component “Silverbolt...”. The only forgivable excuse for not calling him Silverbolt is if there’s a Fuzor Silverbolt in the pipeline and they didn’t want to create confusion! ~ Time will tell.

It has recently come to our attention that some internet troll has taken to impersonating us and our news feed at unicron.com, using our images and reposting our feed. Best guess is that they pretend to be us in an effort to get other people's personal info.
Beware, this is a SCAM. We’re not doing any contests, you haven’t won any prize ... If someone asks for your personal info, do NOT give it to them. They’ve been reported to Facebook admin, hopefully it’ll be shut down soon. Thought in the meantime, we’d provide you a heads up!
Do we get tired of watching fellow fans open and react to this magnificent toy? No, we do not. I think it's the way that the size and scale of this figure fills you with such awe, it makes you feel like you're 10 years old and opening your first Transformers toy again... I think that's why I continue to enjoy watching others experience it for the first time - even though we've already opened and experienced it ourselves firsthand. FWIW! Enjoy yet another "Dammit, Open!"

HUFFER Gets His Day! #Transformers #WarForCybertron Kingdom Deluxe
“He looks through the world through sludge colored windshields. Will complain it cannot be built, then builds it anyway. Not too sociable, but absolutely reliable... Often unhappy and homesick for Cybertron.
- excerpt from original Tech Spec
Huffer wasn’t exactly a top tier G1 Autobot, but as prominent as he was for me as a child, it’s amazing that there have been SO few versions of the character over the years. If you don’t count Kre-O, or a handful of orange Optimus Prime recolors and the Botcon exclusive... then only 3 toys of him have ever been made, the G1 original, a cool original mold character in the “Power Core Combiners” (2010)and now, FINALLY - a figure drawing from his show accurate appearance now in 2021 WFC Kingdom.
I love what this did with his design. The weapon shield that converts his alt mode from a tractor/trailer to a flat-bed truck... His alt mode is totally authentic to the original toy and appears nearly perfectly to scale w/ the Leader Class Optimus Prime trailer. His robot mode is (thank goodness!) NOT authentic tot the original toy, but near-perfect homage to his depiction in the Sunbow original cartoon series. EXACTLY what I want in a Huffer update.
I’m not too optimistic I’ll see much of him in the #Netflix Kingdom series... But I’m perfectly okay with that. It’s most about getting the definitive Huffer toy that makes that just fine by me.
I finally have him, the fan favorite character himself is finally here! Definitely one of the most standout characters from the Beast Wars era and WFC has done him justice. My initial thoughts upon getting the figure was WOW, the sculpt, the size, the articulation but most of all that face, it's straight out of the show.
The beast mode, as with many other kingdom beast modes, is very well done, better than I had imagined for being a regular retail figure, we really have come a long way since the original Dinobot figure from 1996/7. The mouth of the velociraptor can open, the hands are a bit odd in the pose they chose but they are on ball joints, we have movement at the elbow and shoulder, the legs are fixed at the hip due to transformation but you can move them outward and utilize the bends and swivels in the beast mode legs. Overall articulation in beast mode is nothing to write home about but it gets the job done.
The transformation from beast to robot mode is smooth and easy, it has a few moving parts,, some degree of complexity but nothing overly complicated and nothing that is too delicate. I really enjoy how the transformation is somewhat similar to the original figure.
Robot mode is the main attraction and Hasbro Takara Tomy has done an amazing job here. The first thing I'd like to talk about is the face sculpt, wow just wow, that is definitely Dinobot, there is no mistaking it, they got the colors, the eyes and the expression all down near perfectly. The chest, pelvis, legs and arms are all very well done. I think in the area of the robot mode appearance, the only area one might dislike is the size of the shoulders and maybe the total height and heft, Dinobot in the cartoon series was tall, very big and broad at the shoulders, since the shoulders here have to fit into the parts that form the side of the beast mode, they have to be small enough to fit. Going by the TV show, this Dinobot should be a little bit taller but this is Kingdom Dinobot and only a Voyager, if it were a Leader Class, I'm sure they would have been able to make him taller and broader without much compromise but these are nitpicks at best, overall the robot mode appearance is amazing.
Robot mode articulation is everything that we have come to expect from WFC, ankle tilt, waist swivel, wrist swivel and the like however due to the nature and design of the character, we have a few extras such as hinges at the wrists, the feet and heels can point downward and there is additional upward movement at the shoulders. Dinobots robot mode wouldn't be complete without his iconic sword and spinning tail shield and Hasbro Takara had recreated them here to great effect. The sword this time around is purple instead of silver possibly to blend in better with the tail color and unfortunately the tail doesn't have a free spin feature but I wasn't expecting one as such features have long since been abandoned in favor of an overall better figure as such features in the past at times compromised other areas of the figure and had the potential to use up a decent amount of the budget.
Dinobot is definitely one of my personal favorite characters from Beast Wars, his character arc, the growth and development that his character went through was groundbreaking for the time, I am very happy to finally have a great Dinobot figure to go on my modern BW shelf. What do you think of WFC Kingdom Voyager Class Dinobot? Is he a figure that you will be looking to add to your collection?
Feed him to the Sharkticons! Deluxe Scale Gnaw #TransformersTheMovie #StudioSeries86 #Transformers Generations
