"Discover an alternate timeline in which the quantum surge that mutated many Maximals and Predacons into Transmetals, goes very differently…"

They changed the quantum surge.

Right. For this batch of releases, there are no leaks or rumors of any Transmetals. But they went out of their way to call out the concept. Not necessarily a Chekov's gun, but like I said, possibly a hint of things to come?

It must be the Timeline from the toyline I'd guess. The one where the entire Earthrise and Kingdom toy casts come to Earth and Fossilizers exist and such. That timeline would be WAY DIFFERENT than the WFC cartoon just for so many more characters being involved if nothing else.

So maybe in that timeline the conflict on Earth involved the bots, cons, maxs, and preds causing the quantum surge and screwing up Pipes/Huffer while drawing in Road Ranger and Jackpot from where and whenever they were portaling.


-ZacWilliam, gonna be my head canon at least.

I ordered mutant Tigatron but he's definitely the one of these I'm most likely to drop.

-ZacWilliam, he's neat but I don't "need" him.

With Terrorsaur being one of the larger Predacons I wonder if the Kingdom Terrorsaur will be to Airrazor as Tigatron is to Cheetor.

I preordered one, not for myself, but for my nephew. He's been hugely into the Beast Wars side of Kingdom and now is watching the old BW show, and this would be an excellent thing to put in an Easter Basket, as he's unlikely to know it exists and it's harder and harder to surprise people nowadays. If Terrorsaur is tomorrow and I can get that too, I'll have everything I need.

I feel mostly the same. Ranking them a tie between Terrorsaur and Jackpot (with Jackpot being a shade higher), then Road Ranger/Puffer, then Mutantiger.

Oh man! I'm glad I still have him on preorder. I was hesitant after picking up Scorponok, but I think he's enough of a retool for me to justify the price.

I just hope he doesn't ship too early. I need him to wait till after the holidays.

-ZacWilliam, January is fine, just after xmas

I'd still like to know if the wound in the Headmaster's chest is a reference to something.

The eyepatch is probably a nod to Black Zarak's Zone redesign, but the Headmaster's chest wound and its X-shape seem very specific to something.

I would presume the wound that Fortress Maximus gave Mega Zarak during their final battle in Headmasters. May not make sense to be on Zarak / Scorponok but I believe that's what they are going for.

I love it.

The final battle saw Fort Max completely bisecting the MegaZarak transtector in half, head to toe.

In my head canon this could be a new Black Zarak, it goes that Nebulon Zarak who came to Legends world in LGEX #40, goes to the Takaraverse finding Destron Zarak damaged after Zone, he adapts himself to be a new head and the two build a titan/city bot sized Black Zarak.
Destron Zarak ditched his MegaZarak transtector in Headmasters, his Black Zarak body was destroyed by fire Ginrai in Masterforce and returned in Zone sporting an eye patch as seen on the figure.

So, anyone else get e-mails from Hasbro Pulse saying that their preorders for Selects Galvatron and Selects Artfire & Nightstick had been delayed?
