War for Cybertron: Kingdom
The second wave of Core Class Kingdom figures are hitting shelves now in the United States. Part of that wave is the leader of the Decepticons himself, Megatron! Check out my review and gallery of this new release.
Over the past couple of weeks some teasers for a figure that is reported as Kingdom Galvatron have been popping up online here and there. In the past couple days however much clearer photos showing the entire figure have popped up online. While I do believe these represent the (rumored) Leader Class figure, no official reveal has been done yet so until then do take this news with a grain of salt.

Each wave of the Netflix figures thus far has had a "spoiler pack" so this was to be expected. What is surprising is that only one day after the reveal of the box, the Smythe's web s
Thanks to the folks over at TFW2005 we have product images and descriptions of upcoming Netflix figures from Kingdom. Presumably these will be Walmart exclusives like the Siege and Earthrise Netflix figures before them. One pack features Optimus Primal with Rattrap. The Primal appears to be very similar to the Kingdom release.
The upcoming wave of Kingdom figures includes Core Class Megatron and Starscream figures. These were revealed back in December with dramatic photography by Hasbro. These will be mass releases in North America, but in Japan these two figures will be Takara Tomy Mall exclusives.
