Another great new find at retail today. The Cyberverse Shockwave and Ratchet playsets were found by fellow Seibertronian Hip-Hoptimus Rime. They were found at the Golf Mill Toys'R'Us in Illinois. It's time to get hunting for some of that new Dark Of The Moon products.

I have been waiting so long for these two sets to come out! But I thought it was just some camera angle or something, but it seems now that Shockwave officially has 2 eyes :-? . The Megatron set, which is already at stores (atleast where I am) has the right side of his face blue. Hasbro is starting to either be cheap, or forgetting to finish some figures some how. Epic either way, definite buy for Shockwave :CON: . If I get the Autobot Ark, then I'll get the Ratchet set. Thanks for the images.

I found these guys last Saturday at Target, and put up a review for Shockwave here (and at TFW) on Sunday. I'm surprised how early I found them; here in the East Coast we usually have to wait weeks for stuff to pop up. Cyberverse sets have been just flying off the shelves.

EDIT:

Shockwave most definitely has ONE eye

And neck rotation!

Guess he does have one eye #-o . Very odd that some images look like he has 2. Is that an image from just from the commander class Cyberverse figure (if there is going to be one)or the one with the set? Hasbro messed up Megatron's face for the Cyberverse set figure. Anyhow Thanks for the image, looks EPIC :KREMZEEK: .

Megatron is supposed to look like that. For whatever reason they decided to make Megatron unable to completely heal his structure.

Must find these Cyberverse. :KREMZEEK:

Is it just me or does Shockwave's base look like an evil version of of g1 prime's repair trailer 8-}

I'm tempted to get Ratchet just to have a larger version of Roller. The one that comes with the Ark is pretty tiny.

Nice! Thanks for the pics!

I shall most definitely own these little gems, but I first need to pick up the Optimus and Megs vehicle sets first. I typically purchase TFs in the order they come out in order to forestall any possible later availability issues on the older stuff (except in some cases like generations where you gotta buy them on sight or risk never seeing them again). Tempting though. ;)

I think the illusion of two eyes comes from the flash reflecting off the pale metallic paint on either side of the central eye...

These have to eventually come out again without their playsets, right? The Legion class Starscream mold and Shockwave?

The megs w/ the trailer/playset head is blue your right, but just the Megs Commander has a normal face (non-blue) and has better paint apps in truck mode.

Starscream's getting a stand-alone redeco soon, without tattoos in alt mode. No word on Shockwave, though given how much Hasbro's reusing Cyberverse molds I'm sure there will eventually be one.
Curiously, Shockwave comes with accessories (his "proper" ones, in fact) in his set, while fellow Commanders Optimus and Megatron do not.

Well, you can get Prime right by buying them all. The battleblades prime, Jetpack version, and the trailer playset. (something I'm not going to spend cash chasing) But yeah, nice to see Shockwave looking right the first time out.

I'll never find Shockwave because there's not even a deluxe class Starscream in my store! :sad:
