I still think those Go! Combiners look really good. I even like the weird Prime. I'd have them all at Hasbro prices, sadly with the cancellation of the 3-packs I had to pass on them.

If you think that's bad, you should see our staff emails. The puns are endless. For example, when we were doing our Toy Fair coverage... "Toy Far CoverAge (of Extinction)". :BANG_HEAD:

Any more puns and you can consider yourself Sharkticon food.

Anyway, nice fan-made dragon mode sir. Works better than the official one.

I kinda like the idea of Optimus being a serpentine dragon like the official mode attempted to be, so if I ever get this (and that's a big if), I'm gonna try taking a stab at making a fanmade serpentine dragon mode, no matter how wonky it'd still look. :P

You are after my own heart, Siger.

OK OK, seriously though this set looks garbagio. You can't just slap an Optimus head on any robot body and call it OP... or can you? They should retool this and make it a Power Ranger set. The colors and combine form look all matches PR criterion already.

Except for the legal issues that would prevent that from happening. Namely that this is a TakaraTomy creation and Power Rangers is owned by Bandai, a completely diffferent and rival company. Someone would likely sue the other if they tried to do that.

ABOMINATION!!!!!!

I just wanted to say that. Not throwing shade on this set, I want to like it but I just don't at this time. Nice concept though.

We've been seeing reports of these figures showing everywhere but in mainland US - Seibertron was lucky enough to get his photographer's hands on them. He has provided us with yet another astonishing set of galleries. Feast your eyes below on the later wave of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Cyberverse Commanders: Unicron Megatron, Bludgeon and Ultra Magnus. Unicron Megatron is a repaint of the original Transformers Prime Cyberverse mold. Ultra Magnus is retooled from the Optimus Prime mold. Bludgeon is a repaint and retool of the Shockwave mold. Click on any of the images for the full gallery.

I remember when retools were unheard of in Cyberverse. None of the Movie ones had any of that (save adding ports for weapons). UM and Bludgeon look great!
... though I kinda wish Bludgeon was based on BM Scavenger instead. He looks closer to the Vehicon as it is.

I saw Bludgeon in a Target in Canada. But I'm pretty sure he was approaching 12 bucks. He was at least over 10 bucks. Prices seemed higher in Canada for a long time, but it seems like America is catching up in many ways. On the other hand everything sounds at least a bit more expensive here, without fault. At any rate Bludgeon despite being cool was too expensive

The Magnus looks really good.
That doesn't surprise me as I really like that mold for Optimus as well.

The Bludgeon would be OK if they had done a remold of the gun as well.
With that big arm, the mold still screams "Shockwave" to me. A more traditional arm with a fold away barrel would have been better IMO.

The Megatron is a weak mold, at least for alt mode, and those dorky colors don't help. Not a fan.
