Starscream doesn't seem to be particularly common either, and I don't think Grimlock got released in the States at all. Which is a shame, since I kinda wanted that Grimlock.


I think online retailers like BBTS had it when they were first released. It was a kinda blink and you miss it deal.

BBTS didnt have them. Robot Kingdom did, they were the only major online retailer to have the first wave of figures.

BBTS had them, that's where I got mine. When I wrote I think I was speaking directly to the availability of Grimlock

The highlight of the post, in the images seen below, is twofold: alongside Generations Power of the Primes deluxes and the Authentics line (which we are already seeing across the globe), we have some more figures for Cyber Battalion - the voyager-esque sized simplified toys, including Jetfire (again), Prowl, Shockwave, and Sideswipe!

Check out the image and the wave breakdown below, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

It's interesting that we're also getting a Shockwave in Cyberverse. This renewed interest in him makes me very hopefully that we get a new, non-Legends one in Generations soon.

First Look at New Generations Shockwave and Sideswipe from Cyber Battalion Line

Postby william-james88 » Sun Mar 04, 2018 12:54 pm

We have known for a long time now that there would be a new Shockwave and Sideswipe coming to the Cyber Battalion line, a value oriented subline of the Generations line. However, we had never seen an image of them. Until now.

The Snakas Blog has posted images coming from Taiwan of these two brand new toys found in stores. While these are made for brand recognition/growth in BRICS countries, some toys have made it to the US as well, like last year's Prowl and Jetfire which were found at Walgreens. It is unsure if these two will as well. Speaking of Prowl, it seems Windcharger Sideswipe shares the same engineering. Shockwave however is completely new and turns into a cybertronian spaceship very similar to RID's Cyclonus.

Previous toys in the subline have also been found at Universal Studios but at "exclusive-style" prices, so these might as well. For those unaware, these are voyager sized toys which sell at the deluxe class price point when found at retail. For a review on the previous Prowl release in this line, you can click here.

That Sideswipe would make for a half decent Overdrive.

I was actually thinking "why did they give Sideswipe, Windcharger's altmode?" But Now that you mention Overdrive, it does strike that chord rather well.

Hi there Sixshot, trying on a Shockwave disguise? :lol:

Pretty surprised Shockwave is all new (and that he needs a "Decepticon" prefix), Sideswipe looks ok. Shares some parts with Prowl, but the toes, lower arms, hood and top, and the head are new. I can't really determine the make of the front, could be totally made up.

The instructions show the back including the inside of the knees, and from the looks of it, it's a mushroom peg type swivel.

How can Cyber Series Shockwave look miles better than the Cyberverse Shockwave, be a lot bigger, and cost only a little more, and yet be near impossible for any of us to buy? And what's going on with his head? In bot mode his head has ears, but not in alt mode. Does he have two heads just for the sake of an exposed head? (Looking closer all of the head details are different so he does have two heads, it's hard to tell what's happening in the instructions.) And will he have clear parts? His hand/gun, wing tips, and some other parts are slightly different shades of purple from the rest of him, but the CGI models don't look clear. Probably paint, but that's a lot of paint. Guess we'll know soon enough.

Maybe Walgreens will get them (wont hold my breath).

I want that Shockwave! He's simple, clean and effective and Shockwave is one character I'm all on board for him being a simple and effective figure. Not to mention I don't have a Shockwave in my collection and his Voyager size would make him roughly in scale with my Megatron and Starscream.

WOW! That is a damn fine lookin' Shockwave! This may be the first "Cyber Series" toy I bother to pick up. It looks like a nearly perfect fit for my Classics shelf. I can finally replace the rather undersized FoC Deluxe Shockwave filling that slot currently.

When I first heard there would be a cyber battalion shockwave, I was excited as hell. And hot damn, I love that thing. The spaceship is ok I guess, but that robot mode is absolutely perfect. And the ship is 3 times better than that spider tank thing the cyberverse figure has. A buy for sure if I can find him

Liking both designs! I just hope that shockwave has a knee bend, considering cyber battalion tends to skip on that, unless it is needed for the transformation. And looking at the steps, it is not needed.

I really like that Shockwave. The Sideswipe figure has the same alt mode as Generations Bumblebee right down to the raised edge of the Front Fenders.
