I have been more accepting of Shockwave's vehicle since I saw it in motion in the show.

Okay, so I was reading the listing for Ratchet on Amazon and I run across with this -

i am actually interested in grimlock there. he seems to have "good" articulations, with overall badass design, and the garbage truck armor is hillarious, but also looks badass at the same time.

Somewhere there’s a kid who’s dad is a paramedic who’s also coincidentally a snowmobile enthusiast. And he will now be a TF fan for life.

While gundam as a whole has phenomenal designs, G Gundam in particular has a lot of off the wall designs, Google what Neo Americas entry looked like ;) (and Neo Canada for that matter)

I can't wait to get some of these spark armours, should be free to get some in the next few weeks.

Video Review of Transformers Cyberverse Mace Mash Gnaw

PostPosted: Sat Aug 10, 2019 6:39 pm
by Stargrave
Thanks to Ham-Man reviews we have a video review for Transformers Cyberverse Mace Mash Gnaw! Although looking much like his Titans Return iteration in robot mode and transformation you will find this version of Gnaw to be quite different, a good bit bigger and now sporting an action gimmick involving his whole upper torso in robot mode being able to whirl around for his Mace Mash attack. Any fans of the character shouldn't have too many issues with the scale differences as this is one of the few genuine troop builders in the Decepticon army and they still go relatively well when side by side in the review. Enjoy the view and share your thoughts with the Seibertron crew in the forums. And as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!


New Profiles for Transformers Cyberverse Cheetor, Sky-Byte, and Jetfire

PostPosted: Sat Aug 10, 2019 8:03 pm

Thanks to Hasbro's most recent update to the Cyberverse section of their website we have some new Transformers Cyberverse profiles for you to enjoy! The site now has images and profiles for the most recent darlings of the line namely Sky-Byte, Jetfire, and of course Cheetor! These characters are listed as part of Chapter 2 of the Cyberverse saga also known as Cyberverse: Power of the Spark. Enjoy the images and profiles below and let us know your thoughts in the forums. As always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Image

Function: Guardian of the Allspark
"Cheetor is the Allspark's mysterious guardian. Like, majorly mysterious. No one knows the source of his enormous strength and catlike form? Anyway, turns out being cloaked in mystery makes you very difficult to defeat, and even more difficult to buy presents for. Thankfully he uses his powers to defend the side of good against those nasty Decepti-creeps."
-Bumblebee

Image

Function: Mighty Air Guardian
"Everyone thought Jetfire exploded in a plume of jet smoke while battling his nemesis, Sky-Byte. Luckily for the Autobots he lived to fight (and fight, and fight) another day. He never gives up, and he never gives in. Just don't get in his way when he's in the middle of combat. He has a habit of destroying everything in his path to clinch a win."
-Bumblebee

Image

Function: Harbinger of Doom
"Part ferocious fighter, part freaky metal shark-jet with lasers, Sky-Byte is Megatron's first choice for missions that border on the impossible. He's fast, tough, and bursting at the seams with enough firepower to handle any situation. No matter where you are, if Sky-Byte is on your tail, there's no safe place to hide."
-Bumblebee

So, Cheetor has super strength, Jetfire's a born fighter, and Sky-Byte is a mad daredevil and Jetfire's rival.

Can't say that Cyberverse isn't at least trying something new with these guys.

Cheetor being the guardian of the AllSpark in this show, and Optimus Primal being the similar guardian of the Requiem Blaster in Power of the Primes, gives me the impression that Hasbro doesn't really know what to do with the Beast Wars characters. Most of them don't really fit in a back-to-basics G1 themed setting, but years of fan polls have told Hasbro that the Beast Wars characters are too popular to just leave in the past (as I suspect John Warden wants to), however it feels to me as if the same general backstory is being re-used for Cyberverse Cheetor because Hasbro can't (or don't care to) come up with anything different.

Hard to say, in some regards all you'd have to do is say that his team landed on another planet and were forced to take on organic alt modes, ala the original beast wars premise.

Or better yet, say his team landed in the very heart of Africa in a location far away from any technology or civilization, and had no choice but to scan animals instead of vehicles/metal objects since there were none available to scan.

Well, back when Beast Wars was the current toyline/cartoon, G1 was relegated to the mysterious past, which made sense for longtime fans and gave BW a vague, epic history for kids too young to remember G1. So if one accepts that BW=different-era-relative-to-G1, the now 20 year old in real life Beast-Era gets displaced into the vague past of a current G1-ish leg of the TF franchise Its characters therefore fill a similar role to the Guardian units, Mysterio-esque-drones, etc. in the G1 'toon, but with actual personality. It makes just enough sense.

One odd bio tidbit:
Anyway, turns out being cloaked in mystery makes you very difficult to defeat, and even more difficult to buy presents for.

...makes me wonder if someone just gave him that battleship for his 100,000,000th birthday.

Hey, cut him some slack, at least he got the size right. That's better than most people's relatives can manage.

Just realized Cheetor is a Target exclusive, not sure how I hadn't noticed that before. Hope I don't regret passing on him in favor of Alpha Trion today. :HEADHURTS:

Alpha Trion is pretty great though, he looks great with Siege figures, but the flaps that hang between his knees are very loose and readily fall off. Keep an those when you're buying, there isn't much keeping them in the open box! If you look at the stock photos you can see the one on the right (his left) is falling off.
