Edit: huh, weird. The picture insertion doesn't seem to work as it usually does. Are there any change i am not aware of?

Courtesy to vector sigma on facebook. This is definitely something i can finally get into. Also, we get confirmation of the other deluxe figures, as well as which BAF parts comes with who.

Some sites have hotlink protection because linking directly to images on a certain site is considered bandwidth theft. Also, "Copy Image Location" will not always give you right address (it has to end in the image filename plus extension), especially if the image on the site opens in a java-script window.

I am not exactly linking tho. I just did what usually i did and works on this site. I upload the pic on "upload attachment" section, click "add the file" button, then after that clicking "put inline" button. This usually works smoothly here.

All 8 Cyberverse Deluxes for Build a Figure Macadam Revealed including Arcee and Thunderhowl

PostPosted: Sun Dec 01, 2019 9:05 pm

We got some pretty big news coming from fellow fan Kenneth Y who had this posted through BWTF.com. Firstly, the first 4 deluxes from the Transformers Cyberverse line are out in Hong Kong. The back of the packaging reveals 2 facts. The first being that it will be indeed 8 toys that are needed to build Maccadam. And the second being the reveal of the other 4. We already knew the first wave would be Bumblebee, Shockwave, Megatron and Optimus, which we can all see in their packaging. Now we know that the second wave will consist of Arcee, Hotrod (who we saw already), Grimlock and a new character called Thunderhowl. This is great news since Transformers cartoons have often been the place for new characters that can grow the franchise and keep it from being stale. Thunderhowl continues that tradition.

From the same fan, we also have images of deluxe Optimus Prime. Now we can see the full range of motion of this figure and that it is indeed on par with the Siege line in terms of detail, complexity and articulation. Meaning that at the $20 price point, the extra build a figure pieces are really just a bonus, as they were meant to be when the concept first started.

You can see all the images below, let us know what you think!

These look pretty decent! I've picked up a few Cyberverse figures for my godkids, mostly Scout class. I want to see what that Arcee figure is going to look like. The pics of Optimus show decent articulation.

Man I'm not gonna lie, compared to everything else in Cyberverse these looks REALLY good. As in actual, solid, complete and functionnal Transformers figures not too hampered by their gimmicks. They have a nice presentation, decent articulation, look mostly good enough in both modes and are show accurate. There's absolutely nothing wrong with those figures, unlike the early offerings of Cyberverse which always had some issue.

This looks good. If I had watched the show and was interested in it I'd be quite happy. This...really looks good. Like what you'd expect of a TF toyline. Why weren't these made from the get go?

I think its because they initially wanted a clearer seperation of pricepoints and complexity between this G1 based line and the other G1 based generations line.

I'm surprised they made Arcee one of the deluxes, given her relatively low amount of screentime thus far. Maybe she's going to have a bigger role in Season 3? Also really curious as to who this "Thunderhowl" guy is, since he seems to be completely new.

I like that Bee's stinger piece is removable, from the first photos I thought he was just going to have that instead of a hand.

She'll get her due in a forthcoming Season 2 episode. ;)

Hmm, I noticed in a pic or two of Prime that its hand is folded in sideways holding the ion blaster. I wonder if Prime has an issue holding the blaster properly.

Okay. Still, that's just one episode. I'm kinda surprised we're not seeing someone more prominent, like Cheetor or Slipstream. Or Starscream for that matter, he's usually right up there with Prime, Megs, and Bee on the "put him in everything" list.

Wow, these look very good!

Haven't found that big Grimlock yet, is it out?

Arcee, can never have too many Arcee options.

What's a Maccadam?

And where do you Americanas watch Cyberverse? I'm Dutch and most of the time we don't get all Transformers things.

How many episodes are out on the interwebz for every Transformer fan to enjoy around the planet (that's fair and all).

Build a figure, that's completely new for Transformers! I love the concept and all 4 of these guys look fantastic so I will be getting them all. Eventough I just bought Spark Armor Optimus and Megatron.

I love the simplicity of the Cyberverse line, Slipstream (voyager sized) looks very good and is pretty solid (only a small torso looseness). But she has her very own mold!
I would love if they redo Acid Storm/Thundercracker/Starscream as Mold buddies. The small deluxe sized ones are very underwhelming. I had Starscream a while back, thought he was flimsy and Thundercracker/Acidstorm don't have the square head but are just repaints of that sleek Starscream head.

I have all the Shockwaves from Cyberverse. The Warrior (great figure), the voyager (Decent) and the Spark Armor (still in package) and in the future this Deluxe Shockwave.
I'm building a Shockwave army. Anyone remember Battalion Shockwave? GREAT figure that is :D

More aimed at kids but I like simple transformations and half of the Cyberverse figures are very decent in my opinion. I do hope they size up Ratchet at some point.

Wait, Warrior Prowl, that guy is amazing! Very simple but very well proportioned. I love Warrior Prowl. I hope they repaint him at least 2 times. Even has flip out cannons guys!

TV-wise, it is broadcast on Cartoon Network on Saturday mornings. Meanwhile, Hasbro uploads the episodes to their official YouTube channel every Sunday.

All episodes of Season 1 and 2 can be found online for anyone to watch (the ones on YouTube are only just now getting halfway through Season 2; the rest of the Season already finished airing in Australia back in September, so every episode was put on other sites like Dailymotion ahead of the episodes' U.S. airdates)

Beast Wars 10th Annivrsary Transmutate from 2006 was a build-a-figure.

So Thunderhowl is a thing that exists, I guess. Not gonna lie, that name and the very small look at him and his color scheme honestly makes me think of RiD Steeljaw, but it looks like he's an Autobot, so I have no idea what to expect from him. Hopefully he's cool though, new characters are always appreciated.

I've seen on Twitter that apparently, he was a RiD con who did not make the show, but is appearing now

Cool, thanks for the answers!

Forgot about Transmutate :D. That was a build a figure as well for a very limited line as I member.

Once cyberverse runs its course, I'll have to redo my top 5 grimlock list. Also I realized something cool about Cyberverse grimlock. While the design is very G1, it removes the excess kibble flaps on his back. It's subtle but it calls for a whole new approach to transformation. D-Max did you have a chance to transform that Spark Armor Grimlock yet? That one too reinvents the classic transformation.

No, I only got the big one. Didn't really have an interest in the spark armor one, and only got Cheetor, Ratchet, and Sky Byte from the armors anyway.

The transformation is really fun on the big one too, I love how bulky but still posable it is, and pretty clean too, even if I think the dino snout could use a bit more color

FOC Grimlock nixed the kibble wings first. ;)
