I don't know about this line. I don't want to just complain about it being too "kiddy" since I'm an adult collector but man, it's taken a few steps back from RiD 2015. The lack of some vital bit of articulation on all of these guys really bothers me - Starscream has no individual leg movement besides side to side, Bumblebee has badly designed knees that seem designed to only bend for transformation and not during play, Optimus has a permanently bent arm with no hand for his gimmick and he and Shockwave have no head articulation. None of these seem acceptable to me for modern figures at the deluxe scale, especially the head movement - even legends figures have that. And the big 10 inch tall Megatron I can't remember the size class of doesn't have elbows either. I'm not saying kids won't like them because I don't know, but they just don't seem to be very well put together, and I at least remember my favorite Armada toy growing up was that little deluxe Optimus Prime that had a buttload of articulation. So I don't know, I hope the line does improve, but the only figure I'm interested in so far is the big 10 inch Optimus just because he looks simple and fun, his gimmick doesn't interfere with his articulation and he might be fun to paint. The non moving head killed my interest in Shockwave.

So much potential with the designs, but what was wrong with sticking with the RiD Warrior formula? I think there are enough of the others, including the gimmicks, to make the warriors like the RiD ones

My last Comiccon panel was about toys that are incredible which are sold along one that is a total failure. Toys that come from the same line, in the same category. Usually, there's only one total failure. I'll make a thread to share and show this panel to you guys soon enough. Anyway, it's the first time that I see there's only ONE good toy so far in an entire line that fail hard. In the "deluxe" catgory at least.

Even though the scouts are gimmicky messes, they may be better built and be fun to fiddle with. I'm also looking forward how the ultra/voyagers will be like.

New Transformers Cyberverse Listings on Amazon, including Power Ram line and Prowl

Postby Va'al » Fri Jul 13, 2018 12:20 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We have some more coded or unknown for sure listings over on online retailer Amazon, and specifically its Australian site, for some upcoming Transformers figures and sets that we might end up seeing in person at San Diego Comic Con 2018 next week, with a tentative release date of January 2019.

The first batch are some that appear to be part of the Cyberverse line, under the Power Ram subline or gimmick, probably similar to Crash Combiners from Robots in Disguise, with some additional names like Megatron, Starscream and Bumblebee, including one not seen so far: Prowl. The image below is from the animated series official art, as there is no other stock image yet!

Most likely, oh well, as long as they keep the kids entertained, they will have served their purpose.

Even if it's the shockwave figure?

Didn't you take a picture of them at TRU? Could have sworn I saw that in one of your recent photos (even if it was just the RID repaints). :-?

New Transformers Cyberverse Sightings in USA, Canada and UK

Postby william-james88 » Wed Jul 18, 2018 10:37 am

We have a nice roundup of news for the availability of several Transformers Cyberverse toys in three international markets (which are coincidentally all anglophone).

Firstly, these toys have finally appeared in the US. Fans have reported seeing several classes at Target. The classes found were the one steps ($9.99), warrior class ($14.99) and scout class ($7.99), the later one being made up of toys that do not fully transform.

Image


In Canada, the warrior class has also been found. This class has Shockwave, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Starscream. They were found at Toysrus, priced at $19.99 CAD, the same price point as Generations deluxe figures.

Image


Last but not least, fellow Seibertronian ZeroWolf has informed us that the Ultimate Class can now be preordered in the UK through Amazon. This class consists of Optimus Prime and Megatron and is priced at £29.99, which stays true to the trend of UK prices being the same nominal value as the US MSRP but in pounds. The release date is August 1st.

I don't really like the line so far. Only Shockwave voyager and his deluxe spider tank drone. I like them very much but everything else nope.

Anybody get that Jetfire? The simpeler one about voyager sized? I think it's better than the Leader Generations class, it has no fake chest, has decent articulation, simple transformation.
I really hope that one gets the Seekers repaint/remold treatment.
Anyway offtopic.

The Optimus transformation looks great, what I want actually. But voyager sized and not so simple in design. It looks ugly and disproportionate. 16 gbp is expensive for a simplistic small deluxe Transformer.
That thing should be more like 13.

Collectors are getting Transformers War for Cybertron! Not the game, the newest Generations line, which looks awesome so far.

What Shockwave voyager?There is none revealed so far for this line.

EDIT: Reading the rest of your post, I can see the confusion.

There are 2 distinct lines that are not connected. This is cyberverse, for the upcoming show, but the line made up of simlified voyager toys (like Shockwave and Jetfire) is Cyber Battalion, which is part of the Generations line.

You are better to ask your questions about that line in its own different thread: viewtopic.php?t=103590&p=1948216#p1948216

Huh, you know, the scene in the final episode of TF: Prime season 1 where Optimus unleashes the Matrix on Unicron was pretty Guyver-esque, now that you mention it.

Transformers Cyberverse Warrior Megatron, Shadow Striker, Acid Storm, Windblade and More #HasbroSDCC

Postby william-james88 » Wed Jul 18, 2018 7:57 pm

Live from the Hasbro floor at San Diego Comic Con, we have our next round of reveal from the Cyberverse line! The reveals for this line include:

Warrior and Scout Windblade

Ultra Shockwave

Ultra Shadow Striker

Warrior Megatron

Warrior Acid Storm

Scout Slipstream

Scout Optimus Prime

And an Optimus prime trailer playset

The seekers are of course redecos of eachother it seems. The most impressive by far is that ultra shockwave, which seems to have decent articulation and a far more imposing spider tank mode. Let us know what else you pick up from these photos and expect more in the coming days from San Diego Comic Con.
