Transformers Cyberverse is clearly not everyone's cup of tea, nor was it meant to be. One thing is undeniale though, it is bringing very niche characters to the forefront unlike ever before, case in point the large seeker cast which is also getting actual toys aimed at kids.

The case contents for wave 2 was revealed earlier this week and we do see some characters getting shortpacked. So for parents wanting to introduce these characters to their kids of have them as part of your collection, you know which one to be on the lookout.

Ultra Class (voyager size)
1x Shockwave
2x Bumblebee
1x Shadow Striker

It's hard for me to watch Transformers getting such lackluster animation and toyline offerings. Where is the brand's sense of self-respect?

I dont know about you guys, ut i love that episode, especially watching it with my 3 year old daughter. It was all the G1 fun I would have wanted. We havent seen much of the actual war displayed on screen so this is great. I really wish we had decent toys that looked like these designs, they are great.

So Hasbro can do a lot of four in a case of Ultras, but for Generations Voyagers they can only do two? I really don't get Hasbro's logic here. Sure I understand two to a case of Leaders since they make for a big box, but that's clearly not the reasoning behind the Voyager cases so what gives? Things would be a lot easier to find if they put more in a case compared to stores often ordering only one case at a time and selling out to a single person that wants the two characters.

Voyagers are 4 a case I believe, 2 of 2 figures. Simply a matter of streamlining logistics and spreading out releases as the bigger the figure, the tougher the sell as the saying goes.

And surprise, surprise, Bumblebee is packed 2 a case (again?). He has no problems selling from what I've seen however, from Wave 1 I've seen Grimlock and Starscream more often.

You would think, but no, only 2 per case. I had ordered TR Sentinel Prime and Galvatron from TFSource and they mailed them right in their sealed case.

A Transformer that only transforms halfway seems like selling a jigsaw puzzle with pieces missing. Hope they eventually do produce a better Slipstream toy, at least.

I'm really disapointed with this decision. Because I would have liked proper legend/ions Cyberverse designs for my characters collections. Take not much space and relatively easy on the wallet. But those halformers are just teases of what they could have been.

What a waste of plastic! Not for adult collectors. Meant for kids.

Thanks to user chuckdawg1999, we have an English review of Cyberverse Ultra Class Shockwave. Chuck bought his off Amazon, and came nice and early! He himself said:

Ultra Class Shockwave is a surprising addition to the Cyberverse line, it is by far the figure with the most articulation and most complicated transformation. Much like the Warrior class version, this Shockwave features an unobtrusive gimmick that if anything adds to the figure. If you're going to buy one Ultra Class figure, make it Shockwave. If you're going to buy one Cyberverse figure period, make it Shockwave.




The review detailed the figure, showing off Ultra Shockwave's surprising articulation, as well as his "Wave Cannon" Action Attack. The figure itself has a much more complicated transformation that the Warrior, which involves folding the cannon to his back, and then folding out an arm that doesn't have one. This also means you can allow him to have a cannon-less arm.

Reviews of his fellow Wave 2 figures can be found here.

Chuck seemed very happy about the figure, but what about you? Let us know in the Pub forums below!

So the gun arm doesn't pop off and peg into the top, it just swings around. Even better!

Yeah, I'm really glad I was right about the hidden arm. It would have been so easy for Hasbro to just make the gun pop off the end of his arm and call it a day, but moving the whole arm out of the way and slipping out a third arm is a real stroke of genius on their part.
