Thanks to our own ScottyP, we have word that the latest wave of Cyberverse Warrior Class figures is currently out at retail in the U.S.! They were found at a Walmart in Raleigh, North Carolina, for the near bargain price of $11.92. Scotty sent us photo proof of Jetfire on the shelves, and let us know that his wavemates Drift and a new-mold Bumblebee were also available.

Wait... There weren't any confirmed reports of him being at U.S. retail yet? I picked mine up at Walmart about 3-4 weeks ago.

once again seibertron.com is a day late and a dollar short. I've owned this jetfire (and drift) for the better part of 2 months now. this website isnt doing anybody any service by posting these sightings so late in the game. pick up the pace a little bit. this website seems to be more geared towards selling ad space and marked up toys. thanks, I guess...

Pleased to say that Jetfire's the best Warrior in the line, or at least the best since Shockwave. The only gimmick is the fastpacks and that's totally fine! Still small and a little hollow but that's all I expect anyways from this class.

Agreed. They could've released this as a Deluxe and I still would've bought it.

How do you find Gnaw, is he any good? He intrigues me. Is Drift in the same wave as this Jetfire?

I saw plenty of Drifts with Jetfire at Walmart a few nights ago, so they probably are in the same wave.

I have a quick question, Which of these spark armor wave figures offer best value for money on a low budget? (i can only afford one at a time this saturday, they're so expensive here)

    Bumblebee/Sea Storm
    Spark Armor Prowl
    Jetfire/Tank Cannon
Not sure with Sky-Byte too much clashing yellow.

Jetfire/Tank Cannon (I've heard of loose limbs)

In my honest opinion, you’re gunna want Shockwave if you can find him. The armor isn’t obtrusive, and aside from head articulation, nothing was sacrificed. Honestly I feel it to be better than the Warrior class one (but both are about to get outclassed by the new Deluxe one).

even if hot pink/purple spider tank shockwave was great enough...he's not available. It's mostly wave 1 warriors and wave 1 elites (big ones)

Skybyte is the best of those simply because of the transformation. The others are rather laclluster, especiallly jetfire.

I would highly recommend Sky Byte and Ratchet. Those 2 are really good, and Sky Byte makes an awesome shark, and the drill tank is cool

It's a shame about Jetfire, I have him and yeah his figure itself is pretty eh but his tank is in my opinion the best of the ones I handled (I have him Shockwave and Sky Byte)

Looks like im going after one of the big figures on saturday in my Kids Cool'Shop (new Toys'R'us in Europe) .
That store has a lowered christmas gift price on the ultra class figures meaning they are cheaper than the smaller figures in the rival store. :-D Sadly Sky-Bite was sold out or not in stock.

So either its either Spark Armor Jetwing Prime or Ocean Storm Bumblebee. (Not going for shopping online, i hate long shipping times in Europe) Not going after Megs so many design so flaws.

Which one :-?

    Optimus has a big hip skirt in robot mode and the gatling guns are rather hollow.
    Bumblebee robot has arm kibble.
    Both armors have restricted movement


as for Megatron, his mace is a eysore in helicopter mode and his tank form is just ugly.

Go for Optimus then, it has the best combined mode and the optimus figure is serviceable in both modes.

The smaller ones (skybyte, ratchet and shockwave) are still better toys though even though you may think you are getting less for your money.

he's kinda iffy with the obvious blue spot head in truck mode and his feet end up really fat. Does anyone know which one has a better full range similar to this type of movement?

Picked up spark armor bee. Looks like the rival store next to KidsCoolShop had a very 18% unexpected Tax Free weekend giving me minute a 4400 ISKR deal compared to 4999. So happy i did a last minute check :-D

And the elbows on Ocean Storm elbows are more tight than i thought. But good grief positioning Bees hips and legs to be aligned evenly for standing straight instead of leening to the side is just so!!! :BOOM: But i know he needs that stiffness beacause of the armor weight.
Still very very good toy and better than my Warrior Class Sting Shot Bumblebee. ;)^ (Gosh that one and his shoulder kibble is messy from the rear side.)

Overall 7 out of 10. Good paint applications on the ship and fun armor. Bumblebee kinda has a impression of being shocked that someone stabbed.
This upgrade is undoubtedly a good but expensive purchase in the my Cyberverse collection compared to Warrior Sting Shot Bee

Greetings Seibertronians! Today we bring you a brand new video review of Transformers Cyberverse Ultra Class Prowl! This review was made by fellow Seibertron user and toy reviewer, Chuckdawg1999.

Check out what Chuck has to say about this toy below:

We have embedded the video below for your convenience, so please have a look and share your thoughts on this toy:



What do you think of this version of Prowl? Is it enough of a change from the Bumblebee it was remolded from? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

This Whirl is a "one step" toy. I use quotes because while it is as simple in articulation as all one steps, it actually has 4-5 steps depending on how you count it. While the bulk of the transformation is pulling down the cockpit, which slides the entire robot body down, you then have to flip the feet, fold the rotor and bring up the tail to keep the rotor from flailing around. The extra transformation steps make the rotors add a nice design to his back. In helicopter mode, the rotor moves freely, as should always be the case.

The robot mode is nice though. The proportions are about right. He mainly takes inspiration from the Generations toy and I think the design is even better here, especially with the legs. I also think he looks better in helicopter mode than the Generations version did. The biggest change from usual Whirl look is the head sculpt which I find fascinating. It's length is shortened and while it looks slightly smaller than normal, the cyclopean eye is bigger, for the head. So that gives the head an overall chibi (super deformed) aesthetic. He looks pretty cute for a crazed bot.

In robot mode, the left arm has a similar gimmick to the T30 Generations toy where the claw hand can sprout when activated. The two arms are the only parts that are articulated in robot mode.

Image

Image

Overall, when it comes to a one step toy, this is as good as we have gotten so far, since both modes look rather good.
