Seibertron user and our old pal chuckdawg1999 bought a Cyberverse Warrior Class Megatron off Amazon second hand and made and sent us a review!

In the video he shows his Action Attack, with a spring loaded arm, which launches out his pink energon mace on a string. Chuck preferred this version over the Ultimate Class, but the figure still has problems, namely, the lack of a head-swivel. he himself said:

Warrior Class Megatron is a fun figure from the new Cyberverse line. In some ways, the figure is a bit better than the Ultimate Class version in terms of transformation and gimmick. Some might be disappointed by the lack of a head swivel and no elbow on the left arm, but it's an overall solid figure.


Reviews of the other Wave 2 figures can be found here.

So does this make you wanna buy the figure more? Or are you even less interested? Watch the video below and tell us your thoughts in the Pub forums below!

Spotted these two at Walmart today. They're not even in there system yet. Contemplated the fight it would have took to buy Shockwave, but passed.

Found Wave 2 Warriors at Walmart last night. They asked for a price prompt, but no real issues like I've had in the past when those pop up. Sadly, Windblade's only OK.

She looks like a K.O. of the R.I.D. figure, is that seriously the best Hasbro could do?

That is a question I had the moment I saw the figure. This is the first time in history we have ever had a mainline shockwave toy based on his G1 look at the voyager scale from Hasbro. Unlike other contenders for a spot on a classics shelf, he has most of the articulation points required (including awesome ankle tilt) and has the right look at every angle, especially the side and back with a G1 styled backpack.

However, this is still a toy from a line targetted at young kids with a more cartoon design than what we have seen in the Generations line. So, does he really work? Well I attempted to find out by purchasing him and taking photos of him next to various toys from the Generations line. Below are shots of him with his fellow decepticons, to show you how he scales, and to show you how the styles work (or don't) together.

Here he is putting up the good fight agains the autobots.

Image

Here he is victorious.

Image

And here he is ... not.

All in all, I think this works super well until we get a voyager sized shockwave in the Generations line.

I kind of feel as though that this article would be better suited for a smaller segment for a pictorial review. I don't want to come off as sounding rude, but then again, anything offends people online nowadays. :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

For me personally, I'd say no. Hell no. That figure is very obviously a kiddie toy, and does not fit in with all my other slightly less kiddie toys. [-(


Seriously though, I just wanted to be a smart ass. I'm actually not a good sounding board, as I've developed rather high standards for my collection. For me, the design aesthetic just doesn't match up with Generations figures. This figure looks, to me, made for small children, while the Chug line looks made for large children (and us cranky old men). I can, however, see how it might work for others, especially as we have never really gotten a good Shockwave figure for that line.


This figure would probably make it onto my shelf of "cool figures I just like for no real reason" though.

Yeah I'm just gonna go with this.

But at the end of the day, it comes down to the individual collector. It's THEIR collection, THEY should curate it how THEY choose to.

You wanna have a shelf of whacky coloured robots made up from G2 and other sub-lines? You go right ahead you crazy whack-a-doodle!
Now I feel the urge to set up a shelf of whacky coloured robots.

Thanks Will for putting big Shockey in perspective. Looks like a cool figure and I've heard nothing but good about it. Definitely added to the get eventually lost.

Personally (largely due to the rumored Siege Shockwave) it's going to be a definite no for me. It looks okay but as somebody who has always preferred my Shockwave to be purple instead of magenta, and as someone who generally dislikes the particular aesthetic of the line he is from, I'll wait and see what else will come along. Seriously why aren't more 3rd parties doing CHUG these days?

I know you were being facetious, but I wonder, is it truly obvious? I mean FOC Soundwave clashes just as much with the aesthetic but he too is a generations toy. Magnus is IDW and the upcoming Siege toys have that gritty detail to them. So with them all clashing somewhat I didnt feel one was more out of place.

I think because the demand is more for MP. Collectors feel they are getting a better deal especially when a 3p MP costs the same as a Takara MP, while a 3p CHUG costs 2-3 times the price of a Hasbro CHUG.

And purple is always hard to photograph but I can assure you that while he is not dark purple, it is a nice full purple colour. I wouldnt call it magenta.

i would have to say no not really, cyber battalion would be a better fit
cyberverse is a bit too different for generations to fit in with
it would be like trying to put Teen Titans Go Robin in with Young Justice as their Robin
it wont look right

Yeah, I see that point. Like I said though, it really just comes down to a personal choice/preference. It doesn't quite work for me, but I can see it working for others. It doesn't look bad at all.
