Our old pal chuckdawg1999 comes through with a new review of the Cyberverse Ultra Class Slipstream toy. This is her first figure that isn't a redeco and can actually transform completely! Wow! Chuck clearly enjoys the figure very much, putting it right under Ultra Class Shockwave. The Slipstream toy itslef has a more complex transformation than other figures, and has an interesting Action Attack: when squeezing the null rays, a rotor blade spins out behind the figure!

Chuck himself says:
chuckdawg1999 wrote:Ultra Class Slipstream is a good figure. While not overly articulated it does enough to have a fair amount of play value. The action gimmick is relatively unobtrusive and fun, while the transformation is surprisingly involved for a simplified figure. Overall I feel this is worth a look if not a purchase.


So thought's on this figure? Watch the video below and tell us your thoughts in the Pub forums below!

I guess ultra class doesn't mean ultra articulation

Even that's mostly for his transformation. Happy Accident.

Yeah, his knee joints arent even in the right place. Instead his knees are sculpted detail.

Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, Chuckdawg1999, (and thanks to fellow Seibertron user What's Crackin? for letting us know as well!) we now have a review of Transformers Cyberverse Warrior Class Soundwave! This figure's gimmick is that pressing the button on his shoulder causes Lazerbeak to fly out of Soundwaves chest! Note however that Lazerbeak is not detachable.

Here's a snippet of Chucks thoughts on the figure:

Chuckdawg1999 wrote:The Warrior Class from the Cyberverse line has been hit or miss, mostly miss. Soundwave benefits from a gimmick that isn't tied to a limb or something more intrusive. Yes it's still a simplified figure, and it doesn't have the articulation most collectors would want, but it's an overall good figure that I feel a lot of fans and collectors would be satisfied with.

Sticking with Transformers Cyberverse for this news as we have word that Amazon now have the Action Attackers Ultimate Class Bumblebee in stock and ready to buy for $29.99! This toy converts fully from Robot to Car and has a spring loaded gimmick in its left arm to replicate Bee's stingers from the cartoon. The gimmick can also be used in vehicle mode.

About Soundwave, he looks cool, might pick him up after I get Siege Megatron and SS38 Bumblebee Prime. ;)

Hmm. Deciding whether I should order Slipstream from there or wait to find it in the stores. Shouldn't take too long for it to be available here.

Just saw an Ultra Slipstream on eBay(listed as Chicago), so not too much longer.

EDIT: Whoops, that's Collection...

Fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has a review up for Transformers Cyberverse warrior Hot Rod. Here you will see what the articulation is, which has been a very detrimental factor for fans regarding this line. You will also see the gimmick in full display.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Hot Rod is an ok figure but I think a lot of collectors and fans are going to find it lacking. The flame gimmick is ok but it really doesn't do much and doesn't look to have any offensive purpose. Transformation is fun but there isn't a stand out wow moment. I think only fans of the character will really want the toy.

I guess we'll have to wait for the WFC trilogy for another good Hot Rod.

Hot Rod was this close to being good. The action feature makes no sense, but the transformation is easy and fun. If the car mode's grille wasn't an empty hole it might have tipped it over the edge.

Poor Warrior Class, it was so great (most of the time) during RiD.

I think we have plenty of Hot Rods to hold us over for a good while, with the 2 MP releases, deluxe, and POTP rdimus, plus the recent G1 reissue and MP 09 Reissue. I think we are good.
