Several fans have been buying the newly found Transformers Cyberverse Ultra Thunderhowl and now we have images and first impressions. For one, we have confirmation that you can remove the cape (though there are no images of the Wolf mode without it) and we also see that the tail is not the sword but the sheath instead.

Here are quick descriptions of the toy from Dirge121 and einhazard who shared their thoughts on the TFW2005 boards along with the images you see below.

Dirge121 wrote:Ball joints in the shoulders and hips
Swivels at the biceps and thighs
Hinge knees and elbows
Ball jointed wrists and Universal ankles
Wolf head can open its mouth and pivot up and down at the base of the neck and the base of the skull.

He’s really only missing a neck swivel in robot mode.


einhazard wrote:Pros:
Cool design; I like that the tail is a sheath rather than a sword
The energon armor isn't super obtrusive (you can just straight-up ignore its existence if you want)
Transformation that's a little more complex than I thought. (but it's still basically the same as the armor-up cheetor)
crazy articulation for an Ultra

Cons:
The cape MUST BE REMOVED to do the armor but they don't make it easily removable (this is the worst part, and would not be a hassle if you didn't have to apply a stupid amount of force to get it to clip in. Ironically, you can transform him just fine with the cape on)
You have to pull the wolf head off the chest to make the armor work
Floppy hips

I think having to take the wolf head off for the armor can be forgiven in light of what a cool sword hilt it makes

Also its show accurate, which means the deluxe figure isn't, sadly

This! For sure! ;)^

Please remind me friends, we are getting a Deluxe of this guy too right?
Because this version looks pretty dang cool. I might like to have this biggon over the deluxe.

Yes, there is a Deluxe too. But the wolf head doesn't appear to detach from that version.

Shame that we're getting two nice Thunderhowl molds and neither of them are the right colors. The prototype on the back of the Ultra box is pretty close, but then they go and make him green. I don't get it, how could that happen? Usually it's the other way around and the prototype is funny colored while the final figure is more accurate, but this is strange. It's like Hasbro came up with the black scheme for the prototype, but the animation went green and then both swapped not realizing the other was swapping and ended up with still the wrong colors.

Wouldn't be the first time something like that happened. A recent example being Bumblebee from the latest Movie. It's one thing for a normal retail toy. But even the freaking MPM is wrong.

Or it's the dumb movie that's wrong for hiding the door wings

One way or the other, it's always a matter of miscommunication.

Basically ZeldaTheSwordsman doesn't think the animators should have ceded to the directors request that Bee lose his signature door wings in a bid to make bee look smaller.

The whole color situation with Thunderhowl's toys vs. his cartoon model feels like Armada Tidal Wave all over again.

I was thinking the same thing, although that at least had a reason given. This, we don't know yet.

Pretty much.

It is a shame neither toy is particularly accurate. But both seem pretty good, so it can be excused!

Greetings Seibertronians! With the recent in hand pictures of Ultra Class Thunderhowl, it was only a matter of time before someone delivered us a video review, and it fellow Seibertron user, Chuckdawg1999 that stepped up to the plate!

Check out what Chuck had to say about this toy and watch his review embedded below!

Chuckdawg1999 wrote:Thunderhowl is a really cool figure. Articulation is good, better than most Ultra Class figures and the transformation is surprisingly involved for a kid friendly figure. I really like the play between the sword, wolf head, and tail. Definitely recommended if you are looking for something different




Will you be adding this chivalrous character to your collection? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!
