People have been showing a lot of images of barren Transformers shelves lately, which doesn't just suck for us collectors but for kids wanting to buy toys with their birthday money or parents looking for Transformers toys. Well, looks like a new Cyberverse Dinobots Unite Subline is slowly making it's way onto Canadian and American shelves to start bringing more life to them. Canada just got the Dinobot combiners Bumblebeswoop and Slugtron. They retail for $36 CAD and were found at Walmart. Those two are the only ones that come in the cases being sent so the other dinobot combiners will appear in a different wave. The bigger Roll and Change Optimus Prime and Bumblebee toys were also found at Walmart and can be seen in the same image.

In the US, things are starting really slow with the first items coming to shelves being the reviled scout class figures. Reports come from all across the US. They are all rereleases with nothing new, but they do include Ramjet who some liked since he does give the illusion of fully transforming from one mode to the next. More are bound to come, especially since they are appearing in Canada.

The reality of how messed up supply chains are right now hit me when some local Targets did their late summer toy reset and didn't even have Cyberverse stuff to fill the space with. Not finding desirable stuff is typical, but usually there's at least plenty of kid product when these hit. Not this time.

Obviously this is all anecdotal and potentially localized, but I've been collecting for a long time and brick and mortar has never been this devoid of TF product. I don't blame the stores or even Hasbro, stuff is just clogged up.

It's been the same here, especially after both Walmart and Target clearanced out the 1 Step figures. All that's left is some peg warming Deluxe figures (mostly Megatron and Shockwave). I've also been surprised by how empty the Rescue Bot section is. Though one of my local Walmarts did restock a bunch of RB Optimus and Bumblebee figures (vehicles, not the current Dino stuff), but put them on the Cyberverse 1 Step pegs. Oops, let's see how long it takes for those to get moved, if ever.

Finally decided to get that seeker squadron pack. These figures are pretty neat but I wished that the bonus member was Splitstream instead of Thrust and that TC was clear like his teammates. Plus no landing gears make the planes tilt around.

Still for what they are, they are well worth the 13$CAN each toys.

That didn't take long. After only a week of being found in Canada, the Transfomrers Cyberverse Dinobots Unite Roll N Change Optimus Prime and Bumblebee are appearing at US Walmarts as part of the back to school reset currently underway. Regardless of what you feel on the line, it's good to have some Transformers toys on shelves and we hope that means more is underway. Both are $50 and that hefty price tag is due to them being larger than even ultimate class Cyberverse figures, with more accessories (detachable armour) and lights and sounds. Intrepid TF fan Cardion took a bullet for all of us and bought the Optimus Prime figure on Amazon to see what it was all about and was rather surprised by this child's toy. You can read the full review below but in short, they seemed impressed with the auto converting gimmick which is more involved than previous attempts and they were surprised by the articulation in the upper half after assuming (as we all did) that this figure was just a brick. Of course, the gimmick being involved means there are lots of steps to get it back to vehicle mode and the lower half of the body is almost devoid of articulation as we all could guess.

Enjoy the pics and the review along with this video showing the gimmick.



First impression: He's okay.

The Negatives: The primary auto-transform, which is his big selling feature, is on a hair-trigger. This made him a bit of a pain to transform into truck. Plus, the auto-transform still requires a bit of shoulder manipulation. Also, those legs are both immobile and can do the splits. Pretty crazy.

The Positives: Upper body was more flexible and articulated than I expected. His head sculpt is a gorgeous show accurate representation, and his head can pivot! I love his weight. He feels very solid. I can imagine 8-year old me going crazy over the light and sound clips (very short though). The sword and claws are a nice touch, although I'm not a fan of the chest armor. He sizes pretty well with my one large Cyberverse Megatron.

Overall: Good toy. Fun. Probably could have waited for him to go on sale for $45 or $40 though. For what he is, I'm super-glad I got him.

TF fan Chico reached out to us to let us know that they found the Transformers Cyberverse Adventures Dinobots Unite Roll and Change Bumblebee at a Walmart in California for $49.67. While they only found Bumblebee, the toy's wavemate is Optimus Prime. These are both big toys that have an auto converting gimmick. Chuckdawg has a video review of the Optimus figure below. and I made a review of the Bumblebee figure, which I really did not like (would not recommend to parents for their kids).

Optimus Prime features lights and sounds as well as some snap-on Energon blue body armor. The included sword is a great weapon but is also used as a lock to the changing gimmick. While the price might be a bit high for most, the toy is a solid, beefy, fun figure.

The new Transformers Cyberverse Dinobots Unite combiners were found in Canada a little while ago (image of sighting below) and now we have a video review for both the Slugtron and Bumbleswoop combiners. Each of those consist of an Autobot or Decepticon paired up with a Dinobot. We will be getting a combiner for each of the five Dinobots, it seems. They use the same mechanisms as the RID crash combiners but are much larger, as you can see from comparisons in the videos.

Enjoy!

We have news that the Transformers Cyberverse Dinobots Unite Slugtron and Bumbleswoop combiners have been found at US retail. Thlinux found them at a local Walmart in Pooler, GA. The Slugtron set comes with Dinobot Slug and Megatron while the Bumbleswoop set comes with Swoop and BUmblebee. We have already seen another set coming later with Wheeljack and Grimlock. These retail for $25 USD. To get an idea of the size of these, since they are much bigger than the previous crash combiners, you can look at the two video reviews below.

With the new Cyberverse Dinobot combniner 2 packs making the rounds in Canada and the US, some fans are asking if it's possible to mix and match, especially with just the dinos. And it turns out, yes you can. Here is an image below of Swoop combined with Slug. You can see how it looks like front and back. Of course, the issue is that the combiner head is no longer a combination of the two bots. These sets can be found at Walmart right now in the US and Canada for $25 and $36 respectively.

I'll have to look up for these.
I like that Energon vibes from Grimswoop. 8-)

I think the TF:Energon combiners had better appearance and articulation. This just seems rushed and gimmicky.

I have many Energon combiners and they CANNOT be compared to the Cyberverse duocons. First, the Energon ones were deluxes. And those deluxes were BIG. The Cyberverse are barely legends scale and they have an automorph gimmick. That design is from years ago in the RiD line. There is a gimmick, but there's no "rush" here. Well, unless you want fast gameplay.

So, apples and oranges, really.

Still, one thing you can compare both to are their weird proportions and the fact that most bots are silly looking. Especially in combined mode. Like, really. Don't tell me that this Swoop/Grimlock combined mode look "good":

Image

It also can't pose at all due to the top-heaviness.

That is the exception, not the rule. I meant in general for that line. Ironhide+Jetfire. Rodimus+Prowl. Outside of that Dinobot combiner, all the others in that line are far higher in quality and poseability than these are.

Once again, I have to point out that it's an unfair comparison. My initial comment was about those Cyberverse thing to be "in the spirit" of the old Energon combiners. Not "exactly like them".

You point out "poseability" and "quality". "Quality" make no sense because they are pretty solid in hand and the gimmicks work perfectly. Nothing break here. As for posing, you cannot compare these at all because they are not in the same category. If the individual bots of those Cyberverse duocon teams were the same size and the same price as deluxe figures each, then maybe. But here, it's like comparing regular WFC deluxes with the 1 steps Cyberverses.
What's next, comparing oranges to bowling balls? 8-}

I hate most of the autobot deluxes from Energon. That Hot Shot is one of the worst toys of all time. I preffer this cyberverse Megatron/Slug over him for sure.

Anyways, these Cyberverse toys are more about the combined gimmick and not the individual modes (which I admit, are not good). It was the inverse with the Energon deluxes which don't even have a combiner head.

Also, them being simpler in articulation and design means that a younger audience can appreciate these, despite what it says on the box. While the Energon figures would be too complex (possibly) for 3-4 year olds.

That's because they weren't true "Combiners" per se, but were instead a new take on "Powerlinxing", in which one Autobot augmented the other instead of it being a Mini-Con who augmented the Autobot in question. It's like when Optimus Powerlinxed with Jetfire and/or Overload, who augmented Optimus's super mode instead of making a new combined identity. The Energon gimmick was basically "Every Autobot gets a Super Mode with help from someone or something else".

Just to guve an idea of the size of these toys, they are 1 step size, exactly.
So much bigger than legends size and less than a head shorter than deluxe size.

So they are not the same size as the previous batch, who were just a re-release and repaints of the RiD Crash Combiners?
Nice for the size increase, but unfortunate for the cross-compatibility.
