You've got to love it when Amazon tries to be coy by sticking with code names while giving us a full look at the figure. That doesn't seem to be changing any time soon, the latest cases being our first look at stock photos of two Cyberverse Scouts on Amazon.com.au. This time around it's Ratchet under the name "Aces" and Shadow Striker under the name "Rockhounds". We got a look at these two in bot mode at New York Comic Con and later we got CG pictures, but this is our first look at both modes of the actual figures.

These are basically what you'd expect from the Scout class; barely acceptable bot modes and half an alt mode with an action feature. Ratchet's "Grapple Grab" is a crane that swings up over his shoulder. Shadow Striker's "Stealth Sniper Shot" isn't a shot at all, but rockets that come out of the back of her "car" mode. Because of her feature being in the back we've yet to actually see any pictures of her alt mode from the front as the rockets have been the focus.

The front of that Ratchet's ambulance hood is the same as Animated Ratchet's:

I'm likely to buy Shadow Striker, depending on the size of her head, because it's definitely not for the toy itself. I like the character, being that she's a femcon with a sports car alt mode, but I'm thinking a Transformers Prime Deluxe Vehicon that actually transforms would make for a better Shadow Striker in my CHUG collection. I just have to find a suitable Shadow Striker head to put in place of the Vehicon's.

Interesting that Cyberverse Shadow Striker's head looks to be based more on the original Side Burn (AKA Speedbreaker) head..

rather than the retooled head created for the original Roulette and Shadow Striker:

It's kinda disheartening to see how close Shadowstriker is to actually having a proper alt mode. A backpack and a flip up chest would have done it for her.

These half-formers really needed more thought

Instead, she has a rocket-powered, ground-based, rolling skydiver mode. :P

If you did not know yet, the entire Cyberverse toyline is based around gimmicks. We knew Soundwave would have a Laserbeak gimmick but we never really got a good look at it. It turns out Lazerbeak will be made of clear red plastic and a third of his body (before you get to the wings) will be popping out of Soundwave's chest. This is for the Warrior Soundwave toy. We also have images of Warriors Prowl and Hot Rod as well as Ultimate Bumblebee and One Steps Megatron, Bumblebee and Prowl. While we did just get a One Step Cyberverse Megatron, this one has a new transformation and a missile firing gimmick.

Enjoy all the pics below, which were found on Hasbro's site.

It looks like Laserbeak put on some weight and got his big butt stuck inside Soundwave. Looking less like a condor and more like a chicken. Time for a New Year's resolution diet to get rid of that excess badonkadonk.

Yea, and looks like a skinned raw chicken is coming out of the oven.

If SIEGE's effect parts would fit on his shoulder cannons :-?

It looks like Laserbeak can't be removed?

Regardless, with that colour scheme for Laserbeak...

Was gonna say the same thing. Is that Soundwave's new alt-mode now? An oven? Eh, still probably a better alt-mode than a tape-deck these days since most folk still use ovens.

These toys... they look pretty lousy. I dunno. Maybe they're more fun to play with than look at. One step and flip and change thingies were pretty poor looking but I could understand the quick transform appeal for younger folk.

If so they can retool him into Helex (DJD).

Warriors look OK, nothing exciting. Ultimate Bumblebee would be pretty nice if not for the gimmick taking over his arm.

BTW, been playing around with Ultimate Optimus and he really isn't a terrible figure. He isn't a particularly good figure, but he does have some interesting features that he probably didn't have to have like the folding panels on his shoulders and the panel under his feat that forms the sides of the truck. Plus he has a TON of paint on the cab. His chest doors are clear blue and mostly painted over along with large spring-loaded portion of the top of the truck. All for the sake of having clear windows. I also like the atypical leg transformation so his toes aren't sticking out the back. I'm sure we've seen that before, but I can't think when. And I'm digging the low profile truck mode, it's wide and low. Shame the gimmick is annoying as all hell and likes to pop out if you accidentally hit the button or just barely tap the top of the truck. Still, if you like the cartoon and can find one on sale then go for it.

Some already beat me to the chest burster.


Looks like a fun gimmick and is that the Soundwave with that sweet mural?

Ha, jeez and thanks. I can't keep track of all these toys. Guess you newsies need to do a "all the Soundwave toys of 2019" article ;)

I remember seeing the pop-o-matic chest minion gimmick somewhere and thought it was cool and fitting of the character and the line wide gimmick. Both Cyberverse and the Bee toys have very fun toy gimmicks.

Whelp, I guess that's two C-list Soundwaves I'll be considering 8-}

In this case, Lazerbeak popping out of Soundwave makes me think of the chest bursters from Aliens.
