Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user and YouTube toy reviewer, Chuckdawg1999, stopped by to let us know that he's done a new video review of Transformers Cyberverse One Step Ratchet!

Heres what Chuckdawg1999 has to say about Ratchet:
chuckdawg1999 wrote:It's a new One-Step figure and you know the drill. These are simplified figures that are meant more as fiddle toys than full "Bells and whistles" Transformers. In the Cyberverse line these One-Steps have the bonus of a little action feature. In Ratchet's case two blades can spring-loaded, flip out of Ratchets arms. For most of you, you've made your decision on One-Step figures already but for the rest, give Ratchet a chance.


We've embedded the review below for your convenience:



What do you think of this version of the classic character? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user and YouTube toy reviewer, Ham-Man, has dropped us a line to tell us that they have just done a video review of the recently released Transformers Cyberverse Battle Call Optimus Prime!

Check out his thoughts on the figure and check out the embedded video review below:

Ham-Man wrote:So much play value here, I lost a lot of time on this one. Gimmick aside he is still a great Prime figure, it's rare especially in this kind of line for the gimmick not to adversely affect the playability and poseability.

This guy just arrived, and he'll be one of 2 Thunderhowl's I ultimately end up getting. He was cool enough as an Ultra to get 2 of, plus they both do some very different things.

He's quite a neat Ultra class! The amount of articulation in his legs and arms is really good, he's Siege level of posing. Still needs a head and waist, but he's seriously quite nice to move around! I love the wolf head sword too. Tail is a bit bothersome in robot mode, it kinda gets in the way, but it's not bad, plus you can use it as a scabbard, even if it and the cape clash a little.

He's really worth it. He, Clobber, and Rack n' Ruin have proven to be great ultra class figures. I'm glad those 3 got more effort put into them!

I really hope they use him again in another continuity

There are multiple characters from recent shows that I hope get absorbed into the wider TF world, and he is certainly one. He was a pretty gun guy to have in Cyberverse, and I would not mind him, Clobber, Meteorfire, Hammerbyte, and Wild Wheel showing up more.

Exactly, all of them deserve to shine, not just in Cyberverse. I mean imagine an Storyline involving the true knights of Cybertron like Thunderhowl and BW Silverbolt, as an interdimensional police force :-?

Are his robot mode eyes supposed to be unpainted silver?

I really really love that Cyberverse arcee. Everything about her is excellent. It's just a very well made toy all around and it is the best Cyberverse figure we have so far. All just my opinion of course. I do like all the deluxes, except for Hot Rod and truly wish this is what the Cyberverse line was all about. Using the same complexity and detail of the deluxe class and giving us that at a multiple different classes suiting the characters. I kid you not but if that is what the Cyberverse line would have been, then I am pretty sure it would be the standout line from hasbro (like Transformers Prime was), beating out Studio Series and Earthrise.

After picking up the Meteorfire and Whildwheel toys, I think it just hit me that the "Autobots Unite!" and "Decepticons Attack!" glowing power-ups in the show were meant to be an advertisement of the Battle Call gimmick, since the whole gimmick is "Yelling equals glowing."

I know, but they also aren't the only ones in the Battle Call assortment.

so now that Tarn has made it into the Cyberverse series, what do you think the odds are of us getting an action figure of him?

Not likely since it was just a last-episode cameo.

And it's not Tarn.

After finally getting the big gimmicky Splitstream because 50% off, I can say that I regret nothing.

She's way, WAY better than expected. Sure, there's the usual hollow parts and lack of articulations. Contrary with most other bots of her wave, she's great looking in bot mode with awesome colors that don't feel cheap. Plus that jet mode is surprisingly sleek and streamlined.

Finally the gimmick is funny. A jet with a propeller. Why not? :APPLAUSE:

Well, here are some thoughts.

alt mode is shite, that we all knew. And you can't really do much with it since it's springloaded to transform.

But the springloaded transformation is really fun, I like how inserting the sword and then removing it triggers the transformation. It's great, very enjoyable.

robot mode isn't overly posable, legs are basially a wash due to the gimmick, though the arms are still fully posable. No head movement, as is the norm, but the detailing on this cyberverse figure is quite impressive. I really like how imposing the robot mode is. The shield is a little awkward since the tab is on the underside instead of side of the arm, but it still works. The armor looks pretty nice too, I'm tempted to do a little touchup work on it, it matches his armored headcrest nicely.

Overall, it's a nice piece. I enjoy it. I hope we get a good Titan sized figure of this War Titan some day

So is that the back of his alt? Or his front end?

I have no idea, probably supposed to be the back since it has thrusters.

Iaconus made his way into the Cyberverse shelf. He looks appropriately large next to the rest of the Resistance
