Thanks to our own D-Maximal_Primal, we've been alerted to two previously unseen Cyberverse multipacks. The first, from user @ARCTIC_STORM on Twitter, shows us a recolor of Repugnus' 1-Step changer in a color scheme meant to evoke Cybertron Undermine. Fitting, as Cybertron Repugnus was a redeco of that line's Undermine. This Repugnus (he's still labeled as such) is branded a Decepticon, though, and includes three smaller Repugni(?) Who appear to be non-transforming monsterbots, likely as a callback to the Cyberverse episode "Journey to the Valley of Repugnus", which features multiple bots with the exact same altmode.

Transformers News: New Transformers Cyberverse Cybertronian Villains Multipacks Discovered

This image appears to show the set at retail, and given that previous "Cybertronian Villains" sets were Target exclusives, its likely it was found at Target, though there's nothing in the picture to confirm this.

Next up is from an eBay auction for a Seeker Multipack first rumored earlier this year. It features four Seekers who are redecoes of the recent Warrior Class Starscream figure who had a Cybertronian altmode. Included are Thrust in a color scheme more reminiscent of his G1 incarnation, inverted, though with a healthy dose of yellow; Skywarp in her show accurate mostly purple colors (Skywarp is female in Cyberverse), and Thundercracker and Starscream in more traditional decos (until you get to the wings). Interestingly, Skywarp and Starscream are both packaged in jet modes, while Thrust and Thundercracker are in robot mode.

Oops. My mistake (now fixed). I'm very unfamiliar with the whole Unicron Trilogy, so I had to research the figure and got them mixed up.

Skywarp is female in Cyberverse. :-?

After Splitstream and female Starscream in the French dub of the 1986 TF Movie, I think that the Seekers can gender-swap with absolutely no problem. And without changing body type that much if at all too!
;)

It looks as if the mini monsterbots do transform as you can see a ball joint to flip the heads down. The sharkticon pack and 3 mini sharks that transformed so these probably change into mini robots as well.

The Repugnus set is adorable, and the Seeker one is awesome. Target’s getting a ton of exclusives here lately, more exclusives in the last year than in the last three or four I’d say.

First reaction: Holy snap, we're getting toys of all those Monsterbots/Energon Masters?!!!!

*rewatches episode*

Second reaction: Aw man, none of those decos in that set match with any of the Monsterbots/Energon Masters seen onscreen. Unless their names are given somewhere on the box, they're all just generics. No Repugnus, Stinkus, Coolus, Hippus, Raddus, Operatus, Affluous, Fabulous, or Teknicus.

Nova Storm and (most of the time) Acid Storm are female in Cyberverse too (I say "most of the time" since there were a few shots in Season 1 where Acid Storm was rendered with a male Seeker design instead of the female one that she had more often and ultimately settled on in Season 2).

And so is Cosmos.

As I understood, Acid Storm was genderfluid, so that's why they switched between male and female. At least, that's what the writers said (to cover the animation inconsistencies).

I hope it was tongue-in-cheek sarcasm from the writers because genuinely pandering to the woke fringe never end well.

I'm still curious how Starscream (and Ratchet) would have been written if they were female since day one in G1? Would Ratchet have become a "sexy nurse"? Would Starscream still be a schemer, a coward, and Megatron's punching bag? :-?

I doubt it was sarcasm, just a way to cover animation errors. Nothing more, nothing less.

Ratchet would probably have been a battleax nurse considering the character is named after Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

I would so love to see that. Cold, austere, dry, and mean woman who is too old to deal with this sh!t. A bit like Animated Ratchet, but meaner. Of course, she would be best doctor and always mean well in the end despite her awful attitude.

So a female House then?

Both of those sets look pretty dang nice. I definitely will get the repugnus set. Those are really cute! And that will give me 7 Repugnus total, something i never thought I would say.

Seeker set looks cool, interested to see a price and also see if it goes on sale. I think I want those.

also cool that the female Skywarp is getting a toy. It is nice to have the gender differences in the seekers.

That is gonna be a great set. Though I kinda wish Slipstream had got a better toy, she deserved it.

Skywarp's deco looks more like Nova Storm's, which makes me wonder if some wires got crossed on which female purple Seeker they had in mind for this set.

Fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999 has a new review for us. This is of the only new Cyberverse warrior class toy in the current wave hitting stores now, Cybertronian Optimus Prime.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Hard to believe but we finally have a good Warrior Class Optimus Prime. Transformation is smooth with some nice touches here and there and a gimmick that doesn't interfere with the overall robot mode. Is it simplified, yes; but the end result is a solid deluxe class Optimus Prime figure.

It turns out ultra class Thunderhowl looks great without the cape in wolf mode.

Somehow missed their article 4 days ago, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the Galaxian-Seeker and Repugni sets at the Wonderland Target today!

Sorry I still don't have a camera handy, but lil' Huey-, Dewey-, and Louie-pugnus DO transform! They have zero arm-articulation in either mode, which makes their fist-peg-holes rather pointless and renders them lame compared to the surfer-Sharkticons that came with 1-step Charred-Rod, but they do transform. Makes me wonder how many collectors will buy an extra set so they can slice the arms off an re-peg them for movement.

And as cool as the seeker quartet looks now, all that clear plastic on #s 2 and 4 has me worried about their longevity, especially the main folding joint on each wing.

Still don't see why any mention of "gender-fluid" elicits an overreaction around here. Years before PotP Cindersaur, Futurama established robot-gender-fluid as a thing, though they called it "femmzoil". And considering how many fans are probably going to repurpose this set's Starscream into Redwing or Ramjet upon opening if they already have this mold's original Screamer, projecting different genders and personalities onto them will surely be downright nonchalant in headcanon.
