The official Transformers Facebook page is now showing 3d renders of the first wave of Transformers Cyberverse figures. We see a few additions to the ones we already knew of ealier today. I have also set up a handy guide showing which characters and price points constitute each class so far.

Scout Class: Similar size to the scout class of old but that is where the similarities end. These are all based on an action gimmick and, from the image shown, it does not seem like any of them fully transform into their alt modes. That would definitely explain the price point being only $8 as compared to the current Legends class seen in Generations. We can see Bumblebee, Megatron, Grimlock and Starscream below.

Warrior Class: Deluxe sized figures which seem simpler than the previous Warrior class toys we got in RID. They each have an action gimmick. We can see Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Shockwave and Starscream below. $15 Price point.

Ultra Class: Voyager size wth simplified tranformation and focus on gimmick. Very similar to RID Power Surge Class. We can see Bumblebee, Grimlock and Starscream below. $20 Price point.

Ultimate Class: Leader size but with simplified articulation and complexity, similar to the bigger Cyber Battalion figures we have seen in the past. These however will include an added action gimmick. We can see Optimus Prime and Megatron below. $30 Price point.

While renders do may not be optimal to get a good sense of how these will look, this image below contains the actual finished products of Ultra Starscream, Scout Megatron, Ultimate Optimus (showing his Matrix gimmick) and Warrior Bumblebee.

I think Scout Class may be a non-starter for my son since they don't fully transform.

Not too bad so far. Grimlock's dino mode is a little goofy-looking, but I like Shockwave's tank mode. I kind of like the idea of each figure having a "special move", too.

The classes of figures have me confused with me mainly sticking to the legends/deluxe/voyager types but some of the figures look good whilst the others are uggghh. I'd even say some of these look better than RID15 and POTP versions. If the Optimus had a flap/fold to actually have hands not surrounded by kibble it might have been a decent Optimus but not much point when they haven't put any effort into Megatron.

They look pretty neat so far. Here's to hoping they are of good quality.

The RID Decepticons were all new and exciting. Sure, we also got Stascream, Soundwave and the Stunticons but those designs were all new and fun.

I wouldn't exactly call "robot animal stereotypes" new and exciting.

To this day I still have to resist the urge to swear every time I remember the word "Buffaloid."

F*ck.

Well Shockwave and Starscream look decent, and for $15 I'm going for them, but nothing else looks that great.

At face value this line doesn't seem too different from Robots in Disguise, the only figure that really piques my interest is Warrior Shockwave. I'm sure kids will like them, and I hope they succeed in the marketplace, though I think this is another line I'll mostly skip.

Grimlock's Dino head has a very cute face! Pass all but Shockwave.

they are new and exciting to me, at least. I dropped the show after the 3rd episode, and was about to drop the toyline, until i saw that the animalistic decepticons gets an actual toy. Those beastly decepticon are what got me into RID toyline. It just feels fresh and exciting for me.

Hell yeah, if the following is not fresh and exciting compared to Optimus being a red truck cab, Megatron being a grey tank and Bumblebee being a yellow car, then I dont know what is.

Other returning characters got fresh new looks too, like Starscream, which pays homage to previous designs while being a new design all of his own.

Even the Optimus toys were pretty fresh and new in design by comparison, incorporating the trailer ala Star Convoy. Gave a bunch of potential to Hasbro and Takara, which they didnt fail on providing.

Basically, I cant think of anything more fresh than RID this side of Beast Wars.

"Animated" I considered fresh and exciting. The IDW post-war comics I consider fresh and exciting.

A robot lobster that hates land-bound robots or a robot bee queen that is vulnerable to cold are not the pinnacle of creativity.

I really hope they are going for a more Fall of Cybertron, or even G1 Grimlock than a RID or TLK :michaelbay: Grimlock.

We are talking about differet things then, I was only referring to designs, with this being a thread about the toyline. I am not that much into the fiction (aside from some comics but even then its not what i was referring to).

Yeah these don’t look great. But if the quality on Shockwave isn’t too bad, it could make for a decent figure. A diamond among coals, so to speak. Oh and I find it neat that Grimlock takes some ques from the current IDW design. Prime does too. Too bad Generations doesn’t.
