Via the Peruvian fan group on Facebook Transformers PerĂ¹, we have a new set of listings of toys bound to arrive in stores and retailers in the country in the short to mid term future for a number of Transformers toylines. The highlight of the post, in the images seen below, is twofold: alongside Generations Power of the Primes deluxes and the Authentics line (which we are already seeing across the globe), we have some more figures for Cyber Battalion - the voyager-esque sized simplified toys, including Jetfire (again), Prowl, Shockwave, and Sideswipe!

Check out the image and the wave breakdown below, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

I wonder if Shockwave and Sideswipe will be new figures or retools of existing ones like Jetfire was? Maybe retools of Megatron and Bumblebee?

Even if I only get a shockwave at the level of the Optimus prime out of this, I'm happy.

Kinda disappointed they aren't including Megatron with the upcoming Cyber Battalion. Never found one of those. He seems to be the short packed character, and pretty much the only one I was truly interested in.

Got a couple. They're definitely cheaper plastic and design. Much less articulation. But as a plus, they are a decent size and make for a good representation of the character on the cheap if you just stand them on the shelf in the back. For instance, Jetfire looks pretty decent in both modes and is pretty big. Jet is almost as big as the recent main line one. But, yeah, he's still pretty bad.

I own (and love) the Jetfire from this line. Yes, it's simple, but it looks good, it's sturdy, and it's not a nightmare to transform. I am allllll about Shockwave.

Product codes! Lovely lovely product codes! *swims in them, throws them in the air and has them land on his head*

Ahem, sorry. Everything has been logged, and crosschecked, and can confirm that Prowl and Jetfire are reissues, not redecos like that second Cyber Commander Optimus Prime was. I will hazard a guess that Shockwave and Sideswipe will be retools of Megatron and Prowl respectively, on the level of Starscream into Jetfire.

Starscream doesn't seem to be particularly common either, and I don't think Grimlock got released in the States at all. Which is a shame, since I kinda wanted that Grimlock.

I think online retailers like BBTS had it when they were first released. It was a kinda blink and you miss it deal.

I believe you're right. But I blinked, so that didn't do me much good.

BBTS didnt have them. Robot Kingdom did, they were the only major online retailer to have the first wave of figures.

BBTS had them, that's where I got mine. When I wrote I think I was speaking directly to the availability of Grimlock

I hope Shockwave and Sideswipe make it to US retail.

It's interesting that we're also getting a Shockwave in Cyberverse. This renewed interest in him makes me very hopefully that we get a new, non-Legends one in Generations soon.

We have known for a long time now that there would be a new Shockwave and Sideswipe coming to the Cyber Battalion line, a value oriented subline of the Generations line. However, we had never seen an image of them. Until now.

The Snakas Blog has posted images coming from Taiwan of these two brand new toys found in stores. While these are made for brand recognition/growth in BRICS countries, some toys have made it to the US as well, like last year's Prowl and Jetfire which were found at Wallgreens. It is unsure if these two will as well. Speaking of Prowl, it seems [strike]Windcharger[/strike] Sideswipe shares the same engineering. Shockwave however is completely new and turns into a cybertronian spaceship very similar to RID's Cyclonus.

Previous toys in the subline have also been found at Universal Studios but at "exclusive-style" prices, so these might as well. For those unaware, these are voyager sized toys which sell at the deluxe class price point when found at retail. For a review on the previous Prowl release in this line, you can click here.

That Sideswipe would make for a half decent Overdrive.

I was actually thinking "why did they give Sideswipe, Windcharger's altmode?" But Now that you mention Overdrive, it does strike that chord rather well.

Shockwave looks better than he has any right to. Sideswipe has a nice car mode but that's about it.

That shockwave looks pretty good actually, a lot better than that sideswipe.
