Greetings Seibertronians! In the midst of all the SDCC action, fellow Seibertron user and YouTube Reviewer, Chuckdawg1999, has done a video review of the forthcoming Transformers Cyberverse Ultra Class Alpha Trion.

Here's what he has to say about this figure:
Chuckdawg1999 wrote:I'm not going to go over all the complaints about the Cyberverse line, you're here so you're at least interested in this figure. After decades of being almost forgotten it's nice to see Alpha Trion getting some love if my counting is correct this is the third figure, the character has gotten. Drawing heavily on its G1 design the figure cuts a rather regal and knowing pose, Trion has seen and done things. Transformation is simple and as always the action feature works just ok. I can really only recommend it if you're a fan of Optimus Primes' wise mentor


We have embedded the video below for your convenience:


What do you think of this version of Alpha Trion? Will you be getting him to add to your collection, or are you happy with one of his other versions?

Going by Hasbro mass retail only, then yes, this is the third official Alpha Trion figure.

It would seem that Alpha Trion is now forever doomed to continue aping the look Vector Prime's vehicle mode, which itself was already very similar to the Sith Infiltrator from Star Wars Episode 1.

Despite the Cyberverse line being so limited in articulation, I would actually argue that this particular Alpha Trion figure may look quite good when placed in a G1 collection among other similarly-articulated molds from the 1980s, specifically some of the non-Diaclone/non-Micro Change molds from 1986-onward. Like, this figure might look good standing next to some of the movie figures from 1986 like Hot Rod, Kup, Blurr, Springer, Wreck-Gar, Scourge, Cyclonus, etc.

I'll say that Alpha Trion could work with limited articulation since traditionally he's a non combatant and thus would need less dynamic posing.

Or make it white and we get Vector Prime.

Don't pretend like there aren't any Primes in the show.

Warrior class Slipstream and Spark Armor Cheetor are Target exclusives.

Thanks to the official Transformers Facebook page, we now know of a new upcoming Cyberverse Warrior Class Slipstream, who will be exclusive at Target along with Cheetor. The Cyberverse Spark Armor Elite Class Cheetor was shown off at San Diego Comic-Con this year, but we have yet to see anything on a Warrior Class Slipstream. This Slipstream is just a redeco of Warrior Class Starscream, even with painted lips, and as such, is very inaccurate due to her model used in the show. This also means she has the same Action Attack, with her waist spinning and the wings flipping out due to centrifugal force.

The Facebook post also has attached a stock render for the already released, "Seekers 3-Pack," containing the Rainmakers, Ion Storm, Nova Storm, and Acid Storm. We already knew these were Target exclusives, and already had stock photography done.

So, would you buy any of these figures at your Target? Thoughts on the newly revealed Slipstream? Tell us below in Pub forums!

I will probably never have to worry about buying these from my local Target because my local Target SUCKS and I'll probably never see any of them there.

I'm definitely going to pick up Slipstream. Sure the mold has many flaws, but I'd rather pay $10 as opposed to $50 or more for the Legends one.

Toysrus probably.all these exclusives seem randomly distributed because the US lost its main toy store. But canada didnt.

We still got mostly everything here, except that Ultra Class Shockwave (I need to find that toy again)

At least I can expect seeing these figures, and hopefully they won't shelfwarm like a certain Target exclusive mask.

I hereby dub Slipstream's toy......DRAGSCREAM! Seriously... she needs some remolding. They could use it for other female seekers from Cyberverse.

I agree. Slipstream has been a joy for me to watch, I'd like her to get a decent toy that looks like her in the Warrior scale
