Thanks to the official Transformers Facebook page, we now have official renders for most of the Transfomers Cyberverse toys revealed at SDCC 2018, which you can see here.

While it is pretty great to see characters like Slipstream and Acid Storm, please remember that this whole line targets kids far more than collectors. So, for instance, Acid Storm does not have knees and Slipstream does not fully transform, both due to an action feature. For the scouts below, the half transformed figure truly is the alt mode.

Ultra Shockwave, on the other hand, will probably get collectors happy since not only is he voyager sized and more articulated than the previous Cyber Battalion toy, but he also has the same design as the current rendition of IDW Shockwave.

I'll hold off for Warrior Shockwave and go for the voyager then. Just need a video review to make sure.

I must be one of the few people who have little interest in this line. I just can't get into any of those figures.

The only ones that really interest me is Warrior Windblade (because what's one more in my WB army?) and Shockwave since he's within my tolerance for a $30 figure.

Ditto. Still, I'll wait for reviews. Just in case of some nasty surprises. I mean, who would have suspected at the time that Warrior Starscream had no knees?

That's a pretty decent looking shockey. Too bad his gun arm doesn't look to have an elbow.

We can see that same arm inn spider tank mode, where we see it's the same as the other arm.

That's not the same part, the gun arm snaps off at the shoulder to attach to the top of the tank. I think the spider leg that replaces it is hidden inside his torso.

Image

Note how the spider leg has a gray joint, but gun arm is connected to a purple shoulder joint. You can see the shoulder socket on the very back of the gun in tank mode. I think the spider leg does have a small gun hand on it to double as a spare bot arm, but the gun arm doesn't have an elbow. The Warrior class figure has a normal gun hand so the larger one probably does as well.

Thanks bro, wish there was something a little different to justify the double dip.

So for the cartoon, they give all the Seekers similar but distinct character models, but the toys are all straight-up recolors of the one that looks the least like the others. Sigh, not surprised, just disappointed.

Thats super weird and makes the toy even more complex than I gave it credit, considering the line its in. Knowing how the warior transforms, and looking at those front spider legs, I cant see how you couldnt get a normal arm configuration.

You could simply ignore the initial warrior release and wait for this one to get it.

am glad for once we know stuff like this in advance, unlike in RID where you would buy a figure and then learn a month later that a better vesion is coming out.

The general concensus behind the Cybrverse line is that while this gimmick heavy line is far more for kids, there could be one figure that transcends it all: Shockwave (both the Warrior and the Ultra figure).

These are appearing across the world right now so I took the time to take some pictures of Cyberverse Shockwave paired with various figures to give you both a sense of the aesthetic, thematic look and scale.

As is usually the case with Shockwave, his purple is very hard to correctly photograph. Even in the natual light setting I use, it completely changed hue on the images depending on the time of day. The alt mode images make him look closer to fushia, but the ones in bot mode are far closer to the actual colour. I find it important for the correct colour to come across because his deco is probably the best part.

The colour, is a nice full grape colour. Not too dark ala G1 toy but still very full, similar to my idea of the colour when watching the G1 show. Also, this may be the mainline Transformer with the most panel lining so far. There are some neatly ainted pink highlights across the arms and cannon turret, as if to give a sense of the energy coursing through him. He also has silver paint on his legs to convey the gun barrel element from the G1 design.

Image

Image

Image

Image

The sculpt is nice too, a simpler version of the evergreen designs that are currently found everywhere. They were even i the latest IDW rendition of Shockwave so you could technically use this toy for that purpose.

Image

Image

But would the scale work? Well, let's find out.

Image

Maybe not the generations (though we are getting a voyager size version fo the figure later), but here he is next to two rendition of his frenemy Soudwave:

Image

Image

I personally think he works better with the RID Soundwave. In fact, he works great with other RID toys as if he was meant to be part of that line.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

His action feature is not great but it does not get in the way in robot mode. And the blast effects are fine. Plus he has 5 mm holes on both his arms so that you can equip him with other weapons (other weapons not included).

Image

Image

Image

What bugs me the most about the robot mode is that his head does not move. That really hinders toy since while his body can be posed well, you are limited in the poses where the head looks straight out. Or else the pose wont make sense.

As for vehicle mode, you can take it or leave it. It is not the best, but frankly compared to previous shockwaves, it is not bad. I actually preffer it to the Prime alt mode which didn't even hide his hands properly. And to be fair, a spider tank can work as an alt mode and there has been a long history of spider tanks in sci fi related pop culture.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

I see him more like one of those European action masters that had a nice action figure like bot mode and yet still had some sort of an alt mode. And there are specific transformation steps and parts for this tank mode. It has front feet and the robot feet must convert for spider tank feet. That foot transformation is a simple flip but i find it quite elegant in changing the look.

Image

Image

In the end, I wont be collecting this line but I will be adding this particular figure to my RID/TAV collection, where I think he feels right at home.

I dunno. That 'brow' bit is still bugging me on this toy. So used to seeing Shockwave's distinctinve eye without it that it just seems like something obscuring my view of it, and it's annoying. The spider-tank mode just looks silly (like he's just running about on all fours which seems beneath Shockwave) and all that bright pink kinda helps kill any menace the character should have (this sure ain't the guy from that famously grim classic comic cover). I much prefer that Cyber Batallion Shockwave if I want to get an affordable non-MP figure of him (if i ever find him in stores here)

Nice pics though.

Thanks for the review will, question for me is to get this version or the Ultra class...especially since he really does look like he'll fit into a rid/tav collection...
