should say I checked and it was the Deluxe size SHockwave I passed on in the shop. I forgot that design came in two figure sizes. But I certainly wouldn't want the bigger more expensive one either.

What does Slipstream have a propeller on her jet mode?

She does, but I don't care. I'm just happy that Slipstream finally gets her own mold rather than a repaint.

Glad to get a Slipstream that, you know, transforms all the way. Good show there.

You know, The fact that we have now set our standards so low is kinda sad :(

Looks like Bee, Prime, and Megs are getting second warrior figures.

While the newly announced Leader Shockwave arguably gives even the Masterpiece a good fight, this works almost well enough for a Voyager Shocky, the only thing I'd change aside from adding an elbow, would be darker colors, G1 toy colors would do wonders for this toy, as they'd balance out the kiddy aesthetic with the edgier deco.

here for anyone interested in the knees for shockwave cyber batallion

back on this thread topic
i don't know how to feel, see prowl and i see an articulated figure, and we know shockwave warrior(deluxe) and ultra(voyager) are properly articulated, also windblade...and thats it, they managed to get gimmicks and still have proper articulation
optimus warrior i think only lacks left arm because of the gimmick but shockwave ultra has the same problem so is not that bad
oh almost forgot the big optimus that i don't remember the class name...and thats it, everything else is so compromised by the gimmicks they suffer in so many ways they are not even comparable with the 1steps or the 3(or more) step figures from age of extinction or TLK, i as a kid was able to figure out magnaboss and tripredacus and i was 8 years old, how is that now a days kids cant even properly a 3 step? and they need figures this simple? as i said there are what? 6 proper figures? and this lien has more than 30 by this point

update: just noticed soudnwave and prowl have indeed proper articulation so yeah that goes from 6 to 8 figures that are decent, but still everything else is way too limited, optimus seems to have better articulation in the arms but nothing indicates knee articulation -_-

Ultra Purple Shockwave work really well as a Generation figure.

BTW, "Deluxe" Starscream is garbage but I would have forgiven it only if the wing tip gimmick were not spring loaded. I would have like to display that Screamers with his purple :CON: deployed.

Following our coverage of the New York Comic-Con 2018 Cyberverse figures here, we now have official stock photos from Hasbro them self, as well as from their Facebook and Instagram. These photos slightly differ due to having the background.

There are many photos here, ranging from robot modes, to vehicle, to Action Attacks, to mid-transformation. This also helps us identify what toy is what from the earlier post, and gets us a better look at each one and their gimmick. We have:

Scout:
Shadow Striker
Ratchet

1-Step:
Optimus Prime
Bumblebee
Megatron
Wheeljack
Hot Rod
Prowl

Warrior:
Hot Rod
Prowl
Soundwave (with Laserbeak)

Ultra:
Optimus Prime
Slipstream

Ultimate:
Bumblebee

Tell us your thoughts, well, you know where! The Pub forums down below!

That Warrior Prowl looks like it heavily borrows from the Cyber Battalion figure

Praise Unicron! We're getting a square headed, lipstick Slipstream!
And she's going to be Ultra (the old Mega for OG tfans), which means I'm going to have to get that missile pod Starscream to go with her and sell my Warrior class Starscream. Or keep it.

I'm liking the new designs, scout's a bit iffy but okay. Atleast the Decepticon car lady has shoulder articulation which is good.
And I really dig Hot Rod, a beefy bulky guy this time.

Prowl looks good, very what UP said Cyberbattalion like. I do hope if he's stable in the torso and has an easy transformation that they repaint him to death.
Same goes for that missile pod Starscream (eventhough he's not that great by a long shot) that they also make him an Acid Storm and Thundercracker, put Slipstream's head on it (they should have square heads) and I'm totally happy with it.

The 2 Ultimates, Optimus and Megatron are really fun. Just 3D printed a resized Armada Optimus gun for Optimus since he didn't came with a weapon.

Scout Shadow Striker look like she at least transform into something.
That Soundwave look decent too.

Because every jet needs a giant propeller for a booster. :D

I don’t know why but I really like Scout class Ratchet. I might pick him up.

It's amazing how Bumblebee seems to consistently get the worst toys in every size except One-Step (and even then it's the second-worst) even though he's the main character.

Having the scout class only transform halway is still the worst idea Hasbro's had in a long time. And since it's the cheapest price point (and thus most likely to be bought as an impulse buy or by parents for their kids), I can't help but think it'll hurt sales of the toyline as a whole. Shadow Striker at least manages to look kinda like those toys they used to put in happy meals with the character's head and shoulders sticking out of a tiny car, like she's driving herself, but that may just be because we're not seeing her from the front.

Interesting how these one-steps have autotransform AND action gimmicks. And how it doesn't make them look any worse than previous one-steps (faint praise, I admit). Prowl and Wheeljack look adequate, and Megatron actually looks pretty nice. Hot Rod doesn't look quite as good but having a big buzzsaw still puts him ahead of Prime and Bee in my eyes.

The standard sizes seem to be getting their articulation back, Most of these seem to have knees, elbows, and turning heads. Nice that Slipstream's getting a new mold, gives me hope that future seekers could at least have some retooling to better reflect their individual character designs.

I might be in the minority here, but I like that they've gone back to individualized action gimmicks like they used to have before the DotM toyline, rather than building each size around a single gimmick for everyone. It offers more variety, and in theory it allows better integraion with individual figures (though in practice it seems they might be a little out of practice with doing that). Obviously, some are better than others; Prowl's shoulder guns seem fairly natural an intuitive, but Prime slapping on a giant Autobot symbol in vehicle mode looks kinda stupid, and I'm not entirely sure what Slipstream's is even supposed to be other than a big spinner thing that amuses me for no good reason. Soundwave's is probably the best, it's certainly a clever way of working Laserbeak into a toyline that doesn't have a place for accessories, and the only thing that would make it better is if he launched as he opened up like BW Scorponok's bee or Polar Claw's bat (not that those necessarily were particularly reliable or went very far, but the spirit was there), or at least could be detached, but that seems highly unlikely.
