This piece of news from the New York Toy Fair aftermath is entirely thanks to Transformers Twitter, as users The Last Gherkin, Jalaguy and original source of the image TFU.info combined their efforts to provide the best resolution of the tidbit - but what we have thanks to them is a first look at the female Decepticon character due to appear in the animated Cyberverse series from Hasbro and Boulder Media: Shadow Striker!

You can see artwork of her on the side of the Cyberverse Megatron box, which we do have in our own galleries, but not as visible as the further images mirrored below.

I kind of wish she had more in common colorwise with G1 Shadow Striker, but either way, more fembots are a good thing.

Is she Animated Blitzwing's sister?

I'm always glad to see more female chanracters, but It would be nice to get more female Decepticons in the main line though.

Cyberverse is the main TV show line, at least.

I guess when I say main line, I'm thinking of the Generations related line. It would be nice to see them put out Slipstream (aside from the Takara release a couple years ago)

There was a time when the media lines were the main lines and the CHUG lines were done on the side.

Those were the days...

It's kinda funny how what had been a small line of G1 homage figures to fill the gap between the end of Cybertron and the start of the first movie blew up into such a massive toyline in its own right. (And all those characters in the first wave of Classics have since been remade, even.) Even with the massive positive reaction to that line, I don't think anyone could have anticipated we'd be here eleven years later considering it the "main" line due to its consistent presence through the last decade while other lines have come and gone.

However Hasbro proper does not see the generations line as being the main line. Brian Goldner reiterated the fact that the core lines are the ones that are targeted towards their core audience which is kids from 5-8 years old.

Eh.. what the CEO says is not necessarily what the various brands think. I mean, for varying degrees of main, both statements are true. From a purely commercial revenue standpoint, sure.

But I'd be wary of dismissing the 'rest' of the active audience, despite us being in the minority (if so).

That is definately a door on her arm though.

I for one am excited that here we are what, 15 years later and a botcon repaint of an RID figure is a main-ish villian. RID01 was my umping on point and the Universe Roulette and Shadow Strikers were pretty figures.

Yes, both statements can be true. And we are a minority, but an important one where there is growth potential (unlike the core market).

Here is the quote relating specifically to TFs (which Braind Goldner sees as his golden goose right now):

We have a preschool RESCUE BOTS show, we have our Cyberverse focused on our core kid six-to-nine year-old. We continue to run more adult oriented content on Machinima for that fan. Fan business is growing in a very significant manner. And then of course we have our movies. It was a movie year but our products were about the movie but also about all these other dimensions of TRANSFORMERS.


The way I see it, Cyberverse seems to be where the anticipated major portion of revenue for the TF brand will come from in 2018 with any collector line being where there will be the greatest increase in revenue.

That aside, I do still cringe at the CEO of such an important firm calling something "adult oriented content".

I have a hunch that another factor making Cyberverse more profitable is because its figures look a lot more cheaply made. Engineering and articulation up the cost of producing a figure, and if these are simpler figures, they should make Hasbro more money than their more elaborate CHUG counterparts.

Also directly from the source - that is, Hasbro - we have some official imagery for the barrage of class sizes that will feature in the newcoming toyline for Transformers: Cyberverse, including the Action Attackers gimmick for the figures in the line. But, proceeding with order, we have:

  • Scout class Megatron, Bumblebee, Starscream and Grimlock
  • Ultimate Class Optimus Prime and Megatron
  • Ultra Class Starscream, Grimlock, and Bumblebee
  • Warrior Class Starscream, Shockwave, Optimus Prime, and Bumblebee

Some of these images we had seen in previous news reporting, such as here, but some of these are most definitely a new look. You can compare the images below and in their full gallery to our coverage of the figures on display at New York Toy Fair 2018 here!

Deluxe and voyager Starscream look just sad. However, I will hold my jugement for Scout Starscream for after the vehicle mode is truly revealed. Scout Screamers in bot mode is adorable and the GERWALK ACTION is hilarious.

He has no vehicle mode, he is just a gimmick toy. It explains why a legends sized toy is only 8$ instead of 10$
