We've got some more Transformers: Cyberverse fun coming at you, Seibertronians! Thanks to our old pal, Chuck, we've got a pair of nice video reviews of Transformers: Cyberverse 1-Step Changers Optimus Prime and Prowl! Chuck, a.k.a. chuckdawg1999, gives us an overview of Optimus Prime and Prowl in vehicle and robot modes, shows off their transformations, and demonstrates their new "Action Attack" features! Action attacks are being incorporated into the Cyberverse 1-Step Changer toys beginning with Wave 3, in which you can also find Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Hot Rod, and Megatron. As a bonus, Chuck also gives us a comparison with the previous 1-Step Changer Optimus Prime from Wave 2 and the new Warrior Class version of Prowl. Give these videos a watch below!

I just love how there is no theming or commonality between most of those Spark Armor figures. We have a scout who converts into a sports car with a freakin' battleship, a warrior poet who turns into a shark with a drill tank thing, and an armada commander who transforms into a fighter jet with a construction vehicle. These closest matchup that I see with some common ground is Megatron (a tank) and his assault helicopter. Otherwise, these matchups seem completely random.

Even though I don’t collect these, and I don’t fall into the target demographic, it’s impossible for me to deny how cool and fun these look. Between these and siege, I love a lot of the decisions that Has/Tak is making. If I were a kid, or a teen, I’d be all over these the same way I was with Bionicle, when those came out. I love the idea that the armor upgrades transform into such cool looking vehicles, and various homages to other TF series.

Also that Skybyte is just adorable.

Wow, cyberverse figures that are nice. Jetfires drone may be the slammer to compiement scamper to finish metroplex off.

Liking the armor premise and even if it makes some look like SD Gundams thats only a good thing.

I non-ironically like it for that reason. It IS completely random and crazy, with the usual SCALE BE DAMNED of the Transformers universe. All of these are "why, because we can and don't give a f..." :lol: :APPLAUSE:

I'm looking forward the video reviews of these. To see if the quality hold up and what articulations they actually have.

Oh my. That Sky-byte looks nice.

I just wonder how cross compatible those body armor parts are between size classes. They almost look like they're tailor made for the bots they go with. Some would probably have to be. If so, it would limit some of the fun with them sadly.

If there is some cross-compatibility between the armours I'd expect it to be within the same size class. Even if limited, cross-compatibility is always good.

If you can cobble together a leg mode from Prime's armour, I'm all for a drone Broadside.

While I'll only plan on picking u SkyByte because it's frickin' SkyByte, I like how the Jet Power Optimus is somewhat an homage to his combination with Jetfire in RoTF. Also what is this? An entire wave of cyberverse toys that all look decent? I'm just happy the show is getting better products. SkyByte to me is till the only must have.

These things are really great looking! The only one I find a little questionable is Megatron, his tank mode is garbage, but all of the others look worth getting. Not so sure about Starscream with purple wing stripes.

That would be neat, kinda like the Minicon armors from Prime. Megatron's armor looks like it could form the top of another bot. The larger Optimus looks like he could form a large portion of a bot with those big feet.

As for Bumblebee.

Joking aside, this is better looking than the last time Bumblebee had boat armor.

These figures are GREAT! I hope they'll arrive here in Italy... Starscream, Jetfire and the jet-armor Optimus are my favourite!

I like these. If they weren't the kidified toys I'd buy them. I still might get that prime with the Arc. I would have liked to see Arcee though.

Now those are cyberverse figures that pique my interest. Also, it seems like the armor bits attach via 3.5 pegholes. If that is indeed the case, we might be able to use them to armor up siege figures.

These look like some really fun toys, for the kids. If I were 8, I'd be all over this stuff.
Neat character designs, and this armor up/Weaponize gimmick is always fun.

Sky Byte?!?!? RAD!

I really don't like the show, or the toyline so far. Buuuuuuut, I'm a sucker for a *good* combination/add-on gimmick. Can't wait to see how the final retail versions look.

100% agree w/ this statement. The possibilities for future figures (if this particular part of the line continues) are limitless! Windblade w/ submarine! Grimlock w/ an armored car! Shockwave w/ a spider tank! (Oh, wait...)

Prowl looks like he has a great idea! :lol:

I think I want half of two sets from this line; Jetfire to hang out with legend class figures, and the battleship to cannibalize for custom fodder.

Nice stuff. Sky-Byte especially looks great.

Just a few random thoughts:

Something tells me these are going to be smaller than we expect. That Prime with the ark will probably be comparable to the Ultra Class but double the money. When that happens I'll just sit back and watch the world burn.

Having looked at larger pics I don't think the armor will be swappable, the chest and shoulder/helmet armor looks to be connected by a hinge and the helmets are sculpted to fit the robot heads.

This actually look pretty good. Might have to pick them up.

I was wondering if I’d ever bring myself to buy even a single Cyberverse toy, but holy crap that Sky Byte is a beautiful little effer. That Megatron isn’t too shabby either, looks better than every other version of him in the line so far.

Also if I’m not mistaken, isn’t Megatron’s armor an homage to his Machine Wars toy?

Some think it looks more like Machine Wars Starscream, while others think its being a helicopter is reminiscent of Animated Megatron.

I haven't been too impressed with the Cyberverse line (too many hair-trigger spring-loaded gimmicks interfering with articulation for my taste), but my kids seem to like it well enough. These, however, look like they might entertain us all. I love a good add-on armor.
