Thanks to a plethora of you fans for having contacted us with the news that Hasbro has updated their website to now have character sheets for the Cyberverse TV show cast. We get to see the characters that will be on the show and many are new reveals, like Acid Storm, Thundercracker and Prowl. While the designs are based on Emiliano Santalucia's Evergreen designs, these are stylized more and have several differences. Wheeljack for instance has some facial hair, looking quite reminescent of what we could see hidden underneath his Masterpiece toy's faceplate.

Clicking on each character art on the site reveals a bio. Below is the full roster revealed along with the images of the characters.

Which character are you excited to see most?

Autobots: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Windblade, Wheeljack, Ratchet, Grimlock, Hot Rod, Prowl, Blurr.

Decepticons: Megatron, Starscream, Thundercracker, Shadow Striker, Shockwave, Slipstream, Soundwave, Acid Storm.

I love all of these designs!!! Very happy that Acid Storm gets a role. Now if only they had beter toys, these designs deserve a proper rendition in plastic.

Shadow Striker? Could that possibly mean Roulette may end up being in the show, too? Or, at the very least, a cheap repaint made by Hasbro to make more money? Either way would be nice.

Starscream and Hot Rod are lookin' a little feminine, there. :P

Meanwhile, Blurr's looking less inspired by his 1980s G1 design and more his IDW G1 design (his head, especially).


As for the bios...

Bumblebee is sure taking his amnesia well. He seems all too chipper and optimistic about getting his memories back, and has some inkling about some kind of "epic powers" he might possess and unlock.

Optimus Prime is Optimus Prime. That is all.

Windblade seems to draw most from her RID 2015 personality, being described as "super cool", able to take on the Seekers by herself, and full of determination.

Whoa, Grimlock's a whole new take, entirely! While being all typically strong and smashy in T-Rex mode, robot mode for him is a whole different case. He's described as "one of the smartest, smoothest talking bots around", and Bee considers him a very reliable pal who "always looks out for his friends". I could kinda dig a "cool guy" Grimlock.

Wheeljack's pretty much just his traditional inventor self.

Ratchet's kind of a popular dude in this version. He's so good at being a doctor that "every bot in the galaxy wants him as their medical officer." No signs of his traditional grumpiness either.

Hot Rod's now all about danger and showing off. Always up for a race, but a bit of a sore loser if he doesn't win. But he's also one of Bee's favorite people.

Prowl's a stick-in-the-mud who's all into rules and regulations and needs Bee to teach him how to have fun. Whatever.

Blurr is fast and talks fast. And Bee had to take a deep breath when imitating his way of speaking. Because robots breathe, I guess. :roll:


Megatron is a no good evil bad guy who used to be friends with Optimus.

Thundercracker is Animated Thundercracker. Vainglorious and all muscle.

This version of Starscream is a little Swindle-ish this time. He'd sell each of his teammates out if given the opportunity, but for power instead of profit.

Shadow Striker is mean and spitefully insulting to everyone and wants to destroy for Earth for some reason.

Shockwave continues the tradition established by Dreamwave of his being a scientist, but now with the creep factor upped a bit.

Slipstream's got some good qualities to her, being a capable strategist and showing leadership potential. Nothing's said if she has any actual leadership ambitions, though. Her only mentioned intent is, like Shadow Striker, to destroy planet Earth.

Soundwave's a master spy who listens in on the Autobots by "messing with [their] electrical impulses, or something along this evil lines."

Acid Storm's bio claims that Starscream is the Seeker leader in contrast to the previous news we were told about Slipstream being their leader. As for Acid Storm himself, he can control the weather to produce "toxic rain" and is kind of a stalker to Bee and his friends, always chasing them around.

I thought it seemed more G1-Bio-Inspired. With him being a basic Seeker warrior and arrogant because he can fly.

Who's that bot left of Soundwave? looks like a fembot. Same with the one between TT and Acidstorm. The one with a monocle......Blitzwing? Looks like a fembot too.
Starscream and Hotrod also look gurly.

The rest look awesome! (Shockwave especially)

Looks like some kinda weird mutton chops to me!

He was grumpy in prime, less grumpy in RiD 15 so maybe this is the evolution of his character? I can't remember if this was going to be a sequel or not (It doesn't look like it) but I for one am kinda glad to see Ratchet as a friendly character. It's good to see a fav character more happy - especially one that has had to deal with some rough stuff. Of course we won't know until the show airs for sure. He could be his grumpy ol' self and that would be fine with me. Just please please please be voiced by Jeffery Combs!

Hm not keen on these. Should have left mouthplates on Wheeljack (that 'facial hair' looks as bad as that Unicrone Rodimus from the PotP) and Grimlock. And everyone's lost a finger off each hand for simplicity i guess. And Blurr's got that really crappy overly spikey IDW head style (and obnoxious facial expression). Prowl looks the most 'normal'. I kinda wanna push those windows down on Ratchet's shoulders cos they look odd sticking up like that just likely to get broken. :P

Anyways yeah this show probably ain't for me (but then none of the tv shows ever have been, not even the original). Enjoy. :)

Man, these brand-new designs for these characters for Cyberverse are fabulous! Though, i'm extremely anxious enough to see what the alt-mode for all of these characters would look like. Should any of you guys find a images of the alt-modes of all of these character, who are just recently being posted on the Hasbro website, pleas feel free to post them up for all of us to see. Thanks. :BOT: :CON:

Take a look again. That's a beard Wheeljack is sporting.

Wheeljack actually sort of reminds me of me: beard, science, engineer, and a smile :P

I am digging the designs and bios. I'm really glad Thundercracker made the cut, but poor Skywarp!

I wish we did get some better toys of these designs, they are quite cool. I'm drawn to Jackie with all the tech detailing and seeming body mods, Hot Rod is pretty sweet, Shockwave and Soundwave both look angry and awesome, and Grimlock is my Grimlock!

It looks to me that Thundercracker and Acid Storm could be retooled from the RID 2015 seeker mold

Hot Rod looks pretty good. It's surprising that Acid Storm will finally be getting a major role in a Transformers series, though.

Based on the design of Cyberverse Shadow Striker's robot mode, it is officially confirmed by Hasbro at the Toy Fair that her alt-mode will be like that of a car. But what kind of car to be exact? :CON:

Yeah.

Yeah I suppose you are right. Seems most people dislike his new look but I think it's pretty funny. I mean he does have the personality to try some kind of weird look with his facial plating. Either way we could give him a flannel shirt and call him "Lumberjack".

Overall I think I like some of these new designs more than I did originally. Yeah I think Bumblebee ans Windblade look odd but the rest look pretty cool. Especially the Decepticons. I think the thousand yard stare doesn't look so bad on characters that are supposed to be villains.

Ratchet, Grimlock and Prowl all look really good to me. Blurr, Rodimus and Wheeljack look sort of funny but I think it suits them anyways. My main concern is the story and the characterization. I did not like the art style for TFA when I first saw it but it grew on me when I watched the show. So if they make up for some of the characters looking odd with great story I am all for it. I did not like the same old stuff happening over and over in RiD.

What I want is for them to write something like TFP but improve on that formula. The character development and seriousness was great. If we could have something that took those elements and left out the plot holes, rushed parts (I know that was caused by budget issues and the hub shutting down but a little planning may have prevented this) and maybe lightened up just slightly. While I was into the tone of the show I know that it went from serious to dark at times. Which I personally like sometimes but I know that scares some kids and parents away so maybe it's better left to the comics to be dark.
