You know, with the news of another wave of Deluxes, I wonder who the next build-a-figure could be. I would imagine it would be someone in the show who doesn't have a toy yet, who couldn't be made from simply redecoing/retooling an existing mold, and who isn't too big to scale with the rest of the normal-sized bots (as in, not Croaton).

Alphastrike would be a cool option, and would give us another fembot. Though, while not gigantic, she still might be too big.

Astrotrain would probably be too big, too.

Or, hey, maybe it's the Quintesson Scientist! He'd be doable as a BAF.

I'm surprised there hasn't been any news of an Astrotrain figure yet. Hopefully they don't decide to skip him because the Earthrise figure is still on shelves because I really like his design in the show.

Are we certain there is a BAF component this time around?

It would make sense to continue the trend.

If they drop the BAF pieces, I doubt most would like getting less product for the same price.

Only the toy has a reflection. The kid is a vampire.

Holy crap that's TRUE!
Now I notice that the kid is just a bad shoop that act like a cardboard cut-out behind the toy.

Wow. :HEADHURTS:

Thanks to our own D-Maximal Primal, we've been alerted to two previously unseen Cyberverse multipacks. The first, from user @ARCTIC_STORM on Twitter, shows us a recolor of Repugnus' 1-Step changer in a color scheme meant to evoke Cybertron Wreckloose. Fitting, as Cybertron Repugnus was a redeco of that line's Wreckloose. This Repugnus (he's still labeled as such) is branded a Decepticon, though, and includes three smaller Repugni(?) Who appear to be non-transforming monsterbots, likely as a callback to the Cyberverse episode "Journey to the Valley of Repugnus", which features multiple bots with the exact same altmode.

Image

This image appears to show the set at retail, and given that previous "Cybertronian Villains" sets were Target exclusives, its likely it was found at Target, though there's nothing in the picture to confirm this.

Next up is from an eBay auction for a Seeker Multipack first rumored earlier this year. It features four Seekers who are redecoes of the recent Warrior Class Starscream figure who had a Cybertronian altmode. Included are Thrust in a color scheme more reminiscent of his G1 incarnation, inverted, though with a healthy dose of yellow; Skywarp in her show accurate mostly purple colors (Skywarp is female in Cyberverse), and Thundercracker and Starscream in more traditional decos (until you get to the wings). Interestingly, Skywarp and Starscream are both packaged in jet modes, while Thrust and Thundercracker are in robot mode.

Let us know what you think of these new figures, and whether you'll be purchasing them if you see them at retail. As always, stay tuned to Seibertron for the latest in Transformers news!

Oops. My mistake (now fixed). I'm very unfamiliar with the whole Unicron Trilogy, so I had to research the figure and got them mixed up.

Skywarp is female in Cyberverse. :-?

After Splitstream and female Starscream in the French dub of the 1986 TF Movie, I think that the Seekers can gender-swap with absolutely no problem. And without changing body type that much if at all too!
;)

It looks as if the mini monsterbots do transform as you can see a ball joint to flip the heads down. The sharkticon pack and 3 mini sharks that transformed so these probably change into mini robots as well.

The Repugnus set is adorable, and the Seeker one is awesome. Target’s getting a ton of exclusives here lately, more exclusives in the last year than in the last three or four I’d say.

First reaction: Holy snap, we're getting toys of all those Monsterbots/Energon Masters?!!!!

*rewatches episode*

Second reaction: Aw man, none of those decos in that set match with any of the Monsterbots/Energon Masters seen onscreen. Unless their names are given somewhere on the box, they're all just generics. No Repugnus, Stinkus, Coolus, Hippus, Raddus, Operatus, Affluous, Fabulous, or Teknicus.

;)
Nova Storm and (most of the time) Acid Storm are female in Cyberverse too (I say "most of the time" since there were a few shots in Season 1 where Acid Storm was rendered with a male Seeker design instead of the female one that she had more often and ultimately settled on in Season 2).

And so is Cosmos.

As I understood, Acid Storm was genderfluid, so that's why they switched between male and female. At least, that's what the writers said (to cover the animation inconsistencies).

I hope it was tongue-in-cheek sarcasm from the writers because genuinely pandering to the woke fringe never end well.

I'm still curious how Starscream (and Ratchet) would have been written if they were female since day one in G1? Would Ratchet have become a "sexy nurse"? Would Starscream still be a schemer, a coward, and Megatron's punching bag? :-?

I doubt it was sarcasm, just a way to cover animation errors. Nothing more, nothing less.

Ratchet would probably have been a battleax nurse considering the character is named after Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

I would so love to see that. Cold, austere, dry, and mean woman who is too old to deal with this sh!t. A bit like Animated Ratchet, but meaner. Of course, she would be best doctor and always mean well in the end despite her awful attitude.
