Fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999 has some new reviews for us. Below you will see a video review of the new Cyberverse Wrarrior Starscream and Hammerbyte.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Hasbro must have heard the cries from the masses since these new mold Warrior Class figures feature articulation that's comparable with Deluxe Class figures. Both Starscream and Hammerbyte feature an action gimmick that's the signature of the Warrior Class line but they really don't get in the way of the basic movements of the figures. Unfortunately, the gimmicks are still a little fiddly, not as bad as before, but enough to make you pause for a moment of reflection. Ultimately these are good, not great figures.

His body just felt too...angular? It just didn't convince me that he was a "transformer" so to speak, not quite sure how to explain it.

Love the character himself in the show and like his head design.

The only Seekers I really liked in the show, design wise, were Slipstream and Thundercracker. I wasn't really a fan of how the rest turned out.

And this seems to be the only seeker toy that really came out good, expect maybe Slipstream, but i never saw her in person to judge properly

I suppose the colors were hit or miss, by design I meant the body shape that the rest of the Seekers used and not necessarily the colors.

I was just glad to have gotten so many Seekers in the show since it's been a long time with their last major appearance being in Animated (I know Dreadwing in Prime is said to be a Seeker and presumably Skyquake was as well but they were new characters which was fine but you know)

Glad to have gotten some first screen appearances from characters like Acid Storm and Nova Storm, Cyberverse was great with the amount of cast they had.

Personally, I loved the Black, Green and Blue seeker that we had previously dubbed Changeling/Changewing

So I have to say this: I think I have found the best one-step Transformer ever made. Repugnus is so good! He is adorable in beast mode, the transformation is actually pretty fun for a single step, and robot mode is actually somewhat posable! The paint work is top notch too!

Until I get Whirl (I've seen he is really good too), he is the definitive 1-step for me, he's just that good. You should pick one up, he is ridiculously fun!

Repugnus also has so much redeco potential. The show introduces so many other Monsterbots and Energon Masters, all of whom share his body-type.

I would gladly take more and army build, he is a really good mold.

I'm actually very happy with my current Cyberverse collection, and with what it will eventually look like. I kinda regret passing on the Scout Shadowstriker and Ultra Slipstream, I did like both of them in the show, but never really could commit to them, and still might try to get them eventually. Season 3 was just so good, and it feels good to have or be getting some of the characters from that parts of the show.

I get the feeling that Hasbro made the toys first and that Boulder Media simply worked them into the third season by crafting stories around them a la the old days of the pre-2007 era. ;)

The Decepticon half of the Cyberverse Resistance

Makes me sad that we are not getting a Cyberverse Perceptor. and it makes me eager to see Iaconus and Skullcruncher. And to get Maccadam, Rack n' Ruin, Whirl, Hammerbyte, Wild Wheel, Meteorfire, and the deluxes.

Finally got around to getting the first four Maccas bots off lay-buy this arvy.

Now I've seen plenty of people having a good ol whinge fest about them, but I don't see why. I found them to be bloody good figures. Megatron is a little on the loose side, and Optimus' plastic is transparent at some points, but other than that, they're solid figures.

I like that there seems to be more pieces to lock in together making the alt modes solid. They also seem to have a good range of poseability.

Good figures, bring on the rest so I can finish off ol Macca.

Glad you found and got them. Bee is quite enjoyable, and I still find him the best of the 4.

Once you unhook Wave's hose, he drastically improves too

We have some big news for you fans of the Marvel G1 Wreckers and of the Cyberverse show in general: the Ultra Class Rack n' Ruin toy is now available on Amazon.com right now!

Rack n' Ruin was a comic original character from the Marvel G1 comics, where they served as members of the Wreckers, and much like their buddy Impactor, they made quite an impact with readers of the day. they briefly showed up in the IDW comics, but until Cyberverse, that was about the limit of their fictional appearances, with no toys either.

But then Cyberverse happened, where Rack n' Ruin became show characters and proved to be quite fun in the show. And with their show appearance, they have finally been granted a toy in the form of this Ultra Class figure, which is quite posable for the size class, much like Clobber, and is available for $19.99. You can pick it up at the above link, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

If you are in the Japanese market, or just in the market for obscure redecos of 9-year old figures, have we got news for you! According to a post on Snakas Blog, the May issue of Japan's TV magazine will include a clear plastic redeco of Legion Class Bumblebee from Dark of the Moon, which came out in 2011. However, this figure is branded as "Thunder Spark Bumblebee" and is being associated with the Cyberverse line. Check out the pictures below.

What do you think of this figure? Let us know in the comments below, and thanks to Seibertronian ScottyP for the heads up on this head-scratching figure.

Wait a moment... Dark of the Moon came out in 2011 :-? Isn't this the Revenge of the Fallen Legion class Bumblebee?

Nah, Bounti just got the bloody year wrong. ROTF Legends-class Bee had wheels at the ends of his arms.

Thanks for the heads up, guys. I actually corrected it shortly after I posted it, but it may still show up in different places.

No problem, reads fine now. You're doing a fantastic job.

Got these 2 in the mail yesterday, got to play with them some last night.

Hammerbyte is a really cool warrior. The transformation is actually quite intuitive, and the shark mode is really cool. Except for no head movement, he is really good!

Rack n' Ruin is also a joy. The comments for him are similar to Hammerbyte, with the lack of any head movement being any sort of detriment. But they are really cool and the alt mode is nice too.

They are both fun!

Why am I not surprised? :roll:

In the mean time, I'm still trying to comprehend the line up of the Hasbro side. Too many Size Classes with too many repeat characters 8-}
