We got quite a bit of big Transformers Cyberverse news all at once. Firstly, for those who liked the deluxes Hasbro has been releasing, we seem to have more coming. There are listings on Walmart for a deluxe Starscream, Prowl and Soundwave. Here are the links to those listings, which fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade sent our way:

Deluxe Starscream
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Transformers-hasbro-Tra-Cyberverse-Deluxe-Starscream/102569610

Deluxe Prowl
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Transformers-hasbro-Tra-Cyberverse-Deluxe-Prowl/985823083

Deluxe Soundwave
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Transformers-hasbro-Tra-Cyberverse-Deluxe-Soundwave/859888439

But that is not all. We also have new product images. We have some for the upcoming One Step Cybertronian Megatron and Ratchet as well as Ultimate Iaconus. It seems Iaconus shares some engineering with Ultimate Shockwave since the alt mode is him on all fours as well. However, while Shockwave was a tank, here Iaconus is ... something else? It's not clear. You'll let us know what you think that alt mode is.

*looks at Iaconus alt mode, imagine manager meeting with designer*
Manager: So what does this one turn into?
*points at Iaconus*
Designer: Oh he's great! He turns into a city!
Manager: hmmm
Designer: problem?
Manager: a few, do you know how much we're going to sell him for?
Designer: Err
Manager: We also sell Titan Class toys for about $180, they turn into cities. We would people buy them if they can get this guy for 80% less?
Designer: I don't think that's how the fans are going to look at this...
Manager: No we can't have a city at this price. We'll do this instead.
*manhandles prototype*
Designer: but...
Manager: There we go.
*Puts toy down*
Designer: but...
Manager: Stick a few rocket boosters on there and he can be a spaceship or a tank. Ohh there's his gimmick, he becomes whatever the child wants! I'll get marketing on it right now!
*manager leaves*
Designer: but...

*looks at photo*

Huh? :???:

*enlarges photo for a closer look*

Oh. OOOH! It's a starship.

That's a very bad publicity photo. We're seeing the ship from behind with a view of the thrusters in the back.

One of the oddest alt modes yet...'assume the position!'

Maybe they just gave up on his design when season 3 started to go down hill.

Dunno. That's the first pic we've seen of it, AFAIK. They haven't shown us what the front end looks like.

Dear Hasbro: You do realize that publicity photos are supposed to make your products look good, yes?

Nah, the catalog photos from the '80s look good and they had it at least as recently as 2009. They extra had it in 2005 - remember how dressed-up the Cybertron publicity pics were?

Iaconus' alt mode kinda reminds me of a World Devastator from the Star Wars EU.

I give you the 1980's because those Distribution au Consommateurs catalogue were AWESOME! Then again, those photos may have not been made by Hasbro but by the store company.

As for the Cybertron years, I can't tell because I started collecting only in 2010.
Look like I started collecting just in time when Hasbro photographers stopped giving a fak.

Hasbro. Guys. It's okay to integrate car parts into Arcee's robot mold. She can have car shins or car part arms. Even Hot Rod has car parts on his shins most of the time.

It's especially annoying when, unlike T30 Arcee, this Arcee has big square legs and big square forearms ideal for integration. Hasbro simply took the easy way out and made one of the purest shellformers we've seen since Age of Extinction.
Emerje

if they used TFA Lockdown-style legs, I think those curves would become hips/thighs and calves very easily

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.

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:
