Thanks to our fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999 we have a brand new video review of the Transformers Cyberverse Warrior Class Deadlock! Seasoned Transformer fans know Deadlock as the Decepticon alias of the noble Autobot Drift prior to his redemption and heroic name change. Despite this dark past long being part of the character this makes for the first official non-repaint or exclusive Deadlock figure offered by Hasbro. So even though his debut is in the more youth friendly Cyberverse line this is nonetheless a significant figure.
From Chuck:
"Deadlock is the name Drift used when he was a Decepticon, represented here in the Cyberverse line using a design that looks a little like Drift's Generations toy. Unfortunately, the weapon gimmick doesn't work as well as it should, like almost every other Warrior Class figure, and the plastic feels cheap in certain spots. Those issues aside I quite like the figure and think it's actually one of the better Warrior Class figures in the line."

Enjoy the view and share your thoughts with the Seibertron crew in the forums. And as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

I'm talking about the toy line classification he falls into, not his quality.

I just saw the Ultimate in walmart again, still didn't get him. Too much going on this month. but i do hope to get him, it was a lot harder to leave him behind the 2nd time. That headsculpt and the sculpt in general is really nice and really colorful and pleasing

It;s the one toy to finaly give that good design justice. Also, as I hope you find out one day, the transformation design is very good. You'd think we'd seen it all with Grimlock so far but they find a way to keep it fresh.

We have good news for fans. Cyberverse Spark Armor Battle Class Shockwave and Ratchet have been found at US retail. Specifically, Target in Colorado. These are around scout sized and, unlike the majority of that line's toys, are not simplified. Their only gimmick is that you can attach armor onto them, similar to the Siege gimmick, and this armor is compatible with Siege toys.
This particular sighting was found by user Fc203 who posted on our forums.

If ever you find him as well, please let fans know in your state's (or country's) sightings forum. You can also insert the sighting in our sightings section.

If you find a toy you think no one else reported yet, please contact us by clicking here.

So, I'm kinda in love with this Shockwave. :D Then again, I love all of the Cyberverse Shockwaves for different reasons. For this one, it's A.) the removable arm cannon with a fist underneath B.) the fact that this one has a cable connecting said arm cannon to his back and C.) the fact that his spark armor gives me heavy Shockblast vibes (who has one of the best Shockwave heads and color schemes, IMO).

I like that the accessories for the Spark Armor figures (as in the "spark armor" itself) all seem to homage past Titan Master vehicles from Titans Return, other characters, or other vehicles from past lines. Nice to see those concepts appear elsewhere. :)

It sucks that Walmart seems to be passing on the Spark Armor figures in favor of moving those old loose Titan Guardian figures from a box on the shelf to hanging them on the pegs as if visibility was why they weren't selling well. Just put them on clearance already, nobody wants them anymore! :roll:

I agree with this.

My walmart hasn't had Cyberverse for months, and doesn't appear to be stocking now. They only have the deluxes of Siege and SS, and the voyagers of Siege, that is it besides those stupid titan guardians (and there are a lot)

Just in from zoidiect on YouTube is a video review of the new Transformers Cyberverse Power of the Spark Spark Armor Shockwave with Solar Shot. zoidiect shows the transformation, how the armor fits on Shockwave, and how he stacks up next to Cyberverse Gnaw. Many fans have made the comparison of this upgraded Shockwave to some of his prior incarnations, and the use of a satellite for his sidekick certainly harkens back to his Transformers Energon version. Enjoy the view and let us know your thoughts in the forum. Stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news.

Sometimes I think of Shockwave as the Batman of Transformers.
He seems like the kind of person who would have some mnemonically blocked file full of countermeasures to kill every single Cybertronian if ever the need arose.
The kind of guy who shows up to meetings on time only when it conveniences his purposes.
He’s busy with his own stuff but he’s part of a team.
Cold, calculating, looks great in dark colors, horns on his head.

Get this guy a cape and a childhood born vendetta against crime and you’ve got Cybertronian Batman aka Bruce Shockwayne.

Shocky looks pretty dang cool! This must be the year of the shockwave, and also the year of the armored up shockwave!

Still think Ratchet will be the one from this size class I will pick up though, for now

Let's talk Cyberverse. 2 figures specifically.

first up, Sky Byte.

This guy is a fantastic little dude! The robot mode is really enjoyable and despite the lack of a head swivel, he poses as much as I would hope he could. The colors are really nice too, with some decent paint. The transformation is effective and the shark mode is awesome. I'm surprised at how good the shark mode is and how well it all works out, well done!

The drone is also cool. the drill bit fits over his fist, so you get a pretty awesome claw/drill double punch. And the dividing up of the drone works out really nice. I love it!

Overall, he is great. i didn't plan to get him, but I saw him at Target today and decided to give him a try, and he was much better than i thought he would be. I like him more than Cheetor. Gives me confidence in how much I will enjoy Ratchet.

And the other Cyberverse figure of the day: Grimlock. I saw him again today, and third times the charm. Wow is he awesome.

Given he is twice as much as Sky Byte, I am surprised at how much larger he is, and how it isn't the result of weak plastic or hollowness. He is pretty filled out, and he has really good posability too.

The robot mode is the strongest mode, and it kills. He is big and intimidating, has a great head, awesome arms, and that super stomp thing is really cool. The colors are sweet! Transformation is pretty different with the way the legs work and the dino mode is cool, though I wish the front had a bit more color breakup, but that's minor.

He is definitely worth the money. he is a better toy than the PotP Grimlock for sure, and they were both around the same price, and he is bigger.

He is good, get him if you can.

And with that, I have 3 Cyberverse figures. I'd say Cheetor is the weakest of the 3, but all 3 are pretty good, and a definite increase in quality and fun over the original cyberverse figures. Now to wait out Ratchet and the Scraplet!

I loved every minute of reading this. Very glad you got the figures and even more glad that you enjoyed them. It's really as you say it, what is so great about skybyte is that he actually works as well as one would hope for a toy that big (I really like how everything ends up in the back).
And for Grimlock, it's just how massive he looks at that price without him being simplified as other toys have been for that price. I am very glad you also appreciated the variation on the transformation scheme they gave him. That meant a lot to me, it means they werent phoning it in, even for a line that might not get as much attention.
When fans ridicule the line and say today's kids deserve better, this guy is a good counterargument.

I’m totally guilty of disregarding RiD and this line or these types of younger themed lines as just phoned in and automatically lower quality but this time it really seems different.

I mean with Cheetor and Sky Byte and Jetfire, the cleverness in these transformations despite the economy of cost/materials, it is all really impressive to me. The attention to the detail on this Grimlock’s face and how his action feature works is undeniably appealing and just plain cool.

If I wasn’t so obsessed with Siege and had more funds I’d grab these in a heartbeat. You guys have sold me on them. If you get bored with them I have a good forever home waiting for them :lol:

Oh man Will, these are the figures we have needed from this line from the beginning. Sky Byte is so good, and he is perfect for his size. A bigger figure with similar engineering would be good too! He is ridiculously fun.

and I wholly agree with Grimlock. He is massive, but not really simplified, and he is durable as hell. that is a solid $30 toy. He is frikkin fantastic.

And the best part? Since I got them Saturday, they have been the figures I keep playing with! The siege and selects figure have been secondary to how much fun these 2 are.
