We had video reviews for the new Transformers Cyberverse Battle Call figures Wildwheel and Meteorfire and now Chuckdawg has a review for the last figure of this class (that we know of), Bumblebee! He can currently be found at US retail.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Battle Call Trooper Bumblebee is an ok Ultra Class sized figure. There's really nothing new here as we've seen Bumblebee in every size class this line has to offer. The Battle Call gimmick is fun, but I feel it's lacking without an Officer Class figure to interact with it. While it might not be for everyone, I strongly recommend not paying the $45+ these figures are going for on eBay.

Not too bad for a Bee, with a very unique gimmick.

BUT WHY THE HOLLOW LEGS WITH NO FEET? :HEADHURTS:
Seriously, this ruin the figure completely. And as seen in the video, that Bee can barely stand up.

Lot of things are being sacrificed in this series. Looks like budget shortage or emphasis on gimmicks

wildwheel: no storage for hat.

warrior optimus: axe is too noticeable and those legs are chunky in truck mode

electronic bunblebee: are we seeing a return of the supreme cheetor mess, unnecessary light and barely stands?

As for electronics and foldup armor, ill pass, But i would love to own Arcee, she looks decent.

Just go for the Deluxes, then.

It is a good idea

Still i haven't found any good actual warrior/deluxe figures. Iceland is unlucky :BANG_HEAD:
No sign of new stuff til 2021 probably.
The newest we have are from cyberverse adventures are 1-Step Whirl and 1-Step Bludgeon (worst weapon gimmick ever, flapping wrist) and recolored sting shot Bumblebee's.

I have few elite class that i like (still they look like they are deluxe sized) i liked, the Grimlock (Crash Bash Armor)and Bumblebee (Ocean Fury) but i don't use the armors. CV Grimlock may be small is a decent G1 representative just needs a sword. PotP Voyager Grimlock is too chunky in t-rex mode for me.

My Pink Princess of Selfies has arrived. She is a pretty wonderful litle deluxe. i love the feel of the plastic, she and Bee feel the best in this aesthetic. The kibble kinda hinders the arms some, but she's pretty fun. And I am only a head away from completing Maccadam, who feels so much better with almost his whole self put together, much more solid to me.

also, Yippee-Ki-Yay Mother Function

Still love that they made Skywarp a lady. And that she is basically one of 2 named seekers to survive the show. Although I wish she would have talked or gotten to use her teleporting powers.

It's also cool since it sidestepped the normal trio, allowing Nova Storm to take that part for this run. Still wish we could get a toy of Alphastrike since they were partners.

This seeker set is pretty fun. I want to take some more pictures of the translucent plastics. Really wish Thrust and Thundercracker were the same levels of translucent, but it happens, and Skywarp and Screamer have good reasons to be translucent (teleporting and ghost).

Not many Cyberverse toys left in the line, and I want to go back and hunt down a couple older ones to make sure I get the characters. It was a great show, so I will enjoy the toys that I have got!

A thought just crossed my mind.

What if this Seeker set has everyone glowing because it represents the moment in Season 2 where Starscream is glowing with AllSpark energy while he takes the sparks of all the other Seekers, causing them to momentarily glow too as they all die?

'Twould also explain why Skywarp's figure looks more like Nova Storm.

Would not be surprised, even if the figures are using the Starscream season 3 "concept" figure (I use the term since it's a Cybertronian alt mode). It would only be missing Acid Storm then of the named seekers that were de-sparked.

Could also be the ghosts of said seekers Bumblebee encounters while with Meteorfire.

Speaking of which, should have him here soon. Hoping to find him in stores today but if not got him and Wild Wheel all but locked in online.

After those 2, the only Cyberverse figures left to get are Iaconus, Thunderhowl (potentially both), and the Repugnus set for me. Unless they actually do that Ultra Skullcruncher too that we had listings for.

Also trying to track down scout Shadow Striker, Ultra Slipstream, Warrior Windblade, and Spark Armor or warrior Jetfire. Kinda want to get a nice complete cast.

Also also, Cyberverse is proving to be great for repurposing dups of other figures. My TR Astrotrain is going to that shelf, as is a CW Dead End, RiD2015 Bludgeon and Twinferno, and either RTS or TR Perceptor, haven't decided there yet. Almost tempted to move my T30 Jetfire and TR Windblade there too for those 2, but I like how different the Cyberverse Windblade is and she had a decent toy out too, same with Jetfire, and both have decent Cyberverse figures whereas the aforementioned repurposings did not get a toy outside of Dead End.

I still wish we could get blind Cyberverse Perceptor as a toy. that might be my biggest regret that the line didn't give us.

Oh and Titan Iaconus and Croaton someday please

WANT! And D-Max, if you take pics like that of the entire batch, we could news it. I know I want to see more and I think others would too.

Target with a coupon and a red card proved very beneficial today. Found all of my Cyberverse hopefuls today! That cuts my target list down to only 3 new releases and 4 old ones!

I wish they had colored those Monsterbots to look like some of the Energon Masters seen in the show.

I'm just adoring the fact that we got baby Repugnus figures.

Also, you know what's funny/weird? Remember when those PotP T-shirts came out with the 3 Amazon exclusives on them? I got the Repugnus shirt because I thought it was really cool looking, and I've wore it fairly often since. And now, my collection has 8 Repugnus figures in it now, when at the time I got the shirt it only had 1 or 2, can't remember if I got the Amazon Repugnus before the shirt or not.

the Repugni have exploded!

So let's start with some Meteorfire. I like this guy. He is limited in articulation as most Cyberverse figures are, coming in around the same movement levels as the Ultra Class Rack n' Ruin and Clobber. But minus the head, that's OK with me. I wasn't expecting him to move a ton. I enjoy the robot mode aesthetic, and I dig the colors, they are very nice, even if not entirely show accurate (I really want a yellow head crest on him). The robot mode is also pretty clean, no real kibble, and it's pretty tight.

Transformation is actually interesting, and involves some pretty nice movements in the lower torso and shoulders to get him to jet mode.

The jet mode is OK, i knew what I was getting. It sort of looks like a chipmunk with his cheeks filled. But I did it in person, it's pretty fun.

And the gimmick is sort of cool too. If you talk loudly or blow on the figure, the light glows brighter and then erupts into a blue and red flashing light for a few seconds. i like it as his spark glowing.

so have some pics of him in jet, robot, and armored modes, and a pic of him with his Alien hunting partner!

So Wild Wheel then.

He is not as good as Meteorfire, I will say that. Alt mode is not as nice, and the robot mode needed some more muscle on the bones, like maybe add his poncho please? But he's not bad, a little more posable than Meteorfire thanks to ball jointed elbows, and the cowboy hat is awesome. He can also holster his blasters in his hips, which is another awesome cowboy touch. Transformation is pretty basic and alt mode isn't anything to write home about.

But I am glad I got him, he's pretty enjoyable as the Cowboy Transformer we always needed

I think we're supposed to believe that the translucent green represents (or is meant to make up for his lacking) his poncho.

Eh, that's pretty weak. He should have had SS DotM Megatron's cloak or something
