We posted pictorial reviews for the much anticipated deluxe Optimus Prime and Shockwave from Cyberverse already but of course pictures don't convey the transformation. To cover that part, Chuckdawg1999 has video reviews of these two toys.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Shockwave is a good deluxe figure but I feel it falls short when compared to Bumblebee and Megatron. My one big issue is the neon-pink rubber cable that connects the large cannon to the backpack; it's way too stiff out of the box and even after working it can still limit arm articulation. Overall, Shockwave is a solid purchase but I would recommend the other figures in the wave first.



chuckdawg1999 wrote:While I was hoping that Optimus Prime would be the best figure of the first four, it ends up falling somewhere in the middle due to incredibly loose joints that make a fun transformation finicky. The included Ion Blaster while small, features quite a bit of detail but I feel the Matrix is where the included blast effect will spend most of its time. Overall, this is a solid figure but not the home run that I was hoping for.

The first wave of Transformers Cyberverse Ultra Class Energon Armor figures has been found in Canada. imfallenangel over at Cybertron.ca reported seeing Ultra Class Energon Armor Clobber at a Toysrus in Ontario. This fan also took images of the figure. It seem the armor is a pop up gimmick where it is stored in it's back when not in use. This character is a female robot who looks like Lugnut. However, she transforms into a tank type of vehicle here rather than a plane.

While this toy was found in Canada, we still have yet to see any of these toys in other countries, so if you find them, let us know.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this totally-not-Lugnut is female, right? I can kinda dig the idea of Lugnut having a sister that turns into a tank. I'm not so keen on this figure, but still, cool concept.

I'm thinking I might grab this one. Not a big fan of the cartoon aesthetic but the cons could use a few more girls

Does anyone know if spark armor Grimlock with Trash Crash is worth buying on discount. Only things i've noticed is that his robot mode is compact but his upper t-rex body seems rather thing and noticeable robot feet on his back?

I'm not sure about Trash Crash drone. Unless the is a way to securely lock the arms i might toss it into the garbage bin and find a suitable weapon for Grimlock.

I dont like thst the armour is spring loaded. The base toy is ok but lacks important articulation points. I returned mine.

I really dig the set. Grimlock has a unique transformation, it always impresses me how Hasbro can find a new way to go from Dinosaur to robot. The garbage truck can be fiddly if you don't know how it locks into place.

Cyberverse Quintession with Shockwave and Prowl pack. The Quintession has a rotating head gimmick and Prowl and Shockwave have helmets (possibly to brainwash them)

Just saw the tweet and was going to post it as well. I wonder if this is related to the Quintesson rumors that popped up in the Earthrise thread. I may have to pick this up!

Do you remember, some weeks back, when we reported on a possible Voyager Quintesson figure being released? As it seems to have turned out, the Voyager price point was correct, but the toy itself actually belongs to the Cyberverse line, as demonstrated by Peaugh on Twitter. He found this three pack at Target, and it includes a Quintesson Judge toy, with a rotating head gimmick, as Peaugh demonstrates in his tweet. Figures of Prowl and Shockwave are included, who come with helmets that simulate mind control by the Quintesson.

It doesn't appear to be a Target exclusive, and is showing up at retail right now, despite never being officially confirmed or shown at any show or convention.

So are you going to try and find this pack? Excited to have another Quintesson figure after 14 years? Let us know what you think below, and please report your sightings in your local sightings pages to help your fellow collectors.

Well it’s not the best, buts it’s the first Quintesson figure we’ve finally ever gotten. Not bothering to count the monstrosity that was Alpha Q.

As an aside, Shockwave and Prowl look like the Spark Armor figures.

No cannon mode mentioned for the Quint as per some of the previous thread mentions so maybe another version to be released on its own yet. Think I'll stick with the third party thing I have rather than buying this set but nice to see them.

Looks nice. I'll add it to the "things I'll skip because I have to pay for Piranacon" list.

It would seem that this was the mystery Quintesson figure that was posted about a few weeks back... was hoping for an earth rise figure, though that would make little sense. Maybe for a post earth rise imprint.

To be fair, Earthrise is set before the Ark reaches Earth, with the line's story being about the Ark's journey through space.

Yeah, I’m gunna need that Quintesson. Shockwave I can repurpose as one of his little drones, Prowl will be harder to think up a reason to keep. Probably just gift it to a buddy’s kid.
