The latest wave of one step Transformers from the Cyberverse line is hitting retail across North America and fellow Seibertronian Chuck Dawg has reviews of the three new molds, Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream, for anyone interested.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:I've always been a fan of the One-Step style figures so when we saw that there would be G1-ish styled figures released in the Cyberverse line I was quite pleased. Well, for one reason or another these have been somewhat hard to find in certain areas but I got lucky and am VERY happy to bring them to you now. If you're going to buy one, Starscream is my personal favorite, but all of them would make for great desk toys.

Starscream is the best as He is a retool of TLK OneStep Megatron

In the video Chuckdawg says that these figures are really hard to find: yet here in Italy they are on display in many stores.

I reviewed these a month ago, posted it here and now they have disappeared from the site. That's messed up why would the video thread been deleted especially if they are new?

But yeah they are totally fun. I agree with Chuck these ones steps are great

This is very bizarre, could you please report your problem in the problem reporting thread: seibertron-com-problem-reporting-thread-t216.php

Also, if ever you post a new review and want to bring it to our attention, please send a link (just like you reported for Hot Rod)

Funny thing, a viewer pointed out that these three figures have something in common, they're all retools of Megatron related movie toys.

If you recall, we posted a news article on the Transformers Cyberverse Battle Base Trailer with Warrior Class Optimus Prime sightings in U.S. retail. And now, we have an English review of it! Coming from the YouTube reviewer "Bert the Stormtrooper" made a video review on both Warrior Class Optimus Prime and the Battle Base Trailer. He actually had a good time with the set, specifically the trailer, and how it looked. For those who don't know, the set includes a straight re-release of the Cyberverse Warrior Optimus Prime, with the axe gimmick, and a completely new trailer meant to hold figures as a playset.

Watch the review below, and make a judgement of the set, and tell us in the Pub forums below!

The Cyberverse toys are shaping up to be a lot of fun for the 6-10 year old demographic. I think that the trailers playability is AWESOME. I wish I could just get the trailer and bypass that Prime. I haven't bought any of the Cyberverse toys, but I'm glad there is something for the kids.

I received one of these sets as a Christmas gift yesterday. I actually enjoyed the trailer more than I did Optimus himself.

You've got to love it when Amazon tries to be coy by sticking with code names while giving us a full look at the figure. That doesn't seem to be changing any time soon, the latest cases being our first look at stock photos of two Cyberverse Scouts on Amazon.com.au. This time around it's Ratchet under the name "Aces" and Shadow Striker under the name "Rockhounds". We got a look at these two in bot mode at New York Comic Con and later we got CG pictures, but this is our first look at both modes of the actual figures.

These are basically what you'd expect from the Scout class; barely acceptable bot modes and half an alt mode with an action feature. Ratchet's "Grapple Grab" is a crane that swings up over his shoulder. Shadow Striker's "Stealth Sniper Shot" isn't a shot at all, but rockets that come out of the back of her "car" mode. Because of her feature being in the back we've yet to actually see any pictures of her alt mode from the front as the rockets have been the focus.

So are you a fan of the Cyberverse Scout class or are these the bane of your collector existence? Sound off in the Energon Pub below.

The front of that Ratchet's ambulance hood is the same as Animated Ratchet's:

I'm likely to buy Shadow Striker, depending on the size of her head, because it's definitely not for the toy itself. I like the character, being that she's a femcon with a sports car alt mode, but I'm thinking a Transformers Prime Deluxe Vehicon that actually transforms would make for a better Shadow Striker in my CHUG collection. I just have to find a suitable Shadow Striker head to put in place of the Vehicon's.

Interesting that Cyberverse Shadow Striker's head looks to be based more on the original Side Burn (AKA Speedbreaker) head..

rather than the retooled head created for the original Roulette and Shadow Striker:

It's kinda disheartening to see how close Shadowstriker is to actually having a proper alt mode. A backpack and a flip up chest would have done it for her.

These half-formers really needed more thought

Instead, she has a rocket-powered, ground-based, rolling skydiver mode. :P

If you did not know yet, the entire Cyberverse toyline is based around gimmicks. We knew Soundwave would have a Laserbeak gimmick but we never really got a good look at it. It turns out Lazerbeak will be made of clear red plastic and a third of his body (before you get to the wings) will be popping out of Soundwave's chest. This is for the Warrior Soundwave toy. We also have images of Warriors Prowl and Hot Rod as well as Ultimate Bumblebee and One Steps Megatron, Bumblebee and Prowl. While we did just get a One Step Cyberverse Megatron, this one has a new transformation and a missile firing gimmick.

Enjoy all the pics below, which were found on Hasbro's site.

It looks like Laserbeak put on some weight and got his big butt stuck inside Soundwave. Looking less like a condor and more like a chicken. Time for a New Year's resolution diet to get rid of that excess badonkadonk.

Yea, and looks like a skinned raw chicken is coming out of the oven.

If SIEGE's effect parts would fit on his shoulder cannons :-?
