Thanks to Seibertronian Bacem, we have news that a video review has hit the internet for the highly anticipated Cyberverse Ultra Class Rack n' Ruin!

Rack n' Ruin is a very unique character to Transformers, and one whom took a long time to finally get his first toy. Rack n' Ruin debuted as a set of conjoined Autobots who were members of the Wreckers back in the original Marvel Comics, though much like their leader Impactor, it took time for them to break away from the comic world and into other media.

Transformers Cyberverse introduced Rack n' Ruin in Season 1 of the show, and he has been a regular background character for Season 2 and 3, even showing up as the Captain of one of the Arks in the Season 2 finale! And with Impactor finally getting some mainline toy love and Whirl getting some cartoon love (finally), it seems it is Rack n' Ruins turn to join them in toy form.

The new toy is part of the Ultra Class assortment, and will be around $20 USD. He has the armor up gimmick that Clobber has, and much like her, he has some decent articulation and a pretty neat transformation.

I'm from England and yeah, it's a bit impenetrable

So the Arcee and Thunderhowl I ordered on Target.com as part of the BOGO sale have changed their order status to "backordered" even though I ordered them hours after the sale started they were still taking pre-orders long after. Hope this isn't the first step in them canceling my order as other had warned happened to them in the past. :(

So the first email they sent me yesterday said the release date had been changed to 2/27, but backordered to 3/6. Now I've just received another email saying backordered to 3/16. Really hope this order doesn't get canceled.

Geez, this isn't sounding good.

A friend on Twitter has his delivery date updated to 3/6 for those toys, so it seems weird stuff is afoot here.

Picked some stuff up from Target on the last day of the sales. Cyberverse turned out to be a much bigger deal than I thought it would be, so some important characters needed toys got, no matter the quality!

i'm glad Dead End and the Scraplet are my only 2 scouts, they are not that good, but i'm glad to have Dead End, he ended up being my favorite con! Soundwave is pretty alright, he's not great, but he will do. I loved him in Season 3. I just wish his faceplate was the same as the show model, I'm contemplating shaving it town and painting the eyes red to match the show model.

Repugnus is wonderful, that is what the 1-steps were supposed to be, I love him. the beast mode is super cute, and the transformation is great. I love how you can't really see the robot mode is beast mode. This is the 1 step we always needed.

Now to hunt down the remainder of the Resistance and the other cyberverse guys I want:
-1-step Whirl
-the 4 final deluxes / Maccadam
-Warrior Hammerbyte
-Ultra Rack n' Ruin
-Ultimate Iaconus
-Meteorfire
-Wildwheel

Image

With them, I now have the con half of the Resistance!

And the irony of getting Repugnus while wearing a Repugnus!

That tiny repugnus is super cute, glad you got him!

while I wish he had a mouth, the con symbol really helps the look here. I adore him despite being a bad toy. Good characterization in the show will do that!

Image

Also, it's really cool to see the height different from beast to robot mode for Repugnus. They nailed him.

And I predict that in the next TV show, Grotusque will finally get a new animated show model and toy, following Twinferno (RiD2015) and Grotusque (Cyberverse)

A little group shot of my Cyberverse dudes. Got some to go that I want, but I like this, it's a nice mix of good toys and good characters

A friend of the site, Michael, sent some cool news our way. He spotted the new Cyberverse Warrior figures, Starscream and Hammerbyte. These warrior figures seem to have more articulation than before and that Strarscream has a nice new cybertronian alt mode. These were found at a Walmart in Florida. These are part of a rebranded Cyberverse line called Bumblebee Cyberverse Adventures. Yearly rebranding is common in longer toylines to let stores know that these toys are new.

If you find these toys, let the community know through our forums.

Even the show switches to using the rebranding by the 13th episode of Season 3. Yet, Bumblebee is not the main character at that point in the show. Sure, he stars in some of those episodes, but usually shares the spotlight with at least one or two other characters.

Funny thing is, despite the better quality and good looking toy, I have no interest in actually getting a toy of this Starscream

Heyyy nice to be back on the site again! Hopefully I'll get the review for this up soon. Thank you posting this as news. I needed the boost today.

Here's Hammerbyte by the way. Was more concerned about Starscream.

Oh I thought these had been found already. I spotted them Monday (3/2) at a walmart in South Dakota. I hid a shark guy, I'll probably get him next time I go if he is there still. I knew I should have sent pictures and logged it on the site! Maybe next time.

I want that Starscream but I’ll do what I did with Bee and gunna hold off in the hopes they do an actual Deluxe that’ll do him justice. I made that mistake with Optimus and it still annoys me.

If they do make a Deluxe Starscream, it'll probably be in his normal body rather than that upgraded one.

At this point, I don’t give a bleep, just give me a good, well articulated, properly painted, accurate Deluxe-ish Starscream based on his appearance in Cyberverse. And then pump Seekers out of it while they’re at it. :lol:
