Several Seibertronians (including Kanrabat, Madeus Prime, and others) have sent us a notification of fan-favourite YouTube personality and Transformers punnage master Thew, and his latest review - featuring the recently seen in hand (due to unusual UK distribution; see our story here) Transformers Cyberverse Shockwave.

You can check out the review embedded below, featuring comparisons with other Shockwave figures, Power of the Primes line deluxes, a look at the robot and ...vehicle mode, plus the accessory. Take a look, and let us know what you think!

Agreed. Thew's reviews (reThews?) are always highly entertaining to watch, and it's a shame that he doesn't have more subscribers.

Thew really is a great limerick master when it comes to presenting his love for TF figures :APPLAUSE:

The recent review of Transformers Cyberverse warrior Shockwave thought us that some toys in this line could be solid. Well, now we have a review for warrior Starscream which teaches us that some toys in this line can also be exactly what fans expected. Xortrider has just uploaded his review of the figure and we learn some tidbits we were all unaware of before.

For one we now know the toy's action gimmick, which is that the torso can spin when wound up. Also, we learn that his legs are on the same joint and are devoid of any articulation like knees, thigh swivel or ankle tilt (basically like G1 Jumpstarters but with an extra hip joint).

So let us know what you think? Do you think at least your kids will like this Starscream?

Enjoy the review!

That Starscream is pathetic I don't care who gives me the 'it's just for kids' argument, kids can have a toy that's decently made. You know, with a line of toys that has one steps, 3 steps, and scouts that are gimmicky, simple, and lack articulation, it make you wonder why they decided to restrict the warrior figures? Say what you want about RID have so many gimmicky toys, but at least it had a decent line of Warriors, so there's something for anybody. Here's hoping they'll get better in later waves.

i never puts out final judgement and decision until i saw a video review. with RID, even is there are a lot of gimmick line, at least their warrior class are fun, with decent articulation and interesting transformation. my first impression with RID was not good, but the video reviews of the warrior class change that. significantly. with cyberverse however, my first impression of them are less than meh. and the video review that is out so far, none can bring my impression up to above meh. i know there are definitely people who will love this line, but sadly i can't see myself being one of them right now. here's hoping there's a cyberverse figure that actually got my interest, or else 2019 will be kinda dry for me.

What angers me the most is that they insist on insulting children's intelligence by thinking they won't care that their toy looks and feels bad, not only is the gimmick weak in both ambition and execution, but it also is completely barren of any paint from the waist down. It's like this was a knockoff. :BANG_HEAD:
How can Shockwave be so food and Starscream so pathetic IN THE SAME LINE?

sorry to say that none of the toys that came after TF Prime/Beasthunters will ever live up to the same standards, i get these are geared for kids and thats great but what we got a decade ago from the tv shows was far better, its like they put most of the effort to make the toys interesting on the generations and movie lines and left the cartoon line lacking
the new show interests me and i like the designs i just wish they gave a bigger crap about the toys :-?

Running 3 or 4 different lines at the same time is totally %&$#!$ stupid! They need to drop this baby crap that doesn't sell & just concentrate on Generations.

Seems Shockwave ate the rest of the budget for the toyline. :lol:

It's only logical that, if there's going to be only one good toy in the line, it has to be Shockwave.

The Star Wars fans are boycotting the crap Disney is making. Why can't the Transformers fan do the same? Don't buy this over-priced low quality crap. Buy Generations, Studio Series or Masterpiece. Simply leave this garbage rotting on the pegs. Maybe then Hasbro will get the message.

As long as you keep buying it, Hasbro is going to keep making it.

That assumes Generations toys sell well. The truckloads of unsold wave 1 Rodimus Prime toys at my Walmart says otherwise.

I hate this toy that wasn't made for me. I know they make other toys for me, but that isn't enough. They should stop making toys that aren't for me and only make toys for me.

Very well said, and welcome to seibertron :-)

Aimless, kids buy these. Does that mean you're going to run up to little kids wanting to buy the toys of the characters they've been watching, and tell them they can't because you don't like them? Can't see that working out well ;-)

Better yet imagine someone doing that when g1 toys were on shelves...

I think that's a brilliant idea. In fact let's go further and rip the toys out of kids hands, what's the worst that can happen?
