Part of wave 2 of the toyline associated with the new animated series Transformers: Cyberverse, one of the Seeker molds that have been released is the background character Acid Storm - which uses the same mold as the warrior class Starscream, just in bright green and yellow.

Fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has shared his review of the figure, which we have embedded below for you all to take a look - find out more, and let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Acid Storm is a repaint of Warrior Class Starscream. If you liked Starscream, you're probably me; for the rest of you, it's nice to see the more fringe members of the Seekers getting a little attention.

People will shoplift ANYTHING. Serously, it's pathetic. Just look at the toy section in any Winners or Marshall. And the worst thing is those destroyed packages with missing parts still sell at full price. Be cause reasons.

It’s kind of shocking how awful this line is. RID looks like a masterpiece line by comparison. Hollow, limited-to-almost-no articulation, gimmicks that intrude on transformation and cause floppiness on various parts, goofy or just plain bad designs, all at exorbitant price points. The excuse that these are aimed at children doesn’t fly either, as it can’t be justified with these price points. I certainly wouldn’t lay that kind of money down on such poorly made toys for any child I know. Hopefully this line fades away fast. At least WfC: Siege looks like a home run in almost every respect.

I agreevwith a few points but The price point argument is nonsense since the leaders in Cyberverse cost the same as Seige voyagers.

I am saying that price point is still too much. Every one of these figures is far overpriced for what you get.

And I am saying that its not, at least for the Ultimate class. The megatron in the pic below is only $30

$50 for a voyager sized Siege Shockwave (which is what we are getting) is a much bigger rip off by comparison.

Yup, Seige shockwave is a voyager sized bot who will be sold at leader price due to extra accessories. That means 50$ usd fot voyager shockwave, or 70$ CAD

Hmmm.... To be fair, it's like having a voyager Optimus Prime with a fully transformable trailer. I'll take the wait and see approach before casting my final jujement.


But as for Cyberverse, appart the voyager priced "leaders", this line suck mighty ass.

We knew that the Cyberverse toys had code names derived from Seinfeld characters. What we did not know is that we would have to search for these toys under those names to find them once they were released. But don't worry, in case you didn't know that Acid Storm was Uncle Leo, we have the links below for you to find these toys, and purchase them if you feel so inclined. While they are on the simpler side, some of the sculpting is downright gorgeous. Check out some shots of Megatron's noggin below as an example. Each are around the $19 mark and are ship and sold through Amazon, and thus Prime eligible.

Big thanks to Scotty P for finding these for us.

Megatron - https://www.amazon.com/Transformers-E19 ... 0787G4DG2/
Windblade - https://www.amazon.com/Transformers-E19 ... 0787GT563/
Acid Storm (shortpacked and thus low stock) - https://www.amazon.com/Tra-Cyberverse-W ... 0787JNJTH/

Shame that Uncle Leo couldn't turn out to be anyone from Victory.

Or that Newman couldn't be a Dinobot.

Oh well, I just hope this amusing practice continues.

Be reminded that this is a kiddie show, and the toys match that, quality wise. I was able to pick up Acid Storm last week, and while I don't expect MP, SS or even Generations quality with a kiddie show toy line..... she's just made out of sturdy, but cheap plastic, and this line is way more gimmick focused. Because of the gimmick, her wings don't really peg into place in her jet mode, so they're kind of floppy. She is one of the very few of this line that I'll get, and only because fembots.

Yeah, some miscommunication there. The Hasbro.com bio used male pronouns while the episode that first featured Acid Storm had the character voiced by a woman using an unambiguously female voice.

'Course, none of the dialogue was anything character-specific. Just some grunting and a single line of "Yes, captain," spoken to Slipstream. If not for the end credits specifically identifying this Seeker as Acid Storm, it could have just been any generic female green Seeker, as she also didn't have Acid Storm's exact color layout seen in the Hasbro character art. Nor did her partner really resemble Thrust that much despite the end credits likewise labeling him as such.
