The Cyberverse line is easily the most ignored current Transformers line by fans. Which is ironic since it is probably the one ordered in highest quantities by retail stores. It is also ignored in the video review circuit but we have some below from fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg 1999.

Enjoy!

Transformers Cyberverse One Step Hot Rod and Wheeljack

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Hot Rod and Wheeljack are fun additions to the One-Step sub-set of the Cyberverse line. Both feature a fun weapon gimmick and in the case of Hot Rod, one that works better than the larger scale toy. Each figure makes for a fun desk toy and enjoyable addition to any collection.





Transformers Cyberverse Scout Class Ratchet

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Most collectors have ignored the Scout Class line from Cyberverse which is a shame since they're fun figures. Ratchet draws heavily from its RID look with a slight nod to G1. The gimmick of a tow hook is fun but a little confusing since it doesn' really fit with the character. Overall Scout Class Ratchet from the Cyberverse line is a fun figure and worth a look.






Transformers Cyberverse Scout Class Shadow Striker

chuckdawg1999 wrote:While the Scout Class in the Cyberverse line is one of, if not the most polarizing sublines in Transformers history, I enjoy the figures for what they are. Shadow Striker features a fun spring-loaded blast effect that kinda reminds me of Mario Kart for some reason. Ultimately, I see most collectors passing on the figure and holding out for a Warrior Class version.

Thanks to the In Demand Toys Facebook page we're getting our first look at stock photos of some of the highly anticipated Cyberverse Spark Armor figures. Under the Power of the Spark subtitle we're looking at three of the four figures found in wave 1 of the new Battle Class.

Starscream with Demolition Destroyer
Sky-Byte with Drill Driver
Prowl with Cosmic Patrol

Not seen is Jetfire with Tank Cannon. It should be noted that In Demand Toys is a UK store and wont be stocking these figures. What do you think of these new stock photos? Sound off in the Energon Pub forums

In which Starscream cannibalizes Scoop, Sky-Byte cannibalizes Nosecone, and Prowl cosplays as his Energon self.

Actually, Prowl looks to be wearing a Triggerhappy fur. ;)

By the way, love your Screenname

I actually will probably get some of these if they have actual articulation, the armor part is what's really getting me, I just love that gimmick

All three have arm articulation, Prowl will likely have knees due to his transformation, not sure about Starscream and Sky-Byte though...

I think previous images implied that they have knee articulation as well.
Re: Video Reviews for Scout Ratchet and Shadow Striker and One Step Wheeljack and Hot Rod from Cybervers (2018173)

Yep, they all have at least 8 points at the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. I'm not positive about neck articulation, but some do have waist articulation at this scale.

I think the figure I might be looking forward to the most is Elite Optimus Prime with Sky Turbine (the jet). It appears to be the best version of the character yet, he has lots of extra articulation not found on the smaller figures, and even has heel spurs so the armor doesn't make him fall over backwards.

He does have a butt flap, though.

If these are like the RID Armor figures these will be the best articulated figures of the line. Just wish they came with weapons.

I think Sy-Byte’s drill tank looks a little more like Drillhorn from the Victory Breastforce

Or at least it looks like he European Rescue Force repaint of Drillhorn.

In this day and age, everybody needs some proper butt coverage.

I was right about the size, these look to be around Scout/Legends size and I don't think the larger figures will be bigger than Voyager.

Thanks to a Facebook post by In Demand Toys, we have some new images to share with you today of the upcoming Transformers Cyberverse Warrior Class Gnaw!

Cyberverse Warrior Gnaw is a brand new mold that takes some inspiration from the previously released Titans Return Gnaw figure, though they are not the same mold. He also features a "Mace Mash" attack, where he swings his arm and his mace comes flying at filty Autobot faces!

Gnaw is set to be available later this year alongside the Battle for the Spark figures that include the Spark Armor gimmick. He will retail at $14.99.

So what do you think of this Gnaw figure? Are you ready to troop build this guy? Let us know in the comments section below!

Not only does gnaw have mushroom pegs for elbows, but his shark arms seem to be one piece with the head halves. I know the partcounts are tight for this line, but ouch.

I can see getting one or two of these to repaint.

Why do they have the shark head parts hanging off the legs again? It was clunky on the Generations toy and looks clunky here. Why not simply have it as a backpack like the G1 toy?

Glad that what I thought was a peg hole dead center on his torso is really a square, and therefore doesn't really look like a robo-navel.

But for some reason, all the unpainted grey makes him look a youngbot wearing one-piece Sharkticon sleeper PJs in robot mode. So I guess I won't be buying every single toy I see minus-1, like I did with TR Gnaw...and like I may end up doing with the Scraplet.

Oh well, my 20-or-so Prime Wars/Legends Sharkticons, and BotCon Sharkticon and Shark Sentry trios, can probably cope with fewer new playmates this year. But they'll still ask me every day when the Quintessons unique to Dweller in the Depths are going to finally get their toys...

“Inspired by” TR Gnaw? The transformation engineering looks exactly the same to me. Right down to the lazy-butt “hands stuck to the back of the foot” thingy and the monster arms just hanging off his shins.
