Default Cyberverse toyline official images and early release galleries

As the new Cyberverse toyline starts showing up around the world, first in Australia and then the UK (probably in Asia by now), various online stores have been putting up a number of official images as well, which can be seen together here and here.


The first waves of the Cyberverse toyline include...

Scout - Bumblebee, Grimlock, Megatron, Starscream
1-step - Blurr, Bumblebee, Soundwave
Warrior - Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Shockwave, Starscream
Ultra - Bumblebee, Grimlock, Starscream
Ultimate - Megatron, Optimus Prime

A couple of early video reviews - Warrior Shockwave and Warrior Starscream.

And with the first wave of the 1-steps being redecos of RID 1-steps, a quick comparison of Cyberverse Soundwave with RID Soundwave can be seen here.

A surprise find on the HK ToysRUs website is Warrior Thundercracker (a redeco of Starscream).
This hasn't been listed anywhere before, so could be a TRU exclusive (or was meant to be), as it looks to have come out on its own, between two waves.

Looks like Thundercracker was indeed meant as a ToysRUs exclusive, as it has been found at a Singapore TRU with import stickers on it, but most countries will either not see it, or it will show up at some other outlet (like Amazon).

Any one else notice how primes arm 'turn into a gun' it's got to be his biggest gun yet, relative to the toy.

Wow - I really hate to keep being negative about this line as I can usually find the positive in most anything but that Optimus is the worst toy yet!

And Acid Storm? The Universe version was released a full decade ago and it is 50 times better than this! Should not have toy engineering progressed rather than regressed over 10 years? Or at least charge us less for the figure?

The only thing you could say about this Acid Storm is, besides the green head and a bit of extra silver, the paintjob is the most G1 we have ever seen outside of the Bot Shots one. But is that a good thing considering...

On the plus side: Optimus has visible fists.
Conversely: His truck mode looks like a malfunction!

Half-Formers! Worse Than Meets The Eye!

Remember that giant Bumblebee toy from RID that is about 60cm tall?
Looks like Hasbro will be doing it again for Cyberverse, with this leaked image of a Cyberverse styled Bumblebee that looks about 50-60cm tall.

Arguably worse than Action Masters. I'd rather a Transformer that doesn't transform at all than one that transforms halfway and gives up. To paraphrase Jazz, do it properly or don't bother doing it at all.
