Default Toy Review - Cyberverse Megatron (Ultimate)

MEGATRON
Series - Cyberverse
Size/class - Ultimate
New/remould/redeco - New
Wave - 1
Released here - Yes (8/2018)
Approximate Retail Price - $60
Approximate Size - 24cm
Allegiance - Autobot
Alt-mode - Truck cab
Main Features/Gimmicks - Matrix Mega Shot
Main Colours - red, blue
Main Accessories - None. Why should a $60 toy have any accessories?











PROS
+ Solid beefy looking robot and tank modes
+ Good face sculpt with use of metallic plastic on the head and thighs
+ Good level of leg articulation

CONS
- Zero head, elbow, wrist or waist articulation. There's basically no articulation from waist up that isn't part of the toy's transformation... so it's kinda like a Transformer toy from the 1980s... in 2018.
- Fusion cannon is not removable and the toy has no accessories.
- Turret cannot turn.

Transformation Tip: when transforming from tank to robot mode, be sure to transform the legs first, otherwise the mechanism to release the head may get jammed.

OVERALL
Unbelievably bad for a $60 toy. Avoid.

The photos don't do this toy justice IMO.

It's pretty hard to confuse Megatron with Optimus Prime. Shyttered Glass universe?

You're right, the photos certainly don't.

Because I find that the toy's appearance looks good which is why a review is needed to expose how much of a fraud this toy is.

Gok, your reviews have been very informative and I think everyone appreciates you taking a bullet for us by having first crack at this new line...

...but I gotta ask, if the line is so uniformly bad why do you keep buying them?

For the same reason that I wasted money on Action Masters in the early 90s.

There is no good reason.

Take it as "I'm buying this crap so you don't have to!"
