    I'm not a huge movieverse guy, but I planned on picking up Powerglide for the g1-related-ness. When I found him this morning they had a Blackout that looked pretty cool to. Once I got home and opened them up, I was pleasantly surprised! I might have to pick up a few more of these along the way. They're more complex than some deluxes and have a great deal of detail!

    I do have the preview prime, and while I'm not a huge fan of the new "abs" design, he's still stunningly complex for such a small fig.

    So for those of you who've picked up the other ones, how do you like 'em? I was looking at Sentinel and Ironhide, but I'm holding off cause I've already blown my budget for toys for now, ha.

    I have the preview Prime and he's meh, but I really like the way Ironhide looks.

    Cyberverse Sentinel is really cool! He's got a quite a punch for a small size. Sweet thing about him is that he comes with his shield and blade/sword. Not many "legend" size class come with accesories and these are among the best..

    Megatron is a solid, well done figure. I'd say he and Blackout are my favorites. Both have transformations that are complex yet not frustrating. I'm still amazed by how large Blackout's alt mode is.

    Yeah, and while the scorponok included is a little useless while attached to the copter, ITS A CUTE SQUISHY SCORPONOK! So what's not to love?

    Also: wasn't there a cyberverse Optimus with a trailer? When is that supposed to come out?

    Ironhide and Blackout have extraordinary detail, although Ironhide's arms suck. Sentinel is fine, but isn't as intricately sculpted. They gave him height instead. Powerglide is very nice all around.

    Yeah, Megatron too. I didn't find them, so I think stores just aren't carrying them yet or they weren't put out. BBTS and HTS have them.

    I saw both Prime and Megatron trailers yesterday, but passed. Kind of regret it now, but they'll be available soon enough.

    Preview Prime is a little eh because of the legs, gonna open Powerglide and Blackout when I get the chance. Definitely picking up Hatchet when he comes out, and maybe Guzzle if he looks as cool as he sounds.

    Powerglide is OK... Blackout... would be fine if his frelling blades weren't all bent and warped. Ironhide has crappy arms and loose legs. Sentinel and Optimus are the only ones without issues for me so far. Unfortunately, it's soured me on the others. I had the bigger Prime and Megatron sets in my hands today, but I put them back and got Topspin instead. So far I love the Voyagers and Deluxes I have (Shockwave, Megatron, Topspin, Roadbuster, Starscream).

    After I posted here I saw the Optimus/Megatron with trailers, which are the second wave of the sets that are out now of Bee and Starscream. So is the megatron in that set the same as the single-pack megs thats out now just with a bigger trailer? I might wait on him and get the big one, if that's the case...

    Cabs are identical (maybe some deco changes, can't remember); Prime ditches his jetpack and guns for a trailer and Megatron his mini-tank-guns for a trailer as well.

    I like Ironhide, but not as much as Prime. It's the arms. I just wish it was designed where the arms could do more than just sit relaxed. Prime is made of legs but it doesn't really bother me too much. I'd still recommend Ironhide but not over Blackout, Powerglide or Megatron.

    yeah fourthed on ironhide's arms, they're awful. the ball joints point directly backward so you can't raise the arms forward at all but only flap like a bird, and they pop off from ball joints way too easily.

    Picked up Megatron and Sentinel Prime for my daughter yesterday, and Powerglide for me. Powerglide is OK, Megatron is about the same. Sentinel Prime is by far the best of the Cyberverses I have (to include Preview Prime) - good transformation, and cool accessories.

    When transforming Megatron into bot-mode, I usually snap both halves of the fuel tank around his right arm to make a fusion cannon - anyone else doing this?
