    Lots of play potential. Modular bases. Big fun in a small size. Already going beyond movieverse. PRIME? Hell yeah. I hope we see some G1. I would LOVE a new Countdown set w/base, Ark price point.

    Keep thinking Ultimate Optimus' Omega Armor is a cyberverse Omega Supreme. Maybe I'm being wishful.

    Got the optimus and megatron action sets yesterday. In love. Excellent pieces. Must haves.

    Discuss. Now.

    Those Commanders are the hot spot for new G1 Minibot updates. Guzzle looks bad as hell.

    I actually see it as being too simplistic too be the future sure that is basiclly what the "future" is (small and simplistic) but in this case it seems like this is just a cheaper size class that offers more characters.

    Hopefully they put out some more molds that encourage Army building (Dreads are a good start).

    Some game based Bots and Cons.

    Would be sweet if they added battle terrain, like human building that can be collapsed or walls busted through.

    I must admit that I see the bulk of my future Transformers purchases in the Cyberverse class. They're really full of play value, in the way they can "interact" with each other, and best of all, they hardly take up shelf space!

    In the future transformers would transform themselves by the press of a button like stealth force but have the articulation of a action master.

    They are very addicting. They don't take up a lot of space and are relatively cheap, plus they generally look pretty good. Definitely plan on getting more.

    Big sets returning? Getting actual combiners instead of Powercore, that cost under $30 to complete?
    This line could be the key to it all. Turn Cyberverse into a 'Universe' line, spanning every generation, and this would never die.

    For whatever reason, I have a feeling we're just getting the same great Scouts and Legends under a combined name. But those armor sets are pretty awesome in and of themselves.
    I can see this line getting big though. And rightfully so. They're pouring a lot of heart and soul in this line.

    Making a cyberverse classics line will give us a better chance to get cobiners and city formers. Or it can go with beast wars and be kinda size accurate with classics toys.

    My thought would be that charging more than $40 (retail price) for cyberverse starscream, a toy resembling a smaller version of a toy that has been shelfwarming for over a year will drive yet another nail in the TF retail coffin in Sweden.

    I'm still trying to figure out that the little brackets on the back of Cyberverse Prime's trailer are supposed to be for :p

    I would be very interested in a Cyberverse G1 Prime with trailer.
    Trailer doesnt need to combine with Prime, just turn into the battle station and include a little Roller.

    Bonus points for making it big enough to fit Legion class cars inside.

    I hate to call anything the future because you never know how things will or will not take off with the kids market.

    I do think it has lots of potential though. Figures small enough that kids can take them with them by just putting them in their pocket. A nice look for such a small scale. Quick transformations to help the play pattern. With the added advantage of they can do bigger objects and characters without the retailer up roar of how much space an Ark play set for deluxe figures would take up.

    The movies aren't my thing, but I'm looking forward to any Transformers Prime stuff they want to show off and it could be pretty cool if they expand the line out to cover other Transformers series.

    I have Powerglide and like the toy well enough. I'd definitely like to see what they've got in mind for non-Movie Cyberverse figures.

    Anything, really. They're meant for modular play.

    Well they look like they fit together, a male connector on one half and female on the other. I can't help but think they may be a bigger plan for all these trailers etc.
