    I think there was this thing called "The Transformers" back in 1984...

    Any reviews out there yet, or incoming?

    Would be nice to see some actual hands-on opinions, rather than the "I looked at a stock photo, so I know it's literally worse than a dollar store knockoff Happy Meal toy!" viewpoints we've been enjoying so far.

    (not that a real review will necessarily improve anything. :)  )

    Junk! Really Hasbro can\'t design toys anymore. They expect people to keep buying junk.

    I believe I remember reading that the Transformers: Cyberverse series will be airing on Nickelodeon. Let's just hope its episodes won't premiere at 6 in the morning. (*cough*Cartoon Network's*cough*lousy scheduling*cough*)

    What is going on with these “toys”?!?!
    They look like Happy Meal prizes. What’s the point of these awesome Cyberverse designs if they’re gonna translate so poorly into toys?!?!
    Like seriously Hasbro, after pulling an engineering miracle with “Animated” there really is no excuse for this.
    Come on man!!!

    Animated toys would cost 25 dollars if made nowadays. You're comparing apples to pearls.

    Oh my god I almost forgot how they literally changed nothing but the paint from RID to make the Bumblebee and Soundwave One-Step Changers.

    It’s so bad.

    What? Where do you come up with these figures? Obviously I’m not comparing these with deluxe or leader class Animated. I’m using Legend class as the comparisons. Though if the deluxe and leader classes are following these examples my point still stands.

    Besides, the PotP/ CHUG figures that have been coming out are equally as intricate as the Animated toys were and the price point has only gone up a couple of dollars since then, so I don’t think it’s a matter of one being more complicated to produce than the other, these are just aesthetic design choices on Hasbro’s end.

    I agree with you that the toys are just getting more and more awful while they get more and more expensive, but it should be noted that it has become significantly more expensive to produce Animated-quality figures, in any class. The Prime Wars Trilogy, while still producing fantastic Leaders and pretty good Voyagers, had some really cheap Deluxes. It was nowhere near how nice the 2014 figures were.

    On the other hand, perhaps Hasbro could focus on making some decent figures like the Thrilling 30 line did instead of focusing too much of their lines on loads of different 1-step changers and similar types.

    Correct me if I'm wrong; the Warrior class are unfortunately rumored at $40 Australian, which is abou $30 U.S., and the e19.99 in Ireland are $23+ U.S., the British one's are the cheapest and closest to U.S. Prices.
