    Cyberverse is my new favourite thing this side of TFs. Seriously, these guys are awesome. Like Legends but better. The Ark looks great, and all the figures look hella fun. There even seems to be some cross-compatibility. (like on the two Megatrons, who are the same base robot but come with two different trailers) Also, I like Roller. He's got the big arm, but it actually looks like a prosthes... prosthe- fake arm, singe you can see a sculpted damaged arm. (complete with moulded snapped-off ball joint!)

    BTW, I hope the little bases can be compatible with teh Ark. If not, it's okay since you can just place them together, but it'd be awesome if they could clip on or something.

    Yeah, feels a bit like Micromasters all over again. I'm going to spend a lot of money this year...

    Yep, upgraded Micromasters describes them best. I love that all the Legends are new molds too!

    unfortunately with these upgraded-legend-class-type figures, we could expect a higher price than the previous legend class figures, but yeah, it's a pretty cool line, especially that ark playset

    Don't really have space to display my movie stuff right now, so I will be staying away from a lot of the smaller figures. Probably pick up the Ark to eventually set up with my Movie Robot Heroes. Looks like they stepped up their game a bit, there is gonna be one big cluster of Tranformers come mid-may.

    Loving how Megs and Optimus really parallel each other with truck alt modes and trailer attack base thingies.

    Blackout is all sorts of gold. Handles the rotor weapon FAR, far better than the Voyager, comes with a Skorponok figure (fingers crossed Skorpy transforms), AND should be a decent size larger than other Legends for some attempt at scale (robot mode should be good, at least; I hope).

    I wonder what Roller transforms into. A space rover, maybe? Something man-made and space-explorey.

    Starscream's ship looks like it might be THAT thing.
    Starscream himself looks... really mistransformed. But he can't be worse than the last one. ...Right?

    I'll give you Powerglide. He'll look nice with Beachcomber, Brawn and Hoist.

    Honesty I'm pretty underwhelmed by them at this point. I'm interested in the Ark but that's about it. My interest in small Transformers (minus Scouts) has gone downhill. Not really impressed with them compared to the bigger boys.

    Cyberverse makes me want to be eleven again.

    I don't expect it to hold my interest enough for me to clean up the whole line, but bare minimum I'm getting Powerglide and Blackout just for the sake of their sheer coolness. I really think I'll get Starscream + carrier too. Prime + jetpack might be fun for flying around. And somehow if I can find room for it and my girlfriend doesn't judge me too much I could just see myself picking up that Ark...

    Not only is it great to see them bringing in the playsets and experimenting with the smaller TFs, but I really like the space-based focus. I grew up with the space dogfights of the animated movie, but there were never really toys like the "Autobot shuttle," or really small playable toys of large characters, etc.

    I agree on both counts. I like the space-focused TF's and would've (and still would) enjoy toys of the Ark, Autobot Shuttle, Nemesis (That we never got a Titanium of it is a crime), etc.

    I also like the idea of using Legends and Scouts to comprise a smaller scale. I'll be picking up the Ark and several of the Scouts and Legends. The only large scale DOTM toy that I've got any interest in is Voyager Shockwave.

    Considering that I don't like the movie aesthetic, that they interest me at all is really saying something.

    Adding articulation to legends, which it appears as though has been done for this line, is pure win.
    Micromasters, Legends, Scouts and Deluxes are my favorite size classes. My only complaint was articulation. Seeing elbows, knees and ball-joints galore on these new figures is a dream come true for me.
    I will unashamedly buy each and every Cyberverse figure I find, some in multiples.
    Then a Fort Max, after I recover from the inevitable kidney-donation surgery.

    I honestly hope beyond hope that there will be a Commander-class Shockwave eventually.

    Looking at the official pictures he's deffinately way better. If his tail-fins and wings could fold up slightly he'd be perfect. Plus, real, useful articulation!
