    I figured I'd start a thread for these toys, since they are starting to become an obsession for me.

    I never planned on buying many movie toys, mainly because I'm not a fan of the movie designs. However, I love the Cyberverse toys! Every time I go to Wal-Mart for groceries, I find a reason to pick up another one! But, they are great little toys - anyone else out there feel the same way?

    So far, I've got the following:

    Commanders
    Optimus Prime
    Sentinel Prime
    Powerglide
    Ironhide
    Megatron

    Legions
    Starscream
    Bumblebee
    Sideswipe

    I agree. I picked up a few yesterday. Ironhide is near perfect. I'll probably pick up Powerglide and Blackout, but I'm not too crazy about their feet.

    For me the Cyberverse line was going to be a cheaper alternative for my plastic crack habit. But I am really liking them these little guys more than I thought. I am really impressed with Blackout and Powerglide too.

    I got the small preview Optimus Prime as a freebie from TRU and Crankcase. I love them both such cool little figures! :D 

    Definitely going to get all of them.

    I've only bought the preview OP, but they seem pretty cool. I'll definitely buy Powerglide. But no Powerglide or Blackout around here, though! It's all OP, Megatron, Ironhide, and SP.

    Crowbar and Megs are my favorite out of what I've picked up so far. Really hope Crowbar gets a deluxe. He's a fantastic little figure with a great design.

    The new Legion/Legend class looks cool, and I'll probably grab a lot of those. The Commanders are a little off-putting, considering how awesome ROTF Scouts were. It seems really weird to me to see movie characters at that size class. They strike me as slightly bigger Legends figures. Blackout, maybe Powerglide, will be my only purchases.

    Oh, I forgot to mention, I used the wings from Cyberverse BB to make Optimus his jet-pack! It transforms into the jet he caries as a trailer by unpegging the tanks and plugging them into the gun! :D

    Those cyberverse commanders seem pretty overpriced considering how awesome scout figures are for the same price.

    Blackout is fantastic. Prime is pretty good, too, but not that exciting.

    Kinda want Ironhide and Sentinel, but it all depends.

    The commanderrs are only 8 bucks and just as good as recent scouts i think. Blackout and Powerglide are awesome so is prime. I fully intend on collecting the line because it just started and has such strong entries so far.

    Cyberverse is the best thing TFs has produced since Animated.

    I have megatron, sentenel prime, topspin, leadfoot, and crankcase. I love them all and will probably buy more of these than the mainline ones

    I think I'm going to wait and pick these up on the secondary market. These things look awesome and all, and while I'd love to pick up the entire Movie Line in one, unified-ish scale, 8 bucks for what is ultimately a slightly larger, more polished legends class figure is just too much for me.


    I will throw my support into the ring though and probably pick up Blackout, and possibly the Megatron w/Trailer.

    Originally I was just buying these guys to have a cheaper set of in-scale movie bots... but now they're like a miniature plastic-crack army to me. Every time I go to the store to pick something up I keep looking for a new Cyberverse fig, hoping there's something new for me to buy... They're amazing, like the stuff from the other movies, but now since they're their own little line, well, it just makes them that much better.

    I've gone rather batty with the Cyberverse stuff.
    So far:
    Commanders
    Prime
    Megatron
    Ironhide
    Blackout
    Powerglide
    Sentinel Prime
    Plus
    BB/carrier
    Megatron/tanker
    Prime/trailer
    SS/platform
    Basics
    Topspin
    Leadfoot
    Crankcase X3
    Crowbar X2
    Ratchet
    Barricade
    Sideswipe

    Passed on basic BB since I got the carrier set and the twins since I loathe them.

    All in all, I'm lost in the Cyberverse assortment. It's the most fun I've had with TF's in a long time.

    Seriousluy looking forward to the inevitible Commander Shockwave figure.
