    The thing was already major "meh", and this didn't help at all. Oh well, I think it would be great for kids though.

    The thread title is misleading, this isn't a commercial.

    But man, this guy sounds so uninterested in the toy. :lol

    My last few times at Target I've picked this thing up and considered it... but as much as i like Cyberverse, I just can't pull the trigger on this one. It's big, but it's ugly, and definitely falls into the "non-essentials" category. The only reason I can come up with to buy it is that it would encourage the creation of other (better) basebots.

    Is it just me, or are those "battle sounds" just radio static?

    I got it just to store my cyber verse autobots and their weapons. You can cram 2 figs in the leg compartments and the 3 commanders (not including ultra Magnus) across the top (bulkhead, prime, and ironhide). I keep wheeljack in his "play set"

    I think radicons might get more out of it due to the head and accessories than your average buyer.

    That's insulting to Go-Bots! At least the Go-Bots one turned into a jet and 4 mech suits. The Optimus Maximus just lays down. Over 20 years later and Gobots was SUPERIOR!

    BTW - Did you know Cyberverse figures fit inside Go-Bot Power Suits?

    This would have been better as metroplex.

    Hideous brick. Seriously haven't we moved on from this type of dreck by now?

    (Am I the only one that thinks the whole thing looks like a "parts tree" from a model car kit?)

    My son and I saw this at Target the other day. We looked at each other and laughed so hard. Then we looked up and saw FOC Shockwave! Awesome!!!!
