    Transformers Prime Cyberverse In Hand Pictures - Transformers News - TFW2005


    I managed to snag myself six of the nine available Transformers Prime Cyberverse toys today. They are some very cool small toys, very fun to play about with and transform. My thoughts on the six are as follows:

    Optimus Prime - Easily the weakest Commander of the set, I really don't like the leg design. He's saved by an interesting transformation though involving his legs becoming the front and back sections of his truck mode, his shoulders similarly form both the nose of the truck and also the roof. Very good poseability, just let down a bit by those legs.

    Megatron - stunning. Very poseable, and dead on to the show. The clear purple really enhances the body design and breaks up the gray nicely. I have him stood next to my monitor as I write this.

    Starscream - excellent, though not as good as Megatron. The clear red on the robot mode is barely noticeable above and beyond his normal deco, he does have some vehicle mode parts in robot mode (his jet mode nose is his arms) but these don't spoil the look much. He's extremely hard to stand up though due to his thin legs, small feet and comparatively bulky upper body.

    Bumblebee - he's not the most poseable or the most detailed of paint jobs, but he is very endearing. The head sculpt is spot on to the show, the vehicle mode looks good, all in all, he is a perfect budget priced version of 'Bee.

    Ratchet - his look in both modes is spot on, he's got the boxy bulk that Ratchet is known for. Articulated knees and his scalpel accessory means he's able to strike a few good action poses, though like all three Legions I own so far, he lacks elbows.

    Vehicon - the stand out of the three. He's got the same level of poseability as Ratchet, but looks even more awesome in both modes. It's probably down to personal preference at the end of the day - Ratchet's robot mode is less impeded by vehicle mode parts, while the Vehicon has that simple, sleek yet menacing feel, even at only a couple of inches tall.



    All in all, I heartily recommend the Cyberverse series to any who are interested. They offer a cheap and inexpensive way to build up your Transformers Prime cast in toy form.

    Outstanding! I may actually get away with just Cyberverse for TF : Prime!



    Nah, who am I kidding? They do look great though!

    That starscream is a thing of beauty. He's surprisingly on model for something that small and his painted face is a really nice detail. Megatron looks surprisingly fun.

    Hmmm.....if I didn't know any better, I would say that Hasbro is considering scale in the Prime Cyberverse figures.....but we all know that not to be true :lol 

    Very nice indeed :D

    Wow, Hasbro, you've gotten my attention again! It's amazing what the Prime aesthetic does to give personality to such simple sculpts! Terrific!

    Megatrons alt mode looks miss-transformed. The two peices sticking up on either side of Megatrons head look like they should be able to fold down around him.

    Either way Deluxe Megatrons alt mode is still better in my opinion

    These look good. The commanders at least look closer to the Scouts- I'd hoped that class would be, than the legends+ we ended up getting.

    So are the clear weapons on these supposed to interact with the light up feature of the bases and voyagers then? - the weapons seem to have connection points that aren't being used for anything.

    I think that's the intention. Not a huge fan of the idea myself, but I may like it when I see it in person.

    They can also be used to peg the weapons together, if you are so inclined.

    They don't. See where you are coming from, but they only fold down to the sides, where the legs are pegged in. No other mobility in them unfortunately.

    Commander Prime is AWESOME, such a great figure at a small size. Brilliant articulation, some awesome poses available and a nice looking alt mode :D 

    Commander Bulkhead is AWESOME too. Get him if you get the chance :D

    Just opened my Cyberverse Starscream and Cliffjumper. Great little versions of the characters. Opening Ratchet and Optimus next. And i don't know if it's just mine, but Ratchet doesn't seem to have any eyes painted on. The packaging picture on the back cleary shows he's suppose to have blue eyes.
