    It could be worse… They could be the dreaded Bot-Bots. Now those truly are the worst!

    Are these Sharkticons different from the \"deluxe\" sized version?  Any official pics of them?  They might also be good for troop building.

    That's not a UPC though. It's an EAN. Apparently Hasbro is going to replace UPCs with EANs entirely for easier international compatibility.

    How do you know?

    Smaller, different transformation...

    These sets literally just showed up out of nowhere. If there were official pics available, they would have hardly been the surprise they are right now.

    Come on... More Cyberverse toys!

    Again, I'm buying this because it's cool; but STOP THIS! I NEED SAVINGS FOR EARTHRISE!

    ;) 

    Thought this might be useful: (If anyone wants this later on I have it backed up on my files.)
    @Nevermore has a complete list for Cyberverse in his UPC thread.

    I'm starting to think the Cybertronian Villains subline is Target exclusive.

    just ignore him. He’s a troll. He’s not here to make conversations or have debates. He comes in, posts his toxicity about how hasbro doesn’t love him and it’s theirs and governments fault he can afford toys, leaves and waits for other sites to post the same news and say the same thing and leaves.

    True for those who want it.

    But would it have made more sense if Hasbro had swapped that Hotrod repaint with the Quintesson who's stuck in that other set with 2 undesirable figures?

    Well younger kids appreciate quality figures as well. people on this site are reminded constantly that its not just adult collectors grabbing Generations figures and it's also why more of them are asking for video games and Cell phones instead of basic toys.

    Prediction: Long awaited Allicon with Windblade, OP and Bee repaints for $40.00

    I absolutely WANT those sharkticons.
    The Hotrod I can love without.
    I wish they made a pack with just the 3 sharkticons or instead of HOTROD, 3 more sharkticons.

    Me too, but Hasbro does that so we end up with those bad figures.

    These are adorable, tiny Botbot sized transforning articulated Sharkticons? Awesome! But I do wish the OP would have bought them to post photos...
    Edit: ah I see someone else did. Hey mods, mind adding the unpacked photos to the news blurb?
    I guess now we have proof of ehat I always knew - you have no heart. No effin' way any being with feelings would NOT find tiny transforming baby sharkticons adorable.

    I actually think that black repaint stealth Hot Rod looks rad.

    Until proven otherwise, I'll subscribe to the theory that these are definitely Tiny Turbo Changers molds. The aesthetic is dead on with those.

    Either they'll sell a single packed version in a future wave (if they haven't already, haven't been keeping up with those), or they decided to use the mold on the Cyberverse for another reason. Maybe get people hooked on those as well.
