    Pretty much the same sentiment.

    As I have come to understand from others. Evidently Hasbro doesn't really promote or do online reveals for whatever the current mainline (for kids) is, because they pretty much allow the cartoon to do that. So while most adult fans ignore the Cybewrverse line, and are constantly disappointed at the lack of WFC and SS on the shelves, there always seems to be plenty of Cyberverse. True *first* sightings could probably come weeks earlier, except that most adult fans don't care to report it. Unlike first sightings of SS and WFC, where I may nto see them in my area for weeks or months, there's not been a "new sighting" of a Cyberverse toy that I haven't already seen.

    Exactly. We can report a new sighting if users don't share pictures and information, and as you mentioned, Cyberverse toys are not usually reported as fast as other Transformers lines.

    A lot of it is that people aren't likely paying as close attention to Cyberverse. So they'll think it's already been spotted and just never think to mention it.

    Remember when Bee was the fun, scrappy, plucky underdog child identification character that attempted to use what passed for wits in 1980's children's programming to get the job done? Now I'm pretty sure his base mode is a muscle car and his altmode is John Cena in shoulder pads.

    All jokes aside, I'm glad Hasbro has learned that if you're going to have $50 one step transformation, the toy should be big enough to kill an intruder on impact.

    I reported that Roll & Change Optimus when I got him from Amazon about a week ago. Pretty fun toy. Have him posed like this at the moment on top of my PC tower. Because the box is open window, I can have him "popping" out. It's kind of cool.

    Oh funny, that was the post I saw that was in my head when I saw them in Eagan a few days ago and not bother to mention it.

    When looking at these pictures, something occurred to me: if Hasbro made a thick, chunky Bumblebee in the style of Powermaster Optimus or Beast Hunters Optimus, would anyone buy it? I might.
    Now I want a Toy Story-style movie where this happens.

    Thick and chunky is fabulous. That's one of the reasons I love the '87 brick-formers so much too.

    Yes, of course. For sightings, it's always better to post a thread here on tag any news team member. Thanks!

    I knew these were new, but I could\'ve sworn they\'ve been seen before. They were at my Walmart the other day and I figured you don\'t get lucky twice, right?

    I have a hard time believing theres a market for these (at this price point).

    Little Jimmy doesnt have $50.
    Most collectors wont shell 50 quid for these.

    Which just leaves poor grandma (Hasbro's favorite victim).

    My son doesnt get toys like this: he can't appreciate a $50 monstrosity more than a $10 figure. Also, it won't fit in my non-mansion! GASP! :lol

    That's five Authentics figures with better limb articulation!

    Yeah I'm really not understanding what makes these things worth $50 either. I can get a lot more for $100 then to smash two of these things together lol.

    I don't think I'm getting it. What am I missing?
