    Grimlock doesn't look like a TF toy tbh. He looks like he's a robo dino from a completely different brand.

    Grimlock looks pretty awful, imo, though I dig the garbage truck. I think I'd prefer Wreck-gar with that set-up, though! :) 

    Still hatin' Shockwave's stupid crab mode. :rolleyes2 

    Just Ratchet for me. :)  I dig the small guys - they're very much like Legends class toys!

    $25 here in the States.

    Ordered Ratchet on Amazon (even if he’s too small, he’s still 10 times better than the OTHER CYB Ratchet). Now if only Grimlock would go up for order on Amazon..

    WHAT? That is so not worth it, lol.

    Then again, they'll probably be on clearance.

    I don\'t know about Grimlock, frankly I miss Wreck-Garr and seeing a garabge truck for Grimlock really isnt doing me any favors.

    Ratchet is a lost cause at this point,  the glossy images looked fine, but with no face paint it really drops the figure down in quality, not that Cyberverse is known for its high class toys, I don\'t plan on getting this one either.

    And last but certainly not least,  Shockwave! I really liked both his warrior and Ultra class figure, I have no words for the one step changer. And it seems that in the Cyberverse line Shockwave has gotten some preyty good toys. All are well articulated and look show acurate enough. And then there is this, when I fitst saw the glossy Images I though that they were re-using the warrior class mold. But seing the official images, its clearly not. He seems to be well articulated enough, and the spark armor does bare a very obvious resemblance to Shockblast. And out of all the Spark armors we got, I think the satelite fits Shockwave the best. Unlike some other characters like Ratchet with a jet-ski! I definitley will be picking this guy up. Though the price is a bit lackluster and feels a bit of a rip-off for a scout class and some armor.

    1/3 for these guys

    Worst: Ratchet
    Middle: Grimlock
    Best: Shockwave

    I will likely pick up the whole wave here, but agree that the larger ones (e.g. Optimus/Megs and now Grimlock) don't quite feel like they are $25...then again the $15-$17 deluxes have less basic articulation compared to this class of figures.

    Grimlock looks goofy, but works for me.

    Ugh. My Target had one Ratchet left and I got a defect! The pin isn’t going through the neckpiece or headflap so he can’t even transform. I can’t even push the pin out because it doesn’t go all the way though.

    Edit: managed to easily slide the pin out using needlenose pliers. He’s all fixed now. Too bad his helmet isn’t white like on the package....

    These battle class figures are quite a mixed bag. Jetfire and Starscream are not my cup of tea, however Sky byte, Prowl and Ratchet are great. Prowl definitely has the best armor imo.
    I know it’s wishful thinking but I’d kill for another wave of these under the Bumblebee cyberverse adventure banner. Maybe battle class Deadend, Chromia and Wheeljack?

    The Battle Class Shockwave is cool too. I love his armor/satellite.

    So I took a crack at painting Ratchet. I don’t usually do this but it was quite plain out the box. He also works quite well for my scale, can’t wait to get my hands on that deluxe Prime 52C87982-B686-4AA6-8073-EF1E629FC1B9.jpeg FE3236A4-1608-423E-AA92-7DE91BF5530F.jpeg 181CBAA7-B5CE-44A8-99FC-0B046E3035BC.jpeg
