    I received the opportunity to check out some upcoming Transformers: Cyberverse content and toys today.

    Dinobots carry a nice new design aesthetic. In dino mode, they are more mechanical than animal-looking (you guys get what I'm talking about - Zords from Power Rangers). Swoop's dino head even has a human-sized fighter jet cockpit. BUT, G1 influence is through the roof. We can clearly tell where the inspiration came from.

    This is even more so obvious from their robot modes. The colors, the look... is straight-up G1.

    I saw the 'XXXXXXX & Combine' toys. The line is actually called 'Dinobots Unite'.

    Never guessed for a moment that RID 2015 Crash Combiners would make a comeback. One main character and one Dinobot come in the package. They have a simple 7-step back and forth transformation each (altmode <-> robot mode). "Crash" them together in altmode to get them combined. A new hybrid head pops up. This hybrid head has features of both characters which comes in the same packaging.

    This is straight-up Crash Combiners. In fact, Cyberverse Dinobots Unite Bumblebee is a retool of the RID Crash Combiner Bumblebee. Even the packaging has some Crash Combiner looks. Speaking of which, the packaging is Yellow and Green with a jungle motif.

    Unlike Crash Combiners, Dinobots Unite line comes with an additional weapon for the combined mode. But the weapon can be held by the Dinobot robot mode and is an actual body part from the dinosaur mode. It's detachable when transforming.

    Sadly, did not see Volcanicus. I'm guessing his toy will be more like RID 2015 Combiner Force UltraBee or Menasor.

    Toys are planned for August. Perhaps the new season too.

    Cyberverse had its own style; it doesn't need to follow a forty year old cartoon to be good!

    Its own style...while homaging dozens of G1 characters, concepts, plot points...

    It has ALWAYS been a heavily G1 inspired series. A Modern G1 Remix, if you will. This complaint is just asinine.

    Did it really, though? Hasn't the whole show just been Brand Synergy: the Animated Series?

    Out of all the toys you got to see, which (if any) are you looking forward to the most? I’m waiting for pics of the Dinobots Unite stuff myself. Anything that combines automatically has my interest.

    Can you confirm if these new combiners can be mixed & matched with the RID2015 Crash Combiners, or no? I'd love to combine Cyberverse combiner Grimlock (I'd assume he's getting made seeing Slug & Swoop, anyway) on the top with RID2015 Grimlock on the bottom...

    Yeah, it really didn't. It just used G1 stuff in creative ways. All we can do is hope the same goes for the Dinobots. Considering they all combine with other characters, including Decepticons, it looks to be the case, assuming the show reflects the toy line.

    Snarl and Sludge will most likely have their RBA voices. So it makes me wonder who'll be voicing Swoop and Slug. Marc Thompson i could probably see doing Slug, Swoop i'm not sure, I'd probably say Billy Bob Thompson but he's already Sludge.

    I went on the official transformers YouTube channel and saw something that could be easily missed but it said that the possible cyberverse special could be coming in fall (November) rather than this summer on Netflix. Which I guess makes sense cause we are getting WFC:Kingdom in July.

    Saw more stuff.

    Main characters are turning into prehistoric creatures too.

    Cheetor is a Saber-toothed Tiger.

    I wonder if he's coming back to life, or if this is a toy-only thing.

    I'm not a huge fan of that idea o_O 

    But let's see how it turns out. I think that TM2 Cheetor did have a somehow prehistoric look. He surely had longer fangs then, so maybe this is the general idea.

    I do hope that he comes back. I could always use a second Cheetor toy :D

    Have they released any character models/images of these guys. The package art pic is neat, but I am looking for bot' mode images.

    Not much. We got a few Sludge images a week or two ago. We wait. And we wait.
