    What's up?

    Just wondering, will they make any legends/cyberverse toys for the AOE line? I'd imagine it will be difficult due to the awkward designs. Or will they make any at all?

    Also, does anyone here like the legends/cyberverse figures? I think they're neat! I only have 17 figures so far, it's hard to find any where I live now. Do you have any? What do you think about them?

    None are planned, at all. They were to be replaced with all that junk you see for kids on shelves.

    I like the legends and cyberverse lines. It's a much more kid friendly part of my collection that I don't worry about getting broken nearly as much. That and they can be pretty cool little figures to have.

    This exact topic was asked and discussed a few days ago,

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-toy-discussion/994447-transformers-cyberverse-aoe.html

    From what I gather the old Legion/Commander price point figures has been replaced with the larger One Step Transformers, which is a bloody shame because I'm sure there's room for Cyberverse and One Steps, in the same way there was space for Legends (old naming convention) and Activators during Animated and ROTF.

    And yes, I'm a big old fan of Cyberverse, I love them. I bought them along with the bigger figures, but somewhere alone the line (in DOTM) the bigger figures got quite crappy and the smaller figures were awesome, so I ended up collecting all the Cyberverse and very few 'mainline' TF's.

    So I'm a bit gutted they're stopping this line really. There are people who say these new Generations Legends are a continuation of these (and I suppose they are) but as somebody that's collected these since TF:Cybertron in 2005, they're really not the same.

    :( 

    There's also a big old Cyberverse appreciation thread, join in the discussion there!

    Edit
    Whups, I was meant to link to that Cyberverse thread, but pasted the wrong link. Cha Chi got me covered though.

    Yeah, the only Legends/Cyberverse toys being released alongside Age of Extinction are redecoes.

    Firstly, there's six G1-themed redecoes of Universe, Reveal the Shield and Beast Hunters moulds, available in dollar store-type places in the US and mass-retail elsewhere:

    Then there's a selection of AOE-themed Legends toys that are Walmart-exclusive in the US, and have appeared in dollar stores overseas. They're redecoes of ROTF, DOTM, Prime, and Beast Hunters moulds:

    I'm disappointed that they're not carrying on with this toy line.
