    Spotted Cyberverse Hammerbyte today while at work and I guess he is new. I didnt buy him but he does look interesting. Located in Walmart Waverly IIowa.also accompanied by a Starscream that didnt look like the original. No pic of him

    Well, my Target orders for Arcee and Thunderhowl both updated to deliver next week, so maybe the expected release dates are off a bit.

    Can someone tell me whats the difference between warrior class and Deluxe class in this line ?

    They look to be the same size to me . Is that correct ?

    What are the differences ?

    I cannot find this guy on Amazon at all.

    Is he available on Amazon ?

    In Iowa no less.

    I would say the deluxes are the standard Cyberverse representatives of the charecters. Nice figures and decently articulation from my understanding. Collector friendly. Currently have the build a figure.
    Warrior class are the gimmicky figures. Articulation hampered. Really a mixed bag, generally aimed at the kiddos.

    Hoping he has at least basic articulation abd its not hampered by the gimmick. I like to support new or obscure characters so I may get him.

    ...what the hell is going on with this line?!?

    Warriors are $15; Deluxes are 20. Warriors are generally "gimmick" figures with some kind of effect. The Deluxes come with a piece of MacAdam as a "Build A Figure."

    online preorders for this series have been somewhat unpredictable; Amazon might update their lists at some point...

    so they are both the same size ? I kinda want to buy Hammerbyte for my kid but if its not going to scale well with the thunderhowl figure he is not going to want it.

    Looking at both versions of Megatron and Shockwave, they appear to be the same height.

    This guy should be with Cybertronian Starscream (already mentioned) and Cybertronian Optimus.

    Only Cybertronian Starscream. Cybertronian Optimus Prime is the wave after that.

    The file names for the CG renders labeled him as "Fall 20 WV3".

    Those were actual figures at Tot Fair, so it's possible they're already made and ready to ship.

    I\'m really wondering what this means for figures like Cyberverse Whirl and Bludgeon. Are they ever going to make it into the wild at large?

    Found him at my local Walmart today. My Walmart is always way behind so it was a nice surprise to find this. Not a bad figure, not great but nice for what it is.
