    Cyberverse looks wildly out of place next to those two. They should’ve used Cyberverse for the My Little Pony crossover and War for Cybertron for this.

    I remember seeing those other toys while I was in Japan. They look cool definitely more Brave influenced them TF but they would not look out of place in say the 2000's RID line. As for the game clearly not aimed at me so... yeah good luck I guess to anyone who likes this style of game play.

    Okay, I've just googled Earth Granner, and those toys look bad-ass.
    Normal cars that combine(?) with animal-like vehicles that combine AGAIN into, essentially, Gundam-ified Beast Wars guys, complete with animal parts.

    NO IDEA what the articulation or plastic quality is like, but on pure aesthetics, I'm impressed.

    Cyberverse could NEVER.

    Man I wish there was a new Transformers anime.

    Yeah why didn't Takara work out something with IDW for a crossover they have no say in?

    This is a cool idea, too bad they aren't crossing over with a good piece of TF media.

    The Cyberverse designs look pathetically amateur and lame compared to those awesome Brave-style robos. Earth Granner especially is so badass.

    Takara is selling the Siege figures aren't they? Why not use that line for the cross promotion?

    Cyberverse probably better matches the age demographics these other toys are aimed at, though.

    Yeah, you're on point on that one, in the other side of the spectrum, it's basically a "collectors focused" like that has a Netflix mini-series. And the tone isn't in the variant side. Yeah, it has it's flashy moments but it's kinda gritter that the former.

    I'm currently making a video review for this; but I have to tell you that the articulation is top notch; though Leo cheetah lacking a bit on shoulder articulation and have no waist articulation. And the materials used are very good; definitely able to withstand rough handling of kids.

    it's quite heavy and the best of all are all the voice over crammed on the tiny card that will change depends on where you put him.

    I also have a shinkanlion; while I like the toys; it's a shame the toys doesn't feature anyleg articulation beside the knee. Bug the hell out of me
