    They are perfect as Shockwave’s minions! Especially with wall-crawling action!

    And I know they’re not technically labeled as such, but the Gnaws in the Cyberverse set were clearly designed the same. 110AF36B-901E-43A5-AB37-43A22937A90D.jpeg

    So I managed to snag some series 5 singles from ToyWiz of all places for $3.99 each before they jacked the price up to $6.99 each. Any chance anyone here has a S5 Megatron, Arcee or Crankcase for sale? Looking to finish off that set before I start hunting for CV3.

    3 already?! Still looking for CV2 here... blind packs seem to be really poor on fresh stock in my area, there's an entire wave of Jurassic World I only saw ONCE too. (Worse, I need three of the 1x/case Chase Figure from that set for friends. :(  )

    I never saw anything past movie wave 4 in my area. I just resorted to ordering singles from an eBay seller routinely since they get cases when possible.

    My Movie 5's had to come from a buddy in Canada in a Jurassic-for-TF trade.

    Why isn’t there a Windblade in Tiny Turbo Changers Cyberverse? She was a main in the series!

    I’m hoping that there is a Series 4, which the Gnaw mold was for, but with the animated series ended I’m bummed that my chances are slim...

    found series 2 Cyberverse at Target over the weekend...got Soundwave, Shockwave, Acid Storm, Black Arachnia and Grimlock...

    they are fun toys that scratch that itch of wanting to fiddle with a transformer but not wanting to get involved in a deep transformation...

    other than Soundwave's arms not moving enough I think they're all pretty good...have to track down that Jetfire/Silverbolt mold now and hope series 3 comes out soon because it looks like a lot more unique molds are in that series...

    Where do you get these? None of the usual stores around me seem to carry them.

    Here around Seattle, Target and Fred Meyer (local Kroger brand) have Cyberverse series 1 and 2. Movieverse are long gone, and I haven't seen Cyberverse 3 anywhere in the US even though it seems to be dropping in Canada and the UK.

    I'll double check the local Targets. I'm looking to army build Skrapnel.

    Skrapnel is Series 3 IIRC... best bet is if you know anybody in Canada who owes you a favor. :)

    I'll take advantage of this thread being bumped to encourage anyone who has access to Series 4 to pm me.;)

    With some help from a friend in Toronto... Cyberverse Series 1-4 complete. It took him quite a bit of doing to complete Series 4 before shipping...
    [​IMG]
    Top row is Movie Series 5, spill-over from the entire other side of this case being the complete Movie line. Is there a Cyberverse Series 5 coming, or are TTC's toast?

    Not pictured, a Starscream I've picked up for repaint as Skywarp to complement Screamer and "Totally NOT Thundercracker."
