    I picked em up. It's alright for what they are. It's not really likely we'll see these color schemes on repugnus again, and the lil guys are cute. I'm also of the mind that if you even remotely want exclusives that are out right now, you should buy them. I have a feeling exclusive, limited items will be expensive in the years to come due to the lockdown.

    And if anything, McDonald's toys in the 90's atleast had some toys with actual functioning joints, McDonalds toys nowadays are just statues by this point. You'd be lucky to have at least a waist swivel.

    That's a side effect of having to keep the overall Happy Meal cost down as costs of making the toys go up.

    It's the same thing going on with retail toys.

    Just giving a heads up to everyone.  Picked up the Cyberverse Arcee the other day at a Walmart in New Mexico.  So they should be showing up in your areas soon.

    Then why post this in a thread about a completely different toy instead of the thread about that very figure being out at US retail?

    I love the bright G2ish colors. If they made this set in the Titans Return molds I would happily buy a set !

    Why is Repugnus a Decepticon?

    These are adorable. Just wish the tiny ones had moveable arms. Odd that they have molded con symbols, despite how Repugnus has always been an autobot...
    That's just being accurate to the G1 toy... who also had an unpainted face.
    Besides, the beast mode faces are painted which is good enough.
    No idea. He and the "bugs" and Energon Masters had no faction insignias in the toon.
    Target still has them both.

    There\'s been 2 sets at one Target here for about a week but suprisingly no ones biting. 

    I keep eyeballing them everytime I go , getting more & more tempted , especially after all the other failed hunts.

    I'd pick this up for the sheer WTF factor.

    Something I find kind of odd is that in the cartoon these guys actually mass shift when they transform so the little figures are the correct size for beast mode while the larger figures are the correct size for robot mode.

    Something else odd about these guys is that the little guys all have Decepticon insignias molded into their chests and most of these figures are marked as Decepticons... but Repugnus is an Autobot... One of those little guys does match the color scheme of the larger Repugnus figure and no one thought to mold them with Autobot Insignias? Especially since the smaller "Bugs" in the cartoon were Autobots. It was the larger robots who were the Decepticons.

    Oddly none of them knew they could transform and were actually all the same species. So really the larger figures should all be Decepticons since you're more likely to display them in robot mode, while the smaller "bugs" should all be Autobots.

    I call them "Bugs" because that's what their beast modes were referred to as in the cartoon though they don't really look like bugs to me... I guess because of the pincers and the kind of bug eyes but it's not like they have six limbs.

    No dude, none of them were either Bots or Cons. They were unaligned. Also the beast modes were shorter but not smaller. That’s because like the toy, Repugnus basically folds in two for beast mode.

    Btw I love the name Pesticons. Now if we could get some Budabots for the full hungarian experience! ;) 

    Yeah I was looking for the Sharkticon set on ebay and only found expensive auctions, then my friend told me they are on Target and bought them for me.

    picked up at Target Colma today...Serramonte also had one...

    I wonder if they have any other Cyberverse mini-army builders they can capitalize on for another set...

    These things are really charming, the show is not my cup of tea but a lot of the toys are great
