    Our very own @ORIO found this guy at Target in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He also found his wave partner Gnaw/Sharkticon (Not pictured)

    Neat.

    I wonder how well these sell, given the fairly lukewarm response I see on here.

    Deadlock seems like a character aimed at hardcore TF fans (he's not in any of the cartoons, to my knowledge), but the fact that he's being released like this (and not as a Generations toy) is going to rub a lot of people the wrong way, me thinks! :eek: 

    If kids are buying, that's amazing! I get the feeling it's too hard to make a successful cartoon that gets kids to buy toys (these days). Hasbro should work on a strong console game again. I loved the WfC/FoC toy line (and games)! :thumb

    I wanted Gnaw until I saw the video review. This line is pure shit. "But they're aimed at kids". Do kids actually prefer this over Generations?:confused:

    This forum frequently forgets it's far from representative. Look at how it responded to CW despite the line selling well enough to come back for PotP *and* herald the new wave of cross compatibility between price points.

    Well now. I certainly wasn't expecting to see Deadlock!

    @Aimless Misfire Its not that its being aimed at kids, that is the issue. This is a brand for kids and kids can have good toys. Its just that its riddled with QC problems, while parents are being overcharged, that is the issue.

    If kids get nothing but this aimed at them, they'll be trained to like it. Kids are smarter and these don't tend to sell much except to adult collectors. We all need to send a very expensive message to Hasbro that these aren't what our kids deserve.

    Wish we could go back to the days where the kids aimed toys were absolute quality like Duocons, Gravity Bots or even Bumper Battlers.

    I know I’ve seen heaps of kids with Cyberverse toys or buying Cyberverse toys but it’s time to face reality, kids actually hate them because we say they do.

    I know it responded to the many, many repaints negatively but overall I had the impression that it was well-received.

    He was released in Takara legends a few years ago. Perhaps they release a Decepticon first before a repaint as Autobot drift later In the story?

    As for console games , the market is more and more complicated and mobile games seems more popular (forged to fight)?

    Amazing, Target will stock this crap but not their exclusives.

    They're betting on parents not knowing what they're paying for when it comes to the poor quality of these Cyber-verse figures.

    Ew gross, it’s just drift with a Decepticon symbol. He’s supposed to have a totally different body and colors, right?

    Found this wave and picked up Gnaw at Target this morning, so they’re at least as far as Idaho. Of note is that he didn’t ring up at the register and they had to enter the price manually.

    I found Gnaw here in Nor Cal. But it wouldnt ring up. So the cashier entered in the price manually.
