File this under "news catch up". This past summer it was revealed that the Cyberverse series would be releasing an Ultra Class version of the Dinobot Sludge! I'm posting the product info and pics of this figure mostly for posterity here (and for those who may have missed the official news). Enjoy!
Cyberverse launched in 2018 and three years later it looks like the line is intent on rolling forward with new releases, and that's a good thing for younger fans who are into the Transformers franchise. Hasbro is fairly low key about announcing any Cyberverse based product, so products tend to just trickle out online or suddenly appear on shelves with little to no notice. The latest example is Action Attackers Snarl who is part of the Dinobot themed series being released this year.
A few weeks ago a photo popped up online showing a previously unknown Ultra Class Ramjet figure from the Cyberverse toy line. While the character has appeared as a smaller figure, this was the first in a larger scale for the line. Now thanks to a listing on Amazon, we have official photos for this figure! There is no official description on Amazon and no listing exists on Hasbro's web site. This figure is priced at $20.99 on Amazon and is due to ship soon. For now, enjoy the photos below:
Discount chain Ollie's has posted its weekly flier and there are two Transformers items included! First is the (former) Target exclusive Seeker 4-Pack which would make fun "background" Seekers in your display. This set is $19.99 which is a lot cheaper than the original price of $49.99! For younger Transformers fans there are Rescue Bots figures on sale for $4.99 each (originally $9.99). If you have an Ollie's near you, go check it out!
The Buzzworthy Bumblebee line marches on with the posting of yet another 4-Pack of figures on Target.com! This time out it appears to be a repackaging of four previously released Cyberverse Warrior Class figures: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Starscream. This four pack is currently available for order and is priced at $52.99 (which is about right given that these figures are generally somewhere between $13-15 USD individually).
Cyberverse has not been a major force on toy store shelves in about a year now, but there are still new toys to come from the toy line a year after its final episode aired (a follow up movie is coming out at some point online however). One surprise reveal comes thanks to a Walmart listing for Deluxe Class Cheetor! The figure represents a bit of a departure from his animated appearance in the Cyberverse cartoon and I get some minor Beast Machines vibes from the swords. Other tha
The Cyberverse cartoon debuted in 2018, and while it got off to a slow start by the time the episodes finished in 2020 the show had elevated itself far beyond the scope of the first season. With the third season ended last year, it seemed the Cyberverse tale was over, but the toy line has continued to move forward on toy store shelves and now, it looks like fans will get another animated adventure set in that universe!
Earthrise comes to a close and Kingdom reigns supreme, bringing back the amazing world of the Beast Wars! Meanwhile Studio Series continues with sub-lines including Buzzworthy Bumblebee Target exclusives and Studio Series 86 based on the animated film from the 80's!
BWTF sponsor BigBadToyStore has posted surprise listings for the upcoming Deluxe Class Cyberverse Prowl, Soundwave and Starscream figures! Each figure is a more traditional Generations style figure using the Cyberverse aesthetic relying on transformation as the primary gimmick and even including "Blast Effect" pieces! The figures are up for pre-order now at $21.99 each with an arrival date of December 2020. Check out the product descriptions and images below from BBTS!
