  1. With Ultra Class Optimus Prime there is now at least one Prime for every price point in the Cyberverse line, with more to come. It's not the best figure but it's not bad either, it's just there. My one major complaint is that the legs activate the action feature, which results in a very long cab if the shield isn't deployed. I can't give a solid yay or nay on this figure so the decision on purchasing is up to you.
  2. Nitro Class Dropkick is one of the best figures I've handled thus far in 2019. It's chunky and all the parts come together solidly in both modes making for a pleasurable transformation back and forth. I can't recommend this figure enough, but I also know many of you will pass on it just because it's been labeled a simplified figure.
  3. Prowl has always been one of my favorite characters so I was quite happy to see its inclusion in the Cyberverse line. The last time we got a One-Step figure was back during AOE and it was a curious addition which gave me hope for more "Classic" characters getting the One-Step treatment. Transformation for Prowl is simple but I feel the action attack would've benefited from a spring-loaded action like the transformation. Overall, this is one of my favorite One-Step figures we've gotten thus far in the Cyberverse line.
  4. This version of Optimus Prime features one of the smoothest Transformations I've experienced from a one-step figure. In robot mode, the figure looks very close to the animation model and I like the axe hand feature as it swivels independently and adds another level of play to the figure. Most are going to pass on this figure which is a shame since it's a fun little toy.
  5. To my surprise, Hasbro downscaled their Wave 1 Alpha Class Grimlock to a pocket-friendly size. Transformation is identical to the larger scaled figure but as to be expected, paint details are lost and the small dino arms are just molded in. Bravo Class Grimlock makes for the perfect desk toy and is fun to have.
  6. In what can be considered the natural evolution of One Step changers, Action Attackers feature the same simplified transformations but with the bonus of a weapon feature. Megatron features a firing Fusion cannon naturally and a robot mode that is closer to the show model than the previous One Step Megatron release. Ultimately there's nothing I can say that will steer most collectors towards this line but if you're looking to try something fun and simple, you can't go wrong with this line.
  7. For many collectors, the Authentics line is a series of figures that can be overlooked. That's a shame since a few of the figures tic many of the necessary boxes for collectors. Alpha Class Megatron, for example, features a nice amount of articulation and a transformation while simple is surprisingly involved. If you should happen to see Megs on a shelf it's definitely worth a pickup.
  8. Hot Rod is an ok figure but I think a lot of collectors and fans are going to find it lacking. The flame gimmick is ok but it really doesn't do much and doesn't look to have any offensive purpose. Transformation is fun but there isn't a stand out wow moment. I think only fans of the character will really want the toy.
  9. The Warrior Class from the Cyberverse line has been hit or miss, mostly miss. Soundwave benefits from a gimmick that isn't tied to a limb or something more intrusive. Yes it's still a simplified figure, and it doesn't have the articulation most collectors would want, but it's an overall good figure that I feel a lot of fans and collectors would be satisfied with.
  10. Ultra Class Slipstream is a good figure. While not overly articulated it does enough to have a fair amount of play value. The action gimmick is relatively unobtrusive and fun, while the transformation is surprisingly involved for a simplified figure. Overall I feel this is worth a look if not a purchase.
  11. There was once a time I really liked the Aerialbot mold, that time has passed. this figure was floppy, the wings are bent out of the box, and it's just not fun. I hope we get a better Darkwing down the line.
  12. The Evolution gimmick in the Power of the Primes line allowed for a basic Voyagerish figure to merge with some extra parts into a more powerful version of the character. The two figures that best utilized this gimmick were the first two released, Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime. Unfortunately, neither pulled the gimmick off as well as they could. Optimus is the better overall figure but the entire transformation process screams this was designed for Powermaster Optimus Prime, not Orion Pax. Rodimus embodies the gimmick perfectly but the transformation and resulting robot mode are lacking. Ultimately both figures are good, not great members of a somewhat lackluster line.
  13. The Speed Series from the Energon Igniters subline of the Bumblebee movie line, are the smallest figures in the line, close to the old Legion Class. Out of the five, the Volkswagon Bumblebee is the best but the Barricade/Hot Rod mold makes for a fun car that works well with the Igniter engine. If you can find these figures for retail or less pick one up.
  14. There's something barbaric to the idea of Weaponizers from the Siege line. I mean Cog's allies are meant to rip it apart and wear it as armor or weapons. It's also a lot of fun that opens up the playability of the COMBAT system to a whole other level. As a figure, Cog isn't the best and many other reviewers and collectors have mentioned that the joints are extra loose and Cog wants to come apart just a little too easily. With that said if you're nostalgic like I am for the G1 Fortress Maximus it's a really fun figure to have in an updated form.
  15. Sitting in the shadows of Sideswipe and Skytread, Hound is a surprisingly overlooked member of wave 1 from the Siege line. The figure does have a fiddly leg transformation that might turn some people off, but robot mode is stocky and solid. The solid build makes Hound an excellent choice to pair with the Weaponizer figures. While not a first choice, Hound is a solid figure and definitely worth a pick-up.
