Transformers: Cyberverse Scout Class Wave 1 & 2 (Bumblebee, Grimlock, Megatron, Optimus Prime, Slipstream, Starscream, Windblade)

Every Cyberverse Scout Class toy sucks. They are absolute garbage due to having no actual vehicle modes.

Bumblebee

Bumblebee’s robot mode looks pretty good. He has pretty nice paint apps. His “vehicle mode” is a complete dumpster fire. He only half transforms.

Grimlock

As with Bumblebee, Grimlock’s robot mode is pretty good, but only his top half turns into a T-Rex and walks on his robot legs. WTF?

Megatron

I think I may vomit. Robot mode isn’t bad except that he has no fusion cannon. But his vehicle mode, my god. What crap. Basically his legs turn into treads…and that’s it.

Optimus Prime

Again, he’s not bad in robot mode, but that vehicle mode sucks.

Slipstream

Let’s ignore that Slipstream is the front of a jet with legs. His wings are supposed to spin. It’s his action feature. I get that, but they won’t stay in place at all as wings. What crap. Worse, Slipstream has the same head as Starscream. They couldn’t even be bothered to make a minor mold change. The only positive thing I can say, Slipstream’s paint apps are that the colors are pretty good.

Starscream

See my above comments about Slipstream.

Windblade

Another legged jet. Windblade does look pretty great in robot mode.

Overall: Complete shit.

Thanks for reading!

  1. These “transformations” used to be fan modes half-way between the official ones. Now that’s all they’ve got. Hasbro is probably saying they have more features than the non-transforming bricks they have also started selling.

    Half-way Transformers – Less, much less than meets the eye!
