Interesting. I don't know if this'll be a line that I'll be interested in collecting, but I am glad to see that they're finally doing new things ((thanks to the temptation of all that untapped cash from the Chinese market).
I'm interested to see whether this'll be some Transtector-like thing, or whether it's a Marvel Powemasters-type merging, or whether this figure's a reverse Pretender or something. Actual uncertainty! Exciting times.
I wonder if this'll eventually show up at B&M or Home Bargains or somewhere like that. It won't surprise me if it does - I recently found a whole load of Octonauts toys in Home Bargain in primarily Chinese-language packaging, which surprised me on a number of levels. So anything's likely...
Yeah, I keep forgetting about it, too. And it's surprising that no-one's decided to pick it up - maybe they think that no-one's interested? That said if it only consists of a handful of mold re-uses and this one, single new mold, then I guess it's not that surprising.
I actually really like that Optimus set. I'm starting to believe that Cyberverse Optimus's design might be my favorite of the G1 styled Optimi.
It's based on the Evergreen design, which I also really like. One of my favourite renderings of that is Kei Zama's depiction of Optimus Prime in his titular series, and that's the main reason I picked up the cheapo Prime from B&M. But Cyberverse is not bad either.
I'm guessing that those figures aren't transformable, and that you have to build each mode separately. Although at least that's how it looks to me.
Now that was unexpected. I'm still waiting for the toys to show up in B&M or something randomly, but I'm wondering if, as suggested by the comments under the tweet thread, that series actually ever aired at all. The fact that this is apparently a year old, but we've not seen anything else, maybe suggests that it hasn't...
