Since 1986 Transformers fans has wanted an action figure of the Quintessons. The Five Faced Judges from the planet Quintessa would later be revealed to be the actual creators of the Transformers elevating their importance in cartoon canon. However, it would not be until the Energon years later before fans had a Quintesson-inspired figure released in the form of Alpha-Q, but even then it was not really the Five Faced Figure fans wanted.
The "Cyberverse" Deluxe Class figures have gone on sale online so of course I snapped them up! I kick off my reviews of this assortment with a look at Shockwave. Is he worth your time? Check out my review and gallery to find out!
As a follow up to his in box photos of the Cyberverse Deluxe Class figures, fellow fan Kenneth Y. was kind enough to snap some quick photos of Optimus Prime out of package! These photos show off the figure's various features including a Matrix inside the chest and the use of his "Blast Effect". There is also a surprising amount of articulation on this figure allowing for some really dynamic poses!
Back in October Hasbro revealed a new sub-line of the Cyberverse toy line: Deluxe Class figures! Unlike most of the line which is heavily gimmick focused, these figures would be more traditional Transformers figures with a coherent robot mode and vehicle mode and even Blast Effects! Even cooler? Across two waves of eight figures fans can collect pieces to assemble a non-transforming Maccadam figure!
Combining with a satellite, Shockwave armors up to battle the Autobots with heightened strength and powers (and a fun "Energon" callback!). Check out my review and gallery of Spark Armor Shockwave from Cyberverse!
