The Transformers Cybertron line gave of some great figures. Arguably, one of the best Leader Optimus Prime molds ever made came from the Cybertron toy line.
Capturing all the essential Prime elements, its BIG, well articulated, has a great robot mode, a few alternate modes, and armed to the teeth.
What a better figure to throw back to in this review from our very own forums member TMan978 giving us the CHILL Review.
See how this guy compares to more recent Combiner Wars toys and the many features of the Leader class figure.
Skipping the Energon series altogether, Hasbro recently introduced the Cybertron TV series onto DVD. Squeezing 7 DVDs into one set is quite the feat, but can this set stand on it's own without the lure of special features or behind the scenes looks? Get a look at the set and it's contents by reading the review here.
In the G1 days, Smokescreen was aptly named because he could put out a smoke camoflauge. His alt mode was a 4th generation Nissan Fairlady Z (or ZX for the americana), more specifically the early 80s 280ZX with the snubnose. He disappeared for awhile, then reappeared in Armada as a crane truck. This didn't seem fitting at all and you have to still wonder how that happened. There were rumors that he was making a return in Cybertron having his alt form as a sports car. However, the 11th hour had his mold name changed to Crosswise. Why is anyone's guess. Whether they planned this from the start or bowed to fandom complaints, Crosswise has been repainted and is now issued as Smokescreen. Read More
While Scourge was a Unicron cronie back in G1, lately Scourge has taken on a different role. Mainly, he has become Optimus Prime's evil side in most cases. Also known as Nemesis Prime in some of the other lines, Scourge has been the polar opposite of Prime made to confront and destroy Prime. However, Scourge had a different role this time. He is now a rogue Prime that defected to the Jungle Planet and proceeded to overrule it. However, his fighting with the Autobots and subsequent abandon into deep space has altered his form and made him a very cold being in more ways than one. Read More
t has been a wild ride thru the Cybertron line. This has been one of the most impressive figure lines in the TF universe in ages. Lots of great homeages, excellent features and some surprising character upgrades have kept this line very interesting indeed. Of course, with time all good things must come to a close. Cybertron is very near the end of it's product line. While there are no new continuums in the works, there are 2 great classic lines hoping to fill the gap. This review is for the very last original mold to be released for Cybertron. Quickmix is the gentle yet loyal vice commander for Gigantian. He serves as Metroplex's second-in-command and confidant.

First off, I would like to point out that this figure's occasional mis-assembly will not play a part in this review. I can't review something that doesn't happen to every figure. Now then, this figure has got it all, period. It's Optimus Prime's best Deluxe figure mold with a paint scheme similar to the recently released Galaxy Force Optimus Prime which is this figure's Leader class counterpart. This amalgamation actually comes out looking very impressive. Read More
Well, this guy's gotten some pretty negative views lately so I figured I'd prove the masses wrong. As a first word... buy this figure! People have stated that he's too small to be Unicron which is partially true, but believe me this guy's price is right. You will definitely be satisfied with him. Read More
Menasor is an armored drilling machine. On either side of the armored shovel is a drill. On the left, he has a photonic disruptor drill. There is a thumbwheel on the bottom which, when Menasor is rolled on the ground, will cause this drill to spin. The wheel actually works very well in doing it's purpose, unlike past attempts to cause rolling action with previous figures. On the right is a wrecker drill. This drill remains stationairy when the vehicle is rolled, but does serve a purpose later on. The colors are pretty strange. Read More
Marvel Comics introduced Primus, the creator and protectorate of all Transformers who laid in suspended animation until the destined battle between him and Unicron was at hand. In 2002, the Armada series brought fans Unicron after 15yrs of patient waiting. Now, in 2006, the Cybertron series brings us the much anticipated second half of the eternal Good vs Evil struggle... Primus.. Read More
For my first review I decided to review the brand new Giant Planet Mini-con Team which just arrived with me recently. The team comes in the standard Cybertron packaging with a large Decepticon logo on the back instead of the Mini-con logo. So we are looking at some little guys to accompany Menasor and Heavyload.

As we start to approach the end of the Cybertron line (just 3 more new figures to go), there have been a myriad of repaints. Probably one of the more anticipated repaints is of Nemesis Breaker. When Megatron reappeared, the dark aura of Unicron's armor enveloped Leobreaker, absorbed his darker side and formatted it into his evil twin, Nemesis Breaker. Read More
Since these figures are essentially repaints of past minicons, I will cut right to the chase on this review. Instead of being packaged in a 3pk as minicons normally are, these figures come packaged as a VS set pitting one against the other. Following is a breakdown of the names and related factions to which the belong: Read More
While the Legends class figures have not been held high on a pedestal, they have been a good value since they were priced relatively low ($3.50 retail). However, with the release of the Wave 3 figures, the price has risen to $4.50 retail. Are the newest figures more impressive to justify such a hike? Read More
Metroplex was a towering mass of Autobot back in the G1 era. The 2nd of the MegaFormers (preceded by Omega Supreme), Metroplex was larger than even the combined Gestalts and had the price to match. Eventually, even Metroplex was outsized by FortMax and Scorponok. He then went into retirement until now. For the Cybertron universe, Metroplex is the leader of the lost planet of Gigantian.

Cybertron Menasor! Moledive! I was shocked to find it in my local toy shop, and immediately picked the sucker up, plunked down the $30 and brought him home. I had picked up a Beast Wars 10th Anniversary Cheetor as well, and I opened him up first. I never bought Beast Wars before, and this was a surprisingly good figure, so I was in a good mood when I started to open Menasor. That was about to change... Read More
