Just before the start of Toy Fair, Gizmodo has the first official reveal of the toyline for the upcoming Transformers Cyberverse series. Broken down across Scout, Warrior, and Ultimate Classes at suggested price points from $8 to $30, we've got core characters from G1 represented in updated forms including of course Optimus, Bumblebee, Starscream, Megatron, as well as Shockwave and Grimlock. Each class has different special play features, and all are supposed to be designed with simple transformations. Click through to see the pictures now!
Scout Class Bumblebee
At $8 this kid-friendly version of Bee requires just six steps to go from robot to vehicle mode but still includes a Sting Shot Action Attack move with a blade that automatically pops out when triggered.
Warrior Class Starscream and Decepticon Shockwave
They’ll both be available in the Fall for $15, with Starscream requiring seven steps to transform, and Shockwave needing nine. With both figures the final transformation step triggers a unique attack move; the Wing Slice Action Attack for Starscream, and the Wave Cannon Action Attack for Shockwave.
Ultra Class Grimlock and Bumblebee
The Ultra Class version of Bee adds an extra transformation step over the Scout Class, but with a vastly improved vehicle mode, and an alternate Hive Swarm Action Attack move that’s triggered when the transformation is complete. Ultra Class Grimlock provides a little more of a challenge, with 14 steps needed to turn him into a T-rex, and a Rocket Roar Action Attack move. Both figures will sell for $20 when they arrive here on Earth in the fall.
Ultimate Class Optimus Prime and Megatron

The vehicle or “alt” versions of the $30 Ultimate Class Optimus Prime and Megatron figures seem to deviate most from the G1 toys. But the robot modes, which can be reached in 11 or eight steps, respectively, will be more familiar to kids of the ‘80s. Each toy also figures those animated attack modes, including the Fusion Mega Shot Action Attack for Megatron, and the Matrix Mega Shot Action Attack.
