I have not bought a lot of Cyberverse but here are the Cyberverse toys I've had and thoughts on the quality:
1) Deluxe Windblade from year 1 - Well designed but with very thin, very light and very fragile feeling plastic. It's designed as good as any modern TF toy but holding it feels like holding a KO.
2) Deluxe Acidstorm year 1 - Felt slightly more substantial than Windblade but still "lighter/cheaper" than a usual TF. Gimmick did not get in the way but also did not work very well (spring was so tight it spun so fast and for such a short burst the human eye couldn't actually see the blades in the wings come out)
- Years Pass -
- I consider buying Target exclusive Deluxe Slipstream but never quite get around to it. -
3) Ultra Alpha Trion- Very little poseability just a small bit in the arms, but he is solid and the robot mode actually looks the most like G1 Cartoon Alpha Trion of any toy ever, so he works fine for standing by Orion and the Female Autobots on my shelf.
4) Ultra Clobber - She's a wonderful character in the show so I had to get her. Decent size. Good robot mode likeness. Her transformation is a bit counter-intuitive and awkward and her plastic feels a hair thinner and lighter than I'd like. Not as badly as the first Cyberverse toys though. Happy having her in bot mode. Love having her posed with the other ladies on my shelf.
5) Ultra Rack'n'Ruin. Cool. Simple. May never transform him again, but don't care. Not much else to say really, just still jazzed to have a toy of him in any form.
6) Hammerbyte season 3 - Awesome. Great in both modes, poseable, fun gimmick, feels solid and like a TF basic we could have gotten in the Armada through RiD2 era. Kind of my new platonic ideal of a transformer for kids. He's really pretty perfect.
7) 1-step Whirl - Is actually 5-Step Whirl but is a fun little toy. Solid, cute, doesn't feel fragile despite his size and thinness. If you don't mind shoulders being the only articulation (I don't, grew up on G1) he is pretty cool
8) 1-step Repugnus (and Repugnus revenge multipack later) - Neat. An ACTUAL one step transformation. And kind of a cool magic trick of one too. Ball-Joint shoulders and elbows. I recommend him just for the cute little monster mode.
9) Deluxe Arcee with Maccadam parts - Super pretty colors. Nice robot sculpt. Cute car mode. My daughter fell in love with her instantly. Backpack is big, but feels more natural and aesthetically pleasing than the WFC fig. She's the Arcee toy I'd recommend before any other ever made.
10) Ultra Thunderhowl - reviewed him above. On the whole he's got a couple nitpicky bits but he FEELS 100% like a regular modern deluxe figure and a fun one. So yay on that. I recommend him as probably the best toy in his Size Class Cyberverse has done.
-ZacWilliam, I had forgotten about a third of those when I started typing or I might not have started, but oh well. Other than the first 2 I'm pretty happy with the CV toys I own and the last handful have been as pleasing as anything in Generations and with a modicum more creativity and fun on the whole.
