Transformers Cyberverse Toys Get Armoured Up In 2019

Transformers Cyberverse Toys Get Armoured Up In 2019

While I’ve been loving Hasbro’s Transformers Cyberverse animated series on YouTube, the simplistic tie-in toy line, aimed at younger fans, hasn’t caught my fancy. That could change later that year, when the Cyberverse Transformers get vehicles that turn into awesome add-on armour.

As Transformers toy gimmicks go, Cyberverse’s new “Spark Armour” is pretty cool. Each of the new figures comes with a normal Transformer that converts from vehicle (or animal) to robot, along with a vehicle that can turn into a suit of high-tech armour. (Note: Australian pricing and availability isn’t known at this stage.)

Take Skybyte here, for example. A new version of one of my favourite Beast Wars era figures, he transforms from high-tech shark into a robot.

Skybyte comes with a drill tank. That drill tank comes apart and reassembles into armour, making a very cool figure even cooler.

Skybyte is one of four figures in the Spark Armour Battle Class series, along with Prowl, Jetfire and Starscream. Check out the slideshow below to see how the characters and their armour buddies come together.

Finally we have the big boss of the Spark Armour line, the $US49.99 ($70) Ark Power Optimus Prime. His vehicle mode is the standard semi truck, only he’s carrying a friend—a small-scale version of the Ark, the ship that carried the Autobots to Earth.

Image

With his Ark armour he’s a pretty plain Optimus robot. With the Ark armour, he’s a 30cm-tall beast.

Yeah, this is the year I’m going to start collecting Transformers Cyberverse toys. They got me, dammit.
