The Uncharted games are really good (at least the first 3 -- I never got around to playing 4 or the spinoff). They're very much Indiana Jones: The Video Game in spirit, that same pulp adventure stuff that Spielberg and Lucas were inspired by for Indy. But the best part of the PS4 remasters is they fix the incredibly terrible grenade controls for the first game.

I got Earthrise Cliffjumper last week. He's pretty cool, the way he transforms is clever but winds up with a classic look. He's pretty small height wise for a deluxe, but does come with his BFG from "More Than Meets the Eye". Equipping him with Ironworks is somewhat comical because of how much the Ironworks parts dwarf him.

Cyberverse Generations Deluxes of Hot Rod and Grimlock.
Grimlock suffers from what the old Deluxe Universe Galavtron suffered from. He should have been a larger size and he'd been perfect. As such, his legs pop off a little too easily. (And they're fiddly for transformation.) He's not fun to transform, but once he's there, his robot and dino modes are fun. And he comes with a crown!
Hot Rod's forearm has those super long pipes/doors, but he is one of those toys that once you have him in hand, he's actually kinda fun. He's got a real Nick Roche design to him. That said, he's SEVERELY lacking paint apps. Other than his hands, feet and the joints his arms are on... He's made entirely of red plastics and every color on him is painted. Even the wheels! If Reproplables ever did anything for Cyberverse, he'd be amazing.

Yeah, my Hot Rod also had a bit of a QC issue where one of the legs doesn't quite "pop" into place like the other, and will collapse in on itself if the weight is placed wrong. I do agree that his robot mode is a bit underwhelming in terms of visuals.
Grimlock has some issues with the transformation, but he's a lot more solid than Hot Rod in that regard.
I noticed that with my Hot Rod as well. But if you give a ever so slight bend to the knee, it stays locked then.
I did up the pain on his legs and it really helps a LOT...
When the lockdown lightens a bit (or I get impatient and just order from Amazon), I'm gonna pick up some orange acrylic paint and some fine brushes (lost mine during the move) and finish him up, hopefully looking like this.
In all honesty though, they're Cyberverse toys. They're not up there with your average Generations figure, but they're decent enough to use as an art reference for a project I'm doing soon.
Still would have liked them to be like the old NuRiD toys.

iacon45: And a larger scale Hardshell.
Sept 18, 2020 15:02:33 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Now we just need a Generations Knockout to go with it.
Sept 18, 2020 10:59:24 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Oooh, a boxset with the Voyager-ish Prime Breakdown and the Jet Vehicon we never got. Can't wait to snag those.

iacon45: Just got Airwave today but haven't opened him. Agreed on Hammerbyte, he's the best of Cyberverse IMO.
Sept 17, 2020 22:10:38 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: So Airwave is fun, and certainly more effective with parts than Ironworks. Not enough to make me sad I missed the repaint from Selects though. Hammerbyte, meanwhile, is a pretty cool little toy for Cyberverse
Sept 17, 2020 21:58:55 GMT -5
iacon45: It just freely spins and keeps wanting to face backwards. I started a return with Amazon.
Sept 15, 2020 21:37:48 GMT -5
iacon45: Cyberverse Iaconus is not a great toy. I wasn't expecting Generations but I can't keep the upper torso locked in robot mode.
Sept 15, 2020 21:33:15 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Nah, just a dull gray, maybe yellowish sometimes
Sept 14, 2020 10:29:57 GMT -5
iacon45: Do the skies look red like in the news posts?
Sept 13, 2020 18:57:46 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: As is, mostly we're just staying inside because the smoke from everyone else's fires on the west coast is blowing through here. It's gag worthy outside.
Sept 13, 2020 17:33:59 GMT -5
Greatshot: Yeah, 25 miles is close enough with crazy fires. glad to hear y'all are ok
Sept 13, 2020 16:33:51 GMT -5
iacon45: Good to know you two are ok. I saw pictures of some of the fires and it's crazy and scary looking how bad it is in the affected areas.
Sept 13, 2020 8:06:37 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Yeah, the fires didn't get close to us. It was about 25 miles away but they put them out
