Crosshairs is in charge of the amazing arsenal the Autobots use to battle the Decepticons. He is meticulous and very careful, to the point where he is hesitant to fire his weapon unless he knows he will hit his target! Check out my advance review and gallery of Siege Crosshairs.

The Autobot known as Rung is a mysterious figure. It may seem like he just performs psych evaluations and builds model ships, but there is definitely more to this Autobot than meets the eye! Courtesy of Hasbro, check out my review and gallery of Battle Master Rung!

"Studio Series" Dropkick is probably one of the least screen-accurate figures in the line, but that doesn't mean he's not a fun toy. Check out my review and gallery of "Studio Series" Dropkick!

The Expanse is a science fiction show set in the future where humanity has colonized the Solar System. It is based on a series of novels under the same title. Unlike more optimistic shows like Star Trek, The Expanse acknowledges humanity's strengths and weaknesses as the crew of a ship named The Rocinante navigates not only space but the intense politics between different worlds and government factions. The show has been called Game of Thrones in Space and from a complexity standpoint the description is apt. (Read more...)

Even the "Warrior Class" only partly recalls the days when "Warrior Class" meant "Deluxe Class but in a kid focused line". Hasbro has heard the call and in 2020 they will be introducing a new Class of figures to Cyberverse, the Deluxe Class!
