Supreme Starscream, one of the largest figures of the toyline

OverviewEdit

Autobots and Decepticons face their ongoing battle to destroy each other's forces in a world where once-fundamental rules are valid no longer. They do not feud over Energon; now they fight to recover four ancient artifacts of great power: the Cyber Planet Keys, dormant for ages on Earth, Speed, Jungle, and Giant Planets. Unicron is no more; in his place, sheer empty Void without will or being, in the form of a massive black hole, threatens to devour the entire universe. The conflict, too, draws many to itself, as whole worlds of previously unknown neutrals join forces with either side. Even time proves no barrier, and figures from the forgotten past appear to join the fight against universal extinction!

Toyline overviewEdit

There are six planets, two factions, and one unifying feature: the cyber key. These clear-plastic disks with key-like projections now activate special weapons and hidden features, much like the Mini-Cons of Armada, even on most figures remolded from previous lines. Redecos, like the Cybertron release of Armada's Super-Con Optimus Prime, come with remolded keys that have a mini-con connector to unlock gimmicks. The gimmicks are less intrusive than Armada; articulation suffers far less for their inclusion, though some lower-priced figures do lack a little when compared to Energon. Combination has largely disappeared -- but not completely. Each toy is assigned a planet. This determines which Cyber Key is included, but also seems to correlate with some design choices, as will be seen below. Each Cyber Key comes with a code printed on the back. For a list of codes, go to Cyber Key Codes.

Earth Planet toy overviewEdit

These generally convert into fairly normal Earth vehicles. Robot modes are angular and normally proportioned for humanoid transformers. Faces are traditionally styled.

Speed Planet toy overviewEdit

Cyber Key symbol Velocitron

The symbol on Velocitron's Cyber Keys.

Alternate modes are fantasy racing vehicles, with transparent plastic tires. Vehicle modes are futuristic and occasionally Vehicon-like in appearance. The Speed Planet robots have their own unique body proportions, generally featuring large upper bodies, long thighs and thin waists.

Jungle Planet toy overviewEdit

Jungle Planet alternate modes are robotic beasts. Their styling is sometimes very organic in shape and even in texture, but not really to the point of techno-organism. Robot modes and faces are widely varied, and hark back to the Beast Era in creative differences from the "standard" humanoid model. Jungle Planet designs: Beast Wars Transmetals or Beast Machines Maximals (sharing something of the "liquid metal animal" aesthetic), per the above analogy.

Giant Planet toy overviewEdit

Cyber Key symbol Gigantion

The symbol on Gigantion's Cyber Keys.

Giant Planet robots are gargantuan in appearance, relying on detail and proportion to create an impression of massive size. The Giant Planet toys are roughly in scale with the Legends of Cybertron figures. Of the Giant Planet toys released, two (Metroplex and Menasor) are almost completely alien in appearance, while Quickmix and the Giant Planet Mini-Con Team are fairly "normal", like everyday Earth vehicles.

Planet X toy overviewEdit

Alternate modes are usually futuristic jets, with the exception being Unicron (who is a futuristic tank). It's somewhat difficult to draw conclusions when only three toys from this planet were released. In general, these are alien in appearance, even more so than the Speed or Giant Planet toys.

Cybertron Planet toy overviewEdit

Cybertron Planet toys are the "everything else" category. There are two distinct Planet Keys for Cybertron: one with an Autobot symbol and the other with a Decepticon insignia. Toys with Cybertron Planet Keys range from normal to futuristic. This category usually represents characters who are either part of the "original" Autobot and Decepticon teams searching for the Planet Keys, or those who never left or have an affinity for Cybertron (such as Buzzsaw or Longrack). The unique keys carried by Optimus and Megatron arguably belong in this category, despite being labeled as Earth Planet in their original releases (or Giant and Universal with their respective redecos).

  • Intrestingly, due to the size of their hands, the guns of some scout class toys can plug into the Powerlinx sockets of some Mini-Cons.
