When our crew at the New York Comic-Con shared a look at the Transformers Prime Cyberverse toys earlier
, one of the main talking points was the use of clear plastic, particular on Megatron. We've received some more pictures from our team at the NYCC which reveals just what all that clear plastic is going to do! Evidently Wheeljack's spaceship will come with a light up feature, which can attach to other Cyberverse figures to make them "glow" through their transparent plastic parts - perhaps to simulate an Energon infusion?
Although this answer raises further questions - could this mean a Decepticon light-up set is also on the cards, to give the Decepticons an evil red or purple glow? And with the emphasis on clear weapons, and the ports on Wheeljack's ship looking just the right size to take them, could there be potential to attach the clear weapons to the ship and make them light up too?
