I swear, I'm in line to use a coupon, there is something wrong with said coupon, and suddenly I'm holding up a line of 3 or 4 people

Shockwave did it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 May 2020 - 12:21 AM)

I'm not in the US and at least some of the episodes seem to work for me. I don't know the actual list of places it's available, though.

@  Shockwave 75 : (29 May 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Unfortunately It seems Cyberverse is only available in the US on YouTube.

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 May 2020 - 09:19 AM)

Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

@  Nevermore : (28 May 2020 - 07:21 PM)

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

3 seasons on a show is usually enough... but yeah ;-;

@  Roddie Luver : (27 May 2020 - 09:37 PM)

I’m also sad Cyberverse has no season four.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

Unreleased G2 Sandstorm Prototype Selling Online

A prototype of the unreleased Generation 2 toy Sandstorm is selling on auction site Taobao.  This redeco of the G1 seeker mold was long thought to be a Ramjet redeco and more recently was revealed to have been intended to be a new character.  This is a character I personally hadn't been aware of, so this is exciting!  But it's not $3073 of exciting (the price) - at least not for me.  Is it for you?

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I have him as Shattered Glass Sandstorm who crossed over to the positive universe and reformatted himself to become a member of Battle Gaia.

I do like the idea of Generations Blitzwing as a combination of this Sandstorm and Battle Gaia Sandstorm. As for characterisation... I got nothing.

Black Death Starscream is totally the same character as Robotmasters Black Starscream, and a counterpart of Starscream Clone Black Version, though. ("Nightfall", perhaps?)

If I could drop the name "Sandstorm", he would be a non-movie Breakaway who defected from the Decepticon Seekers.

Missed quite a few if you want to get into the unreleased G2 decos.

An entry of Ask Vector Prime featured him! Didn't give any personality but placed him in his reality's battle of Sherman Dam.

Don't you mean "Jungle Attack" Starscream on that last one?

My headcanon is that the sky blue/navy blue Ramjet deco represents both a new G1 Seeker and the Shattered Glass version of Ramjet.

I say Hasbro should take the CW Starscream mold, and start from the back of the line. Give us Sandstorm, Black Death Starscream, sky blue Ramjet, jungle Ramjet, and Redwing, and then get around to the Rainmakers and the 1984/1985 toys.

Eh, as much as I like Seekers, I feel that Seekers are best a deluxe or voyager size, not leader. But I suppose the leader class is rather fitting of High Chancellor Starscream of the Republic of Cybertron in IDW G1.

What I think would be more fitting from the Generations Jetfire mold is Skyquake/Scrash. With regard to that though, I guess the Generations Jetfire mold would also be good for an update of Machine Wars Starscream.

My headcanon is that the sky blue/navy blue Ramjet deco represents both a new G1 Seeker and the Shattered Glass version of Ramjet.

 

Yeah, I will agree that toy being Shattered Glass Ramjet's color scheme, but I would object to making it a new G1 seeker.

 

Yeah, no. Unless REALLY desperate for ideas, those wouldn't have happened

 

I would like to think you're joking, as we just got Oilmaster, Sergeant Hound and General Optimus Prime.

 

I do like the idea of Generations Blitzwing as a combination of this Sandstorm and Battle Gaia Sandstorm.

 

Yeah, that's what I want, but from Doubledealer or with a new head. He would have different insignias on each of his modes. SG Decepticon insignia in robot mode, G1 Decepticon insignia in tank mode (with the words "BATTLE GAIA" visible to reinforce the point) and G2 Decepticon insignia in jet mode.
