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)

@  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)

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

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

@  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.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

All I'm saying is that a new mold each - and limited other new tooling - for two of the most popular Combiners from G1 is not really the same as two full new molds - neither of which could really be reused - plus numerous new heads and weapons for a popular non-G1 combiner.

Is it possible? Sure. Is it likely? I would say no.

Star Saber being the most popular guy from that series, and he's only had a few candy toys and the fan-voted Masterpiece since the original.

I'm not saying that Victory isn't popular, but I wouldn't hasten to assume that it's moreso than G1.

 

I'm not saying it's more so then G1, just that I don't think we can say for sure if Liokaizer is less popular then other G1 combiners; as Victory seems to be the most popular of their three exclusive series.

True enough. And, sure, Liokaiser is, from what I've seen, one (er, six) of the most popular Victory characters. But, again, two more-or-less non-reusable* new Deluxes for one combiner seems a bit out-there even for Takara.

 

*unless they figured out some way to muddle them into the Monstructor/Dinoforce torso guys, in which case I would fall to my knees and pledge my service to Takara forevermore.

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.

No, but Liokaiser had a far larger role in Victory than Defensor did in the G1 cartoon.

Star Saber bad his Masterpiece toy, Robot Masters, and GT. Plus Wing Saber's existence is thanks to TakaraTomy. It seems that Takara tries to stick him in whenever they can. I'd say the only reason we don't see him more is because most lines are developed for both Western and Eastern audiences. And his existence isn't very well known out of Asia.

So anything Liokaiser, a very popular character from the same series, is not completely out of the realm of possibility with all the other stuff we've seen from Unite Warriors.

Not to split hairs re: Liokaiser, but isn't Victory considered G1? To Japan, G1 is, I believe, everything from the original series through Operation Combination. So a Japanese fan of G1 might be open to later stuff like Victory (given the winner of the fan vote...and yes: it does make me sad that fans over here would not vote to create something from our 1989, say, a MP Sky Hammer. :D). (Hey, Sky Hammer appeared in anime form too...in that dream I had about Sky Hammer...)

If you can judge from Takara's general output, even including their wholly domestic lines, there's just not as much interest in the later years of G1 there. Yes, they eventually got around to a handful of later characters in SCF, for example (including Liokaiser, even), but mostly it's the same as it is here - '84-'86 over and over, with the occasional later nod (largely in the form of Star Saber).

 

I think it's a fool's game to put money down that Takara wouldn't make a new Leozack or Jarrguar for UW at this point, but I don't think there's actually a ton of domestic love for that stuff.

 

(Much like this Computron situation, I literally only care about the thing they wouldn't be including, which is the insane Sky Lynx Deathsaurus, so I don't have a dog in this fight either.)

There's a group photo out there of the robot modes of these guys, but I'm on mobile so I can't copypaste properly.

They look about what I'd expect: acceptible blocks of colour with some meaningful detail, no blue face on Scattershot, Afterburner is frustratingly the same red as everyone else, and there's no Scrounge included.
Please check out my Sonic the Hedgehog project on LEGO Ideas. I've been working on it for pretty much the last year and it's almost there, so any more votes would really help me out.

They look far better than I'd have ever expected, but there's still a fair few naff things carried over from the cartoon, like the aforementioned non-blue Scattershot face.

Man, that Lightspeed head blends a lot better in colour. Pity about the lack of silver stripes, though.
Oh, and at least now there's a use for single-release Scattershot: junker heads!
Dunno how I feel about Afterburner, though; I wanted him in orange, but I like this colour contrast a lot. I wonder how hard it would be to swap Takarafterburner's white and trans-blue parts onto Hasbrafterburner...
