The toys had some good parts. They also had Side Swipe.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

I mean, still addicted to minicons...

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 June 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Energon and Cybertron WERE boring... and Starscream was just messed up in those shows....

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 07:47 PM)

Eh. It had a few ideas that could've been interesting. They just never went anywhere because it was easier to have Megatron brainwash everyone.

@  Nevermore : (05 June 2020 - 07:41 PM)

Energon's biggest problem is that it was made.

@  Paladin : (05 June 2020 - 05:15 PM)

remember when Energon had to switch animation styles because their CGI models were completely incapable of expressing emotions ?

@  Thundercrack... : (05 June 2020 - 04:42 PM)

And what was done to Demolisher to a lesser extent.

@  Thundercrack... : (05 June 2020 - 04:34 PM)

Energon's biggest problem is what it did to Starscream.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 04:00 PM)

I mean, they took all of that and the series is still dull enough to use as a sleep aid, so....

@  wonko the sane? : (05 June 2020 - 02:46 PM)

It's a food source, a weapon and so unstable that looking at it funny makes it explode. If energon is boring, blame the writers not the element.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 02:17 PM)

Energon's big problem is that it's boring.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 June 2020 - 01:48 PM)

They dubbed reaction shots and running scenes in the first two UT shows with "huh?" and grunts. very annoying.

@  Sabrblade : (04 June 2020 - 06:10 PM)

Watch it in Japanese with English subs. Karyuudo did all that work for us so that we could. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (04 June 2020 - 06:08 PM)

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.

Actually, the goal was to get stores willing to sign on to carry product.  A couple hundred stores did sign on.  Goal met.  What's happening now is more a function of flushing inventory at cost from people either panicking about MkIII or realizing they've been blackballed and getting out of selling PP stuff entirely.

 

---Dave

Then why is brand new product available at a discount beyond the 10% target?

"Blood of Kings" has also been released, and proving a fun read so far. Very Caine-centric, which suits me fine.

One thing I do like seeing in the leaked cards is that merc and minion friendly casters do still exist. Like Siege. His feat doesn't care about "friendly Faction", which is big. Explosivo is "friendly Faction", but it's only for one model so you weren't like to want to use it on Boomhowlers anyway. So yeah, he's pretty merc-friendly. Kara Sloan is another one since most of her stuff is battlegroup-focused so again, the infantry she takes wouldn't likely be getting buffed anyway.

 

Going over to Legion, Thagrosh1 with Gatormen should still work. The Gatormen have changed a little, but they'll still benefit from enemies being weakened by Death Shroud. You can't use Draconic Blessing on them, but if you've got some melee beasts you won't be lacking targets to use it on.

I suppose for a discussion topic...as we head into 3e, whether you've looked at the leaks or stuck to PP's insiders, what Warcasters/Warlocks are you expecting or hoping to try in the new edition?

I've actually got a build in mind for her:

 

Bethayne
-Shredder x2
-Belphagor
-Seraph
-Blightbringer
Blackfrost Shard
Blighted Nyss Swordsmen
~Abbot & Champion
Spell Martyr
The Forsaken

 

Just remains to be seen if it hits the proper balance. Can stack a hell of a lot of debuffs though!

Oh, Stingers are pretty worthless now. I just have the Shredders around as redundancy in Fury generation (Especially if Beth melds early) and Flank enablers on feat turn.

The leaked cards continue to line up with the previews, so they're probably accurate. I'm a little conflicted by Sloan, though. I'm glad she's gotten better and probably will use her in MK3. While I think the doom and gloom on the PP boards about turn 1 assassinations are probably overblown (you can always screen your caster with terrain or other models), I have to admit she could create some negative play experiences. With a bunch of ranged warjacks and early use of her feat, she could do a LOT of damage to enemy melee before they have a chance to do anything. That's not going to be fun to play against, even if she winds up being balanced by relative weakness against whatever melee stuff survives to reach her.

Yeah, increase in terrain is the BIG thing that keeps Kara from being a gamekiller.  And since you know what you're facing before placing terrain, you can place it tactically to mess with her lines of sight.  There definitely looks to be an emphasis on "pay attention to terrain placement" in MkIII overall.
