Megatron's coupon has failed! Now I, Starscream, shall speak to your manager!

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 June 2020 - 06:39 PM)

(i just want to make jokes excuse my doing)

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 June 2020 - 06:38 PM)

ITS STARSCREAM.... AND HIS CLONES

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 June 2020 - 06:31 PM)

And there was no one there when I started!

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 June 2020 - 06:31 PM)

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 June 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Ha! Talk about getting away with something!

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 June 2020 - 09:08 AM)

Carnivac was still an evil Decepticon at heart, and no one shot him in the back for it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 May 2020 - 01:40 PM)

*hands llittleautobot1218 a light switch* There you go.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 10:53 AM)

I feel a need to lighten up the mood.... ;)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 10:38 AM)

:p

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 May 2020 - 02:14 AM)

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)

*Figured -_-

@  -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.

@  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.

I'd given up hope that this was ever happening, seeing as the series was announced 4 years back, but we finally have something tangible.  And newswires are saying the production team will be at SDCC.

 

 

I really like the idea of the Power Suits being replaced by total bionic augmentation, it feels more like where future technology is headed.

It was always a little inner joke that I wouldn't consider the whole reboot thing to have gone too far until they reboot Captain Power.

 

Well then.

So, is this officially Captain Power, or like a spiritual successor? If it's the real deal, why the name change?

It's the real deal, the original producers are involved, that IS Captain Power's original actor onscreen (now playing the character's father), you see the old logo morph into the new one.

 

I don't think it's been explicitly stated, but I figure the new series is being marketed to general audiences instead of kids, so they went with a name that's not going to tell adults to steer clear.

Gotta wonder if someone is going to reboot Captain Planet any time soon? I mean, it's one of the few shows that you can't really have people complaining that it's been ruined by some left wing, environmentalist, anti-corporate, multicultural conspiracy (though I'm sure someone would try).

weird... how the name change flies in the face of the entire point of a nostalgia reboot.

 

oh we're rebooting captain power fans of the show seem to want more... but we're calling it something else to kill all the brand recognition -in hopes that new audience members don't get turned off by it being linked to that crappy old Captain Power show...

 

:rolleyes

 

and man ...Phoenix Rising? couldn't you guys come up with anything else?  that's the lamest thing in the world

This was a fascinating , and long, retrospective on Captain Power. I really must have missed the show and merch back then, because although some of the suits and bots look familiar, i definitely don't recall ever warching the show.

Still, I'm sold on this new version.

We are, however, getting a reboot of Trolls.  Those naked sexless dolls with the big shock of brightly colored hair.  Movie coming later this year.

I feel like I should be excited by this but I'm really not. I loved Captain Power passably as a kid but I loved the commercials that pretended to interrupt other fake commercials, the toys and the combat cartoon VHS. We had both ship-guns, a few action figures, and two of those BEAUTIFULLY animated training tapes and we played with and loved those a lot. I don't think I ever saw the TV show,.. So, this is neat conceptually but not the stuff about CP I love at all.


-ZacWilliam, also from what I've heard and read the old style "light-guns vs TV toys" can not function with modern style televisions. So sadly you loose a lot of cool right there.

Edited by ZacWilliam1, 20 July 2016 - 06:07 AM.

Well, I'd say the closest modern update to the "shoot guns at the TV" gimmick would probably be some kind of Augmented Reality thing for phones.

they... sorta did? With Don Cheadle in the title role. It's huggin' epic.

(And yeah I know that's a joke series and nothing serious. Still worth a laugh ;) )

On topic: I loved Captain Power and am curious about the reboot. The video have me chills when I recognized the music.

Is it explicitely called "Phoenix Rising" though? From the video it looked more like "Captain Power: Phoenix Rising" (which on a name standpoint would make more sense than just 'Phoenix Rising' as that doesn't have any link to the original material in the name)
