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

@  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)

@  -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)

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

@  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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

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)

Due March 18.

 

 

 

Want to feel old, God Fire Convoy first came out in 2000.  Which was 16 years after G1 started, and right when Takara first started reissuing G1 Transformers.  When this Encore figure comes out, it will have been 17 to 18 years since Fire Convoy and God Magnus were released.  This also explains why Fire Convoy's voice actor was recently recording something in the the studios - updating the voice I imagine (from Figure King below).

Who didn't see Topspin and Twintwist coming with Pointblank and Spoilsport?

Oh man, wasn't there a rumor about a Fire Convoy reissue a couple years back that turned out to not have happened? Maybe it was just delayed.

Encore God Fire Convoy, will have come out 5 years after the last Encore release (Fortress Maximus in March of 2013).

 

If he is under the Encore label.

I wonder if that's going to finish off the Titans Return imports. Though I guess we also have to see how Takara handles Power of the Primes tiny figures.

I still have my original Hasbro RiD 2001 figures, but if there's anything worthwhile about this Encore reissue, I just may have to check it out.

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 would think so, as all the major Voyager, Deluxe, and Leader molds have been released.

 

Wilder / Fangry's Headmaster figure being the only obvious omission thus far.

 

Ptero and his vehicle were never released either, and I imagine this Lione is his head only.  No lion partner.

 

Shuffler's head was never released, but the retool was as Clouder.


I still have my original Hasbro RiD 2001 figures, but if there's anything worthwhile about this Encore reissue, I just may have to check it out.

 

Probably a new voice clip by the original Japanese actor.

 

Hopefully better tires?

A God Fire Convoy reissue...damn I feel old, brings back memories of a nerdy me still in school drooling over its prototype pics via dial-up.

Hope the rubber on this reissue won't crack or, worse yet, erode plastic.

I certainly like that they're likely giving us the remaining 1987 Hasbro Autobot Targetmasters guns, but I lament the (impending) loss of the Jumpstarters actual guns.

The Targetmasters may end up looking a bit weird with these guys, since they'll be gray and red with white and blue guys.

Granted I'm a person that dislikes when the Targetmaster is the same color as their larger partner (Universe Cyclonus, SG Cyclonus, LG Slugslinger - it would seem).  But the contrast might be a bit too much.  :D

God Ginrai was 14 years old when they reissued it. Star Convoy was 15.

Fire Convoy will be 18.

But it's just not the same, dammit, because Fire Convoy wasn't the drool-object on slow dial-up connections that showed them on fan sites so rudimentary they didn't know which figure was which. Nobody ever paid $600 for a MIB Fire Convoy.... right?

When I got my Deathsaurus it was 7 years old. That's not the same as today buying ROTF Jetfire.... is it?

Fire Convoy was definitely a drool object on slow dial-up connections.  But people knew who he was at the time.  :D

 

I remember a place called Charms in Manchester, CT that would sell bootleg VHS of fansubbed anime.  They were open for a short time, but I'm pretty sure they had both Fire Convoy and Black Convoy for roughly $200 at their store.

No, because it was foreign, which gives it Weeb Bonus. You'd have to buy that ROTF Buster Prime/Jetfire two-pack, which you actually could easily spend $600 on now.

Woo!

 

Legends Seaspray should be skippable. I was worried they'd give him Headmaster Alana or something.

 

I think I'm passing on the Legends Jumpstarters as well. As much as I love Targetmasters, Hasbro's guns are cool, they'd feel incomplete without them.

Plus I already have TR Topspin, and I there's really no way they could improve the deco much, if at all.
