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)

I tried... but it just wasn't that good. The comics were better.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 June 2020 - 04:07 PM)

I didn't even watch Armada when it originally aired.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 June 2020 - 01:52 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

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 .-.

No more Sakamoto comics being a possibility is easily the best news about this line.

I wouldn't count on that, Takara will have to craft some fiction around this somehow.

And I for one am interested to see if it'll vary from Hasbro's in any manner.
I'd miss 'em if there were no more Legends style comics. There's so much ridiculous referencing and love in those pack-ins.

 

 

And that love is totally legal and it has the laminated wallet card to prove it.

Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I've said it before, I'll say it again, Primal has GOT to get his drinking under control.  I'm not sure how he'll be Autobot leader if he's carrying a huge monkey on his back.

 

But he is a box

If I know anything about fandoms, there's a sizable contingent of Japanese fans celebrating that their domestic toys now match the superior American toys from where Transformers came from originally.

So far no leaked or announced figures for the month of June (last couple of months at this same time we had them by now). Could come in to he next few days still, but we usually have a list by now.

Gives me hope that they're waiting for Unite Warriors to make a triumphant return.

I think it's pretty safe to assume that since there hasn't been any listings leaked or preorders gone up, that there are no releases of anything related to Power of the Primes for June 2018.  As we would have heard about it by now.

It could be coming later in the year, when they are ready to actually let the world know what they are planning to do

I STILL have found no PotP toys at retail in the Indianapolis area.  I'm thinking about going scouting on my lunch break though and seeing what I can find.  If not, I'm half tempted to just old off on getting anything until we see what Takara has in store for the line (if anything).

 

UPDATE:  Was able to find everyone but Starscream at Target today!  I'm super excited to get these guys home and open them up.

More solicits out (don't know how to share as am on mobile). It's just everyone up to wave 2 Hasbro-side as released in the west, with every classic Dinobot in a single wave and the remaining characters done as a wave 3.

Probably the biggest takeaway is that there's no magical resurgence of Unite Warriors or anything like some people were hoping for. I suppose we could still hope for a Starscream without stickers, but that sadly may be a bridge too far now.

at least the evil is defeated
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.

My last bastion of hope is that these are either changed or TakaraTomy hasn't gone completely tone deaf to a collector market for these and does some UW style box sets as TakaraTomy Mall exclusives like the last three LG-EX sets (which are very collector oriented).
