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...

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

a toyline searching for a story

@  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)

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

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.

So, I finally got to pull Hammerbyte out of his plastic prison, and he is a lot of fun! A solid robot mode, a sleek robotic hammerhead shark mode, and his crazy attack mode makes him look like a shark-headed mecha-kaiju. The action attack doesnt interfere with either mode much, unlike some other Cyberverse figures Ive seen. I could envision Hammerbyte having been a UT Cybertron release, all hes missing is an appropriate Cyber Planet Key.

Anyway, Hammerbyte is a fun figure, and an original character, too. i would highly recommend him!

I love that his personality is basically "Classic Aquaman."

Not having seen the cartoon, I wondered if that wouldnt be the personality they would go for. His title is Guardian of the Argon sea, and there is a small part of me that wants to headcanon him as an Autobot-aligned Gobot off of that. If Hasbro released a decent Legion/Scout version, I would for sure. Hes Awesome!

Found Hammerbyte today myself and he is an absolute charmer. Easily the best of the Warrior class figures I've handled/had - though I'll admit to that not being many. 

 

 I could envision Hammerbyte having been a UT Cybertron release, all hes missing is an appropriate Cyber Planet Key.

 

Fully agree, he feels like he'd be right at home in that line.

I spent minutes trying to figure out how Hammerbyte's lower jaw moves up to the shark mouth in altmode before I realized there was a second lower jaw.

anyone looking for Deluxe Grimlock & Hot Rod?

EE also lists the release date for Arcee & Thunderhowl as JUNE, when initial listings at most other stores said September/October.

 

 

Hope they're right...

So the Scout Class Wheeljack figure that was briefly seen at Toy Fair before it was removed from the display has now been released in the UK, along with the Bumblebee retool that was meant to be released last year in "Power of the Spark" packaging but then didn't because Hasbro apparently skipped that wave altogether.

The Wheeljack looks intriguing. Has anyone got one out of package yet? Im curious if his car mode almost works as well as Ramjet's jet mode did, or if its the typical Cyberverse scout with a worthless altmode and beautiful robot mode?

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.
