@  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

Ha! Talk about getting away with something!

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)

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 .-.

@  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.

-ZacWilliam, there are some exclusives yet to be announced but that's it. WFC starts in Jan (which means Nov/Dec)

Technically, they haven't announced Inferno, Cindersaur, and Outback yet.

But, man, that means we only get 6 Prime Master molds, 5 Legends molds, 6 Deluxe molds, 3 Voyager molds, 3 Leader molds, and 1 Titan mold for this year of Generations. The rest are retools.

Cybertronian alt modes has a lot more potential for being interesting than Earth-based alt modes I think. So I’m pretty okay with this whole thing.

As far as “prequel” and “story”... outside of maybe a Machinima tie-in, there isn’t much need to fear any actual narrative touching the line.

I would bet it'll follow Prime Wars lead and we'll get a dash of new bots like Slash and Alpha Bravo but they'll be one or two a year rare.

Every figure comes with one of the War Dawn Decepticon Cube-Men. So you can stack them in neat piles and then step back and appreciate how square they are.

Just figure out something to do with the heads, and the Titan/Prime Masters are halfway there.

 

And if you do them as energon cubes, you can have them as a call back to these guys.

Big Red with big jet crushing hands or we riot.

How does this get broken into a trilogy? What are the gimmicks? Do we still get little guys to provide a sense of scale for the big guys? Quintessons, who you plug into the robots and pretend are controlling them? Mini-Spies/Micromasters to drive around on the robots? Breastforce/cassette style animal partners being awesome? Cyberdroids/Dianauts doing something?

Where was this stated to start in Jan? I didnt see any indication POTP was not an 18-month line.

 

That Novastar was the single new toy in her assortment in Wave 4 should have been a clue for all of us.

 

I mean, I noticed, but I didn't want to accept the truth.

For a while now I've had the thought that I'd love to see a line using Animated-style engineering to make Cybertronian modes out of Dery models. Ideally models that we've never seen Cybertronian modes for. That way the robot modes can be as close to having stepped off the screen as possible without Masterpiece-level fiddliness, since the alt-modes could be anything that flows naturally from them.

Here we go. From Ben Yee reporting from the Hasbro panel:

https://twitter.com/...946139031228417

"(They) Want to tell the story of the war on Cybertron before they came to Earth. NOT based on the video games. #HasbroToyFair #NYTF #Transformers"

-ZacWilliam, so that seems pretty clear

 

I've been thinking on how to elaborate on why I'm so tepid on this, and I think it's that this story's just been told. So many times. With little variation.

 

Even IDW failed to really add much to it, it just expanded on stuff Aligned laid the seeds for.

 

This is the least necessary TF story to explore, save for anything involving Unicron and the events of TFTM.

I'm over here hoping that if its a prequel they can inject the Colony worlds concept in from the begining. So we don't have "lost" colonies, but still have Caminus Eukaris, Devisun et al represented in the current toyline.

I just want a legends class Aileron and more ladybots dammit. Some more mech-y beast bots too.

As a kid I always wanted to see more of their Cybertronian modes so the occasional episode there they went to Cybertron were my among favorites, but over the years I got stuff like Cybertron/GF Starscream and the WfC and FoC games and toys satisfied that very well.

 

I do hope they make Ironhide in his game and RiD15 body, always wanted a toy of that.

 

 

And it crossed my mind that I hope they still use the Colony worlds.

In this interview, the Hasbro team talks about how they want to take the next trilogy in a different design direction, and there's stuff about bridging the gap between the aesthetics that different areas of the world enjoy.  

 

Which sounds to me like WFC2-or-whatever might be a little movie-y, who knows.

Additionally, they talk about how the next Fan Choice two-sets couldn't possibly be redecos/retools of any Prime Wars toys for reasons that will be obvious to us once we know more about the next toyline.

The reference to "'gritty' [ugh] realism" and less toyetic designs than Power of the Primes is actually pretty good news. Wonder whether that's going to mean something more like what Studio Series looks like on the shelf.


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?
