@  -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.

@  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)

@  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)

@  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 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -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)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

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.

Speaking of seige, I wish they released refraktor in one more color scheme so I can have two cameras where no robot looks identical. Right now I just have the toy based set, but add one more version and I can justify buying this new Netflix guy and the cartoon version.

I'm still kind of disappointed that the 3-pack Viewfinder isn't in the old toy's dark blue instead of nearly the exact same blue as Spyglass. :hmm It's making me consider getting Scrapface for a similar purpose, too - though I wonder if the battle damage paint apps will make him stand out too much from the two pristine-looking Refraktor bodies he wouldn't be replacing. Meanwhile, the purple Refraktor is pretty much mythological here in the Philippines. :burn

Oh, he showed up, just went fairly fast. Spotted a handful in different stores over the course of a couple weeks at the time. And I don't know if they ever restocked that wave in good numbers.

It's interesting that "under" all the black scorching or whatever, Hotlink has light magenta-purple for both his fists/feet bits and his "diecast" chest bits. I think Sunstorm is the only other non-conehead matched like that. Of course, all three coneheads do it, so it's not especially unique.

 

(Nacelle doesn't count because he doesn't use an original-Seeker-mold layout.)

 

(Okay, yes, the godawful Rainmakers are also like that, but that's because they only have one color each.)

So...acting on a hot tip about restocked hand sanitizer, I braved the local Walmart and walked out with a $5 Siege Megatron (and nearly a $9 Magnus).

What's the best way to take off the grime paint apps? Rubbing alcohol? Magic Eraser?

Denatured alcohol. It's $3-4 at most Walmarts. Constant scrubbing with a Q-Tip, and a whole lot of patience, is also necessary.

 

Also, that's an incredible deal on those Siege figures.

Yeah, I was really tempted to buy the Magnus, but I didn't really need it, even at a steal. They had a couple of Siege Starscreams for the same price, too.

Newer stuff, like Apeface and the deluxes (like the Spinister that I scanned) were more towards "decent" sale prices ($25 and $19 respectively).

Is there a difference between denatured alcohol and isopropyl alcohol? I have a bottle of 90 percent here already.

I usually have good luck with alcohol, but if you get a really stubborn tampo, I have also had good luck with a product called Plast-X by Meguiars. Its a plastic lens polish, available at most auto parts stores.

Yes. Isopropyl/rubbing alcohol is intended for sterilization and therapeutic uses, and it's excellent in those arenas. 70% is better when cleaning cuts and scrapes, or wiping down an area in preparation for an injection. The 90% solution is pretty good at removing acrylic and some factory paints from models and toys.

However you'll occasionally run into some really tough paint applications, and denatured alcohol tends to work better. It's basically ethanol with additives to prevent its use as drinking alcohol. Methanol is a typical additive, and it should never be used for cleaning cuts or scrapes or anything like that.

It's often used as an industrial solvent, and as a clean-burning fuel for things like camping stoves. Not only does it burn clean, but it extinguishes easily with water.

I tend to keep both 90% isopropyl alcohol, and denatured alcohol on hand for paint stripping purposes. I use the isopropyl more often, and usually only haul out the denatured alcohol when I need to.

That said, you'll sometimes run into tough spots that even denatured alcohol won't remove.
