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.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 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)

*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.

@  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.

Ancient billion-year-old living dudes have now outstripped Point One Percenters in being so common they're no longer meaningful at all.

I mean that kind of already happened with Rewind and Tailgate and the entire Dead Universe Ark crew, but geez.

This issue also had the biggest example of Megatron Is Perfect and Too Good For This World yet when he has medical skills that save Drift from death after Ratchet and Velocity, the former of which is a genius in his field, had given up.

Megatron's clearly done a lot of medical training during the time he was in the Functionist Universe, and I can accept that with the divergent development that took place there, maybe they had worked out a way to cure stuff which hadn't been cured in the primary universe (because they didn't spend a ton of time fighting a war) so it was just a common procedure that Megatron could teach Ratchet and Velocity in five minutes.

Robert is made to withstand plenty of play, and transforms from car to robot! Go, Robert, go!

Why will we solve after Robert grasps the abysmal winter's ulcer? He may change rural tailors, do you join them? The films, tapes, and spoons are all good and fresh.

Wow. That's a whole lot of something. I do like "it's not just Pharma". I don't actively dislike anything else? These Dudes Were Those Dudes works okay here I think.

Really doubled down on Autobot Megatron, giving him centuries of heroism in the FU. I absolutely love it and I'm so happy to have him back.

Obviously this book will always be divisive, but personally for the first time I'm sitting here thinking maybe Roberts might wrap this up pretty well.

I like this design for Cybertron Primus, especially the cities everywhere like on his fingers.

 

So the Functionist Council killed their Rung, who is Primus, in the name of Primus, way to go guys. Also I was hoping to see them combined into the Key of Vector Sigma but there's only 7 of the 12, so oh well.

 

But even if Rung contains the Primus spark, or something, what does he turn into!

 

I like that Megatron's fusion cannon is really a med kit.

So they didn't "find the Guiding Hand" at all. Most of them were known, pre-existing characters. If it turned out that Rudy Giuliani was actually secretly Beowulf, you wouldn't congratulate everyone who'd met him for "finding" Beowulf.

Lotta gloom and doom here for an issue that I felt played fair and gave a lot of folks what they wanted.

Megatron actually PUTTING IN THE WORK to redeem himself? Check.

The symbol of the bad guys being a transformation cog THIS WHOLE TIME? Arrrrrgh check (and wonder who from this time gets totally sent back in time to become the original Adaptus cause that still has to happen). (PS Adaptus was first mentioned in the issue with Pharma's first appearance)

Knights being just guys and gods being just old? Check check and very much in tune with the "sci-fi" philosophy of transformers.

Megatron actually getting a damn scene with Drift? Check but that may have just been me. (And the whole healing hands bit is a reference to Optimus in Eugenesis, which in turn was referencing a forgotten part of the original Budiansky profile--Megatron has become the Optimus of another place and time.)

And I mean, it's not like Megatron is just getting narrative rewards handed to him, given that his enemies have intentionally killed everyone they ever thought he loved and have been beating his faction for centuries just by virtue of being institutionally entrenched.

Anyway. BIG MONSTER!

Ratchet's been a medic for 4 million years. Megatron has only been one for hundreds. And given the dystopian nature of the Functionist Universe, I doubt they found a cure.

In any case, the fictional details don't matter. It's Roberts yet again pumping up Megatron as better than the rest, and I'm Tired of it.

<Ultra Magnus> Grimlock, for just once in your life, DON'T SMASH!

 

I like the implication that the Functionist Council has lost members either to rebellion or by killing anyone who seems to even slightly question the Big Plan, such that they're now down to... 7 dudes? 

 

Confirmed: the Lost Light - 5 miles tall, something like 15 miles long -- is just a regular Cybertronian ship, dwarfed by the likes of the Worldsweepers.

This was pretty good from a dramatic standpoint.  The big reveal landed well and I did crack up at Megatron's new "fusion cannon" actually being a giant toolset.

 

I'm unsure how well the reveal will age with me though... Roberts has pulled the "guy who secretly used to be someone else" card perhaps one or two times too many.

 

But right now, I was pretty satisfied with this issue.  I do hope the battle against Functionist Primus isn't shuffled aside too quickly though.

Yeah; I quite liked the implication that the Functionists kept eliminating members who went you know, guys, turning our planet into a animatronic graven image of our god might be a mite too far.
