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.

@  -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)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

@  -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)

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

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.

Theres a botbots sticker/data book up for preorder on Amazon. Unclear if this is the same as the ultimate guide book shown at Toyfair or something different but it only contains data on 123 Botbots (probably just Series 1+2 and maybe the baseball and Kikme the soccer ball who were supposed to be in Series 1)

Radio Free Cybertron got one of the Series 2 Botbots Challenge cases and have pics of it and the contents on their Twitter feed. Here's the catalogue/poster included (which fills in a few names we didn't know):

I like how the box art on the big case seems to be drawing Short Edge as a Super Hero with a cape.

Everybody I saw was guessing Grrrr'illa Grimes was a gas container, but no, looking at the catalogue he is 100% Orange Goop hand cleaner.

-ZacWilliam, which is 100% something you buy at that sort of store if you work in a wood or mechanical shop environment.

The big-fisted orange guy is Grrr'illa Grimes, in the Shed Heads. Looks like a big jug of cleaning fluid or something? One of the types that you pump up and then use an attached hose to spray stuff down.

Hashtagz is a repaint of the laptop with what looks like Botbot 'stickers' slapped on :D

I really like Bogus Pocus the magic book, and Rebugnant the insect repellant spray.

Okay then, still need 8-pack Lost Bots info, buuuuut

 

https://docs.google....t#gid=772655682

 

So far, the must-buy packs in Series 2 are...

 

Music Mob w/ Grampiano

Spoiled Rottens w/ Big Cantuna

Spoiled Rottens with Mocklate

Swag Stylers with TP Itch

 

And single-packs Must Turd, Sir Botcha, Ice Sight, The In-Sole, Tropic Guzzlerush, Sandy Man, Javasaurus Rex, King Candyhooves, Sippyberry, Glitchface, Techtonic Sonic, TV Cop, Captain Swoon

 

I'd bet money Hamurai will also be a single-pack-only Bot, as he's one of only two new-mold Lost Bots in that assortment, and Overpack is also in one of the Music Mob sets (the one with Grampiano).

Okay, so the sticker book says it's got 163 profiles.

 

Series 1 & 2 only add up to 161 Bots tho. Buuuuuuuuuuut Kikmee and Strike Four were moved out of Series 1 for some reason or another, so they're likely in the book.

 

And this adds more weight to the Bakery Bytes/Lawn League sets being a store exclusive.

Hmmm:
"BOGUS POCUS - Fantasy book wizard"

There's so many ways to parse that. Is he a robot who fantasizes being a wizard from a book? Or is he the sort of Wizard you find in a Fantasy book? And if the later is he a Harry Potter style wizard or more of a Gandalf? Or is he a DnD style Wizard who needs a spellbook (which he is) to be a wizard?

-ZacWilliam, and would the latter make him actually a Sorceror since the source of his magic is inside him? Is he duel classing?
