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.

I definitely would've gotten Red Swoop over Blue Swoop just for cohesive combiner color purposes, but too late.

I know there's no mention on the site but I wonder if these will come with Prime Masters.

 

Edit: Wait never mind, the Throne of Primes Primal PMs are exclusive to the set, so if anything it'd be clear versions of two shelf warmers.

If Red Swoop had gotten an original new name or character I'd be sold in an instant. As just a toy-based recollor... eh, maybe... if the look speaks to me.

-ZacWilliam, I might sell it to myself if I imagine Swoop was once a two-headed robo-pterosaur like movie Strafe and then was accidentally split by some weird McGuffin of the week Superman-style into Red Swoop and Blue Swoop... that would do it. I really need some fictional effort on Hasbros part to sell my things like this.

Heck, if it's toy based Swoop then you can still pretend he's a two headed robo-pterosaur.

Welp, hopefully these will be as plentiful as the Amazon exclusives because I need that Ricochet for Elita-1nfinite.

 

As for Red Swoop? Maybe pre-mutation Ravenus? But then again current Swoop is already in Ravenus colors so maybe this is Swoop and regular PotP Swoop is Ravenus?

Sweet. Now Elita and Inferno don't have to share limbs.

Elita, Firestar, Moonracer, Jazz and Ricochet

Inferno, Alpha Bravo, Rook, Wreck-Gar, and one of the Swoops.

Now just give me four more Decepticon limbs so Starscream and Cyclonus don't have to share.

PLEASE!

-ZacWilliam, Ravenus makes sense for a Swoop rename, and Divebomb might be a fun option. It's not one hundred percent applicable but I'd also love "Ravenspar" to get reused.

A TFW2005 user brought up a tantalizing if unlikely idea: perhaps one day in a similar fashion Hasbro could end up releasing the Ironfist version of the Combiner Wars Rook mold.

Y'know for that matter, the unreleased Hoist, Demolishor, and Landfill toolings would also be nice.

Were there any sketches or pictures of these? I've seen the Demolishor one but I've never seen the toolings for Ironfist, Hoist and Landfill.

Hoist I KIND of know from the SG story but I don't know if it was a funpub head or an actual tooling.

We've never seen photos or anything of them, no, we just have the testimony of people who learned about them while working with Fun Pub (and the SG comic art in the case of Rook's Brawl/Ironfistclad head and Trailbreaker's Hoist head). They're all reportedly built-in pretools.

Unlike his fellow Dinobots, Red Swoop does not find revelry in destruction or fighting. In fact he disdains those things and often only follows his brethren so that he can attempt to undo their chaos. Swooping over the red flames left in their wake, he unleashes his water tanks to douse the blaze. He then finds nearby lakes or other bodies of water to refill with a giant gulp of his beak-like mouth.

Red Swoop finds more suitable companionship with Inferno and his troop of rescuers, and has adopted the red from their color scheme as part of his own. While Grimlock japes and derides by saying it makes him look even more like a Dinobot, Red Swoop denies the assertion.

Acknowledging Red Swoop's dedication, Inferno on occasion invites him to form the position of left arm when the rescuers form their combined mode.

I do like the idea of a black/white/gold Jazz mold if that's what Ricochet is, as it would fit with my Starscream team (which at the moment is SG/Gold Starscreams for arms, 'Smokeout' Jazz as a leg, and I'm looking for another).  Having the arms and legs of a combiner semi-match would be a new one for me.

I'm still wanting my Monster Pretenders / Dinoforce retools.

 

I would be extremely excited about Red Swoop were I going to buy a Swoop.

 

(Volcanicus, Randy, unless your Infernocus is extremely misshapen.)

 

Nah, I meant Infernocus.  As much as I don't want to give one of them a Dinobot limb, now that there is an extra I will likely put one with them.

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.

I love Ricochet and am glad to be getting him. (That was going to be a pretty involved custom).

 

But I JUST made a red Swoop (from the KO, sure, but...)
