Eh. It had a few ideas that could've been interesting. They just never went anywhere because it was easier to have Megatron brainwash everyone.

@  Nevermore : (05 June 2020 - 07:41 PM)

Energon's biggest problem is that it was made.

@  Paladin : (05 June 2020 - 05:15 PM)

remember when Energon had to switch animation styles because their CGI models were completely incapable of expressing emotions ?

@  Thundercrack... : (05 June 2020 - 04:42 PM)

And what was done to Demolisher to a lesser extent.

@  Thundercrack... : (05 June 2020 - 04:34 PM)

Energon's biggest problem is what it did to Starscream.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 04:00 PM)

I mean, they took all of that and the series is still dull enough to use as a sleep aid, so....

@  wonko the sane? : (05 June 2020 - 02:46 PM)

It's a food source, a weapon and so unstable that looking at it funny makes it explode. If energon is boring, blame the writers not the element.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 02:17 PM)

Energon's big problem is that it's boring.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 June 2020 - 01:48 PM)

They dubbed reaction shots and running scenes in the first two UT shows with "huh?" and grunts. very annoying.

@  Sabrblade : (04 June 2020 - 06:10 PM)

Watch it in Japanese with English subs. Karyuudo did all that work for us so that we could. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (04 June 2020 - 06:08 PM)

I tried... but it just wasn't that good. The comics were better.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 June 2020 - 04:07 PM)

I didn't even watch Armada when it originally aired.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 June 2020 - 01:52 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

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.

Ya, Red Swoop isn't an imaginative name, insert jokes, but I mean... you don't think the packaging is *actually* going to say "Red Swoop", right? I'm sure the packaging will just say "Swoop". "Red Swoop" just being product information/placeholder name.

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.

More like 2007 Movie Deluxe Jazz and Target exclusive G1 deco Jazz. Or Voyager Starscream and Target exclusive G1 deco/new head Starscream.

(Both Scrapmetals were still released under the same general retail assortment, and the BW Transmetal II Prowl and Dinobot redecos were even sold under the same product code number and UPC, which made them running change variants.)

Seibertron is now claiming (no cited source, so one assumes a supplier company) that the next "Select Series" figure will be a redeco of Siege Megatron in the unreleased Combat Hero colors from Generation 2. These figures are to be available from specialty stores and online stores similarly to May Mayhem Quickslinger, Brake-Neck, and Groove, packed in cases of 24.

I may go for it, especially if it lacks the 'dirt deco'. 

 

Except I'm having a Monty Python flashback.

He would go so well with Machine Wars. Purple Hero Megatron has been my main Megatron for a while, and he's great, but his Rude Dog triangle texture doesn't mesh with MW Soundwave and Starscream.

I want the Titans Return Megatron mold in green G2 colors in addition to the existing LG63 Hero colors!

If you think about it, Sakamoto Hayato-sensei might have featured that design in Legends after getting to see some internal Hasbro files. There were persistent rumors of two canceled boxsets, after all, and a green Voyager Megatron would thematically pair well with Laser Prime.

It's be nice if Swoop had a toy head.

Back in the days when I had hope these would be shuffled into Unite Warriors, I was dismayed by Hasbro doing blue Swoop. Little did I know that up until this announcement that he'd be the only Swoop.

Stepper without a Targetmaster is kind of lame, and that price point means he won't have one.

Still, gives me more options for Elita Infinite and Infernocus.

Maybe Hasbro will eventually make Stepper/Ricochet's Targetmaster as a Battlemaster in Siege?

 

 

Stepper without a Targetmaster is kind of lame, and that price point means he won't have one.

 

you could always buy an extra battle master and paint him ;)

 

Or that. That too.  :D 

 

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.

 

I assume by Hoist you mean the unreleased Hoist from Thrilling 30! Trailcutter, but Landfill...​WWWWHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTT?!?!?!?!

Nope. There was some talk about them taking the Trailbreaker tooling from Combiner Wars and making a Hoist from that. As for Landfill, he would've been a redo for Devastator.

 

(And Demolishor would've been CW Onslaught with a new head, just so ya know.)

I've been using Wreck Gar as Elita's final limb for the past few weeks but I guess I'll get Ricochet. I've never picked up any other version of him and I actually like this mold in every mode except arm mode. No need for Red Swoop, however.
