The toys had some good parts. They also had Side Swipe.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

I mean, still addicted to minicons...

Energon and Cybertron WERE boring... and Starscream was just messed up in those shows....

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 07:47 PM)

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.

@  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.

stargirl-dc-universe-logo-1131027.jpeg

 

Kinda surprised we didn't have a thread for this already. But hey, with all the casting news coming out in the last few days, better late than never!

 

Casting recap so far:

Brec Bassinger playing Courtney Whitmore/Stargirl

Anjelika WashingtonYvette Monreal and Christopher James Baker cast in unknown roles

Joel McHale cast as Sylvester Pemberton/Starman

Brian Stapf cast as Ted Grant/Wildcat

Lou Ferrigno, Jr. cast as Rex Tyler/Hourman

Henry Thomas cast as Dr. Charles McNider/Doctor Mid-Nite

 

We also know that Yolanda Montez (the second Wildcat) will be a classmate and friend of Courtney's (which could be the role Anjelika Washington is playing) in the series, and that Pat Dugan/Stripesy will appear in his S.T.R.I.P.E. armor.

 

As a huge fan of Starman and Stargirl, I'm excited to see where this show goes. I trust Geoff Johns on this considering how personal the character is to him. I'm also digging the JSA members they've cast so far, and I hope to see not only more of the classic members (Al Pratt, Wesley Dodds, Jay Garrick, Alan Scott, etc) but some of their successors (Atom Smasher, Damage, Obsidian and Jade, Sandy, and Cyclone come instantly to mind).

 

The one thing that has me scratching my head is Sylvester Pemberton being described as "the Golden Age Starman." While it makes sense to kind of condense and merge the legacy of Starman and the Star-Spangled Kid, I'm holding out hope that Ted Knight will still appear as the original Starman who passed the title onto Sylvester.

That's the second time they've made Pemberton into Starman, they did it in "Smallville" too. I'm almost wondering if they don't want to use Ted Knight because of the name?

Sylvester was still called the Star-Spangled Kid in Smallville, he just also already had the Cosmic Staff and was rocking a very Jack Knight-esque jacket.

 

I get why they want to consolidate and simplify the legacy, I just think it would work just as well to have Sylvester take up the name Starman from Ted and be the second Starman, rather than worrying about other Starmen.

Also, we have some more casting breakdowns which hint at more JSA members and villains.

I disagree. Being on DC Universe allows for some greater creative freedom and a more focused story. Plus, people would want it to be in the Arrowverse and they already botched Stargirl and the JSA in Legends.

Upon relooking at the character breakdowns, I think its pretty clear that "Sean" and "Ali Miller" are in fact Sportsmaster and Tigress (which pretty much confirms that Artemis will be in the show) and "Dr. Draven" is Dragon King. However, I also think it's a fair assumption that since "Scott Weber" is clearly Brainwave, "Matt Kenner" could be Brainwave, Jr.

I don't know Courtney's full history (which presumably has some reboots in it from the New 52 and Rebirth), but there was indeed a time during the pre-New 52 JSA book when Courtney and Billy were... well, at least interested in each other. I don't think it was necessarily official. It caused some difficulty when Billy was in his Captain Marvel form (most JSAers didn't know Marvel's secret identity), and others thought the adult Marvel was behaving inappropriately with the young Courtney (who did know who Billy was). Eventually, they had to break it off due to these difficulties.

Courtney was also involved with Al Rothstein, aka Atom Smasher, for a while. Again, not sure I'd say they were actually dating, but she was certainly interested in him.

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.

We actually got to see the STRIPE at the end.  I almost wasn't expecting that in the first episode.

 

Interesting thing about the Cosmic Staff...

Yeah, and it's probably just that simple.  But, with Geoff Johns on the show's staff, I have to wonder if they'll go a little deeper in the comics lore than the average DC TV show.
