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)

Chris I have a small request for you.  Once you're done watching Neo, can you do a video on your channel on the basics of Heinrad?

I feel the manga needs to be translated first so Chris has a better handle on that version of Heinrad.
 
 
;)

 

 

LOL, that I'm definitely not promising on happening any time soon.  I already have people requesting stuff like Q Transformers, Beast Wars Reborn etc...  I wish I had more time on hand to translate everything.

Just finished episodes 9, 10, and 11. While 9 still felt like a dud to me, 10 and 11 were both a vast improvement. Both had legit moments of comedy that got me laughing a lot, and that final escape climax of 10 was actually daring and exciting.

 

11 was especially neat in how it gave us, I think, the first ever appearance of an actual toddler Transformer. Any other young TFs of the time were either more like teenagers or like preteens at the youngest. Child Longrack was definitely like preschooler or, at most, a Kindergartner.

 

And Old Man Break said that he was aged up "a few hundred thousand years." This, combined with Child Longrack, would certainly make for some interesting additions to the Transformer life cycle section of this article.

 

 

EDIT: I forgot about the Dinoforce's children from the Victory manga, so we'll just consider Child Longrack to be the first toddler Transformer seen in animation.

I was always kind of under the impression that Maximals and Predacons weren't as long-lived as their ancestors, seeing as how 300 years is a big enough psychological gap for them to treat the events of the Great War as some kind of Arthurian legend; this seems to confirm that, at least somewhat?

Well, that's less about how long the Maximals/Predacons live and more about how the Autobots/Decepticons entered the realm of myth and legend in a mere 300 years.

 

@kary:

 

I've finished the first 2/3rds of the series and it was about like I expected. "Disappointment" is too strong of a word -- I watched the tfcog dubs years ago (they reached ep. 10 or so?), so I knew the gist of the early episodes was "Find the thing!" Part 2's new toy of the week section is entertaining. As a fan of Uprising, I was surprised and pleased to see Crazybolt and Bazooka were introduced together. For some reason, I had a belief that Bazooka, Killer Punch and Hardhead were regular cast members later on, and that Survive led a team that included Sharpedge, Randy, and Bump. Maybe that happens in the final third, but it was good to learn otherwise.

 

Neo suffers from the general problem of having a small group of characters defined by a single trait each. Original BW could be a small group because there was some depth to their interactions with each other, and even some character growth. Original G1 worked with one-note characters because there was a large enough group that they swapped out each episode, and it didn't feel repetitive. "Microbots" had the rough and physical Brawn learning to respect the skills of the studious Perceptor, which was cool...but six episodes in a row of those two playing off each other in the same manner would have become dull.

 

The Neo Maximals are growing together as a team as time passes, which is worth mentioning, but their individual personalities are suffering as a result. As Break learns to be less impulsive and Stampy less cowardly, they're losing the only defining traits they really had. And because of the language barrier (for me at least) it gets harder to tell them apart, especially when the animation isn't showing on -screen who's speaking. I just finished the second clip show, and I really had to pay attention to understand whether the clips were talking or if it was a voiceover from Heinrad or somebody else, because I can't recognize most of their individual voices.

 

Still, it has been a great experience, and I'm glad to finally fill this hole in my Transformers experience.

I definitely agree with you on many of your points.  I think because Taka-chan and I watched these episodes over and over we got used to the voices, so identifying the characters in the clip shows wasn't too hard.  LOL

 

On the point of the Cybertrons/Maximals growing as a team, yes, it happens very subtly, but you can see as the series goes on that they've got each other's back.  Characters like Stampy learn to shine with other skills other than needing courage to take on powerful opponents.  The last 3rd you'll see some additional changes with the Gung-Ho crew as well as a few secrets revealed.  

 

In terms of writing, Neo will never beat the original Beast Wars that we got here in the West.  Naturally it's because the market for the series is quite different and the writing is aimed at a younger crowd.  Still though, it's an interesting take on the franchise and putting a conclusion on the G1 timeline which (at least to me) felt satisfying.

Well considering this is now a sequel to Beast Wars Returns, we can assume they didn't have complete knowledge of the previous generation due to Beast Megatron's virus that wrecked the planet.  I guess we can all make up our own assumptions though.  :)

Episode 25 - 28

 

Holy...S**T.

 

I mean, damn.

 

This series should be in the dictionary, under "tonal whiplash".

 

The Blentrons are genuinely menacing, and the musical cues added to their scenes are fantastic. They just devastate EVERYBODY, even Bio Convoy and Magmatron.

 

And Magmatron? Magmatron. Is. Not. Fooling. Around! He's willing to kill his entire team, and himself, to prevent the return of Unicron. Collecting Angolmois capsules seemed like a bored hobby to him up until now, but seeing the Blentrons capture his full attention is eye-opening. I wish I could've seen this series back when it was intended, but DW and the UT diluted the idea of Unicron's return to a "What, Again?!?"

 

Even now, though...this last third of the series is seriously impressive!

Coelagon is thousands and thousands of years old, so Japan at least had already established that Predacons could be very long-lived.

I think this all comes down to how you define a "year" to a Cybertronian. If it's Earth years (and why would it be?), 300 is a short time to forget such a major event as an multi million year war.
But if we're talking Cybertronian years, aka a vorn, it's a much longer time. 1 vorn is equal to 83 Earth years, so 300 vorns is 24, 900 Earth years. And don't forget that BW2 and BWN take place an unspecified amount of time even farther into the future after BW/BM.

This time scale could also help paint a picture of why Gaia, aka future Earth, is apparently devoid of human life. Sometime in the almost 25000 years either something wiped us out, or caused us to move off world.

One Cybertronian year in the Beast Era is a Stellar Cycle, which is 400 Earth days.

 

And, honest question, where exactly was it confirmed that a Vorn was the orbital period of Cybertron? (especially since the originator of the term, the Marvel Comics, explicitly declared its Cybertron to have been knocked out of its original orbit around Alpha Centauri and sent flying through space with no orbital period to determine its year-span anymore)

So just because it got knocked out of orbit they would abandon their time scales?
Hypothetically assuming we didn't die, if the same thing happened to Earth I'm pretty sure we'd still use the standard 12 month, 365 day year as our time frame because that's all we know.

Where was the 400 earth days thing stated?

When did they ever confirm that "Vorn" is not only "Cybertronian years" but that every time a Beast Wars character talks about "years" they specifically meant "Vorns"? Searching on TFWiki, the only time that term was used in a Beast Era context was in Wreckers Finale and when Beast Wars Sourcebook gives the definition.

Larry DiTillio. He gave Ben Yee a bunch of Beast Era time unit conversions that Ben put on the old version of his site years ago.

Cybertrons have their own lexicon for time, as follows:
  • A Nano-Klik is approximately a second.
  • A Cycle is approximately a minute
  • A Mega-Cycle is approximately an hour
  • A Deca-Cycle is approximately 30 days.
  • A Stellar Cycle is approximately a year.
The Cybertron Stellar cycle is equivalent to about 400 EARTH DAYS, though the standard cybertron day is 20 Earth hours. Months and weeks have no meaning to Cybertrons, though they sometimes use the terms on other worlds (borrowed from their experiences on Earth).

The only ones missing from here are Milli-Cycle (an unknown measure of time mentioned once in Part 2 of "Coming of the Fuzors") and Solar Cycle (introduced in Beast Machines as a Cybertronian day, which DiTillio stated to be 20 Earth hours; mathematically, one Stellar Cycle being 400 Earth days would make it be 480 Solar Cycles).

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.

When did they ever confirm that "Vorn" is not only "Cybertronian years" but that every time a Beast Wars character talks about "years" they specifically meant "Vorns"? Searching on TFWiki, the only time that term was used in a Beast Era context was in Wreckers Finale and when Beast Wars Sourcebook gives the definition.

I always chalked that up to translation. The term "years" was used for our benefit, as the characters would be speaking Cybertronian.

I see it like how on Star Trek, when a scene takes place on a Klingon ship with nothing but Klingons in the scene, in universe they would be speaking Klingon, but since 99% of the audience doesn't, the actors speak English for our benefit.

That's how I see Beast Wars, the characters are speaking Cybertronian, but we hear English. Especially in light of the fact that apparently the Earth sector has been declared off limits, so no Cybertronian has been there in quite some time. Why would they speak one of Earth's languages, let alone use it's terminologies?
