@  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.

@  -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.

@  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)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

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

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

As much as I'm not super into a return to Earth modes already. If this netted us a leader class G1 Grimlock. I probably wouldn't complain.

 

Wouldn't a leader class Grimlock now just be the same size and parts count as the POTP one, but with a few guns and a stand that turns into something broadly unnecessary?

How would you like to see other Modular Bases work? Should an Airport Weaponizer take the name Airwave and the Micromaster be Overair (Like it is in the current 10-pack?)

What about Greasepit and Hot House?


-ZacWilliam, I'm cool with it cause it gets us two unique characters with unique names where previously there was 1

Yeah - he wouldn't need to be a Combiner torso which would help quite a bit.

 

Thing is, if they redo Grimlock yet again, then we're back to not having the rest of the Dinobots in a complimentary size. They're already pretty tiny in bot mode now...

It's a foolish dream I know - but all the Dinobots at Leader/Voyager size would be instant buys for me.

I think all the Micromaster's that came with Bases were kinda given names that were based on the larger part of the set, the Base. Some of them don't even make much sense for the MM considered on its own. I remember that being noticeable even as a kid.

-ZacWilliam, It wasn't much of a concern back then I'm sure because who in 89 would have expected both parts to get separate new toys exactly 30 years later.

So apparently the people attending the press event at NYCC aren't allowed to share photos until Monday, which seems a little extreme.

 

Can only assume there was some Earthrise stuff mixed in, 'cause a four-day embargo for Siege Wave 5 would be pretty ridiculous.


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

Marvel head behind a big Headmasters sneezeguard would be my ideal.
Intermediate robot is based on the Zarak toy, like the Transformer sized head guy in Headmasters. Titan Master is Marvel Zarak.

Got the robot modes right. Here's hoping for the giant face.

Also, they aren't making every product for people who buy everything. There should probably be a quality vanilla Optimus Prime on shelves at all times.

What constitutes a "vanilla" Optimus Prime, though? I would have considered something like Classics or CW Optimus to meet that description.

Note for those potentially responding: Aside from both of the toys I just mentioned being clearly G1-based, I have previously stated that I am interested in Earthrise Optimus.

Yeah, the Micromaster was the one with a name getting printed on the front of the box, but the base was the main attraction, so you got Micromasters who were essentially named after their bases. Most of them came out all right, but Hot House, Groundshaker, and Skystalker stand out as having names that really only make sense in the context of their vehicles. Even the Transports aren't immune--Overload and Roughstuff are pretty generic, but Erector and Flattop are clearly named after the crane trailer and the aircraft carrier respectively, rather than the truck and the jet.

That looks almost exactly like my Classics Starscream but bigger. I will need to see more. And more poses to know if I care.

Titan Skorpy confirmed is awesome though. So close to finishing off my set of 87 Decepticons.

We literally really haven't had a half decent, reasonably tall Starscream classics figure. The CHUG one was... okay? But had lots of issues.

 

That actually looks really nice from what we can see. I'm glad I didn't bother with any of the Stege Seekers apart from Redwing.

We had had multiple good G1 Starscreams, but then the fandom figured out it was allowed to be extremely picky and none of them are Exactly Right so now they're all bad.

(Meanwhile the idea of new toys of UT characters gets poopooed because that character's toy from 2005 was Pretty Decent.)

Like ER Prime, I'm wondering (and hoping), that these will become the "peak G1/Sunbow" iterations of the characters, and there won't be a need to iterate anymore. That way, it makes room for characters and ideas that you folk are clamoring for.

 

Everyone wins?
