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.

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.

@  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 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)

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

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

So, my first Grapple's pegs broke, so I ordered a replacement from Amazon. The pegs are even tighter on this one, with stress marks from the first transformation showing already.
 
Well, I think I found a relatively easy fix. I used a metal peg from a piece of furniture that just happened to be 5mm in diameter, and a very tight fit. So I used that one with a pair of pliers, put it into the pegholes on Grapple's feet and turned it around until it became loose enough to easily turn it with my fingers. Now the pegs go in and out with little resistance. Much easier than sanding down the pegs, and less obtrusive unless you deliberately look inside the pegholes.

Also should they be flipped out for vehicle mode or flipped in?

ER Primes knee flaps are a holdover from some of the Stege Prime tooling thats in him. So they don't really serve any purpose for him, since ER Primes legs transform differently to Stege Prime.

Bought Ironworks last week, and... While I was intrigued by the concept, I wasn't impressed by the execution. Either there is a design flaw, or a manufacturing fault, and I can't attach the folded-up left robot arm onto the top of the communication tower mode to complete it. The hole is unevenly shaped, not circular, so the peg from the chest area doesn't attach. Rather annoyed about that.

ER Prime's leg flaps do fold out in truck mode, they tab into the bottom of the elbows, make it sturdier.

I dremeled it out, and now it works, but yes, that's the sort of thing you'd think would be caught early as I haven't heard of anyone YET who had that posthole work properly.

Not the first time I was wrong.  Though the rules of the internet being what they are, I think I am legally required to say I was still right and reality has it wrong.

 

Edit: I now wonder if it's a batch thing, I got mine comparatively early, and I saw a lot of early reviews with the same issue.  Maybe a later run fixed it?

I wish there was a more cost effective retail item for roads and little base components. 21 to 24 dollars for the deluxes and 8 dollars for one road piece defeats the purpose. Just some cheap hotwheels roads in grey with clips on either end would be nice.

I couldn't get it to work either, so I just plugged that arm into the side of the main vertical frame and used it as a offset tower smokestackk thing. Could probably plug a custom radar-dish-windmill thing there if and when (I'll have to make one or find a way to repurpose the G1, as Shapeways isn't an option).

I made this out of a propeller I had in my parts bin (not sure what it came from, it was found in a yard sale box).  Interestingly, Ironworks in 'upright' base mode is the perfect size to set on top of Omega Supreme.

propeller looks to be from a Powercore Combiners Searchlight or one of his redecos. but i dont recall any of them having red rotors.

Searchlight's rotors are grey,  Windburn's are gold, and Choppermaster's are shiny silver.
