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.

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

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

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)

 I'm hoping we get at least the main 3 and the coneheads. 

 

Does Hasbro do Coneheads? When was the last time we got a modern and mainstream-ish toy of those dudes? It's been a while hasn't it? We always bring them up when there are new Seekers on the horizon, but do they ever eventuate these days?

 

I mean, one's coming in Cyberverse, if you count that as mainstream-ish.

Okay, he's only a scout, but he's still got more of an alt-mode than others.

Love that his colors are "correct".  Not something that even TakaraTomy got right with their Henkei or United releases (I won't talk about Universe 2.0 Starscream :D - Classics was trying to be different so I like it).



Still looks like it has the wing/arm problem of the Classics mold.

It's been 10 years, but hopefully this is the time.  I'm not going to be throwing out my Classics the minute I find Starscream by any means.  Hell, last time we had to wait 4 years between Starscream  and the last of the coneheads. 

 

As far as that goes, I guess I'm not in a huge hurry.  I wouldn't mind at all if they kept releasing repaints/remolds over the course of the next few mainlines or tossed a few into Selects for a small upcharge.  As long as they get out there somehow.

Hell, I was ready to get rid of my Classics Seekers (at least the main ones) back when the War for Cybertron ones came out.

 

Classics Screamer hasn't been "my" Starscream in 8 years, and yet I still hang onto him, because of the misguided value I place on having one that's the same mold as the more obscure guys I can't replace (Nacelle, Hotlink, etc).

I think there might be enough clearance.

And I believe the wings might be able to pivot back right where the arm cannons are too.

Starscream has so many great colors schemes that I'd prefer to see prior to Ghost Starscream.

  • G2
  • Action Master / Pretender
  • Black eHOBBY
  • MP-3

Not going to count Black Death or any of those other cancelled G2 versions for now.

I almost forgot the random cancelled ones. Those would also be fantastic. I just want an excuse to grow my seeker character selection. Like, I'm an easy sell, but in an era when I can buy 8 components to form a movie Devastator, I need a good reason to buy another version of this character design. I never grabbed the subscription service G2 screamer (I do have ramjet) so that is a noticeable omission.

It wasn't my original idea, I forgot who on this board brought it up, but I wish they'd make a Ghost Starscream that's NOT in clear plastic.  I'd rather have it in Glow-In-The-Dark plastic, as it's both more durable and is something you very rarely see in Transformers toys.  It's color might wind up being 'off' but that could be dismissed with a blurb on the package boiling down to "He's dead, deal with it" and go from there.  I know it's possible, I recently saw a He-Man figure that had been done in a similar way.  If they did come up with a GlowScream I'd buy that in a minute and an extra for my nephew too.

I want this mold as Thundercracker to go with my Siege Starscream. I might have to hold out for his superior Action Master colors. We live in a world where that somehow seems possible.

I hope part 3 of this trilogy is the beast era for a lot of reasons, but one of them is that a big Voyager Jetstorm with a Wrecker Skywarp redeco would round out the trio nicely.

Let's compromise:  Glow-In-The-Dark Transforming Voyager Action Master Thundercracker!  As I understand it, Botcon contemplated it once.  Besides, using that character if the colors wind up clashing badly and the entire concept implodes into a hideous glowing neon mess, no one will notice!

 

Edit: Actually, the more I think of it, the better Action Master Thundercracker would be for a test of a glowing Transformer.  You could literally hide any 'errors' in the deco the unusual plastic colors might cause just by claiming it's what you meant to do in the first place.

Regarding the coneheads, we're in an era where the previous seeker mold just got 7 uses in one year, including the first transforming figures for Ion Storm and Nova Storm, and the first ever figure for Red Wing. And besides the deluxe Insections, Omnibots, and Bumper if you count him, I think they might be the only bots left from the '84-'85 era that haven't gotten any updates in T30/PWT/WfC. If this isn't the time to get a new set of coneheads, I don't know that there ever will be such a time. I'd be shocked if they don't get new figures before WfC is over.

 

Aside from the main six, I'd love to get a welcoming committee set at some point between Earthrise and the third line. A year ago, I never would have even put enough credence toward that idea to put it on my personal TF wishlist. But we're living in a post-Rainmaker/Red Wing world. Instead of wondering whether it's even possible, I'm instead debating the merits of whether they should use the Earthrise mold that's likely to become the new seeker standard, or the Siege mold that would seem to be more appropriate for them.

 

Aside from seekers, we still haven't seen anything about a WfC Frenzy or Buzzsaw yet, right? What do you suppose the odds are that they're being held back to release alongside an Earthrise Soundwave? Now even boxier... somehow.

We didn't get a full set of either Soundwave or Blaster's minions in Titans Return, so there's a chance we won't get the full set for Seigewave.

Cassettes is really where theyve never bothered to complete any sets.

I understand thats pretty hard to do since both Blaster and Soundwave have quite a bit but I think WFC is the only time since G1 we have gotten what I consider the essentials

Which are

Frenzy, Rumble, Ratbat, Buzzsaw, Laserbeak

Rewind, Eject, Ramhorn, Steeljaw

Which is still leaving off quite a bit from G1.

I'm not sure what Earth-Soundwave would turn into now, but I assume if the alt-mode is some sort of box, and Ravage fits IN the box, then regardless of any specific details it can probably just be called "The Internet" on the package and it'll be fine.
