@  Maximus Ambus : (30 May 2020 - 02:14 AM)

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.

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)

@  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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

@  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)

@  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)

@  -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

I'm curious, if we really are getting the other stations, what they'll look like color-wise. Ironworks and his construction site were both yellow and gray, but the other three don't really match up (Hot House being the closest).

I'm not that interested in Optimus trailers at this point, I already have one with the 7-Eleven logo on it and nothing can beat that.

Ironically, I love the new MP-44's trailer.  And I usually don't like Optimus's trailers (see MP-4, all the MP-10's, etc).

Earthrise Optimus' trailer is exceptionally boring.

 

By itself.

But there's all those Micromaster bases that split apart and connect to things via 5mm pegs, so that boring empty trailer becomes the perfect platform on top of which you can start piling base blocks to make a pretty nifty new city.

 

Its... gotten me a little tempted. Gotta admit.

So... just putting it in order for myself... the "Construction powerhouse" Micromaster who was Ironworks is now Irontread and has a partner named "Ricon" and the previously unnamed Construction yard/Communication Station is now Ironworks who is his own sentient Transformer who is (according to Hasbro's press release) an "eccentric Communications Expert."

Cool.

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?

It was 35 years between my first Combat Deck and my second, and I only sprung for it when they put the Ghostbusters logo on it, I understand. But in a line with lots of Micromasters and bases I can see why they'd want to make one connection-compatible. I thought Omega's base tower was rather dull but move the rocket to the outside of the tracks, and put Ironworks inside, and now it looks like a heavy industrial complex, especially if you can turn that central tower around so the cargo-bay looking details can face Ironworks.

Ironworks is a communications bay. That red radar dish was most of his base mode's purpose. But I checked his Dreamwave profile, and that says that the communication assignment was something he never wanted, as his passion is building. So I'm glad he got rid of it!

 

I'm so very proud he's following his dream!

Gonna say this right now...I'm getting whatever Battlemasters are released, I'm getting whatever Micromasters are released, Ironworks and any more guys like him are welcome, and I'll probably get that Optimus Prime too, if only for the connectivity between bases.

 

 

I hope this means now that we got a Grapple, we can finally get an updated Hauler after eHOBBY didn't go through with one.

That was the previous Ironworks though, who now goes by Irontread in this toyline. This new Ironworks is an "Eccentric Communications Expert" according to his bio tag-line in the Press release. He'd probably love having the dish.

In my head, Irontread got his base upgraded to a full TF specifically so it could handle all that junk itself and he could Build and Tinker full-time. Easiest way to get it to have your previous responsibilities and work? Hand it your name and everything that went with it. Only now Ricon got assigned there too, and there's a clash of personalities there, and...


-ZacWilliam, Can't say how happy I am now that my wife got me the Micromaster set with Irontread and Ricon when I was planning to pass on it. I love the idea of having this little 3 bot Station team working together.

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.

Aside from the back pack, I expect a few minor changes to make the transformation similar but not quite the same but we have to wait and see.

once again Hasbro proves they are incapable of moving past 1987.

 

Ironworks is from 1989. The Hot Rod Patrol is from 1990. 

 

 

Ironworks isn't an original character? Shoot. I was hoping for an original character.

 

 

If it helps, the original Ironworks was a separate Micromaster from his base, whereas modern Ironworks IS his base (turns into a Deluxe-sized robot). There's a Micromaster Ironworks analogue (with a slightly different name) in the Target 10-pack if you really want the Micromaster to stay separate.

But by at least one point of view, this IS a new character (if nonetheless an obvious homage)....

I'm sure they'll be the colors of the stations. Earthrise Ironworks doesn't resemble the Micromaster besides the colors that the base already had.
