Ha! Talk about getting away with something!

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 June 2020 - 09:08 AM)

Carnivac was still an evil Decepticon at heart, and no one shot him in the back for it.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 06:52 PM)

*stares at the light switch* .... I see what you did there

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 May 2020 - 01:40 PM)

*hands llittleautobot1218 a light switch* There you go.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 10:53 AM)

I feel a need to lighten up the mood.... ;)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 10:38 AM)

:p

@  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.

@  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)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  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!!!

THE CROWDFUNDING PAGE IS LIVE

https://www.indiegog...ate_edit=true#/


https://www.tfw2005....lpture.1186808/


I thought this might be of interest to quite a few here because well you know what planet it is!!!!  and looks like it will be around $140 shipped so a great price !! the pictures below have the windows picked out on the buildings but on the production version there is a high possability these will not be there

"edit" wouldn't let me link pictures from tfw2005 so will sort them in a couple of hours




the crowdfunding page should be up and running very soon so will post more details when its live but it will be called "Hot Steel Planet Sculpture"


https://www.tfw2005....tarter.1186808/


 

 

I'm starting a new thread for this since it will now be going into mass production. This spot will be reserved for the Kickstarter link when it goes live in a few days.

[ATTACH=full]28494150[/ATTACH]

For those that don't know me (which I'm assuming is most people) I'm a sculptor and Special FX artist for the big theme parks here in Orlando. My primary job is to take images from movies and TV shows and turn them into real, three dimensional objects for the public to enjoy. But sometimes the mouse and the wizard don't always make the attractions we want to see, and so I need to go and do it myself.

And that's how big glowy things like this happen.
[ATTACH=full]28494185[/ATTACH]
Scale reference

This is going to be a limited run done through crowd-funding and will likely be the only time it is available. And while I may be a good sculptor, I am terrible at social media and will need everyone's help to make this happen. If you're on a Facebook, forum or other social media group dedicated to Transformers, please share the news and the Kickstarter link when it becomes active (I'll post it at the top of this thread). As of now we are tentatively scheduled to go live on January 10.

Couple of quick details.
1. This will be a lighted pop-art statue, not a toy.
2. It will come with a display stand (not the same pictured) but will also be wall mountable.
3. The size is a little over 12 inches in diameter by 6 inches deep (allow a few extra inches for the tall buildings).
4. It will be cast in hollow and clear polyresin, lit with LEDs, and include die-cast parts.
5. A mini satellite add-on will be available as one of the crowd funding rewards.
6. Because the prototypes are already done and sent to the factory, we will be able to start production immediately on completion of the crowd funding campaign. Assuming the campaign is a success, these could be delivered as early as July.

Let me know what you guys think and please leave a comment to help keep the thread from getting buried. I'll be posting more information on the rewards, status of the campaign, etc. Also, if you have a wishlist of other things you would like to see us do, please chime in.

You can check out more of the stuff I've made on my portfolio page at http://www.studiooz.org

That's pretty cool but absent a license from Hasbro they're going to stop it.

there's hundreds of transformer third party products out there with no license , this won't be called cybertron when the kickstarter is up and running it will be called "Hot Steel Planet Sculpture"

It doesn't matter what else exists, Kickstarter do not allow IP infringing items like this so it'll be pulled before it ends. They could call it Billybob the metalball, it's still based on something they have no claim to.

he has changed from kickstarter to another crowdfunding platform on advice from someone else :)

also i have seen stuff on kickstarter that have not been flagged for copyright or ip infringing items but the chance is there which is why the crowdfund platform has been changed to something else

I suspect copyright problems could've been avoided if the Unicron head wasn't there.

I mean, the main piece is a big round thing covered in nondescript, vaguely scifi structures.

here's were it gets good tho , in the tfw2005 thread bot sculpter the man behind this has said he is hoping to get enough backing to warrent going to hasbro to apply for a license and then having any future products licensed too
