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. ;)

I tried... but it just wasn't that good. The comics were better.

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)

I’m also sad Cyberverse has no season four.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

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

I'll agree with you on that.

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

@  -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)

So I've really cut down the number of comics I read. I pick up New Mutants mainly for Wolfsbane. I have to say I'm pretty disappointed. 7 issues in and she's barely been more than a background character. That much I can understand. The first arc simply wasn't about her.

But I can only think of three times when she's had anything to say. First issue was a generic "I'm okay with being alive." The latest issue has her licking two different sentient orbs and basically saying "okay I love you bye bye."

Do they just not know how to write Rahne? Because she's seriously the only reason I'm picking this series up. If this is the best I can expect from her, I'm not sure how long I'm gonna keep it going.

...I'm not sure, but is this a Drew Barrymore with a bowling ball reference?  It must be a reference to...something, surely?

 

And given that the book has a skit where they hand-wave away skipping two issues worth of story to finish up this arc, I'm thinking they're trying to make this the Justice League International of the current X-Men line.  I mean, they have their own Booster and Beetle and even set up what could be a KooeyKooeyKooey Island reference.  I don't think deep character work is going to happen in this series.

 

Not sure how I feel about dumping all the "young" X-Men other creative teams aren't using into one book.   I mean, some of these people haven't been all that "young" in decades.  Lumping them all together feels...a little lazy, sort of.  I guess it gives you enough characters that you could do just about anything you like, though.  I'll admit, the book made me chuckle.

 

But, yeah, Rahne...Rahne's been though a lot.  I don't blame them for not being sure what to do with her.

I'm glad I jumped off at issue two by the way this looks. I've only really got passing familiarity with the cast as is. While I was too young to read the original New Mutants run I knew of the characters primarily through my knowledge of X-force, X-factor, and GenX in the 90's. And really the only one I have more than passing knowledge of is Cannonball due to him graduating to the X-men around the Onslaught era when I actually got to read X-men more than a few issues here and there. Everyone else has been through title osmosis over the years as they filtered through the main X books. Chamber I'm a bit more familiar with as his whole blown away chest thing was kind of fascinating to me and I've seen him rotate though different books here and there. In truth I'd actually rather focus on the younger groups like Rockslide, Dust, and the mid 2000's School kids.

Of the New Mutants I'm probably most familiar with Magik because of her friendship with Kitty. Even when she was primarily in New Mutants she still showed up quite a bit in the regular X-Men book. Then of course there was the Legacy Virus.

I was never to big into X-Factor when Wolfsbane was on the team or X-Force when Cannonball was on it.

But I do know Rahne a lot from when she was with Excalibur and then Wolverines X-Force team. Then I read a bit when she went back to X-Factor.

So I know a bit about Rahne. That up there is not her.

I did read Generation X back in the day. But I never really did pay must attention to Chamber and Mondo never really did get as much screen time as the others,

So I'm mostly just irked about Rahne.

The Hickman Penned issues have been horrendous, I liked it at first but this whole "This is the wacky book" esthetic fits more in with Deadpool and not an X-men offshoot, honestly the tone is so jarring that is clashes with the other Dawn of X books...

 

That said all the issues written by Ed Brisson are fantastik.

 

Kick the Hick(man)!

She was de-aged during the Inferno crossover. She died from the legacy virus as a separate event. We later learned she was infected deliberately by her brother Mikhail.

I only read bits and pieces of her resurrection. Like there was an alternate version of her still in Limbo that wasn't the same as the one who got de-aged who was quite a bit more evil than the Illyana we knew but then by the time I got back into x-men years later she was just like the good guy we knew and loved.

I'll need someone else to explain that one to me, whether she got a hold of her soul stones or there was some sort of Infinite Crisis event.

Im not sure about the specifics anymore. I remember that she was goading Pixie into creating her own Soulsword when she first popped back up but I cant for the life of me remember what exactly turned her good again. Shes been back for nearly a decade now and been used quite a bit in the X books. I just lose track of some of these characters in the middle of all the different books.

Like Doug, Douglock, Cypher.... I dont know if him and Warlock are separate entities, hes absorbed warlock, or what else. And what made Nate Grey go all mutant messiah after hanging with them a few years back?

And hey newest issue of X-men blurs the Douglock line some more with a page..... Though it kinda cleared up one idea about depowered mutants and how they are going about repowering them while also making some sense of some of the Powers/House of X ideas that popped up in the future storylines.

So it seems Rahne brought home a fun little egg that is causing trouble in the main X book. 😄
