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)

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.

@  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.

@  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.

@  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)

so the final season starts this friday.

i thought i would start this thread, as the semi-official BSG thread for the rest of the show.

so far, we have the return of Kara, Baltar being saved and made into a religious figure, and the reveal of the Three of the final five. THE CHIEF IS NOT ONE OF THEM. i dont care what the music hints at, there has to be some other reason. Anders i could see, as well as Roslins new aide, and MAYBE tigh, but never the chief. NEVER.

predictions, comments, curses... lets hear 'em.

Four of the final five, you mean? The Chief is DEFINITELY a Cylon. Also, maybe put SPOILER on this so people who haven't seen season two's ending don't get upset.

Anyway, we know Baltar's not the last one, so it's gonna be one of the Adamas. PERIOD.

That reveal was actually quite disappointing. It is depressing that they had to turn to a Russo-esque "ultimate swerve" to keep our interest.

the reveal sucked, yes.

the final Cylon is going to be someone none of us are going to expect. it would be awesome if it was Zarek, and it turned out the new show took place years after the first one. "this has all happened before, it will happen again" anyone?

I doubt it could be one of the Adamas because Cylons have implanted memories of a human childhood and I doubt they could convince family members that a robot was their sibling/parent/child.
And the chief's without a doubt a cylon imo.
I need to rewatch that finale, was unsure how I felt about the reveal at the time.
This Friday though? Can't wait!

IMO, the 'Final 5" are boxed AI's which have inhabited the people we saw. It doesn't make sense for Tyrol, as that would mean his baby was a messiah and that he and boomer banging back in season one was pointless. leoben wouldn't let anyone near his Kara if he could help it, so Anders is not likely a real cylon. Tigh, flat out can;t be, as he was alive and active long before the technology was available, and thus far no Cylons have "replaced" "real" people. Tori, yea she can be one.

I say the 5 AIs exist as a "ghost in the human machine" idea, moving from person to person to manipulate them against the rest of the Cylons.

The fact that who the final five were hadn't been planned from the beginning, and that their identities were only something RDM and co. came up with while plotting out season 3, really cheapens it for me. The reveal was too gimmicky and sensationalist, and doesn't really make much sense. I think that was the shark-jump of this show. Honestly, between that and the absolutely horrendous airing delays, i'm not really that hopeful about this season. I'll still watch it, hoping i'm wrong though.

My theory is that the fifth Cylon is......Commander Adama's wife.
That makes Lee (and Zack) hybrids, gives us some nice conflict drama about Bill having been involved with a Cylon, and doesn't really take anyone else out of play. (which I think is a problem with what they've done, took too many main characters out of play as cylons)
Doesn't explain kara though.

Remember, the D'Anna cylon (Lucy Lawless) met the final cylon (presumably #1) in one of the story arcs in last season, and recognized it (Saying something like "Forgive me, I had no idea") - My guess is that the final cylon is someone we know, that she's had an obvious, on-screen interaction with. Who that is, I don't know. Since I havent seen the series in awhile, I don't remember this, but did she have any on-screen tiffs or fights with someone (aside from the other cylons) ?

That's my thinking too. The way the other Cylons talk about them, they're more advanced. The existing Cylon models can only download to their model shell. A Six does not download to a Sharon or vice versa. A logical step above that would be to be able to download to anything with the capacity to hold them.

This kind of feeds into my theory about what happened to Six and Baltar during the nuclear explosion. Radiation alters their ability to function and download, which was also suggested in the original premiere. Six's download was altered by the radioactive blast, which accidentally passed through Baltar and inadvertently "swapped" those parts of consciousness which could be considered binary, which is why each of them has their own pooka of the other. And is also why the final five could hide in *anyone*, ie: the formats are compatible. icon-hotrod.gif

There are a myriad of #6's and such, each similar in personality, but also each suprisingly unique as we've discovered. I have a feeling the final five are single entities. There's one of each of them, no more. It might be why the Cylons made no more of them and fear them. They have none of the boundaries that the existing Cylons do.

Was it explicitly stated that they are Cylons? I thought they just reached that conclusion because they could hear the music in their heads.

She could have also been apologizing to Tigh, since the Cylons ripped his eye out.

Actually, you don't see anything about Tigh's back story until after the Cylon War when he first meets an aged Adama in a bar. He says he was a Viper pilot, but you don't know that for sure. Also, during the episode 33, Tigh shows less signs of Fatigue that Adama similar to how Sharon did. Not exactly what they had in mind, but it does support the theory that Tigh is a Cylon. His hatred for Cylons could also be part of his programming, as the final five seemed to be at conflict with the others.

They said that all five are definitely Cylons, so now it's just who is the sixth? I am betting that it is Baltar's Lawyer and he is this generation's Count Iblis.

I think it was dumb that Tyrol is a Cylon but I'm waiting to see where they go with that story.

Anyone here seen the "last Supper" pic? It's a teaser for the new series and they accidentally let slip that no one in the pic who isn't already known to be a Cylon will be the final Cylon. If that's true, then it's officially NOT Roslin, Lee, Starbuck, Admiral Adama, or Baltar.

I hope it's either Zarak or Zack, myself.
