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

: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.

@  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)

@  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)

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.

Figure I'd make a thread to discuss the comic by those who read it. It's going to be an 8 month or so ride so I figured we could have it all in one central spot.

I'm not going to spoil it but I want to throw in my 2 cents

Blackest Night #1? HOLY HUG. WOW. I figured it'll be like a rollercoaster. You buckle in and the first issue would you get excited going up the top and it'd give you a hot tease for the next issue. Hug. That. A dozen or so pages in and you get hit with a shovel. In the face. Repeatedly. Geoff Johns Hugging Rules

I flipped through it at the comic shop...didn't buy it because the comic shop got screwed over by Diamond on the Black Lantern rings so I'm just going to wait for the Hardcover to come out. What a way to open an issue though...I knew this was going to be awesome. This should make up for the debacle that was final crisis last summer.

I have chills going down my spine. It's not often a comic does that for me.

Wow.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Ralph and Sue are the best Black Lanterns ever. The moment they were revealed to be Black Lanterns, that's when chills began.

And GODDAMN. When HIGHLIGHT to view:
J'onn told both Hal and Barry that they shouldn't be alive...better moment than the entire Sinestro Corps war.

Marvel's gonna have to step up with Cap: Reborn.

Edited by Internet Jesus, 15 July 2009 - 05:04 PM.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

NO, from what I understand, anybody who has died can be Black Lantern, hero, civilians, villains, aliens......... everybody. NO heart beat, no problem.... BOOM black lantern (hey atleast they are not picky)

As for the comics itself................ GREAT SCOT BATMAN icon-ironhide.gif icon-ironhide.gif icon-ironhide.gif
I knew Blackest NIght is gonna be a great ride and on the 1st issue, it started out as a big roller coster WHOOOOO
Keep them comming DC (I might actually stop by the blood bank to excahnge blood for money) icon-fire.gif icon-fire.gif icon-fire.gif

My Prediction:
HIGHLIGHT to view:
Noticed when the hawk's heart turn to dust, the black ring's power lever went up 0.01%(that's how they re-charge the black rings)....... I think this will become a major story point. Nobody knows what will happened when a black ring get's to be 100% charge....I'm thinking Armagedon powers

PLUS: the freebee black ring is great. all i need now is to remember the black oath

do we have to type with spoiler tags?

there's a warning on the topic about spoilers.

Either way, Ralph and Sue were super creepy as Black Lanterns. I like how he has her wrapped up in his hand.

I'm sure the only way to kill a Black Lantern is to pump them full of life, thus how everyone will come back to life.

No, I don't think spoiler tags are needed in this thread. I'll edit the title to make it perfectly clear.

As for Sue Dibny, she was of course a ghost detective until this. I wonder if the Black Lanterns just take over the body and warped personality of the person, or if they take over their "soul" as well.

I've been wondering, myself. I'm going to assume such, although seeing the disembodied spirits of Ralph and Sue confront their reanimated corpses could be interesting.

I've also been wondering, how do they (or do they?) deal with dead characters where there's no body? I mean, in the case of Firestorm, there shouldn't have been a body, given the explosive nature of his death, but they've just retconned Ronnie Raymond's grave into existence. Still, I expect it wouldn't be hard to find examples of characters that they wouldn't be able to do that for....

My kooky thought that was since these are basically the anti-lanterns the power level going up is actually them getting weaker.

It would seem that to get to 100% Each ring would have to 'kill' 10,000 people.

I haven't been closely following DC Comics in the last year or so, as much as I loved Blackest Night, there were a couple of things I was hazy on. Bruce Wayne isn't really dead, right? Didn't he get thrown back in time? So, whose body was in his grave? Also, when did Conner come back to life, and when did Pa Kent die????

I'm not convinced it's the killing that's powering the Black rings. It strikes me that, given what Scar said whe she slaughtered the other Oans that it's not life they're consuming with the hearts, but rather emotions.

That would make sense to me because it would set up a nice rivalry. All the other rings are emotionally driven/powered, except green, which is willpower, control over emotions. Green is control, black is cessation, the rest fall before those two.

Bruce Wayne is sorta dead, sorta not. That's the funny thing about the Omega Sanction. The body IS Bruce, but the details remain a mystery. One which may be crucial to the story.

Connor came back to life as a result of the Legion of 3 Worlds story (it took the Birthing Matrix 1000 years to fix him up), and Pa Kent had some troubles with his ticker when Brainiac lobbed a missile at him while Kandor was landing on the North Pole.

Actually, Ronnie was Firestorm without the Professor for several years before Didio decided to kill Ronnie off so that they could introduce Jason....
