*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!!!

@  -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.

It's solid non-articulated plastic, so you should be fine there.

Good to know, thanks.

Think I'm in trouble -- got two more, and have another three on the way.

Really wishing I hadn't missed out on the Filmation sub.

Is Dactus's armour typical? Took me ages to get the blasted thing together, and next time I looked both sides had popped open again. Is there a trick, or am I just unco?!

I haven't had any issues with his armor separating.  He's currently on display too.

Try heating it up for 30-45 seconds with a hairdryer before tabbing it together. It might help. Or it'll make it too soft to hold and you'll have to wait for it to cool again.

Well, my first three MOTUC figures were random dudes who looked cool. But these ones activate the nostalgia drive spectacularly. 

 

5lysTXN.jpg

 

Extendar was... maybe it isn't accurate to say "one of my favourite" vintage figures, but certainly one that left an impression. I could never shake the feeling that he just didn't really match the MOTU aesthetic. But his action feature was fun. Replicating it with partsforming is a bit of a pain, but it still ends up looking fantastic. I am wildly in love with this figure, especially after just having reread the mini-comics he was in. Now I just have to find a reasonably priced Dragstor for him to arch-nemesise with. 

 

As for Teela... well, obviously, this isn't the version of her that most people would choose. But the original DC books are my earliest MOTU memories so this works for me.

It doesn't hurt that she's the version that's the least expensive to acquire right now.

Oh, yeah. Your choices with Teela are "affordable but not representative of the iconic look", "stupidly expensive", or "looks like Point Dread Teela". 

 

BGT is the obvious winner unless one is wealthy!

 

Which I wish I was, because man -- this line. As a kid my favourite figures were probably Fisto, Stinkor and the Sorceress. I'd love to grab their MOTUC counterparts but  I don't fancy paying their current value.  :o

So annoyed that I didn't jump on the sub. This Filmation line is going to be amazing.

I just really can't believe how great he is. No way am I missing the Filmation sub next year. I'll have to pay hideous aftermarket prices for this year's figures, so I'll probably skip a couple, but after that I am in. Luckily I have no interest in Evilseed. 

 

The "Classics aesthetic" is great and obviously the Horsemen do fantastic work, but this Filmation stuff takes it to another level. I just want to get one of those Skeletors and lick it all day. Whereas the previous MOTUC Skeletors just aren't up my alley at all, and the one that I'd be keen on, NA, is too far away from the show's look for me to bite. The Club Grayskull version does not appear to have that problem!

You ARE new to this. Soon you'll learn to give up your love of the figures and start complaining endlessly about the new ankle joints like the rest of the fandom.

Ha! One thing I'm DETERMINED to do is spend THE REST OF MY LIFE saying

 

FOR GOD'S SAKE THE ANKLES AREN'T THAT BAD

 

What I'm less sure of at this point is whether the Thundercats sub will alter my willingness to make subsequent pacts with Matty and DR.

Speaking of demonic pacts, as long as you log on ASAP when the day-of-sale figures go up, you probably won't have to pay aftermarket prices for the Filmation figures. You will have to pay Digital River shipping charges, though.

Good point, I keep forgetting that theoretically that's a possibility. I shudder to think what time I might have to set my alarm for given that I'm in Australia!

 

And re: my last post, lest I upset any ankle-haters... I don't mean to be dismissive of anyone's distaste for said ankles, that's a valid opinion, but speaking for myself personally the "bad" ankles don't bother me any more than any of the other hideous articulation points. Let's just all love each other. 

 

I know it's an issue that arouses much fury. But surely we can all agree that at this point, we're better off bitching about King Hiss!

I'm still undecided on this. If I buy it, it'll just be to support MotU. The Filmation cartoon is my least favorite thing about the franchise.

Finally managed to nab myself a cheap Draego-Man. Can't believe I had to watch ebay for half a year to find an auction that did not go over 75$... how much did these cost originally before scalpers bought them off Mattycollector?
Pretty good toy, love the scales on the arms/legs and how the wings are on joints too. The head is straight out of D&D, pretty cool. He is even balanced well enough to stand without relying on his tail for support.

He was $25 USD before shipping I believe.  So $35 after he shipped or so.
