It's a food source, a weapon and so unstable that looking at it funny makes it explode. If energon is boring, blame the writers not the element.

Energon's big problem is that it's boring.

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?

Reports from Toy Fair indicate that there was zero truth to the Jazwares rumors. So that’s a bummer.

No villain figure reveal in the stream, nice color version of that artwork with the Alley-Vipers in their Orange with Blue and the Ninjas wore Red. Nothing else we haven't seen, not a strong reveal tbh.

So if I want these and get the full "TRUE Joe Fan Experience", I'll need to:

Not buy them at retail.

Wait for them to hit ROSS/Marshal/ TJ Maxx to pick them up.

Then swap them out for some old Marvel Legends (you know, the one I didn't already return sans the BAF part*)

Return them to their store of origin.

Finally- complain that Hasbro couldn't keep the line going for more than 1-2 waves.

 

That seems like an awful lot of work.

 

*No, I don't actually do that.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only Joe fan that didn't wait for massive clearance to get a Pit Mobile Headquarters, I got it on a Christmas sale though.

I'm still hoping that they'll do 3'75" - 4" versions of these designs, some day. But Those 6-inch figures are really dang nice.

I really dig the box art they have for the revealed characters

Alley Viper's getting clowned on. Interesting in that the Joes on the main poster are the same ones that came in the 2007 25th Anniversary box set 5-pack.

I willingly buy most stuff at regular retail, but that's one thing I only picked up because it was clearanced - and it's still not come out of the box.

Alley Viper appears in the box art for both Scarlet and Roadblock. I assume* that makes the Alley Viper a lock for wave 2?

 

Wave 2 speculation: Cobra Commander, Alley Viper, Baroness, Gung Ho, Cobra Ninja and/or Storm Shadow.

 

 

*Yes. I know what happens when I assume.

And Destro of course. There are six figures left from the box art, so maybe two smaller waves of three? Or more likely two additional waves of four with a repack in each of the next two waves - regular Snake Eyes in the next wave (maybe with a Timber?), and then maybe Duke repack in the final wave.

Yeah, I felt it was a bit lackluster as well.  For a "grand reintroduction", all we saw were a few collector figures (not even the first full wave), few details on anything else.  I know its early in the year..but this was a sparse introduction for something they are pushing as a potential global brand and franchise brand.  

 

We'll see what the marketing goops are thinking, but with a release date only 3 months away...shouldn't we see the entire first assortment at this point since we can even order cases?  

 

*That's a big peeve I got this year- all those reveals are parts of assortments, so retailers are taking preorders on stuff officially unrevealed

 

I also think not showing Destro was a misguided decision, however we end up seeing him.  The top 5 iconic/recognizable Joe characters basically boil down to SE, Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander, DEstro and Baroness.  And we only saw ONE of those this weekend.

 

 

The lack of stuff from Jazwares was confusing as well (especially given the great rollout for Micro Machines).  However, Jazwares apparently had a lock on pictures of UFC and Halo product.

But people managed to snap pics of the Halo stuff which is heavily invested in 3.75 figures and vehicles.

 

Also, TRU Canada slipped out what appear to be some Snake Eyes movie SKUs:

https://news.hisstan...an-heroes-68200

 

I almost wonder if Hasbro or Jazwares pushed back whatever Jazwares is producing so as not to interfere with Snake Eyes toys from Hasbro?  Maybe retailers were cautious prior to the film's release?  I'm suspecting there's some sort of licensing deal that makes it so that Hasbro probably has to make the movie toys themselves.

Man, I assumed the first wave was just those three, I somehow hadn't realised they were packed with two "secret" figures. I'm not sure the odds are good that I'll be terribly interested in those two secret dudes, but ehhhhhhh, I'm trying to start a Joe collection here so bring it on, stupid "40% mystery" box ordered. I hope we don't have to wait too long for a regular retail Snake-Eyes, even though he'll inevitably disappoint me - he's the one who needs the greatest degree of Sunbowness to satisfy me.

Oh, do we know that? Cool, thanks. That's a pretty sad ratio of Jobes to Cobes. Glad Snake-Eyes is there though.
