Ha! Talk about getting away with something!

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 June 2020 - 09:08 AM)

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

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!!!

Necas next releases: BioGoji and SOSGoji!

I didnt think Godzilla vs Biolantes Godzilla would be different enough to warrant a buy, but that thing is a work of art. SOS as well.


I am in for BioGoji! Being the prototype for my much-loved Heisei design, I really dig that look, and Biollante is also one of my favorite movies in the series, as well as having the best art poster!

Keep in mind, if that was actual approved alternate art for the card (which is a real card, those are actual stats, all they added was the kaiju name), there would be a Toho trademark and copyright notice on the card.  Annnd it was released yesterday.  You know, April Fool's.  Not saying it's necessarily fake, but that's definitely not a final card image, Toho would plotz.

 

ETA: More cards were released today, so it's not a hoax.  It's just a reason for their legal department to have a small heart attack.

Kind of a random thought, but who here remembers Trendmasters Godzilla figures? They were the first legit Godzilla toys my brothers and I had, and they were steeped in the 90s Heisei aesthetic, which are still some of my favorite designs.
I wish someone would reissue or revisit those figures, particularly the later ones for kaiju like Anguirus, Biollante, Varan, and Megalon. Also, I think a SpaceGodzilla in blue would look way better than the black one in stores now.

Yeah, I got a lot of that stuff on instant clearance at Kay Bee.  I used up a lot of the Godzilla Force weapons in kitbashes over the years.

Welp, I was gonna watch Raiga: King of the Monsters tonight, but it turns out to have no English audio track.  So it goes to the bottom of the subtitles stack, behind movies that are more likely to have dialogue worth paying attention to.  (Subtitles mean paying full attention, and I really doubt Raiga's good enough to deserve my full attention.)

I am on the fence about Raiga. I was able to rent Reigo, and while I could see that it was meant to be a parody, the scarcity of practical effects and the absolute garbage CGI just wasnt that fun to watch.
Raiga looks like it has a lot more of the practical effects that I want, but I will have to buy it. It looks funnier from the preview, too, but after Reigo, I am just a bit gunshy to drop $10 on it...

Yeah, the wordless prelude that I did watch did appear to be mostly practical effects/suit work plus a lot of CG lightning crackles.  Raiga fights a monster that looks kinda like (and may be intended to be) Reigo.  But as soon as they cut to the human cast, the "shooting for camp" schlock kicked in HARD, and I was in no mood to slog through subtitles of writers trying to be campy.  So I finished off season 1 of Kipo (featuring a kaiju Corgi in one episode) instead.

So, I have been thinking more about Godzilla figures, and it occurs to me that there is another untapped source of figure designs:
Hanna Barberra Godzilla.
Not as a complete line, mind you, but a couple of versus sets mixed in with an assortment of other figures. Get Godzilla and 'Zooky against a couple of more notable antagonists from the show. Get some variety in there. Maybe draw from the Marvel and Dark Horse comics for a couple more kaiju designs. Also, odd as it seems, maybe a Gojirin figure. I guess I just want to see a figure set that celebrates all of Godzilla's history.
