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)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

@  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)

@  -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)

@  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.

I got the lego movie 2 emmet's dream house set, this is a pain of a set to build as just the house, it took me around about 3 hours, I not done the alterative form as a space ship, YET but its a troublesome kit to build, it seems kind of straight forward but its not, thou I would say the weakest of the house desgin is nothing to latch the two halves of the house together beyond just holding it with your hands, that is on top of the fact its bags aren't numbered, so you have to pretty much make a huge mess and start building from that, so one couldn't really finish a bag and then take a break of a few hours or a day without having to spend time tidying up. The house is two levels with windows that open up and has some small details, such as a table and a sofa but no bed as such or fridge but there is a cooker plus some outdoor structures and a tape deck to likely play "Everything is awesome!" Figure wise, you get Emmet, Lucy, Unikitty plus whoever that new bloke is (I didn't look at the box for his idenity and can't go and look now as I already recycled the box thus gone, but I don't really care at this point).

I don't care about the Flintstones as it was well before my time, but I'm really tempted to pick up the set because it's such a unique and interesting build.

I watched the Flintstones way back in the day.  The lack of Dino actually pushed this one into the pass column.

I may change my mind later.

I use to watch a bit of the Flinstones when I was younger but I never really got into it, I think a lot of it, just went above my head at the time, about the only thing I can seriously recall outside of the openning song was the main cast names, everyone else I had no clue of their names! As for the lego kit, I'll pass, as I said, I wasn't seriously into it and still not that serious about it, it a product of its time but holds little value to me, much like the Simpsons do not hold my interst any longer!

Saw LEGO Movie 2.

Rushed and underwhelming. Apparently this director did Trolls and it shows. Took the clever twist of the movie and managed to overcomplicate it whilst doing a far more generic plot. Some characters return despite having no real role. Jokes are fired way too quick.

LEGO Movie 2 is what people expected LEGO Movie to be. Ugh.

Hey y'alls! I post a lot in the Discord channel for LEGO stuff, but I'd completely forgotten this topic was a thing. I just want to post this here, since things can quickly scroll away on there:

 

egg_1.png

 

I've been working on this Sonic Mania-themed LEGO Ideas project for a while now. I've written a bit more on the campaign listing itself, but if you're not familiar with LEGO Ideas, it's a mechanism through which fans can showcase concepts that could get turned into real releases... with the caveat of requiring 10,000 votes. That's a bit of a long journey, but I feel like it's feasible.

 

Anyone here interested?


Please check out my Sonic the Hedgehog project on LEGO Ideas. I've been working on it for pretty much the last year and it's almost there, so any more votes would really help me out.

Any time I see a lego Sonic, I think "WTF have they done to him?" Sonic's body is meant to be round, not squared, also his legs are to short, and where are the spikes for his back? He is a hedgehog after all, just one that is blue and can run faster than the speed of sound!

Just managed to score a good LEGO deal on eBay recently. I'm an avid Mixels collector (helped on the wiki tons, still do, and my avatar's a Mixels character), but I made the mistake of starting right when Series 1 was starting to wane, so I missed out on a couple S1 Mixels, and since those were 2014-levels of LEGO, they rack up awful prices on lots now.

 

Someone sold Vulk for $3.50 with $3 shipping, only a $1.50 higher than the list price that Mixels normally were, so that's the best deal I've ever seen for a now-five year old set, and now I only have three Mixels to go. This was such a great theme, LEGO really needs something that captures this vein again.

Completely agreed. Mixels were a perfect bite sized LEGO set. Full of personality, inventive builds, and cool new parts.

And those little ball joints aaaaaaaa

Got some of the Fantastic Beasts (and Harry Potter) Collectible Minifigures. I got Tina Goldstein (whose name I always have to look up), Jacob Kowalski and Professor Sybil Trelawney.

 

To be honest, none of them were in my top 10, but I like Jacob well enough. I didn't know Professor Trelawney's cup went in her plate, so I ended up putting one of Jacob's cookies in the plate. It's a unique paint-job, compared to my LEGO Friends ones which all seem to be the exact same brand of chocolate chip.

 

I love Trelawney's hair, so I ended up putting it on my Friends Andrea and it looks pretty epic. It's almost like the whole boho look was made for her.. I just wish it was the Friends hair piece plastic rather than the hard plastic, I like the feel of the sort rubbery Friends plastic better. I also tried Andrea's hair on Trelawney and it really softens up her look, makes her more versatile as an older teacher/mentor/etc character.

Yeah, although I don't know if they've been in print for a while.

 

Looks like just picking up a figure wouldn't run you more than about ten bucks, though, assuming you don't want a set to go with her.

Preview images for the Summer LEGO Friends sets are out, and I think it's fair to say I'm mostly excited and a skosh disappointed. We got no new boys. Instead we have the Always Working Zack in yet another new job (ice cream stand operator slash pirate?), and two Ethans in the exact same outfit he was wearing in his debut last year.

However, I didn't get that Ethan, so I'm glad I have another opportunity to grab him (and in a very cool set, I should add). I'm also a bit sad there's no new set with Liam or Mason, since I've been looking to get them too, but there's always the older sets that are still available within reason (for now, because prices on these can skyrocket after a while).

As for the positives, I'm glad we're getting so many new fashion pieces/torsos as well as some favorites I didn't get the first time around too. I'm glad we're getting not one, but two alternate blonde hair-pieces since I'm not a fan of Stephanie's default piece (one is even for her!). The new Heart Boxes are great too. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed building the only one I got from the first wave, and I plan to get more from that wave too.

Though I didn't exactly want my first year of like, serious collecting to start with a beach line, I love beach lines so I'm glad this extends from "hanging out" wear to "ocean rescue" gear. I'm also glad to see at least one new girl (Kacey) in a set that reminds me of one of my favorite older (now-defunct) LEGO themes.

There are a couple of sets that are yet to be revealed though; the new Friends theme art features Olivia in a weird bathing suit and Stephanie in The Coolest Lifeguard Outfit so I can't wait to see those.

I'm hoping we get a Stephanie's Lifeguard station with Mason, so they can be a cool Brother-Sister team.
