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.

@  -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)

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

@  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)

@  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)

@  -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.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

Thank you redjack! Man, that is a hella useful feature.

Found Series 7 today, and thanks to my Finger-Fu skills I ended up with pretty much everything I wanted:

2 Space Marines
2 Aztecs
Little Red Riding Hood
The Black Knight
Bagpiper
Jem
Tommy Chong

I finished sorting and bagging my old lego today. I... never realised how many friggen binoculars I had. I mean: literally. I have enough to outfit half of my lego men with field glasses, probably more. Considering half of my lego men are those robots from exo force... Yeah. Thats a lot of glasses.

Well...I bought Battleship Kre-O.

I actually like them! It was the smallest set with the underwater alien and Scuba guy. The alien was the main draw of the set for me, but the little scuba thing impresses me a good deal. I really like their solution to firing missiles, since it uses a very cool (if simple) trigger mechanism rather than the pressure launchers that I'm used to with building sets.

And looking at the other sets, there is a pretty nice looking alien space ship, and military helicopter that you can buy. Not to mention some nifty looking play sets. It's not just "Battleship" and water related sets.

So I'd say give them a glance next time you're looking in the Lego aisle. They actually look pretty cool.

My not quite 4 year old nephew wanted to play lego with his uncle (lord knows who told him I had bricks...) but we built a tower, which got me in the mood to update my halo mega bloks display. So I built an entire fortress front, and utility tower, and populated the new battle field with more covenant troops, and then threw in the marvel figs from the now disassembled tree house. So straight up heroes versus villains.

Well, as I had yet to have bought any Halo series 3 minifigs, I grabbed 2 random packs on my way out of Walmart after a pitstop during a road trip.

First one opened: yellow Marine. Cool, I can add him to my yellow ODST series 4 guy (I would get a second yellow ODST by the end of the day). I look through the little flier - oooh, clear covenant guy. "I wonder what the chance is of my second one being that one," I thought.

BOOM.

Active-camo Elite.

Now, if I could only land Cortana. Try as I might, I still only managed to walk away with the Purple Eva and that second ODST that I mentioned earlier.

Ah well, the Elite was a good omen for an otherwise awesome day. I can wait to find Cortana another day.

I should have figured that there was a system for Halo minifigs, too. Is it numerical or bump based?

Oh, speaking of blind-packed mini-figures I also snagged 13 out of 16 of the new Series 7. I'm only lacking Daredevil, Swimmer, and Bunny guy.

And I only came away with 4 duplicates: Valkyrie (that was my fault for not paying attention), Tarzan (always up for more chimps), Black Knight (meh), and Merking (I'll take as many fish tails as I can get).

It's worth mentioning that the Black Knight seems to have the Chinese-quality torso. It feels lighter and less durable. Also, no printing, which really makes it kind of a bummer.

I stuck Tarzan's head on my spare Merking body - instant Merman. I may transfer it to the Mermaid that came with that huge minifig "education" set since it displays better than the flexed out tail.

All in all, this is a pretty neat series. Gotta get more Space Marines, tho.
...and I kind of want to pick up another Tennis Pro for the hair. Every Lego city needs a Barney from HIMYM.

Numerical, same as for the marvel figs, and really all the mega bloks blind packed stuff.

I got the numbers for known series and distributions here. You cmouse over "hero packs" on the top and then click the choice. Takes you a page which will list the series and give instructional video on where to find the number and what to look for.

I got the cortana already (she was holy grail for a bit there.) and while I like the fig, I was disappointed in articulation. She can't really do much else other than stand there.

Hmm, looks like the codes have changed since that page was made.
My two recent Series 4 figs end in 022MM.

A 09022MM - Purple EVA
A 03022MM - Yellow ODST

Oh well. Looking at more pictures, shouldn't Cortana be easy to identify due to that ginormous baseplate she comes with?

EDIT: Oh noes! The Covenant have taken over the Lego Store. I really enjoy these minifigs way more than I ought to.

Ever played the halo games? If you're a human soldier that isn't either a Spartan, ODST, or integral to the story: you have the consistency of wet tissue, and draw ammo like a magnet. (I wanted to set some alliteration here, but couldn't come up with anything that flowed properly, or wasn't racist.)
