Eh. It had a few ideas that could've been interesting. They just never went anywhere because it was easier to have Megatron brainwash everyone.

@  Nevermore : (05 June 2020 - 07:41 PM)

Energon's biggest problem is that it was made.

@  Paladin : (05 June 2020 - 05:15 PM)

remember when Energon had to switch animation styles because their CGI models were completely incapable of expressing emotions ?

@  Thundercrack... : (05 June 2020 - 04:42 PM)

And what was done to Demolisher to a lesser extent.

@  Thundercrack... : (05 June 2020 - 04:34 PM)

Energon's biggest problem is what it did to Starscream.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 04:00 PM)

I mean, they took all of that and the series is still dull enough to use as a sleep aid, so....

@  wonko the sane? : (05 June 2020 - 02:46 PM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 02:17 PM)

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

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 June 2020 - 01:48 PM)

They dubbed reaction shots and running scenes in the first two UT shows with "huh?" and grunts. very annoying.

@  Sabrblade : (04 June 2020 - 06:10 PM)

Watch it in Japanese with English subs. Karyuudo did all that work for us so that we could. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (04 June 2020 - 06:08 PM)

I tried... but it just wasn't that good. The comics were better.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 June 2020 - 04:07 PM)

I didn't even watch Armada when it originally aired.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 June 2020 - 01:52 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 June 2020 - 06:31 PM)

I swear, I'm in line to use a coupon, there is something wrong with said coupon, and suddenly I'm holding up a line of 3 or 4 people

@  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)

Okay, so Lego Batman 2 features this:

LB2_Lex_VTOL.jpg

Sides swing open as doors or propellers can collapse down on it, turning it into a little tube thing. It is quite cool. Does anybody know if there are any instructions for this anywhere? Or at least some better pictures? And is it even feasible? I recognize a number of elements in it, but it does look awfully.. round to be LEGO.

The big pieces on the sides of the cockpit look like some really special 1-piece large items I never saw before... unless they are in some round SW toy, I doubt you can make this. Of course, you can still make it from many smaller pieces -the old-fashioned way.

QUOTE(ZacWilliam1 @ Jan 17 2013, 07:05 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Other than that, I'm only through half of the first episode, but I like the (so far) non-toy animals. Skunks, Lions, Rhinos. Apes. And Bears.


The bears, rhinos and gorillas will have toys later down the line. This is the first I hear of the skunks, though.

I found it odd that the crocs all have tails in the show - using the same model as the Lizard Suit Guy minifig - but the toys do not.

As for Crooler (Zarana)- her bio states she is fine with staying in the background and controlling her brother instead of seizing power directly, since the everyday chores of ruling a kingdom bore her to tears. icon-hotrod.gif

The crocs don't have tails because one would have to remove the to have the croc sit in any confined space, or a chair with a back.

Yeah, I got that... but they could still include them with the figures so they are more show-accurate. They are removeable after all.

Here is something fun and well-built: ROTF Garbage-Disposal-Bot Kitchen-Con! I dunno where he got all those spikey parts, but man, he looks cute. icon-fire.gif

EDIT: Here is the guy's other Lego creations - he made other Appliancecons like Dickbot the Blender Guy, the cellphone TF from the first movie, Ravage, ROTF Megatron, even a mini-Driller!

I have to wait for the Rancor set to go on sale as that price is just effing bonkers.

Jabba's Palace begs me to display the outside but posing figures on the inside is just too much fun.


Oh you are so right. Drunk Gamorrean Guard in the look-out tower? Glorious. I need more Jabba goons, tho.

I might want to start researching/planning more expansions. I kind of want to add some depth to the tower and a wall behind Han in Carbonite.

Found out the others from series 9 my sons were looking for and went back to TRU today. Nabbed a Mermaid for my wife, an Ogre for my 11 year old, and a Plumber and Ogre for myself. Couldn't find another Knight for my 13 year old, but I didn't have a ton of time. Still, I was 4-for-4 on Bag-Fu. Pretty pleased. icon-hotrod.gif

My guess is that Raph is the only one intended to be darker, but since Leo comes with him in the Lair set, Lego just casted Leo in the same dark green.

You seem to be right. Don in the Baxter set is lighter than Ralh in the same set. So weird.

And nope. I just got the Shell Raiser/Party Wagon and my Leo is dark. In fact the ad in the back with the CG Lego Turtles shows him dark there as well.

I picked up all the minifigures this weekend, and helped a number of children find the ones they were looking for too. I'm only opening three per day right now. I really like the Policeman with his spot-on accurate uniform and hat. Makes every other Lego police officer look like an amateur. And I gave my Cyclops a hammer, because we all know what master weaponsmiths they are.
