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.

@  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)

@  -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.

@  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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

Ooo. I'm really liking those upcoming Modern House and Tree House Creator sets.

I'm kind of underwhelmed by everything else - especially Jabba's Sail Barge. At $119.99, I expected more.

With the Punk Rocker, Jem, and the DJ as part of the mini-figure assortment, I'm kinda sorta in the mood to see an actual rock-themed subset for the City series.

Anyone else?


I can definitely see a radio station using the DJ hair pieces; I'm thinking a male DJ using the hair piece (sandy blonde hair), a female DJ using the hair piece (light pink hair), two musicians (one male, one female), and perhaps a station manager and a receptionist. For the building itself, I'm thinking a reception room, a studio, and a break room. The grounds themselves could have a rotating satellite dish rig.

I'm also thinking "radio station van" (an ambulance modified with a rotating dish rig and internal stickers that look like recording equipment on the walls), "touring coupe" (the coupe & travel trailer set from last year, but in neon colors and with rockers instead of campers), and "concert stage" (perhaps with lighted bricks to represent spotlights).

Thing is, I don't always have the luxury of bag-feeling.

The first few months of a new wave are hectic around here; if you don't snag, then someone else will.

#4 was literally the last guy in the store, and even then I only found him because he'd been dropped in the wrong place.

Yeah - the store had its grand opening this past Friday, and by Monday the entire case was gone. I think this guy was the only one left.

OH NO. You have to buy the product the way the company intended!

Just arrived in an order from Europe! When I dig into it I'll update on number of each fig I find. I've heard the series 9 case assortments aren't consistent like previous series, but haven't done much further looking to confirm it.

ok so how does Brick Link work exsactlly you dont buy directly from them right?
There are stores each store has there own inventory of parts some have a minim you need to have in your basket in order to complet an order.

Ok heres where it gets fuzzy for me
I placed two order with two stores and checked out but I have to wait for thim to give me a shipping price before I can completly check out and send funds one guy has done this prosess. but the other store owner has not logged on sence the 5th so I have to wait on him?
What happens if they take to long to respond can I cancel the order and try a diffrat store with the same item?

Yes, you buy from each seller individually. If a seller is not responding within a reasonable time-frame, or not shipping, you can go through the problem resolution center:
http://www.bricklink.com/retract.asp
Go to 'Problem with Order', then input the order number, and then select seller not responding. This will start the resolution process, which is the way you should go for cancelling an order. Once the NRS or NSS goes through, the order is properly cancelled... Any negative feedback the seller leaves you with can then be retracted. If a seller gets 3 NRS or 3 NSS they lose selling rights. On the inverse it works the same for a buy that doesnt pay. 3 times and they lose their buying ability. I hope this helps.

Gotta say that I'm pretty disappointed with Creator set 31006. I thought it would have made a pretty awesome super car for my Tony Stark minifigure.

$25 and half an hour later, I'm finding that the car is pretty wonky with scale. It stands too high, and yet, there's still not enough clearance to fit a minifigure in the seat without removing the rooftop. Oh, and there's really no seats for minifigures, either since the "butt" pieces of the chairs are smooth tiles.

I ripped the rooftop off and oriented the steering wheel in the centre of the car. It works a little better now, but I'm still sad that there doesn't really seem to be a way of fixing this with the available pieces. I might have to get creative and hit up bricklink again, but I really shouldn't have to.

What's the point of making a Lego car if minifigures can't ride inside?

icon-ball.gif

EDIT: Well, I got a little creative, and only adding one non-set piece got the car to work with my Stark minifigure. I guess I'll need to order one of those Lego bucket seat pieces next time I'm on bricklink to make it more appropriate, but I can live with this for now.

EDIT EDIT: Now with photo.
