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)

Double post ignore.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 June 2020 - 01:44 PM)

Energon was the worst of the lot.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 June 2020 - 11:51 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)

Anyone watch Armada anymore ._.

@  JRSBill : (03 June 2020 - 01:06 PM)

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

And there was no one there when I started!

@  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

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 June 2020 - 12:15 PM)

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.

@  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.

Ok. "Local" where? Source?

Not that I don't believe you, it's just that this post is gonna make me drive all over this morning. ;)

-ZacWilliam, there are downsides to living somewhere with a half dozen TRU and Targets nearby.

Local here. Source me. Sorry, I thought that would be clear. I can't speak for everybody else's locality. In this case, though, your local is pretty close to mine.

 

Manchester TRU, Manchester Target, and Enfield Target all got them, though they didn't have much left and probably aren't worth driving out to (mostly Han/Leia and Anakin/Yoda). The online DPCI checker showed other Targets having them in stock yesterday as well.

I went and bought the model kits for Darth Vader and his child, C-3PO, from HLJ.

Let's see how my dislike of stickers compares to my dislike of the Black Series's cloth nonsense.

Cool found them all at the Newington/Brln Trnpk TRU.

After much deliberation I grabbed BB8 set and R2/3PO (the later mostly for my daughter).

Thanks for the heads up.

-ZacWilliam, I wanted Asoka/Vader but a I helped a friend get her instead (which is kinda double good as 2 sets was already more than I had wanted to spend this week.)

I saw the Hot Wheels vehicle set, looked pretty cool if I was collecting those.  Also saw the First Order TIE Fighter.  The ships look cool, but after the pics of the TIE and the not straight wings and $50 price tag on the X Wing I just cant go for these.  

 

On the plus side, I did find Black Series Kylo Ren.  Only thing I wish, and I'm sure its coming, was a removable helmet version of him.

Been seeing some restocking on single figures here, and some ACTUAL stocking on things like the Class I vehicles.  Walmart seemed to have a lot, so I don't know if they didn't have it, or just hadn't got it out in the past couple weeks.

 

 

I'm highly amused at the first major update to Hasbro Pulse was a "preview" for wave 2 Black 6"...which are already being found at retail (newest being sightings at Walgreens)

20th is last day to order kits from HLJ. They've got very little left at this point but worth a look.

Just wish the bonus discount wasn't just on Threepio, Vader and the speeder bike. Seems they're using the bad situation to shift unmoving stock.

I picked up Vader and the bike since they were on my list anyway but went back for two Threepios for customs. I did a custom of a Threepio tops candy head years ago using different colours and weathering, so I'd like to try a full body one.

Wondering if I'll continue with these given how expensive it will be to get them. The low prices from exchange rates was a big plus for these even if they're brilliantly engineered.

I looked at the 5-POA SW:TFA figures in Tesco saw the £10.00 Price tag - snorted a laugh and walked on.

 

I consider 5-POA to be a cheap Nostalgic amusement not a premium product so I think those can stay on the shelves then - perhaps they will over produce them and I can get them in the clearance retailers - but even they sell figures for up to £6.00 and I'm even sure I wanna pay that. So carbootsales 2017 then I guess. 

 

The sad thing is if they'd been a bit cheaper I might have been encouraged to go stupid on them - but £10.00 is just taking the mickey.

My 3.75 haul so far. LOVE them a lot (as does my 1.5 yr old daughter who keeps taking them from Daddy proclaiming "Guys!").

I'd be pretty happy with this group if I could find a Kylo and Phasma somewhere.


-ZacWilliam, looking forward to the red circle face guy and the Blue Sauropodish Protocal droid down the line...

I saw Phasma twice at Walgreens last weekend, so it might be worth checking there if you don't mind the higher pricetag. Kylo continues to elude my grasp.

Oh and £20.00 Speeder Bike re-issue - er "NO!"
