Oh yeah, Sides... ^.^

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 June 2020 - 11:46 AM)

The toys had some good parts. They also had Side Swipe.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

I mean, still addicted to minicons...

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 June 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Energon and Cybertron WERE boring... and Starscream was just messed up in those shows....

@  Cyoti : (06 June 2020 - 10:01 AM)

a toyline searching for a story

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 07:47 PM)

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)

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

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

If you have a ThinkGeek store in your area - give them a call. Looks like they are getting one case of the new BS.

Target here just stocked the Ashoka, Luke, Kanaan wave AGAIN. Where do they keep finding it?

 

This time, though, the Ashokas finally stuck to the pegs. Two of them sitting there, undisturbed.

Now this is one Rogue One figure I'm going to be all over:

https://www.facebook...154020651082344

 

Well provided I like the movie and her character.  The jury is out on that.

 


There's two versions.  A standard one and a Deluxe (has the extra weapons, poncho and related gear).

Hasbro is looking for opinions to help shape the future of the Black Series line, including what kind of figures people are interested in and which characters they'd like to see. You get a Hasbro Toy Shop 20% off code for completing it!

Uhm. I don't think I'll be much help since I wouldn't buy any of the examples that they gave me...

 

*Edit* OH GOD!!! I don't want ANY of those added features!!

 

Question 19... I just answered "Not at all interested" for all but one character.   :doh

 

Oh geez. 19-21 I have Wicket ("Ewok") and Chopper as my only "Very Interested". 4-LOM as "Somewhat interested". The rest, "Not at all..."

 

I did do a write in for the package question where I ignored their answers and just asked FOR FRIKKIN' CROSS SALES. I'm really getting sick of finding a new figure and not being able to find out who else was in the wave. Especially now with OT, EU, and New Movie figures all coming out at the same time.

Wish there were more 3.75 Black centered questions. I want 3.75 Luggabeast and Rathtar damn it.

For 6 inch I said I'd be interested in environmental bases but nothing at $30 for regular figs.

I am very interested in Bespin Han, Ewok, Chopper, the Bounty Hunters, Morrof and Ezra (wrote in)

Yup. I'm primarily a 3.75 collector so I had to answer not interested in most of the 6" stuff. I am collecting the Ghost crew though, so I wrote in Zeb, Ezra, Chopper (didn't know he was coming up on the next page) and Hondo. Hopefully they don't get discounted since I put more than one character's name in the space. :D

 

As for additional items, I wanted to give "electronics" a lower than three score - please do not try and cram electronics into six inch figures!

 

That being said, I was very interested in all the different role-play helmets. I already have the Boba Fett, but dang if a Royal Guard helmet wouldn't be awesome!

Yes, especially after Rey sitting with her old X-wing helmet on Jakuu, it's a great idea and something I've always wanted to have..
