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.

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)

@  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?

@  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.

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

The problem with the first two FF movies is that the writers couldn't seem to figured out how to create action scenes where they use their powers as a team. That and just not coming up with a decent story.

The first was mostly just boring. So much of the movie was wasted on just farting around and goofing off. Couple that with no clear motive or plan from Doom and you just got a waste of time.

The second was flat-out insulting. When I heard that it was going to have the Silver Surfer I was really excited. I imagined massive battles as the FF fought against all odds against the wielder of the Power Cosmic. The Surfer is one of the most powerful beings in the universe and he gets punked by some goofy techy-thing and get sidelined for the rest of the movie. If that wasn't enough of a kick in the balls they turn around and have Johnny go all Super Skrull because the writers STILL can't figure out how to create a good action scene with them working as a team. This was seriously one of the few movies that actually made me angry.

I will also echo the sentiment that Jessica Alba was a terrible choice for Sue Storm. Personally, I would like to see Maria Bello in the part.

I don't think and all-black FF would be a very good idea. Mainly because I think that they would end up sidetracking the whole thing by doing everything they could to call attention to them being black. If they could pull it off by having the black actors but not making it out like the movie is spending it's entire running time holding up a neon sign reading "LOOK BLACK PEOPLE" then it could work. I just don't have that kind of faith in Hollywood.

Indeed. Hell, in addition to her weak acting, she looked like a damn mannequin in the 2nd film.

More then that - it meant in both films, Johnny is ultimately the one who takes down Doom. I mean, I know the guy went on to be Captain America but sheesh.

If there had been a third movie, I'd have wanted to see Doom target him before everyone else.

this bugged the hell out of me. how the hell did johnny get so adept at using four different powers with no practice time?? gah!

and ive a question: did the surfers voice change? sounds like two different ones, one when he has his powers, and a different voice when he didnt have them

Well, can't say I'm disappointed if this happens.

Seen Jordan play superhero before in Chronicle. He played Steve Montgomery in that one, and he was the coolest and most likable person in the whole movie. Think he could do Johnny pretty good.

It's a role where you need some serious charisma, and he proved there he can deliver on an Evans level. Matters more than the melanin levels in someone's skin for the role, and the pool's more limited.

All three previous FF movies were turd sammiches anyway, so it's not like they'd be ruining unsullied territory. (Saying this as a big time fan of the World's Greatest Comic Magazine, too. Loved the Four before I'd even heard of Superman.)

If anyone's getting a skin change, I'd like it to be Reed.

Goes against Hollywood stereotype of the black guy getting a flashy ability and being the cool character.

Gives kids an intelligent fictional role model to look up to. Doesn't get much smarter than Reed. (And who knows what'll happen with Black Panther, and if anyone'll care).

It doesn't really matter what colour Ben is, because that's not important. But I'd like the black guy to be seen, and be prominent (unlike say, Darwin from both First Class, where of course the black dude died first, and the comics where he looks white). And angry strong black guy is rather tropey.

Plus, this way, the black guys in charge, because he's smartest not strongest, he's not gonna die or turn evil, he doesn't have a criminal past, and we get a prominent interracial couple. (All that stuff fits various prominent black heroes Marvel derailed).

Only downside would be bitchy fanboys calling him 'Mr Blacktastic'.

As far as the Thing goes they really need to do it CGI. The rubber looking Thing-suit was just awful. I get that Chiklis wanted to be on camera but if you looking for a face-role you don't take the role of a superhuman thing made of orange rock.

No, they really don't. A good suit can work, if they actually make it a good suit. Look at Iron Man, they have regular practical suits along with CGI suits. It also helps make him feel more real. CGI works fine for the Hulk, because the hulk isn't always "on" and he's more of a monster, and CGI helps with that. But The Thing? He's always on, and despite being a rock creature, is still very human. I feel that because of that he needs to be more real, more physical then Hulk.

I dunno, I mean, CGI can get pretty good. And Iron Man having actual suits made sense anyway, considering he was quite literally, a man in a suit.

...so has there been any update to this?

I'm especially worried about the director trying to cast a black actor as Johnny and a white actress as Sue. I'm fine with an ethnicity change but let's at least keep it consistent within the family here.

I like Cat's idea of making Reed black.

It's supposed to start shooting in September and they changed the shooting location to Louisana.

It sounds like Michael B. Jordan will be starring in that Rocky spinoff, so that may conflict with him being in Fantastic Four.
