@Nevermore yes.

Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:35 PM)

The goth band kid definitely had to be for one of the new shows as his intro and part makes zero sense as is. Given the other new kids are definitely for the Aliens show I have to assume he's gonna be for the Wizards one.

-ZacWilliam, great series conclusion though. I do hope we see the main characters here again someday after the spin offs.

So watched through 3 Below and it's about the same as Trollhunters in Quality which really isn't too surprising. Sadly as it's the Aliens coming to Earth type of story we don't get to explore their world as much as Trollhunters centered in the Troll Market and other settings. But it ties itself to the previous series in great and previously unseen ways. A certain favorite side character of Toby's turns out to be another visitor from the skies. Dude was practically in the picture of the series the whole time yet only gets revealed now in this series. And there is about 3 episodes involving Jim, Toby, and Claire with one being a previously unseen adventure set before Aja and Krel appeared in season 3 while the other two episodes see their perspective of the episodes they previously appeared in on Trollhunters. But sadly this brings back the use of our Creepslayers Steve and Eli, with Steve playing a larger role than previously.

 

And I've yet to really go off on the mains yet. Aja is the rebellious Princess wanting to explore the world at large and Krel is the tech savant genius who is overly confident in his skills but not so much in himself overall. Then there is Varvatos Ves, the captain of the guard in charge of protecting the two. Over zealously, combative warrior type who basically gets holo disguised as the twos Grandfather. He also gets a fun tie to the Trollhunters series when he falls for an Earthling late in the season.

 

Our Villain like Gunmar before, Morando is hands off this season sending Bounty Hunters instead after the three While only usually appearing near the end of the episodes to let us know how he's controlling their homeworld and how the resistance tries to subvert him on the homeworld.

 

I can't say I like it as much as Trollhunters as I feel the need to lump it together with Trollhunters. If this was where you started it would be odd to see some of the preexisting Troll world concepts randomly pop in. It's not impossible but the episodes featuring Jim and the rest of the Trollhunter crew rely on your knowledge of the series somewhat while not being totally out there. But even than when Aja goes to a bonfire with some of the other kids, the excuse told for why Toby, Claire and Jim aren't around is due to their going to visit their uncle Merlin, and then proceeds to give us a 5 second clip of the Trollhunters episode with them finding Merlin. Then there is the original Trollhunters episode that featured Aja and Krel where now it kind off feels like a kind of a slog seeing Aja and Krel's point of view and their entire reasoning for helping Jim. That and the season arc coincides with the final battle in Trollhunters for the most part shoving more of the 3 Below cast in the middle of the conflict as well as fighting off their own problem at the same time. I'm more eager seeing whats to come since that will be post Trollhunters and potentially has shaken up the cast dynamic as well.

The general premise seems rather like a mashup of Trollhunters, Invader Zim, and Steven Universe. Like, its the Crystal Gems living in Zim's spaceship-house (complete with robot parents) menaced by Space Gunmar... sorta.

Actually a very close comparison would be Symbionic Titan, just lose the robot aspect of it and shift the characters personalities around.

So blasted through Wizards which thankfully is only one season this time. And like 3Below is definitely it's own story built on what we've already seen in the series before.That said though I'd not want to start with this one as we have many returning characters and plotlines and even some lore explored. But other than Steve's development into a halfway decent....huuuuuman.... 3Below doesn't factor much into the series until near the end of Wizards.... and mostly could of been left behind completely.

 

But Wizards is more of the same mainly starring our new focus character Douxie, his Cat Dragon familiar Archie (voiced by Alfred Molina), joined with Clair, Jim, and Steve (sadly Eli gets no screen time with his fellow Creepslayer). A large part of the story involves them going back in time to Arthurian Camelot getting involved with the history of the series so far. I won't go into details but it does leave off with another cliffhanger plot as this isn't the stopping point for the Tales of Arcadia yet.

 

Netflix announced today that it will end with an endcap film "Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans" next year. Which I'm cool with. This series has been fun and it deserves to go out with a bang.
