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

Not sure if the Allspark covered this, but here is a link to the coverage:

http://news.tfw2005....day-2017-346226

 

Most interesting thing is the new Cyberverse TV series coming.  Doesn't seem to be a continuation of RID based on the description.

...Is that a new Optimus Prime toy?  In the "Transformers Across Categories" slide, it shows a REALLY G1 Optimus Prime, including a seemingly G1 Transformation scheme (see the headlights on the back of his hands and the "gap" on the under arm).  Our first look at the Cyberverse line?  Looks a bit complex to be the "base robot" for the Power of the Primes Optimus Prime figure, but I guess it could be that one.

 

I'm really curious about Cyberverse, looks like a whole "neo G1" concept, given Hasbro's usage of G1 in Transformers marketing it does make sense.  Not sure how to determine the "TV and online" notation at this stage.  Sounds like it might be like Mixels or maybe JLA where the short episodes run on TV and later available online or something like that.

So then "Rescue Bots Academy" is an 11-min-per-ep TV series and then separately there's "My Rescue Bots Adventure," the YouTube thing?

Some of those Micronauts designs are... different. Not sure I like that Karza.

Rom having a gun that looks like something out of Halo is also weird.

If "Cyberverse" is a reboot rather than an RID sequel,  I'm thinking "Rescue Bots Academy" is most likely a reboot too, and thus ends the Aligned continuity.

It's a licensed non-transforming thing that I don't remember what it's called.

That's not Flame Toys or Hot Toys Prime, so I'm not sure to what you're referring.  I'm betting it's the unseen cab Deluxe mode for the PotP Leader Optimus, personally.

That's a new Movie Bumblebee design, right?

 

Also... if the new cartoon is going to be "G1 redux" (euhhh), I wonder if those Optimus and Bumblebee designs we've seen floating around really are for the new series?

Good to finally know why kids love Bumblebee. Also I love Rom's weird, giant super murder gun.

 

I... don't know what it means that they're using a screencap of the original cartoon to represent Cyberverse? Like... is it a new thing or is it weird, edited versions of the old cartoon? Is it like Action Blast? I hope it's like Action Blast.

The idea of "dark and gritty MASK" and "Space Marine Rom" don't particularly appeal to me, and the Micronauts stuff is... sure? Not a big fan of the designs and I have no idea why they've gone with a blue Acroyear - plus it doesn't look very "GOTG inspired" like I was expecting - but it looks alright for what it is. In the end, I'll probably be fine with whatever, since I'll still have IDW's Rom and Transformers. Probably.

Considering that one year they used a fan-made MASK movie poster, I don't take any of these mock-ups at face value.

Well, I mean. That's definitely the toyset's Oberon.

This is, at the very least, a direction they're considering, and I'm not particularly warm towards any of it.

The Micronauts one could be likely because we know that that's something that's been in more development than the rest for some time now. I'm not as convinced that ROM and MASK are anywhere close to final. Regardless, I hope to the Gods of Galador AND Elonia that isn't supposed to be Rom's Neutralizer.

Yeah, I'm not suggesting that these are definitely finalised. Just that I'm not thrilled that they're considering this direction - gritty MASK would inevitably be dull as all hell, and "Rom the Space Marine" would seem to lack everything I like about him.
