@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)

@  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

I think what might have helped Bumblebee's voice gimmick in season 1 would be if he had been voiced by an impressionist who could quote a bunch of famous real-life performances to really sell the validity of Bee's radio clips. I'm thinking along the lines of Robin Williams/Dan Castellaneta as the Genie from Aladdin and Frank Welker as Chameleon from Mighty Ducks: The Animated Series. Both of those characters were constantly making pop-culture references with their respective voice actors doing near-spot on impressions of all the famous people they were imitating with their voices. If Bumblebee's voice had been cast as someone with that kind of a range, the radio clips gimmick might have worked better.

Ah thanks! I guess I totally forgot there were separate episode threads (though it does make sense since this thread hardly has any discussion :D).
 
Well uh... what about Tele-tron vs Tele-tran?

I suppose "Teletraan" like "khan" instead of Sunbow's "Teletraan" like "can" is an intuitive mistake if you assume a written double A is like German/Dutch.
 
Beast Wars pronounced the name as Cyberverse Optimus Prime did; in the finale episode Rattrap expressed chagrin, but Blackarachnia brushed off the criticism.

Yeah, that's what I always thought of here.

Wasn't Optimus the only one to mispronounce it? Sounds like iffy voice direction to me, unless it's some sort of Rainier Wolfcastle thing.

That would have been a better "impressions" take, but if the idea is that he's using radio clips, there's no reason for the "clips" to all be the same actor at all.

It would have been interesting if they'd used a TFP Soundwave approach and had an in-story explanation that Bee can't speak, but can play recordings of his own voice that are stored in his memory.  And then, for the real-life application of this gimmick, have the VA say a few lines and splice them together into the appropriate sentence to give them that "unnatural" feeling.

 

But frankly I wish they'd just skipped the Bee-can't-speak gimmick altogether.  I wonder if it was foisted on the creative crew by Hasbro or someone.  I loved the perfunctory way they dropped it in Season Two.  Not a single line of dialogue explaining or acknowledging that his voice box was fixed!  ;)  Fine by me, though, as long as it was gone.

It was most likely put into the show to tie in with the Bumblebee movie, as not only did they make him have to speak through radio clips but even had the bonus of Bumblebee specifically losing and needing to regain his memories, which was made the main storyline of the season just like in that movie.

Just saying I just watched Season 2 up to Cheetor being Scout trained and I was amazed. Yes, I'm really behind.

I was surprised at the capacity for violence amidst the comedy. Megatron brutally tossing Starscream around like garbage was... almost too much? And he died then, yikes.

The peaceful talk with Prime and Megatron made me really want it to work. I thought it was really well done. But then Slipstream was murdered? Don't tell me if she's really dead. I hope she's not.

The whole Starscream's children was really a good bit of horror. I can't believe they got away with it. I mean, it was also slicing up kids.

The shorter format is suppose to make this more accessible for kids? I thought this was all pretty mature, even with the comedic moments. Pretty good job, all things considered.

Cyberverse is a surprisingly good show for one that's primarily there to promote a toyline, has a enormous cast and is limited by the 11 minute format.  They simultaneously revel in classic transformers nostalgia while also doing stuff the series has never seen before.

And even gave us not one, not two, but three brand new Titans to the lore.

 

I kinda wish they would make one more four-parter to both cap off season 1's cliffhanger ending and bridge the gap between it and season 2. This would also allow each season to have an equal number of 22 episodes each since the opening four-parter of Season 3 works more appropriately as Season 2's finale. Just tack that onto Season 2 and the episode count evens out to 22 for both Season 2 and Season 3, while Season 1 would need another four episodes to match its 18 episodes to another equal total of 22.
