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?

@  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.

@  -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 wish I could trade in action figures like video game systems for the newer model.

All of these (accept Prime) are incredible.

If The Leak was correct, it's voyager Ironhide.


The numbers go "all wave 1s, all wave 2s, etc.", so Ironhide in Voyager wave 3 would have a higher number.

Deluxe wave 1
01 Bumblebee
02 Decepticon Stinger
03 Crowbar
04 Autobot Ratchet

Voyager wave 1
05 Optimus Prime
06 Starscream

Leader wave 1
07 Grimlock
08 Decepticon Blackout

Deluxe wave 2
10 Autobot Jazz
11 Lockdown

Voyager wave 2
12 Decepticon Brawl
13 Megatron

09 is thus presumably something that will come out alongside wave 1, which a TRU exclusive probably would.

Amazon listings. Oddly, I couldn't find the wave 1 Deluxes or Voyagers or any of the Leaders, but wave 2 and 3 stuff is there.

Deluxe Class wave 2 Autobot Jazz
Deluxe Class wave 2 Lockdown

Deluxe Class wave 3 Bumblebee (code name "Stryker 1", confirmed as "TF6 Bumblebee" via Amazon Italy, so presumably the Volkswagen Beetle from the Bumblebee Movie)
Deluxe Class wave 3 Ratchet (possibly a Dark of the Moon redeco)
Deluxe Class wave 3 "Bluelight" (code name; listed as "TF 6 Blue Light 1" at Amazon Italy, so this is someone from the Bumblebee movie)
Deluxe Class wave 3 "Mercenary" (code name)



Voyager Class wave 2 Megatron
Voyager Class wave 2 Decepticon Brawl (listing says "Deluxe", this appears to be an error originating with Hasbro since he's also listed that way at ACD Distribution)

Voyager Class wave 3 Ironhide

A Nitro-based Thundercracker is such a weird thing to turn up in this line. Not that I'm complaining, although I wish they'd picked someone who doesn't already have a movie toy. Acid Storm or something.

Grimlock continues to look really metal. It looks like he has complete dino heads on both shoulders, and then the actual dino head kind of half conceals in his left hand. Is that right?

I believe he has his actual skull on one shoulder and a duplicate skull that hides inside his tail on the other shoulder, and that his real lower jaw ends up on his left forearm.

 

I love how convincingly they've replicated his colors for this toy.

 

EDIT: Hey dumbass, the real skull is probably his left shoulder, since that's the arm with the lower jaw, huh?

Hhhnnnngggg, I hadn't even considered that and now I need it so bad.

I've only just started Cybertron last week and he already seems like a potential big favorite of mine.

I had the same thought as Broadside. As the jet mode and arm make me think of that.

But assuredly that's not likely as who would homage another Thundercracker. :(

Well, that's what I'm hoping - the grey altmode would certainly be another point in favour of Cybertron stylings - but I'm afraid they're just going to give him a G1 head and blue and black colours (with red wing stripes, of course) and call it a day.

I'm sure it'll be more a Movie 1 Thundercracker head than a G1 Thundercracker head, but close enough.

 

This team ain't doing Cybertron anybody.
