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?

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.

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

Ransack. That's like another 20 or so.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 July 2020 - 06:18 PM)

"Prowl". There, that's at least fifteen.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Or do you want people to spam the Squawkbox with lists of 100 characters?

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Oky, just one question: If I were to say "Yes, I could", how could you be sure I'm not lying?

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:08 PM)

i don't go into people's threads that have no relevance to my interests just to be an ass by telling them that their comments and opinions are of no value just because they have no personal interest to me.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

i think one of us is misunderstanding what the squawkbox is actually for.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

and what is wrong with that? you respond to me to lessen your own boredom.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

I'm asking people if they think they could.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

Or did you just think of another random question to lessen your boredom?

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:04 PM)

Is this a survey?

That's really bad.

I wouldn't have known what MAGA meant if someone didn't tell me.  And Hasbro is all over the place with their dedication to detail.  I could see this being a god awful typo that was the second worst case scenario possible.  (I mean, what if it was Nazi?)  I could also see this being a stupid workplace prank that didn't get caught.  "Steve won't stop complaining about Trump 24/7, so I'll just switch the Jazz to Maga on his tampo layout and he'll be so pissed when he catches it!" only for Steve to never catch it and it makes it all the way to market.

And I could also flat out see this being a diehard Trump fan making his mark or doing the Steve prank thing with malicious intentions.  Even if I was a Trump fan, I would still be pissed that politics made it's way onto a child's toy.

Only other thing it can be is "VAGA" or "YAGA", and that's when I'm purposefully looking for differences because I'm going to be really sad if politics has bled into Transformers. 

 

I'm already getting bored with the line's repetitiveness and general lack of imagination these days, so I'd probably just stop before I start since I haven't bought any yet.  Maybe just pool cash for expensive Japanese G1 stuff I've always thought of as beyond my reach.

You don't sneak a white supremacist slogan into people's homes. You don't put crypto-fascism on a goddamn children's toy, and defiling the franchise's most black-coded character with it just makes it worse. I'm done with new toys. I've got a house full of this shit, I've got 2 kids who I assumed Hasbro would want me to bring into Transformers fandom, but I will not abide this. I will not bring this into my home, and I will not risk it with future Hasbro products.

I'm gonna be over here not wanting to destroy someone's life over a 3mm large tampograph in a language I can't understand unless I take out a decoder that is so muddy due to the size it might not even be correct.  I saw enough of that reactionary fury from Shufflegate, and they were wrong then too.

 

This is the same company that went out of their way to personally invite the little girl that started that whole 'Where's Rey' fiasco to Hascon, after all.

I don't care about politics in toys. Larry Hama's filecards had Joes and Cobras from all over the political spectrum and it made things richer. None of the heroes were fascists. It's not a hard difference to understand.
