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.

@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?

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

@  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 - 06:05 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)

At this point I'm actively cheering on the seeming cancellation of the Legends toyline, because it means this godawful comic will die with it.

 

 

It seems that Octane and Tigatron have talked Trickdiamond into shooting a Sexy Photobook (forget if there is a term for this) that are popular in Japan.

 

Trickdiamond is my favorite among the Guards.  I am a fan of Octane being a pervert (as he was the original robot pervert), but not of the treatment of Trickdiamond here.

 

Agreed.  For as "ha ha, cheescake! Naked girls!  Panty shots!" as Legends has been the whole time, Octane's comic is the first time where things just go too far for me to laugh with.

Dear Sakamoto-san,

 

In the world of equal rights and opportunities that we all unerringly strive for, I cannot understand why, in your graphic accompaniment to the Takara Tomy Legends series, the character of Spike Witwicky makes it through his entire comic both fully clothed and disappointingly unmolested.

 

Your treatment of the aforementioned character, seemingly for doing naught wrong other than not being female or a pre-pubescent boy, is, frankly, both shocking and unacceptable.

 

I await your forthcoming explanation.

 

Yours faithfully,

C. Fax

Are rooting for a person's unemployment and the loss of options in toy purchasing for the sake of fictional characters who don't exist in an easily ignored, silly little 2 to 4 page comic printed on the back of an instruction sheet you'll probably never use "because it's canon" really the hill you want to die on?

 

If fandom drama has taught me anything, it's that 'lore' is a four-letter word, in all the ways that implies.

Criminy. I have no particular beef with Legends' existence, even considering the spike in kink content as it winds down. It's also part and parcel with a toyline that let decent action figures get decent paint budgets, and that was a good thing.

 

But the general "good riddance" attitude is definitely something I've felt toward Transformers properties other people liked, including the BotCon / Club stuff. Is it necessarily kind to go around saying so, especially when the wound is fresh? Not really, no. But you don't need to make this any more personal a thing than it necessarily is. 

 

Hell, plenty of people would say the same about the IDW TF comics, fachrissakes. Does that mean they personally hate Alex Milne and want him to starve? No, that'd be nonsense.

Alex never had a letter writing campaign organized to have him removed from More than Meets the Eye because of something he drew over a decade prior.

Honestly, rooting for the cancellation of a comic which routinely sexualises all its female and child characters totally is a hill I'm willing to die on.

I'd react the exact same if any franchise I care about started releasing shameless wank material in an official capacity (especially shameless wank material with all the transphobia and child sexualisation that Legends has), and it's especially galling that this has been coming at a time when Western Transformers fiction has been taking some of its biggest steps (relatively speaking) towards improving inclusivity and not centering everything around straight male nerdbros.

That was stupid, and while I'm not aware whether anyone involved in this conversation was also involved in that stupid activity, I can't really apologize for calling their stupid actions stupid if they were, because those actions were, you know, stupid. With that said, I don't see that it's principally related to the topic at hand at all, which is Legends ending for purely business reasons and some people being happy that it's over.

Well, not really, no. It could come with a big NON-CANON disclaimer on the front and I'd still die on that hill. "Because it's official", would be more accurate.

To compare, it's like how a random person watching porn in their own home is a non-event, but a government official watching porn at work is national news.
