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.

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)

But they already made a Cyberverse Quintesson figure, complete with the five-faced face-changing gimmick.

 

Maccadam worked as the first build-a-figure since he wasn't likely to get a normal figure otherwise.

With Rescue Bots Academy introing a Titan as well, is it wrong that I kinda want a whole line of Titans toys? They don't all need to be "Titan Class" in fact I would actually much prefer they weren't because "Ow my wallet" but say this guy's size would be great.

-ZacWilliam, with all the new Titans showing up on Toons recently they could go a while before even getting to the G1 guys.

I, for one, would be more apt to collect Titans if they were not the Titan size class. Something smaller and easier to play with would suit my needs much better. I would also not complain if Hasbro released sets of key characters in the old Legends/Legion size class to give the smaller Titans some figures to tower over, as long as they had proper transformations. The current Scout class is beyond frustrating to me.

New Ultra Class Thunderhowl toy pics outa nowhere:

https://news.tfw2005..._medium=twitter

I like it. It's a bit more like the show than the "Deluxe" version. It's making me a bit conflicted as to which to get.

-ZacWilliam, I think this supports that there are probably more new Cyberverse coming then we know. Iaconus has not been announced, and I feel like Astrotrain's role in Cyberverse very much feels like it was in support of a toy:

Ultra Thunderhowl looks so different from the other one they might as well be different characters. Get both and start a pack of Knight Wolves.

This was my idea for a line years back -- have Legends class and thereabouts be the focus for main characters, and have your bigger guys like Omega Supreme and Metroplex who can really tower over them without being SO big.

 

Mind, this was before Titan Class was actually a thing, and we had Unicron looking eye-to-eye with Super Pants Optimus.

I would love to see this as a successor to the Cyberverse line. If they have to keep the deluxe and warrior price points to satisfy retailers, i think team or versus packs of 2-4 smaller figures would be ideal.
For the larger figures, if they transform into a 'city' or fort, maybe compatibility with something like a hot wheels track would be helpful. Really push the idea of building a transformer city, but on a manageable/affordable scale.

He looks great in robot mode, okay enough in alt mode. The way his hips are made make him kinda floppy in robot node, though.
