@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@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)

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.

@  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

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:35 PM)

Yay Lando!

 

Oh look its the concept from early versions of TFA where Rey and the other scavengers, were salvaging the second Death Star on a water planet.

 

Huh the Knights of Ren, can't even make it through the trailer alive. Maybe that dark,stormy place was Ren.

JJ said that you could tell a lot about the story by looking at the "Art of The Force Awakens" book. I was hoping it would draw inspiration from those sunken Death Star images and it looks like it is!


Yep.

So is Skywalker the term for a force user who is neither Jedi nor Sith going forward?

Huh the Knights of Ren, can't even make it through the trailer alive. Maybe that dark,stormy place was Ren.


I was wondering if that was one of them. I don't believe it is, but I am obviously not the only one to think that at first.

Not impressed by the title, it feels rather misleading considering the fact Ren is not a Skywalker as such and Rey isn't said to be a Skywalker, or did Luke quietly have a child somewhere else who going to swoop in and save the day? I was thinking the title might be better off with "Child of the Force of Children of the Force!" The trailer its self, ok, I guess but I still got the bad feeling about this movie having to work hard to answer all of the mystery boxes JJ setup and it will pretty much bring the movie down!

 

See, this is want a bunch of us wanted. The legacy is respected but this is Rey and co's story.

Why was that so hard for Johnson?

 

He a idiot, what do you expect? Its been confirmed whatever plan JJ setup went out the window for Last Jedi, so I think this trilogy will go down as a text book example of mismangement from start to finish, but hey, Lando back (will he die in this movie?)

I was going to avoid everything Star Wars because the series has been mishandled so badly, but fine, you've convinced me to watch the trailer.  I'll check it out when I get home.

No Y-Wings! Boo!

 

Abrams sure does love those low flying fighter shots.  I'm, uh, not complaining or anything. 

 

VERY interested in the end. Mostly for Walky's reaction, but, you know, also for how that's going to work.

You don't know WHAT the title refers to yet. No one does. So you can't say it's misleading yet.

Quit griping and let the rest of us enjoy this.

Bringing back the Emperor after redoing/undoing the OT and applauding TLJ for "allowing SW to go anywhere now" sure would be a sight to see.

On the other hand, old Sheev is one of my favorite characters and Ian's still around, so hug it why not?

Disappointed that after TLJ cast us into unknown waters, narrative wise, JJ is bodily dragging the franchise back into familiar and oft retreaded territory.

 

That said, I know that laugh. And he effectively carried an entire trilogy on the back of his performance. I'm not going to pretend seeing him again is a disappointment. And then there's Lando, and they got at least one scene with Carrie Fischer in the film.

 

Alright Abrams. Let's see what you have in mind.

Nothing here that's changed any of my thoughts on what's come before or is yet to come, but it certainly has my curiosity at least. It sure does flirt with the idea that it could go in a similar direction to TFA and open itself to criticisms of being an OT retread. Plenty of interesting tidbits though, and the title definitely has me wondering.

 

I think my favorite part of it is that brief shot of Lando. Every time I've seen Billy Dee Williams in recent years, he's seemed to be in very poor health. I really wondered what sort of presence he might have on screen. At least in that shot though, he's just so vibrant and alive! I hope to see more of that.
