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?

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

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

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

@  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?

It suddenly occurred to me that the headmasters could be painted to be the micromasters.

Course that would go against Japan's rule of headmasters being smaller version of themselves but...

I saw 'Big Powered' and I was excited for a reissue.

 

I saw 'Legends' and I was excited for new molds.

 

I saw 'remolds' and I'm no longer excited...

It'd be easy to engineer the Black Shadow mold to not be one, but I dunno about the other two molds.

Ooh, will they come with their Micro partners? Could make Sonic from Roadhandler and Speeder from Swindler, but Drillbuster doesn't really have any good Siege substitutes.

 

Transformations would likely have to be reworked too much not to be.

 

You can see that the gun turret looks like it can open.  Perhaps it fits a Headmaster inside.

Yeah a Leader sized figure and two Deluxes is probably going to end up expensive at Japanese Exclusive prices.


Super far away shot.

Yeah, the icing on the cake here would be if they are all still Headmasters.  I think they may already have my money, but that would make it worth all the more to me.

 

Given that Legends' niche became 'everyone's a Headmaster' after its first year with some exceptions and these are using existing Titans Return molds, I'd be more surprised if they weren't still Headmasters, honestly.


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

These are nice kind of exclusives.  Surprising characters, with a lot of retooling, that will be very different (as far as some details and coloring) than the original uses of the mold, and add a level of playability to them not present before.

 

I'm glad that no one attempted Dai Atlas before, since he wouldn't have combined like this.

The jet's nosecone would need to be hollowed out to make room for a head underneath. And... that part is already getting remolded. So I dunno. Not impossible?

Pretty much the same thing goes for Twintwist.

Sonic Bomber, at least, clearly still has Misfire's cockpit.  Not sure how Roadfire would work though...

I think Roadfire's driver compartment is attached to the main gun in combined mode. And it does look to have a hinge to allow it to open and seat a figure.
