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

Now I wonder how many Transformers we can name with the fewest possible different names.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:38 PM)

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?

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Could you name 100 different Transformers without using the same name more than once, completely from memory?

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 July 2020 - 04:12 PM)

It's on Netflix, if you're playing the app off the TV just use search to find it. I thought it had been delayed but found it with the search option.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 04:09 PM)

Is WFC in the UK yet?

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

I sped the WFC trailers up on Youtube (1.25) and it actually helps.

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 July 2020 - 02:40 AM)

Never occured to me the Headmaster juniors were kids because their head toys were smaller then the engine Godmasters.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 July 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Misery loves company. Now it's just easier to find.

@  Telly : (29 July 2020 - 02:31 PM)

"becoming" obvious? its been obvious for years and years. its just more noticeable now thanks to social media

@  wonko the sane? : (29 July 2020 - 01:51 PM)

It's becoming readily obvious that there's a lot of people in the world whom are fundamentally unhappy and intent on making as many people as possible just like them.

@  repowers : (29 July 2020 - 07:46 AM)

Turns out he wants you to have an UNhappy day! HAHAHA! Such villainy!

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 July 2020 - 04:56 AM)

Questioning them just makes them shout the same thing but louder until any reasonable person walks away in disgust. Then they claim that they won. There's nothing to analyze, it's just bullying.

@  Nevermore : (29 July 2020 - 04:26 AM)

Especially since the words by our chancelor he was referring to ("I wish you a happy...") are pretty common.

@  Nevermore : (29 July 2020 - 04:26 AM)

That "subliminal reverse speech" thing is particularly baffling. Does that mean anyone repeating those exact same words is inserting the same reverse speech by default? Or how does that work?

One reason I'm concerned (probably too strong a word) is that, if it's only button-clicks, there's no communication that some of us want a specific coloration of Astrotrain (the US colors not previously reissued), and not something we've already gotten.

But even if they read that stuff, I can't honestly say that I have confidence that Hasbro would listen....

Then again, the last CHUG Astrotrain toy Hasbro gave us did have his G1 Hasbro toy colors.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I can say with confidence that if Astrotrain wins Hasbro will produce him in the colors some of the fans want. Whether they'll be the specific fans you're referring to as "some of us" is up in the air.

Does anyone want the white and black one that Hasbro and Takara both already did though?

 

That seems the worst choice of all the viable options.

I'm still not absolutely confident how votes are being cast/tabulated. Lots of folks are leaving comments, but I get the impression (but not a confident one) that you're supposed to hit the character's name within the "story" image itself. They really should spell that out....

 

I wrote "Skywarp" on a piece of scrap paper and put it inside a book. I assume that vote will be counted.

I completely misunderstood (didn't actually vote). I thought it was going to be a "Vs" pack and we were choosing between the Seekers or the Astrotrain/Perceptor pack.

Well, it really wasn't.  I counted last night and Skywarp was ahead by over 25 votes (roughly low 50's for TC and high 70's for SW).

Astrotrain VS Skywarp in the last round.

 

Little do we know that this confrontation would lead to the birth of Spacewarp.

Astrotrain won against Skywarp.

 

Despite my multiple accounts and getting friends and family to vote for Skywarp.  :D  :wtf  :(

 

I do hope that they either do the original Hasbro colors or some new cartoon accurate deco.

Come on, Hasbro! Give us Overcharge and a pseudo-Diaclone incarnation of Astrotrain!

 

Or better yet, remake Fever Dream and Star Dasher with modern molds!

Theoretically, he should have the blue wings of the original Hasbro release wouldn't he?

Meh. I was hoping for a Perceptor since I never had the figure, so this does nothing. I guess I'm done with this line for the foreseeable future.

I think it's a safe bet that one or two of the losers will still get made if the line lasts a bit longer. They wouldn't have been options at all if Hasbro isn't confident they could be made without problem.

That's probably about as much (if not cheaper than) a new Hasbro one would cost anyway.

Yep - if the cab-only Prime really is 49.99, I suspect Perceptor would cost the same.
