@Nevermore yes.

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?

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

Any folks here watching this? The pilot was made available in YouTube but now it's continuing, though is it just a mini? Feels like Over the Garden Wall, where it would end. But then it wouldn't be an Infinity Train.

I have a feeling that she's freezing to death and just hallucinating. If that's the case though, that seems like a cheat.

I don't know what the numbers mean but that other passenger being disintegrated means serious business.

Er, YouTube? Though saw it in other channels, er.

I'm midway and I'm still reminded of that Adventure Time episode where he's trapped in an endless train dungeon. Especially with the ep 5 thing.

Over the Garden Wall was moments before death but this is possibly Silent Hill? She has unresolved issues that's she's blocking out with puzzles.

One-One is her emotions, I'm fairly sure. The King is her support. The number... I'm still not sure.

Ugh, just tried searching YT, and it's a mess.  Lots of part 1's in random order, occasional part 2's, interspersed with videos of people watching episodes.  If there's a coherent playlist in a useful order, it's not showing up.  I'll wait for it to get on air or at least finish so I can find a compilation video of all the parts.

I saw it... in 2 minute increments. But episode 1 was hard to find.

I'm down to the last two eps, final day. The Chrome mirror ep was great but is it a filler puzzle? Then suddenly what the F on the 8th ep. That was just too much. They better the hell fix it up, gosh dang!

Saw the last eps.

Holy cow, I got a lot of things wrong. I think I got a certain theme right though.

It's a little more satisfying that Above the Garden Wall but I realize that I WANT more of the puzzle filler eps. The plot is fine but, during that part when she was running through all the weird, imaginative cars, that was great and I want more of that.

Near end, look at the wall. What do(n't) you see? Freaky as hell.

Was the name 'Infinity Train' mentioned even once in the show?

The ride isn't over. The ride ISN'T over.

I just finished it myself and I really enjoyed it.

 

My only complaint is that, in making a mostly complete and self-contained story, it (seemingly) didn't leave much to explore in further seasons about the train itself which, unlike the name, was far from 'infinite'. I really wished they'd stuck to Tulip's journey and left the train as a bigger mystery, especially since ever since I watched the pilot, I got a really big "Cube" vibe from it.

 

Still, a second season has already been announced and there's still a lot about the show's universe we know nothing about. Let's hope it doesn't take 3 years this time!

I thought of Cube too, when the car first did that thing.

We still don't know how people are chosen so I'm thinking it's still a Silent Hill thing going on.

But I get why Tulip is left at a loss at the end. It would carry over to Season 2, so they can use her without actually using her.

Finally saw it (the whole thing is on watchcartoonsonline for us outside The Country).

I loved that it resolved as a self-contained story, but there is still plenty to explore.

Did you guys realize that was Captain Janeway playing the Cat?!?

Am not Trek versed so I didn't know. You think the cat will be back? I know I'd like to see Atticus back.

Guess it's ok to spoil but Tulip is missing her reflection! She's a vampire now! Those soul sucking roaches got her somehow!

Kidding. But really, I hope she stays where she is. Mirror Tulip (Pilut?) could carry on in her stead, at least voice actress wise, just to keep continuity.

I wonder if the 'infinity' in the train means you get to stay there forever but you don't age? You have all the time in the world to deal with your Silent Hill issues. Which is a little horrifying if you can't face them...

I don't know that she aged. She just, er, might have been haggard? It's just the rate of decor she has.

It would have been AWFUL if her mom thought she was with her dad and her dad thought she was with her mom and nobody missed her!

The writers have confirmed that time keeps going as normal while on the train.

Do you mean the lack of  reflection or something else?

I marathoned this is one day but now wish I hadn't since so many mysteries were resolved in the final episode, and I too enjoyed seeing some of the wacky cars.

Pretty deep for a cartoon network show. Felt like Cube meets Neverending story

I thought the voices for one one seemed a bit amateurish somehow. I liked the cat, didn't realise it was Janeway.

More please

This was alright, but I feel it suffered for being a mini series.

 

It just felt like they were going on as if it was to be a show, then realized they only had a few episodes left and had to rush to the ending.


It's a secret to everybody
