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?

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 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

If it was a 13 episodes series, I would probably complain about frivolous episodes that aren't essential to the plot. But, seeing how possibly cool the other cabs were, I wanted more of that.

Btw, they really should have put some sort of deterrent for Tulip to just go outside and climb the cab to the next one. Like, if she tried it, the cab would be sent further back.

Also, thinking about it, we'll probably never see Atticus again, if the next passenger doesn't encounter his car.

Btw, what are the kid trauma themes could the next season be about? Kid being bullied in school so runs away and boards the train? Overshadowed by a sibling? But adults could also find the train too.

... scary if a kid passenger finds a dangerous drunk on board.

I think it's a great concept for folk being stuff in a sort of silent hill esque place to come to terms with their issues. I feel like there should be some sort of failsafe to protect passengers though,

I have to admit I really wasn't looking forward to Book 2 starring Mirror Tulip, which initially felt to me like they wanted to hang on to the character of Tulip even though her story was over. But I loved how they approached MT's personality and she never even reminded me of Prime Tulip despite having the same voice. I also loved the existential dread of MT's story arc; I genuinely wasn't sure how they were going to resolve it and they kept me guessing until the very end.

 

Oh, and we actually learned quite a bit more about the whole process being the workings of the train in regards to the passengers, even though the train itself and its origins are still a mystery. I hope they keep making more season!

Oh, for anyone who loves the music... They released the soundtrack for Book 1 last month pretty much everywhere (Apple, Google, Amazon, Spotify, etc). The composer, Chrome Canyon, was heavily inspired by John Carpenter and Vangelis and it really shows (in a good way)!

I binged it. Criiiiipes that was a ride. An amazing ride. Frightening too.

And they haven't resolved everything yet! What the hex?!? What about those ---- those ones. What's next?

Btw, Alan Dracula versus Atticus and One-One? ... My goodness, I might have to go with Alan Dracula over Atticus. But Atticus is awesome with his voice and cuteness. But Alan Dracula is ... deerly beloved. Haha

I rambled on the eps. Putting it under spoilers since they're long and rambly.

I was surprised the Train Documentaries didn't tie in more specifically with Book 2. Figured we'd be seeing the events that led up to all of the background events, but I guess they were just stuff that happened between episodes.

Oh, I haven't seen the mini eps mentioned above! It was still 'not US can't watch' last I checked.

I don't want to dwell on what happens to the people after this season (cuz, holy cow, what in the world are they going to do?) but there's already a hook for season 3, if they make one. And I hope they do.

I'm fine if we never get the reason for the Infinity Train. Even just passengers getting their adventures is fine.

I really loved season 2 of Infinity Train! I'm glad M.T. er Lake finally got her freedom and I just want her & Jesse to be happy together! I really hope we get a Book 3 to further explore the mysteries of the train as well and maybe an epilogue down the line to show us what Tulip, Lake and Jesse are doing as Adults or at least older teens and how well Lake adjusts to life in the real world.

I guess we don't have to spoiler tag season 2?

I'm worried about Lake's future. Will she grow any older? She doesn't mirror Tulip physically anymore but it would be sad if she wants a normal life but can't get it.

Does Tulip get a new reflection? It did say that once your prime dies, you can be assigned to a new prime. Perhaps with Lake in the real world, Tulip gets a new reflection.

I was only able to see four eps of the documentaries.

Ep1 had Alan Dracula being cameod, sorta. He started out as a green something? Or was just passing though?

Ep2 could be taken as gay male wizards.

The Kaiju cab to as seen when Metal Tulip was walking in the first ep. Donut holer guy was just about.

Does eps 5-10 show more Alan Dracula?

I'm guessing the next season (...I'm pretty sure we're getting another season, right?) will probably focus on the Apex.  They seem the most likely given the formula they followed last season.

 

And, yes, there is more Alan Dracula.

Ugh, I've got to find a way to watch those other extras. Why is the infinity train show region locked when the train actually does everywhere? Kidding, hehe

It's a little worrisome with the Apex cuz they have little kids with them. What kind of trauma would those 5 year olds have experience to warrant being picked up by the train.

Family abuse? Tulip had divorce issues but she wasn't abused.

But I'm sure they'll focus on the Apex heads. Hope they get taken out quick before they poison more newcomers.
