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.

@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?

@  -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)

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

@  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 - 06:05 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?

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 hope this mold gets reused other than for Runabout.  It looks nice, but the Battlechargers aren't characters I particularly need or want second toys of, and that's become a bigger factor in my purchasing decisions lately.

 
Some have suggested that it could be retooled for the Throttlebots.

Yeah, see, I'm only in the market for actual toys, not the same hypothetical toys that get suggested every time we get a new mold that has a roof chest and/or hood toes.
 
Also you say "the Throttlebots" but I feel like you probably don't mean Rollbar and Wideload.

 
Twas easier to type that than typing out "Chase, Freeway, Searchlight, and possibly Goldbug."
 
Also note that I didn't say it was my suggestion. Just one that I was passing along from others in other discussions that I've read.

I really don't care whose suggestion it is except to the extent of caring whether it is Hasbro or Takara's suggestion.

Nah, it's Optimus fake grill silly. Unite Warriors would be if they painted the fake wheels on.

Probably because if the posts I've seen are anything, Target emails you in the middle of the night like a creepy prank-caller and when you log into their site, there's nothing there except a picture of Skywarp's face screaming at you.  I'm actually glad I'm not hunting this one...

They were finally available this morning but it said my zip code couldnt order them. So I tried my dads zip code and that worked, until I tried to check out then it said not available. Went on a different phone and same thing happened. :(

https://www.target.c...ck/-/A-78917026

 

I was just in a Target this morning that Popfindr said allegedly had 1 left.  Of course, there weren't any, and a very patient employee with a hand-scanner checked the UPC code and said he had none, that no nearby stores had any, and there were none on order.  I also noticed that the Target website had pulled their "announcement" emails, useless as they were.  

 

At this point I'm sorry I got Starscream.  It's a great Starscream toy, I kind of knew it would feel incomplete if I couldn't get the rest of them, I really didn't think it would be this impossible.  I remember LAST YEAR'S Target Seekers having been easily located by everyone interested.  

 

There are a metric buttload on eBay that, after the finder-fee, shipping, and tax, amount to a $50 markup.  I just don't see how I can justify that.  I could wait for the Takara release... which will probably be $70, and then BBTS will make it $80 and charge $10 to ship it, and then there's tax, so I wait like 6 months to save $20 or less.  For toys that I wouldn't really have wanted if I hadn't bought Starscream.  I almost think I'd rather sell Starscream.

Not that it changes all the rest, but BBTS is still just $4 shipping.

 

It does suck, but it's still technically early. If you're already resigned to missing out, then you might as well also consider waiting. Prices should come down or more stock might show up.

 

Lastly, set up an Amazon.jp account. Maybe you'll be able to order direct and cut out the local markup on imports.
