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?

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

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.

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

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?

Version 1 came out in 2014.

 

Set number is A9370, UPC barcode is 653569996019.

 

This version includes Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Evac, and features the old-style Kreon body construction.

 

Telltale sign for this version is the lack of the "Universal Studios exclusive product" globe logo on the box.

Version 2 came out either in 2015 or 2017 (sources appear to differ on the date).

 

Set number is B6094 (sometimes mistaken for "86094"), UPC barcode is 630509408092.

 

This version includes Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Evac, and features the new-style Kreon body construction introduced in 2015 (?).

 

Telltale sign for this version is the addition of the "Universal Studios exclusive product" globe logo on the right side of the box.

Version 3 came out in either 2019 or 2020.

 

Set number is E5029, EAN barcode is 5010993652907. And yes, as a post-2019 Transformers product, it features a 13-digit EAN (which is predominantly used in the European Union) instead of a 12-digit UPC (which is used outside the EU). 

 

This version includes Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and "N.E.S.T. Sentry", who replaces Evac.

 

Telltale signs for this version are the "Revenge of the Fallen"-style "N.E.S.T." patch on the right side of the box, the "Universal Studios exclusive product" globe logo being moved right next to the "Kre-O" logo, the includion of the N.E.S.T. Sentry, and Megatron taking the place of Evac as the figure in the window in the lower right corner.

Is Nest Sentry just G2 Green Beachcomber?

I think the base figure is Beachcomber, but there's no orange on him, so I wouldnt think it was meant to invoke G2

Reminds me of the RotF? scout-class dune buggy, which was NEST-allied as well, if I remember correctly.

EDIT: Dune Runner. May have been S7 instead of NEST. Also missing the blue, but still seems closer than a G2 homage.

It's exactly Beachcomber's deco in olive drab, but it doesn't even match G2 in the layouts - they made his torso green instead of grey, for example. If he's anyone, he's Dune Runner, who also shared a mold with Beachcomber - ROTF Beachcomber, of course - but he also doesn't really look like Dune Runner. He's just an almost completely olive drab Beachcomber.

 

(Disappointingly, the actual figure has a red symbol, too, not the green one from the package photoshop.)
