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?

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)

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

Hey, remember Pony Life, that FiM spinoff that got announced out of nowhere, and barely heard anything about since? Well, we finally have a trailer.

Gonna be honest, it feels too Teen Titans Go-ish for me.

Following in the footsteps of something both extremely popular (and profitable!) is not a bad call.

 

It doesn't look like its very "for me" but I can understand the impulse on Hasbro's pulse and much like the Bay films I hope its successful for the Brands sake.

This...is exactly what I expected.  *nods*

 

And they're using the same voice actors as Friendship is Magic.  I was wondering, since the Hello Pinkie Pie shorts have been using other voice actresses..for some reason (likely cost).

 

I'm going to be honest, I'm probably going to end up watching every episode (whenever and wherever it actually shows up) because I miss the show a lot...plus it's only 12 episodes (probably).

 

Also, have a theme song:

The title and dialogue snippets are causing me to imagine a premise where the mane six are conscripted into a reality TV show.

 

I'm not going to say this isn't horrible but it's probably the right kind of horrible.

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

The Furry leg change is interesting design wise ... it's like an added detail that countermands the otherwise even more streamlined style...

 

<_< it must be there to subconsciously get us ready for the new continuity ... 

 

marketing department working over time ... fighting crime 

 

 

XD lol I guess I just proved my own point for why they do what they do...  also a new MASK show please 

 

not drawn like this though

Well, I guess Hasbro is well aware that she's the least popular with the kids, nevermind the adult fans, so it checks out. Kinda amazing though. 

 

I do like the visible hooves. But the heads got worse.

 

Make up your minds. Are you drawing horses or not?

I thought it was really weird to have the hooves separated considering that's one of the few consistent things in how ponies are drawn and sculpted since G1, but then I thought that the leaked concept stuff for G5 had visible hooves too, so this might be a transition they're just making now.

See, my take on it was "just breaking the fourth wall", rather than anything else.

 

Cause fourth wall breaking never gets old, right?

It's really about quality rather than quantity, isn't it? The Muppets have always been really big on breaking the fourth wall, and I don't think that's ever been to their detriment.

So the episode aired on Treehouse Canada. I've seen it.

 

It's very "Meh" and trying WAY to hard to be "LOL Random!"

 

Most jokes are just kinda 'there' with a couple maybe landing.

 

We'll see how more episodes fair.

Hey Applejack finally got her video.

 

 

So yeah, they've released a bunch of clips on youtube about "Best of Pinkie Pie" and such. I've watched the Rarity one and... yikes.

 

This show I feel is what people THINK kids this day and age want... except being I'm not a kid anymore, I'm not sure how true that is. I really hope it's not what kids find funny, because the way the show is written really feels like it's talking DOWN to them.

 

We've gotten so many great amazing shows that entertain kids and adults alike, that when we get something like this, I can't help but see it as the lazy way out.
