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)

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)

That was a fairly mediocre set of reveals tbh.

 

Especially considering there's toy pictures out for a bunch more stuff, you may as well face reality and talk about it now.

 

Rotorstorm really needed some retooling to work. Tigertrack suggests that mold isn't getting the minor tweaks it needs to have an Earth mode.

I want the weapons pack.  I don't honestly know which bots some of those 'iconic' weapons are actually FOR, and I doubt it matters, it just looks like a really good set.  Though I might pair roller with Dead Prime.  Not repaint it or anything, just flip it upside down like a goldfish.

 

Megatron's mace is getting test-fit on Galvatron, I hope Super Megatron can use it.

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.

Thoughts:

Yay Back To The Future reveal Next Week.

Centurion drone is EH to me but I do want the Weapons Pack. Probably want it enough to buy one.

Tigertrack - Cool to see a JTF "Neo-G1 Diaclone guy" being done (along with Exhaust coming) but sadly Tigertrack is kinda the least interesting of those both Character and Deco wise. Give me Cordon or Spinout or Black Ironhide and I'd be over the moon. Still I may preorder.

Rotorstorm is a wonderful idea executed slightly underwhelmingly. Not having his own head really hurts an otherwise beautiful piece. Extra weird that they specifically called out the head as being IDW when it's completely wrong for that. I assume that bit of text was left over from Spinister and no one involved here new the character well enough to know it was very wrong. Oh well. Still he's pretty and the original is one of the 2 TFs I got in England during my 12th Grade High School trip so I kinda feel obliged to snag him.

G1 Blaster - Still have my original from the 80s but I'd be tempted for a nicer copy if it wasn't likely gonna be very pricey. Maybe on Clearance.

Red Toys - They look very good. I want to buy at least one to see how they are in person. Non changing TFs are a hard sell to me but if they do the right characters (Action Master designs, characters that have no close toy representative, human allies and characters that don't TF, Pretender Shells) and do them well they could possibly sell me.

More Japanese rarities later this year. I know it's unlikely but I would DIE for a Trainbots/Raiden reissue.

Could the Rotorstorm reveal be a mistake, like the preview images of IDW impactor with the marvel head? Having caught up with the official images, I am super unimpressed by Rotorstorm even with a new head. Three cockpits?! They used the paint budget to produce a toy with two different fake cockpits!? An IDW Rotorstorm, with Spinister's head, toy deco and three cockpits!

Woo, weapons, Sunbow reference weapons. I am feeling such joy at the prospect of more Sunbow.

Those accessories are pretty tempting. Too bad theres no remolded heads on any of the selects.

 

The budget probably went to the new accessories instead of new heads.

Pre-Ordered Centurion (entirely for the Weapons), Tigertrack and Spinistorm.

That weapons pack is the most exciting thing. I don't care how much it costs. It'll be my excuse to skip buying a full Refraktor or an Earth mode Megatron.

 

I don't care about Centurion, but hey it's more weapons. Works for me.
