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?

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.

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

"Prowl". There, that's at least fifteen.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

@  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.

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?

That was a really awkward livestream. If Hasbro insist on doing panels and vids like this, any chance they could put people in front of the camera who don't give off the vibe they really don't care?

Likewise, what a bizarre non answer to the Autobot clones. Is it so hard to say you'll pass the interest on to HQ rather than a marketing speak response about how they try to make the faction representation equal?


I thought the woman on the Transformers one did a better job than the woman on the G.I. Joe one. She seemed a lot less interested in the presentation.

I like how the man referred to a weapon as a gun and quickly had to correct himself to the marketing term "blaster" as they don't want to say these characters come with guns.

Really? The Autobots Clones answer was the clearest one they gave. They said "Yes, they are absolutely making them." in corporate marketing speak.

-ZacWilliam, they are just not allowed to actually answer questions about upcoming product so they had to say it without saying it, but the answer was super clear from what they did say.

 

I don't think that he actually said that they were going to make them. It was kind of like, he wanted to say that they were coming, but couldn't.

They would have answered that question with very different "marketing speak" if the answer was no.

-ZacWilliam, or they would have not read it on the stream at all. They picked those questions a head of time, and that was entirely a "yes."

Sounds like "We want to make it, but nobody's picked it up as an exclusive yet" to me. Or that it might depend on how well the Decepticon Clone set sells and if Target orders another wave to follow it. A solid "probably".

They've announced another Friday event at 9:30 EST, with "10+ Reveals".  Do we HAVE a list of ten+ rumored things we haven't seen?  Then again, some of the reveals may be T-shirts or the like.  Maybe they're moving up some of their Comic-Con reveals to gear up preorders?

Let's see... things we know are coming probably soon:

1) Exhaust
2) Greasepit
3) Hubcap
4) Dirge
5) Thrust
6) Ramjet

I mean then there's all the "possibly true" Kingdom leaks which would take you way above 10 but I'm assuming those if real are much further out...


-ZacWilliam, I wonder about the Studio Series 86 stuff maybe getting its first announcement. I assume the Walmart event a 1/2 hour later will be Wave 2 Netflix.

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.

Iaconus has not been officially announced either.


-ZacWilliam, Hasbro seems to think older collectors do not care about anything from their kid aimed series though so I don't expect them to even get a mention.

Edit:
Hmm. Forgot that.

I wonder if they might be counting all the big things and exclusives that have maps for that last set "wave" of maps...

I checked their code numbers on the wiki and the line is solid and filled in from WFC E1 to WFC E40 with the exception of 31, 32, and 33 which I have to assume are gonna be the Coneheads.

Of course they could announce some higher then 40 but it just feels unlikely to me. Wouldn't hate being wrong of course.

-ZacWilliam, wonder what replaces the hidden codes and clip out maps in WFC3.

At the very least I expect Greaspit and Exhaust. Not sure about the others, though of course Coneheads and SS86 are possibilities. While Kingdom/BW is all but confirmed, a SS86 unveiling would really too folks off to that and I don't know if they are ready to do so yet...
