@Nevermore yes.

Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

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)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 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

Generations - WFC 3: Kingdomsss - Lets make a guess while we wait...

Ok, so let's say all the rumors are true:

WFC 3 is actually named "Kingdoms" and actually features, at least in-part, Beast Wars Characters. G1 Generations is, at least in part, shifted to Studio Series TF:TM stuff...

If all that was true what would you imagine or like WFC: K to look like?

[Disclaimer: I don't know that I believe any of those rumors really. It sounds a little like wishful thinking imo, but let's grant them just for the fun of speculation]


What I would love:

(Basing the numbers of each size-class off what we've got in Earthrise)


Battle Masters
1) Stampy - Rabbit to scythe
2) Rav - Raven to Crossbow
3) Mol - Mole to Drillgun
4) Tyranitron - Tiny Kaiju to Flamethrower
5) Fire Beast - Protoceratops to missile launcher


Micromasters
1) Slugfest and Overkill tapes/shields like the previous tapes
2) Steeljaw and Eject tapes/shields
3) Predacon Fly and Ladybug to robots
4) Maximal Owl and Squirrel to robots
5) Beastbox and Squawktalk tapes/shields


Deluxes (not necessarily in this order)
1) Carnivac Decepticon Wolf (later Wolfang Selects remold)
2) Tigertron (Cheetor Netflix remold)
3) Chainclaw
4) Snarler
5) Catilla (Tigertron remold)
6) Silverbolt (winged wolf Carnivac remold, later Selects Fangry)
7) Polar Claw (Chainclaw remold)
8) Swoop (Selects Terrorsaur remold)
9) Venim (Deluxe Insecticon Cicada)
10) Squeezeplay (w Titan Master)
11) Blackaracnia
12) Slug (Triceratops, Later Selects Horribull remold)


Voyager
1) Blaster (to justify those tapes)
2) Snarl
3) Depthcharge
4) Bisk (robot to lobster)
5) Mainframe (Blaster remold)


Leader
1) BW Megatron
2) BW Optimus Primal
3) G1 Grimlock (Megatron Remold)


Commander
1) Sludge

Titan
1) Orcanoch - Robot to whale to base - Squirts water. ;)


This turned out a little less BW heavy than I intended but with this team I think G1 Beasts mixed in or as remolds is the likely thing we'd see.


-ZacWilliam, does not imagine the above will happen but it was fun to write and I had a lot of free time at work this morning. :) What would you like to see?

Nothing but kings. King Atlas, Predaking, Kingbolt, Dinoking...but there aren't a whole year's worth of kings, so we'll have to expand it to other people who are in charge of things. Dirt Boss, Missile Master, Command Ravage, Leader-1. That kind of thing.

Both Snarl & Sludge would be 22cm tall roughly in WFCT scale. Pretty hard to do if they're non-SS Voyager and Commander respectively. =/ Swoop would also be about ER Optimus Prime sized, excluding wings/head crest.

Just to mess with us the line will be based on the Megatron Vs Primal pack-in comic/early bios story.


Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

The New Series will be Beast Wars but it will have a twist where the Maximals and Predacons land on a planet where organic life has gone extinct and to survive the mechanized landscape they have to scan the most powerful local vehicle forms, which coincidentally look exactly like the characters from the first part of G1.

 

The rallying cry for the Maximals is "Truk not...other truk..."

If it is an animal kingdom theme, I'd like to see:

 

  • Really good versions of BW Optimus and Megatron. I assume they'd probably be the season 1 versions, but what I wouldn't give for a Commander class TM2 Megatron...
  • Show-scale versions of as many of the BW characters as possible. Unlike G1, a lot of the BW toys are still good toys today, which is why I never had any strong desire for BW updates. The attention to scale in SS and WfC changes things. I'd love to see a full set of the show characters that better match the way they size up to each other in the show. The Predacons especially need some love.
  • All the cassettes. In rough order of preference, Buzzsaw (with Glit/SG Ravage), Overbite & Slugfest, Beastbox & Squawktalk, Cobalt Sentries, Blaster's cassettes.
  • Deluxe Insecticons. I would have liked to get the remaining 3 in Legends size to go with the main 3 and Chop Shop, but Deluxes for all four would be good.
  • The Firecons. PotP Cindersaur shows somebody remembers them.
  • Fangry, Horri-Bull, and Squeezeplay. With bodies this time.
  • The Pretender Beasts, presumably sans shells.
  • Cybertron Scourge. Who doesn't love a three-headed dragon? He can start a new trend: UT with elbows. Knees are optional.
  • Leobreaker could be really cool if they could manage a Savage Claw mode that would work with Galaxy Upgrade Optimus.
  • Victory Saber, probably as a Commander class. I won't be upset if Saber loses the Brainmaster functionality, but I'd really like to at least see Saber with his Star Saber upgrade and Victory Leo.
  • Deathsaurus as a Leader or Commander.
  • Titan Monstructor, with all six members. Presumably no shells, but would be great if they could work them in somehow without having Monstructor be tiny compared to the other combiners again.
  • Can't see it ever happening, but Tidal Whale would be neat to see. Er... Titan Wave. I mean... Oh, you know what I mean.

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.

What I wonder is what the Weaponizers/Modulator equivalent would be in a Beast Themed toyline? Swarmizers, maybe? Mini combiners like RiD Chop Shop? Are there a set of characters or toys that match this play pattern and don't have toys yet???

Also I want a whole slew of Novel Mechanimal characters but I'll take a bunch of G1 noncharacters from the 80s I guess. And Legends Class. I'd like Legends Class back.
