@Nevermore yes.

@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

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?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:35 PM)

KUP!

Best Beast Wars Action Figure Poll

So someone suggested I post this here, and I thought "Why not? Why wasn't I posting a general announcement in the first place?"

 

So for the past several weeks I have been running a Best Beast Wars figure tournament. Figures from all over the Beast Era battling it out for the best toy of all time. 16 figures per wave, two rounds of voting, top 4 move on to the finals. Judging is up to you, for whatever parameters you wish. But it's recommended you judge the figure of the toy alone, not any media tie ins. Molds, colors, play-ability. It's your toy. 

 

We've had a couple interesting surprises so far. Terrorsaur lost with only five votes, against Airrazor who received nearly fifty. The Fuzor Buzzclaw has absolutely dominated every poll he's been in. And people in general are not overly fond of the Botcon figures. 

 

Waves will run Mon-Wed for round one, and Thur-Sat for wave two. So you'll have three days total to make your decision. Two days seem to work better and make things go faster, but it's a lot harder on me scheduling these. 

Also, in case you didn't know, there's a little square in the corner of each figure's photo. That pops out the photo into full screen, allowing a better look at the figure. In case you didn't recall who some of these more obscure characters were. 

 

If you're interested in participating, I would be very glad to have you, as would the other regulars who have been voting. The more voices, the more exciting it becomes. 20 waves to go. Let's do this!

 

This week we are looking at wave 1 of the Beast Era Megas. I personally am pulling for Arcee in her beautiful colors, but that will be a hard sell against one of the favorite characters, Transmetal Megatron. Will her prevail yet again, or will GPS strike and crumble his road to victory? There are 16 figures, and each have their own story to tell. Please enjoy!

 

https://www.polltab....poll/woNChx0zYH

 

The results of the last poll:

Coalegon 9 / Scorponok 6

Arcee 9 / DJ 6

Virulent Clones 10 / Transmutate 6

Elephantorca 9 / Dragocon 6

Titanium. If you click on the picture, it chould expand to full size to allow for a better view. Titanium Cheetor and Optimus got lumped in with the Megas. TM Optimal Optimus will be in the Ultras wave.

Well, that was interesting. I was hoping Arcee would do better than that. But I guess it's unsurprising when up against arguably the most iconic Megatron figure. The closest vote we had was BM Rattrap and the BWII Tako Tank. I'm glad the Tako won (I like him) but I sure do wish Armada Predacon had done better. 
 
We're down to the next 8. This should be interesting. The Optimus Primal and Apelinq fight should be neat to watch. 
 
On a personal note, thanks to everyone who participated. We had over 27 participants! That's more than we've had at any point since the first round. I am glad you are all enjoying this as much as I am. :)

Well, that was predictable, but overwhelming in the amount of support the show cast received. That was a total blowout for the US crew.
Megatron 24 / Skybyte 7
Inferno 26 / Survive 5
Blackarachnia 20 / Tako Tank 9
Optimus Primal 21 / Apelinq 9
 
This week we have a bit more diverse cast, with some interesting choices. Personally I'm pulling for Longrack and Tankorr, but that B'Boom/DoublePunch fight should be interesting. 
 
Match ups have been randomized, top 8 will move on to Round 2. Wave 10, FIGHT!

This is the final wave for Megas, and over all, has been pretty lack luster. I was really hoping BB would pull through, but Cest la Vi. We've got 4 Waves of Ultras coming up next week, so maybe that will prove to be more interesting.
 
Round 2 is live.
