@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)

So on Monday we're doing a reno on my basement. I'm trying to figure out a layout for my office that works and was looking for some advice. I've got 12' by 9' to work with, and I can move the door wherever I want. There are no windows. I have a big desk with 2 monitors and a wacom tablet on it, and I want as much TF shelving as possible.

 

I've been looking at shelves that are 11.5" deep. Do you think that's too much or just right? They're each 8" long so it seems pretty ideal to me. What do you think if the right amount of space between each shelf vertically? I want to fit Fort Max somewhere, but otherwise should it be 12" between each shelf? 8"? I don't want it to look too cramped.

 

Anyways here is what I'm working with and what I've cooked up so far. I have no idea where I will put Haslab Unicron.

 

Any advice is appreciated!

Anyways the burning question right now is ideal door placement. The more I move it to the right to make sure I don't walk into my ikea cabinet wand whatever, the less room I have for shelving on the right. Heck maybe I should put it right in the middle to be extra bold.

 

As it is right now, I think with 2 feet on the right when you walk in, I could have Unicron as a centerpiece either above my TV stand or chilling on my cooler. The cooler is about 2 and a half feet tall, so it would look pretty good I think.

Oh interesting. Ive mostly given up on the prospect of using the 2nd part of the desk. It mostly just stores piles of comics and graded exams.

Edit: and thanks for putting in the effort of taking a stab at a layout!

Can anyone post pictures of their display setup so I can get a sense of what works best?

Any pros or cons you feel about your own display?

I'm imagining your plan is to have your bots displayed standing more or less straight up on display right; not really interacting with one another?

 

I'll just say the more wall space you can preserve the better, but you'll also be surprised by how much space can be taken up.

 

If you really have full freedom for door placement, I'd put the entry where you show it in your diagram above, but make it a pocket door. They sell pocket door kits that install pretty easily, and it will then eliminate the nuisance of having to deal with the swing of a conventional door.

 

My toy room is about 14' by 15' w/9' ceilings. I built the big displays tailored to the items to be displayed, and worked my way around the room, but it's still amazing how much space Tfs take up, and it's probably the one display I'm not super satisfied with.

Once Haslab Unicron shows up, I plan on putting another shelf all the way across above the MP shelf, which will allow me to move my Animated shelf over. Unicron and 86 movie bots will then move to where the Animated shelf sits, and I'll probably expand the other shelving in that corner in general (since Scorponok will take up a bunch of room on the main level of the display).

Awesome, thanks for that.

The MP shelf is 16", most of the rest are 12", and the shelf with the BW MPs is 8". The big lower display shelf with all the Titans is 36".

Alright basement has been gutted. Office is on the far side there, and the door will be moved over shortly. I think Ill commit to the 2 feet over and go from there.

Edit: turn your head, apparently. Why does this one board hate iPhones so much.

Is there anyway that you can take some of the space from the adjacent room? Even foot would give you more options and walking room in the office.

Looks like the workers did 28 inches for the start of the door. So that the door opens fully without hitting the wall. Hm.

Oh well it looks good so far.
