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?

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.

@  -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

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:38 PM)

Ransack. That's like another 20 or so.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 July 2020 - 06:18 PM)

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

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

Or do you want people to spam the Squawkbox with lists of 100 characters?

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

Oky, just one question: If I were to say "Yes, I could", how could you be sure I'm not lying?

@  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.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

i think one of us is misunderstanding what the squawkbox is actually for.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

and what is wrong with that? you respond to me to lessen your own boredom.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

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)

Is this a survey?

My biggest concern with the Silent King and Void Dragon are the little crackles of energy that are used to base them. Just feels like transporting them would be a nightmare.

I get the annoyance over Primaris being given all the wonderful new toys, but I'm going to save my outrage for when Chapter Approved drops and we get a better idea where current (inferior) models sit in the points cost going into 9th Edition against their Primaris equivalents.

I think it's kind of funny that the hobby is having its own Heresy split over Primaris, with Chaos still being 100% Old Marines (for now).

i think the marines in the shadowspear kit are bigger then normal chaos marines.  i just hope when they release the starter kits they do like they did with 8th and the different price points.

Shadowspear Chaos stuff is the same scale as the redone Chaos range from last year.  They're still smaller than Primaris, but they're not manlet squatty boys anymore.

Meanwhile I'm just over here converting Inquisitors into new Primus' for my Cult.

 

C0kNbXj.jpg

 

I have a sneaking suspicion that by the end of the year I'm going to have amassed a few more Shuriken Cannons with Purity Seals and bald, female heads. This model was a joy to paint and convert, and the armor is deliberately anachronistic. The power pack's connection is so subtly molded you can honestly leave it off completely.

 

Before adding the third arm and power pack to the model, it seriously could have passed for a Vampire Lord.

Managed to secure an Indomitus pre-order for $170 from my LGS and avoid the hassle. No GW bonus objective markers or coin but oh well.

It's times like this I'm glad I opted to go for an outlier faction like Genestealer Cults. Both Space Marines (Dark Angels, specifically) and Necrons were in the early running! Saved myself a TON of cash.

It was a joke. I might like Eldar in all stripes, but I'm not shelling out for an overpriced box set featuring models going on 20 years old at this point.

Yeah, you can still buy it from Amazon if you wanted - not sure why anyone would, though.

And I was aware of the Harlequin rules, but since they were categorically un-fun to assemble and paint for me, I don't think I'll ever be running them as anything other than a supporting force. Still haven't bothered to assemble the Skyweaver box I got.

I'm hoping for some Tyranids and Chaos. And a Tech-Priest -- I don't think there were any miniatures of them when I was into the game years ago, despite their prominence in the fluff.

Tech Priests have been in the game since Day One.

 

They just never had an army of their own before 7th Edition.

Neat!

I got in around 4th Edition, where the closest thing to an AdMech figure were the Techmarines (I don't think Chaos even had their own version). And this guy apparently:

A far cry from the weird "robot cthulhu" look.
