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

I'm definitely excite for the AoA wave but also a little disappoint that one of the slots went to Sunfire.  I still have the HTS-exclusive version from 10+ years ago, it's still serviceable as a figure.  I would have preferred Cyclops, Rogue, or Magneto instead.

 

I definitely want a bigger Sabretooth, but I can still live with the ToyBiz version if it means getting a new character as the BAF - plz no Sugarman, though.  I hate Sugarman.

 

I'm hoping for Apocalypse with his big cape.  That was always one of my favourite ToyBiz 90s-era figures, especially because the cape/armour piece was removable.

So was Rogue the first use of a new female mold at the time or something. It seems if Im not looking at a 6x markup on eBay or elsewhere Im seeing her used as all sorts of custom fodder.

She really needs reissued in a two pack with Gambit or something.

Has anyone here tried swapping the AoU movie Hulk's head for the Endgame Hulk heads that come with Beta Ray Bill? I feel the logo apparel that AoU Hulk wears would look more appropriate on Endgame Hulk compared to those ripped pants. :hmm

So I never did see that Dani Moonstar. I went to several Walgreens on several occasions and never saw a single one. So I finally ordered one off Amazon for $30. It'll be here Monday. It's more than I wanted to spend, but at least I'll finally have my Wolvesbane.

It was delivered a day later than they said it would be. But I guess given the weather...I'm just glad to have it. I wish I could have afforded another so I could have Dani and Rahne at the same time, inflated Amazon prices made that impossible.

Ill wait for an X-factor Rahne. Really have no attachment to the New Mutants until they went on to X-Force and even then I really dont care for a good portion of that team.

Actually have been tempted to grab Canonball and Boom Boom but I already missed Cable and Domino and other than those two Canonball is about the only other member I would like to get..... in his later X-men uniform and preferably with a lower torso to switch out.

It's a modern New Mutants look as the figure itself is billed as Dani Moonstar with Head and Hand swaps for Rahne and Karma.

I am weak! Knowing that in order to complete X-Factor I'd have to grab some of the X-Force characters like Sunspot and Warpath once Strong Guys wave comes around later this year, I figured why the heck not! LET'S GET ALL THE 90'S X-TEAMS. :wtf :drunk

I now have Boom Boom, Cannonball, and Cable in Hand. Domino and Shatterstar are in my Pile of Loot at BBTS, and lord knows I'm grabbing the entire Strong Guy Wave once it hits. And hey I still have Caliban.

 

Well this collection went from 4 to 40 in no time lately. :doh

Same thing happened to me.

 

Though I still refuse to buy Cannonball.  I'm hoping there is a multi-pack release with someone like Rictor, as I refuse to buy one without a normal lower half.

That's the main reason I didn't buy Canonball either. Having the lower half being a blasting fireball could work for a statue but not an action figure.

I get it too. I kinda wish they had made him the odd one out of the wave and instead of a build a figure piece gave him a swapable lower half.

I got him and Boom Boom half off at Walmart with the post Christmas clearance sales so I didn't feel too horrible for paying for him. Though it did prompt me to get the remaining two Wendigo pieces as with Sinister and Nightcrawler I had 4 of the 6. Though as much as I didn't want Wolverine again and had no desire for Guardian it would have been cheaper going back to Walamrt than buying the pieces off of Ebay.  :doh

Posted 14 January 2020 - 09:10 PM

So went to Walmart and both the Spider-Man wave and the FF wave were out in force. I picked up Superior Ock as I find it to be the only Ock I really want as "himself". I've really never cared for Classic Ock, and his more modern appearances in the comics have been more visually interesting to me. I'm sad that I missed out on Superior Spider-Man as I really liked that run of comics. And I'd almost be down for nearly dead Doc Ock in a box from just before Superior Spider-Man.

 

But man I hate the BaF racket at times. I so would love to have DemoGoblin but like the Kingpin wave I really don't want anyone else except maybe Vulture. The Game costume Spideys aren't really my thing and I really have no attachment to White Rabbit and Shang Chi.

 

FF might be a different story. I already have Doom at BBTS, but I do like the FF as it was one of my first team books. It's not my favorite look for the team and would prefer a more flamed on Johnny but I do want a version of the team and I doubt my prefered choice of costumes would ever come about outside the classic looks. Or the looks of when I started reading. Masked Thing and Sue's Malice influenced bathing suit probably aren't coming any time ever.  I probably will end up buying the four anyways. And if that's the case may have to just bite the bullet and get Grey She-Hulk as it'd pry be just as much to get the arms she comes with.

If you're willing to be patient, just wait a bit and buy only the BAF on Ebay. I don't think there's been a single one that wasn't available a year or so later for less than the sum of the individual figures.

 

The BAF process is a bit annoying, but the alternative at this point is not getting those figures at all.

Well ebayed the right arms of Kl'rt since I really didn't care for Grey She-Hulk. But glad to have the FF. Reed is a tad disappointing with only stretchy fingers and Johnny just being a bit flamey. But hey I have the FF!

Here is hoping a 2099 Doom is somewhere in the nearer future.
