@  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)

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 PO'ed Iron Man 2020.  I have Spider-Man 2020.
I guess the next step would be X-Men 2020, which I know next to nothing about, but I do remember having trading cards featuring them.
 
Man, I miss X-Men trading cards.


Spider-Man 2020 isn't a thing. Neither is X-Men 2020.

 

Oh god damnit.  I was thinking of 2099.

Well, damn... I guess I bought IM 2020 for the blast effects then.

Just got Cannonball for half off at Amazon. Still think I overpaid. This figure should be an accessory to someone else. I think if I paid $5 I might not feel ripped off.

As far as a 2099 wave, it probably wouldnt be X-men centered. To be honest very few of the 2099 X-men are that rememberable. But I could see a line based on 2099 overall. I mean easy Doom retool right there. Release a redo of Miguel in classic 2099 colors, Punisher, Bloodhawk or whatever X-men they choose, BaF Hulk 2099 and get a vehicle series Ghost Rider 2099.

X-men 2099 I'd take Skullfire, La Lunatica and Bloodhawk and maybe Metal Head. Halloween Jack would be cool too.

-ZacWilliam, basically Skullfire was the protagonist/one I'd most one to buy.

I'd definitely buy Skullfire, Bloodhawk, Metal Head, and Meanstreak.

 

Then, since I'm 4 deep at that point, I'd probably buy the rest of the team I can't remember just to round it off.

 

Which works out well, since I could see either Bloodhawk or Metal Head as the BAF anyway.

So, these were apparently back in the Hasbro booth next to a bunch of the kids stuff that they weren't pushing the press on (like Maximum Venom).  Reportedly 4", but details are sparse given NOBODY even acknowledged these exist

God dammit, Hasbro.  You give us an excellent blue Beast, but no alternate head.  Now several iterations later you finally give us the perfect Beast head with glasses and a book, but he's grey.  The hell.

They're just teasing us to be cruel at this point.

Did they think that releasing Blue Beast with these accessories in the classic packaging would have sold less?

 

I should want this.  But I just don't.

At least the tooling is there so maybe we'll get a proper Blue Beast soon.

I really don't want to buy Blue Beast again. I mean I love him but I don't need 2. But at the same time happy head and glasses was all I wanted when they made him the first time. :p

-ZacWilliam, I wish I could think of something it made sense to pack the Blue happy head with that wasn't that... maybe a Wonderman with Red Jacket and sunglasses from when they were best buds on the Avengers together.

Just got done watching X-men Evolution again and got to thinking. There are a few designs I'd love to see get a Legends treatment. From Evolution alone I know I'd want Storm, Shadowcat, Teen Nightcrawler, Rogue, Season 1 and 2 Wolverine, and X-23. Maybe Avalanche, Scarlet Witch and Toad on the villains side

 

I would ask what other animated Marvel characters you'd want but going back there aren't a whole lot of Marvel shows that stray too far from the normal classic or modern looks. Some examples could be 90's Doc Ock and Spider-man Unlimited. Not sure anyone would want anything from Avengers: United they Stand and their power armor stuff.

They could throw a curveball and grab some designs from Marvel Disk Wars. :D I particularly liked Wasp and Thor's looks in that series.

So looky here! Another major BAF Character getting a full release on it's own. It's almost if Hasbro realizes not everyone wants to buy into their Buy a Wave BS yet still wants major characters.

Even comes with post Spidey/Daredevil beatdown face.

To be fair, I think Hasbro's done a decent job balancing the BAFs and needs of retail.  I think stuff like Groot and Kingpin are a situation where they are popular characters that have desirable variations.  I don't think we'll be seeing a singular release for Warlock or Sp//dr or Molten Man or similar niche characters for which BAF is most suited for.

 

As is, I think if you are desiring major characters, Hasbro's mixes are REALLY skewing towards you getting a good portion of these waves to begin with.

No doubt there. But characters like Kingpin, Hulk, Groot, Venom and the like is getting kinda scummy to release them a year or some change later after pushing people to buy full waves of characters to get them initially.

Ill give that its easy to rerelease a previous BaF after the initial mold has been created and there are usually easy variants to push out like Red Hulk. But these characters are ones people would gladly pay a premium to get anyways. Personally do we need a BaF in every wave? Some waves would benefit with better accessories or options that gets taken up by budgeting in the BaFs. But if they were just offered up at their initial higher price point could we get blast effects or perhaps for someone like Doom a damaged head with a Doombot underneath.
