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)

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

Do you think Hasbro will ever make a new X-Wing toy (to scale with the figures, of course)? How many more years can they milk that old mold?


Ermm... The large Force FX sculpt is about as close to scale as we're likely to get and it's not that far off. I'm not at home to measure but I think it comes in around 1:20 maybe? In any case it's much bigger than the original vintage mold.

You are correct good sir. She is indeed from the Old Republic. You see her in action in the sacking of the Jedi Temple video. Though I'm not sure if there is any other appearance from her in game yet.

And personally if the Force Unleashed figures weren't TRU exclusives all the time except the first games initial wave I'd be snatching them up left and right. I'm still waiting for Bastilla and Nom Anor already. But if there is a wave of TOR figures they will be mine!

She is the Bounty Hunter in the awesome Star Wars: The Old Republic cinematic where the Sith attack the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. You should definitely check it out.

I've seen the Lego Talon and Fury kits, and I see here Shae Vizla is getting a figure (Natch), so can't wait to see what we get next. Heck, I'll even take some SWTF figures of some of this icon-fire.gif

In light of the spectacular new original trilogy vehicles that have come out in the last few years, I think the X-Wing is in for an overhaul.

They overhauled it a bit for the new TRU set with Vader's TIE. It's got a new cockpit and a new front end with a proton torpedo launcher and some storage spaces. I doubt they're going to do much more retooling in the near future, since the F/X version is generally considered to be a pretty great mold.

Far as I can know, she's in the Sith intro video, and getting a Gentle Giant bust, and now a action figure (which looks very cool), but is she actually in the game at all? I can't find any info on her being in it. icon-depth.gif

Well, anything is possible. They are releasing three, three-packs for the 3d Phantom Menace toyline but they are all old repaints, nothing new though and no announcements for anything further. The cynical part of me just knows they are using this to "test the waters" and when no one buys three packs of ships they've already had for years Hasbro will use it as proof the Titanium line won't work.

Of course, even if they do decide to resurrect it I imagine it would be rereleases for a while before they invested in anything new.

Yakface.com is reporting this will likely be a Target Exclusive, DPCI is 087-06-0846 and a price of 129.99. Well, at least we know it will go on sale - if this was a TRU exclusive it would have cost thirty dollars more AND been on shelves for five years.

How is it a Target exclusive? It's in their computer, so what, they had the BMF in the system before it was revealed as well. I find it highly improbable that Hasbro would invest SO MUCH into a big vehicle, tied to the biggest media push of the brand's year, and limit it to ONE store.

In other news, Vintage is dead in my area. Stupid Walmart got a "display set" of wave 5 (?) to tie in with the BluRay release....and we still have PILES of them. As in, more Vintage than the other two segments (Clone Wars and Movie Legends) COMBINED. Probably won't see a new assortment until next Christmas, at best.

Yeah - you're probably right. I think it was actually somewhere else that was trying to say it was a "store exclusive" and then the Target info popped up. I'd be surprised too if they limited the market and I doubt Target would want to gamble on something that big.

Well, "currently". I saw her twice a couple of months ago, which was handy because the first one had a pretty messed-up face.

I was hoping there'd be a big full-shelves launch with today's Episode I-3D street date, but apart from TRU's overprice-a-palooza and the same small handful of opened-early stuff that Walmart had last week, nobody seems to have anything new today. I'm moping at you, Target!
