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

Ransack. That's like another 20 or so.

Ok. "Local" where? Source?

Not that I don't believe you, it's just that this post is gonna make me drive all over this morning. ;)

-ZacWilliam, there are downsides to living somewhere with a half dozen TRU and Targets nearby.

Local here. Source me. Sorry, I thought that would be clear. I can't speak for everybody else's locality. In this case, though, your local is pretty close to mine.

 

Manchester TRU, Manchester Target, and Enfield Target all got them, though they didn't have much left and probably aren't worth driving out to (mostly Han/Leia and Anakin/Yoda). The online DPCI checker showed other Targets having them in stock yesterday as well.

I went and bought the model kits for Darth Vader and his child, C-3PO, from HLJ.

Let's see how my dislike of stickers compares to my dislike of the Black Series's cloth nonsense.

Cool found them all at the Newington/Brln Trnpk TRU.

After much deliberation I grabbed BB8 set and R2/3PO (the later mostly for my daughter).

Thanks for the heads up.

-ZacWilliam, I wanted Asoka/Vader but a I helped a friend get her instead (which is kinda double good as 2 sets was already more than I had wanted to spend this week.)

I saw the Hot Wheels vehicle set, looked pretty cool if I was collecting those.  Also saw the First Order TIE Fighter.  The ships look cool, but after the pics of the TIE and the not straight wings and $50 price tag on the X Wing I just cant go for these.  

 

On the plus side, I did find Black Series Kylo Ren.  Only thing I wish, and I'm sure its coming, was a removable helmet version of him.

Been seeing some restocking on single figures here, and some ACTUAL stocking on things like the Class I vehicles.  Walmart seemed to have a lot, so I don't know if they didn't have it, or just hadn't got it out in the past couple weeks.

 

 

I'm highly amused at the first major update to Hasbro Pulse was a "preview" for wave 2 Black 6"...which are already being found at retail (newest being sightings at Walgreens)

20th is last day to order kits from HLJ. They've got very little left at this point but worth a look.

Just wish the bonus discount wasn't just on Threepio, Vader and the speeder bike. Seems they're using the bad situation to shift unmoving stock.

I picked up Vader and the bike since they were on my list anyway but went back for two Threepios for customs. I did a custom of a Threepio tops candy head years ago using different colours and weathering, so I'd like to try a full body one.

Wondering if I'll continue with these given how expensive it will be to get them. The low prices from exchange rates was a big plus for these even if they're brilliantly engineered.

I looked at the 5-POA SW:TFA figures in Tesco saw the £10.00 Price tag - snorted a laugh and walked on.

 

I consider 5-POA to be a cheap Nostalgic amusement not a premium product so I think those can stay on the shelves then - perhaps they will over produce them and I can get them in the clearance retailers - but even they sell figures for up to £6.00 and I'm even sure I wanna pay that. So carbootsales 2017 then I guess. 

 

The sad thing is if they'd been a bit cheaper I might have been encouraged to go stupid on them - but £10.00 is just taking the mickey.

My 3.75 haul so far. LOVE them a lot (as does my 1.5 yr old daughter who keeps taking them from Daddy proclaiming "Guys!").

I'd be pretty happy with this group if I could find a Kylo and Phasma somewhere.

I saw Phasma twice at Walgreens last weekend, so it might be worth checking there if you don't mind the higher pricetag. Kylo continues to elude my grasp.
