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

I've avoided the 6" line up until now, but I've decided to buy the Rebels crew; that's nice and contained.

I keep thinking I want some swtor rep, but I don't know who I'd actually want.

I'd prefer they avoid the trailer characters(Like the ones they made in the smaller scale), but I wouldn't turn down a Satele Shan.

Mainly I want someone who actually shows up in game more than those guys.

 

The easiest choice would probably be the HK units they've introduced. If they get around to making the original.

 

edit: Oh wait, it would obviously be Arcann. The antagonist from the current expansion who was in that fancy new trailer.

Maybe his twin as well.

Yeah, Satele and Malgus feel like the obvious answers, there.

My swtor wave would be: Scorpio, Vette, Treek/T-7 two pack, Kira Carsen, HK-51, and Theron Shan.

[Edit: I lied, forget Theron Shan. Nico Okarr is so much cooler.]

M1-4X would be an interesting figure. Although I don't think they would fit in the normal pricepoint. He would also require good joint tolerance.

Mine was lucky enough to get a few cases of wave 2 :p

 

I'm fully expecting mine to dump the line come resets in August.  Wouldn't be the first or last "Walmart exclusive" my Walmart never gets.

I'd def like a Captain Rex in his clone gear to go with Captain Cody. A 2 pack of Echo and Fives in ARC Trooper gear would be sweet too. Lando seems like a no brainier. We have about every version of Luke there is now, minus TFA, so let's get some other characters. I'd take a 501st Clone Trooper.

Nerdist has a preview of Hasbro's SDCC reveals.

 

The Arrowhead fighter is kind of neat, but I really hope the giant cannon underneath is removable.

 

Oh and look, another 5 POA Rey except with her goggles and headwrap! :rolleyes

Any new 5POA Rey is a good one for kids who have had a super hard time finding either of the existing ones. Hope they make it into stores, unlike the current wave.

Like the Nerf Gun A-Wing too. That inclusion is a GOOD thing. Kids need fun play features like that way more than exact movie accuracy. Toys should be fun.

I really want to see more 3.75 reveals, but I really want ANY of it to be actually findable on shelves darn it.

-ZacWilliam, so far no sign of Old Han, End Rey, Ackbar, Nein Nunb, Taso, Trooper Commando, Stormtrooper Finn or Unmasked Kylo anywhere around here and I've looked frequently and widely. All the stores just have half empty pegs and the same half dozen shelf warming background characters everywhere.

Dont know if it was a special store or what, but Im down in San Antonio and found a Toys R Us with 5 or 6 of the Snowtrooper Sergeant (Or whatever his rank is) TRU Exclusive on a shelf. Other than that, the 4 Targets and 2 TRU I was at all had the same shelfwarmers.

*The problem here is that outside of Ahsoka to square off against Vader and a couple of Mandaloreans (Jango and hopefully Sabine), I'm trying to stick to just a defined set of Troopers as a way to not have my collection explode. So I'm pretty sure my wants (which right now is pretty much a Snowtrooper and maybe an AT-AT driver) will get made eventually, no matter what the Fan Polls say.

Since I have two different emails, I voted for Hera (with Chopper accessory) and Zeb. I assume they're in the works anyway considering we have Ahsoka, Kanan and Sabine on the way, but I just wanted to encourage them to finish the crew.

I'm as cynical as the next, but they included BB-8 with Rey, and Hera would be a smaller figure too so I think it's reasonable.

I want someone from animation, games or text only to win, just because I'm not collecting 6inch but it's interesting to see characters from those other styles done "realistic."
