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.

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

In my time as a reviewer, I've only encountered one distributor that stopped sending copies to sites that write negative reviews. Most are smart enough to take it on the chin.

Original version. (The deal with Shout didn't include the G2 version)

There's also a MMPR S1-3 + MMARset and a Zeo-Lost Galazy set that are presumabelt going to be regular retail releases, as well as the MMPR-Lost Galaxy set offered through Time-Life.

And the box sets are the only way to get the bonus discs, which have the various TV specials, direct-to-video specials, and some new things, including a feature on the stunt team.
Oh, and the original Galazy Rangers promo.

1. Those are the same thing. There is no "MMPR-Lost Galaxy set". The Time Life set is the two boxed sets of MMPR/AR and Zeo-LG being sold together in one order.
2. They are not coming to regular retail. They can only be purchased through Time Life as a pair, or as two individual box sets from Shout! Factory's website. Only the individual season volumes set will be sold at regular retail.

Psyco Rangers are from In Space, and they show up again in Lost Galaxy. And Lost Galaxy was the end of the continuous narrative thing.

The whole series is available for streaming on Netflix as well.

Really "In Space" was the end of the narritive. Lost Galaxy was tied to it by pretty much a few things like Alpha, Bulk, the Psychos and team up with the In Space, Karone replacing the Pink ranger, and the Astro Megaship. Ok quite a few things, but it was the first season where it wasn't the same group of rangers transitioning to a new suit and zords. Technically due to the team ups almost every year the narrative could run until the last but epic team up in Wild Force and the Forever Red episode. Ninja Storm broke it with no team up at all but since it was the first complete Disney era show its not surprising. But They made up for it by bringing Tommy back in Dino Thunder the next year, the cool anniversary episode, and bringing back the Ninja Storm rangers.


Now I'm a bit sad that Samurai only gets a team up with the RPM red ranger. Truthfully with Megaforce's synopsis so far I'm almost thinking their going to pull a fast one on us and revive Zordon and Alpha through the Goseiger counterparts. Having Zordon back would account partially for the supposed Super Megaforce being able to use the Gokaiger Ranger copy ability.

I see LG as sort of an epilogue to the Zordon Era, it's a new story with new characters but ties up several loose ends and serves as sort of a "what now?" in setting tone for the post Zordon era with how teams would be. Most shows continue to build on the ideas in some form or another, even if they can sometimes just be seen as throw away details for long term fans. RPM is the only one so far that seems to be definatly non-canon since its hard to work it in to the normal timeline.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was something I outgrew kind of quickly as a kid (I was done with it by the beginning of season 3, I think), but I've never held anything against it. In fact, I really respect the massive mythology the show his built over the years; it's a surprisingly complex continuity.

When Disney XD used to rerun the older seasons, I recalled still enjoying the old MMPR episodes regardless of cheesiness and age. And even the later stuff really impressed me. What was the season with the Psycho Rangers? Those episodes were pretty great. And I was finally able to catch the finale where they killed off Zordon and thinking, "Holy crap".


I dunno if I'd be willing to invest in the major sets that collect everything (it's my understanding that the serialized narrative ended after Lost Galaxy and the show started doing the major storyline rebranding beinginng with Lightspeed Rescue?), but I might be willing to grab MMPR Season One since that holds the most nostalgia with me.

I still remember being blown away by the Green Ranger 5-parter when I was little...


It's my understanding that Fox was waffling on whether or not to cancel the series after "Power Rangers In Space"; supposedly, Turbo's ratings were so abysmal that the network didn't see much future for the franchise.

Thus, Saban was given permission to end the series on as epic a tone as possible: Adam came back for a cameo, Bulk & Skull got their "hero" moment, Zordon sacrificed himself for the good of the galaxy, and all the villains up to that point were either destroyed or had their magic abilities permanently neutralized. Two of the Megazords were left intact so that the characters could be said to have been going around to clean up loose ends, thereby allowing for a possible continuation.

Thing is, the epic nature of "In Space" actually pulled back fans (like myself) who had abandoned the series during Zeo and Turbo. This gave new life to the franchise, leading to Lost Galaxy - Lightspeed Rescue.

I had given up on the show after the first few episodes, I was 12 or 13 at the time and a bit too old for it. When the promos for the Green Ranger series started to air I couldn't help but watch it (which led to me watching it regularly until Tommy started wearing red). The Green Ranger was just so awesome to me (bad mutha green ranger with a dragon zord kicking everyone's butt, getting the hot Pink Ranger, wearing cool armor, and the evil guy turned good - it was too cool to be true). You can imagine how upset I was when he lost his powers the first time (especially because he had saved everyone all the time and no one could help him the one time he needed help).
