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)

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:35 PM)

One of the video comments noted that several of the crates on the train bore the same symbol that was visible in the cathedral in White's duel. If that was intentional, it could mean that White and Blake are, at the moment, on opposing sides (that same comment speculated that, going by the song in Ruby's video, White is a princess, and Blake is was possibly part of some kind of rebellion in turn). Also, that would mean that those robots are part of White's kingdom's army.

I am really having trouble telling if Black has a hair bow or cat ears, enough that it was a distraction through most of the video.

You and me both! God I cant wait! Just a month and a half away now, I'm about to re-sub to the RT page once this and RvB start up.

But yeah, watching all 4 trailers has me jacked and read for this new series! I wonder if the 4th song will be on iTunes soon...

That was cool looking, but with a number of obvious narrative issues.

Essentially, she went into a club, shook down an informant to learn absolutely nothing, then when given the option to walk away proceeds to kill everyone who, as far as we know, were not doing anything particularly evil up until that point. The whole thing was obviously an necessary set-up for the trailer, but it doesn't really do her character any favors.

Was that Blake on 'Yellow's' future-cellphone-thingy?

Also, Monty's really enjoying exploiting the recoil-based fighting styles, isn't he? icon-fire.gif

Also also... that's Ruby's voice?! icon-wildride.gif

Edit: looked around for a bit - 'Yellow's' name is Yang.

Yeah, Ruby's voice was a bit off I think. RvB has kinda gotten me used to much better voice work from these guys, but I'll get used to it.

Also, I think that place being a Night Club was a cover for that Syndicate working there. Possibly contract work with assassins and such, since Yang what looking for Blake.

Also again, I don't think Yang killed anyone, as everyone got up a ran/limped away.

... O_O I need to find where to buy a shirt that small that 'holds up' under that much pressure...

>_> but otherwise yes I enjoyed this trailer as much as the others... though I will admit I'm not a fan of the Goldy-locks story.

unless I'm completely getting the wrong indicators.

I was lukewarm as all get-out on this whole project, until I saw Yellow's trailer. Everything can be made better by ladies who punch things. Everything.

Here's a fun game; try playing out that scene from this latest trailer in your mind only with the genders of Yang and Junior switched. You know, with a man sexually molesting a woman for information, then offering to kiss and make up only to punch her in the face. Uncomfortable? I know I am.

Its nice to know we still have the double standard where female on male abuse is considered humorous.

I dunno, if the genders were reversed it'd be more then a bit creepy. That is unless the 'Boss' was like Poison from Final Fight and was packin down there, then I'd chuckle a bit. Honestly it really depends on how it's handled, Monty did this scene well enough to not bother me.

From what I can tell.

Ruby - Monster/Bounty Hunter, eliminating threats to society and tracking wanted criminals.
Weiss - Daughter possibly fighting against her parents organization/syndicate.
Blake - Assassin/Saboteur that has left her organization. Possibly arming a resistance group, or possibly being blackmailed into adding the organization.
Yang - Bounty Hunter tracking Blake for stealing the shipment, only to find out the shipment is weapons and those that put out the bounty are the real bad guys.
