>>>Shameless Plug<<< FYI. posted the last part of Quest for Tires in Allspark Pictures

@  SG Roadbuster : (08 August 2020 - 01:53 PM)

@Nevermore yes.

@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

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)

@  -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

There is always CW Leokaiser, Botcon Leozack and Deathzaurus, Dlx generation skullgrin or the Potp Skullgrin, Submaurader, and Bombburst, TR fangry, Legends Cancer and Bullhorn, the upcoming King Posideon, Either Gen or TR Sky Shadow, might be forgetting a few others...


I want LeoKaiser but never got him. I check amazon periodically to see if the price has dropped any. They aren’t. Same reason I don’t have Computron. For Skyshadow I have the CHUG version of him and that works for me. The rest, I was just never interested in getting. The Pretender she’ll just didn’t do it for me.

Meanwhile, despite no real Transformers being in this picture I figure they've had enough Crossover toys to get honorable mention.  After a long time, 0-0-0 decided he needed something more evil than simple interrogation and torture, and he decided to go ALL THE WAY.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Seriously, though, why do dentists wait till they stuff all the tools in your mouth BEFORE they start asking you questions?  I've never understood that.  And they say not to scrape your teeth with sharp objects, then they do JUST THAT.

So when I got Cog, the first thing I wanted to do was complete Fortress Maximus. I thought Sixgun and Metroplex would come next, but to my surprise, I found Brunt long before I ever saw Sixgun.

 

No big, because I had plans for Brunt as well, plans I don't think anyone's really realized (though Walky gave it a shot, but I don't think it was too stable). While I may think Trypticon is the best-executed of the Titans to date (not counting the non-Titan Titans, i.e. Devastator, Predaking), I know he's not quite perfect.

 

The biggest issue? That central tower.

 

The central tower always stuck out to me on the original G1 Trypticon, even though I never owned him. The tower was the biggest of the three, and capped off with that lovely orange tip, formed by Brunt's cannon when the beast was in city mode, or a central cannon in his battle station mode. Of all the weapons he was covered with, it was the one without parallel (literally, as every other type of gun was part of a pair in one way or another, but the central tower/cannon was one-of-a-kind). The thin, shorter tower on Titans Return Trypticon, even with Full-Tilt attached, just didn't quite compare.

 

So naturally, that was first and foremost what I wanted to recreate.

 

Unfortunately, Hasbro and Takara apparently didn't have the foresight I'd hoped they would, to allow Brunt to clip into the chest cannon the same way Full-Tilt does. (That is, unless there's some alternate configuration I haven't found yet which does.) You can sit Brunt there, but like Walky's, he's unstable.

 

Fortunately, there is a way to attach it that not only makes it more secure, but a big bigger as well, though this comes at a cost:

 

ePlpDwc.jpg

 

SSs8r3o.jpg

 

Put simply, Full-Tilt is the key. The downside, though, is that whereas I'd hoped Full-Tilt would get to roam free in city and battleship modes while Brunt fulfills his original role, he's sadly necessary for this to work at the moment. (Maybe someone who does 3D printing can make a new part for Brunt's pieces to plug into, like something that can plug into the back of the cannon frame that holds Full-Tilt.)

 

Now, there are different ways to go about this, depending on how tall you want the tower to be.

 

There's the simple cannon and its pivot:

 

rzmOSGV.jpg

 

My personal favorite, with Brunt's rear tank treads underneath:

 

uFKVshl.jpg

 

You can also position it to sit further back, a little closer to the other towers:

 

a4VyQcv.jpg

 

JkbzT9m.jpg

 

Or go all the way, and use Brunt's torso to add even more height:

 

P13Y11d.jpg

 

Or you can remove the treads from the equation:

 

toNAha9.jpg

 

(And if you think these look a bit weird for a tower, don't forget what the original looked like.)

 

If you keep it low and simple, then you can use the torso and/or treads for other little bits which I think fill out the city mode nicely with little mini-towers, transmitters, or whatever:

 

lX8ftbx.jpg

 

E0MXwp7.jpg

 

I like this one, as it looks like it could be either spotlights or loudspeakers:

 

045tjhz.jpg

 

lGue4WO.jpg

 

Of course, city mode is just one mode in which Brunt helps reclaim Trypticon's former glory. Then we have battle station/battleship:

 

k7OJacc.jpg

 

Brunt's arms fit nicely down near the nose of the ship:

 

QpGCerr.jpg

 

I've been using the Combaticons' HFGs to fill out where Trypticon's silver guns were on the battle station mode, but now, if you prefer...

 

ULdqhls.jpg

 

And of course, the central tower cannon:

 

xAsK7KH.jpg

 

I prefer keeping it lower in this mode, due to the pivot and all. It still shines, and frees up the other pieces for other uses.

 

That's all I've done so far. I'm toying with seeing what I can do in Trypticons saurian mode, but that's just gravy at this point. Besides, Brunt should probably have at least one mode where he can run free, right?

 

Poor Full-Tilt, though... c'mon, Shapeways or third-party folks! Free Full-Tilt!
