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?

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

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.

@  -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

It's amazing how far things have come since that time, really. We're so spoiled for options, now.

But, I have to admit the collecting landscape was far more exciting to be a part during that Classics / Universe 2.0 era.

And we haven't even SEEN that Seeker set show up in Canada yet (I'm sure soon). Magnus/Skywarp never did, if memory serves...

But, since 2007, how many times have we seen the Seekers in various size classes (legends through MP scale), designs (Earth jet, Cybertronian jet, Alternity), and producers (Hasbro and Third Party)? A lot of avenues have opened up for character collecting over the past decade and change.

Being able to BUY them, like you said, is definitely a different story.

Could you imagine going back to 2008, and talking to the fandom:

 

US: So yeah, you are going to get some awesome stuff in the next few years.

 

Fandom: LIke what?

 

US: Everything. 

 

Fandom: Everything?

 

US: Yeah. Everything that came out in G1, expect to see it again, but better.

 

Fandom: Like Combiners?

 

US: Yup. All of them. Even some new ones like the 1984 Autobots combining with Optimus, or the Dinobots combining. Heck we even get a new huge Predaking and Devastator!

 

Fandom: Wow! That sounds so cool. I just wish that they would do headmasters again.

 

US: Yeah, they did all of those. 

 

Fandom:  What? 

 

US: Yeah, All of them. Even some that weren't before like Scourge, triggerhappy, Blurr, Hotrod, and Kup. We get an entire line of them that all work together and even little guys that you get to put new heads on them.

 

Fandom: Wow! Too bad they will never make Fortress Maximus again. They would never make a ..... Why are you looking at me like that?

 

US: Yeah, they kind of made him too. 

 

Fandom:  What? They made a city bot? 

 

US: No, they made all of them 

 

Fandom: WHAT?!?!?!

 

US: Yeah, They started off with Metroplex, then made Fortress Maximus and Trypticon for the next line. Then they made Omega Supreme and Scorponok. 

 

Fandom:  You're just lying to me now.

 

US: No, they totally made them. And most people got them on clearance because Toys R Us went out of business. 

 

Fandom: WHAT?

 

US: Yeah, we didn't want to grow up, but we couldn't stay a Toys R US kid forever it seems. IT died from the same people that killed KB Toys next year.

 

Fandom: What? With all the toy stores dying, where do you buy toys?

 

US: Mostly on the internet. It's how I ordered my Gigantic Unicron.

 

Fandom: What? They made another Unicron? Why would they do that? They just finally release the Armada toy in G1 colors! Why would we want another one?

 

US: Well, this one is massive, highly detailed, G1 Unicron that costs $500.

 

Fandom: A $500 Transformer? Who would buy that?

 

US: Thousands of people actually.

Fandom: Wow! That all sounds amazing! Do we get some great new Beast Wars updates too?

 

US: Yep. As Masterpieces.

 

Fandom: You're joking!

 

US: It's true. Primal, Cheetor, Dinobot, Megatron, Blackarachnia, even Shadow Panther, a toy-accurate Primal, and Burning Convoy! And Lio Convoy.

 

Fandom: That sounds expensive.

 

US: Yeah, they kinda are.

 

Fandom: What about Beast Wars in that new Generations line? Those would be more affordable. I bet we get a whole bunch of them in that line, right?

 

US: ...

 

Fandom: ...Right?

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.

No new Beast Wars anything (although I guess Cheetor being in R.E.D. kind of counts) does make one a bit antsy. So...

Recently got the Convobat with just the swords and both Titan Masters, so I had to make my own Ape X Arms from a spare TR Apeface jet.

 

...And then I had to give the Megalligator head a body (which prompted a surprisingly tedious Skullsmasher fodder hunt), inspired by the Petecon concept and SoS'.

 

...And then I had to give the resulting Megalligator a drone buddy (while I'd made my own custom of Savage/Noble, he felt more like his own thing), and realized that I had a spare Overboard dino (and the Apeface Titan Master could fill in for photos)...
