    Zoids are living mechanoids native to the planet Zi. They have been tamed and remodeled by the population to be more functional as vehicles and military equipment.

    Calm down, it's a reasonable question to ask about the similarities between Voltron's lions and Cybertronians.

    It really isn't. Completely different franchises that only share a single attribute. It's like asking if Macross Valkyries were reverse-engineered from the corpses of Cybertronians.

    That, too, would be a fair topic of discussion.

    No, it wouldn't. Macross and Transformers take place in different universes.

    Comparing Transformers to other things, and other things to Transformers, is entirely acceptable here. You need to chill out a bit, bro.

    Once Disney buys every entertainment company on Earth, yes, all transforming robots will be officially branded Transformers!
    Cheers mate.

    Comparing them as toys and likewise here is fine. Suggesting they are canonically connected to each other in-universe is absurd.

    I have not seen a single person suggest that they are connected in any form of Canon or official way

    The only thing that’s been asked is if they can be compared to each other

    so perhaps you do need to reread some of this

    On the contrary...




    I think you're the one who needs to reread the thread. As in, @Altered Prime you need to read the entire thing, and don't just skim over some of the pages.​

    I see nothing asking for an official determination or canon information?

    He’s asking can they be compared
    In other words are they like life forms from cybertron Or are they like the zpods of Power Rangers or are they something beyond both

    Nothing suggesting a canon Association

    Looks like you’re the one skimming here buddy, Or putting your own twist on things

    Try want again?
    Dude who seem to be extremely over argumentative

    If you would further down the page you will see when I replied

    The difference between those post and yours is that you or being rude and argumentative about it

    Everybody else is just giving him the correct information not acting like this is a waste of time for a topic

    Well not almost everyone but still I’m just pointing out that The’s reply seem to be more attack then anything else

    I don't need to try again. The question has been answered and yet people keep bringing it up as if it hasn't been.

    I wasn’t asking you to try again that was a miss spell I was asking you what should I try again? Either way that’s kind of not the point I’m making here I just feel a lot of people are attacking this guy

    We truth be told I don’t really understand this topic or way of thinking to begin with but the way I see it he’s going to write a post and ask questions if he wants
