@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  Rycochet : (04 April 2020 - 11:26 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:51 PM)

Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Oh yeah, that was Fort Max. My bad.

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Pretty sure y'all were thinking of Fortress Maximus yesterday.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 March 2020 - 08:18 PM)

Baja Blast is back at retail!

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

Static took a deep breath as he stood to face the crowd. "Ladies and gentlecolts, please remain calm. While an attack did occur, as you can see, your foals are fine. The danger is past. If you feel you need to have them checked medically, please do so in a calm manor."

The tension was thick enough you could chew it like cold leftovers but the parents warily collected their foals. Most of the royal guard escorted them back to their homes leaving Major Key, Lieutenant Sledgehammer, Polar Knight, Forenoon Mend, Amaroq, and the STOMP team. Major Key stared up at the clouds and said, "I wish I could say more than 'This is bad'. We spent this whole time watching the ocean and it literally attacks out of thin air."

Static nodded. "What worries me is that I was thinking a pony had to be asleep to be a target. At least all the victims I've heard about were attacked in their dreams."

Static turned significantly to look Major Key in the eyes. "Would any foal who's outside playing in the middle of the day have any occasion to be asleep?"

Major Key replied to Static Signal, "I'd say no but pending on the age of the foal, some take naps mid day. But even ignoring the cold, which ponies from here are probably used to, I feel like this thing is getting stronger. We're going to need to put our heads together and come up with something before it's too powerful to stop." The group began talking over the various information they discovered in search of ideas.

Static sighed. He then turned a tired look to Brisk Iron. "I don't know. I just...I don't know. Before I go into a situation, I like to have a backup plan for my backup plan for my backup plan. Here...I've got nothing! It's like looking at a bunch of pieces to a puzzle and still not seeing the picture we're supposed to be making."

He looked around at the STOMP team, the team he was supposed to be team lead of, the team he never wanted to show weakness around, the team that at this very moment he was terribly failing. "Maple, I believe you wanted to interview some of the foals who were witness to the attack." He looks to Brisk Iron. "Con su permiso?"

Misty lands on the ground near the others, but her legs wobble a little on the landing. She's still a little shaken.

 

"So, um... what should the rest of us be doing now?"

Static frowns at Maple's petulant exit, but puts it out of his mind as he has more important matters on his mind. Taking a dramatic look around at where the Snow Shark had literally chewed the scenery, he then turned his attention to Brisk Iron. "Give it to me straight, Chief. Do we truly have a chance against this thing?"

Brisk Iron said, "It won't be easy but we came here for a reason. What I will say is that if don't stop it soon, it may grow too powerful to be stopped."

"If I may ask something, do you have the ability to make something akin to a large tent?" Amaroq asked.

Static looked over to Amaroq and cocked his head curiously. "Theoretically, it's usually easier to make technology bigger than smaller. The only questions are if we have enough raw material and what time frame it needs to be completed in. What do you have in mind?"
