@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 07:09 PM)

Or Lee Derwon.

@  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.

At least the ozone layer is healing. unless this is a 0.0000000001% thing it's sounds like good news.

(But only pretty sure, not 100% sure.)

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

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

Dare! Dare to believe you can survive 2020!

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.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

ill be surprised if scorpy isnt the last titan

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 March 2020 - 03:32 PM)

I just taped up a shower curtain and took my first shower in three weeks. It was heavenly.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (26 March 2020 - 11:48 AM)

I would buy that...

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 March 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Studio Series 100 Titan Class Driller.

@  Sabrblade : (23 March 2020 - 09:05 PM)

I'll give ya 25 cents, a pack of gum, and some peanuts.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 March 2020 - 07:35 PM)

I can give ya twenty bucks for it.

@  Paladin : (23 March 2020 - 04:28 PM)

At least we haven't resorted to shouting "NI" at old ladies.

@  CORVUS : (23 March 2020 - 11:04 AM)

Keep it out, and I won't reply to it.

It's a sad world where we can't discuss our health and safety without it descending into political arguments...

@  fourteenwings : (22 March 2020 - 11:46 PM)

woah I have no idea what's going on here but it's certainly breaking the "keep P&R out of the shoutbox" rules (which really should be enforced like... at all)

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:13 PM)

Ugh, Chinese. Typo-city.

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:11 PM)

Rodimus, you're just flat-out wrong. Trump eliminated the Pandemic Response Team. Trump was advised in January that this could be serious, and he didn't listen. Trump spent weeks downplaying COVID-19 by implying it was a hoax, and then that it was just a type of flu. He was late to close down travel from China, and by the time he closed down air-travel to the EU, that was also too late. He has refused to take responsibility for removing the pandemic response team, even though he basically bragged about it some months before. He's also prematurely talked up treatments using chlorquinine that have not been properly vetted as yet, and he keeps calling COVID-19 the "Chinense virus" because he can't help but be a jerk. Face facts: Trump is an incompetent bungler. Period. Full-stop.

So I figured I'd post these too, maybe someone will find them neat?

Some background: Last year I started to toy with the idea of drawing my own Transformers comic. I had a lot of ideas (I ALWAYS have a lot of ideas...), and sort of wanted to do a G1-ish setting but with some influences of the good stuff from other eras and media (IDW, Machine Wars, etc); but still keeping what I thought were the cool and fun aspects I appreciated about the original cartoon.

I worked out the basic cast, their personalities and voices, the basic story, and then where it would go, all in my head, but only committed these sketches and a few notes to paper.

 

Anyway, here we go!
Sideswipe:
IMAG0573.jpg IMAG0574.jpg
First thing you might notice is hey, she's a gal! (how very astute of you to notice) Sideswipe was my favorite Autobot growing up so I thought it would be cool to have a version that I could identify with better. She's still basically a warrior, and a little rash, and quick to quip. In thinking up where her personality was I was quite influenced by Prime Arcee: very capable, mostly reliable, but when angered she sometimes doesn't make the best decisions. (like Arcee's Airachnid vendetta)

 

Also Sideswipe is a transgender bot. She was designed as a artisan/metal working bot (piledrivers!) with a male form, but the great war broke out soon after she was constructed so she and her twin sister Sunstreaker (who was constructed female) were given warrior upgrades, basically being some of the last Autobots who weren't specifically built to fight Decepticons. Sideswipe slowly started to transition later in the war, and the whole process is much less of a big deal to Cybertronians than it is to humans (I mean they literally TRANSFORM all the time)

She's "voiced" by Grey DeLisle.

 

Ratchet:

IMAG0575.jpg IMAG0576.jpg

And here's everyone's favorite crotchety medic! He's basically MTMTE Ratchet personality wise, which is sort of Prime Ratchet too. He used to be a lighthearted party bot but the long years of was have taken a toll on him mentally and physically. But yeah, he still has a kind spark under his grouchy exterior and keeps on going for that reason. Ratchet feels personally responsible for every Autobot death in the war even if he wasn't even on the same battlefield. Just knowing he could have been there and had even the slightest chance to save a bot's life sits heavily in the back of his mind.

He's an very old and close friend of Optimus Prime's... some say he would (grouchily) follow Optimus anywhere in the galaxy just to stay by his friend's side.

"Voiced" by Jeffrey Combs,of course.

 

I also started to draw up a Bumblebee (complete with mouthplate and the eyes of EVE from "WALL-E"!) but it wasn't worth posting.

 

I'm not sure if I'm gonna continue drawing and working on all this. Let me know what you think!

Ooh, I like. I really like the stockiness of Ratchet - suits him very well. And Sideswipe is sexy without not looking like a Transformer, which is always nice to see in female bots. = ) Looks tough and hardy, evoking a lot of the original character.

In some ways, these do feel a bit redundant with what IDW is doing, but at the same time, it's always nice to see a new take.
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Thanks! I put a lot of thought into Sideswipe's design to do exactly what you said: to insure I kept intact the feel of the character and make sure she didn't just look like an interchangeable female TF. And thanks for noticing Ratchet's stockiness too (I'm sure he'a thrilled about that!)

And with IDW it is sort of redundant (especially now that RID is on Earth...) but one major difference is that IDW doesn't have me drawing issues! Lmao. (nor writing them, but I think I'm the only one who cares about that)

Thanks!

I might draw up Bee next, cuz he's one of the ones that I wanted to change the most visually. I've had the idea of a BB with EVE-like eyes ever since I saw WALL-E (so since 2008).
