Christmas Maximus?

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

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

@  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.

@  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.

@  repowers : (22 March 2020 - 03:49 PM)

That's totally super biased!

@  Nevermore : (22 March 2020 - 03:00 PM)

I'm not. I'm listening to his own contradictory statements.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 March 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Most people don't, but it's still making enough ratings to continue, apparently.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2020 - 11:45 AM)

I’m not finding modern episodes of The Simpson’s at all funny.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (22 March 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Trump HAS been working on this, stop listening to those idiot "news" outlets that just spin everything against him out of bias.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 March 2020 - 08:52 AM)

At the least, they could keep it off of Twitter.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 March 2020 - 08:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure the capuchin from "outbreak" would have done a better job than trump.

@  Nevermore : (22 March 2020 - 05:13 AM)

Isn't it sad that President Schwarzenegger would have been the better alternative in retrospect?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 March 2020 - 03:38 AM)

It was President Schwarzenegger, not Wolfcastle.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 March 2020 - 02:51 AM)

He put that in a speech in Springfields 'Do as we say' festival in 2005 too.

I just find it weird as your posts sound like you're using "Sentai" as a genre and the specific show interchangeably.

Well generally... that is the case. There are very few Sentai (genre) shows that aren't part of the actual Sentai Franchise. So it's not that easy to refer to the 'Sentai Genre' (Multcolored team of heroes with mecha/large vehicles) without referring to the franchise that gave it that name.

DreamWorks is making a Voltron reboot?  I can imagine Po taking on the role of Hunk and Astrid taking the role of Allura, and Marty in the role of Lance.

About time they finally confirmed it.

If Combiner Wars can have robots with robot/vehicle/arm/leg modes, I'm sure a decent toy company could have come up with Voltron lions with lion/limb/torso modes that were decent if not show proportion accurate.

 

I did like the VF Voltron design, wasn't it done by EJ Su from the early IDW Transformers comics?

I for one liked VF and the idea of the different lions forming the head for different powers and skills.  The kids, yes, it was annoying.  Like it was stated as well I liked the fact that we got more than just a robeast attacking the planet, form blazing sword, game over.  I hope they just reboot the franchise and bring back Sven.

Yeah.. Hate to say it.. but I liked the corrupt government angle of VF.

 

And I wouldn't necessarily mind a new generation of pilots, just handle it a bit better is all.

I don't care for the vehicle one, but I appreciate that it exists and hope a new series makes some use of it. Voltron is not just a butchered Golion. There is that other part that, like it or not, shouldn't be left out. Voltron is both shows woven together into one universe, and it's epic. Note: I by no means think "epic" means "well done". It's not well done. But they tried, and it's a concept that could be done well if planned out from the beginning instead of trying to make it work using existing animation from unrelated shows. A Voltron reboot done from scratch is not a bad idea.

 

Voltron Force, however, was bad.

I remember watching the original Voltron back in the 80's, but I don't remember much about the story aside from 5 robot lions combining into Voltron to victoriously slice a robeast in half for pretty much every episode.

 

Never really got into the later reboots.  I wasn't aware that a vehicle one existed, though.

It still kinda is because the only thing it takes from the original shows is footage. The guys who added new dialogue had no idea what the original japanese dialogue was and just made up their own show, essentially. It's a total hackjob.

Thanks for agreeing with me? My very point is that they made up their show. Voltron is not is not a Golion dub and was never presented as such. It's footage taken from two different shows, and it is not just stitched together back to back. There's Dairugger footage mixed in with the Golion stuff. It's a new plot with a grander scope than either original show had on its own. And then they made some original episodes for good measure, and the crossover.

 

What I'm saying is, if a Voltron reboot focuses solely on the Golion portion then it's missing out on what makes Voltron Voltron. It needs that grander scope that comes with having the vehicle Voltron stuff happening in the same universe.

I enjoyed Voltron as a kid, but I don't think a straight modernization would be great. Give me something Venture Bros esque. Simultaniouly lampoon and embrace the genre staples. The original pilots and lions are outdated by younger hipper pilots, and a newer more powerful robot. Maybe do a jurassic world style homage/not quite a reboot thing. Eventually the new Voltron force gets in over there heads and the og team blazing swords the jive out of something leaving the new guys stunned.
I finally got rid of that big white box.
