@  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.

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.

@  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)

@  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.

His main power is supposed to be control over mattwr but he's always on fire like the human torch. Has he even done transforming stuff on the CW show?

He's supposed to have the power of Nuclear Fusion. This is why he's on fire: Fusion creates a lot of heat, AND why he can do the matter thing: all larger elements are created by fusion.

He's done it at least twice in the show. Once turning something to water and once to a pile of Jelly Beans. But it's treated as something he's still getting the hang of and requires both a bit of time and a lot of Concentration.

-ZacWilliam, he's "Firestorm: The Nuclear Man" made out of a literal Fusion of two people so the Nuclear Fusion theme is pretty darn strong with him.

In the comics, it was later retconned that Firestorm was actually supposed to have been the Fire Elemental (much like Swamp Thing was the Plant Elemental), but Ronnie Raymond's presence messed with the process.  Ronnie had a dormant metagene and that's where the transmutation came from, mostly.  (Pure-Elemental Firestorm could also transmute, but the mechanism was different or something.)

There are death/rot Elementals, in DC there is The Green, The Red, and The Black forces of nature. Green is plant life, Swamp thing is usually know as the Guardian of the Green. Recently they;'ve made Animal man's daughter into the representive of the Red, which is all animal life, and Dr. Arkane (?) is the represntavte of the Black. In Earth 2, least durrign New 52, Green Lantern (Alan Scott) was their guardian of the Green, while Solomon Grundy was the avatar of the Black. 

 

There's not tradtional elements, but they are elemental forces in DC.

Yeah no there actually is a 4 classical elemental split in DC comics.

 

Swamp Thing=Earth

Firestorm=Fire

Naiad=Water

Red Tornado=Air

 

It's since been abandoned but at one time, that was your split.

 

Ironbite-BOOM!

The idea that got canonized back in the day was that an Elemental was born when a human died in a fiery explosion of some sort while in proximity to some strong aspect of the element in question.  The Elemental wasn't exactly the person it bonded to, but often thought they were for a long time (i.e. Swamp Thing thought he was Alec Holland for a long time).  This led to the brief entertainment of the idea that Captain Atom was some sort of post-Classical Elemental of quantumness or whatnot, but I don't recall them really going anywhere with that.

Firestorm fans do not speak of this era. ;)

(more seriously, that's really but a blip in Firestorm's timeline. Just a couple of years, now more than 20 years ago. While Firestorm's changed several times over in the years since, he's always been the more traditional "Nuclear Man"... with full transmutation powers... ever since his return in 1993 after a two-year absence from the shelves)

This bit was at the very end of Captain Atom's own comic, when it was being cancelled to turn him into Monarch at the end of Armageddon 2001.

(Then, of course, they switched gears at the last minute to make Hawk into Monarch instead. But, yeah, the whole "Quantum Elemental" thing hasn't really been touched since.)
