@  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.

@  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.

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.

With all due respect, saying "these tiny, mostly structural parts follow the same design aesthetics" isn't a great argument for the point you're trying to make.

It puts weird emphasis on details as separate things rather than how they come together, which doesn't sound like what anyone else meant by aesthetics.

I agree that Sunstreaker fits a little better than Inferno, since the bulk of Inferno's sculpted lines are focused on his crotch whereas Sunstreaker has more delineations between parts. Plus, the bits of black help out since Inferno was a red robot man wearing gray briefs.

 

Still, I'm into the MP line mostly to see the engineering rather than filling the cast out or display so I'll buy it. Probably paint the black on Sunstreaker to match, silver the faces and add the G1 toy red shoulders while I'm at it. Hate the elf ears head though and will be seeking an alternative.

Just by that picture I wanna say that Sunstreaker manages something better than Sideswipe since he can look a little smug and braggy, but that might be because Sideswipe is just standing there.

All the "he looks like he's from a different toy line" comments just make me remember back when there were people who said Universe Hound looked more like an Animated toy and wouldn't mesh with their Classics figures.

I really think the head is driving the most noticeable difference.  Sunstreaker's head looks like it could have been pulled off of a DBZ Figuarts figure or something (very emotive in a manga-ese in style), whereas Sideswipe looks like a typical toy robot head.

 

Plus, Sideswipe is a lot more blocky, whereas Sunstreaker's body curves much more organically.

 

I'd be curious to see a more robot-esque head on Sunstreaker's body to see if that helps balance it out a bit.  Maybe a less expressive stance (gotta work with Sunstreaker cuz lawd knows Sideswipe is limited in movement/posing options).

 

Regardless, I am still hoping for a 3P head because the official one just does not work for me.

The difference in aesthetic wouldn't be so bad if they hadn't posed Sunstreaker to look like he's doing a little jig and going 'A-roody-toot toot, Sideswipe!'

Man, that smiling Sunstreaker face is hugging creepy. I hope Takara realizes it's going to be the next "Hentai Woody".

 

All the "he looks like he's from a different toy line" comments just make me remember back when there were people who said Universe Hound looked more like an Animated toy and wouldn't mesh with their Classics figures.

I remember when "open hands" were a big reason that Animated toys wouldn't work in Classics, and then a bunch of Classics figures got open hands. :D

 

I'll grant it was one of several reasons, but it was still a given reason.

If Sunstreaker's ears had just been given ridges or vents inside all that plain, smooth yellow, people might be singing a different tune about the head.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Well, that's more fun to look at than whatever Sideswipe is up to.

I'm really liking the looks of this MP. I've been developing a lot more interest in the MP line lately, actually. I guess I have a weakness for those Sunbow designs.

 

Where does the tiny leg-stowed pistol come from? I'm sure it must be a specific moment in the 'toon but I can't remember it.

 

It's too bad Chip doesn't come with a floppy disk to rip in half. (sorry if this joke was made already, I didn't feel like reading this entire thread)
