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

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)

@  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.

I do hope we get that orange with teal stripes Grim someday. It's something I bet FunPub might have done eventually, but with Hasbro it's a bit more of a longshot.

 
Hasbro did it in the Construct-Bots line.  So maybe there's a chance.
http://tfwiki.net/wi...#Construct-Bots
 
I'm not convinced that wasn't a coincidence.
 
If he had the purple robot mode chest I'd be more certain it was an intentional reference.

He barely has any teal, some of which runs a long the torso of his beast mode, showing through in a manner that evokes the stripes. Seems pretty deliberate to me.

Also, they were cheap and saving the more-accurate purple chest deco for the Takara release. Typical Has-blow suxxors. :-P

They probably have built in Beast Wars pre-mold heads to make a Magnaboss... That will never get used because they'll just do gold and chrome red Predacons instead.

 

Well yeah, because Magnaboss from the Predacons is just silly. There's no second lion to be Unit-3!

 

 

He'd just be a random Titanmaster packed in.

I kinda assumed that one was just an oversaturated version of his AoE toy colors, ie coincidence.

G2 Grimlock was my very first Transformer, so i really wish they'd repaint him blue already instead of green and gold and red and literally every other color.

Cutthroat -> Darkscream
Blot -> Gushaar
Slash -> Dinobot
 
Predacus Mashimus.


Dinobot is an RID character now! We're not giving him back to Beast Wars.

Every episode of Beast Wars will now have a text to speech voice dubbing over every mention of "Dinobot" with "Clobber".

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Rampage = Tigatron

Headstrong = Um Rhinox i guess? Using an A-lister kinda breaks theme to me. :p

So for the new Rodimus Prime figure. 

 

Did we ever get a look at the Hot Rod figure that folds into the chest? I don't remember seeing a picture of that from SDCC.  Wonder if the new TR Hot Rod figure could be configured to fold in there.

The panel slide show had little Hot Rod pictured next to the Rodimus vehicle mode.

He has the combined mode chest on his back, so unless you want a weird upside down TR Hot Rod as Rodimus' chest, the current figure probably won't work.

Of course, to me, the PotP Hot Rod looks better so I wouldn't try swapping them anyway.

I'm rarely stuck on Geewun, but in addition to the movie sculpted fake chest, PotP Hot Rod is the first to get the shoulders right, and that really has to count for something. I don't like either of Rodimus' modes and I still think the figure looks like a huge step up from TR.

Edited by Copper Bezel, 26 July 2017 - 11:31 AM.

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?

Eh, I don't feel like TR Hot Rod is useless. PotP Rodimus probably can't form his robot mode without integrating the Deluxe Hot Rod that comes with it. So I'll still use the TR Hot Rod to be, well, Hot Rod. While the PotP version is Rodimus on the "Prime" shelf.
