@  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)

@  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.

Been thinking about it lately, and I wonder if the whole Honor, Order and Chaos categories from the fan vote have something to do with the line. Like maybe each character is in one of the three categories which has its own gimmick or feature.

Each figure will include a slot to plug in a $6-7 price-point figure that will form chest armor, a la Breastforce, but will be called "Power Masters".  Sorry, the $5 price-point is dead.

 

The Power Master figures will each come with an accessory that transforms into weaponry for larger figures.

 

When transformed into chest armor, each Power Master will have a secret rubsign on its chest that reveals the emblem of one of the twelve primes, each representing a special type of power-up.  The powers of the twelve primes will be strong/weak against each other like rock/paper/scissors.

 

When battling with other TFs, each player secretly equips their larger Transformer figures with your selected prime-power, then Reveal Your Shield to determine the victor!

 

...

 

But wait, DBP!  You said twelve Primes.  Aren't there supposed to be thirteen?

 

SDCC, Hascon, and store exclusives!

Instead of trying to get top the gimmickry of Titans Return, maybe scale it down a bit to allow different minor gimmicks for representations pf the various Primes . Minicons/Micromasters, beasts, gimmicky weapons, multichangers etc. This would also give some leeway towards introducing varied designs throughout the franchise history.

Yeah but the gimmick ecosystem of TR and CW is so awesome because no matter what figure you buy from the line it somehow manages to enhance everything else you've already bought. It's pretty rock solid in TR and I wish the line would keep going for years.

I'm kinda surprised there hasn't a centaur in any previous transformers line already. Hasbro must correct this grevious error at once!

Thank you for being a Prime.

 

Travel down the road, and back in time.

 

Your spark is true, you're a pal and a confidant. 

 

And if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew. 

 

You would see, the biggest gift would be from me,

 

and the card attached would say:

 

"Your mission is futile, entropy will consume everything, so I have joined the chaos bringer to hasten the end of all things. I promise to kill you last, Vector.

 

Love, The Fallen.

 

P.S. My name is The Fallen now. Megatronus was dumb."

I like the Cybertron but played different angle.

Vector for time (an excuse for way overdue Hearts of Steel type TFs with mainstay characters)..
Solus (Apex armors...including pretender shells)
Onyx (Beast Wars)

Micronus (Micromaster/minicon)


The across the board gimmick is pretty much Unicron trilogy all in one line. A power of a Prime can be given through weapon, form, or used to unlock a power.
