@  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.

Is "From the looks, the series is a redux of Transformers G1" based solely on the images used in that one slide? Because that would seem to be reading an awful lot into those unless somewhere there actually said "redux of G1" or something similar. 

 

Well, TFW did up and declare "Beast Hunters" to be a Beast Wars sequel when we first heard about it, so....

"The Binder of Revelation is dead" is an overreaction. Movies, comics, toys and no doubt this cartoon will all be using concepts generated by that book. Just because Alvarez's stupid surrealistic plan of an ongoing continuity across all media didn't work out it doesn't mean the binder is in a dusty room. In fact it was the center piece of the writer's room!

 

My only worry about this is honestly the art style, would be a shame to have it be too g1-ish and end up with two toylines that look nearly the same instead of the cool variety we had the last 7 years.

I was thinking the same thing. The fact that two of the vehicles look nothing alike shows just how rough a mock it is. "Do we have something that looks like it has helmets and cool vehicles? Great, that's all we need."

I liked RiD in that it was unafraid to do stuff that no other Transformers show had really done (eg. not having an Optimus or a Convoy lead the team, no Megatron/Galvatron, useful and likeable human characters, amazing diversity of new characters for future franchises to adapt that weren't tied to G1 in any way.) Plot and pacing wise, though.... it could have been better.

Maybe, in retrospect, RiD was more of a placeholder show while Hasbro re-jiggered its approach than anything really designed to shake up the franchise, but I'm worried that the next show, in keeping with how Hasbro seems to be moving these days, will just be a G1-rehash "ONE SHALL STAND ONE SHALL FALL" type show...

Just because Alvarez's stupid surrealistic plan of an ongoing continuity across all media didn't work out it doesn't mean the binder is in a dusty room. In fact it was the center piece of the writer's room!

The writer's room said very early on they wanted to explore the Transformers mythos. It seems likely that Hasbro gave them the binder as part of that process.

And Alvarez's plan pretty much was Aligned. The idea that you'd have video games, novels, toys, and tv shows all following the same continuity. Early on I remember a lot of Aligned talk from Hasbro's end was how everything you knew before was being channeled into just this new mega continuity. They even said something about Aligned being it's own thing, entirely separate from the previously established multi-verse.

My point is that this obviously didn't pan out. Internal consistancy among Aligned's properties was never there. And with Alvarez and Archer moving on? It's clear that the plans for Aligned to be this thing that swallowed up everything else are done away with.
Since they left? We've gotten a three part story via Generations with no Aligned connections. No more Aligned novels. A video game that pulled from G1 and IDW rather than any of the Aligned games.

And now the Aligned show's replacement doesn't appear to be in that continuity either. At best? Ongoing Aligned fiction will just be ReacueBots. And that's hilarious, considering Alvarez didn't even want it in the Aligned continuity in the first place.
 

My only worry about this is honestly the art style, would be a shame to have it be too g1-ish and end up with two toylines that look nearly the same instead of the cool variety we had the last 7 years.

I think the latter end of RiD 2015's line gives us a good idea of what to expect from Cyberverse.
Stuff like RiD Starscream, Soundwave, and Bludgeon that are obviously G1 referential without being "Classics/Generations" style updates.

I mean, isn't this patently false? Aligned IS the Binder of Revalation, and there are only Twelve Primes, and the other one is (or at least was) Optimus Prime whilst he held the Matrix. To say that Aligned is completely obliterated like this is paying too much attention to the literal continuity of origin and too little to all of the concepts that actually came of it.

Nope. Not at all. First, I never said Aligned was "obliterated." Just over. Or close to being over.
Secondly? Aligned itself featured the Omega Lock. Which was taken from the UT. The Omega Lock was introduced in the Prime show in 2012. I don't think I'm out on a limb to say that the UT as a continuity was over and done with by 2012.

Fact is that Aligned, like every other continuity, contributed something to the brand. In this case? The G1-based PotP line is running with the idea of the Thirteen. That doesn't mean Aligned as an active continuity isn't winding down. It's just that another ongoing continuity took some of its concepts.
Yes, Prime Wars uses some Aligned concepts. It's not connected to the Aligned continuity family. No more so than Aligned was connected to the UT via the Omega Lock.

Besides. The Thirteen weren't even an original Aligned concept anyway. Given the role Vector Prime played in the very earliest Thirteen fiction? It's not unfair to say it has UT roots as much as it is to say it has Aligned roots.

Power of the Primes leverages stuff that originated from the Binder for its entire gimmick and back story, so while Aligned is basically dead after RiD goes, the Binder influences march on.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

To me "the Aligned continuity is over" just means "the era of the Prime/Rescue Bots/RID shared universe is coming to a close." It certainly does not mean "every concept introduced as part of Aligned will be jettisoned."

I wouldn't be at all surprised if "Cyberverse" is functionally indistinguishable from "Aligned" in terms of its lore and characters, but just won't be part of the same over-arcing loose timeline.
