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)

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)

@  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.

Yeah, I'm selling my two MPM's and not looking back. They're just Not Fun. Studio Series gives me what I want from a movie line, and is actually funt o handle. I'm glad I got that version of VW Bee and never considered the MPM one.

I find the MPM Bee much, much less infuriating than the Studio one, but also I hate the Studio one, so.

 

Ironhide is my only big disappointment from MPM so far. He is so, so gorgeous to look at, but such a flawed, flawed toy.

 

Otherwise, they're definitely the best Prime, Camaro Bee and Barricade I've ever owned.

Yeah, Ironhide is the only real failure of the line. Bee and Barricade are both great, Prime is mostly great other than the issues with the cab in vehicle mode, and VW Bee is good but really needs some better instructions, especially on how to do the hands in vehicle mode. But like I said up there somewhere, you can't fix Ironhide by making some minor changes to pegs or whatever, you'd have to totally redesign the chest and arms.

Hey folks.  Somewhat piggybacking on my "downsizing the collection" thread, I was looking online to see what some of my spare figures are fetching currently.

 

When I came across the 1st issue of MP-01 Optimus Prime, I was a bit shocked to see what people are asking for this guy, with listings up in the $800-$900 range (with lots of watchers).  I have two of these.  One is MISB, the other is the one I've used to display from time to time over the years.  Is a MISB one really worth that kind of money?  Just seems a bit crazy to me.

Ironhide is the only MPM to be complete garbage but the way I see it, SS gets comparable results for roughly half the price and space and on a more reasonable release schedule. Plus, they're easier to flip between modes..

With eBay, you should always check the listings that actually sold, rather than just going by current listings. Looking at sold listings for 'mp-01 optimus prime', it looks like sealed ones go for $200-300.

 

Sorry.

Ha, quite alright.  I'm honestly not sure if I would part with it anyway, as my 9 year old has really taken an interest in Transformers.  There's just so many I bought doubles of in those years that I may let a few go.  I never opened either of my New Years Optimus Primes...so they're not doing me much good either at this point.

I can certainly understand somebody who's not devotedly in love with the movie designs picking one or the other and sticking with it. Studio Series has been a pretty damn good line so far, he said hypocritically.

I have MISB doubles of first release MP-01 and MP-10, and while I love both of those figures, I regret getting duplicates.  I'd sell them if I thought I could get a decent price, but actually finding a buyer is difficult.

Yeah this Megatron looks objectively well sculpted to the point where I, who never liked his TF1 design, absolutely hugging love it. I'd buy it easily, because it just looks that good and imposing.

 

Jazz is nice too, don't get me wrong, but Jazz being nice was probable since his Studio Series already look so good, so Megatron's excellency is more impressive.

So, Megs just looks like you basically put him in a "Superman pose" and unfold his backpack. I'm sure there are probably a few other little things in there, but that assessment seems accurate. Further demonstrating the infeasibility in translating that TF1 design into anything that works in real life.
