@  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)

It struck me yesterday as I was at work and glanced at a promotional poster for Dark Phoenix...the thing that kept me from even giving it a chance like I did Apocalypse.

 

The Dark Phoenix outfit. That same outfit from X3. It never clicked before but a lot of the problems I have with the movie interpretation of the Phoenix is how absolutely wrong they get the outfit. Now I get it, putting a woman into skin tight spandex with thigh highs and elbow gloves is not the kind of thing you typically see in what is obstinately a family action feature. But for me, it's the missing sash around the waist. That's kind of iconic to the whole Phoenix look and giving her a red goth style jacket and dress in replacement doesn't click in the slightest. She feels more like a missing member of the Hellfire Club rather than a potent psychic entity.

From what I've heard the first season of the Marvel Action Hour humiliated Marvel, to the point they themselves were mocking it. There's an issue of Fantastic Four where someone (I believe Hank Pym) finds it whilst channel surfing and laughs to Ben about it, who isn't amused. Season 2 was thus Marvel getting serious to fix their reputation.

The big thing I remember is how cheap the audio was. Can't get Avery Brooks to redo a line? Just ask Jim Cummings to do a 'black guy voice'. Same problem with Century? Eh, get Silver Surfer's VA from the sibling show.

I got the Bluray and watched it last night. I went in to it with zero expectations, so it's hard to say I was disappointed. I think it was better than Last Stand, but that's about all the praise I can give it.

Mystique looked like crap. Jennifer Lawrence as an actress has lost any good will I used to have for her. She was good in the Hunger Games...and don't get me wrong, she has some real acting chops. The problem is that she knows it and it's truly gone to her head. I actually almost cheered when
Spoiler


Night Crawler's mass murder spree screams character assassination to me. I get that he was angry, but dang! I just don't see comic Night Crawler doing some of that stuff.

I just always liked Famke Janssen far more than I ever gave any kind of shit about Sophie Turner. Just my opinion. Famke just seemed to put more into the part.

I will say Alexandra's Storm is pretty good. I absolutely love Halle Berry beyond all reason (except for Catwoman, that was crap). But Alexandra Shipp did a pretty good job, especially considering what little they gave her to work with.

I guess over all, it's not the worst X-Men film (in spite of Jennifer Lawrences best efforts)...but it's far from the best. It certainly wasn't the bang I was hoping for for the last movie of this continuity. I think they just really peaked with Days of Future Past.

Biggest complaint, Mystiques quip about women doing the most for the team. I forget how she worded it, but I immediately called bull shit. She was doing so well raging against Xavier before that. Him putting the team at risk for his ego was a decent argument, if sloppily capitalized on at best. But it's like they just slipped in that feminist SJW bullshit line in just to slip it in and it felt so forced. Excuse me? Are you saying Quick Silver didn't save everyone's collective butts multiple times, or that Wolverine didn't give it his all...or that Havik didn't contribute his share? Hug you!

Was with you for most of it, then you had to start with the insults. You don't like the scene that's fine, if you feel it was forced, fine, so did I. But feminist and SJW bullshit is where you pushed it too far.

Women are always saving the men, it should be called X-Women.

Particularly when I cited examples of that being utterly bull, what else am I supposed to call it but feminist bull shit?

Yeah, really. That should've been the conclusion of this continuity, followed by Logan tucked away in its own little gritty pocket universe, as a hypothetical alternate future to the good end we saw in DOFP.

 

I still haven't seen Dark Phoenix... I suppose I will eventually, but I'm 100% sure it's going to be dreck and that I'm going to hate it.

Ironically, Days of Future Past is where I felt this series well and truly jumped the shark. First Class was SO GOOD...and they just HAD to bring in the garbage fire that was the original trilogy with DoFP. Threw away everything First Class tried to build on, including fridging 90% of both teams off screen.

I love days of future past and the 'love letter' send off it game to the original trilogy, but I do agree. It dumped on First Class, which was an excellent film and dynamic.

I love DoFP for doing literally the only thing I wanted from it and retconning Last Stand out of existence. It's ending is exactly pitch perfect what I wanted from that film.

-ZacWilliam, is it a perfect sequel to First Class? No. Is it a great tie up to all the X-men films up to that point inclusive? I'd say yes.

They were originally planning on continuing the story. 

 

By the time they were doing reshoots though, I think they knew that this was the end.  You would think that they might adjust based on that.
