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.

Edit: The first image seems to feature different figures than the rest of the piece, with a Starscream with big, Machine Wars-ish turbines on his wings.


Given the sizes, I assume that's Scout Megatron, Warrior Bumblebee, Ultra Starscream and the Ultimate Optimus Prime mentioned elsewhere.

If we're going to get modernized G1, I think this is the most successful attempt at that. That includes most of the Classics stuff. I like these. I'm interested to see the gimmickry.

They've made Shockwave look cross. That works in comics, not sure how well it works on a toy. On a different toy I suppose you could make that part articulated.

I think at this point we can definitely put "don't make anybody turn into a gun" high on the list of things that current Transformers creators would like to tell the original 1984 crew, along with "make at least six decos of every mold so people demand cheap lazy repaints".

I'm honestly surprised that Grimlock is in this assortment; I wonder if we'll see him in the cartoon.

Not entirely digging that dinosaur mode though, his T-rex head looks squashed like a pug or something.

RID's toyline certainly implies we won't get a ton of toys of non-show characters.

(Also that we won't get toys of a ton of show characters, not that I'm bitter or anything.)

The Warrior toys seem to be about the same level of complexity as the old ones, which is to say, simple but still more complex than the other figures.

 

I presume this will run much the same way as RID's toyline did with "gimmick stuff for big and small characters plus Warriors". Atleast the Optimus and the Megatron seem much more well de-vised than RID's own big toys, probably due to the fact they're allowed to have more than 3 steps.

G1 Shockwave was just him lying down with his arms pointing over his head. I'd put this alt mode in about the same category. I think it looks neat.

Not seeing anything worth buying myself. If Generations is really going to end and this is what we’re in for, I think I’m going to probably have Transformers be less of a drain on my wallet in the foreseeable future. I don’t really mind the look but everything here is just a slightly different way of G1 with simple kid friendly gimmicks built in. It’s just not a look I’m into. But it’s also making me wonder why Evergreen is even a thing now if this is the non movie focus. It’s just not too different from each other.

Evergreen is not a toyline. Evergreen is nothing that will ever ever see public eye. Evergreen is a folder of visual documents to be used as reference for the characters design and look across different media to create a visual link across media. Something Transformers has tried before but in a much more lax manner. There is no "Evergreen toyline". There will never be one. It just happens that comic artists and cartoon artists and licensing material people are being given these designs to work off. This is not ever replacing Generations.

People have been acting like complete and utter fools becuase the slide in the Habsro shareholder meeting showed a generic "Transformers: Generations" image under the "fan" age group for 2019 (POTP was shown for 2018)

It's just really dumb people looking for a reason to make themselves angry.

Nothing confirmed yet but sure seems to be quite a bit of “The Sky is falling” talk around lately about Generations.

Don’t we already have looks at Evergreen toys?

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.
