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)

I would buy that...

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 March 2020 - 02:03 PM)

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.

The white parts on Optimus end up looking weird in his eyebrow Cybertronian truck mode. :hmm

 

Also, all those cel-shaded highlights and shadows all over the two toys screams 'scratch city' to me. :doh

I feel that changing the upper treads to be "silver" rather then "black" ends up hurting the tank mode. The regular release they end up blending togeather to make them feel more like a single peice, at least in illusion. Here it breaks them up and while it doesnt look bad from the front, any other view looks weird with the now super obvious legs being the only non 'silver'

Painting on "lighting" is weird and doesn't make much sense (except for the windows; it's definitely the best way to do opaque windows), but the result looks vastly better than the previous versions of these mold.

Give me a nice metallic blue like the Spy Changers over fakey cartoon reflections any day, personally.

 

Although that Optimus with the moon and starfield painted into his windows was pretty hilarious.

Well we now know what would have been one of at least two HasCon 2019 exclusives had the convention not floundered.

 

https://www.bbcw.com...162&cat=&page=9

 

 

License: Transformers / War For Cybertron: Siege

Features:

  • Refraktor Reconnaissance Team Pack comes with Spectro, Viewfinder, and Spyglass figures. All 3 figures feature classic conversion between robot and G1-inspired Cybertronian spacecraft modes in 17 steps.
  • Combine included figures to form Refraktor camera mode. Refraktor is an evil marauder - not a working camera.
  • Special box inspired by classic camera boxes. Includes distinct instructions on how to work this non-working camera. Oh no! It’s KREMZEEK! He’s tearing through the package! The pack also includes a Kremzeek figure, a really annoying electronic pest.
  • Pack includes 8 weapon and armor accessories. Multiple C.O.M.B.A.T. weapon ports on figure and vehicle enable weapon and armor accessories to attach in custom configurations.

    Ages 8+
    WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts may be generated.
    Not for children under 3 years.

Assortment is set to include:

  • 4x TRA GEN HASCON EXCLUSIVE 2 (630509825226).

Sold as cases. Packed 4 per case.

 

Something with an eye-catching box with some nostalgia makes sense to me as a convention exclusive.


I believe this is the only Siege product without any numbering.

 

I wonder what the first exclusive would have been?  Cassettes?  35th Anniversary guys?


When I say Cassettes, I mean the Autobot Dinosaurs, not the ones at Walmart currently.

I did try the Toyhax 'cell shading' windows for the CW Constructicons, it was cheap and it actually worked well for them, seeing as in some cases they didn't HAVE any paint on the windows.  I'm not sure about doing a whole toy like that, though.  I'm probably going to skip these reguardless, as a turtle with guns and his Pet Sematary goldfish sidekick stole my wallet.

 

I do wonder, when it comes to the plastic-free packaging, if we will see that in this line, or possibly the next?  That might make it even harder to detect defects, missing parts, or variants in the store as you won't be able to see the actual toy.  I'm sort of reminded of the 1980's when a lot of Masters of the Universe stuff would come in cardboard boxes and it made it very hard to tell what things actually looked like till you had them in hand.  Back then I used to see a LOT of open packages in the store where someone had clearly looked inside, then not bothered to put things back.  Then again, the number of things I do with preorders mailed to me to save a LOT of gas sort of negates my entire point...

 

Perhaps packaging like Walgreens Shockwave?  He was about as simple as you could get in terms of boxing, but it did work.

looking at those "cel shaded" prime and megs two things come to mind

 

1) we're really hitting some wild paint/deco Renaissance between this and all the stegery, it's cool to see the technology in transformers construction expand in a way that isn't directly a part of the mold's engineering.

 

2) uhh they're very pretty and i want them lol


Does anyone see City-Swimmer? Is he gliding beneath the silver water? Is he creeping 'round a corner, hugging a wall, silent as a shadow in the dark?

I'm expecting everything to be in brown paper bags.

 

That's the way the stores around here have been moving towards if they weren't already.
