At least the ozone layer is healing. unless this is a 0.0000000001% thing it's sounds like good news.

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?

It was President Schwarzenegger, not Wolfcastle.

Speaking to the press, Boulder Media Studio has confirmed working on two new Transformers cartoons.

While the title of one show remains unnamed, the second show is titled as Rescue Bots Academy. Along with the two new Transformers shows, the studio will also develop a new Littlest Pet Shop series and a series based on Micronauts for Hasbro Studios.


Did people know this was coming?

We know they are doing a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style YouTube Rescue Bots cartoon made largely out of clips of the previous show. I think maybe we got a name for that but I don't remember if it was Rescue Bots Academy or not. So no idea if this is it or different.

-ZacWilliam, we also knew Hasbro bought this animation studio and had them working on a TF cartoon of some sort but not What or for When.

The YouTube CYOA thing was announced as "My Transformers: Rescue Bots Adventure" and was specifically called out as using pre-existing footage. So even if the name was changed, I can't imagine why an actual animation studio would need to be involved.

'Rescue Bots Academy'  Does sound like it'd be a proper follow up to the show's events. It could still be the CYOA series, since that kinda makes sense as a 'training' type thing; but it could go either way.

Could be just to make a few framing sequences and composite it all together with new dialogue and stuff maybe? Or maybe not. Shrug.

Here's hoping not. I'd obviously be much happier with a new original continuing RB toon. Extra points if the "Academy" actually gives the existing RBs a bunch of new recruits to train.

-ZacWilliam, or uses or explains those "cadets" that turn up in one episode of the old show with no names or explanation and then vanish never to be seen or mentioned again.

From the press release:
 

The Studio, whose current slate includes animation for 'Transformers', 'Little Pet Shop' and 'Rescue Bots Academy' and 'Micronauts' for Hasbro Studios, as well as 'Danger Mouse' and 'Dorothy and the Wonders of Oz' (Warner Brothers), is ramping up to deliver innovative animation and storytelling across multiple formats and genres.


Reference to "multiple formats" could be referring to the YouTube thing, I suppose. And someone's gonna have to edit the clips together and whatnot, possibly add in some miminimal new material. And I can easily see a "Rescue Bots Academy" framing story where "you" are the cadet and the clips are an instructional thing.

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.

I wonder which of the possibilities this actually means:

A) Chase is not in Rescue Bots Academy

B) Chase has been recast in RBA

C) RBA is only a CYOA clip show for YouTube and doesn't need new voicing for Chase.

Sounds like he doesn't have a lot of solid info on the new show other than he's not been asked to be involved. The bit about it being cast outside of LA doesn't tell us much about it far as I know.


-ZacWilliam, it does feel weird to me that they'd recast a character like Chase at this point if it was a full ongoing show featuring the same characters...

Yeah, I mean, he really just seems to be making some assumptions going off the back of the announcement of "Academy," rather than actually having any information of his own.

I just find it highly unlikely they'd announced the continuation of Rescue Bots as the YouTube thing and then a while later announce some other, separate new show. I obviously could be wrong, but I think they are almost certainly the same thing.

Whatever this Academy thing is, it has new animation and assets being made for it for sure. Boulder Studio's job lists for the project were specifically looking for designs of that and animators with Toonboom experience.

If Rescue Bots Academy lives up to its name, I'm guessing we wouldn't see Griffin Rock, where Chase is stationed as of the last episode of RB.

 

Well, except every Sunday night at dinner. Not sure how many of those will overlap with the episodes, though.

 

I don't think Blurr or Salvage had specified assignments, so they might join Heatwave and Cade at the Academy? At the very least, Blurr would keep the back-and-forth with RiD going, and Blurr was answering to Heatwave in his last RiD appearance.
