@  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 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  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 - 11:11 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)

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.

Hm, a young woman fighting in a rebellion against an oppressive regime run by an old (very) white guy?  Yeah, I can see that as appealing more to modern audiences than a dude defending the monarchy.

She's introduced as He-Man's long-lost brother and meets him for her introduction, but otherwise it's just this entire rebranded set of MotU things and no interaction with MotU.

 

Well I mean, we have gotten pretty progressive as of late, but somehow I don't think they are going to create a show with a crossdressing main character for this.

I think I originally phrased that the other way around and missed one of the substitutions inverting it.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Yeah, but that was anime only. They were always girls too. (EDIT: I mean they were originally girls and only became guys when they got to earth)

 

On the actual subject of this thread. I'm interested.

 

I remember when we had that He-Man reboot cartoon on CN a while back. I kept hoping She-Ra would be introduced, only to hear it might have been in the next season we never got as it go canceled. :/

I am curious as to whether any of the allusions to the He-man franchise will be there. Adora only became She-Ra thanks to Adam traveling to Etheria to give her the Sword of Protection for one. And her Transformation shout was "For the Honor of Greyskull" including Castle Greyskull in the background of the transformation.

There won't be such thing at all.

 


Is she pansexual?
 
None of that either.
 

And maybe they can actually use the swords as swords this time
 
There ain't gonna be blood baths if that's what you're hoping for.
 

Lot of awesome people in the cast. I hope they can manage something cool that can pull itself free of the shadow of He-Man.
 
But also has lots of He-Man? NO
 
At any rate... bring it on. They can save He-Man for the inevitable "MOTU: Go Roar".
 
You can thank MOTU and POP being under separate licenses for that.
It's so convoluted that they shouldn't even be able to use the Horde characters (apart from Catra and few others)... yet they are using them.

My expectation is that they will leave space in the origin for Eternia and Adam to be something that exist elsewhere but she has no knowledge of but nothing of that will be touched at all in season 1.

If the show is successful and goes on to a second or third season I can see them maybe eventually touching on it a little or even using it to backdoor a second MotU revival but I think that's very distant future speculation at this point.


-ZacWilliam, I think it'll be pretty interesting to see where a She-ra revival without He-man goes honestly.

Here's my guess (warning-geeky brainstorming coming):

They've designed the first couple seasons (26-39-ish) episodes around the idea of avoiding her full origin.  We might get something like she is a horde general only to get a magic sword from with a partial reveal of her origins (coming from Eternia, maybe parents named, maybe a Sorceress cameo) and lead into a multi-season battle agains the Horde building into a climax point with a big crossover with classic MOTU characters from Eternia.

 

The probable hope is that the He-Man/MOTU feature film stays on track for a late 2019 (or at least Spring 2020) release and they can coordinate the reveal of the character on the series with the release of the feature film (SYNERGY!).  And after seeing how Dreamworks and Netflix have distributed Voltron...that doesn't seem like an impossible task.

Yeah she was kidnapped as a baby. Raised by Hordak or someone in his service (don't remember if we got any details of that) and was an officer of the Horde before Adam showed up and She-Ra happened.

I havn't read them but I think the recent DC Comics played with her Horde identity in more detail.

-ZacWilliam, being raised as a villain her whole life was something the Cartoon completely dismissed and ignored as far as I can recall.

This new She-Ra will learn that it's not nice to cause trouble for the Evil Horde.

 

Never got a chance to watch the original series when I was a kid, it just wasn't anywhere on TV. I keep meaning to check it out streaming, but revisiting my childhood era cartoons has tended to not go well so far. Like He-Man.

 

I did love Secret of the Sword growing up, the film that introduced her. I watched the Hell out of that VHS. It's been a long time since I've seen the movie, but I suspect it holds up decently well. It was much more ambitious than the standard He-Man fare in its plot and themes (written by a couple of nobodies named Larry DiTillio and Bob Forward.)

 

The opening song is still great.

 

 

 

Hm, a young woman fighting in a rebellion against an oppressive regime run by an old (very) white guy?  Yeah, I can see that as appealing more to modern audiences than a dude defending the monarchy.

 

---Dave

 

White guy?

 

 

 

 

 

He was blue, like Skeletor. Sensing a pattern of He-Man and She-Ra just not liking blue people. Skeletor fought to end the tyranny of a white monarchy, and He-Man brought his colonialism to take down a blue ruler on Etheria. In fact, in Secret of the Sword he and his sister reinstalled a white monarchy that Hordak had liberated Bright Moon from.

 

You're spreading a suspiciously counter-revolutionary message.

The picture above makes me really hope they do something cool to Hordak's design. That high bone collar is just kinda dumb.

-ZacWilliam, he's always felt weirdly muddy as a design to me. Never liked him much. Nosferatu face, weird robot suggestions, weird collar, shape changing powers. I'm sure he could be great but It could use some reinvention to really gel I think.
