@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:51 PM)

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.

Pretty sure y'all were thinking of Fortress Maximus yesterday.

Baja Blast is back at retail!

@  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)

@  fourteenwings : (22 March 2020 - 11:46 PM)

woah I have no idea what's going on here but it's certainly breaking the "keep P&R out of the shoutbox" rules (which really should be enforced like... at all)

@  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.

So I was going through a Rolling Stones article about Wizards of the Coast to see what the had about the coming Magic: The Gathering sets when they made mention of a Transformers TCG coming next September or October!

 

Artwork reminds me of that mobile crad game so it maybe some sort of physical release of it.

If designed well I am 100% on board for this. Could be pretty cool if done with a cleverly designed system that makes the idea of Transforming actually a key part of the game.

“All cards are two-sided, over-sized and feel bigger, weightier in your hand.”

 

If this means they won't fit in standard 9-pocket trading card sheets, I may not have any interest.  Assuming this *is* actually a trading card game and not one of those other card games, in which case I won't have much interest.

 

If it's an actual TF TCG/CCG, with theme decks and booster packs, then sure, bring it on.  The two-sided part really makes me think it's that other kind, though.

 

(Uh, what are those called?  There's a name.  Gotta have a name.)

Magic has had dual sided "transforming" cards for 5+ years now and they're not suddenly NOT a TCG. Dual sided cards don't really have anything to do with the format of sale.

Hmm. I'm a bit worried about WotC handling it.

 

...

...

...

 

My experience is that if it isn't Magic: The Gathering, they aren't likely to bring their "A" game.  My bias stems from having been a Pokémon TCG player, a Duel Masters TCG player, and a Kaijudo TCG player.  Yes, that third one was just a relaunch of the second one.  The real thing that made me edgy was their time with the Pokémon TCG.  The short answer is that, while they did a lot right with the Pokémon TCG, they got caught lying to players about stuff.  Some very unpopular decisions were blamed on the powers-that-be in Japan, but when WotC lost the license and said powers took a more active role in the game, all those decisions were reversed.  The big one being the 15+ age bracket being eliminated and those players being encouraged to help with judging and/or switch to MtG. >.>

Speaking of Yu-Gi-Oh, I figured splitting things into a "Main Deck" and an "Alt Deck" (for things like Alternate Modes, Combiners, etc.) would be the best approach to a Transformers TCG... or at least better than dual-sided cards.  Still trying to figure out how their proposal works... since we don't have details on the real game yet, the other upside of splitting things is that if space were limited in both decks, even "Action Masters" start to make sense.

honestly, if i were to design a tf tcg from the ground up, i'd split each of the characters modes into individual cards. the game mechanic being that once you've assembled all of the modes, you can "summon" the character. and then balance the game accordingly. single mode characters would be weak. 2 modes would be the standard. six-ten changers would be devastatingly powerful to compensate for its investment.

A module where all players start at level 20, but gradually become weaker as the campaign goes on.  Eventually, all the players are forced to introduce new characters to play and replace the ones who started the campaign.
