@  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.

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)

Studio Series 100 Titan Class Driller.

@  Sabrblade : (23 March 2020 - 09:05 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.

Man, how many cards did you go through to get that many combiner duplicates but no Springer or Blitzwing? That is disheartening.

So far, I think the winner for disheartening is this guy's 15 Breakdowns from one booster box:

LootBox came in today. So is Omega just one big boy with no special rulings like Metroplex? He's just a damage sponge in bot mode and either pings a character or draws a card when flipped to Alt mode. And the fact he takes nearly 4/5ths of your stars means he can't pair with much of the bigger guys either.


Also disappointed in the rest of the loot.

My brother bought a box and reports that he's opened about 80% of it so far and no repeat characters and no repeat rares yet.

Mine also came today. They emailed me about delays, plus Snowmaggedon won't stop here, so at least that makes sense.

 

Also yeah, the Hulk thing is total space filler. The theme "Transform" is very loosely applied here.

Opened the rest of the box. Only 2 repeat characters in the whole thing. That was a good box.

Broke down and made an offer on one of the Omega Supremes on Ebay.  I figured the average going price of $30-40 isn't too too bad, for something that isn't available through other means (currently, anyway).

 

Here in Canada we get massively shafted for distribution... we haven't even seen the Metroplex set yet.  Some folks are importing that and Wave 2 but the horror stories of broken boxes are putting me off a little bit.

I did get Windbade! I only bought one box. The rest were random packs from around town. Maybe abox worth of those. So getting one SR and all the other rares was actually pretty good as far as I'm concerned.

Which is also true of some of these crazy "82 Breakdowns" boxes or whatever. But.

Picked up a box from the one store in town that's actually had the second wave in stock (read: not the store I preordered from, SAD EYEROLL). Second shipment had arrived just before I walked in. Interestingly, still getting Omega Supremes so there seems to be a healthy supply of the big guy.

First card out of the box was Our Lord Starscream, so... it was inevitably all downhill from there (even though Starscream is by far the most boring and Least Wantable of the new SRs). Have managed to assemble Predaking, once I get my replacement Torox from WotC. Now only one Aerialbot short. Got an Ironhide so only need Sunstreaker for full Fat Optimus.

Volcanicus I think is still at "don't even bother thinking about it" levels, and I can now make almost 75 Menasors. Did get the second half of "weird little two-man guy" so that was nice.

It was AB. I have secured him now, as the two boxes I preordered finally came in. That's me pretty much finished, at four.

Have at least one full set of each combiner - four boxes got me one Sunstreaker and one Grimlock, I think two Alpha Bravos. An infinite number of Menasors. Five Omega Supremes. -.-

Two super rares - Starscream and (yay!) Springer. I can live without Windblade because she's in the next starter set, but I'll have to take a deep breath and buy a stupid Blitzwing.

Not that I didn't enjoy our last trade, Maruten, but I really wish some people in the U.S. were playing. That would be AWESOME for me. 

 

I have an extra Windblade I almost want to offer you for Starscream, but I feel like the postal turnaround time between us is not great.

But wouldn't the starter set Windblade just be a dumbed-down version of the SRT?  Unless you don't care for the group Pierce 4 bonus..

AND YET after some thought, if you are up for it, I am too. I can wait a few weeks. Then I only have to buy the triple changers. I will throw in another rare!
