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.

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.

Studio Series 100 Titan Class Driller.

@  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.

I definitely would've gotten Red Swoop over Blue Swoop just for cohesive combiner color purposes, but too late.

I know there's no mention on the site but I wonder if these will come with Prime Masters.

 

Edit: Wait never mind, the Throne of Primes Primal PMs are exclusive to the set, so if anything it'd be clear versions of two shelf warmers.

If Red Swoop had gotten an original new name or character I'd be sold in an instant. As just a toy-based recollor... eh, maybe... if the look speaks to me.

-ZacWilliam, I might sell it to myself if I imagine Swoop was once a two-headed robo-pterosaur like movie Strafe and then was accidentally split by some weird McGuffin of the week Superman-style into Red Swoop and Blue Swoop... that would do it. I really need some fictional effort on Hasbros part to sell my things like this.

Heck, if it's toy based Swoop then you can still pretend he's a two headed robo-pterosaur.

Welp, hopefully these will be as plentiful as the Amazon exclusives because I need that Ricochet for Elita-1nfinite.

 

As for Red Swoop? Maybe pre-mutation Ravenus? But then again current Swoop is already in Ravenus colors so maybe this is Swoop and regular PotP Swoop is Ravenus?

Sweet. Now Elita and Inferno don't have to share limbs.

Elita, Firestar, Moonracer, Jazz and Ricochet

Inferno, Alpha Bravo, Rook, Wreck-Gar, and one of the Swoops.

Now just give me four more Decepticon limbs so Starscream and Cyclonus don't have to share.

PLEASE!

-ZacWilliam, Ravenus makes sense for a Swoop rename, and Divebomb might be a fun option. It's not one hundred percent applicable but I'd also love "Ravenspar" to get reused.

A TFW2005 user brought up a tantalizing if unlikely idea: perhaps one day in a similar fashion Hasbro could end up releasing the Ironfist version of the Combiner Wars Rook mold.

Y'know for that matter, the unreleased Hoist, Demolishor, and Landfill toolings would also be nice.

Were there any sketches or pictures of these? I've seen the Demolishor one but I've never seen the toolings for Ironfist, Hoist and Landfill.

Hoist I KIND of know from the SG story but I don't know if it was a funpub head or an actual tooling.

We've never seen photos or anything of them, no, we just have the testimony of people who learned about them while working with Fun Pub (and the SG comic art in the case of Rook's Brawl/Ironfistclad head and Trailbreaker's Hoist head). They're all reportedly built-in pretools.

Unlike his fellow Dinobots, Red Swoop does not find revelry in destruction or fighting. In fact he disdains those things and often only follows his brethren so that he can attempt to undo their chaos. Swooping over the red flames left in their wake, he unleashes his water tanks to douse the blaze. He then finds nearby lakes or other bodies of water to refill with a giant gulp of his beak-like mouth.

Red Swoop finds more suitable companionship with Inferno and his troop of rescuers, and has adopted the red from their color scheme as part of his own. While Grimlock japes and derides by saying it makes him look even more like a Dinobot, Red Swoop denies the assertion.

Acknowledging Red Swoop's dedication, Inferno on occasion invites him to form the position of left arm when the rescuers form their combined mode.

I do like the idea of a black/white/gold Jazz mold if that's what Ricochet is, as it would fit with my Starscream team (which at the moment is SG/Gold Starscreams for arms, 'Smokeout' Jazz as a leg, and I'm looking for another).  Having the arms and legs of a combiner semi-match would be a new one for me.

I'm still wanting my Monster Pretenders / Dinoforce retools.

 

I would be extremely excited about Red Swoop were I going to buy a Swoop.

 

(Volcanicus, Randy, unless your Infernocus is extremely misshapen.)

 

Nah, I meant Infernocus.  As much as I don't want to give one of them a Dinobot limb, now that there is an extra I will likely put one with them.

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 love Ricochet and am glad to be getting him. (That was going to be a pretty involved custom).

 

But I JUST made a red Swoop (from the KO, sure, but...)
