Christmas Maximus?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 March 2020 - 01:13 PM)

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

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:27 AM)

(But only pretty sure, not 100% sure.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:26 AM)

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.

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.

@  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.

@  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?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 March 2020 - 03:38 AM)

It was President Schwarzenegger, not Wolfcastle.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 March 2020 - 02:51 AM)

He put that in a speech in Springfields 'Do as we say' festival in 2005 too.

Playing with other color schemes...




Trying to get it to more closely resemble something like the only actual Ferasan ship seen so far:



This at least gets the engine lights and emitters into the right color, and looks fairly good.  A couple of the other shield visuals I tried either looked alright but were too far off, or got the hull color closer and the emitters looked off.




This one ends up with a hull that looks too silver, but does look decent overall too.

So I was going to post something longer here about how I collected Mega Bloks dragons way back when(mostly the blue ones) and maybe drop a picture or two, but I got derailed by finding out my website host shut down 2 weeks ago and I missed at least a month of notice, if not two, and now I don't know if I'll be able to get a copy of my site back or not, as well as locating a new host.  While it's not a horrible loss, as I hadn't been keeping it updated regularly anyways, it had blog posts going back to 2013. Archive.org should have them up through 2018 at least, if nothing else.


That all said, I really don't feel like trying to locate what I was going to post as a prelude to this, so without any further rambling, behold the tiny deer god I picked the other day(and which Discord folks will have already seen):





I'd been side-eyeing the Breakout Beasts for a while because they reminded me of the old Dragons line I mentioned, and when we were shopping at one of our regular grocery stores, I happened to find they had some of the "Crystal Creatures" subline. When I got home, I looked up what was in it, and found this miniature forest god was one of the possibilities.  From the Breakout Beasts I knew you could ID them by the code on the bottom of the egg, so I looked up this one and got it the next time I was out there.  (Of course, I also found the Crystal Creatures eggs were hiding some Breakout Beasts too, so I got a few of those as well.)  The slime was a bit of a pain in digging things out, but washed off easily enough.


The next series of Crystal Creatures has a silver or crystal dragon in it I plan to nab, IF any stores ever get those in so I can find the proper egg.  With current events, who knows when or if that'll happen.


So my collection isn't just dragons anymore, but this little guy was definitely worth it.  I think the next one I'm assembling will be too, but the wings were warped coming out fo the egg so I've got them between some books and waiting for them to flatten out some instead of having one curving the wrong way.  Almost thought it had pulled a Randy on me with the wings for a moment, until I compared the plumage and confirmed they were two different wings.

I didn't know these toys existed, did an american company import them from Japan? A deer with rose vines for antlers feels more like something from a japanese toyline.

I know, right?  That's exactly what caught my attention on this one.  But nope, it's all Mega Bloks, or Mega Construx I think they rebranded to now, produced under Mattel.  You can see all the Crystal Creatures figures here and the Breakout Beasts here. Polarpearl is the one I'd like to track down once once Series 2 is out in the wild where I can check egg codes, though something about the Wilde one catches the eye too.  I've gotten the ones I wanted from Breakout Beasts series 2 - still debating on the hippogriff from series 3 and the phoenix from series 4.  Probably too late to find the series 1 werewolf outside of ebay though.


*edit* huh, I was curious since I didn't recall Mattel being involved in the old dragon lines so I looked it up.  Mega Bloks was bought out by Mattel around 2013-2014, which explains it, since the last line of dragons before they shuttered that theme was the Dragons Universe back around 2011

I've been looking for the Crystal Creatures ever since you posted it on Discord, but have yet to see any store that has them. :(

Oddly, I saw a bin of Breakout Beasts and I think Crystal Creatures in the tat corner of a knick-knack shop serving as the waiting room to a Cracker Barrel restaurant. Prices seemed a bit high though.

Edited by Copper Bezel, 16 March 2020 - 10:15 PM.

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, I've heard they've been spotted at Cracker Barrels.  Other places I've heard of them being at:


Meijer(where I got mine)


Barnes and Noble


Might also be worth checking Walgreens and the Dollar stores.  It doesn't show up in Target's systems per brickseek, and Walmart dumped theirs after Christmas I think.  UPC for the assortment is apparently 887961803716(going off Amazon) if that helps any.


Honestly, I'm surprised they aren't making a push to sell the new stuff(or at least weren't before the current mess).  I mean, they're in eggs, and Easter is coming up...

Barnes & Noble's website is showing the Break Out Beasts in stock at our nearest store, but doesn't list Crystal Creatures.

Breakout Beasts birb






Only complaint is that the wings are warped because of how they were packed in the egg - and that they were warped in opposite directions. The older Plasma Dragons used soft wings but both curved in the same direction.  I don't have a hair dryer so I used hot water and some heavy books to try to flatten them, with limited success.  One is fairly flat now, apart from the tips, but the other still curves a lot more. No replacement parts either, so I can't just get new ones or do anything too dangerous to them to try to get them to flatten.


Other than the wolven-style tail, it really makes me think of an Azerothian griffon.  It's a great sculpt regardless of the failings of nylon plastic.

The proportions make me think more of BW Silverbolt, who also had massive forelegs and small rear legs in beast mode.
