Christmas Maximus?

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

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

@  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.

@  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)

Figure I'd make a thread to discuss the comic by those who read it. It's going to be an 8 month or so ride so I figured we could have it all in one central spot.

I'm not going to spoil it but I want to throw in my 2 cents

Blackest Night #1? HOLY HUG. WOW. I figured it'll be like a rollercoaster. You buckle in and the first issue would you get excited going up the top and it'd give you a hot tease for the next issue. Hug. That. A dozen or so pages in and you get hit with a shovel. In the face. Repeatedly. Geoff Johns Hugging Rules

I flipped through it at the comic shop...didn't buy it because the comic shop got screwed over by Diamond on the Black Lantern rings so I'm just going to wait for the Hardcover to come out. What a way to open an issue though...I knew this was going to be awesome. This should make up for the debacle that was final crisis last summer.

I have chills going down my spine. It's not often a comic does that for me.

Wow.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Ralph and Sue are the best Black Lanterns ever. The moment they were revealed to be Black Lanterns, that's when chills began.

And GODDAMN. When HIGHLIGHT to view:
J'onn told both Hal and Barry that they shouldn't be alive...better moment than the entire Sinestro Corps war.

Marvel's gonna have to step up with Cap: Reborn.

Edited by Internet Jesus, 15 July 2009 - 05:04 PM.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

NO, from what I understand, anybody who has died can be Black Lantern, hero, civilians, villains, aliens......... everybody. NO heart beat, no problem.... BOOM black lantern (hey atleast they are not picky)

As for the comics itself................ GREAT SCOT BATMAN icon-ironhide.gif icon-ironhide.gif icon-ironhide.gif
I knew Blackest NIght is gonna be a great ride and on the 1st issue, it started out as a big roller coster WHOOOOO
Keep them comming DC (I might actually stop by the blood bank to excahnge blood for money) icon-fire.gif icon-fire.gif icon-fire.gif

My Prediction:
HIGHLIGHT to view:
Noticed when the hawk's heart turn to dust, the black ring's power lever went up 0.01%(that's how they re-charge the black rings)....... I think this will become a major story point. Nobody knows what will happened when a black ring get's to be 100% charge....I'm thinking Armagedon powers

PLUS: the freebee black ring is great. all i need now is to remember the black oath

do we have to type with spoiler tags?

there's a warning on the topic about spoilers.

Either way, Ralph and Sue were super creepy as Black Lanterns. I like how he has her wrapped up in his hand.

I'm sure the only way to kill a Black Lantern is to pump them full of life, thus how everyone will come back to life.

No, I don't think spoiler tags are needed in this thread. I'll edit the title to make it perfectly clear.

As for Sue Dibny, she was of course a ghost detective until this. I wonder if the Black Lanterns just take over the body and warped personality of the person, or if they take over their "soul" as well.

I've been wondering, myself. I'm going to assume such, although seeing the disembodied spirits of Ralph and Sue confront their reanimated corpses could be interesting.

I've also been wondering, how do they (or do they?) deal with dead characters where there's no body? I mean, in the case of Firestorm, there shouldn't have been a body, given the explosive nature of his death, but they've just retconned Ronnie Raymond's grave into existence. Still, I expect it wouldn't be hard to find examples of characters that they wouldn't be able to do that for....

My kooky thought that was since these are basically the anti-lanterns the power level going up is actually them getting weaker.

It would seem that to get to 100% Each ring would have to 'kill' 10,000 people.

I haven't been closely following DC Comics in the last year or so, as much as I loved Blackest Night, there were a couple of things I was hazy on. Bruce Wayne isn't really dead, right? Didn't he get thrown back in time? So, whose body was in his grave? Also, when did Conner come back to life, and when did Pa Kent die????

I'm not convinced it's the killing that's powering the Black rings. It strikes me that, given what Scar said whe she slaughtered the other Oans that it's not life they're consuming with the hearts, but rather emotions.

That would make sense to me because it would set up a nice rivalry. All the other rings are emotionally driven/powered, except green, which is willpower, control over emotions. Green is control, black is cessation, the rest fall before those two.

Bruce Wayne is sorta dead, sorta not. That's the funny thing about the Omega Sanction. The body IS Bruce, but the details remain a mystery. One which may be crucial to the story.

Connor came back to life as a result of the Legion of 3 Worlds story (it took the Birthing Matrix 1000 years to fix him up), and Pa Kent had some troubles with his ticker when Brainiac lobbed a missile at him while Kandor was landing on the North Pole.
