On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

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 - 11:11 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 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.

Even then, I wonder what the Professor's role will be when Ronnie get's turned. Can't have Firestorm without him.

Actually, Ronnie was Firestorm without the Professor for several years before Didio decided to kill Ronnie off so that they could introduce Jason....

ah, ok. I'm only familiar with 1980s Firestorm. Never did read his newer stuff.

A bit off-topic, but I did a relevant series on the history of Firestorm (specifically Martin Stein's involvement) a couple of months or so back:

Part One
Part Two
Part Three

(Only Part Three is immediately relevant to the idea of Ronnie-as-Firestorm without Stein, but you might find Part Two interesting, too, in regard to a different Firestorm matrix)

Anyone read today's issues (GL #44 & Tales of the Corps #2)?

I personally found Last week's Tales of the Corps #1 to be underwhelming, but the second issue is very good. There's three stories: one details Bleez, the "angel" of the Red Lanterns (the woman with the bone wings). It shows the last minutes of her former life, and how she became a red lantern. The second story is about Carol Ferris and how she becomes (again) a Star Sapphire. It's probably the best part of the issue in terms of writing. The last segment is the origin of the giant floating head orange lantern, which is fairly interesting.

GL 44 is great, too. For once, a comic where the cover accurately depicts what's inside! The issue really is all about Hal, Barry and the Martian Manhunter. It opens with a scene showing the black ring reanimating J'onn on Mars, which is beautifully done. The ending is pretty cool, too: HIGHLIGHT to view:
John is among the ruins of Xhanshi (again), and surprise, black rings have arrived to resurrect its dead populace!

Hmm, I suppose that might make more sense than my take on the scene that HIGHLIGHT to view:
the rings arrived to resurrect the planet a la Mogo..
Signatures are overrated.

I also found it interesting that The dead lanterns see in the color spectrum. And Geoff Johns writing is awesome. J'onn has a great line and there a scene where Hal and Barry talk about Clark and it's really great

I think its connected to Black Hand (or the entity inside him) as referenced in GL #43 where he wanted to kill Green Lanterns because their will glowed green so brightly that he could never rest. Maybe it works that way with the rest of the spectrum too. Any intense emotion maddens a Black Lantern, and they're compelled to kill the person feeling it.

It also seems the Black Lantern's power level rises with the people they add to their ranks and is tied to someone or something that will presumably revive once/if they reach 100%

Kinda like Man-Thing. Except cosmic in scale.

I wonder who the Black Lanterns are trying to resurrect, though. Must be something big.

But if it ain't Anti-Monitor, who is it?

Must be someone big in the DCU.

And I wonder how Death herself is taking this? Probably well since they've probably retconned Vertigo out of the DCU...which makes no sense since Fury and Hector Hall are in the Dreaming.

Barry only had hope in one panel. A bit later, when J'onn was telepathically attacking him, he exhibited fear. This was done to contrast him with Hal, who still maintained his willpower.

But yeah, that first panel with Barry glowing blue had me thinking, "Oh, so that's who the Earth blue lantern is!"

I'm still kinda hoping for Kal-El to get a blue ring.
