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.

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!

My interest is at a real low for this project, because it's going to be the MotU cartoon people "think" they remember, rather than the MotU that actually was.

I think, this is just going to be one massive mistake, unless someone actually tells these people to do a brand new story with no connections to the original series aside from characters and basic personalties, other wise, He-men will simply remain a joke in many people's eyes (largely thanks to Money Super market), besides, I rather see a sequel to the last Masters of the Universe series than to the 80s one.

What I'm worried about is that Mattel will take away the wrong lessons from this should it fail to revitalise the brand, and blame MOTU as a brand rather than their handling of it, just like they did in 2002. The brand is the problem, and not case assortments bogged down with increasingly ugly variants of He-man and Skeletor.

A Turtles Forever-style crossover could be great if it was a smart piece of fun that didn't outstay its welcome.

Trying to pick up after the classic series rather than a She-Ra/Voltron ground-up reimagining does seem like a big mistake given how great those examples are, but if well executed it's entirely possible it will be as good as She-Ra. Theoretically. Heck, in some ways it will be better than She-Ra because Netflix's She-Ra is a superb show that, for my money, is a total failure as a PoP revival. Smith's MOTU seems like it will, if nothing else, have more in common with the source material than Neo-She-Ra does... for better and for worse.

I don't know what Mattel will take away from this, regardless of its level of success. At this point they seem to have an almost Harmonygoldian inability to manage this franchise. Hopefully the show will go well and they can just float along on its coattails.

I wonder if the idea is to stir up brand awareness leading into the movie by releasing something they're sure will have the old fans buzzing... while perhaps trying to take a cue from the Prime Wars Trilogy that Machinima did.

Transformers Classics The new He-Man cartoon continues from the Marvel US Transformers He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series, and does not include the Marvel UK Transformers The New Adventures of He-Man stories or any subsequently published stories.

I most certainly feel that Neo She-Ra works better as its own separate self, rather than actually trying to be She-Ra.

Having MOTU Revelation continue on from MOTU 02 does seem like it would have been the better choice, rather than the lighter, goofier original. Its more serious sword and sorcery/technoscience blend would likely flow better into what is very likely to be a far darker story than Classic MOTU ever did.

If we're lucky, this will be closer to the tonal shift TFTM is to the cartoon, rather than the grimdark misfire of the Prime Wars. And it should have good voice acting.

IMO there's nothing from the old She-ra worth keeping that the new show doesn't keep. Anything it's reinterpreted and reimagined is absolutely the better for it.

-ZacWilliam, I have to imagine the same would hold for the right team reinventing He-man in the same style.

Not only that but since they've said it's going to be "Anime", I'd think it will look more like 200X anyway.

Felt to me at the time like a bunch of those late 90s shows, really.  MIB, Godzilla the Series, Xtreme Ghostbusters, X-Men Evolution.  From what I recall anyway.

I just can't get behind the total absence of secret identity. "Only a few others share this secret" is just a huge part of this jive for me, and without that it doesn't read as She-Ra to me at all - though again, that leaves it as just "A really excellent show".

"Only a few others share this secret" transitioning via plot happenings into "busted, and now post-secret", like the DC stuff, I could live with. And I wouldn't be surprised if we see something like that in, uh, Masters of the View Askewniverse.

I've seen some speculation online that the Teela aspect of Revelation might see her discovering she's related to the Sorceress/might become the next Sorceress. That could be interesting.

I was listening to the audio from the announcement panel this morning on the way to work (it's the most recent episode of Kevin's postcast Fat Man Beyond).  It's very ambiguous as to whether this is an actual continuation of the original show.  They said things like "the stories you always wanted to see" and "the fight scenes you always wished you could see."  The animation studio is taking the lead on the action scenes.  The writers are literally writing "fighty fighty" in the script where a fight should happen.

 

It sounds like it's being made by people who are fans of MOTU and understand it.  I'm curious to see if that translates into a good show.
