Christmas Maximus?

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

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

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

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

@  Bass X0 : (28 March 2020 - 12:38 AM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 March 2020 - 03:32 PM)

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.

It's a good cast, and a lot of them are people that Kevin Smith already has a relationship with.

 

I still have low expectations for the show being good.

Masters of the Multiverse is so good. The art in their Filmation issue could have been slightly more consistent, but I think Seeley captured the characters' voices well.

Next month is the penultimate issue - visiting the original mini-comics. I really hope another book spins out of this. Continuing team-ups would be ideal, but I'd happily read more of any of these He-Mans.

I'm just glad that Filmation He-Man didn't just have a handful of scenes that were repeated panel after panel. ;)

Word is that this year Mattel chose the exclusives. The people behind Power Con may return to MOTUC if they feel inclined / there is desire for a future convention.

I picked up Macho Man-At-Arms at Walmart.  I don't really buy wrestling figures, but Macho Man is the exception.

It's a pretty neat scale/buck so I imagine the new MOTU line will be fun for a lot of people.  I'll probably limit my purchases to He-Man, Skeletor, and Prince Adam.

 

Oh, and Hulk Hogan, in case they ever do a WWEternia version of him.  I have no idea who he would spoof on, though.

Faker John Cena and Stratos Rey Mysterio were both pretty neat looking, especially the Faker one with translucent plastic.  I don't know why I'm such a sucker for that.

 

With Macho Man-At-Arms, I do kind of wish that they had kept going with the Man-At-Arms design instead of veering off into Battle Armour territory.  It's still a neat torso armour piece with the cracking sunglasses, but it does kind of suck that it didn't keep to a single theme.  Oh, and the weapon is really gummy.  Hopefully, it won't be sticky to touch in 5 years.

I may end up buying a regular Man-At-Arms just to complete the look for Macho Man, albeit, it won't have the yellow of the boots - may need to switch those pieces out as well.

 

I do like that the figures are basically modular so that you can adapt them as you will.

It would be great if there were a way to scan these (there are 3D printers; can they scan? Are 3D scanners commercially available to the same degree?) items so they could be reproduced in the event the originals go south.

They do make 3D scanners, but they're more expensive and the scanned images take a lot of clean-up work before printing.

I still don't get the approach of Masters of the WWE Universe... For a lot of them they have brand new accessories that are only reminiscent of MOTU gear (John Cena's harness, Roman Reigns's Fist and armor) or outright originals (Triple H's Non-Reign Of Terror Claws release, Sting's scorpion bitties, Finn Balor's whatever those are), but then you get things like Macho Man and Rey Misterio where they just have existing MOTU characters' accessories.

 

Heck even the upcoming Undertaker just uses Scare-Glow's painted on skeleton body and glaive weapon, but with Tri-Clops' harness on top.


You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

Yeah some of them are definitely more loose interpretations of crossover figures from MOTU than others.

Although, I guess in some ways that works better for collectors.  I mean, you don't need two He-men or two Statoses in your new MOTU display, but if you can make Rey Mysterio another Bird-Man from Stratos' race, then it it fits into a MOTU collection better.  

 

Part of me think that it's more about having MOTU themes incorporated into the WWE figures than straight-up "What if John Cena was He-Man?" renditions.

I have to admit that the Triple H design looks pretty neat as a generic MOTU villain (I have no idea who the wrestler is).

 

Macho Man-At-Arms might just end up being a rando Eternian Palace Guard or something.  And in some ways, that makes me like him more and be less inclined to replace all of his armour and boots with the ones from the real MAA.
