@  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.

@  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)

I just taped up a shower curtain and took my first shower in three weeks. It was heavenly.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (26 March 2020 - 11:48 AM)

I would buy that...

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 March 2020 - 02:03 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.

@  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.

That's the first video I've actually watched.  Good stuff.  Need to go back and catch up on the others.

Thanks.

Surprised no one has mentioned the stuff from Toy Fair yet.  ASM got some nice photos of a bunch of stuff from it.

So... what's with the concept product Skeletor? Are they soliciting feedback for an oversized version of the original figure, or something else?

 

T2'd Faker head with NA Skeletor is a neat idea. Seems like it'd work better with a variant NA Sword of He, though.

 

Rio Blast looks cool as ever.

 

All that said, though, the Toy Fair showing really does make it look like the line is winding down.

The Pop sub has been a incredibly well received on He-Man.org. I've said over there that I think Light Hope is the most aesthetically pleasing figure in the entire line.

 

Fortunately for me, the Catra, Adora, and She-Ra I got my wife for Christmas (plus the Club Etheria sub) has hooked my wife, who now wants the sub herself. :D

While I'm not normally one for POP Barbies, I've got to say that the POP sub's line-up thus far is pretty damn decent.

You've got Man-E-Faces girlfriend, Madame Razz (essential POP character), some chick with crazy hair, and then that glorious Light Hope figure.  I mean, he's not even represented as a man in the show, and the 4H pulled that beautiful hunk of plastic from their imagination.  

 

It's just a shame that the same level of creativity and awesomeness didn't go into the Unnamed One.

 

Suffice it to say that Light Hope has pretty much sealed the deal on my POP sub, something I never thought I'd do.

I think that the (leaked) Unnamed One looks completely awesome, and is basically all I could have hoped for from the character. I'm super duper looking forward to him arriving next month.

 

LBD - yes, they're looking into making scaled-up repros of the original figures. Doesn't do anything for me personally, but more power to the folks who want 'em.

I loathe this line for its lack of gimmicks, which define MOTU for me more than the characters themselves.

That said, Rio Blast is one of my favorite toys ever, and they've sculpted this update beautifully. I'm almost tempted despite his maddening lack of proper gun gimmicks.

Yeah Light Hope and Entrapta look fantastic.  Even Double Trouble is impressive.

 

I got my Modulok & Glimmer today (about 10 days earlier than normal).  Both are nice figures, Glimmer is mostly standard PoP stuff, and Modulok is pretty great with mimicking the original figure.  Though I wish he had Filmation colors / outfit.

Matty's shipping infuriates me because it takes well over a week to get here.  For whatever odd reason, it always goes California -> Nevada -> Indiana -> Texas.

 

Glimmer's POP essential so there's that, but I'm definitely looking forward to messing around with Modulok.

Entrapta is nice because she is the only villain character from the original line other then Cattra.  

 

The subscription is really knocking out a chunk of PoP stuff.  Angella is the only really major character left I think.

Yep.  That's pretty much it for major characters, unless Matty ever decides to poop us a Filmation Hordak.

 

Minor character wise, there are still those two POP characters Mermista (which might actually turn out cool) and Peekablu (which I liken to Flutterina).

He has a chest flap that can fold down and then you peg a gun onto it.

There is no hole in his chest to allow the flap to fold away with the gun on, but you can choose to display him either with no chest gun or with chest gun as he sits on your shelf.

For completion's sake, I would include Spinnerella as well, since she is Netossa's buddy.  A little surprised she still has not been made with Netossa out there.

I don't know, but you're better off not bothering.  It wasn't good and introduced a bunch of newly designed characters to the fold.  None of which were interesting look but are probably meant to pad out the line as it comes to an end.
