Christmas Maximus?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 March 2020 - 01:13 PM)

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

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:27 AM)

(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)

Dare! Dare to believe you can survive 2020!

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.

Studio Series 100 Titan Class Driller.

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.

It's a sad world where we can't discuss our health and safety without it descending into political arguments...

@  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.

So I guess everyone else was about as enthusiastic over this episode as I was, seeing that no one even talked about it? icon-fire.gif

Clearly a "save our money" episode that didn't really do anything to advance the overall story. All it did was give Green Arrow a reason to be hanging around for the finale eps (though without more than just a token nod to him not having been around lately), and resolve that the version of Zod in the Phantom Zone merged with the original so that he is in fact the "real one."

Overall...just pretty much blah on this one, except for the hinting at Hawkman which didn't pay off. I really thought that statue at the end was going to open its eyes.

ALERT: Everything is fine.

Only things of worth to mention this ep, for me, were the mention of Orion and the Legion of Doom shot in the Trailer for next week. This last half a season seems to have been very poorly plotted/paced out considering they KNEW it was gonna be the final season going in...


-ZacWilliam, boy that series finalie is gonna have a lot to cover to not be a huge flop, but then it's Smalville so a passsable percentage is probably our best hope...

For me I was confused to as How clone Zod was in the Phantom Zone but I guess the other clone Kryptonians had ways to send him there. But by and by this episode was one to snooze through. Nothing really comes of Ollie's Omega Mark other than what he decides to go search for next episode. It was a nice way to tie off Zod for the end of Smallville. But all in in all still no big progression in the Darkseid department. We see evidence that his reach is far spread even in the Zone but that is about it. In the Clark and Lois things we see how much faith Lois has in him to come back to her now. While it does bring up some previous issues this episode really fails in how anythings really moving to a resolution.


Why do I expect the finale to leave us with a Cliffhanger icon-waspy.gif

You mean like the fact WB used more than a few left over props from 300 very openly in a few shots?
Codename: Ginrai
Code No.: C-307
Level: 76
Origin: U.S.A.

Profile: A gentle intellectual, he is usually a quiet commander, but when the Destrons start attacking, he becomes a warrior whose bravery is second to none. Well versed in various martial arts, he is willing to lay down his life to defend against destruction and invasion.

Trust me....it's better to have a well defined collection over a vast one.

That, and also the Phantom Zone has always been shown as a desolate desert. This time it all took place indoors on an existing set. We know this show is more expensive than the network is really comfortable with, so I'm willing to give a little slack from time to time. But I do agree that they have a LOT of expectations on the finale, they've teased it so well from earlier this year, and they really need to knock it out of the park. Unfortunatey, "satisfactory resolution" isn't a strong suit of the producers.

Besides just saving money, it was a chance to bring in another former regular star "one last time," something that after 10 years, I can hardly blame them for doing. (Unless they try and do that with Lana - then hug 'em. They can mention her if they must, but shouldn't bring her back.)

I just hope next week wraps up the wedding stuff, rather than leaving that thread open for the finale too. Then I hope they do a DS9/BSG type finale where most of the major action is wrapped up in the first hour or at least by the first half of the second hour. They really need to give at least half an episode to resolution. If they give it just the last act, and the only time we see him in the suit is the very final shot, that's going to be kind of disappointing (though I'm kind of mentally preparing myself for it).

Hate to say it but a part of the finale is the wedding. Not sure when it happens but it's confirmed as part of the finale. Next week supposedly has fortress Jor-el give the lovebirds an interesting gift, as well as a cameo by Kara.

Gah. Why don't they also throw in a courtroom trial. Perhaps the birth of a baby? Or a shot of an empty Kent farm (though I'm starting to expect this).

I hate Ikea brand, flat-packed, ready-build drama.
