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.

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

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

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

@  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.

@  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)

Regarding the new Takara Tomy items we just heard about yesterday, I have received a solicitation that list more details about them plus the tentative release months.

Wow, assuming this is true I'm very surprised. Figured it was more likely Seibertron was full of it.

I hope these have new head sculpts at least. I'd kill for a good deluxe scale Goldbug head. That would get bought just to go on the Classics body.


ZacWilliam, trying to imagine enough alternate versions of Banzitron existing to make up an Alternity gestalt... If true this should be some VERY INTERESTING fiction.

Black Sideswipe kinda interests me, if only because I hope for a G2 or Deep Cover color scheme from it! Any ideas what the Starscream is that doesn't have a line name in front of the name?

Starscream is still an unknown. But at his price, he should be something like a Legends class figure.

Hmm, surprising character choices for Takara. Can't say I'm super interested in those molds, but depending on how they turn out I may be interested.

Thank you Meister79 for confirming this, I love you!

Man I CAN'T WAIT FOR THAT GOLDBUG!!! HUG YEAH!!! I remember hoping back in late 2009 that they'd retool that Suzuki Swift mold into Goldbug but I never thought in a million years they would do it. So awesome.

I gotta say I have to give TakaraTomy credit for these Alternity, it's not like any of these are real obvious choices (barring Galvatron). And even with Galvatron, if he has a new head sculpt it will totally make it worth it (and not cheap). I hope Galvatron's swords are orange.

This also means I know what a redeco of Armada Tidalwave as the 3 Seekers through their connection to Banzai-Tron to Energon Mirage to Armada Tidalwave. icon-fire.gif

Who would have thought this line would have given us a new Goldbug, Dia Atlas, and Banzai-Tron homage. Banzai-Tron has been getting a lot of love lately between BotCon, Hasbro, and now TakaraTomy. icon-hotrod.gif

Err... Thanks? icon-hotrod.gif
I'm also pretty stoked about the 4 Alternity character choices.
Takara homaging Banzaitron and Dai Atlas is brilliant. Hope this is the beginning of a trend for them to start homaging some more obscure characters.

Banzaitron - an amalgamation of BOTH his multiverse counterparts!

Dai Atlas - the one and only!

Goldbug - confused if GI Joe killed him, or if was his fellow Autobots!

Galvatron - he's, um, isn't Megatron already on par with the Alternity? And since Galvatron is Megatron... Is Galvatron a corrupted Megatron avatar? Or is he the amalgamation of all the Galvatrons who aren't Megatron?

I wouldn't be surprised if Galvatron is either the cartoon Galvatron or Galvatron II, or perhaps some corrupted version of the Alternity Megatron they destroyed brought back some how by the power of who knows what.

Goldbug is either the G1 cartoon Goldbug or perhaps just a Bumblebee that advanced into Goldbug (whether it comics or cartoon).

I'm sure the other two are likely just their normal G1 selves.

Okay, some of those are pretty inspired. More of this, and less of the dull, effortless black repaints.

Banzai-Tron from that toy sounds promising, that really works for me. Should be pretty.

Perhaps anything with SKU's are release months and those without are solicit months?

Huh. I'm pretty sure I'll want Goldbug; that's the version of Bumblebee I have the most nostalgia for, and the non-humanoid head seems like a better fit for that somewhat odd mold. I can easily pass on the rest.
