Christmas Maximus?

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

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

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.

@  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.

I think you might've meant to quote Nanite.

Me, I've got no real basis for comparison, cause this relaunch is my first time buying ML figures at retail. My entire collection prior to this was acquired between 2010 and 2011, primarily over eBay and other such venues (except for the occasional TRU 2-pack).

Looks like the Legends are hitting en mass. I saw all of Wave 2 at Toys R Us, and Wave 1 leftovers at Target.

Still looking for an Electro Shield Steve Rogers!

I really want Arnim Zola, but I'm not very interested in the Wave 2 figures themselves. They looked nice, I just have no familiarity with any of these characters or costumes.

Just a note for anybody who picks up the Stark Tek Assault Armors-- the weapon peg-holes on the mechs are compatible with the DotM Mech-Tech weapon pegs, just in case the weapons it comes with weren't enough for you.

Just saw the entire Arnim Zola Variant wave at Toys R Us. Can't afford them right now.

I also didn't realize there are two versions of Zola's main body, one with Zola's face, and one with Red Skull's. That makes me cranky, because I may never see the non-variant case.

So, after giving up, I finally found the DD/Bullseye pack. BE is nice, but I am not digging the aesthetics on the neck/head articulation. It looks almost as bad as TB Marvel Legends did back in the day. Yuck!

What makes me sad is Daredevil. I REALLY want a good DD. There are no more left in town, and this one has a hip joint problem. The left leg pops out whenever I move it. Is there a fix for this, or am I going to just have to return it and hope for a single carded version down the road?

I don't think I've ever had that issue with mine, but I'll admit that I don't put my guys into dynamic poses very often.

The local Target had this set the last time I was there. Do you want me to swing by and grab it for you?

Hmm. I will try that. I think it is more to do with a slight deformation in the plastic, but I really want to keep this guy, so I will give it a shot.

Anyone collecting the new Marvel Legends? I'm in the market for a complete Electro-Shield Steve Rogers, and Terrax' arms from Ghost Rider.

I've only seen remnants of the Wave 1's variant case (no Steve's left, alas).

Bought the Avengers Iron Man Mech-Armour thing. The figure it comes with is crap, tho he at least has single hinged knees. No matter since I have a plethora of other Iron Man figures that can switch out.

The Mech-Armour itself is pretty spiffy. It's not wildly articulated (could have used knee joints) or loaded with features (no lights, sounds, or even light-piped eyes) that might justify its $20 price point, but the War Machine-esque shoulder mounted chain gun and missile box launcher are pretty nice as is potential use as a proper Hulk-Buster armour due to it's size. I do wish it had come with two wrist-mounted weapons rather than just the one.

Not sure how I feel about the Captain America version, but I guess I could buy it eventually to use with the Iron Patriot armour or Captain America armour. Seems silly to have Captain America in it.

A War Machine deco'ed one, on the other hand, would be an immediate purchase.

EDIT: Oh, and the translucent blue shielded interface for Iron Man's hands was a nice touch of attention to detail since all that armour doesn't do you a lick of good if your arms are exposed and can be accidentally snapped off during an intense battle.

All Marvel figures are BOGO 50% right now at TRU. I saw the second wave of ML. They look nice, but other than Bucky Cap, I feel no need to have any of this set. I couldn't even get Cap because the paint had a big chunk knocked out of the stomach. :/

I went hunting this weekend and STILL no ML wave 2 in my area. *sigh*

However as luck would have it I did frind a lone normal version Black Widow/Winter Soldier two pack at my TRU that wasn't there before. They've only had the variant version since last year and the only thing I can figure is that the normal one was a return. Now I just need to find me that Hulk from the two pack as well as a Deadpool (yeah right) and I can be happy.
