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)

I'll have to keep an eye on Baroness and Ravage. Those are the only parts of the set that I'm really interested in.


Same here. I like the idea of Bludgeon, and Hound and Jetfire are okay, but the Baroness/Ravage set is the only one I really feel like I should own.

Kinda bummed that Hound doesn't have more decals. All those little warning signs are a pain in the butt to apply, but I like these crossover vehicles more when they feel like equal parts Joe and Transformers.

It's going to be real easy for Cobra Stickers to just offer repro stickers and fans to just make their own using unstickered retail releases, isn't it?

Actually, I thought Cobrastickers already made a set of Jetfire stickers for the Skystriker. I know they've done Macross, and some other stuff.

Yep.

Yeah, I just want the figures myself... and even then, it's mainly Bludgeon, and Snake-Eyes if I can get him really cheap, and Baroness I'd want for the head more than anything else... Paris Pursuit Baroness is my go-to Baroness but it'd be nice to have this old-school head design to swap onto.



Meanwhile, I got this Resolute CC to try and replicate Raginspoon's Iron Klaw, but when I had him in hand, the Nazi flair of his outfit made me want to test someone else out first.
Thoughts?

Man, all I want is that Baroness headsculpt. Not even Ravage. The rest of Baroness I can try and get here if it saves me anything. But that sculpt is preeeetty. (Does it look big for the body in that actoys thread, though, or is it just the angle?)

Hope someone casts this head right quick. And if that someone is TofuJesse, that he gets his scheduling and shipping in order.

Well, the Baroness body is the same one used on both the final 25th Anniversary Cobra 5-pack as well as the Resolute multi-pack Baroness releases, so it should be easy enough to score one or the other.

The head is pretty stellar too.

But me, I still want Bludgeon the most.

Everything there is pretty dense though, and it's all packed in such a way as to support and cushion itself a bit. And I guess the harsh reality is it's meant to be an at-show exclusive primarily so having it stand up to normal shelf-wear or shipping was likely not as high on the list as cramming it in as small a box as possible.

Same.

Really the only flaws I heard were how the turret just dangles up high in base mode, and how the "command center"'s chairs are just randomly scattered about rather than organized around the monitors.

But it was damned awesome for $40 though! icon-waspy.gif

Personally, I find the RHINO the more compelling vehicle(s) between it and the ROCC. Plus it has the Aliens APC thing going on and one of the niftiest "mini-vehicles" of the era.
