Not to be confused with Leader I

@  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...

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.

It's like Hasbro's trolling the fans! "Check out the crappy Duke we made some of you buy while we had this gem hidden!"

And on a down note, it looks like both the black ninja and the Cyber-Ninja lost their alternate heads. Massive bummer, IMO. Especially the Cyber-Ninja losing the Wraith head.

You giddy goat, you. icon-blitz.gif

Still, these pictures are nice. The lighting and spacing on the displays is better than it was at Joecon so you can see some things better (like the complete lack of alternate heads on the black ninja and Cyber-Ninja!).

And man, the women of Retaliation really know how to accessorize better than the men. icon-fire.gif
Have you seen the kickass weapons loadout Lady Jaye has?

Oh, and they mistakenly switched Firefly and Beachhead on the 3-pack displays! icon-fire.gif

Yeah - fortunately I saved my receipt and will be returning crappy Duke and a Cobra Trooper tomorrow. No ankles is one thing, but warped ankles plus no stand makes it worse still. I could only get my other Trooper to stand like he'd just been punched in the stomach.

Anyway - the Night Landing is pretty darn awesome, the the Eel doesn't look right without some red on him though - he just looks like Torpedo.

I can't help but feel like they should've used the unrelease "Arctic Diver Ripcord" body that never came out during POC for the Eel.

Also, the Ninja Combat Cruiser and the Tread Ripper have been found out there.

These are the two vehicles (aside from the Cobra Night Landing) I'm most intrigued about.

I've used that Duke for a Lazy Custom.

Head: Resolute Arctic Duke w/Renegades Ripcord's goggles.
Body arms: Retaliation Duke w/PoC Steel Brigade Bandoleer
Legs: Resolute Stalker's, since the green matches up
Weapon: I gave him the gun that's from Battlefield 2142 (comes with Paris Pursuit Baroness and PoC City Strike Beach Head)

He's my Lazy Mirage, might give him more tech looking legs when I find a spare pair.

Just for kicks, I decided to try how Retaliation Kamakura would look with the more traditional ninja sash and chest strap.
I like it a lot!

Does anyone here have both the Snake-Eyes motorcycle set and Firefly motorcycle set from the Retaliation line?

If so, could you get me a photo of what the two figures look like with their heads swapped?

I was thinking of doing an LBC Kamakura by putting Firefly's head on SE's body, and was debating what I could do in reverse.

Thanks.

So you want to pay MORE.
To get a Kamakura with a whopping SEVEN POINTS OF ARTICULATION.
Pre-posed to ride a motorcycle and do very little else.

Yep and that's fine in my opinion. Twenty-five for a vehicle plus regular, articulated driver is fine. Twenty for a vehicle and gimped lump of plastic is not. And more importantly eight dollars for a single-carded, gimped lump of plastic is insulting.
