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 - 11:11 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)

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 March 2020 - 02:51 AM)

I guess I want to see how the characters end up, but Louise has always grated on me really bad, and the fanservice just went totally overboard last time to the point where it became hard to watch because why plot when crappy abuse and fanservice will sufice?

Guilty Crown is...interesting. It's got sci-fi super-high production values and some wonderful animation, but the setting is a bit simplistic and it suffers from "everybody is better than the main character who is a bit of a joke" syndrome.

Generally people want it to improve.


Honestly, if it was just about the rebellion fighting the evil empire, I think it'd be a much better show.

The main character just kills it.

Though it is very nice looking.

I don't have a problem with the main character at the moment. As long as he grows pass the wuss phase soon...assuming there are more episodes. Today's new episode really felt like a finale. Maybe it's just a season finale, but I can't help but wonder if it's over.

If it's over, I'll probably pick up one of these new shows.

I've been trying to give some of the new shows a chance over the last couple days.

So far the Symphogear one is fairly interesting, Mouretsu Pirates seems like it's going to be fun, Papa no Iukoto looks more entertaining than the manga, and I've only half watched Rinne no Lagrange.

Something about Rinne no Lagrange is driving me batty though. Madoka's in a jersey club, where she helps out other clubs.... and I've seen this idea in some other anime or manga over the years, but can't remember it or find it online. I remember had several members, and may have been called something like the do anything club. They wore tracksuits as well, and it seems like at some point some alumni members came to help the current members out of a jam. This is going to drive me nuts until I remember it. Anyone got any ideas?

Yes indeed, two OVAs which I'm very happy there's finally news about Akito the Exiled, there was nothing about it for so long.

And Nunnally in Wonderland which will probably be very silly and funny.

And a photo story that will run in run in both Hobby Japan and Newtype Ace, the Hobby Japan project will be a photo story about a terrorist youth who wants revenge against the death of his lover and the Newtype Ace project is a manga about a member of the anti-terror knight force that has to hunt him down, the KMFs in both stories will be released under the Robot Damashii line. And it's name is "Soubou no Oz" or "Oz The Reflection".

And a stage play and a musical.

No, I checked and I definitely haven't read that one. Same concept though. Seems like while the protragonist guy was a member of the helping club, but the story wasn't about the club itself. I seem to remember a scene where someone like the student council president sees the protagonist in his jersey with a girl he likes and is jealous... Likely setting off the scene that ended up with the alumni helping out... This is going to continue bothering me.

The latest ep of Pirates was pretty good. They have 26 episodes to work with so easing us into the world is best. Also loved the little bit of Pirate philosophy from Marika's mother.

Some of the recent anime show titles are just simply... hilariously misleading. Giant Killing, is for example, not an anime version of Jack and the Beanstalk, but a show about football (soccer, well, soccer IS football). Black Lagoon has nothing to do with the nominal creature that you'd expect, but is about pirates... But my biggest surprise was when I checked out the show called "You're Being Summoned Azazel-san!" -they have done the unthinkable, turning the classic arch-demons of hell into pokemon-like chibi creatures that help a detective/summoner solve petty cases. icon-fire.gif

Seems pretty straightforward to me - even as someone who doesn't care about football, I'm familiar with the term "giant killer" for a "worse" team that beats the big teams.

Two eps into Rinne no Lagrange and I like it so far. I've always been fond of the sort of wish-fulfillment "normal kid thrown into giant robot war is actually special and the only one that can pilot this robot and also they're super awesome at it right from the start" plot, and it helps when I like said normal kid character. The op and ed songs are nice, but nothing catchy.

Kill Me Baby, on the other hand, has a moderately catchy opening and a super catchy ending. The show itself is pretty funny too, and I adore Yasuna's actress. She sounds really familiar, but I don't think I've watched anything else she's been in. I wish I could find the name of the lady doing the time/scene change voiceovers, because she also sounds super familiar.

I've also watched the first two eps of Ano Natsu de Matteru. I like it well enough to watch some more, but it really just feels like Onegai Teacher with slightly changed character settings (no surprise then that it's written and designed by the same dudes that made Onegai Teacher/Twins. Ran out of ideas, I guess).
