Oh yeah, that was Fort Max. My bad.

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 March 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Studio Series 100 Titan Class Driller.

@  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.

In a desperate attempt to get you guys to talk about anything the hug else...

 

http://www.slashfilm...fantastic-four/

 

 

Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four reboot has got to be the most mysterious of all the big 2015 releases. Even with a film as secret as Star Wars Episode VII we hear rumblings. Trank’s film, however, which is likely a major part of Fox’s Marvel plans, has a release date and little announced beyond that. Rumors have flown about actors such as Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Allison Williams being up for Mr. Fantastic, Johnny and Sue Storm respectively, but none are confirmed. Now the biggest member of the team can join the rumor mill, too.

Movies.com reports Josh Gad is the number-one choice for the role of Ben Grimm, aka The Thing.

According to Movies.com, this rumor “comes from within casting circles close to the film.” Nothing is official, but they point out that Gad is age-appropriate in relation to the other actors who have been mentioned for the rest of the team.

 

Here’s what we do know about Josh Trank’s film. It’s scheduled for release June 19, 2015 and has Simon Kinberg and Matthew Vaughn on board as producers. The former also did a pass on Jeremy Slater’s script, as did a few others. Actors are testing in the near future with filming to take place in Louisiana. Kinberg also plans to tie it in with Fox’s X-Men universe in some way, but that’s unconfirmed.

Coming off the huge success of Frozen, Gad will next appear in Wish I Was Here, will be playing Sam Kinison and is writing a Gilligan’s Island movie among other things. With a schedule that busy, who knows if the actor could even fit a film this huge into his schedule. I’d imagine not. That doesn’t mean he wasn’t asked or mentioned though. He’s probably a first choice that can’t make it work. We’ll have to wait and see.

With a June 2015 release date planned, production on the film will be starting very soon, which means official casting announcements could happen any day now. I think Gad is a fantastic choice to play Grimm, if it works out. What do you think?

I follow the writer on Twitter...

 

No idea if it's true or not, but I kinda like the Josh Gad casting rumor!

— Slater (@jerslater) January 28, 2014

 

Anyway. Ben's my favorite character I've ever written. Gad is awesome and would kill it. Hope it's true.

— Slater (@jerslater) January 28, 2014

And *any* actor you cast is going to have his voice digitally lowered and modulated to match the character. So why not go for pure talent?

— Slater (@jerslater) January 28, 2014

My argument has always been that Ben is the closest thing Marvel has to a Pixar character. You need an expressive, lovable voice.

Fox is using bots to scour the Web for info leaks. We got hit for that and the synopsis for the opening of DoFP as well.

'Fantastic Four' Casting: Actors Tested, Lady-Doom Being Considered

 

 

It's also being reported that Dr. Doom will be the main villain, and that, perhaps in the hope of finding someone who truly understands the particulars of their body, the studio is considering switching to a female Doctor. No specific actresses are yet being named, but apparently they want a "big name" for their antagonist and "isn't ruling out switching genders for the role." Fox truly is the colorblind pansexual of superhero rebooters.

 

 

There's some other casting talk at the linked article.

 

But yeah, Lady Doom.

So I imagine the armour will now have a boob-window, and those stupid things that seem to happen when female characters get their own version of a male armour that for them is fully covered?

 

Name's dead easy. Victoria. Or just go with Valeria, as I doubt she'll ever be appearing anyway.

Cease and desist could also be "this fake script is giving the movie a bad name, quit talking about it, it ain't real"

 

No way of knowing until more info about the movie comes out, of course.

 

Also, I forget if it was mentioned here, but Trank denied the female Doom rumor.

The content of that C&D was absurd anyway.. they were claiming copyright over 'purported plot summary'. The original plot summary originated on a casting call page submitted by Fox -- which, that said it probably is fake or intentionally misleading.

 

But who am I to oppose the angry Fox Anti Piracy Robots!?
