Christmas Maximus?

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

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

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

@  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)

Yeah, the showrunners said outright a while back that this is all set before the Agent Carter One-Shot, so we already know to some extent where the pieces are going to fall at the end of this miniseries.

But yeah, I enjoyed these first two episodes. Atwell continues to be very good, and the dynamic between Peggy and Jarvis is fun.

While I know it's "period appropriate", I'm hoping the "everyone but that one guy treats her like a secretary thing" ends FAST. This is a founder of SHIELD who kicks major ass, she shouldn't have to prove herself constantly.

Seriously. Given the time period I'd be more concerned if it wasn't a major plot point.

I really enjoyed those 2 EPs, but carter does seem to leave a trail of destruction behind her. Is she going to be operating in the shadows the whole season? Not what I expected, she seemed in charge during the recent agents of shield cameo. I like that a human Jarvis is in this but was hoping for more stark

...recruited, yes, but rehabilitated? Dude restarted Hydra within SHIELD; that's not rehabilitation, that's infiltration, subversion, and dare I say perversion.

 

As for the chances of him appearing, I find that doubtful, at least for this season.

He played the guy Carter knocked out and tied to a chair, who the other two agents later found and picked up.

Which honestly leaves a very sour taste in my mouth. For all of her skills, intelligence, etc she ultimately is the one responsible for failing to stop Hydra from infiltrating SHIELD. It happened on her watch and under her nose.

 

That's a real black mark on her record and somewhat unbelievable given who she is and what she's capable of.

 

It's a disservice to her character but we already know that's what happens. :/

Well, it could have been over her objections, rather than under her nose.  But Hydra was careful and slow enough that she wouldn't have had any proof (or even suspicious coincidences) prior to retirement.  When your long game is measured on a scale of nearly a century, you can be subtle.

HYDRA played the long game after Red Skull got sent off to the green room that's for sure.  They made sure that SHIELD got their hands on a lot of big tech and big name HYDRA guys who could be recruited to their side.  Zola's addition to SHIELD probably happened after Carter stepped down as Director of SHIELD anyways.

 

Ironbite-or really any big name HYDRA guys who were active in the war.

I really enjoyed the first two episodes.  It's also nice to see the writers giving Agent Carter the ability to be a spy/change her identity, which takes advantage of the actress' range of skills as well.

 

The time period cultural dedication bits are interesting as well, and even make the fellas from Mad Men look positively gallant at times by comparison.

A bit unreasonable. If an employee steals from me does that make me responsible because they did so behind my back or out of my sight? As an organization grows beyond the scope of just one individual it becomes more and more difficult to control every aspect that happens within it. Saying she is responsible is like saying Obama is responsible for his secret service men partying with prostitutes. A leader of an organization isn't omniscient or omnipresent. While it is possible to be negligent, it is also possible to be doing your job and then some and still have something bad happen. Terrorism and terror organizations survive because it is impossible for those they wish to do harm to know everything.

I think CA2 did a pretty good job(In a fictional way) of demonstrating that even someone such as Nick Fury couldn't know everything, hence his trust issues, given that he himself promoted the guy who was running a large part of Hydra's operations.

I liked it. The period setting gives it a nice visual style, and the short season means they're getting right into it, rather than the interminable drips and drabs of information from Agents of SHIELD.

 

Plus, I liked how 5 minutes never went by where I wasn't recognizing someone. "Hey, there's Bubsy from The Wire. There's that guy from The Intruders. There's Rusty Venture!"

Yes, but to anyone but those who knew he was still working for Hydra, he would have appeared to be rehabilitated and working for the US now... as it actually happened with many german scientists and even some spies after WWII.

Given how old Zola (and Toby Jones) is, doutbful, seeing as she is still alive at the present time and Zola has been dead for quite a while. I do not think she would have retired at a young age from SHIELD.
But anyway - Zola was never a true believer in the Red Skull's cause and went with it partially out of fear. The whole interrogation scene with Fury showed that he did not have any particular love for the Skull.

Last I checked, most of them genuinely came over and played nice. Von Braun certainly didn't cause any problems.

 

I know, pedantics, but still, I'm questioning the word choice. If you'd included a 'seemingly' in there, I wouldn't be raising this much of a fuss.
