    Anyone think Hasbro's gonna do anything for the 10th anniversary of the line?

    Apologize.

    Assuming the horror stories I've heard are true.

    Doubtful, even though I love it with a mighty loving, and it was truly the line that got me back into collecting TFs.

    Did they do anything for BW? Yes.
    Did they do anything for RID? No.
    Will they do anything for Armada? One will hope.
    Should they cancel Prime for UT toys? Yes.

    I really think Hot Shot being in the Transformers Prime toy line would be as far as they will go.

    I wouldn't expect anything. They have Prime and FoC on their slate. Though I'd love to see some Armada characters (Demolishor specifically, Overload since the Voyager class is debuting in Generations with FoC Soundwave) slipped into Generations amidst G1 stuff, but I'm not expecting it.

    At this point, Classics Armada Demolishor feels about as likely (or less) than Classics BW Rhinox or Blacharachnia.

    The relative lack of popularity of the toys and the cartoon doesn't help matters, I imagine (Beast Wars and RiD are popular amongst the fan base, and how many updates or homages have we seen recently? At least the Beast Era has gotten a little play, RiD virtually none).

    I guess you can consider the Arms Microns an unintended tribute and addition to the minicon legacy that Armada started, but I don't think those were made with Armada in mind at all.

    I doubt they'd do anything, even though if it wasn't for Amada, Transformers may not even still be around today. Aaron Archer has said on a few occasions that Armada saved Transformers.

    Something in the Generations line would be nice. I would like to see a deluxe sized Armada Megatron be made to match the old Supercon Optimus Prime.

    Generations Deluxe Armada Starscream would also be cool.

    That is pure funny right there! Hahahahaha!

    That is suprising to me to say the least. But I could believe it. Where as Beast Wars did quite well from what I understand Beast Machines just really tanked. So Armada saving the line certainly fits the realm of possibilites. But then what affect did RID (Car Robots) have on the viability and staying power of the TF line?

    I would like them to do so. But I don't see a big push about it.

    I know updates of Scavenger and Starscream have been wanted for a long time.

    Tidal Wave too!

    Oh God I wish. I'd love to see a new Demolishor, Hot Shot (since I never was able to get the Universe one), Red Alert, Sideways, Cyclonus, Scattorshot, Tidal Wave, Crosswise, Scourge, Override, Overload, Wing Saber, Scavenger, Ransack, Landmine, Scorponok, etc.

    You know what just do everything

    I for one would love to see an updated Starscream and by proxy Skywarp. They're my favorites but the articulation is only 1 step up from a brick.

    I'd take a Generations Thrust redeco'd as Armada Thrust, and Universe Sideswipe as Wheeljack.

    They should do an update of Armada Starscream, preferably Voyager. He's one of my favorite Starscream designs by far, though I never watched the show.

    I've always loved the Demolishor mold (not the character). I wish they'd do a modern version of it, with or without the mini-con gimmick.
