    Given the recent release of Maketoys Battle Tanker, I've been wondering what people consider to be the best 'armor upgrade' for a Transformer - either official or custom. There are so many great choices dating back to G1, it's hard to know which to pick, including Powermaster Optimus Prime, Victory Saber, Omega Prime, Jetpower Optimus Prime, City Commander, Samurai Prowl, Protector, etc. Which is your favourite?

    God Ginrai/Powermaster Optimus Prime with Apex Armor.

    I really want Takara/Hasbro to do some kind of Generations update of the toy.


    edit: I kind of like Protector, too, though. I missed out before, but if FansProject re-issue the set when Takara comes out with their upcoming United Rodimus Convoy, I may pick them both up.

    Combiner equivalent of putting on a hat and mismatching shoes.



    Anyway, Energon Prime + Wingsaber

    But I'm also partial to Energon Landmine and RiD Omega Prime

    Fansproject City Commander as it made a plain looking Voyager into a great modern interpretation of Ultra Magnus.

    God Ginrai. Prime combines with a Powermaster and two trailers. How can you top that!

    If you wanna get down to it, the Ginrai truck cab transtector is an armor upgrade for the human Ginrai godmaster figure. So that means God Ginrai is an armor upgrade of an armor upgrade of an armor upgrade.

    I have to go for City Commander, if only because it means I have a decent looking Ultra Magnus.

    Ya know, after a bit of thought I've got to go with Power master Optimus Prime/God Ginrai too. Always been partial to it.

    I also REALLY like Armada Superpants Prime, but only with trailer pants and Overload on top. There's something really satisfying about his chunkiness.

    FP City Commander would have scored higher if not for his leg attachment setup. You know, the whole 'oh shit is it gonna break' every time you put them on. FP Protector would also have scored higher if not for his face.

    That's basically just a backpack.

    I vote God Ginrai. Omega Prime second and Energon Prime/Wingsaber 3rd.

    Galaxy Force Optimus Prime with Wing Saber Armor. Its just Overkill.

    But for G1 fans. I've really wanted to get a the macross Heavy armor upgrade for Jetfire.
    Which was planned for transformers. But scrapped do to licensing disputes.

    City Commander is nifty. Jetwing Optimus Prime is pretty boss too. And if you count combiner add-ons, you'd have a hard time beating FansProject's Crossfire Colussus/Bruticus sets.

    I love City Commander. Galaxy Force Optimus Prime is the best hasbro/takara armor release in my books though.
