    And if so would it be a large Transformer scaled suit of Armor or Human scaled?..might be interesting if in a big battle Jack wears it to help the Autobots.

    Miko will probably take it and stalk Bulkhead as he goes into battle.

    Why not? Jack could use the Matrix of Leadership and access Vector Sigma.

    For some odd reason this reminds a lot of the CobyBot from TF-Cybertron/Galaxy Force.

    While cool, I doubt it. The relic piece itself (that they have to strap to themselves to activate the armor) is about half the size of a human, if not bigger. I can't imagine them putting that on their bodies and a small armor coming out of it.

    Sure the key to Vector Sigma kind of mass shifted so Jack could carry it but this seems like a completely different situation

    That apex armor is huge & heavy compared to a tiny & light human.

    The apex does not shrink to human size. the weight of the armor would be too heavy for a human to move back & forth. the apex armor is hollow inside. if a human went inside the apex armor he's fall to the bottom of the shoe inside the armor.

    Starscream appeared to be inside the apex armor controlling it like a suit of armor. by having his arms & legs inside the armor arms & legs moving the suit.

    Unless it can shrink, no way

    And then they will blame it on WJ.

    If the Matrix of Leadership can be shrunk and configured to work for humans, I wouldn't be surprised if this thing could too.

    It was the key to Vector Sigma that was shrunk, and it got me thinking, is the Matrix nothing more then software?

    Yes and no.

    I think It could wrap around almost any size but I think it needs energon to work.

    only human I could see using it is Cylas, who isn't exactly human anymore.

    It's not even that, it's like those Data Cylinders, it's information stored as energy.
    But you're right about it not being a tangible object.

    We see in New Recruit Starscream sticks it on himself via a small spike which allows it to remain attatched when it forms around him. Unless the kids can survive sticking a metal spike through their chest, which is much bigger to them than it was to Starscream, I doubt it.

    Welcome to the boards.

    I don't think that the humans will use the AA.

    Instead, Ratchet might make a scaled down version of the armor to protect the kids if and when they are on assignment.

    He wasn't using the matrix. He was using Vector Sigmas Key, which apparently doubles as a sort of external harddrive for matrix data.


    Rewatch "New Recruit" Before starscrem uses the armor prongs pop out that anchor the armor to the bot.


    Not human friendly.

    Rest assured, if the plot requires Jack to use the Armor, just for once, to save the day, the Armor will shrink for him.

    I went over the Orion Pax episodes saved on my dvr and they refer to the key as the matrix...but then Prime has a matrix looking object in his chest...so I really don't know what to say about that. Maybe someone misread something while making the script.

    Back on topic. I assume it could be possible for a human to use the armor, just not very easily

    I doubt it. Only works for Cybertronians, I would think.
