    I don't think we've seen in package pics yet, so hopefully that's newsworthy.

    Unicron

    Also new- the cross-sell shows what looks like an Armada Demolisher repaint!

    So hopefully I don't have to wait until August for a new Deluxe!

    Demolishor? Nice mold, but this is the fourth in as many years. Jetstorm, anyone?

    Is that annother repaint of Armada Demolishor on the back???


    I know a Deluxe Demolishor was announced, but i was under the impression it would at least be a repaint of a Cybertron mold.

    Unicron looks great, but I can't seem to get a good enough look at his bio in photoshop to translate.

    As for bendy Prime and Armada Demolishor... wtf? I mean, I do like both of those molds but why no Cyber Key remoulding? Is this to try and make the minicon twopacks more important? Give me a break please... it's not that I don't like those figures, but why should I buy them for the... fourth time (yeah, this will be the fourth repaint of both of those figures) if they aren't remoulded to take advantage of the lines actual gimmick? I might still pick them up, but Demolishor to boost my Decepticons and it's nice for him to show up in the Trilogy's final run. Bendy Prime... meh... if I pick him up it'll be because I love the Deluxe Armada Prime mould... but all this wasted potential still makes me sad... :redface2:

    Already got the Armada Demolisher and Deluxe Prime, don't really love them. They're alright, but not at all interested in their repaints. It's a shame we can't make out Unicron's bio.

    I'm happy at getting another bendy prime (still need nemesis, though), and I'll bet the demolisher pic is actually just a goof like they had on the website for I think one of the alts or something like that (old name ->old pic instead of a new one). Especially since that doesn't even look any different from the armada demolisher.

    Woo, excited about that unicron, though. This gives us what, another month for him?

    I'm REALLY miffed that they packaged Unicron as a Decepticon, just like they packaged Primus as an Autobot and the Minicons as being on one side or the other. What, there can't be any neutrals or just unaligned bots anymore!?!

    They're clogging the shelves? I'd have never guessed, seeing as how I've only seen the occasional Runamuck or Longrack every now and then. I've never seen Buzzsaw or Blurr.

    It really depends on where you live and how distrisbution is, but around here in Tampa Fl... yeah... the Armada guys clogged the shelves for quite awhile. And still do at my Target when we get the occasional restock of that wave (makes me wonder what the heck the DC is doing). I seriously doubt that Bendy Prime will warm the shelves as he's such a nice figure, but Armada Demolishor... eh... I could take a repaint of E Demolishor, but Armada Demolishor? How the heck are they going to explain him getting his old body back.

    So Unicron has a Planet X key? Damn. Wished it was a new type of key, since he's UNICRON and all. And he's not a Decepticon. He's the Dark God of CHAOS! Geez, Hasbro...

    They just can't seem to let it go. Hell, keep reusing Armada Hasbro. Wear those molds out like the RiD Car Bros. :p 

    Although, I'm boggled at the choice of the Armada Demolisher mold over the Energon one. The Energon figure is just so much nicer, has never been used since, and I'd gladly buy it again.

    Bendy Prime did get some repaint!!!(which I didn't like it.) Demolisher (returned to good old Armada color.

    I just hope they do get a force chip treatment.

    P.S.
    Bendy Prime may get a force chip in his butt/backpack.
    Demolisher get a arm force chip treatment.

    Unicorn is my main target

    But now Unicron is just another wimp and that's why he's a Decepticon. That said, I really want it.

    But the Armada remolds... yuck.
