    Dunno if anybody else has run into Armada Optimus at retail yet, but I just found him in Kennet Square Pensylvania.

    I also picked up an Alt Mirage in Wilmington De. Funny thing is, I've got an Alt Mirage en-route from BBTS as we speak, but I just couldn't wait for the delivery date. :p  I guess I'll paint one to give it a BT look, and keep the other MISB. Or send one back. I dunno.

    Just opened Prime and....Awesome! The reversed arm problem was fixed after all. :) 

    Here's his arms right after I took him out of the package (you can still see the packaging bands on him).

    So worry not, the problem that Magnus and Nemesis had is gone. No modding needed.

    That is one mold I never get tired of, and I can't wait to get my hands on him.


    But it's interesting what you said about the NP problem... I just looked at mine and his arms are fine. I thought it was only the Magnus that had the reveresed arm problem?

    I dunno... I never got my hands on Nemesis, but I thought I heard some people had reversed Nemesis. Anyway, the test shot pics for Cybertron Bendimus had the arms reversed, so I was worried.

    And yeah, it is a great mold. I think these are the best colors for it yet. Shame he didn't come out durring the Cybertron Armada new head/new key mold wave. Not that I don't like his head as-is...But this mold is much more deserving of the royal treatment than any of those 4.

    OMG!!!!

    You have NO idea how happy this makes me! I've wanted a Bendy Prime for a lone time... and I really LOVE the red and black color scheme... but the forearm issue really scared me, cause I wanted them to be proper, but when it comes to removing pins in my TFs, I'm pretty hesitant (I tried with my C. Ransack, and I couldn't even get those out). I was seriously about to start browsing eBay and the Junkion forums for an old Armada Bendy Prime... but to see this one has the arms proper!

    I think I'm about to go hunting again.

    I just grabbed a Unicron yesterday too. Sweet little god of chaos. Passed on Prime though, he does look good but I just can't justify another version of that mold. I think I've got 3 already.

    The fix is fairly easy. I wrote down the instructions and my grandpa did it. The pins pop out fairly easily...

    Damned Hasbro. Why must they keep releasing Armada retools/repaints? I am compelled to buy anything and everything Armada, and this is another one to get.

    The more I look at this Prime, the more I love the colors. In fact, I wouldn't mind this becoming Prime's primary color scheme for a few years just to shake things up. 'Bot mode really looks fantastic.
