    Saw this in the new issue of Toyfare Final Fantasy XIII - Play Arts Kai - Odin Figure - Final Fantasy Figures at BigBadToyStore

    And for a second thought to myself, "SWEET, I would buy four of those for Armada Cheetor, Rhinox, Terrorsaur and Airazor"

    ...then I saw the price :(  can't afford 760 bucks for those.

    I do remember a badass thread back in the day of four Armada Horsemen, but can't remember what they were made from. Anyone have the link?

    Also, Lumpy suggested making customs from Barbie horses. At first I thought he was stupid (usually my first reaction) but I started looking at my step-daughters Barbie Horses and thinking "hmm..."

    What do you think would make some good horses for the horsemen?

    And why the hell does that FF toy cost almost 200 bones?? WTF?

    Nice Square enix screwed with another summon that was fine as is , Odin used to ride a horse now he is a friggen horse XD as for the cost I got no idea and i have never considered horses for transformers to ride, I know there was the horse transformer in one of the Japanese Beast wars line, would it work? Its name is Mach Kick

    Lumpy suggested Mach Kick in our conversation, but I don't have one.

    He does, but is too busy tomorrow to dig his out and see if the Armada beasts can ride him. Would seem fitting though!

    Sounded like an interesting idea and I wanted to try. Hope this helps :)  (I'm afraid I only have Cheetor.)

    But Cheetor's missing his tail/sword :(  No idea where it is.

    Whatever he's holding instead looks way cool though Syd!

    I wish Mach Kick looked more "armored" but that does get the job done. Thanks :thumb

    bite me hippy...

    and yeah, i think barbie horses would be cheaper then buying 4 mach kicks, or 4 of those insane horses...

    killer pics! i love them... he actually looks pretty decent on mach kick... hmm...

    yeah, i wish he was more armored too... need to check out those images you framed for me and take a look and see what to do... but i think barbie horses, with armor and a slick paintjob, might be the way to go...

    remember that old ebay auction that someone showed us, that had the 4 horsemens horses? they were so sick...

    i may have saved them on my old PC... i'll have to try and check this weekend...

    A while back, Big Lots was selling these Centaur type KO Transformers. They had a bot, centaur, and horse/rider modes. They might make decent horses for the horsemen. Here's a pic of mine....

    I'd put it in horse mode for you, but the snow here in PA has me trapped at my mom's house right now.

    If someone were to make oversized KOs of Battle Unicorn you might have something.

    yeah dude, i think even if we had pooled our money we wouldn't have been able to afford it...

    those are sick... next time you get home, if you can snap pics that'd be sick...

    oh, thanks for the name... i found an image and attached it...

    that would be badass too... i love that damn unicorn...

    i'm starting to think a different horse for each minion would be pretty kickass... especially if they all transformed and became different kickass robots...

    The original idea, before DW used standard kind of horses, was to use Armada Predacon as the harrowed...

    Still, more recently, ive been thinking ROTF Ravage could make interesting (and cheap) horses, even with some minor mods

    I'd LOVE to see a custom out of Barbie horses. If you go to girls toy aisles you might find more horses? I think there was a show called saddle club and they had horse figures, but I don't know how big they are.

    Do any of those "candidates" have articulations on the neck? I wish Mach Kick could move his head a bit (not that weird extending neck gimmick).

    yeah, i remember when we all came up with that... we just need RPK to hit this thread and then all 4 of us have posted...

    Ravage could definitely work though... i like that...

    You know what might work well? Micronauts Andromeda and recolors. It's the horse that Baron Karza combines with.

    Magno-Powered Micronauts - Andromeda

    It's already somewhat robotic looking, probably even more so than Mach Kick.
