Dug out my Armada collection tonight for shits and giggles and I can't help but think that this was a great toyline. Most of the figures are just plain fun to fiddle with, minicons are neat and the play value is awesome. Sure Cybertron has the force chips as its version of minicon but it just seems pale in comparison to Armada. The design asthetics are original and cool looking (i.e. Jetfire, Scavenger, Tidal Wave, Megatron...). I know a lot of folks feel that the gimmickery took away from the line, i.e. lack of pose-ability, but the gimmmicks are just fun,fun,fun, who can't resist Scavenger's Stompy Stomp , Hot Shot's Axel -Zooka, Hoists uber reaching shovel arm? I have at least one of every mold in Armada, but lost interest in the energon line and have only 4 Cybertron figures. The latter two just seem boring to me... Now I'm just collecting Alternators, and I'll admit that even though each Alt is a work of art , they aren't as fun as armada. Anybody else feel the same way?
