    Very nice deco.

    I find it funny that a character who can't even move his legs forward is known as Bendy Prime since nothing else in Armada can even move a little bit. :D

    Yeah, the chip has been remoulded with a minicon port so it can activate his minicon feature. They did the same thing with Demolishor... and although it seems cheap (yeah, it's cheap)... it's definently more cost affective for them than to do complete remoulds like they did with Blurr, Longrack, Buzzsaw and Runamuck. Especially since Takara doesn't seem to be helping out with Deluxe Prime and Demolishor.

    Key remould = cheaper production cost + more money per figure for hasbro

    Yeah, because Overrun isn't there anymore. I assume he's doing whatever they do on the Council of Sages.

    So can someone please explain the "bendy" Prime to me? I've always wondered where the name came from.

    Overall, I like this mold. It's one of my favorite Armada molds. I've got the Armada and Nemesis Prime and I'll grab the repaint as well.

    And release dates for this wave vary from June to August. With the supposedly August release of Quickmix already out in Hong Kong, I would have no idea exactly when the next deluxe wave will hit the US.

    From what I gather, the fandom nicknamed it "bendy" Prime as a way to distinguish it when it was revealed that it had far better articulation than the larger Armada Prime figure (or most of the rest of the line, for that matter.)
