    Here's some new images of the Armada Prime repaint for the Cybertron line. If you'll notice, his elbows are bent. maybe he won't have the same assembly error as the Universe Ultra Magnus afterall.


    Thanks to Autobase Aichi for the News.

    the left and right forearms were swapped, thus not allowing you to bend the arms normally...

    On the other hand, I have crystal Convoy and don't feel a need for this one. I do like it though.

    Glad the error's fixed up. This is a good idea cause I like the red and black Prime but I dont know about spending $40 for it, this is a really hack version of Armada Prime and no Minicon is just cheap, but it's alternative at least.

    If I didn't have a kitbash planned, I'd be passing on it. I was going to get one to keep as Prime, untill I found out they didn't bother to give him a proper key slot. That particular mold would have been pretty easy to modify for that, too.

    Eh, screw the gimmick I never liked that about the figure to begin with. I would hope they take out the mechinism and just make him nice and posable.

    Is that a blue E-Starscream in the packaging? I first thought the Robot Masters Smokescreen repaint, but he isn't that big.:sly:

    Hate to ruin the party, but in this new photo the sheaths are pulled out to cover his fists, thus allowing the bend. Still looks mis-assembled to me.

    Unfortunately but I believe what Cheebs said is correct.

    He looks great though. I may buy two though since I want to give Armada Nemesis Prime some grey instead of all the tan.

    Also concur with Cheebs and the Nemesis Prime idea is a good one!:thumb 

    P.S. Since I'm now fairly sure this Bendy Prime will have the Magnus error, I've picked up a good set of precison screwdrivers. It's a good set to have for Transformers repairs anyway.

    I am not sure if I want it, but I do want that cyber key. He should have gotten a modified matrix key though.

    Is there some Law that we don't know about that prevents Hasbro from doing repaints that make sense?

    Like an orange and Red Divebomb?
    A Twin-Twist Menasaur?
    a sunstorm Cybertron Starscream?
    a Huffer schemed IronSide
    a brawn strongarm?
    ETC...ETC.....

    Menasor isn't even out in most markets yet and you already want a repaint???

    Supreme Cybertron Starscream as Sunstorm? You want to repaint a relatively shelf-warming giant expensive toy in garish orange colours to represent (to the general public) an obscure character? They can do it for the LOC since its cheap and cheerful. They can probably do it for the Voyager-sized version.

    Whose's Ironside??? We already have a perfectly good Huffer with Armorhide.

    We already have a reasonable Brawn coloured mini-4WD with Overhaul. And given his design and personaly, was probably meant to be Brawn in the first place, if only they had that name.

    yawn, Oh yeah, the pics. I already have both armada versions of this guy. Prime and Nemisis Prime. Tis enough for me. They ONLY cybertron figures I still have interest in getting are Unicron and Primus. I am saving the rest for the Classics.
