    Hey guys, is the small Armada Optimus Prime (the one without the trailer) and the repaints worth picking up?

    Well, that's the only armada Prime that I own, and I think he is. After messing around with the larger one, I'm glad I paid $10 instead of $40,, minus the combining factor of course that the larger one has.

    This toy got me back into tfs. I really like it. I have all 3 versions that were released in America, and I would love to someday get the crystal Japanese version.

    It's a great figure. Very well articulated. Grab one and try it out!

    I have every version of the Deluxe mold, and I'm only missing the jungle colored Costco Energon superbase version, and the slight gold kmart repaint.

    I love them all, especially the DX Convoy Takara toy...

    The smaller one is nice as a "combat hero" type character. Very fun to mess about with.
    Which repaints do you mean, though?

    I have them all and love them all. They are well worth the money, but do hunt around, there are some great deals to be had on the exclusive Japanese versions.

    The 2nd best figure of all time! WHOO!

    Bendy Prime rocks. He's one of my favorites. He's been the focus of a few of my TF comics in the Funnies forum. Even got the Magnus repaint in on the action, in the newest one.

    It's a great figure, with almost as much personality, as it has articulation.

    Bendy is much more poseable then the big version which = much much better. So yeah, it's worth it. I don't have nemesis Prime or Ultra magnus so i cann't say which color scheme's best though.

    I would actually say that Ultra Magnus is my favorite coloring for this mold. But it was also the first version of it that I got though.

    Bendy Prime is one of my fave Armada molds. Big thumbs up for it.

    The Ultra Magnus and the Nemesis Prime repaint. The black one is called Nemesis Prime right?

    Thanks for the feedback folks!

    It's a great mold, easily one of the best in recent years. Definately track down at least one of them.
