    If that one recent rumor is true ("bringing back a dead line" or however it was worded), the plans to "add another one" are already in the works. Armada's 20th is only about four years away.

    I've got this pain in my hip, see... my eyes are getting bad... arthritis will be starting in a few years...

    Doing the math, there's virtually no more in-show characters in Armada than there is in Beast Wars. It's like fewer than twenty molds, not counting Mini-Cons that would end up as pack-in accessories anyway.

    People need to remember that Armada Prime came second in the fan vote. I'd say there's decent demand, even in Japan alone.

    So far I think the only thing we have besides a bunch of HE TELL ME is that image of Cyclonus that noone knows what it is.

    That one. I think it was debunked as a 3p figure, though.

    Mmm, doesn't look like any 3P figure we know though, this one looks very refined.


    But looks like it does not transforms IMO.

    The movie was a flop overall. Has Takara been celebrating it before?.

    I think the chosen for MP versions from Armada could be:

    Optimus Prime (repainted into Nemesis Prime)
    Hot Shot
    Starscream
    Megatron

    Yeah, I thought in another characters too, but my spider sense thinks if they include Armada in the main line, they only will do a few figures

    However, if they choose to start a new line, then I can see more characters (could be fantastic if they do Jetfire and Overload with the ability to merge with Optimus Prime)

    If and that's a big IF, that thing is real it would be kinda left field to me. I really didn't think he would get released before Galvatron. I will say though that it is always good to see more Decepticons! :)  Has anybody claimed ownership of this yet? I'm not trying to start anything false, nor do I want to start raising false hopes but I remember MP-36 got started off kinda the same way. If it's already been disproven I will go back to shutting up. :D

    I dont know if we're getting a new Prime, we're probably not getting a Galvatron in the same year. It would be nice to see a movie character, Hot Rod and Magnus need company. If they hadn't announced Prowl+ and hinted at TB/ Hoist, I would be keeping my fingers crossed for a Kup and Blitzwing/Cyclonus announcement. Im just hoping they announce something soon and reissue Cheetor, cause he's kind of expensive now:(

    Going by the leaks from august and the favoritism of ROTF in the Studio Series line.

    We most likely are going to get a buster MPM Prime.

    No-no. Not Nemesis, but FINAL BATTLE Optimus Prime. I really hope TT announces a MP Armada Optimus simply because it means we will likely get a Final Battle deco which is probably my favourite colours for Optimus Prime. It's one of the two Armada moulds I still have (Megatron being the other).

    But it does mean it's a potentially interesting mould for TT. They get at least three cartoon based releases: regular, Nemesis and Final Battle.

    I'm convinced there is an obscure, forgotten Seeker.
    I'm also convinced this obscure Seeker is taking vengeance on us all via our weather.

    It's mid-April and we here in WI are expecting another fragging snow/ice storm on Wednesday, on the heels of the snow/ice storm over the weekend.

    Please Takara or 3P, produce an MP of this pissed off, obscure Seeker and end this neverending winter.
    For the love of Primus (and sanity of the Midwest USA), appease Ice Storm

    Almost every Armada character has a repaint that represents a power up. Cyclonus and Demolishor even have two repaints, counting their Energon decos.

    Yeah, but you live in Wisconsin. That's like daring it to snow. It snowed where I live today too, but you know the difference? I live in Kentucky. Last week we had a high temp of 80. 80! And today it snows. So yeah, I'm with you on the wrath of Ice Storm. And you know, I think he won't even be satisfied with an MP11 repaint. He demands a new mold!
