    Ok, the line had lots of really bad toys - Hot Shot & Sideswipe for example. But some were really great - Tidal Wave, Jetfire and of course Unicron.

    My favourite happens to be Supercon "Bendy" Prime. Loads better than his Leader version and included lots of articulation and could even pull the Leaders trailer.

    So what's yours ?

    I'm gonna have to go with Bendy Prime as well, since I have nothing but love for the Armada OP design. Though IMO the proportions are a bit off, so it doesn't have quite the same look of power as the Superbase version.

    If they had bothered to give Megatron functional hips and knees though, then here would have been no competition. That is a bad-ass design ruined by poor engineering!

    Armada Hot Shot isn't a bad toy, especially with Jolt. Great for kids at least :D 

    My favourite is Jetfire (have Micron Legend one), Starscream and Nemesis Prime. If not for Jetfire I wouldn't have been here. I always have a soft spot for Rampage (Wheeljack) as well. Actually Megatron/Galvatron is a fun toy, too. Shockwave (Tidal Wave) is cool just standing....


    I like Armada/Micron Legend.

    I really love Starscream aswell, if he had just had head articulation and better legs he would have been fantastic

    Unicron for sure, Was Overload Armada or Energon? Either way I liked that one too, although he was a bit of a parts-former he looked kewl.

    Definitely Unicron, although Nemesis Prime and Hoist are tied for a close second.

    Armada Jetfire. Really awesome design, great use of the Mini-con (abit the alt. mode looses the front landing gear if you loose Commetor), really awesome (if too-easily triggered) sound effects, and he was voiced by Scott McNeil. His legs are a little akward and suffer from him being a prime super-mode upgrade, but for what it is, he's actually got decent leg articulation (side-to-side ratcheting ankles also open the door WIDE open for battle stance posing).

    Arm. Starscream is a close second. He was my first Decepticon toy, and I just love the face sculpt!

    As a younger child, I used to love Hotshot and Jolt. I still kinda like that figure.

    What I always liked about him was how his gun came off of back assembly and he could hold it so he didn't have a spare hand

    I'd have to say bendy prime, or in my case bendy nemesis prime, and unicron. Those are the only 2 Armada figures I'm keeping. Thought Hoist wasn't a bad mold either, but I have the Cybertron longrack version.
