    Armada Scavenger was one of the standouts in the Armada show but his figure was a complete brick. Yes most Armada toys were but for a significant character, what a shame.

    Anyways I thought Scavenger looked bad ass with his cloak/cape and I thought his appearances in the show were worthwhile. I think he deserves a place in the Generations line as a fully articulated voyager with his cloak/cape.

    For Optimus Prime, bendy deluxe Prime has aged well and is heftier than most current deluxes. For Starscream, we are getting a new Armada Starscream next year, hopefully followed by a Thundercracker repaint and retool into Skywarp.

    I think Armada Scavenger deserves justice. Sure other notable Armada characters like Megatron do too, but this is Scavenger's thread.

    Do you want to see an all new Armada Scavenger voyager figure in the Generations line next year? Discuss!

    Yes. Hadn't thought about it, but I agree with your assessment.

    Yes, I love the design, the character was alright, but the toy was garbage.

    No. I would much rather have an updated Armada Demolisher, and/or Sideways.

    Hmm... that's actually a really, really interesting idea that I don't believe I've seen come up in other CHUG discussions.

    I really do like the character of Scavenger, and I like his design, but one look at the toy told me how much I do not need it.

    A new Scavenger? Hell yeah I'd be on board. And worst case scenario, if he's got a flipping insignia gimmick (like Dinobot), he'd make a pretty good regular Classics Scavenger, too.

    Those 2 would be more appropriate for deluxes.

    Sure.

    But not before FoC Grimlock into Transmetal BW Megatron. Whatever happened to that, by the way?

    Considering this is all hypothetical, I wouldn't treat this as a "this or that" kind of thing.

    Assume Sideways, Demolishor, and everyone else are already coming, and just vote on whether you want Scavenger, not who you'd rather see.

    He was one of my first TFs, so I'd buy a new toy of him.

    I'm down for almost any Armada redo. Armada being the first Transformers toy line that I was completely into I remember so many of the characters fondly. I haven't really been motivated to buy too many transformers lately but this Armada Starscream is something I need. So in short, Yes, Scavenger would be awesome!

    Yes! Especially because the ruber treads on my Armada Scavenger snaped off a few months ago.

    Sure, but I'd rather have others like Sideways and Demolisher. I'll take all the Armada I can get, though.
