    I know it was unlikely from the start, but it would be pretty cool if they included Over-Run with Naval Commander as one of his guns.
    Only time he was ever on screen was in the opening for Micron Legend.

    Other than that he came with all (or maybe most of) the bendy Primes. One of them he was even fucking dead.

    Yep. And that's all you get of him outside the Armada/Energon comic.

    Yeah didnt he give Optimus the matrix?

    Side note to anyone one who has it: Can sparkplug hug the matrix? I know he can hold it but do the shoulder joints cross his torso enough for a hug?

    Really great actually! The combined mode has stability issues but the robots modes are incredible. I won’t get too off topic in the thread here but they get a strong recommendation from me!
    Also LOL to that first part.

    In the picture there are six, but one is a duplicate (Energon Space Team).

    Spent the time to watch a review of this thing out of pure curiosity.....First time in my life a completely indifferent figure has called me so hard to buy it. I wont but still, thats an impressive piece by all accounts.

    Well done FansHobby really well done!

    Hey everyone, I don't frequent these threads much or even anything around 3P, but I got Naval Commander as a huge Armada fan and have been loving him. I just noticed a crack on the back panel though that sits behind his head in the standard robot mode. I understand FH is offering replacements? How do I go about getting these and is this the normal place that cracks that they are replacing for?

    Their Facebook seems to be the most sure way to message them. Give your figure a good once over, because cracks can form just about anywhere

    Besides ShowZ, are there any other reliable sellers who are getting the second run? Don't really trust BBTS as they weren't transparent about which stock they had.

    Is there some way to tell visually (without opening the box either) whether you've got a V1 or V2? would be nice if there's something subtle - like an add-on sticker somewhere on the box - clearly identifying which one you have.
