    Nah, the toy's talking gimmick was probably jammed or something in that picture.

    The original Armada Optimus toy has a springloaded talking faceplate gimmick, the mouthplate can sometimes end up offset because of it.

    EDIT: Kaynowa's a ninja.

    I never noticed the Primal homage damn. I was always focused on how much Armada's animation improves by the end.
    Mine's been offset for almost 20 years.

    Now you mention it, I love gow they held off on promoting the Supercon repaint until this final episode. It would have been easy enough to repaint Prime after the Nemesis Prime encounter, same as the other Powerlinx repaints. But by holding off, the new colours are a visual representation of how Unicron has corrupted Prime when he issues his challenge to Galvatron in that final episode, and their fight is repowering Unicron by itself.

    Am I the only one who thinks that the altmode needs hinges to allow the lights to be positioned horizontally?

    Reminds me of Alt Universe Prime being grayscale except for the orange in the matrix chamber. I bet a fully painted Matrix would look great in a white death-scene prime release

    I agree, I think that would help the altmode.

    I know Fanshobby would probably never do it since these guys don’t even have altmodes but it would be amazing if they made Decepticlone figures.

    I could've seen FH doing this if they jumped on Armada right after doing the mosnterbots when they had found success with some pretty obscure characters. Now tho, I don't really see it happening

    i think their's a good chance that fanshobby's armada line may sell even better than the masterforce stuff since there seems to be a decent demand for ut or more specifically armada so i think there's a possibility fans hobby may do the decepticlones, since they dont have transformations they could be made quicker and sold cheaper and would be great for army building

    Armada has the advantage of an even bigger western presence than it has in Japan.

    I mean, Micron Legend is pretty fucking big there, given this Prime was 2nd in that MP poll that Star Saber won

    I don't know how successful they've been with the Monsterbots. They're always selling out of the Masterforce characters, but they seem to have an infinite supply of Monsterbots.
    Don't get me wrong, I love them from a quality perspective. But they appear to have not sold as well.
