    I want a jetfire, Overload, tidal wave, and unicron ;) 

    And some minicon packs.

    They should start doing minicon packs after prime and megatron are both launched. I think a FH Armada Star Saber / dark saber would be amazing.

    And honestly I'd buy other MP scaled Armada characters. Some of those designs (like Scavenger) still stand out to me as very cool.

    Nice, I must have missed this shot in the promo pics floating around. I'm really hoping they give us a proper Tidal Wave, but if not at least he can pull off this configuration and it wouldn't be hard to make the armor myself.

    I just want a titan-sized Tidal Wave personally.

    Then again a Tidal Wave that combines with Megatron would probably be much cheaper. Since it would be much smaller and Tidal Waves combination isn't exactly the most complex thing in the world.

    Tidal Wave's combination with Megatron depended on 1) very sturdy elbow joints, which I have never seen replicated elsewhere so successfully, 2) Megatron having very limited leg articulation.

    Once you make a posable Megatron, combining with a larger Tidal Wave figure is not really an option.

    Has it been stated somewhere that Fans Hobby will be doing a Tidal wave figure? I’m all for it depending how well built Megatron will be to support the combined mode. But I could see him in their Overlord scale.

    It's mostly wishful thinking since Jetfire and Overload are next for Armada Autobots over characters like Hot Shot and Red Alert since they combine with Prime.

    In terms of Armada Decepticons I'd honestly be shocked if they did Tidal Wave next over say Starscream or Demolisher (please Demolisher).

    Extrapolating from that we can assume that they'll also be doing Energon Wing Saber and Omega Supreme to go with their take on Energon Optimus and, if we assume that they intend to do a Cybertron Optimus as well (which, given that they've done/are doing Armada and Energon Optimus, is a safe bet), we can also assume they'll be doing Leobreaker and Cybertron Wing Saber.

    I'd be completely fine with a titan class Tidal Wave and faux parts to combine with Megatron

    So was it discussed at all about maybe changing the horns to be more accurate to the show or toys?

    Everything I've been onboard with except how they look. They're just too off.

    people asked the same thing about Prime's super mode ears. FansHobby did listen and give us extra ear pieces that are more screen accurate. I think if you ask enough they will listen.

    How long in development did FH make the alternate horns? Cause since this guy is expected to come out in Q4 of this year it may or may not be too late for enough people to hit FH up on it or else it might be an upgrade piece.

    Around this stage of development I think. I personally am fine with the horns as is and really hope we get more news on the guy soon

    Yeah I like the horns here as well. The only upgrade I want really from FH for their Armada stuff so far would probably be Naval Commander's core bot head. It's a good head, I'd just like if they made one with an altered face and eye area to make it more accurate.

    Sharper mouthplate and a blue face rather than the gray, that's mostly what it's missing. Some trim around the gold on his crest maybe, not sure how much that varied between shots and toys

    I think it was around this stage as well. Prime was also supposed to come out in winter but then it didn't. so there is probably still enough time for them to include extra horns if they feel we want it.

    The silver frame on the gold crest is only on Mortal Combat Optimus Prime, though I think it also appeared in some errors. It was pretty consistently blue. The screencaps you showed are just very good 'shops from Mortal Combat.

    Where'd you see that date?? I'm not doubting, just curious since I haven't seen any updates in a long time on this guy.

    On Fans Hobby's post about him when they revealed the name and second redesign.
    Log into Facebook

    They said that the targeted date is Q4 of 2021, meaning this guy will be a great (possibly early) Christmas present.

    I love what they’ve done, however I fear this thing is going to win awards for its remarkable back-heaviness… or it’s ability to defy physics and easily balance that bfg…

    edit- I also wish the front page was updated with pics :/
