    Oh man, I know they are digibashes, but it really brings it to life. I'm really enjoying the photo's of this guy that keep coming along.

    I didn't get Naval Commander as I couldn't get past his chest grill looking too small, though I've been told it's less bothersome in person. But I'm still holding hope the Takara one from a few years ago gets released eventually. I'm glad they've reworked the shoulders, they look a lot better to me, pretty much my only issue with this guy are that the horns are stylised from the original Armada, not in a bad way, they just look different to the antlers I'm used to, but those digibashes actually makes them look alright to me.

    I don't think this figure would scale with the Takara one though, but this looks like it might be an awesome display piece all by itself. Price depending I'm seriously considering picking this up now.

    Yeah, this guy is meant for MP, while Takara's is for CHUG.
    Maybe his Super Mode would be around this guy's height like it was in some shots of the show.

    Love that game! Played it countless times, yet still go back to it every now and then; mainly for the boss battles.

    Side-note: as much as you don't want your character getting all beat up, there is something wickedly satisfying about watching Prime getting rag-dolled by Megs there :ev: 

    Define a great transformers game: it makes you go out and buy every toy that appeared in it - even ones you'd previously sworn you wouldn't get (Armada Megatron in particular; I already had the mold thanks to Armada Galvatron, but after playing this I just HAD to get Megs too)!

    Same, It's one of my favorite PS2 games and I never get tired of it. I've even tried to speedrun it but I kinda suck at that lol. I've managed to beat it in around around 2 hours at least.

    I'd assume either it's for the Tank turret mounting on the chest, and or a potential Tidal Wave release, to allow the combination.
    Or it just looks like a combiner peg and isn't.

    Looking at the figure, those connectors on his shoulders better be strong enough to hold all that weight/stress and not break like their naval commander.

    Never thought it was, just playing "What if..?"

    Although, if someday, might be interesting if someone tackled an update of the Energon combiners or the tiny Mini-Con ones

    A remaster would be great along with a Demolisher boss fight and a Decepticon campaign. I think I remember a rumor talking about how there was originally supposed to be a Decepticon campaign but it was cut from production.

    Loving how this thing is coming out! Now that the fixed reissue for Prime is out, definitely gonna go in on all of this Armada stuff. Only thing with Megatron i'm a bit iffy on are his shoulders, which I think could have been done a bit better, but aren't bad by any stretch in their current form, and his evil grin unpainted just looks a bit uncanny to me, haha. Probably will look better when finished.

    Ok DAMN I gotta pick up the game sooner or later LMAO

    I love they kept so many of the "gimmicks". That really made Megatron's tank mode.

    I'd probably guess anywhere from $150-$180 based on the prices of their previous figures.
    Hope so anyway.

    I need a giant Tidal Wave in my life, like yesterday. Make it big enough to work as a mainline Titan class and I'll be overjoyed
