    I'm in complete shock at how good they made Fatimus look.

    This looks so good. E Prime was a blast, my first Zord.

    Maybe it's just pure nostalgia for me.

    I almost broke and got Selects Hot Shot, but haven't taken that step yet. Saw Siege Galaxy Prime once in the wild, but didn't snag him. They just didn't have the same feel as the originals.

    Cool, not my jam but it's cool Fans Hobby is ticking off every Optimus they can in their chunky style.

    Nearly wants me to forgive the Energon series... nearly. But a much better look - hope we see the inner bot himself!

    Here's hoping they show off other configurations tomorrow. And what the drill opens up for, maybe another super attack mode like NC has?

    This is great and all but Fanshobby NEVER properly released their Naval Commander and now it\'s sold out on all online retailers except eBay. I hate it when 3rd party companies give a release date and never really follow through on them or a estimate just to postpone then to get it completely sold out , it\'s so annoying

    He looks pretty good, but my fave Energon Prime configuration is helicopter and firetruck for the arms, submarine and drill tank for legs, so I'm going to need to see that before 100% decide.

    They've confirmed you can do that configuration if you want to, and I shall be doing that for mine. Also, that’s probably one of my favourite moments from Armada. It’s just so stupid yet the energy that radiates is unbelievable.

    That's possible. Fans Hobby said they can all be arms and legs, they just wanted to show one that is traditionally an arm (the copter) and one that's traditionally a leg (dill) as arms to show they can and viscera.

    That configuration is probably my favourite, but I also like the opposite configuration when Prime got them back from Omega. I remember being so excited as a kid when they came back only for them to disappear again the next episode and I was like "wait what? Where'd they go?"

    Between this and their Armada Optimus, Fans Hobby are really stepping up the "Bring Back the Unicron Trilogy" game.

    The ball is still on Takara and Hasbro's court, but the score is now 2 to none.

    I actually forgot about him. Has he come out yet?

    OOOH, that coloring makes him look even more scrumptious…

    How does the core bot compare to what we saw in the anime? Because even the core bot is looking mightier fine that fatimus prime…

    So great in color, it hurts…
