    Hasbro seeing FH's Armada selling like insanity and so finally jumping in on the action with Prime.

    The forearms and grille definitely resemble what we saw from that old prototype, but I would expect this is going to be a completely new mold to fit with the current line.

    I'd can definitely see Armada fans making Hasbro do a reverse ER Optimus if the art's blue eyes is somehow accurate (probably not but it would be kind of funny).

    It better be the prototype. Just sell it as a commander class. Would be ridiculous to design a figure that looks that good and not release it.

    That's definitely the same grill and other smaller details line up. This figure returns, probably the commander class for this year?

    From the angled lines on the grill the artwork is actually based on the wonderfest design, wouldn't look deeper into it tho because box art has tended to use older figures as reference

    So hyped for this! I'd love for this to be the prototype, but I'll take just about any Armada Optimus.

    I'M GONNA NEED TO CHANGE MY PROFILE PIC ON THE DOUBLE HOLY SHIP HOLY SHIP HOLY SHIP HOLY SHIP!!!

    Looks like Commander Motormaster was enough to convince them that they could do Armada Optimus right? They kinda share the same hallmarks, come to think of it.

    (Side note: I remember we had a thread for when the prototype showed up. Should we bring that back and merge it with this one or nah?)
